Product Highlights
  • Lightweight and Comfortable Design

  • Collapsible and Portable
  • Single-Sided Detachable Cable
  • Slim Carrying Case

The Bose OE2 On-Ear Audio Headphones (White) offer acclaimed Bose audio quality in an elegant, lightweight, on-ear design. The earcups feature soft memory foam padding for an incredibly comfortable fit that also helps to seal out external sound. The slim, padded headband allows up to 3" in adjustment to fit practically any head size.

Exclusive TriPort acoustic technology keeps the headphones small and lightweight while still providing faithful audio reproduction. Acoustic equalization fine-tunes the frequency response so you experience all of the subtle nuances of your music that you may have been missing with other headphones.

The headphones feature a collapsible design with fold-flat earcups for easy storage and portability with the included slim carrying case. Also included is a detachable single-sided cable. This provides flexibility, and the single-sided design is less prone to messy tangles than standard Y-cables.

The headphones feature a hologram label inside the headband, which provides a visual identifier and unique product code to signify that the headphones are a genuine Bose product. It also has security features that allow Bose to confirm product authenticity.

      I mean, they don't have the best of sounds, I have a pair of Shure in-ear phones that have better sound clarity, but again they are in-ear, not headphones, that might be it. But what you get in comfort might suppress that, I'm able to stay with them for 5, 6 hours straight without even noticing I have something clamped over my ears. And, at the end of the day, I don't think I can notice that much sound differentiation, it is just so clear and powerfull..

      They don't have noise cancelling, but it is up to you to decide if you want to pay double price o have this. for me that wasn't just that appealing.

      I normally don't write reviews, in fact I think this maybe my first. I'm driven by the fact of my disappointment with these headphones. For the last 4 years I've used a pair of Sennheiser PX-100, I have loved them to bits, the audio quality is great, they have lasted 4 years of wear (putting them on and off and storing in my bag at least twice a day on the train) with no cable problems. I thought it was time to upgrade, I did try these Bose headphone in the B&H shop and thought they sounded good, but after comparing against my old Sennheisers the music is slightly dull and doesn't feel as expansive or wide as my old headphones. Also wearing for more than 30 minutes causes the feeling that my ears need to escape under the pressure of these headphones.

      The positives are that the cables and headphones feel of great quality, the external sounds are very muffled (unfortunately I feel this effects the sounds from the headphones as well).

      I'm going to try some new Sennheisers once I get brave enough to venture out to the store again...

                    I bought these headphones after buying a pair for my wife because I liked hers so much. The sound is great. I will use them on upcoming trips and while listening to music on my way to bird watching and wildlife watching and photography trips.

                      I bought these headphones for my wife because we travel a lot and she wanted a good pair of headphones for her birthday. Once I got them I loved them and plan to get another for me. I borrowed them and listened to Pandora on a recent bird watching trip and wouldn't give them back to her.

                        I've given up on finding the perfect in-the-ear headset for travel. The OE2 headset folds up into a very compact and light package when not in use and is very light and comfortable to wear. Though they are not noise cancelling they really block out the outside world. The sound quality is excellent, with deep bass and crystal clear sounds.

                            I just got them, but I had their older brother. I love these one ear phones for shooting so they don't get in the way. If you're running audio you'll probably want some over the ear phones, but these are great when you have a camera on your shoulder and need something that doesn't get in the way.I like to keep one ear in the real world and these will stay on one ear easily (the over-ear ones tend to slide off). They sound great too I should add, but lots of headphones do. I'm sure some audiophiles might have a different opinion, and I'm sure you could buy more expensive headphones that sound better, but for the price, comfortability and sound quality they are great.My one con would be the old case was hard and better protected, however this case is smaller, so it's a trade off.

                              I use the headphones to transcribe recordings of meetings we have. The voices are clear and easily heard. I recomment these headphones highly.

                                  I mean, they don't have the best of sounds, I have a pair of Shure in-ear phones that have better sound clarity, but again they are in-ear, not headphones, that might be it. But what you get in comfort might suppress that, I'm able to stay with them for 5, 6 hours straight without even noticing I have something clamped over my ears. And, at the end of the day, I don't think I can notice that much sound differentiation, it is just so clear and powerfull..

                                  They don't have noise cancelling, but it is up to you to decide if you want to pay double price o have this. for me that wasn't just that appealing.

                                  I normally don't write reviews, in fact I think this maybe my first. I'm driven by the fact of my disappointment with these headphones. For the last 4 years I've used a pair of Sennheiser PX-100, I have loved them to bits, the audio quality is great, they have lasted 4 years of wear (putting them on and off and storing in my bag at least twice a day on the train) with no cable problems. I thought it was time to upgrade, I did try these Bose headphone in the B&H shop and thought they sounded good, but after comparing against my old Sennheisers the music is slightly dull and doesn't feel as expansive or wide as my old headphones. Also wearing for more than 30 minutes causes the feeling that my ears need to escape under the pressure of these headphones.

                                  The positives are that the cables and headphones feel of great quality, the external sounds are very muffled (unfortunately I feel this effects the sounds from the headphones as well).

                                  I'm going to try some new Sennheisers once I get brave enough to venture out to the store again...
