Summary: Bought these QC 2's about 3 years ago. Sound reproduction the best that you can buy for around £250. However after 3 years the ear pads just disintegrated and you will only get replacements from Bose UK at a cost of £32.95!
Good Sound but noise cancelling not what I expected

Summary: I am no expert on sound quality but these are the best quality i have heard from a headphone. Would recommend these particularly if you listen to quite a lot of piano music. They dont have the resonance you get with some lower quality headphones when certain piano notes are played.
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.
Summary: OVERALL A VERY GOOD TRANSACTION, SLIGHTLY DISAPPOINTED BY QUALITY OF HEADPHONES AT HIGHER VOLUME, SOME DISTORTION. I THOUGHT THESE WERE THE ROLLS ROYCE OF HEADPHONES, NOT THE CASE - THEY ARE GOOD BUT NOT EXCELLENT.
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...

Excerpt: I was quite skeptical when looking to buy these, because I didn't believe the quality could possibly be good enough to justify the huge price tag. I was extemely wrong!!! These are the best headphones I have ever owned.
Excerpt: These fantastic headphones can be bought from the bose shop on regent street opposite Hamleys. An alternative is to buy from Bose direct but i suggest that you go to the shop and try it out yourself to see how brilliant it is. Buying from bose means that you get a 30 day money back gaurantee.
Pros: BRILLIANT HEADPHONES WHICH BLOCK OUT ALL SOUNDS ! !
