Garbage. Can I give zero stars?

SaccadicMovements, CNET
14 April 2013
  • Summary: Don't waste your money or your time. Move on to another product. Your music will sound better if you listened through a soup can on a string.
  • Pros: Feels nice on the head, decent passive noise cancelling from the ear cup
  • Cons: Sound quality was awful, misses a wide range of sound frequency, Audio jack is incorrectly sized, if pushed all the way in the connectors miss their targets and the sound reverts back to the speaker of whatever device you are using.

BUY THEM AND IT'LL BE YOUR LAST BOSE PRODUCT.

JavierMatias, CNET
30 June 2012
  • Pros: SOUND IS ok.
  • Cons: BUILD QUALITY IS AS CHEAP AS POSIBLE. THEY FEEL AND LOOK CHEAP. They Bose printed letters fade away in two weeks after buy them. Quality is like 10 dollars headphones, maybe worst.

Quality does not match price. Look elsewhere.

aoporto, CNET
24 April 2012
  • Summary: Unfortunately I'm finding the quality of Bose products does not match up with their great marketing and expensive price. My headphones look brand new, they are lightly used, but the ear cusions are falling apart. They are out of warranty so new cushions will cost more $. They were not built to last and I've hardly used them. I will avoid Bose in the future; their quality is not enough to justify their prices. Sharper Image had great marketing, look what happened to them.
  • Pros: Sound quality is OK, but not in line with what was paid.
  • Cons: Build quality is poor.

Very poor as a headset

MTL, Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I accept that (and for 200 quid they should be) good sound quality, however, when used as a headset for skype/mobile phones on calls etc. they are appalling. The mic is too far away from the mouth to be effective and the units bluetooth capability is really not very good at all, it wont consistently connect to my MAC Air, or android phone it keeps dropping off and says - connection failed!

Broken in 1 year

F. Roche "Ben10", Amazon
8 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought the headphone one year ago and the cable is already broken. When we pay that price, I feel it should last for longer. I precise I used it only with my desktop computer; so normal conditions. Disappointed!

Kein Bass

Jürgen, Amazon
13 December 2014
  • Summary: Leider kommt der Bass bei den Kopfhörer überhaupt nicht zur Geltung. Tut mir leid, aber Musik ohne richtigen Bass zu hören macht einfach keinen Spaß.
