Bose - QuietComfort 2 Consumer Headphones are great

  • Excerpt: i really like the design for these headphones not to harsh on your years and thats what consumers are seeking comfort. Plus you can enjoy your hobbies such as listening to an audiobook or watching a movie while traveling. I personally like the headphones that can block out other sounds that are harsh and irratating. I would reccomend this product to all who want to enjoy simple things while being on the road or camping.

Good but needs careful handling.

  • Excerpt: This was a gift for my husband who is a discerning user. Brand name to him equates with quality for him. It worked very well but cannot be used casually. It needs to be put away EVERY time after use and not tossed on the sofa or table. The earpiece came off the rest of the headphones and could not be put back even after a visit to the Bose store. For the price paid for it, $150+ , that was disappointing.

Decent Pair of Tone Phones

  • Excerpt: The bass in these bad boys seem to be top notch yet it is sometimes hard to hear other instruments due to this, I only use these for music so I couldn't relate them to other purposes such as gaming. These would be good for recording studio beat sets in my opinion and that is about it.

No Volume Control. . . Fragile too. . .Expensive

  • Excerpt: *I bought mine about 2 years ago. It was very impressive when i first had it. Very cool. I didn't hear any noise from outside.  Though it has few downside. It doesn't have volume control itself. I have to adjust the volume from the mp3 player or laptop or whatever device that i can connect this headphones to. * Another thing, it is fragile. The cushion already came off for some reason.

  • 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.

  • 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)

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
10 June 2013
  • 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.
