I have used Bose around ear headphones and of course they sound a bit better but for the price these are great. these use a AAA battery and Bose use rechargeable ones i believe. both are pretty comfortable. Bose noise canceling is better but again there much more expensive. in the end if u got money for Bose there better but most people cant spend that much extra would probably be over $100 more.
also Bose on ear headphones sound difference is negligible.
