Overview

Headphones are an intensely personal piece of equipment. They touch you, literally, they move you, figuratively, and they envelop you, completely. The Bose SoundTrue around-ear headphones strike a perfect note in terms of sound quality, comfort and aesthetics.

They are so lightweight you might forget you're wearing them. They sound so good you'll be constantly reminded you're wearing them. And, they reflect Bose build quality at every turn. The headband, the earcup swivel, the cable attachment feature quality material, components and workmanship, and the earcup contours,and headband lines show Bose's commitment to ergonomic equipment that integrates with the way you enjoy music. Plus, their beauty is not incumbent upon delicacy. These headphones are designed to endure the kind of treatment headphones tend to receive, bewing taken off and put back on repeatedly, being stored outside if the case and occasionally being dropped. No problem. Bose SoundTrue Headphones are built to survive your busy life.

Connectivity
SoundTrue headphones are designed to work with your iPhone® and other Apple® products. The integrated inline remote located on the back of the microphone lets you adjust volume, play/pause tracks, skip tracks forward/backward, fast forward/rewind and change playlists. You can also switch between calls and music with one-touch, all without reaching for your device.

Smart design
More than a statement in style, SoundTrue headphones are designed to provide lasting quality. The audio cable attaches to a single earcup for greater freedom of movement and less tangling. It also detaches for convenient storage. The earcups conveniently fold flat and the headband is collapsible. And the included carrying case makes for easy transport while displaying your design choice.

Sound Quality: The sound quality of these headphones is the best that I have ever heard by far. They are the best way to go if you are considering any around-ear headphones. Sound goes loud if you prefer and the quality does not get any lower the louder you go. Soft music with the noise canceling was absolutely incredible and really removes you from the world and focused in. Comfort: When wearing these, they do not feel bulky at all and move with you. They do not feel like they are about to fall out at all. Very soft on the inside of the ear and comfortable to wear anywhere. Noise Canceling: When the Noise Canceling is on, It is simply the best out there. I have tried others but they do not even compare at all to these. Adding music makes it the best experience I've ever had when wearing these headphones. Best Overall: My favorite features of these headphones was the noise canceling and the music as well. Sound quality is amazing and they are also easy for storage and protection. Very happy customer.

I'd had the original Bose Around Ear headphones for about 8 years and absolutely loved them. Unfortunately, I ended up losing them in my recent trip to Europe - left them on a plane (at least I know some Spanish airline worker can listen to music properly). Anyways, I had to upgrade and decided to go with the all black around-ear SoundTrue II. First of all, I absolutely love the all black design. In addition, these headphones are drastically more comfortable than my previous Around Ear's. However, the sound quality is completely different; AVERAGE. I was skeptical after listening for a week to songs that I had recently heard on my old AEs, and noticing some differences. It became evident when I decided to do a test with my sister's AE2's and my new SoundTrue II's. Listening to the exact same song on my laptop and switching headphones at multiple points in the song, I noticed that my fear had been realized, the SoundTrue's were much worse. Going from the AE2's to the ST2's, it seemed like the volume on my computer had dropped at least 40%! As a loyal Bose customer (and especially anti-Beats!), this baffled me. How could the latest and "greatest" sound worse than a 4 year old headphone?! Unfortunately I still do not have that answer, but have some theories. Thus, I am extremely disappointed and will be returning my SoundTrue II's. Form needs to follow function, always. That was my biggest critic about Beats and the biggest reason I championed Bose. Thank goodness I discovered this sooner than later; I wouldn't want to be seen as a hypocrite. Such a shame.

As usual, Another Awesome product by Bose

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

As a serious Bose fan, I bought a new pair of the SoundTrue II Headphones. I really did not need them, but I thought to myself...........These are Bose ! How can I go wrong ? I didn't go wrong ! I loved them ! Took them with me on a cross country road trip with some friends. When I wasn't driving, I was jamming out ! A few of the guys decided they wanted to check out my headphones. They fell in love with them ! So, on our trip 3 extra sets of headphones were bought ! The only way I see it is that I will always stay with Bose for my music listening needs ! Thank You for an excellent product !

Best you can get for the price

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

Just got my new headphones and they are blowing my mind. Design is pretty good, not too fancy nor cheap, just on point. Battery saving on my iPhone is great, and the sound quality is unbelievable, just as you would expect from a Bose product. Only thing I would change is the cord length which is a little too long. I've read some reviews regarding the volume, in my opinion these headphones are perfect. Some people may like something louder but that would just damage your hearing.

It's OK I guess....

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

Once in a while I was in love with Triport products. Bose headphones really live up to their names in around 2007 and such when they churn out three revolutionary products called Triport OE, Triport IE and Triport AE. Being the largest of the three allows AE to have unprecedented bass response and such, but it's not the case for BOSE. Among the original product line aka the first generation BOSE headphoens, IE stands out as a typical bass-heavy product that churn out an abnomal amount of bass which you can often find on bose small speakers, OE really shines with its unprecedented fit and incredible comfort, and that kinda left AE behind. What makes AE so special & unique was it's normal or somewhat easy-going approach towards all frequency spectrum. We don't get tons of bass in AE as in OE and IE, but instead we got some really high-quality spectrum balance from lows to highs, they're smooth, with that little sparkle in the high notes to discern acoustic guitar from electric ones. Things went down hill from 2nd generation and now SoundTrue comes out I think it's the worst generation. BOSE has a reputation of good sound, and it also has a reputation of tuning bass down generation by generation, such is the case with WAVE, soundtouch or soundlink, and the same rule applies to bose headphones. Jesus, no. AE's not worth the price. I'm disappointed.

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

Got these for christmas and i am loving them even months later. Great comfort and even though they aren't the noise cancelling version, they block out a great amount of outside noises. Highly recommend these to anyone looking for some nice around ear headphones!

Love these headphones but....

By Shawn731

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I purchased my Bose SoundTrue II several months ago and I really like them. The sound quality is magnificent and it's a great pair of headphones to listen to music with. However, I have a very big issue with my Bose headphones. Whenever I do housework, I just slide my headphones onto my ears and listen to some music. As I continue my housework, the wire connecting the headphones to my iPod always gets tangled due to the excessive length of the wire. The wire is so long that I can listen to music on one side of a room and have the iPod placed on the other side of the room. I also measured the length of my wire and it is about 65 inches long!! I do not understand why the default headphone wire has to be more than 5 ft long when I am simply listening to music with my iPod close to me in my pocket. Is there any way I can get a significantly shorter wire for my headphones so listening to my music can be less frustrating? I love my Bose headphones otherwise. However, this issue would be the issue that causes me to reduce my usage of my headphones or to reduce my usage of any Bose headphones.

Doesn't measure up to its Ancestor!!

By Vignesh25

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I got these about two years back as a successor to my Old Bose Triport Supra Aural headphones.They do not measure up when used with high end products like the DAP I just purchased and also a vintage amp I had at home.They sound good when used with a normal device like an iPhone or other android but still can't seem to be better considering that these were launched much later than the triports.The triports were atleast discussed by many audiophiles.The Trusound II don't have that following anymore!!

Great potential, lacking product

By JustCallMeJacob

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I received these headphones for free, as a part of the Bose Test and Review program, and I decided to delay in writing my review while I really tried these headphones out. My main problem with these headphones was that they have a cripplingly small sample space. The audio quality is not terrible but could still be better. I would consider other pairs of headphones before I decided to buy these ones. That said, these headphones are still incredibly light and well built to the same standards as other Bose products. They also have that recognizable Bose look, if that matters to you.
