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.

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 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...

Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless II Review: Cutting the Cables

 

Excellent sound for a Bluetooth headset Comfortable and endlessly wearable Bluetooth works flawlessly Fantastic battery life

Expensive Plastic build doesn't feel premium
