As an owner of the Quiet Comfort 2 headphones, I can testify that these are the best noise-cancelling headphones on the market. They run from a single AAA cell and have helped me through several international long-distance flights. They were expensive, but worth it. I think the QC-3 headphones though are a step in the wrong direction. Now you're being charged an extra 50 bucks for a special rechargeable battery and a power supply. I really don't need another power supply in my life, and the beauty of the QC2 is that a (rechargeable) AAA battery can be bought anywhere. They always run out when you least expect (like 29,000 feet). 349 bucks is too much, so Bose is pricing themselves out of the market.
