I would like to see someone review this headphone and give it a fair review. People seem to just give them an automatic negative review just due to the price and the Bose name. I'd like to see a review where they just completely ignore the price and who made them. Maybe it's wrong to do this. I'm willing to bet money that 75% of the people on here who hate Bose headphones have never actually tried them outside of a store demo. No, i'm not say they're good or bad.
These days, $150 isn't expensive for a headphone, as long as it sounds good and won't fall apart. The build quality on them looks bad, but at least they have a good warranty. I actually had some of the first Triports years ago and actually liked them a lot! I didn't have anything to compare them to though.
You'll hate me for this, but I later upgraded to some HD-555's and preferred my crappy Triports! I think it could be due to how I didn't have an amp at the time.
I bet if I tried the Triports now I may hate them. Who knows. I no longer have my Triports because they snapped twice due to normal use. Bose replaced them the first time without any questions.
I will say though that the Triports were some of the most comfortable headphones ever made for being that small.
