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.
I am a pool shooting player and play 5 days out of the week. I did my analysis and comparison of top 4 name brands and Bose was the top class by far. I bought it for rough use and got the replacement warranty as well. The sound is clear and comfort to the ear. it doesn't matter using it and wired or wireless the output is great. It have noise reduction which is a great feature. It's works like a multipurpose for my everyday life because I can switch to phone mode, receive and make calls, listen to music or even can link with TV to enjoy. If you want a great top class piece of headphone " BOSE " is the way to go.
I've alway heard such great things about bose so I had to try them out. Omg I was so amazed by these headphones. Such wonderful sound quality! I love these headphones that I brought another pair for my son. Definitely worth it!
Pros: EXCELLENT battery life and EXCELLENT bluetooth range.
Cons: Build quality is poor.
I have owned MANY bluetooth speakers and headphones including the Bose AE2w.
Directly comparing the Bose Soundlink II headphones to the Bose AE2w: AE2w superior in earpad comfort. Soundlink II superior in battery life, bluetooth range and has slightly better sound quality.
The build quality is a massive disappointment, though. The extending metal piece that allows the headphones to extend/contract to fit various head sizes doesn't exactly fit within its housing so that when I turn my head sometimes it clicks. To restate: there's "slop" in the sliding mechanism on the headband.

Bluetooth, Sound quality
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Good sound, mic will pickup all sounds
Bluetooth, Sound quality
The sound and Bluetooth connection is good. I hate that the microphone will pickup all sounds nearby and will make it horrible for phone calls. Also, the plastic will not last more than two years.
I don't think i will but another Bose headphones ever.

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: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!
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!
