Bose QuietComfort 15 Headphones do not block out noise.

They work great till I get on a really loud lawn mower, then all I hear is the lawn mower. I have had these headphones may be a month.

Update

Thank you, But the headphones worked great the first few times I used them. Now they pick up the sound of the motor. I bought these headphones for this purpose.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Deb,

Noise cancelling headphones are great for quieting low frequency and ambient sounds; airplane engines, air conditioners etc. But unfortunately don't work as well cancelling mid to high range frequencies. The sound of your mower is likely just too high and loud to be cancelled out by your headphones. I would suggest something that provides more noise isolation, a physical barrier between your ear and the sounds, like ear buds.

My set of QC 15s worked great with one mower. I could listen to podcasts and music with no problem. I recently purchased a new mower and now the noise cancellation pulsates in and out. After doing a bit of quick research I believe there is a frequency difference between the old mower and the new one that is different enough to now make my QC 15s ineffective for use while mowing the lawn.
