Excerpt: Great headphone, BOSE's standard sound quality, light and comfortable but the bluetooth reach is not good enough (very poor) and the audio cable (wtih the 3.5mm plug)for use the headphone whitout bluetooth is incredibly fragile! No noise cancellation is the most CONS! Sennheiser MM 450-X is a better choice....
Pros: Fits well in ear, Good Sound, Lightweight, Long Battery Life
Cons: Fragile Audio Cable, Poor Bluetooth Signal, Spotty Signal
Summary: I would expect more from Bose but again this is their first Bluetooth wireless headphones they made. They have to add some VOLUME first then up the BASS and you might have something there. The separation sounds great but lacks the punch that drives the speaker. Maybe the next version will do better.
Pros: Light weight,Bose name tag and wireless.
Cons: Lacks Volume and Bass output not enough drive through all the levels of sounds.
Summary: I have always wanted some nice home listening head phones. I thought by going with Bose, I couldn't lose. Bose has always been a favorite product of mine. Back in the 80s, I had the privilege of listening to my ex-girlfriend's parents hi-fi system with Bose reflecting speakers. I told myself, "I would like to have some of those speakers one day".
Pros: Very comfortable headphones, sealed for home listening.
Summary: good product let down by poor battery life. Lasts 2-3 hours max before you have to recharge again. If I had known this I would certainly not have bought it as I already have an excellent set of bose noise cancelling headphones.
Summary: When i first ordered these headphones I had never tried both the ae2ws or mdr1's . I could not find any direct comparisons and since the bose were £20 cheaper than the sony mdrs i though i would give them a shot. The packaging was sub-par and had very less emphasis however the packing doeskin really matter to me.
