Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones


Bose has been surprisingly low-key about its first Bluetooth headphones, the AE2w. I'm not sure why that is, but the company didn't announce the AE2w headphones to the press when they were first launched and it hasn't been promoting them as much as its...

The Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones offer very good sound for Bluetooth, and they're arguably the most comfortable over-the-ear Bluetooth model. The control module is also well designed, with well-placed buttons that can be operated...

Pretty pricey; protruding Bluetooth module looks a little strange; volume may not be loud enough for some people, depending on device used and type of file played.

Despite a few question marks and a high price, the Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones are a very good-sounding Bluetooth pair that's lightweight and very comfortable to wear.

Had these 1 year plus. Best ever headphones. Sound quality second to none. Comfortable to wear. Easy to operate. I have just needed to put new cushions on these headphones, the old just pull off and the new click on, took about 5 minutes.

Great sound. But design is flawed!


Bought these in Gatwick Duty-Free. Sound is awesome. Great for travelling and so comfortable. The only issue I have is that the Rubber that surrounds the Headphones is starting to look like it's stretching/coming loose. Did not expect this on such a...

Great to start with then fall apart after - avoid


The sound quality and performance are what you'd expect from a Bose product excellent. Unfortunately poor design / construction means the rubber surrounds on the cans will delaminate around the year mark. This happened to 2 successive pairs - not good...

Poor quality


I bought this headphone couple of years back. I used it with utmost care and also kept it in the case. But gradually the head band cushion started peeling off. There is no replacement for headband. Only solution is to replace the whole headphone for...

Small Earprint, Big Sound


Had these for about a month and very happy. I was tired of big bulky earphone that were hot, uncomfortable, and made me look like a cyberman. Spent for these, my most expensive headphones, but trusted Bose. Amazing sound from a small comfortable...

Great headphones let down by poor durability


After a years use the headphones still work great and battery life good. However, the outer headband material is very thin, easy to damage and slowly peels away. Shame!

perfect headphones


My second pair of Bose headphones but my first pair of over ears in a long time and my first pair of bluetooth/wireless headphones. I was shocked on how comfy they are. I loved over ear headphones as they generally produce better quality sound but...

I have spent a while reading and listening to reviews of wireless headphones. My choice came down to Bose Soundlink 2 or Beats Studio Wireless 3. I tried out both pairs in store and it became a no brainer. Bose win hands down. I bought the white pair...
