Bose AE2w review

 

Bose dips its toe into the Bluetooth headphones pool. Come on in, the water's lovely

Great sound ; Brilliantly comfortable

Wireless element sticks out

We don't like the lumpy receiver but the sound is smooth as silk

Bose AE2W

 

Super-comfy wireless headphones from Bose

Decent sound quality ; Comfortable

Ugly, large Bluetooth housing ; Slightly expensive

They look a bit odd thanks to their chunky Bluetooth module, but these comfortable, good-sounding Bose AE2W headphones are worth considering if you’re out for a pair of wireless cans.

Bose AE2w

 

They trump their rivals in terms of comfort, and deliver a detailed sound. But they struggle to stay poised in the higher and lower frequencies

Immersive vocals ; Open and detailed sound ; Light and comfortable ; Can connect to two devices simultaneously ; Good at blocking external noise

Slightly hard in the treble ; Bass isn’t as tight as we’d like ; Distortion at higher volumes ; Leak some sound

That doesn’t make these headphones undesirable, though.

Bose AE2w

 

Despite a few question marks and a high price, the AE2w headphones are a very good-sounding Bluetooth pair that's lightweight and very comfortable to wear.

Bose AE2w

 

Bose has long set the benchmark in portable sound. The AE2w maintains that tradition.

Comfortable

Unintuitive controls

Although the Bose AE2w headphones aren’t cheap, the comfort and sound quality are very high value.

Bose AE2w Bluetooth wireless headphones review

 

Bose has created its first wireless set of headphones with the AE2w which can connect wirelessly to compatible devices using Bluetooth.

Can pair with 2 devices, Volume a little low

 

I think these are well designed and would buy them again.

These headphones have the ability to pair with 2 devices at once which is great when I'm in the office. I pair with my music device and my iphone and it automatically detects incoming calls and pauses the music. Once the call ends, the music picks back...

The music is not as loud as I like, but I suppose that is a good thing on my ears. It's not bad, but if you're a metalhead you may wish they cranked up a little higher

Wireless headphone are Epic

 

Love the fact that there are WIRELESS, no more worrying about the cord getting tangled. Freedom to wear everywhere and they are not heavy at all. Which is a another plus. Bose sounds great as usual & the charge is as stated. I wear them everywhere...

Great sound and very comfortable

 

I bought the headphones more for use with my phone than listening to music wirelessly. But the SoundLink headphones are so comfortable (you hardly notice them on your ears) that I use them for listening to music while I work. The sound quality is...
