Review: Bose QuietComfort 15 Noise Canceling Headphone

This is an article I never thought I’d write. I sold hi-fi (well, Circuit City’s version of “hi-fi”) within sight of The Mountain. I developed early an audiophile’s distain for the four-letter marketing juggernaut. When I began reviewing audio, I couldn’t imagine a situation where I’d review a Bose product. Certainly not something like the market-leading QuietComfort 15 noise-canceling headphone, Not without heavy doses of irony, snark, and derision.And yet, it is my fiduciary duty to give credit where credit is due.So behold — not only my first review of a Bose product, but a positive one at that.
