IF YOU HAVE BOSE HEADPHONES
If you have Bose headphones you'll know that although they're not cheap they are one of the best headphones around. These are the latest (Sept 2014) to be added to the Bose line-up. I've tried these at home, office, train and most recently on a plane.
Out of the box they were fantastic. Deep resilient bass, and the overall sound full of texture. After about 80 hours of using them the sound appeared better.
They truly are the best sounding headphones I've been lucky to use.
I have larger than average ears. So I had thought that these may be uncomfortable after a few hours of using. However, they're really comfortablle to wear. And they keep on feeling comfortable after a while. They are so light that you can forget that you're wearing them. I'd had a go of Beats
headphones which were really good. The bose headphones feel even better.
If you have exceptionally small ears (the sign of being odd) then these may not be for you. But for those normal types with normal ears, and larger cool ears, they are perfect.
Even a little chattering on the bus was easily blocked out. They seem to hear the external noise and adjust to fit. They were remarkably good on the plane. I managed to sleep with their help. I tried them in much quieter environment and they were simply lovely.
In everyday situations they create a quietness that's unbeatable. I'm not sure if Bose invented the noise cancelling thing, but they are now the best 'noise cancelling' headphones about. And I've tried a few!
They are very light and come with a little compact case.
I've not had them that long so I'll update the review if they deteriorate. If you have any queries I'll do my best to answer in the comments below.
Smart, well made, light and superb sound. If you want one of the best headphones these are strong contenders.
