GREAT sound but pricy

Anonymous, Newegg
24 November 2010
  • Summary: Buy an inexpensive portable mixer such as a Behringer Xenyx 802 (about $50 at Guitarcenter or am*zon) and tweak the left and right channels individually, this will open up an entirely new world of SUPER CLEAN j*zz in ya pants sound...especially if you love bass heavy music..
  • Pros: Initially...EXTREMELY comfy...sound is SUPERB. Very clean separation of sound...you WILL hear sheizz you didnt realize was there in the tracks.
  • Cons: Crazy expensive...but if you can afford it...well worth it. After about 1+ hours non-stop listening the headphones become VERY NOTICEABLY tight to the point of being uncomfortable. Also I've had these for nearly 2 years and the (replaceabe) ear cups are fraying which is kinda disappointing for a ...

My first set of real headphones

Ryan J., Newegg
5 April 2009
  • Summary: There are many far-better purchases that you can make from Sennheiser and Grado. I have liked these headphones, and I probably will keep them until I once again can hear a much larger range of frequencies and a higher-definition in sounds than I currently can.
  • Pros: OK. They sound really good. I have no music higher than CD quality, and these have served me well. I've had them stepped on by my little sister, who totally twisted the carp* out of the rotatable ear-parts, and the headphones still worked like new right afterward, with no long-term effects on its...
  • Cons: These are too expensive for what they have. There are comparable models available from Sennheiser and Grado that are much less expensive than Bose's (this model of Bose headphones in particular). I've had these for a year or so now, and the ear-pads are starting to lose some padding integrity--me...

premium phones

  • Summary: The one thing you will not need with the Bose is any type of bass boost circuitry just shut it all off and enjoy these cans. Has any one noticed all those reviews on other cans where they claim the bass is flat however they have to add up to +12db to extract a desirable amount of bass?
  • Pros: I’ll start by saying I am tired of reading all the reviews that state “exaggerated bass” lets try this the Bose on ear triports have successfully designed a very efficient method to bring out that bass that is in most cans but only Bose patented Triport Method can deliver that bass to your ears. ...
  • Cons: One star is lost because the ear cushion replacement kit is no where to be had

Don't just listen to your music experience your music.

Allen D., Newegg
19 March 2008
  • Summary: These headphones will not out perform a well tuned stereo or other high-end sound systems but they will beat most stock computer speaker systems any day. The sound device you plug these headphones into should have high-end sound quality itself if you want to get the full experience of what the...
  • Pros: The BOSE On-Ear headphones are leading class headphones with an experience and sound quality all their own. They really are a cut above all other headphones I have tried. The sound is so rich and full you could forget that you really listening to headphones and not speakers if you didn’t feel the...
  • Cons: At ~$200 they don’t come cheap. If your not careful the headphones can provide sure a strong experience that you make your ears sore until you get use to the headphones specially with louder heavier music.

Decent Headphones, but...

Anonymous, Newegg
30 January 2008
  • Summary: I am certainly no audiophile, but I know when I listen to music I want to hear great music that sounds awesome. These headphones are a pretty good replacement for regular headphones but I don't think that they are worth the price.
  • Pros: The bass on these headphones is awesome! Some people may see this as a flaw but I like that the cord comes apart at the headphone. To me that is a feature that saves the headphones from accident stepping on the cord and standing up. Another feature that I like about these headphones is the case t...
  • Cons: As Euphrentic told it very well in the other review, the headphones really do excel in the bass department. The mids and highs lack unfortunately. On a regular ipod with the equalizer flat they sound much better than a regular set of headphones, but on my computer I really have to tweak with the ...

Comfortable

CHRISTOPHER M., Newegg
27 December 2007
  • Summary: Bose quality... Yeah their the big brand.. and your paying partically for the name.. But unfortunately the price is justified.
  • Pros: Hello all, i'm what you'd call a Techy. I've gone through my share of headphones and i can really say these are my favorite so far. They are quite comfortable even when they are sitting on your ears for a while. The sound quality is also superb.
  • Cons: These are quite costly. For someone that doesn't need to spend this much i'd suggest shopping around for something as comfortable.. sound quality won't change all too too much (not noticeable to an untrained ear). Creative makes good products as well as sony. These are also not as sturdy as i wou...

  • Excerpt: In the box уou will find the SoundTrue heаdphones, а cаrrуing cаse аnd the cord to connect the heаdphones to а device. I like thаt the cord cаn be completelу removed from the heаdphones which mаkes the cord eаsу to replаce.
