Summary: I bought these in Aug 2007 and by Sept 2008 (Just after warranty period) they developed a rattle which progressively got worse. By Jan 2009 the ear pads started peeling, the head band started peeling. They now are terrible all tattered and rattly.
Summary: These headphones will impress neophyte users who have little previous experience with full-sized headphones that produce a bigger sound than is typical of the stock earbuds/headphones that are packaged with portable players.
Summary: Where to start? Hmm.. Worst sound I've heard in headphones above the 50 dollar price range. Bass impact is non-existent, there is no sign of mids at all, and then there's extremely grainy, shrill highs. Not the most musical cans at all. Build quality is even worse.
Summary: These were my first expensive headphones and when I got them I was actually pretty impressed. They sound pretty good and definitely a lot better then your average headphones that come with a cd/mp3 player. Now when you compare them with other headphones in the price range they are really no match.
Summary: I've been using a pair of Sony MDR-7506 headphones for the last decade and aside from the fact that the silk ear pad covering separates, they have been an excellent value. I tried a pair of the Bose TriPort headphones at a local electronics store and I really liked the comfort and sound quality --...
Summary: Let me start off by saying I have about 5 headphone/headsets because I rarely use speakers to keep the peace at home. Some sound great but are too heavy or hurt my head or do not block outside noises, etc. I finally decided to find a set of headphones that sound great and are a pleasure to wear.
Summary: I used the TriPorts before switching to the QC's and like others I snapped the arm on one side. Bose will fix or most likely, replace the headset free of charge. All you have to do is take them to any Bose store or mail them back and they'll take care of it. No time limit.
Summary: I agree with the previous reviewer. I owned this headset for over year, using very lightly, then SNAP the right ear speaker broke right off the arm. I have noticed with Bose products that the plastic parts are a problem and are of poor quality.
Summary: The sound is fine, and the headphones are light and easy to wear for long periods. They very effectively shut out room noise. The constructon is a bit shoddy, however. The left piece is periodically slipping off the headband - after less than one year of use.
Summary: I got these headphones about 6 months ago. I was really excited ... I was getting "BOSE" headphones. Well, they are really nothing special. Yes, they are light weight and comfortable (they get a 5 in these areas). But the audio quality is no better than my cheap set from Radio Shack.
