    Good quality, but doesn't have noise cancelling effect.

    If you never owned a pair of Bose headphones or anything by Bose then your ears are in for a treat. Of real crisp sound that's not saturated with heavy bass and the mid levels are just that and treble works. These fit very comfortable and they at over the ear meaning that these headphones enclose the whole ear and delivers rich sound. Are they the same as beats no not by a long shot beats are very heavy with bass on where it kills the lyrics to your songs and you will be look for a way to turn down the bass fast but it's great for teens and young adults cause those are the trend. but Bose has sound down to a science and you will not be disappointed with Bose.

    Great comfort with strong sound quality

    This is one of the most comfortable headphones available. It completely surrounds the ear lobes, putting no pressure on your ears at all. I wear glasses, and I find these headphones to be very comfortable for long wear. The sound quality is very good--not absolutely incredible, but at this price, the combination of sound quality and comfortable is unbeatable, in my opinion. I own a set of the Beoplay H6 headphones, and while the B&O sound better, they are not as comfortable as these Bose headphones. Definitely recommended based on value, comfort, and sound quality.

    Great Sound and Comfort

    After trying to find headphones that were comfortable to wear for long periods of time, these became the obvious choice when trying on all the different options at my local store. They are so comfortable and don't squeeze your head/ears at all. They just sit just perfectly which means there is no pain after extended use. There are plenty of adjustments available to make them fit perfectly. They come with a sturdy, zip-close case, which is very helpful for packing them and taking them on-the-go safely. The detachable cord has an inline remote and microphone. These headphones are compatible with my Apple devices. Bose offers great sound quality, as always. I am not an audiophile, so my review is really based on the Bose brand being a quality sound producing company and the very comfortable fit of the actual product. (One missing star because the cord that comes with the headphones is very tiny. It's long enough, but I am sure that it will be the first thing that has to be replaced because it's so thin. I am thankful that it has the ability to be replaced very easily as both ends are detachable. Take note that it's a 2.5mm and 3.5mm male cable.)

    Value for $100! great sound quality

    I did a lot of research on these headphones before settling on them. 5 Stars is for the price of $100. I don't believe i would have payed the original $180. I believe these maybe the most comfortable headphones on the market. You will be hard pressed to find something so lightweight. This is what almost every review i cross checked agrees on. in other words the comfort is UNDENIABLE Ok BASS ! everyone is moaning and groaning about bass or lack thereof, let me put this into context. The bass response is clear and beautiful. It is deep on only some songs and it adds depth to them it is not just over the top bass. So if your a bass fanatic, steer clear and buy some subwoofers. Can i say rock music sounds fantastic on these headphones, wow... I recommend listening to: Everybody loves me - One republic. On another system - car speakers, home speaker, other headphones and then listen to it on these headphones. The difference is astonishing. The drums sound like i am in the studio next to drummer himself. The sound is so pristine that i usually maintain the volume 3-4 deviations under the max volume. I never ever put max when i am jamming. its unnecessary. Some songs are much higher/lower than other and therefore require adjusting but that is usually not the case. And even on the lower set songs i don't need to max out. I notice that the closer you get to max the cleaner the sound - instead of distortion you get more clarity which is impressive. So think about that, i NEVER put it at max, to put this into context - i have a $100 pair of seinheisser In ear momentum 2 (ear buds) and i find myself at max often.

    All day long

    I use ATH M50x pretty much all through out the day, mind you, excellent earphones and I would swear by them and defend them every single day against much pricier and better headphones to death. However, the Bose SoundTrue earphones were a revelation, since the sound quality is almost on par and crucially, I could wear them all day long since they're much lighter than my current pair of over ears. The highs and mids are much crisper, but the lows are not as good as the M50x. All this being said, I bought this for almost half the price, which made it pretty compelling compared to my present set of headphones and ended up gifting it to my girlfriend. I still use it from time to time, and I'm just as amazed as the first time I tried them on for a day, great product overall!

    I will declare that I'm a bit of a Bose fan having bought many Bose lifestyle systems, iPod docks and headphones. I bought this pair for my wife and she loves them. I have the noise cancelling versions because I am on planes frequently. But, you do not need the NC versions of you're not in a noisy environment. Indeed these are slightly preferable because they're even lighter. The sound is rich and balanced without an unnatural tendency towards bass which many of the competitive brands seem to have. Brilliant headphones and good value.

