Good for a basic headphone


I use these for when I go on walks. They are good quality and do a good job of drowning out background noise.This product has... Good for the car, comfortableAbout me... walker


Wire is long

Consumer review by:

well made, sounds great, one wire to system


over all their a keeper. Great for working at a computer at work or at home because you do not feel like you are being choked by a bottom wire connecting the ear pieces. Great fit.

no wire underneath connecting two ear phones

could be louder and have more bass

This is exactly what we were looking for.


I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He had been looking for good headphones. I got the on-ear instead of the over-the-ear by accident. He loves the sound quality however does have an issue with ear comfort. He still uses it daily...

The sound quality is amazing

Comfort on the ear

Good sound for the money


These headphones are a great size as they are not overly large. They fit great and don't hurt my ears even when worn for more than a couple of hours. The sound is on par with others in this same price range.

Nice headphones for the price


I wanted a light weight pair of headphones to take to the gym everyday. Didn't want beats like everyone else. Bose has been around for a long time and I trust the brand. It was a great purchase. Got them on sale and I use them everyday. I'm very...

Great sound and portable. Like that it comes with a carrying case
