Bose SoundTrue On-Ear Headphones review

 

Bose's SoundTrue On-ear headphone is new for 2014 -- it's just not really new. Rather, it's the rebranded version of the company's popular OE2i headphone , which I consider one of the most -- if not the most -- comfortable on-ear headphone you can buy.

The Bose SoundTrue On-Ear headphones are lightweight, very comfortable, sound good, and fold up to fit into a very compact carrying case (included), which makes them very travel-friendly. You also get a detachable headphone cord and an Apple-friendly...

The fidelity comes up short on bass resonance.

The Bose SoundTrue On-Ear is a very comfortable everyday-use headphone that sounds good and collapses into a very compact carrying case.

Bose SoundTrue On-Ear Headphones: Australian Review

 

Bose is back with a new suite of headphones. The company is reinventing itself with more fashionable, slightly cheaper and more lifestyle-friendly models, and the middle of that range is where you'll find the SoundTrue on-ear headphones.

Bose’s new SoundTrue headphones are somewhat more expensive than I’d like, and slightly more expensive than their sound quality justifies, but this is typical of Bose as a brand. You know what you’re getting into when you walk into a Bose store and try...

Review: Bose SoundTrue on-ear headphones

 

The name “Bose” generally brings with it a solid audio heritage, sending the message that what you're about to listen through won't just be great for your ears, but high quality across the board. But high quality often comes with high prices, and...

Fantastic sound, Comfortable to wear, Very compact, Includes carrying case, Replaceable cable

Replaceable cable uses a 2.5mm jack on one end, making it harder to replace, Only one cable included, Build quality is less than desirable

Bose SoundTrue On-ear Review: Lightweight and Sounds Good Too

 

Comfortable, lightweight design. Foldable for easy transportation. Decent audio isolation and good sound.

Relatively high price.

There's a lot to like about the SoundTrue on-ear headphones. It's light enough to wear everywhere, even if the mint-blue makes it look like a child's toy. The black and white versions look good - stylish and modern but not needlessly flashy. These are...

"Perfectly does what it's designed to do"

 

I wear glasses and have a devil of a time finding headphones comfortable enough to wear. These fit the bill perfectly. They do leak sound a little bit and don't completely block out outside sound, but for me that was actually desired (want to still be...

Incredibly comfortable, especially for people with glasses

there is some sound leakage
