Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones


Bose has been surprisingly low-key about its first Bluetooth headphones, the AE2w. I'm not sure why that is, but the company didn't announce the AE2w headphones to the press when they were first launched and it hasn't been promoting them as much as its...

The Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones offer very good sound for Bluetooth, and they're arguably the most comfortable over-the-ear Bluetooth model. The control module is also well designed, with well-placed buttons that can be operated...

Pretty pricey; protruding Bluetooth module looks a little strange; volume may not be loud enough for some people, depending on device used and type of file played.

Despite a few question marks and a high price, the Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Bluetooth Headphones are a very good-sounding Bluetooth pair that's lightweight and very comfortable to wear.

The sound is amazing, super comfortable, easy to connect with iPhone X and 8 plus. I was stuck between buying this or the beats solo for my bf. I picked these instead as they felt much more comfortable. He loves them and I am soooo happy with my purchase.

Only Bluetooth!


I bought this and nowhere on the box or on the website goes it say that these are only designed for Bluetooth, I wanted to use them for watching tv.

Mixed feelings


Although the personal quality sound is very good, a fundamental floor is that it is clearly audible to those sitting near by.Is this a failing of all around-ear headphones? I don't think so.
