Conclusion: The Bose AE2i are fantastically comfortable headphones that are great for portable use. They cost a little too much more than the remote-free AE2 in most retailers, but make great commuter cans. Sound is balanced and enjoyable too, although rival manufacturers do offer headphones at the price with either more exciting or more high-end sound.
Bose AE2i review: Comfortable but expensive headphones with good sound
Good Gear Guide.au
2 June 2012
Summary: Bose’s AE2i headphones, which now have an in-line volume control for iPod and iPhone support, are reasonably well constructed and comfortable. They also sound good, but they’re expensive and lack Bose’s signature noise cancelling -- which appears on the company’s more expensive (and better built) headphones.
Pros: Comfortable, Well built, Good bass and detailed soundstage
Cons: Expensive, Build quality not as good as pricier Bose models
