I thought we werent legally allowed to use earphones for ipods, phones etc when driving a car?  Or was that law never passed?

I wear them under my motorbike helmet -  fantastic for drowning out drone yet you can still hear traffic horns and engine. 

MHH, whats the sound quality of the buds you have?  Presently I'm using Shure's Beats and Audio tecknica but still looking at refining sound.

Futurism, you're a bit of a sound man, any suggestions?

I listened to Internet radio briefly though my iPhone plugged into the Bose for a while on the way to Pt Augusta but after that I unplugged the music source and just used the NC feature. Let me answer your question after my flight today.

Just bought these for my OS trip.

I've taken a long time to own a pair of decent headphones.

Scud how do you find the qc3, my beats headphone broke last week I was thinking of buying the qc15. I also wear them in the gym so need something which isn't to bulky as well

they are very comfortable to start with but then say 30 mins later they hurt parts of my ear where they push against. Maybe I should of gone with the ones with the big cups, but that would probably hurt different parts of my ears where they touch.

I've got big ears so maybe it's just me?

I might buy the cup ones to compare.

a lot of review have complained about the pressure of the cups on the ears and that it becomes difficult to wear after periods of time.  Hows the sound?

sound is excellent but I have nothing to compare it with.

Have complaints been about both types, my type and the cup types?

QC15 has the cup type and I've been reading reviews saying that it can be a bit uncomfortable to wear after period of time.

I have the qc15's and recently used them a lot while traveling. Found them to cause a pressure difference and made my ears pop a bit. This was only while flying.


All other aspects are great
