Stax SR-001 Mk II and Bose Quietcomfort 2 Headphones

AVguide
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

PC Magazine
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 Review

Digitaltrends
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

Bose Quiet Comfort 2

  • Excerpt: (1 items) Although Bose has become a sort of status brand to some shoppers, many find Bose products to be expensive compared to products of similar quality from other manufacturers. In the case of the Bose Quiet Comfort 2, we have to agree. Although the QC2 offer good sound and very good noise cancelation, they also cost more than twice as much as the excellent Sennheiser PXC 250. We actually prefer the sound of the PXC 250 to the QC2.

  • Excerpt: I am a bit of a headphone aficionado and collect for fun. As every pair of headphones has different EQing and structural qualities that shape the timbre of the sound, it is fun for me to listen to as many different kinds as I can. As with most of the headphones I own, I received a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 2's used from a friend who had recentl...
