Cable

Cable:
"(Concededly, this ejection does protect the headphones from having the cord broken off)."

_
"I was waiting for a Bluetooth Headphone for a long time, to get rid of the cables, but I confess I was a little disappointed with this AE2w."

"The sound quality certain distorted a bit on the high and low freq and not able to deliver the level of the quality compared with the cord version."
_
"The good news is, it is a long enough cable that I was able to do just fine for an hour yesterday with no snags or hitting into the wire."
_
"The Pros and Cons starting with the ProsVery light weightGreat Blue Tooth distance from unit paired with, had no issues wearing them and going down to our kitchen, best guess would be 35 ft, no drop in signal nor any noise issues static interference,They fit snug, yet soft ear pads make them easy to wear for hoursPlug in cord when charging BlueTooth unit is included , sound quality increases with a wired connection."
_
"They definitely sound better than cheap earbuds but I can't tell the difference between these and my nice Sony or Philips headphones, with the bluetooth or the cord."

Charging

Charging:
"Amazon will only waranty for 30 days and the headphones were dead and unable to hold a charge at day 61."
_
"i think 7 hours of use time is not enough and if they can't extend battery life, they should consider charging while using.2) the other issue is that there is some glitches while changing devices, like switching from pc to iphone."
_
"The only reason I didn't vote 5 stars is that for the expensive price of $250 they come with a very cheap cloth case plus they dont come with a usb wall charger and they are awkward and can be quite uncomfortable when you put them around your neck."
_
"I suspect that that my Android phone charger would work to charge these, but I'm too scared to try it."
_
"My only disappointment is that these headphones don't come with a wall charger."
_
"The headphones are easy to charge, connect and operate."
_

"My ease or difficulty in connecting to computers, phones, etc have all been the fault of the computers, phones, that is, downloading the latest drivers and so on, but that's a one time deal."

Control

Control:
"The only issue-- and I do think Bose should have gone the extra mile here-- is that the audio cable they supply you with does not have an attached microphone or inline volume control so you won't be able to answer or adjust the volume on your phone using controls on the headset."
_
"Long battery life, built in microphone, controls you can use on the headset..... don't forget the excellent sound quality and comfort."
_
"I thought the dongle control device on the side would bother me, but it does not and the controls are very easy to use."
_
"If you go to the website mentioned in the enclosed directions and click 'Set-up and Use' then 'Remote Control' you will see a link to help you attempt to resolve this issue."

"Controls: easy to use, easy to locate without looking."
_
"The volume control buttons are easy to operate while wearing the headphones."

"Controls are easy to use.4."
_
"The sound is great and the volume control is the best I have had in any so far."
_
"Just bought this Bose ae2w bluetooth headphone due to mostly positive customers' review and it's truly worth the money for its clear and fantastic sound inspite it's low volume sound and no inline volume control on it's wire that comes with it, it's still a good buy for me for I can connect two of my cellphone and the connection process is very fast compare to my other bluetooth earphones."

Dongle

Dongle:
"Cons:Let's be honest, the bluetooth dongle looks a little weird."
_
"The only thing I'm missing is an extra dongle so I could stay wireless always."
_
"I was worried about the dongle on side but so small so no worry."
_
"Pros: - Very comfortable for long-term listening - Great Bose sound quality - Though not actively silencing, they mute much of the environment - Bluetooth connectivity is perfect for tangle-free enjoyment - Bluetooth dongle can be swapped with standard cord for use with devices without bluetooth - Folds flat for slim storageCons: - Carry case is merely a cloth sack"
_
"I tried several different bluetooth headphones including some top end Sony and Beats, but the Bose was just the most comfortable instantly and over long term - though its not the prettiest..Why I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of its looks (the dongle is pretty ugly - they should have built that in), the volume doesn't get as loud as other bluetooth models, and it does not block that much ambient noise (which is problematic in a airplane since it also doesn't get that loud)."
_
"I also love the fact that they 1. made the dongle (instead of a completely built in system) and 2. include a chord that you can utilize while the dongle is recharging."
_
"but after failing to connect to Windows and Macbook Air, I talked to customer service and they said you have to buy a third party dongle to be able to use it with laptops."
_
"Just disconnect the Bluetooth dongle and plug them in like you would normal headphones, and you'll be good to go."

_
"they seem about half the volume.... And I'm not some rock and roll heavy metal freak that demands screaming volume.... not at all.....I just want it to be adequate, so that when Im out driving on the road, or working, that I can get it loud enough to hear everything over any outside noise that bleeds through."

Noise:

_
"I wanted them for when I fly, unfortunately they don't cancel out noise like their noise cancelling ones do but they are comfortable and the wireless is very useful."
_
"These are fantastic, but with one caveat- you really have to go wired with these for the gym or very noisy places because the volume with the bluetooth attachment is just not quite there."

Price

Price:
"Very expensive lesson but will be keeping as can still work with ipad but again there are much better unit for a lower price, so buyer beware."
_
"Only complaint is with the price the wire that comes with the headset should be the one with the mic, but this is not a deal breaker."
_
"Being a Bose fan, I would say this one is the cheapest in quality, it does not warranted the price, i. e.: almost everything is plastic, quite a disappointment."
_
"Wow, for the price I paid, I'm disappointed."
_
"And, they come with a cheap cloth bag, not the nice hard case I'd received with previous Bose products."

Quality:

Range

Range:

"They are over the ear but still small, so they will be good for travel."
_
"They also are a great size."
_
"THey are pricey... but well worth the price, and having no wires...I need to update this review for 2 reasons - one is that the more I use these, the more I like them, the ear piece actually swivels a bit, so it is SO comfortable, for any ear position, head size, etc... since I wear glasses this is so important, that they adjust even a tiny bit, is wonderful - so there is no constant pressure on my ears..."
_
"They are the perfect company to make headphones because they make the most of such small speakers."
_
"The design is very clever: all the electronics are contained in a small module connected to the left ear cup."

