    Der Bose wurde wie versprochen pünktlich geliefert, voller Erwartung ausgepackt und geladen, und dann kam die große Enttäuschung. Der Klang dieses Kopfhörers ist unterirdisch schlecht. Als Referenzaufnahmen dienen in erster Linie von Chris Botti das Album “Live in Boston” sowie von Lang Lang das Album “New York Rhapsody”, alles von Qobuz in Hi-Res gestreamt. Die Soloinstrumente verschwimmen im Einheitsbrei des Orchesters, die Stimmen klangen wie bei einer Erkältung. Insgesamt viel zu wenig Auflösung der Instrumente, keine Dynamik und kein Druck. Schade eigentlich, wo Bose doch eigentlich für guten Sound steht.

    These headphones sound terrific…when they operate. Unfortunately they have problems connecting to my laptop or PC. Even when using a bluetooth adapter, they are still touch and go. It would seem to have no problem “pairing” with either the laptop or PC..but to connect and play is a different story. Sometimes they work…and other times they do not. Would not recommend.
    I initially submitted this review January 23 however on January 26 I was contacted by a rep at Amazon asking me to remove the review after which they would compensate me with a gift card within 224 hours of removal. I removed the review as asked but Amazon reneged on the gift card….I am therefore re-posting the review.

    Bought these for myself for a Christmas present from my wife. Really looking forward to them too! The build quality was really good and they are amazingly comfy to wear with many adjustments. There was a faint constant noise interference in the right earpiece so I returned them. I would have ordered a replacement pair but after researching the issue I found it to be quite popular with the headset with some people seeing the issue on day 1 and other people noticing it later down the line which has completed put me off and I expect better from a company like Bose so I thought I would leave this review to share the awareness of the problem.

    I’ve had mixed luck with wireless headphones – I had a VERY disappointing pair of Mpow Bluetooth earbuds that sounded muddy and buzzy and then tried the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless which were AMAZING – and almost $500!!

    These are a great middle ground. They come with a nice carrying case that will protect them in your backpack and a few cables and wires to make sure you can connect.

    The build quality is great for plastic headphones – they feel solid and there are no loose pieces or rattles. The headphones are fully adjustable and fit everyone in our family from the little guys to the grown ups. The headphones don’t have noise cancelling but the fit is so good that background noise is cut substantially.

    The controls are convenient and intuitive – a toggle on the right earpiece for volume with a pause/play in the middle. I had no trouble adjusting on the fly the first time I wore them.

    Sound quality is very good – I tried my Beethoven violin concerto that has some very quiet parts in the middle of some loud ones and the dynamic range of the headphones is impressive. Highs are clear and bright without sounding tinny and the lows are full and impactful with none of the muddiness some headphones give. Playing Fever Ray or Tycho really shows the headphones are great for edm and alternative – I really enjoyed how balanced the sounds were.

    I’ve worn them for upto three hours straight and had no discomfort or fatigue – they fit well without crushing like some of the Beats models. One thing I didn’t care for is the earpieces don’t breathe that well which made them get very sweaty when I was on the treadmill.

    I have no hesitation recommending these at this price point – I feel you’d have to spend a lot more to get a better pair.

    Pros:
    – great sound
    – great battery life and fast charging
    – looks good
    – great fit

    Cons:
    – earpieces don’t breathe well and can get sweaty if you wear them working out
    – can take up to a minute to connect when turning on

    Falls du das hier liest, sei dir bewusst, dass die meisten keine Ahnung haben. Der Sound ist schrecklich, zumindest über Bluetooth. Da gibt es auch kein “es ist geschmackssache”. Die Höhen sind zu viel und das ist Fakt. Über das Kabel ist der Sound OK. Aber 180€ für einen Sound der OK ist? Also für Electro bis zu HipHop sind es zu wenig Tiefen und für Classics und Charts sind es zu viele Höhen.

    Bought these for $258.77 CAD just before black Friday. After a few days of usage this is my review

    The clarity of music over Bluetooth really impressed me. Listening to multiple genres using FLAC, AAC, Mp3 file format I found the highs to be clear no hurtful hissing or distortion was present, the mids are perfect and lows are handled well.

    At medium volume external noises are present but muffled. At close to max and max volume external noises are almost completely blocked out.

    A delay is present when using the pause/skip button on the headset itself. Using the volume up & down buttons will not control your phone’s volume, they control the headphones volume

    Being connected to 2 devices and switching between the audio from both devices was no problem. Call quality is clear on both ends.

    Battery life is good. I charge every 2-4 days.

    The headset feels great on my head, Not heavy and the pressure is minimal but they stay snug on my head ( with and without my glasses on)

    The wire that ships with the headset is thinner than how I would like it to be but since audio over Bluetooth is so good using the wire isn’t necessary. The protective case zipper is too close to the outer part of the right earcup

    I’ve owned these for two years and have used them for an average of 8hrs a day everyday doing construction, they’ve been abused and they still keep on chugging. The foam on the ear pieces are starting to deteriorate but that’s to be expected after roughly 5,000hrs of use, buy with extreme confidence

    Kopfbügelbeschichtung löst sich an den Rändern auf. Bei einem zweiten weißen Kopfhörer ebenfalls, allerdings etwas weniger.

    I had high hopes for these headphones and I was not disappointed!

    FIT: They fit comfortably around my ears, and the band is easily adjustable to ensure a perfect fit whether I wear them with or without a beanie on. They also fit perfectly into the case that is provided (which has a handy pocket inside for the AUX cord and USB charging cord).
    SOUND: Very clear audio; bass is a touch heavier than I usually opt for (I would prefer the sub-bass to be increased a little instead) but the mids and treble are pretty. The snug ear cups block out most ambient noise, so I’m really glad I didn’t bother spending the extra $200 for noise-cancelling version!
    WIRELESS: No issues connecting via Bluetooth to my iPhone or my Mac — the headphones audibly tell you what they are synced to when you power them on, which is helpful.
    LOOK: The Bose look is pretty sleek and classic; these don’t demand as much attention as the brightly coloured Beats do, which is what I was going for. The matte finish is great, and they’re quite light so not cumbersome to carry around in your pack.

    Would definitely recommend these headphones!

    Look brilliant… sound brilliant… they fit lovely and have good features……but….after several months of use the headband started to crack and peel looking anything but stylish.. I was quickly on to Bose about this matter and to be fair to Bose they dealt with the matter imeadiately giving me a new replacement headset asap…I will put a couple of pictures on to show others what happened.
    I would have given these 5 stars if it wasn’t for the headband cracking but again a big thumbs up to Bose for acting fast and resolving the issue.
