Better than the Beats Solo HD
If you enjoy the quality of the way your music sounds, you'll opt for these headphones before the Beats Solo HD. The significant d If you enjoy the quality of the way your music sounds, you'll opt for these headphones before the Beats Solo HD. The significant difference is the midrange or the vocals in the track. With the Beats Solo HD the vocals sound like they are pushed to the back. The Bose OE2i has a crisper sound quality. Everything is leveled and is not drowned out by the bass. Another difference is these headphones will automatically adjust the levels to fit your music. THAT SAID... These are not sexy, they don't come in red or white and they don't supply 2 high quality connection cords. The flip side to that is they are extremely light compared to the Beats Solo. I believe the Apple Store has both headphones hooked up to iPods so you can go in and do a sound check for yourself. NOTE: I have the Bose & my son has the Beats = Classic vs. Fresh …

Bose OE2i Stereo Headphone

Note that when using this EQ, the highs are sti The OE2i has a very rolled-off high end which is helped some by Treble Booster EQ. Note that when using this EQ, the highs are still not as strong as the average hi-fi headphone. Still, once EQ'd, the sound is very good for a lightweight foldable headphone, with excellent bass that is not boosted or otherwise bad in any way. Some people have questioned the Bose price for what they feel is average sound quality, but when you look close at the portability aspect and probably the best sound of any headphone with this design, it looks pretty good and is a good value in my opinion. The very small carrycase is nice and will fit into nearly any bag, the style is very chic, the comfort very good, and on a scale of 1 to 10 I'd rate the sound as a 7. Highly recommended. …

Bose OE2 Headphones! Awesome!
I have a lot of "Monster" headphones such as beats solo HD etc.. But I would say Bose OE2 headphones are way better in terms of PU I have a lot of "Monster" headphones such as beats solo HD etc.. But I would say Bose OE2 headphones are way better in terms of PURE SOUND QUALITY, BASS is so good even playing Hip-Hop music, MIDS are way way better than any other headphones out there, its just so clear and crisp! TREBLE is so balance, you can hear every detail of whatever that you are listening to. Yes its a bit pricey but guess what, ITS WORTH IT! I also bought JBL j55, its not as good as this headphones, build quality per say, JBL is more light and "plasticky" as to compare to Bose OE2.
RECOMMENDATION? Its simple.. BUY one and you'll say.. ITS WORTH IT. …
