Excerpt: Although it never really disappeared, Bose is back with a new and refreshing line of audio gear designed to be more stylish compared to the company's previous mundane yet iconic products. The newly redesigned SoundTrue series of on-ear and over-ear headphones, which replace Bose's tried and true AE2i model, are being offered in a wide range of color styles and two-tone designs.
Excerpt: Bose has never been an especially fashionable brand for headphones. They’re usually serious, finished in blacks and bright silver. The new FreeStyle, though, is a more modern, more stylish take on some high quality earphones from one of the world’s most iconic headphone companies.
The sound quality from these earbuds is exceptional, but the colour scheme is a little odd

Summary: If you can get around the cringeworthy colour schemes, the Bose Freestyle in-ear headphones will prove a valuable long-term investment. We emphasise ‘long-term’ because they aren’t cheap for a set of earbuds which can very easily be damaged. Bose does include a useful zip-up wallet with the headphones which we recommend you use to ensure longevity.
Pros: Unbiased sound, Excellent clarity and detailed reproduction
Excerpt: Bose has been in the audio game a long time, and the company has rightfully earned a reputation for quality sound … unfortunately, its products tend to be priced accordingly. Take the awesome-sounding QuietComfort 20i earphones , which will run you $279 (about £167, AU$302).
