  • Summary: No one here needs to be told what these are - opinions of Bose are rather skewed one way or the other. Suffice to say that these are extremely popular headphones squarely aimed at the frequent airline traveler. Why do I have these 'phones? I travel to Europe frequently for business and wanted something to ease the pain. I tried in-canal headphones, but those gave me a royal headache.

  • Summary: As a frequent traveler, these headphones served their purpose. The noise cancellation is some of the best you'll find, but the audio quality suffers greatly as a consequence. They withstood about 2 years of very heavy use, before the earpads and drivers both completely gave out. That said, there are few headphones that serve heavy travel purposes as well as these, but for the price point, it loses major points with me.
  • Pros: decent noise cancellation
  • Cons: middling to low quality audio, you can get miles better fidelity for the same price (see HiFiMan HE-300/Denon AH-D2000)

  • Summary: I compared these headphones with two other closed circumaural choices: the HFI-700s and AKG271Ss, testing with a variety of rock and pop selections. Files from a G5 are fed via toslink to a Bel Canto DAC2 and onto a Meier Corda Prehead. The Bose QuietComfort 2s are a funny beast -- they have a large, slamming-bass sonic singnature that, from what I can figure, does not much care about accuracy.

Perfect fit. Ludicrously expensive.

  • Summary: I use the QC2's at work every day. They get a lot of use, and the earpads wear out in about 2 years. There's no choice butfor me to buy the genuine replacements IMHO, given the reviews of the non-Bose replacements on the interweb. I just wish they weren't such a rip off. There's no competition on price, the only other source being Bose, who charge pretty much the same price. These can't cost more than a couple of pounds to make, surely?

Bose ear cushions

Todd Sweeney, Amazon

  • Summary: Theres nothing wrong with these ear cushions, except the price. Although I have had the earphones for a couple of years now, I haven't used them regularly. They cost a lot and I didn't expect to have to replace the cushions, both for the ears and across the top (which I can't actually change). So my disappointment is more with Bose than with these ear cushions.
