Summary: I know people bash on Bose because of they're over priced and I agree. I believe these retail for about $150 or so and I paid $85 for these due to employee discount at where I work. With that being said, I wouldn't recommend anyone pay the full price for these. Do some searching online, if you can trade stuff in somewhere and bring the price down a bit to somewhere the $100 range, then I'd say go for it.
I think these are great for every day use.
Summary: I've had these for a month and a bit, and now it's time for me to review them!
Most important from these is the audio quality. From stock they're a quite balanced headphone, with the classic on-ear phenomenon of a slight bass boost. They have a nice attention to detail, and a semi-shockingly wide soundstage for a small headphone.
Pros: Comfortable, look very nice (in black or white), quite bright sound
Cons: Don't isolate as much as you'd expect, bass could be lower
Summary: So you're buying headphones on AMAZON, its tough, its online, so you've no idea what the sound is like so you might go with the masses..there seems to be DRE BEATS headphones everywhere..so they must be good. Wrong! Ive never put such an over-rated pair of headphones on my head..especially at that price tag, so my search continued. I spent a long time researching headphones and Im not particularly clued up on whats hot n whats not!
Summary: I was torn between the Bose or Dr Dre Beats. I've had the head phones for 6 months now and below are the pros and cons: Pros: - comfortable - well built and do not feel as plastic as the Beats - Sound quality is great. When compared to beats, there's not too much bass and gives a fuller range - Nice and compact hence easy to carry about Cons: - the wire from your device to the headphones is thin and keeps tangling - the wire feels cheap (looks like Bose has cut corners...
A truly balanced and natural sound, however... (update!)

Summary: I have only had a pair of these for a week now and haven't been able to put them down. First off, they are the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn (portable or otherwise). When hunting around for a decent pair of headphones, I tried many brands in shops like Selfridges - who let you try your own music on them. It was soon clear to me that 90% percent of the headphones out there are clearly aimed at those who like to hear nothing but bass in their music.
Summary: The sound from the headphones seems to get better with time. They fold to a very handy size and go into a good case. The only downside I have is that they don't feel secure on my head, being on ear they can move and after a while you may feel a bit of pressure on your ears. They have yet to fall off and I am a fairly fussy person, so the fitting thing may just be me...
