These headphones are comfortable you can ware them for hours. 1. 5/5 for comfort.
When used with the audio cable with an IPAD the base was lacking and there was little to know surround and the music lacked presence. 2. 3.5/5 for headphones used with cable clear sound but lacking presence I.e. base and surround tho when used with Hifi(sound system) with 3D surround and a graphic equaliser this was mainly remedied.
When these headphones where paired in Wireless mode for 1 device in this case a IPAD the sound quality was outstanding crystal clear surround with high definition excellent base,mid range, high range(treble). Excellent with music and the button to turn sound up, pause and play,forward to next track,rewind track worked very well on the whole. These are controlled on the headphones and interact wirelessly with the IPAD. There was one problem as you moved about the sound did cut out then restart at times when stationery in one position very few problems. When pairing 2 devices at once a function only available so far on the Bose wireless headphones the sound volume, surround effect were at least 50% less than when paired and used with one device at a time and the mid,high,base sounds were very much reduced on the IPAD. When you switch off the Bluetooth on the second device a smart phone mine being a Samson Galaxy Ace the IPAD sound quality went back to the excellent levels and qualities of just using the 1 paired device with the Headphones. 3. Bluetooth (wireless mode for headphones) sound quality and features 4.5/5. Mainly let down by the sound levels of using 2 paired Bluetooth devices together and loss of sound when moving about which stopped it getting 5/5.
4. Overall I would probably give them 4.5/5 very good all round with excellent features and excellent sound when using one device in Bluetooth mode with the headphones in Wireless mode there main plus. When used with audio cable to connect headphones to headphone point of device very average. For the money I would say they are worth getting with there comfort, range of features including microphone so you don't need a hands free kit with your smart phone Mobil as long as it supports Bluetooth devices your fully in business with these headphones. Good customer support on the Bose web site and easy to understand video's explaining the features of the headphones,pairing of devices with headphones, full instruction manual can be viewed and downloaded. Make sure to register with them for your one year guarantee and to make sure what you have order on line isn't a counter fit product I was fine but can happen when ordering online.Bose ® AE2w Bluetooth ® Headphones
The wireless headphones don't come cheap tho at £199 new but they are a very good set of headphones and do compare in price with other makes like the Sennheiser MM500-X stero Bluetooth Headsets at £167.97 which have more reviews but are more mixed with the opions on these.Please feel free at comparing these two different headsets when buying a set of high quality Wireless(Bluetooth) headsets and what is said about noise cancelling headphones.
