Bose OE2i headphones review

 

Here's something you don't see every day: a pair of white Bose headphones. Yes, it's the company's second-generation on-ear headphones, the OE2 ($149.95) and OE2i ($179.95), each offered in black or white.

The Bose OE2i Headphones are more compact than the original OE ("on-ear") headphones. They're lightweight, very comfortable, and feature a fold-up design with an included carrying case, a detachable headphone cord, and an inline remote and microphone...

The fidelity comes up short on bass resonance.

You can debate the price, but the iPhone-friendly Bose OE2is are very comfortable everyday-use headphones with a compact frame and balanced, detailed sound.

Goondu review: Bose OE2i headphones

 

Like all Bose gear, the OE2i is not cheap. But if you like a compact pair of headphones with offers above average audio, they are worth checking out.

Bose OE2i

 

The Bose OE2i features built-in iPhone controls and laudable audio performance, but in this price range, there are more impressive options.

Solid overall audio performance with strong bass response. Comfortable fit. Collapses and folds flat into carrying pouch.

Open design means people nearby can hear your music. Deep bass at high volumes can rattle earcup enclosure.

Bose OE2i audio headphones

 

Wearing the OE2i headphones from Bose for extended periods of time is as natural as breathing. It's almost like the cushions are made out of unicorn hair and fluffy white clouds they are so comfortable. How else could you explain it?

Exceptional comfort; impressive audio quality

Excessively long cable

At $249, the Bose OE2i is a bargain for what is largely considered a premium brand, offering impressive sound quality, exceptional comfort and a convenient form factor. They’re well worth the asking price, even if the cable is designed for giants and...

Bose OE2

 

Great sound quality, comfy and light, easy to pack into the carry case to store safely while on the move.

Sound does leak, and at quite low volume, have to be conscious in public environments unless you want to annoy everyone around you!
