Sound is decent, Price is high, Cable WAY TOO LONG
Written by Keith H from Los Angeles
For years I couldn't understand why people would pay this much for headphones but on an impulse at the airport I bought some. Battery doesn't come fully charged so that was a waste of money at the time, and the purpose for which I was buying them... But at any rate, I think they are great sounding headphones.
MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT is that these are marketed towards the iPhone/iPod/iPad crowd AND YET the cable is 6ft long! This is beyond idiotic in my opinion. And being a proprietary connector, to this date Bose does not sell a shorter cable! Three stars for this oversight. I'm not normally a complainer but it really affects my enjoyment of this product. The extra cable is constantly getting tangled in things and I've tried cable spools and the like but that just adds more unnecessary bulk to the mix.
BOSE, HOW HARD IS IT TO SELL A SHORTER CABLE? COME ON ALREADY!
I bought these headphones in October 2012 and they already don't work. I need to get them replaced with my warranty. I spent £300 on these and find this outrageous.
Don't get me wrong these are not bad headphones because the sound deafening really works well. The acoustics aren't that great and seem a bit artificial, not crystal clear as you'd expect. Every time you use them you need to recharge the sound deafening battery otherwise they wont work without it. There seem to be some serious reliability issues with it because I read on other reviews that there headphones also stopped working.
Dont' waste your money on these!! THIS PRODUCT IS FLAWED just get something else with better sound quality and reliability.
