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.

  • Full, natural sound for all your music
  • Softly padded headband and memory foam cushions

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.

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!

As usual, Another Awesome product by Bose

By Ice

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 !

Now a 5 Star

By BobFoss6

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

About two weeks ago, I got the SoundTrue II and liked them. I also like my original SoundTrues. I had originally thought the new ones were a bit more bass heavy and thought maybe Bose was competing with Beats. Well, after listening to many genres of my music library, and adjusting the EQ to different genres, I'd have to say these are as good, perhaps better, than the originals. The online audio magazines think since the components of both SoundTrue generations are the same, the earcup design slightly alters the richness in the bass. The icing on the cake for these new headphones, though, was that they have a thicker headband than the originals, and the new Blue color perfectly matches my new iPod Touch. These headphones don't use much battery power either which, along with using the iPod Touch, saves my iPhone battery tremendously. Thanks Bose for these supremely comfortable, rich-sounding headphones.

Best value for money

By Francois83

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I've received a complimentary pair of the Bose SoundTrue headphones II from Bose for review purposes and I am happy to report that these are probably the best value for money pair of headphones that Bose make. For one they are extremely light (I'm talking about forgetting you have headphones on light) and exceptionally comfortable cushioning (which I can only assume is memory foam) in the cups which make them ideal for long periods of use. The Sound quality is exceptional and although they do not have the Active noise cancellation that the QC25 model has, they offer phenomenal noise isolation from outside noise. Sounds are crisp and clean and lows are rich. I found them ideal for working on my computer or tablet for extended periods of time. If you combine those facts and the price being almost half the price of the QC25's and very similar sound quality and design, they are in my opinion very good value for money. I can wholeheartedly recommend these headphones to anyone.

Best you can get for the price

By Edgar

from Undisclosed

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.

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I received my SoundTrue Bose Headphones on Christmas Eve and they are simply amazing in terms of the overall design and sound. I own a pair of the SiE2i Sport earbuds and they sound great as well. These devices are very comfortable and produce nice bass and clear sound. I will always be a Bose Fan.

Sound quality of Bose

By rfoxinc

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I bought this and for the price I was worried, but it's the Bose sound, very clear & detailed highs and un-intrusive lows make this a great product, Pros: Good sound quality over all Very comfortable especially for long sessions Durable design Cons: Doesn't have a very high volume for a product with this price point, (The con isn't very relevant as at almost the highest volume you'll have no problem hearing your content on an iPhone)

Standard Bose

By RDW 55

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

First I got these SoundTrue around-ear headphones for free from Bose for doing a test and review.Not our first Bose products.My wife and I each have in ear headphones for the gym plus we have QC 25 headphones a SoundTouch 30 and 10 wireless systems. So when these came I expected quality and a Very Good sound.Came in the mail through UPS.Was packaged very well.Shouldn't have to worry about damage if you order on line.First thing I noticed when I took them out of box was how light they were.So you should be able to wear for hours without discomfort.Fit and finish-hinges-adjusting size - ear cups- all that you would expect from Bose - Top Notch.Now the sound.I listened to 5 hrs. Of music with these.The longest I had them on at one time was 2 hrs.Very comfortable and the cups didn't get hot.A little warm but not bad at all.I listened Stanko-Coltrane-Davies on Pandora and the sound of these jazz greats was superb.With these headphones on I can hear soft sounds like the light of a cymbal,the brush on a snare drum,sounds without the headphones I don't hear.Went to Sinatra to hear singing.Not disappointed at all.Turned the volume way up, no distortions or crackling, just good solid sound.Used on iPad -iPhone-Shuffle worked great on all.Had great separation between left and right.For the money would highly recommend.Only thing I didn't really care for was the plug that goes into your device.QC has a plug that comes out and then turns at a 90.Even the in ear headphones has a similar plug.This one comes straight out which looks like it might be easier to break off.So. If looking for a good set but don't want to spend top dollar, give these s try.

Great Sound

By Gwdetroit

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I love these headphones I received free from Bose as a review sample. That have a very clean detailed sound with full natural bass that is not overpowering on phone. I am hearing a lot of details in the music that I was missing with my older headphones. Great improvement over the older headphones. The overall sound is very balanced and pleasing for all types of music and extremely comfortable.

I love these headphones!

By JimboATL

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I have had several other brands of headphones over the years, and none can match my BOSE headsets. i currently own three sets of Bose headphones, and I cannot say enough about them. The SoundTrue around ear headphones are my newest possession, and I am very pleased with them. They have great sound; solid, even bass, crystal clear mid-range and sparkling highs. These headphones are very comfortable on the ears, with soft, yet plush feeling cushions, and the headset itself is very lightweight for full size around the ear headphones. Indeed, my other two BOSE headphones are both QC25 noise cancelling models, and this headset without the noise cancelling circuitry is substantially lighter in weight and feel when on the head. These are perfect for general around home or office use- when noise cancellation isn't needed, and you just want to listen and enjoy.

Awful

By hopewashere

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear:

I truly can't stand these headphones. I've used them a fairly normal amount and through this use they've constantly fallen apart, and the left half had just blown out. They are also bulky and fairly unpractical.
