Yes, the noise cancellation feature is not required to use them to listen, you will just have no cancellation of noise. If their is no charge in battery, they still work....same as turning off the cancel feature.
I have not had the earlier models, but what I can say is, it is fantastic for the price. It truly mutes all surroundings. For example I had to install AC in my window where I keep my mining rigs to keep things cool. These headphones literally blocked all noise from the ac. As it goes for cars, you cannot hear them. Plugs bleed very little outside noise, and that helps a great deal. I really love these things for the price!
The audio is definitely more clear when you have the "noise cancel" function on. You can't hear the white noise in the background of the audio, but it does make the audio more clear.
The noise canceling function will be useless. But you can put the music up real loud and that too might do the trick. It doesn’t even block the noise from a fan. So don’t expect much from these.
I never had the Bose qc20 earbuds but I did have the $125 top of the line (at the time) Bose earbuds which were very comfortable and bass heavy. The TaoTronics are very comfortable as well but are much louder than my older Bose. Note: my older bose earbuds were not noise cancelling, they were the opposite you could hear things well if volume was not way up. Therefore I never wore them to bed. Hope that helps.
