  • Dedication to research and excellence. It's been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. Since those early days, Bose engineers have kept their focus on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in Bose AE2 audio headphones. Immerse yourself in your music with the improved audio performance of Bose AE2 headphones. You'll hear smoother audio throughout the entire frequency range, from full lows to clear highs. AE2 headphones can enhance your listening at home and on the go from your favorite audio sources, including portable players and laptops. Sound and Comfort AE2 headphones, with enhanced, proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure, deliver sound reproduction that conventional headphones can't match. And improved ear cushions, in both design and materials, give you a more comfortable fit. In addition, the adjustable, cushioned headband has been redesigned to distribute weight more evenly across the top of the head. As a result, AE2 headphones can provide hours of comfortable listening. Convenience and Durability The earcups are angled for a comfortable fit. And they rotate to fold flat, allowing for easy storage and transport in the carry bag. The audio cable attaches on a single earcup for greater freedom of movement and less tangling, and detaches for convenient storage.

    "These headphones are great if you're wanting to mix with spatials in mind."
    Pros - Great clarity & space. Rich low mids.
    Cons - Bass is shy. Some frequencies in the high shelf are slightly neglected.
    I've been using the Bose AE2s for at least 3/4 a year now, & having made music on these headphones really invoked me to stereo/binaural mixing styles. I can always count on mixing a good pop, smack, or punch to percussion when using these headphones. One of the only main things about them is that the bass isn't as present as you would want it to be. Other than that, you've got a pair of cans that can really bring to front the high quality in music.

    "Actually very enjoyable"
    Pros - Clear & open sounding, unexpected deep bass notes, lightweight, comfortable, removable cable
    Cons - No bass punch, might lack body to the vocals for those who like warm headphones, poor isolation.
    Got a good local deal on these as the are being replaced by the SoundTrue variant, which as far as I can tell, only adds a case and different colors.
     
    The Bose AE2 are a very lightweight headphone with large and deep earcups that completely surround your ears with little pressure and are very comfortable.
     
    The voicing on these is like the fit, it is a clear and open sounding headphone, I think they gain this clear sound by slightly dropping the mids, the sound doesn't have the warm body of say my DJ orientated headphones like the V-Moda M100 or the AKG K267 or the tight and punchy bass with good texture. In fact first impression might be that these are bass light. But they do have some nice deep bass notes below 100hz, but around there and above there is little to no punch, kind of like the opposite of what you find with a Sennheiser Amperior. But it makes up for it by its enveloping soundstage and happy "live" sound feeling.
     
    I think they are great for home listening. For some outside portable use it might be okay, but you might find the bass lacking.

    "Highly comfortable, good design"
    Pros - Light weight, portable, changeable cable
    Cons - not very durable
    This was my first over the ear headphone - I always used smaller ones (earphones). I used this headphone for almost 2 years, and I was rather satisfied with it. 
     
    I found the sound quality good, but bass is a bit low compared to other brands - esp. Sennheiser's HD models. 
     
    Its design and comfort are the best attributes. It looks very good, it is a thin headphone, very easy to carry around. I used this at the office - sometimes all day (unfortunately I work with very noisy people :)) - and it never gave me  discomfort. 
     
    I always carried it within its pouch (it comes with a pouch), however, after 1.5 year the right ear started to go silent - if you hit it with your finger the sound would come back - but later it went completely silent. I must say, I was expecting a longer life from a Bose headphone.
