Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear Headphones II review: Great comfort, smooth sound, sturdier design

 

The latest version of the company's ultracomfortable over-ear headphones look and sound pretty similar to their predecessor with some small but important design upgrades.

Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear II is a lightweight, very comfortable over-ear headphone that offers smooth sound with well-defined bass. Its new design, with a wider headband, seems more durable than its predecessor's and its sealed earcups do a good job...

A little pricey.

The Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear II remains one of the most comfortable, full-size headphones out there, pairing great sound quality with an improved, more durable design.

Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphone II review: Bluetooth bliss

 

Bose's second-generation over-ear wireless headphone features strong performance in a lightweight, comfortable design for $280.

The SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphone II is very comfortable to wear, sounds excellent for a Bluetooth headphone, and offers good battery life (15 hours). It also works well as a headset for phone calls, its buttons are easy to operate by feel,...

Somewhat expensive; not the best option for those who like their music loud and bass-heavy.

The SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphone II mixes a strong blend of comfort and performance in attractively designed wireless headphone.

Bose SoundLink AE Wireless II review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Bose SoundLink AE Wireless II headphones are, as the name suggests, wireless, and do away with cables in favour of a Bluetooth connection. There's still a cable in the box though, should your battery fail, or you don't want to listen wirelessly. We...

Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II review

 

What's the best-sounding wireless headphone available today? That's a tough question to answer, but Bose is staking its claim on the title with its new SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphone II, which comes in black or white for $280, £240 or AU$379.

Bose SoundLink Around-Ear II

 

The Bose SoundLink Around-Ear II is a lightweight, exceptionally comfortable pair of Bluetooth headphones with high-quality sound and a high price.

Solid audio performance with rich bass and bright highs. Incredibly comfortable. Includes a cable for passive, wired listening. Multipoint functionality allows you to pair two devices at once.

DSP sculpts audio—not for purists. Cable lacks inline remote control.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the SoundLink AE II delivers a low frequency response that should please bass lovers. It's not so wildly boosted that it will drive others away, but...
