Very interesting headphones, Worth every penny if you want a quality sound and top class noise cancellation
17 July 2014
Summary: Bose have engineered a very clever pair of headphones here, they are quite a few years old but no product can match it's capabilities. The price of the headphones are higher than what most would be prepared to pay, however there is a justification for this. At a retail price of 259 pounds, no matter where you look; the price of a Bose product will always be the same.
Summary: Put simply, these are the best headphones I've ever used. Put with some more detail, the sound quality is excellent, and it works well with a variety of distinctly different musical styles (I tend to listen to everything from Jazz & Blues through to Thrash Metal). The noise cancelling is excellent, but it should be noted that noise cancelling does not mean "you can't hear anything else at all." Instead it remove 'white noise'.
Summary: I was a little loathed to spend this amount on foam earphone pads, given that there were significantly cheaper options. The main reason was that I hadn't replaced the pads before, so wanted something that should be "guaranteed to work and should be good". The replacement turned out to be simple. The minute I put my headphones on I was reminded of how they felt when new (the foam was/is quite solid - perhaps slightly uncomfortably so) but easy to get used to again.
Summary: These are genuine parts. Although there are cheaper copies available. My experience when I bought them was they were poor quality and fell apart quite quickly. These are the real deal. I now have headphones that look and feel new.
Summary: I was a bit uncomfortable about spending so much money on a set of headphones and after purchasing them I was worried I'd been a little rash. But after a few weeks of use I am absolutely delighted with them and don't regret a penny of the money I spent on them. The sound quality is fantastic, partly because of the amazing range of the phones themselves and partly because they block out so much environmental noise.
Summary: I bought this product for my Bose AE2w bluetooth headphones, as they only came with a cloth bag. The headphoes don't quite fit in the case perfectly, but it gives better protection when travelling than the cloth bag supplied would. I also think the case could be a little cheaper.
Summary: Two years and counting, and I'd buy these again without hesitation. I fly on a Twin Otter on a weekly basis and if you ever have you know how loud that can be. These cancel out a significant portion of cabin noise, and now my iPad/iPhone's volume is set to half instead of max. When not flying I use them daily, and haven't had any issues with the cables, etc. Defo worth the purchase price.
