Bose convert – please stand up. I was never into headphones, then i got the bose on-ear experience on a business class flight – lucky me. So then i had to get these ones.Not only a truly fantastic audio experience, but they are seriously comfortable on the ears. Like ‘they are keeping my ears nice and warm’ comfy and don’t want to take them off even though i’m not listening to anything. Sure, you lose a little sound but this is a small downside to the on-ear experience. The only thing i was slightly disappointed with (and this is my own fault, i guess) is that i just saw the photo and thought these ‘mint’ headphones were a light blue – that’s how it looks to me. On receiving them, they look more. You guessed it, mint coloured.
I got the white ones with the blue cable. The design is very modern and they are extremely comfortable to wear as they are light. I dithered over getting the qc15 ones with noise cancelling but decided not to pay the extra £120. Haven’t tested on a plane yet but did wear while moving the lawn and could hear the music fine.

Bose products are generally of a good quality in respect of both sound and build quality. Bose products are generally of a good quality in respect of both sound and build quality and the soundtrue headphones are no exception. However compared to the competition these are pretty average. The audio-technica ath-m50x not only sound better but they are also cheaper and better built. However the bose are lighter and more comfortable. I still think the bose should be on any headphone shortlist. Just review them before you buy.
Well built, nice and strong. Was expecting better sound from bose?.
I’ve tried these out on an mp4 player,a portable dab radio and a laptop. The sound has been consistently good on all of them. They’re very light and comfortable to wear,even for long-ish periods of time,and because of the design and materials of the ear pieces they don’t get too hot either. I found that there was more than enough adjustment and that it was very quick and easy to change how they fit on my head. The only slight downside for me was that the on-line volume control didn’t work with any of the devices i tried it with,although it does mention that some functions may not work with older iphones/ipads and non-apple products. Oh,and they look good too,so overall although they’re quite expensive they’re well worth buying.
Bose ® SoundTrue Around-Ear Headphones – Black/Mint : 1st song i played was pearl jam’s pendulum live in pittsburgh from their tour last year and the difference in sound took me back with how good it was and how much more depth there is to the music on my ipod. I am looking forward to going on my holidays next month so i can appreciate the sound of some films i have downloaded to my ipad.
