These Bose earphones have special Bose input but are basically entry range headphones that will not suit the sound preferences of audiophiles and disc jockeys.

They are recommended for basic personal use only and may not be suitable for constant travelling as they wear-out easily. They can be used as gifts, but at a midrange price of a little under a hundred and fifty dollars, they are quite expensive compared to other headset types of similar entry range characteristic features.

Although sound quality is deemed acceptable by most users, these earphones leak out sound to the surroundings. The casing of these headphones are made of plastic and have been found wanting in the aspect of durability.

Additionally, the wires and connectors are made from basic cheap material which will not stand the test of time. Other parts of these Bose around-ear headphones such as the plastic head strap, can hinges and ear cushions are also made from cheap material which cannot withstand abusive use and will wear away with time.


Basically, if you are looking for low entry level earphones for personal use, the Bose around-ear headphones come to mind.

Also, they are a wonderful gift for the Bose brand name fanatic who does not care about the intricacies of picking out an earphone for functionality and durability sake.

On the other hand, most average headphone users and audiophiles alike will find these around-ear headphones to be a waste of resources especially as there are more durable headphones with good specialized functions and ability out there for lower prices.

Suitable substitutes for these headphones include; the Bose Quietcomfort 2 acoustic noise cancelling headphones, the Bose Quietcomfort 3 acoustic noise cancelling headphones and the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint Active Noise cancelling headphones.

These headphones mentioned above are absolutely outstanding in capability and functionality and will give you the best of sound quality and durability all in one package. Bottom line is for a good price, you get some of the best quality headphones from Bose.
