In short, if you value clean, clear, distortion-free music tight, controlled, not muddy bass, you can't go wrong with Bose Soundlink...And yes, they produce great, crisp bass. Read on:
I just picked up these Bose headphones after a little research. I was looking for a descent pair of wireless headphones. Cords are just driving me crazy and I absolutely HATE earbuds. I lost my Klipsch buds so the search was on.
I currently own a well-played Sennheiser over-the-ear corded model which I've owned for years and are great cans. I like detail in my music. The Sennheisers deliver and I wanted a similar experience in a new wireless pair.
These Bose Soundlink headphones are proving to be great. If you value crisp notes, airy and balanced sound, these deliver. If you enjoy hearing the DETAILS in your music, I believe these will work for you. I was about to pick up a pair of Beats (I know, I know) Solo 3s. Not bashing on Beats, but the overall sound was muddy to me. Bass was good and volume was certainly higher but overall, I thought the Bose sounded much clearer.
Now, about that bass bit. I've read reviews that bass is lacking in the Bose. Actually, I find the base to be quite nicely balanced. I listen to a very diverse genre of music. I just played "9" by Drake which starts with a nice 808 drop. The Soundlinks handled it well with a nice tight kick, snare combo as well. But here's the thing. I've run them in wireless mode and plugged into my iPhone 7. They sound good. But, I also own a $30 headphone amp made inside an Altoids tin. Look it up - Altoids Headphone Amp. They will change how you listen to headphones, if you want to sit and listen. To produce crisp highs, tight deep lows, you actually need plenty of clean power driving your headphones. The puny amp in most mobile devices just isn't up to the task. Plugged into the headphone amp, the Bose units came alive. You will actually damage speakers faster trying to over drive them without enough power than with ample power.
In short, if you value clean, clear, distortion-free music tight, controlled, not muddy bass, you can't go wrong with Bose Soundlink. I'm very happy to have a descent pair of quality wireless headphones, finally. And, the option to use them corded with my headphone amp for a little something extra when in the office and not mobile.
