Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noice Cancelling Headphones

I am immensely gratified to note that I have transformed myself to a Gadget Geek over the past couple of years after being afraid of new gadgets or any kind of hardware for long. To let you in on a secret, I haven't yet touched a Gameboy or a XBox or any gaming console yet!

I wrote about being a pioneer in adopting iPhone as a personal 'machine' around a year ago. Now that I realize what a Gadget-Freak I have become, I will take it upon myself to write about some of the gadgets that are employed in making my life fuller and richer. Today, I want to talk about the Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones.

As usual it took me a while to put the gadget into use from the time I bought it. In this case it took almost a month!

The Headphones were surprisingly easy to figure out and include it's management & maintenance in my regular life. And it has been awesome to use.

The noise canceling feature is incredible - even without switching on the headphones, I just have to put on the headphones to avail myself of some quiet time where ever I am. The music on my iPhone is sweeter with these headphones. I am one of the few people who have these expensive headphones on in the PATH trains and the NYC Subways.

A bonus feature I found out after I bought the headphones is that it works as a surprisingly good phone head-set as well! I have been using it to speak over the phone while driving.

Makes me wonder if I wasted my money buying a bluetooth headset. More about that later - after I figure out how to use the bluetooth headset.
