abunda_amazon_reviews I now have purchased, two of these Bose QuietComfort 25, and they are the best ever headphones for noise canceling.......while they worked! (I rarely write reviews for anything). I travel 2-4 times a week on a plane, and I never hear the engine or baby noise. Both pairs died at 12 months, at about the time of the warranty expiration date. The planned obsolescence for failure, in my opinion, to stop at exactly 12 months, is unfortunate. The warranty is not applicable here, unless bought directly through Bose and not Amazon (found that out the hard way of emails). I love Bose, but the gauge of wire used for the internal connection (too thin or loosely soldered), or the planned obsolescence from Bose, is insufficient to last for anyone, that actually uses the headphones on a regular basis. BTW: I own JBL, Sennheiser, Phiaton headphones, as well. Bose, when working are the best noise canceling of the 4 headphones I own....but will not last!!! Please Bose, fix this engineering or accounting problem, for these potentially great headphones. Thank you.
