Summary: I use my headphones constantly so the cushions wore out quickly. The replacement pads are invaluable, bearing in mind the initial outlay for what are, admittedly, fabulous headphones but one keeps coming free from the casing. Not a major problem but not ideal. BOSE should consider doing something about replacement headbands.
Summary: Having increasingly purchased Bose equipment and been very happy over the last few years with the Bose over ear headphones, it was only natural to order the genuine Bose replacement Ear Cushion Kit.
Summary: These replacement headphone covers are good quality but I did not expect the originals to wear out so repidly, if at all. High price to pay to replace items that should not need replacing so soon if Bose lived up to their reputaion for quality. Also these are priced higher than their other replacement sets. So a rip off. Also, they are half the price in the US but Bose won't ship to the UK.
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.

Good sound shame about the construction and support

Excerpt: I have had a pair of QC2 headphones for about 3 years and have used them extensively on flights in that time. Even though I have treated them very gently, on the last trip the headband broke and they are 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".
Excerpt: I am devastated! My partner bought me a pair for Christmas in 2005 (and an excellent free Bose CD player was part of the deal). I'd first discovered the brilliant sound cancelling effect when I tried my colleague's set in the Business Club lounge in San Francisco airport - a quiet room went almost completely silent when I flicked the switch. I was seriously impressed!
Excerpt: These bose quietcomfort two headphones sound and feel amazing, but cost alot. I recently tested a set of these headphones, and even though I may not have heard more than 30 different types of headphones, I can say that these are by far the best headphones that I have ever heard. The sound quality is absolutely stunning and they really enhance the listening experience, the bass is especially good. These headphones are also very comfortable and are not to heavy.
