Excerpt: I used to have in-ear headphones but after a while they started to feel uncomfortable. Looking for another set I was browsing in Target store where I gave Bose 41213 a try. I was pretty impressed by the quality of the sound and found the price a good match to the quality. The only drawback is the somewhat cheap plastic.
Excerpt: We use this on the computer to watch shows. We can sit in front of the computer for hours with this headphone. It provides soft pillows of comfort for your ears and keeps outside noise out. We have had ours for many years now, without any problems. The entire family uses it, so it's worth the price you pay for it. A great pair of headphones that I'm sure we'll enjoy for years to come.

Outstanding Bose quality, and great customer service

Excerpt: These are my favorite headphones out of four well-loved pairs, and nothing can compare to their comfort and their quality of sound. The base is full, the treble is sharp, and nothing starts to rival them until well in to the $400 range of studio monitors. I recently damaged my pair that happened to be three years old (well out of warranty) and called Bose right away.
Excerpt: The Bose around ear headphones are extremely comfortable. I use these to watch tv shows on my phone, and sometimes forget I even have them on. The sound with them is excellent. They fit my head great, and the ear part is cushioned for extra comfort. They are ok for extended wear, listening to music, or using it to listen to the television. It is great if you are trying not to interupt someone nearby with the sound of the television.
Bose - Around-ear Headphones are great starter headphones.

Excerpt: I loved these headphones until I got the QuietComfort 15s. These were my first Bose headphones and both the sound and comfort level are amazing. However, these aren't noise canceling, so you can hear most sound going on around you. The other positive is that they do not require batteries and therefore, do not stop working when the batteries die.
Excerpt: My husband got these headphones a year ago - while I decided to get a pair of Sony's. Both were similarly priced (mine were a tad cheaper) - and boy, I wish I had gotten the Bose. First things first, they are extremely comfortable around the ears - something most headphones are not. They have a great material that's soft and feels nice. Being that I use them on the laptop and often with my Zune/ iPod, the wire is a tad bit too long.
Excerpt: Bose is one of the industry leaders for good headphones, and they are so worth the extra money. But the things that you buy have to be worth it you on a daily basis, and these are just a little more than I wanted to invest. The sound on these headphones is so clear and crisp, especially for someone who's grown up using the cheapie headphones and earbuds. These Bose phones definitely blow the competition out of the water!
Excerpt: These Bose around-ear headphones are a great value for those people looking to upgrade from the headphones that come with most mp3 players. The fit is very comfortable with padded cups and band to provide cushioning so that you don't feel too much pressure while wearing them on trips. Speaking of padded cups, they fit nicely over the ear to block out some outside noise.
Excerpt: These Bose headphones are great for listening to your iPod. Their TriPort acoustic headphone structure allows for a much richer sound in general. I have been a fan of headphones versus earbuds for years now and these headphones are an excellent example of why I do. Not only are earbuds uncomfortable, they are inferior in sound quality. The TriPort ear cushions keep the sound to yourself and your ears will thank you for them.
Excerpt: I received these from a friend and love these! They are my first pair of Bose headphones. THe sound quality is great and I love the noise cancelling feature. Of course, you can still hear some noise from outside the headphones, but it's pretty hard to hear that unless they're talking extremely loud. I love the bass too from the headphones. And if you listen to loud music, people can't hear it from outside, which I love.