Sync

Sync:
"Going to the main problem, it is video audio sync issue."
_
"Most of them had moderate audio quality, poor bass, hissed, occasionally had crackles and pops, had lip sync problems, were not comfortable, or had ergonomic problems."
_
"With the Bluetooth headphones, I knew there would automatically be strengths and weaknesses, especially since I could compare them to my Wireless SYNC headphones that do not use Bluetooth technology (they rely on Kleer Technology)."
_
"The headset synced right up with my iPad, but unfortunately, my library is housed in the cloud and my iPad doesn't have internet access work; so I usually listen to my music through my Windows 7 laptop."
_
"I purchased the Avantree APTX LOW LATENCY bluetooth transmitter and reciever 2-in-1 switchable adapter for wireless watch tv without LIP SYNC DELAY - Saturn Pro so I could connect it to my TV and have no problems."

Video

Video:
"Going to the main problem, it is video audio sync issue."
_
"Sitting and watching a movie on my iPad has never been easier."
_
"In general, the audio video delay will be excessive and most noticeable in games where action and audio are supposed to be synchronized."
_
"I am not a sophisticated user of this product or any similar products, I just wanted something that would make things easier and more enjoyable for me when it comes movies, audiobooks, and music."
_
"Phone calls, music and video audio sources all reproduced very well (I've seen before where Bose would balance sound for, say Video Audio, and thus music would need the use of equalization to sound full)."
_
"The best part is it solves the low video volume NEXUS 7 tablets tend to exhibit because the headset has its own volume control which allows me to increase the volume well above the actual output of the tablet."
_
"Syncs easily to IPad - great for music and movies."

"Fantastic when I want to watch a movie on my iPad and not disturb the rest of the family."

"The only very minor complaint is you do seem to lose about 10% volume with the wireless."

"They feel like they've got a good build quality to them but they are lightweight at the same time."

Windows

Windows:
"Fist of all, I had a terrible time finding drivers for Windows Vista 64."
_
"In case anybody has problems with the AE2w, with windows vista 64, the drivers are the broadcom drivers."
_
"I'm inclined to believe it's a compatibility problem between Windows and these headphones, so that's something to keep in mind."
_
"but after failing to connect to Windows and Macbook Air, I talked to customer service and they said you have to buy a third party dongle to be able to use it with laptops."
_
"I am sending them back since they really do not claim to be compatible with Windows 7, and apparently are not."
_
"Edit: PS, after reviewing some other reviews, I should really add that I've had NO PROBLEM connecting to both my windows 7 OS computers, my XP laptop, my Droid (jellybean) motorola razr maxx phone and my Droid (kitkat) samsung tab 8."
_
"Then I realize that they were set to mono, and try them on stereo, and they don't work at all.. (windows 7 professional on the desktop) I connect them up to the laptop, and I don't have much of a problem.. (windows 7 ultimate) not sure why there is a difference, but there it is."
_
"I decided to try this outdoors as well, lost connection as soon as I walked outside - in pocket as well as out of pocket...I then went back in and connected to my PC, pairing was easy (windows 7) and I was immediately able to use the unit... Music played with the same quality as it did from my phone..."

"I bought this set of earpieces so I could have the latest Attempt at wireless headphones (something I have been doing every five years for the last twenty -- buying wireless listening crap just to see how close they were coming); of course I expected that the wireless thing would register a fail on these too, but at least these could then be used with the old TripWireSnarl and it would have good (ie: Bose-not-Bass) sound fidelity."
_
"I never would have imagined that there would be a more comfortable headphone than the QC-15s, or that it would also have an acceptable wireless option, or that it would not require a battery."
_
"I have tried all kind of headphones(wired and wireless) and I assure you guys you wont be disappointed unless you are a fan of beats hp or apple w c owns beats then you would go for this brand but then honestly, this is more superior than any other bt headphones available in the market."
_
"The only very minor complaint is you do seem to lose about 10% volume with the wireless."
_
"Wireless devices overall are less quality than wired devices and I knew that going in, but these are unquestionably the worst sounding wireless headphones I have EVER listen too."
_
"Wired they sounded great but I wanted wireless."
_
"Great wireless device"
_
"These are great wireless head phones."
_
"best wireless headphones."
_
"Theyre extremely light and comfortableThe sound quality is much better than I expected from wireless headphonesFast chargeVery little leakage at a reasonable volume."

iPad:
"I tried with my multiple devices, First I tried iPhone, iPad, they did not sound good at all I tried to make some calls and I have to scream to make the other person hear my voice... this is very disappointing too."
_
"Sitting and watching a movie on my iPad has never been easier."
_
"The headset synced right up with my iPad, but unfortunately, my library is housed in the cloud and my iPad doesn't have internet access work; so I usually listen to my music through my Windows 7 laptop."
_
"I've done this several times while connected to my Iphone and Ipad, and its real annoying."
_
"Great with the iPhone and iPad.."
_
"And to top all that, it is great if you have an iPad or iPhone, as it can handle phone calls or FaceTime perfectly."
_
"The biggest plus for me was the fact that it's able to pair with both my iPad and iPhone simulatiously."
_
"I easily connected to iPhone and iPad, but never got a call on the iPhone to be able to give comment on that."
_
"My 2nd choice was Sony Bluetooth, it was the best in the price range I was looking for ($179), but then Bose gave me the flexibility of easy switching between iPad and iPhone for music and phone calls."
