Ratings & Reviews
Excellent Audio! However....
These headphones were bought for me for Christmas 2011 after trying them at an Apple Retail Store and finding the sound quality ex cellent.
They are very good with bass and despite not being listed as such they do good job of filtering out external noise such as being on a tube train or aeroplane in mid flight. The are comfortable but I wouldn't recommend them if A) you have a large head and/or chunky glasses. They can make the sides of your head sore after prolonged wearing. By this I mean awesome.
However there is a MAJOR gripe! This is the quality of the lead. The end which you plug into your device is alright but the end that plugs into your headphones isn't very sturdy. After only six months the sheath had come out the headphone end of the cable and 7 months later, today, the wire has packed up. Not getting all the sound through. It sounds like it's been encoded at low quality.
Bose do not sell the replacement lead with the inline controls and mic for iPhone/iPad and Mac which is a bit much considering the cost! I may have a scour around ebay but before that I will get a soldering iron and try to fix it.
If your purchase this I recommend buying some self amalgamating tape (Maplins) and wrapping it tightly around the headphone end to try and stop the movement.
Otherwise great headphones! If you plan to use them at home in front of your Mac/Pc I recommend getting the spare cable for home use and save the other for when you are out and about!
3/5 - Great audio but shoddy cable and no replacement available! …

the usual story of the breaking cord
I would have given this headset a 4 star (it is comfortable and light) had it not been for the cord breaking 5 months after I boug ht it. Bose does not sell the replacement cord with mic and commands for this model. They only sell a plane one not useful if you use the headset for the purpose it was intended: command whatever you are playing on you iphone and pick up the phone.
5 months is poor for anything with this price tag and on this website! …

For your concern about the sound quality... the best one for you is actually the one that YOU prefer . As simple as that!
For the comfort, the OE could make a little pressure on your ears after a long period of listening time, but the cushions are really great. Since the AE are around the ears, some people may prefer this type of headphones. Again here, it's all about what you prefer, not what the other people prefer.
So try the 2, and buy the one that you like most. If you can't try, buy the 2, then return the one you like the less.
Don't let others think for yourself ;) …

When you plug these headphones into the headset jack on your Mac, you can use the remote to control the system volume, and playback in iTunes. You cannot control audio playback in another application (say, Spotify for example) with the remote. You cannot use the microphone built into the remote with your Mac, either. …
