Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"However, after a few days of regular use the wire which connects the headphones to the jack became faulty causing the audio to break unless held at a specific angle."
_
".....and I just assumed the audio quality would be stellar, as bose products genneraly are, well I recieved them, and I must admit, they truly make a very hansome appearence, in person, as well as the matching carry case and cable, once I pluged them into my Ipod Touch, I was extreemly dissapointed in the audio quality!"
_
"My husband usually has the TV on, and in every headset I've ever used in the past (including the earbuds that come with the iPhone), it picks up on the TV audio and amplifies it - she complains that she can't hear me at all over all the noise."
_
"I laugh at myself when listening to audio books and I can hear the subtle sounds so well that I find myself looking behind me to see if someone is making the sounds in the room I am in!"
_
"Apart from that the audio quality is very good."
_
"Theyre engineered to make all your Prime music sound better, delivering deep, clear audio for all your Prime favorites."
_
"As for calling someone with them - well - others have told me they can hear me well, but the audio for some reason doesn't come through so I can hear them speaking."
_
"However, many brands have far better headphones for more reasonable prices (e. g. SONY, Audio Technica)."

Cable

Cable:
"Ideally, a replacement cord should be sent for the broken one."
_
"All that money and advanced speaker technology, and still a crappy cord."
_
"Yes, I know people complain about the length of the cable, but it's a small issue compared to the good sound quality coming from my iPhone and its ability to block out other sounds from the gym where I exercise."
_
"The cord plugs in rather than being hardwired, which sounds like a great idea, since the cord is often a point of failure with traveling headphones, and in theory you could just replace a damaged cord rather than the whole set."
_
".....and I just assumed the audio quality would be stellar, as bose products genneraly are, well I recieved them, and I must admit, they truly make a very hansome appearence, in person, as well as the matching carry case and cable, once I pluged them into my Ipod Touch, I was extreemly dissapointed in the audio quality!"
_
"I really wasn't sure these would do the trick, they perform beautifully, are comfortable and have the added bonus of a longer cord with adjustable audio control, I could not be happier with my purchase, thank you Bose and Amazon!"
_
"Being able to adjust sound on the cord is a real plus."
_
"These headphones fold and you can remove the cord from it for storage and the cord has a higher and lower sound buttons as well as a main bar in between the sound buttons that when pressed opens up iTunes and when pressed again begins to play your music."
_
"Sound is fine, but it kills me that even a company like Bose can't use a better cord, a nice thick indestructible cord like headphones used to have."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The other brands were either uncomfortable or the sound was muffled or the mic was crackly."
_
"Everyone knows how awesome Bose speakers and headphones sound - but what I wasn't expecting was the superior call quality when using the microphone."
_
"I have other expensive headphones with microphones - and they never pan out for use as the other caller says it's too hard to hear me when I talk - that my voice sounds muffled, etc."
_
"The inline mic is a great feature but for me, it was way too close to the headphone to be used easily."
_
"Inline microphone and remote for easy switching between calls and musicWorks well with phone and is very clear."
_
"These Bose on ear headphones are extremely comfortable and sound is very clear and the mic is great too."
_
"The only advantage that I can see is that it has a sturdier cable connection and a microphone and controller that the previous model did not have, but when buying headphones for music, these are not the right choice."
_
"Great sound, allows for great volume control, and the inline mic is ideal for staying connected without have to unplug."

Music

Music:
"I was unable to control the volume of my music."
_
"For anyone looking to drown out the noise with music, the on-ear version will be somewhat disappointing."
_
"As for the audio, it's really stunning - I am listening to Mahler's 6th on Spotify as I type this and I'm finding it hard to concentrate on anything but this music."
_
"--Sound leakage is minimal so people near you can hear music only when turned up very high, They don't perform as well in this respect as good over-ear phones however."
_
"Great sound for both music and phone calls! "
_
"happy music."
_
"Also if you turn the music up sort of loud other people will be able to hear your music."
_
"I have to turn my music up kinda loud to really enjoy the sound."

Noise

Noise:
"A lot of reviewers complain that these dont hold in sound or outside noises?"
_
"I had the noise canceling ones (Beats executive) and it was annoying to constantly have to change batteries."
_
"Noise canceling option of Bose only gives mediocre sound and I think these already do a good enough job helping me focus at a Starbucks."
_
"As an example, if I have a small fan running in my room, these still sound very good and at less than 50% volume make it hard to hear other outside noise, including conversation."
_
"For anyone looking to drown out the noise with music, the on-ear version will be somewhat disappointing."
_
"My husband usually has the TV on, and in every headset I've ever used in the past (including the earbuds that come with the iPhone), it picks up on the TV audio and amplifies it - she complains that she can't hear me at all over all the noise."
_
"Good noise blocking also."
_
"He told me that all he could hear when they were on was his movie or his game that was playing and for him, being able to drown out background noise is important."
_
"Thinner than my noise canceling set but great quality."
_
"But sound is amazing and blocks out external noise"
_
"I gotta say the outside noise interference was pretty nonexistent."
