New Head-Fier
Feb 6, 2014
Hello again, 
I have two options and the most important goal is a clear sound that I can hear each instruments sound. I wanna start to compose and mix with my new MIDI controller. It should be mentioned that you can not have live performance with MIDI signal while using Bluetooth headphone.

Bose Quietcomfort 2:
used but the same sound quality with the new ones as I brought them to one of Bose stores, and also with new leather. 
75 euro

AKG 845bt:
90 euro
superiority of Bose:
- the sound has more bass (well for enjoying the music it will be an advantage but in general for composing and monitoring I don't know)
- more comfortable and light
- more beautiful
- the wire is longer while using the midi controller as it is not possible to use BT. 
- not that different from Bose Quietcomfort 15, and I guess as it is in the same price as AKG (300euro) definitely for AKG some amount of the price is for the Bluetooth and not the sound quality
superiority of AKG:
- it has Bluetooth so no need to be worried about the wires (yet I have to use the wire for my MIDI controller which is quiet short)
- it is new (although the owner of Bose is my friend and is reliable) 
- less bass sound and beats but probably more natural(?)
The most important fact for me is the sound quality and I guess I am not able to distinguish between them as I am not professional in sound engineering and etc. So far as a beginner the Bose one brings more excitement by its stronger bass (my friends also confirm) but I would like a confirmation from specialists. 

Thank you so much.
