QC30 - feature request: a quick method to disable Noise Cancellation
The Bose QuietControl® 30 earphones are a joy. I was happy with my QC25 headphones, but I wanted the freedom of movement that comes with wireless. The QC30 are so comfortable and convenient that I wear them a lot more than the QC25.
I also appreciate the QuietControl aspect of being able to set the level of noise cancellation that is applied.
I have a feature request.
I'd like to be able to defeat the noise cancellation in one step and be able to return to the previous level in one step. If I were designing this I would do this:
- Press both noise control buttons simultaneously to toggle the noise cancellation to the 0 level of noise control and then back to the what is was before. This is easily done with one hand.
This would save me from having to press the buttons 2-20 times to do the same thing.
What I actually do, is just pull the earphones out when I need to have a quick conversation with someone. I'd prefer to be able to leave them in and just toggle the noise cancellation with a single action.
I have the luxury of working in what I thought was a quiet workspace, but the QC30 have removed most of the low-frequency mechanical noise. These are sounds that I didn't notice: the air conditioning compressor, the motor of the central air fan, the refrigerator. Gone. And the experience of being able to remove it is a revelation.
