The black Bose AE2i Around-Ear Audio Headphones with Mic and Remote offer outstanding audio quality in an extremely lightweight, comfortable design. Whether listening to your home stereo system, video game system, portable music player, or smartphone, the Bose AE2i headphones put you into the sonic experience.

Acoustic equalization techniques and proprietary TriPort headphone structure deliver all the nuances that other headphones often miss, with smooth natural sound and deep lows without using artificial bass boosters.

The cushioned, around-ear design along with the thin, adjustable headband and lightweight construction allow you to listen for hours while barely noticing your headphones. When you do notice them, you'll take pride in the sleek, stylish design. Because they sit over the ears, the headphones provide a high degree of natural sound isolation, helping to block out unwanted ambient noise.

The single-sided cable resists tangles and is detachable for easy replacement and storage. The inline microphone and 3-button remote allow you to make phone calls, take voice notes, control playback, and adjust volume on compatible smartphones and MP3 players, such as the iPhone and iPod touch. The standard 3.5mm plug offers wide compatibility with MP3 players, CD players, laptops, and more. The fold-flat design and included carrying bag offer further flexibility as well as easy storage and transportation so you can bring your Bose experience anywhere.

      I've been a fan of Bose for a long time and proud to own something of theirs. I needed headphones which will be high quality, good to travel with and compatible controls for iPhone use. The audio quality is amazing, however lacking base. I'm envy of BEATS people for their base. It's the only downfall of these headphones. I like their style, they are lightweight and extremely comfortable, even for sports!. Their pouch case is rubbish, but I'm fine with that. they're much better value than BEATS STUDIO. There are much better Sennheisers, but the travel and control functions are a must for me.I can hear things in songs I never heard before. Yeah!!!

          I haven't used the Quiet Comfort Bose but these did block out right much outside noise during airline travel. The quality is very good. In addition, if using one of the Apple i____ products, the controls allowed through the in-line microphone are an excellent feature.

              Great comfort for wearing also in summer. Simple use of the remote. The only drawback is that can be used only with Iphone-Ipod. the cable is very long so doesn't matter if you move around with your chair. The quality is very good considering the absence of an active noise reduction.
              For this range of price one of the best product.

                  I would first like to say like everyone else would, let's make a list.They are indeed comfortable and u will have sweaty hears no matter what temp it is outside (Good for winter:) .Construction on these are great and u don't have to baby them or fear that they are going to crack easily due to simple tugging or dropping.Sound is awesome they have a 3 star for bass and I listen to a lot of new age, instruments, and etc and vocals takes me away sometimesthey can get loud beyond your hear drum can take them.They are pricey I bought these 8 months ago for $ and they are still look like new.Overall I would recommend everyone to get Bose Ae2 headphones not for bass or recording use but for high quality and portable use, haven't had a problem yet.

                          The drawbacks are that the microphone and volume control are too close to the ear cup, the headphones doesn't fold in a particularly compact manner, and you have to partially depress the headphone plug for it to work with non-Apple products.

                          The sound quality is great and the microphone is sufficiently sensitive.

                          Right out of the box it does what it's supposed to. No bells or whissles. The design is very basic but well made and the headset fits well on your head. A built in mic always comes in handy. I don't manually control my music any more; I let Siri do it for me.Sound performance isn't mind or should I say ear blowing but it' s crisp and full. Great for watching movies and listening to soundtracks. No over the top basses with this headset.Overall a great value for money product and that alone is enough to recommend it.

                            Very comfortable with great clear mid-range sound. The lack of sound canceling doesn't make them ideal for listening in loud areas, but, absent that fact, they are really a treat to experience.

                            These headphones are really comfortable to sit and study with or while travelling long distances.

                            The long cord is really helpful when you are trying to move around without disconnecting the headphones. Even when you exceed the length of the cord the cord simply pulls out saving your head and the headphones from being damaged.

                            The in built mouth piece makes talking and listening extremely effective and comfortable.

                              These headphones sound pretty good. I'm sure that others sound better and worse. I bought these because I wanted a mic so that I could use them with my iPhone and answer calls. I think they are the best option for those who want a mic with their headphone.

                                This is a great pair of head phones. They stay in place and during winter time it helps to keep the ears warm. The sound quality is great. Even though they don't cancel sound external noise is not clearly heard so it's not a problem. My only issue although it's nothing serious is that the cord is too long for me. I'm barely 5.1' ft so the cord drags if I don't have it tied up. beyond that petty issue, there's nothing I dislike.

                                  These headphone have great sound and are quite comfortable to wear. They are not noise canceling, however they do reduce outside noise by a substantial amount.
                                  The headphones seem well made.
