Bose ® SoundTrue Around-Ear Headphones – : Very light and comfortable

Portable Headphones

I don’t habitually listen to anything other than through decent speakers, but there are times when something less public is needed, so i wanted to get some headphones. I already have other bose equipment, so these headphones were on my list to try. As with all bose products, the packaging is great, very reminiscent of apple quality. The headphones, white with a blue cable, are clearly a quality built product. They fit comfortably over the ears and, for me at least, cut out all sound externally when music is playing. As with all music, it is the classical that has the greatest and most challenging sounds to reproduce. The sounds heard are reminiscent of very high quality floor speakers on classical pieces that are most recently recorded. Older classical music that has been transcribed is still very good, but the clarity of full digital is outstanding. This is all echoed in non-classical repertoire, from aerosmith to brad paisley, by way of abba.

Excellent headphones with only a few minor niggles. I really, really like these headphones. They’re my first bose product and, based on their reputation and retail price, i was expecting something fairly high-end and impressive. Overall these really deliver, with only a few minor niggles. The good========- sound quality: these headphones sit on the warm side of neutral to my ears. Bass is full, rich and smooth, but not excessive. It makes dance and rock music sound good, but doesn’t stand out too much for other quieter styles. Treble is crisp but not at all harsh or tinny. The overall sound is really laid back, smooth and pleasant, well suited to a wide range of music. – noise isolation: the around-ear design blocks out an impressive amount of background noise, making them ideal for zoning out at work or drowning out traffic noise when out for a walk.

The sound quality is good, i loved the design, but i had to return these headphones because even after just 10 minutes spent wearing them, my ears were getting hot and painful. I thought that model around ear would fit me better and would reduce the noise spreading from them.

Comments from buyers

“Bose products are generally of a good quality in respect of both sound and build quality , Comfortable and hassle-free, Great light headphones”

I’ll lay my cards on the table from the word go, i love music, i run a music website and i collect headphones. I have headphones from sms, sennheiser (numerous pairs), beats, bose (ae2), jabra, and sony. I take my music listening very seriously. As always with new headphones i have let these burn in properly before reviewing them and fortunately i am able to listen to music at work to get the required amount of hours through these in a relatively short space of time. These are a diminutive set of headphones and fold up very small and neatly into a white faux leather case. These are probably the most compact headphones i have yet and would be ideal for commuting or travel for this reason. These is a detachable cable which also includes an in-line volume adjustor and buttons to skip tracks. I am not a huge fan of in-line controls as these are often the weak point of a cable, but this seems moulded well and sets relatively high up on the cable so there is less chance of catching it on clothing or bags. These are on-ear design (rather than round ear) and whilst there is more risk of sound leakage, this wasn’t discernable, even at higher volumes.

. Been using them daily, they are ace.

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.

Worked well for a while but as soon as warranty was up, the ear piece stopped working and the repairs are too costly. Disappointed at what is a usually great brand to buy from.

Comfortable and hassle-free. One very happy husband, thank-you. It might sound lower-tech than the noise-cancelling or wireless varieties, but there’s no hassle with charging anything. A friend of mine has the noise cancelling variety, but that feature wasn’t working when she lent them to me to try out because she hadn’t charged the battery. (even though they were not wireless, the noise cancelling feature still had to be charged. ) these are hassle free, as long as you’re close enough to your phone/laptop/whatever to plug them in.

As previous reviewers mentioned these are not for audiophiles they are amazingly light, the most comfortable headphones i’ve ever worn and they sound great. It’s a shame bose decided to discontinue these but if you can get them they’re worth it if a little expensive.

Creative HS-930i2 Premium Noise-isolating in-ear Headset : Comfortable and clear

Initially items 1st and aesthetically this is a definitely intelligent seeking bit of package, with a good velvet-appear carry bag.

This established blows …

Sony MDR-XB500 Extra Bass Headphones – : An honest review.

It claims extra bass and thats what you get. I prefered this xb500 more than the sucessor xb600. As decribed, these headphones present a bass weighty response. That remaining said, the sound good quality is great for the cost, and the significant cusions give quite great noise isolation, provided there …
