Stax SR-001 Mk II and Bose Quietcomfort 2 Headphones

23 August 2008
  • Excerpt: If you ’ve ben around the audio hob y for awhile , you ’ll know that electrostatic transducers have a justified reputation for midrange and high -frequenc y purit y. While cruising over the north Atlantic in an Airbus A340, listening to Ivo Janssen’s excellent piano renditions of the Bach preludes and fugues, I’m trying to sort out whether Stax’s miniature SR-001 electrostatic headphones’ pure sound is enough to make them the answer—the ideal in-flight headphone during...

Bose QuietComfort 2

29 May 2006
  • Excerpt: You can't open an in-flight magazine without seeing an ad for the Bose QuietComfort 2 (QC2) headphones. They really do work, and nothing outperforms them for sheer noise reduction. These headphones listen to your environment and subtract what they hear from what you hear. They even block noise well without music: Turn them on while you're talking and you'll have the eerie experience of hearing the lowest octave of your own voice disappear.

Bose QuietComfort 2 Headphones Review

22 December 2005
  • Excerpt: First, they start out with a pair of high quality earcups. The earcups completely cover your ears insulating them from outside noise. They then use active noise canceling technology to eliminate background noise. The active noise reduction works by listening to the noise outside the headphones and then generating a sound that is exactly its opposite. This effectively cancels out the original sound leaving the listener with nothing but silence.

Bose QuietComfort 2 Review

24 January 2005
  • Conclusion: The most important factors when considering whether the Bose QuietComfort 2s are right for you are your lifestyle and usage. They make excellent travel headphones, and the noise canceling technology is startling when you take them off after wearing them for a while. However, in our audio reproduction quality tests, while subjective, we heard what many audiophiles complain about: somewhat flat and middle of the road performance.
  • Pros: Noise cancellation works as designed; good low frequency response
  • Cons: Mediocre audio reproduction; cannot turn off noise cancellation
