In this article, we review three of the most popular Bose headphones—for serious music lovers who are willing to pay the price for superior sound.

When you listen to music, you want to hear every note as clearly as the last. This is especially true when listening privately with a set of headphones.

Of all the manufacturers available, Bose is by far the premier maker of quality headphones. A set of Bose headphones makes your listening experience satisfactory and pleasing.

There are a few different types of Bose headphones available: around the ear headphones, in-ear headphones and noise cancelling headphones. Bose makes all three with a quality that is unequalled in the industry.

Let's look at each one and what people that already own them are saying about them.

Bose around the ear headphones

As the base model in the Bose headphones line, these are the best selection for the price conscious buyer. With a weight of only 5 ounces, these headphones will not tire your ears out like ear buds. You will also not get that ache from having to support heavier models.

Though users have stated that the construction is a bit low end, the sound quality is definitely Bose standards. The patented Bose foam ear cup technology is there for outside noise exclusion which is NOT part of the product description, so that is a benefit you get free with these Bose headphones.

The bass response is reported to be magnificent and the sound reproduction in the high registers is fabulous as well. Bose sound technology has been advanced for years and is evident here, even in their low end model.

If you are like us, you want the best tone and sound possible as you listen. Any music lover will agree with this point and Bose around the ear headphones fit the bill very well.

As far as price goes, these are in the $125 to $150 range and may be a little pricey, but ALL reviews say that they are well worth the money and a good investment, nevertheless.

Normally called ear buds, Bose has an answer for this one as well. Patented Bose advancements guarantee your listening pleasure here. The high and mid range tones are extremely clear with the bass being described as "over the top" in some cases.

As ear buds go, these are not supposed to cancel outside noise and many users have made that complaint. What they do not realize is that the ear bud has not been invented that provides that benefit.

These simply fit into the ear with a silicone cover that gives a snug fit so they don't fall out. A measure of noise cancellation is afforded, but cannot be expected at the level of around the ear Bose headphones or any other brand for that matter.

Price is never a complaint at around $89 or so. For the price, you get comfort as well as that sound quality you expect from Bose products. With a weight of less than 1 ounce overall, ear fatigue is not a problem.

Some ear bud type earphones tire the ear quickly and can cause ear damage at high volumes. With the Bose earphones (ear bud style), the frequencies are modulated over the spectrum of volume and tone to avoid that as a concern. Major benefit for those of us that enjoy loud music in a private setting.

In the price range of about $300, these Bose headphones are above the cut for the serious sound lover in you. All the Bose quality is there and the construction materials are superior, by all reports.
