4 out of 5 eggsBuy if you favor comfort over sound

Pros: -The most comfortable headphones that I have EVER used
-Sound isn't bad but it really depends on what type of music you listen to
-Good for classical music or music that isn't bass heavy

Cons: -Not great for bass heavy music
-Carrying bag is really worthless.

Other Thoughts: Gave this to my sister and purchased a different set of headphones.

5 out of 5 eggsLightweight Workhorse

Pros: Durable
Clear highs
Easy to Travel with
Little Bleed with good ear cushions
Detachable cord for replacements

Cons: It's a little bit nitpicky but I ride the subway every morning and sometimes if the cord snags on a rail or something it immediately detaches without notice and falls to the floor. I've nearly lost the cable numerous times from this. At least replacement cables are inexpensive.

Other Thoughts: I've had these Headphones for 2 and half years and they still are going strong. The main worry you'll have with these is replacing the wire every few months from general wear and tear. The socket end usually strips with continuous commuting. Right now The audio quality has only diminished a little bit - the clarity is getting a little bit fuzzy, which is normal after such a long period of time blasting music. Soon I will have to replace the ear cushions on this set because the foam underneath is pretty much completely exposed. Overall, I think for 2 years of utter abuse these have held up pretty well. Earbuds for me usually only last one or two months.

5 out of 5 eggsBose AE2 Headphones

Pros: Great Sound. I read that the demographic for these is the old white guy. Fits me. No overbearing bass to mess up my Bach, yet the rumbling reed of Big Walter suits me fine. Cool. The Demographic people are nuts.

Cons: Satisfied completely.

5 out of 5 eggsComfortable and sound great

Pros: I had the triports for a long time, bought these because I loved how comfortable the triports were- these are just as comfy! I can wear them all day long and not get a headache (which happens with my gaming headset after only like an hour). Also, the sound is awesome.

Cons: Let 'em break in before you decide they sound bad. The wire was more "delicate" than I expected. Seems kind of lightweight, but it's not really a problem.

Other Thoughts: I recommend these if you love great quality and comfortable headphones!

2 out of 5 eggsI Was Disappointed

Pros: Lightweight and comfortable.

Cons: I'm a fan of Bose products. I've had several pair of the triport tp1a headphones for several years. I' love them. Also have Bose speakers for my computer at home and love them. So I bought these headphones as a replacement for my headset at work, because the leather around the muffs is flaking off and making a mess. I got the AE2. The sound is NOWHERE even close to the Triport. Some of my favorite songs sound like you are in a tunnel or listening to a cell phone on the AE2. Extremely poor audio quality. Goes in and out. Left them on overnight to see if they would burn in. Nope. Still sounds terrible. I'll leave them on over the weekend but I don't see that helping any. Seriously disappointed. Think I will either look for the Triport model or some other brand next time.

5 out of 5 eggsI love them.

Pros: Nice crisp, clear sound. Bass is just right. Not overpowering or lacking. Sounds very neutral and natural if that makes sense. I cannot stress enough how comfortable they are. Connector to device is very high quality single piece rubber. Very durable feeling. Overall, I am extremely happy with them and you will as well.

Cons: They have about a 20 hour break-in period. They will sound much better after that. Trust me at first you probably be a little disappointed because they sound slightly choppy.

Other Thoughts: They sound more powerful the better the audio source is. Meaning better audio files, more powerful receivers, etc.

5 out of 5 eggsIgnore the Bose haters

Pros: Clear sound
Equalization works for all music

Cons: Wire is pretty flimsy

Other Thoughts: Ignore all the Bose haters online, give them a try and make up your own opinion, but they are worth trying. I have to say if at first if they sound bad; try using them on a better sound source. They do sound better with a headphone amp. They sound great with any music and are great for anything really.
