Bose SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones review: Premium performance

 

Although Bluetooth isn't a new technology, there has been a renewed interest in Bluetooth devices of late, with a push towards quality that's seeing some of the more established audio brands producing a wider range of wireless audio devices than ever...

Comfort, clarity, optional wired connection, voice prompts are useful, 15-hour battery life

Expensive, plastic constuction perhaps belies the price

The Bose SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones offer a great solution for those looking for good quality headphones to use on the move. Their folding nature, lightweight and compact design make them a pleasure to tote around.

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth On-Ear Headphone review

 

Bose fans have been waiting for the company to release a noise-canceling headphone that also has wireless capabilities. The SoundLink Bluetooth On-Ear isn't that headphone, but it is the company's first model with Bluetooth truly integrated into it and...

The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth On-Ear is compact, comfortable and sounds excellent for a Bluetooth headphone. It also works well as a headset for phone calls, its buttons are easy to operate by feel, and battery life is good at 15 hours.

It's somewhat expensive and the sound in wired mode isn't great.

The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth On-Ear is pricey, but it's also one of the best -- if not the best -- on-ear wireless headphones to date.

  (Rating Hidden)

If over-ear headphones seem too chunky for your daily life, this Bose Soundlink on-ear foldable pair could have caught your eye. They fit into a neat, zipped pouch when not in use, which should help to protect them if they're stuffed into your bag most...

Bose SoundLink on-ear Bluetooth headphones

 

What you can expect from these Bose is great sound quality and comfort, and a high price

Form factor ; Earcup design ; Bluetooth ; Battery life

Expensive ; Imbalanced sound

When it comes to these headphones, it’s about the comfortable form factor, convenient Bluetooth, and excellent (but not perfect) sound. Yes, $329 is undeniably expensive for what you get, but if you can find these headphones at a cheaper street price,...

The SoundLink on-ear headphones tick a lot of boxes, but aren’t without flaws. Bose is asking for $329 ($399 in NZ), and for that you get a well-rounded experience.

Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones

 

The Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones deliver a high-quality audio experience in a comfortable design, but they have plenty of competition in this price tier.

Compact size. Powerful audio performance with rich bass response and well-defined highs. Simple control panel layout makes for easy operation. Can be used in wired, passive mode.

Sculpted sound signature not for purists. Pricey.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the SoundLink On-Ear delivers intense deep bass response. At top, unwise listening levels, the bass does not distort, and at moderate-to-high volume levels,...

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth On-Ear Headphone Black

 

Bose's earlier over-ear AE2w -- now called the SoundLink Bluetooth Around-Ear -- simply added a removable Bluetooth component to an existing wired headphone (the AE2, which is now called the SoundTrue Around-Ear ). The AE2w is an excellent Bluetooth...

The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth On-Ear is compact, comfortable and sounds excellent for a Bluetooth headphone. It also works well as a headset for phone calls, its buttons are easy to operate by feel, and battery life is good at 15 hours.

Bose Soundlink wireless headphone review: Who needs wires?

 

The Soundlink is a Bluetooth headset in the true sense of the term and lets you make and receive calls on the smartphone.

If you are the sort who is always spotted with a headphone around your neck, then this is one of the best options for you. However, for those who want a travel headphone, the Bose QC25 still offers more value, despite its wired existence.
