Reviews and Problems with Bose QuietComfort 2 headphones
Showing 1-6 of 6
Good quality at first, but far too fragile.

Excerpt: I received these headphones for christmas in december 2008. I was impressed with the quality - at first. However, after about a month a persistent static developed in the headphones. I was able to ignore this for the most part as it was not usually audible with most music / videos. Unfortunately, the cord recently developed what I assume is a bad connection and will have to be sent in for repair, after only half a year of usage.
Excerpt: These headphones are great, but not for the price. I really think that you pay for the name when you buy bose products. I think that you can get the same quality headphones for around fourty to fifty dollars. These things are great if you are willing to pay the price, but when you can get the same quality for much less I think you have to go with the cheaper headphones. I know with this this economy there is not need for three hundred or more dollar headphones from bose.
Good sound shame about the construction and support

Excerpt: "...now unuseable. I called Bose to be told "we don't fix them, we won't sell you the part, but you can part exchange them for new ones for £150". I was also told that even if they were within the warranty period they would treat this particular problem as accidental damage and wouldn't cover it anyway! I would concur with all the reviews of sound quality and comfort, but that is of no value if for the sake of a 10p bit of plastic if you can't use them. ...
Summary: Tenho ele há um mês e já quebrou na haste perto do fone. Não tem conserto aqui no Brasil, tive que improvisar, diversas pessoas no exterior relatam este mesmo problema, é só colocar no google - "bose broke". Seu sistema de isolamento é bom, mas não bloqueia os ruídos de ônibus e metrô, ele barra uma frequência continua similar ao da turbina de avião, mas não barra as vozes de pessoas perto, ou o trânsito infernal de nossas cidades, moro no Rio.
