🆒 You can wear these with the volume turned way up, without the sound bothering people around you. As in: they can be sitting next to you and they won't be disturbed (for example, if they are studying or sleeping).
⭐️ They are incredibly comfortable to wear; can easily have them on for hours on end without feeling it.
💷 Are they worth £149? Well put it this way - if you're on a very strict budget, then no. IMHO, they'd be perfect at £90. But who am I to decide these things?
👓 Some perhaps disparagingly, call Bose headphones, "Fashion Headphones". I think the black ones are a bit bland. (But it also means it attracts less attention, and are hopefully less likely to be stolen)
👕 I think they're nice as a "wearable", almost an item of clothing. Their weight and comfort really matters.
* The sound is very good, but it's not as amazing as some by other perhaps more niche, brands.
✅ You can use in noisy environments - and block out a good deal of the "real world"
⬆️ They go very, very loud.
I like how they fold completely flat.
-Clear and crisp sound
-Lightweight and portable
-Clean and subtle aesthetics
-Slight lack of bass
As a 16 year old, I use these headphones for hours every day at school and home. I was unimpressed by the sound quality and distasteful appearance of the Beats by Dre that my friends were using, and so was incredibly satisfied after getting a pair of Ae2 for Christmas. They are quite expensive (Bose generally are) but when compared to the Beats, I think the Bose SoundTrue headphones are actually brilliant value. As for other headphones of a similar quality, maybe not so much, but I have little experience of the such. I have used the same pair for 2 years (previous earphones/headphones were lucky to see 6 months) with a replacement of the cable after it was chewed by an excited puppy, and replacement cushions due to wear and tear. So far, neither the strong plastic casing or headband have succumbed to the stresses of being thrown around in a bag for most of the day at school. The light, low profile cans and soft padding mean that the headphones are very comfortable even during extended periods of use, especially when laying against a pillow.
I can't comment in much detail on the specific characteristics of the sound quality and signature due to a lack of experience with other headphones. What I can say, is that music seems very clear and crisp, though sometimes lacks bass. For the most part, I listen to classic rock, jazz, blues, and old hip-hop.Read more ›
