Summary: Love these headphones. The sound is very clear and the ear cups fit very comfortably over the ears, and don't feel comebersome. They fold very easily and fit very nicely in the zippered case that was included.
Bose is a Leader for a reason - They deliver the goods.

Summary: I own QC 3s, QC 15s, and these OE2i headphones. Bose makes an absolutely superior product. The sound quality on the OE2i model is amazing: The mixes are even and full, and they have the capacity to play at very loud intervals. They are also incredibly lightweight and fold up to almost nothing. The pads are soft & comfortable, and the design is pleasant.
Summary: I've had these for a very long time now and they still look and sound great. The fact that it works brilliantly with iOS devices is perfect for me. Watch out though, the remote does not work with Android devices (it doesn't advertise that anyway, so that's clear).
Summary: Sources: iPhone5 alone, iPhone5 with FiiO E07k using LOD, iPhone5 with Decware Zen Head amp, various computers using the Audioengine D3 DAC/amp. The Bose OE2i (same as OE2 except Apple cable) is one of the niftiest headphone designs I've ever seen, fitting into the supplied zippered case that's 5.0 x 5.25 x 1.5 inches thick when closed. This case can even fit into an ordinary man's jeans back pocket, although you would not want to sit on it.
