Decent sound from small, light-weight headphones, but at a high price Bose is known for two things: noise cancellation headphones, and getting better sound quality than one would expect for the size of the product. These are NOT noise cancelling headphones, so they are more about getting the sound quality one would expect from larger headphones.This is the second pair of Bose headphones that I have had. The other set is the Quiet Comfort 15. One of the less-than-desirable features of the Quiet Comfort 15 is that they cannot be used with the noise cancellation feature off. That means that the sound from the QC15 is always just slightly muted. Consequently, I actually prefer the OE2 if I don’t need noise cancellation. The QC15’s can reveal slightly more detail, and if they could be used with the noise cancellation off, then I would never even consider using the OE2’s. However, the slight muting effect of the noise cancellation is somewhat annoying when it isn’t necessary. It is necessary on planes, trains, etc., but in the quiet of my…

Good headphones, but in some ways inferior to the previous version of the product Just to be fair, this is a review and comparison between the current Bose OE2i product and their previous generation OE product. It’s the reason why I gave this product only 3 stars. If I was comparing it with many other headsets out there I would probably bump it up to at least 4 stars. I just want to make that clear.I was an original owner of a set of OE headphones that I bought not long after the initial launch in late 2006. From the moment of opening the package they were without a doubt the most impressive set of headphones I had ever owned. From the twisted cloth cords that originally shipped with them, to their feel while wearing them, to the incredible sound I got through them.Sadly after almost 5 and half years it was time to replace them. The wires going into the headphone itself were starting to fault. The problem wasn’t with the detachable cord (I’d replaced a few of those over the years) but with the short cord coming out of the headphone…

Slightly improved design. Hugely worsened sound. After 3-4 years of constant use, it is time to retire my Bose OE1’s. They survived 8 cable replacements, dozens of drops and cord pullouts, stuffed in bags and worn around my neck. I definitely got my money’s worth so I was thrilled to see a new model.Most components of the OE2’s appear to be 10% scaled down but otherwise the same sturdy plastic. The swivel hinge has been redesigned and is more robust. They now also “click” solidly into their open position and are significantly lighter; 3.4oz vs 4.6oz.The cable jack has also been improved. The old model required a male-female cable and the free end hung down and brushed against my neck. On the new model, a male-male cord plugs directly into the earcup. This is more comfortable and also should make it cheaper to replace cables when they inevitably wear out from use.However the most important factor is sound quality. I am not an audiophile and not very picky, but when switching from the old to the new…
