Bose vs ultrasone - Page 2

post #16 of 25
For the record, I think Bose has a wider audience and reputation that Ultrasone. I think Bose is a little more hyped up that what they really are. It's been a long time since I've listened to a pair of Bose headphones, but I can't imagine them even being comparable to the high end flagship Ultrasones, such as one of the Signature's or Edition's. I don't really see the lower end of the spectrum - such as the 580's something to make assumptions about. Bose is a pretty cool company, but I think some people give them too much credit. They aren't designed to compete with company's that cater to audiophiles. They are just a good sound company.

Well, i would be fine with him saying bose are more comfortable. The problem is him saying that they sound 1000* better and everything else is inferior. Anyways, i think im starting to accept the fact that he wont change his mind. And dont even mention the higher end ultrasones, ill start drooling lol

Them sounding better is up for debate. if he says the sound 1000 times better, that is a lie.

Well to be fair, you can't debate someones opinion. Whether that is what he really thinks, we can't really be sure. If I had to guess, he is making it into a competition. Just enjoy yourself and politely disagree.

I will say that if I had to choose between one of the two I would take the bose.

And I agree Rem1x

Understandable really, the QC15's are actually some pretty decent sounding headphones, albeit way overpriced. You can't beat them for noise reduction either.

2 mins with a pair of my friends QC15 felt like someone was stabbing me in the ears. I'm actually not exaggerating by too much, because it really did hurt my ears like hell. I'm sensitive to a frequency that it was putting out and I didn't care to listen long enough to find out which one it was. All I know is, I rather have beats than a pair of bose.

Never heard of that before, either they were a dud pair or something else was wrong, you have superman-like hearing, or you are exxagerating beyersmile.png

It was during finals week and i was super stressed and running on caffeine but it was pretty painful to listen to. At that time I had the AKG K271 or K272 or what not. I just remember it was a MKII. I haven't put on a pair of Bose since so maybe it isn't a fair representation of the QC15 but just stating my experience with it.
