Summary: These are my second pair of Bose noise canceling headphones. The phones work as advertised in terms of noise canceling and reproduce sound better than ear buds. The problem though is the material Bose continues to use for the ear pads and the head cushion deteriorate after a very short time.
Pros: good noise canceling and good sound reproduction
Original item, but cheaply made and a rip off overpriced product
15 March 2015
Summary: Although this is an original Bose item, it is cheaply made and a complete 'rip off'. The edges of the VERY thin leather are simply glued together hence why they fail. When much cheaper brands such as JVC are better made and last years, and are a fraction of the price (£10 for a complete headphone),...
Summary: When I bought these I liked them; the sound quality was great and the noise cancelling works well. Two weeks later, they fell apart. Like my previous Bose MIE2 earbuds, the connector cable on the earpiece came out without any effort. Cheap, thin plastic without any real protection.
Be careful - misleading photo/ poor BOSE information

I love the "real" product but the item I was sent seems to be counterfeit as it did not contain the serial number.

Summary: I bought this as a gift as I have a pair these headphones myself. When I tried to register the product it appeared to have no serial number and when I called Bose themselves, they indicated that their products have serial numbers in 3 different places - in the earcup; on the warranty card and on the...
Summary: I should have known better but was attracted to the low price of these headphones. Amazon had sent me an email informing me of lower price so I was somewhat fooled and ordered straight away without checking previous reviews. It appears that this is not the first time fake headphones have been sold.
