Phenomenal sounding headphones that are extraordinarily light and comfortable, with only a few minor issues with the extras.
on 25 November 2014
A very good pair of headphones with just a few very minor issues with the case and wire. I won't comment on the sound quality much apart from saying it is excellent. Bose has a reputation for high end sound and it has proven once again it can deliver phenomenal sound with excellent design. They are very light and "extremely" comfortable to wear, even with glasses. However there are a few issues that keep me from giving this product a five star rating. First issue would be the case. While the case itself is very nice and has a good premium feel to it, I can't help but feeling that putting the headphones in feels awkward. You have to adjust them and shuffle it a fair bit around to fit it properly, but again not a big issue. Secondly, I feel as though the the connecting cable is just a bit too delicate. I am used to fairly thick and robust cables for my headphones, so it might just be my personal qualm with it, but it is on the thinner side and I always feel as though any excessive manhandling will break it. (don't plan to test it out!) I would have preferred a more durable cable. The cable is also quite long, easily dragging across my feed (5'10" here). While not a big issue for me, it might be a dealbreaker for others.
