About Bose

Dedication to research and excellence has been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. Ever since then, Bose engineers have focused on creating superior technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in the SoundTrue headphones.

About The Product

Your style deserves strong design

Designed for the way you live your life, Bose SoundTrue on-ear headphones are engineered to make your personal soundtrack even better, delivering deep, clear audio. Bose have made them so light and comfortable that you could even forget that you’re wearing them. However, they are solid and durable, built to survive modern life. They come in around-ear and on-ear styles in a variety of eye-catching designs, so that you can choose what works for you.

If music was art, your headphones would be your gallery.
Powerful sound, lightweight design

Bose SoundTrue on-ear headphones offer a design for clear, natural acoustic sound in every note—from sweet soprano vocalists right down to a resonant bass line groove. Lose yourself in the moment and let the big sound embrace you. The padded headband and memory foam ear cushions keep you comfortable for as long as you want to listen.

Convenient and strong

More than just style, Bose SoundTrue on-ear headphones have substance too, and are built to last. The cable attaches to only one earcup, giving you freedom to move and dance without getting tangled up. The cable can be detached, the earcups fold flat and the headband is collapsible for easy storage in the carry case that comes free with your purchase.

.
Bose has added a bit of colour to its range with the SoundTrue OE headphones. Available in four modern designs, they are set to rival the latest Beats by Dre headphones on the fashion front. The Bose SoundTrue range includes two rather similar models with slightly dissimilar designs. These are the on-ear variant, whereas the SoundTrue AEs are over-ear. The sound quality of the former seems better, and they are also smaller and lighter too.

You get the feature of three-button in-line remote and microphone, so you can make hands-free phone calls and change the volume of your music; however, they are only fully compatible with Apple devices, and to lesser degree certain android phones, which is rather disappointing.

They sound great across all types of music genres, from jazz to pop, but particularly excel when listening to classical tracks. The spoken-word comes over as rather crisp and clear, so these headphones are excellent for listening to audio books and similar.

These are excellent headphones. I have used Bose QC1 and then QC2 headphones for more years than I can remember now and have loved them. However, there is a lot of competition now from other brands in this range, and I wondered whether Bose might be relying on their reputation because these are quite expensive for compact on-ear 'phones. I was wrong - these are worth every penny. They are neat, light, compact and comfortable, and most importantly of all, have excellent sound.

The sound is the most important thing, so to begin with that: it is excellent. I am genuinely surprised that such small, light on-ear 'phones can produce such a full, rounded sound. It is excellently balanced with very bright treble, rich middles and a very solid bass, which really resonates when necessary. What I found striking was the sheer precision and clarity of what I was hearing, which was exceptional. I have a Test Playlist for audio equipment which starts with Tudor choral music, ends with London Grammar and covers most things in between. Everything sounds excellent; the bass response gives a theorbo and viola da gamba a real, resonant depth, string quartets are perfectly balanced, I'd say, rock sounds great and that sub-bass resonance in the second half of London Grammar's Hey Now really rolls around your head. I find them a joy to listen to.

I have worn these for several hours at a stretch and they're extremely comfortable. They may not grip hard enough for running, say, but they're fine for everyday use. They are very nicely packaged with an attractive storage pouch, they look stylish and the cord gives no friction noise whatever.

I've long been a fan of headphones for listening to audio, wherever practical, and in general, the larger the better. I was initially looking for some of the older version Bose Quiet Comfort headphones, but struggled to find any 'new, old stock' of these. Not wanting to spend £250 on the current ones (and I preferred the looks of the older versions), I made a logical compromise. The Noise cancelling would have only been of benefit in a few occasions that I would encounter, so these around the ear headphones will be a good choice.

In use, they are very light on the head, no uncomfortable pressure anywhere. The sound is not as bass heavy as some headphones I have used in the past, and this gives more clarity to many types of music and DVD soundtracks (I will be using them extensively for film watching on a PC/ Laptop). The cable is quite thin, which also means it's light, and doesn't 'drag' across you body, when moving your head. The cable is also removable from the left earcup for storage, and in case of mishap, it can be replaced.

The inline control works fine on my iPod Nano, but when used on my Blackberry, only the volume buttons have any effect.

The ear cushions seem a slightly better quality of fake leather than many I have used previously, but I assume that these will one day rot and crumble (my main reason for replacing headphones, over the years). Spare ear cushion sets are available from Bose retailers.

I would recommend these to others, based on both comfort and sound. The attention to detail in design and build is also reassuring, there is no creaking of plastic when handling them.

Style Name: On-EarColour Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Short Attention Span summary : light, comfortable, high quality sound. On-ear design means mediocre noise isolation.

The Bose Soundtrue On-Ear Headphones come in a small and very light box, a sign of one the best plus-points for this model : comfort. They don't strike me as being long-term-durable but only time will tell; in fairness it must be impossible to create a very light pair of headphones that can also stand up to the rigours of accidents and general everyday use but like most people, I guess, I would choose lightness and comfort as a greater priority.

I'm fortunate enough to have two other pairs of headphones with which the Bose SoundTrue can be usefully compared - the similarly priced Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear, and the Klipsch Image One (Mark 1). Accordingly I have spent some time listening to a variety of music and doing A/B/C comparisons. I should add that the Klipsch Image One (Mark 1) used to carry a similar price tag to the Bose and Sennheiser but since the introduction of the Mark 2, the price has plummeted - but they more than stand their ground against the other two. In short, these are three similar quality headphones that are hard to tell apart.

But there is a pecking order. It's a fine line, but it's there.

In the end, it's the company that specialises in headphones - Sennheiser - that takes the honours here, but the Bose SoundTrue is a very close second, and it's better in sound isolation and comfort.

I started things off with Imelda May's Pulling the Rug from her album Mayhem. First impressions with the Bose 'phones was a very slightly back-from-front soundstage, as if the singer's voice was almost playing second fiddle to the many musical intruments being played.
