As a fan of the QC 20i's, I have been looking forward to the new QC 30's since I now have a 7+. I fly somewhat frequently and while not an audiophile I absolutely love Bose's NC tech. As much as I love the QC 20i's, the main annoyance I had with them was the control unit dongle thingamabob. I didn't want to have to attach it to the 3.5mm/lightning adapter and then to the iphone. Anyways, I inadvertently came across one at BestBuy. For anyone interested in them, I believe you can find them on the Bestbuy site, as well as Bose.com. I've only played around with it for a bit, but so far I'm impressed. The neckband is comfortable and I like the ability to adjust the amount of ANC. My next scheduled flight isn't for a couple weeks but I plan to try and compare it to my old QC 20i's over the next week or so.