    Portable Sounds

    The Bose SoundTrue headphones are very light and portable. They come with a nice travel case to protect them in transit, although it is a soft material. The sound is very good for the price range; these are the best option <$100 unless you consider yourself an audiophile, in which case I would recommend the Sennheiser HD 558s instead (although they are much bulkier and do not include a case). While the sound is clear, the bass lacks oomph. If you are a bass-head, you will better appreciate the Sony Extra Bass headphones for an extra $30. The included cable is absurdly long, which is convenient sometimes but it also can get in the way if you intend to listen on the go. If you want headphones to workout in the Jabra Moves are a good choice, but they are on-ear. Really, these work all right for exercise, but the cups will get sweaty quickly and the cable can sometimes be obstructive. If you want good headphones you can listen to and forgot your wearing, these are excellent, and the reasonable cost is a massive uptick.

    Snug fit, Excellent Audio Quality

    The headphones are a great fit. While they aren't noise cancelling, they form a good seal so that you hear more music and less of the outside world. The iOS cable is great for phone calls, though I wish the wire/mic was on the right side. Be sure to rip your CDs (If you still have any/know what they are) as lossless files for maximum efficacy! They take up more space, but are worth the quality.

    Excellent headphones

    Bought these headphones mainly for my wife to listen to TV and turn off the speakers and not disturb others in the house. They're expensive for this purpose, but they're excellent and we'll get our money's worth out of them over time. They block out other noise so well that she can't hear me calling her unless I stand in front of the TV and block her view! I did try them out for music and they're excellent and very comfortable. Their volume control is NOT for controlling the sound coming thru the wires, but for directly controlling the volume output of certain compatible devices.

    I read a lot of positive and negatives reviews before buying these. I got them on sale for $90 and feel these are an exceptionally good buy At that price. My purpose for buying these was basic enjoyment of music and movies and I couldn't be happier with these headphones for those purposes. Overall, the sound is great. There are some songs that I found once I adjusted the EQ on my iPod, the sound got even better. As for watching TV or movies on an iPad, these are so comfortable you can fall asleep in them. If you are looking for a basic, comfortable, great sounding, all around pair of headphones you'll be very satisfied with these. I'm not sure I would pay the full $179 retail for these but up to $129 is a price I'd be comfortable with for these headphones.

    Bought these with the money from my geek squad protection on Monster headphones. Best Buy doesn't carry Monster brand anymore so I used the money to purchase these. First off, I highly recommend getting geek squad on everything. It came in handy to be able to purchase these Bose headphones for my son. He loves them telling me that they are very very comfortable for his ears and that the sound quality are superb. He likes them better than the Monster headphones. They are Apple friendly as well!

    The headphones are not just comfortable to wear,( I hate having things IN my ears), but are flexible and lightweight. The sound quality from them is significantly improved from older models. It is truly excellent And as a bonus they came with a carry case so I can travel with them and not have them damaged

    I was looking for a headphones that is comfortable enough to wear for hours and hours. I wasn't really particular with the sound quality and I know there is a lot more headphones with better sound quality. I also need a good headphone for studying and listening to podcast. Bose has nice vocal sounds, I am really happy with it. I only gave 4 stars because the cable is really not that good and it is flimsy, I wish the 3.5mm jack has the "L" shape. Still, great headphones. The most comfortable headphone I have ever worn.

    As expected from owning other Bose products, I have found the Bose SoundTrue Around-the-Ear headphones for Apple products to be exactly "what the doctor ordered"... high-quality sound and true comfort. I couldn't ask for more, especially for under $200. And, their usefulness is not limited to Apple devices.

    Bose SoundTrue provides a Great Sound that's Well Balance for an Inexpensive Price. Once the headphone are properly placed over your ears, the Sound does NOT leak... even at 84% Volume!!! The Ear Cushion is Soft and Comfortable for Long-Term Usage... watched half a Season of DareDevil on My IPad without feeling any discomfort!!! You can NOT go wrong with Bose SoundTrue for yourself or as a gift... Point, Blank, Period!!!
