The headphones are good, to a certain extent. Don't get me wrong, they were good in many ways but off putting in others. Received the headphones in good condition. Its easy to start up and to use within the app. The first time I tried on the headphones, they were nice. I felt the nice cushions on my ears. When I turned it on and started listening to music, I immediately felt a difference. Most of my other headphones were heavier on bass so listening to this one was weird. I kept hearing more treble than bass so It was disappointing, but overall, it didn't matter to me as I got more comfortable and used to the headphones. One thing I want to note, the headphones only seem to connect to mobile, it will not connect to pc, just in case anyone was wondering. In the end, it is a good pair of headphones from a notable company, an easy to use headphones. Price wise, I've heard music quality similar to this for less than 230$.
Most comfortable headphones I have ever purchased.

These are the MOST comfortable headphones I have ever purchased. I'm also very impressed by the battery life. I leave them charging on Friday night, so Monday morning, they are at 100% (They tell you every time you turn them on what the percentage of battery life is!), and by Friday afternoon, they're usually around 30-40%, and I wear them 6 to 8 hours a day! They do feel on the cheap side but had no quality issues and I've owned them for over two years.
I purchased these headphones for my aging mother, as part of a technology update that combined applications with communications options and high-quality sound. The Bose Soundlink Wireless II are a key feature of this transition, and I can say without a doubt the change is amazing! Setup was a breeze and connected easily with the iPad being used. Mom loves listening to music connected by Bluetooth to her iPad, and you can clearly see how much she enjoys the experience. I have not encountered the microphone issues discussed by other reviewers, although the space where she typically makes calls is normally very quiet.
I sampled these headphones against my current cans, and I enjoyed the spaciousness and sound stage presented by Bose. That said, several songs in my sample sounded a bit too airy and undefined. The Bose headphones were purchased on sale, and for that price I believe these headphones are a great listening value. There are certainly other headphones with better microphone quality, although I believe the experienced sound quality more accurately defines the Bose Soundlink Wireless II. Mom has zero complaints, and yesterday noted that this was the best set of headphones she has ever owned. Great value for the standard listener.
I really enjoyed my Bose Headphone! And I would recommend this to anyone! I am very happy with all Best Buy products!

Love the over ear part
Am truly enjoying these headphones. Volume could get just a tad louder and the adjustment headband part could be a little more firm in the clicks/notches. Sound is very good but could offer a little more base vibe. Also, Bose if listening, when the headphone are on your head correctlty L/R and you move them down to your neck, the speakers can't be rotated flat for better head/neck movement. User has to pull them off and flip them around and then the speaker cups will lay flat. Correcting this would be a nice fix. What I truly like compared to others is these can be worn all day, very soft cups, solid build, lighter than others and buttons function well. In closing, something I was not thinking about when wearing headphones, these headphones I'm sure as well as other hold heat like winter fur covered ear muffs. Anything other than cooler weather, get ready for sweaty ears and moist fitment but changing this would hurt sound deadening.
Overall, these headphones are amazing straight out of the box. The ear cups are very comfortable compared to many headphones I've used and owned in my life. They have great sound overall. They do decent in noise cancelling but they get the job done for being at a desk and getting work done alone.
Through all the positives, I did come to realize there was a small issue. They were not showing up on my windows 10 desktop at all. They didn't show up and I had to plug them in directly and update the drivers for the headphones and it still didn't budge. I didn't give up and went to mess with some audio settings, reset the updated headphones once again and finally got them to work perfectly with no issues after that at all. A small problem but still enough of a trouble for the novice tech user.
Bose! Great sound quality and it just lasts. I’ve used these at the gym, on hikes, and at home; they’ve never let me down. They’re comfortable for wearing for hours and just downright worth the premium. Battery life is great, never worried about then dying on me. Would buy again if i had to but my original pair are still going strong!

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.Full Review
A:AnswerThey do not have ANC(active noise cancelling). They cover the ears and I can hear normal level of speaking when no audio is playing. When audio is actively playing on the headphones, and my wife is sitting right next to me, she has to either scream or nudge/touch me in order to get my attention.
A:AnswerYes, they certainly do work as wire-in headphones. In fact, that's how I use them with my Xbox One. A great advantage of using wire in, is that it does not require any battery usage from the headphones. So, when they are dead (which isn't often), just plug em in!
A:AnswerHello there. Great question. The SoundLink Around-Ear II headphones are great-sounding headphones that allow you to connect via Bluetooth to wireless devices such as your smartphone, tablet, or computer. However, they are not meant for exercising and are not sweat resistant. For that, we recommend the our SoundSport In-Ear headphones which are durable and moisture/sweat resistant for use while exercising. Thanks!
