Bose AE2 Around-ear Audio Headphones with Carry Bag - 564633
Comfort & Quality
Fabulous earphones. Far more comfortable than I thought and more so than the cheap brand I purchased from another store. Well worth the investment. Great little pouch to store them in too. Over all great sound quality, comfortable and outstanding value.
I can't say a bad thing about them.

Good headphones - But not the best
I purchased these headphones for my husband for a present, and also to replace his old pair of high spec, but somewhat battered, headphones.
Since my husband is a serious audiofile I thought these would be the bee's knees and he'd be a happy bunny.
Unfortunately these headphones don't live up to my husbands high expectations. There are several good points but several bad ones too.
Easy to store
Decent range (lows to highs) and fairly good middle
Severe noise leakage when being used at reasonable sound volumes (very little in the way of sound insulation)
Build quality is good - Not great
Very thin audio cable that is way too long (it gets in the way constantly) and can be easily damaged
Not enough Bass (an inline amplifier has to be used to get a good but not brilliant sound)
My husband has gone back to using his old headphones, but as he says "these should come in for a spare pair if anything goes wrong with the ones I already have"
These are a good first pair of headphones for almost anyone, but if you're into using professional headphones like my husband then these are not as good.

Amazing sound quality, light weight and comfy
I have the BOSE QC15 noise cancelling headphones which are superb, so I knew the quality of these would be equally as good (being BOSE).
So I bought these for my husband who wanted a regular pair of headphones, not the noise cancelling type. I also bought the BOSE 5m extension lead so he could use them for the TV,
When I tried these myself, I was amazed by how much they cut out ambient noise too. The ear pads are light as a feather and so soft. you hardly know you're wearing them.
The superb sound quality is exactly the same as the noise cancelling ones, so dont be put off by the price..
