Great sound quality easy on the ears

published

Great sounding, easy on your ears. There are a lot of choices for earphones and I did my homework. Back in the day Bose were miles ahead on their speaker technology, but these days there are so many to choose from. I went with the sound sports as they have a selection of ear fittings and so easy and comfortable to use. The sound and battery life is great as well.

Purchased in at JB Hifi Home for $224.

One terrible fatal (deafening) flaw

published

Fits well, sound is good, battery lasts, all that- had them for a year or two now with frequent use. But built-in alerts (like low battery) are deafeningly loud. Bose's downloadable app fixes designed to solve this don't stick. It's horrible on quiet nights or when you are deep in focus or study.I don't know how many times I've been falling asleep when the chimes clang me awake to tell me the battery is low. (The same is true but only irritating for when you change volume. ) I reckoned that writing a review was the most productive thing to do now that I'm awake tonight. Next time I'll smash them and try to forget that my fiancee did a lot of research and paid quite a bit trying to find a gift that would help me sleep.

No issue. great headphones

published

I use this to listen to music while I go running in the morning or while I exercise in the house. I have a bout 3 sets of headphones that I use. this is probably my second favorite since it runs for a long time and sound quality is not that bad. Great for conversing over the phone as well.

Build quality is rubbish

published

Headphones themselves are good. Nice sound, comfy. But after about a year they just turn to rubbish. Sound goes very quiet, left ear piece doesn't work anymore. Happened twice now.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT

published

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT if you want something that actually works for an athlete performing reasonably vigorous exercise. The problems are multiple and include:
Doesn't stay in your ear and falls out all the time
Bluetooth connecting is weak and may take multiple attempts
Only plays music without gaps if the source is on your right and not left wrist.

Good sound and comfort

published

I listen to music and podcasts using these headphones while exercising as well as take phone calls.

They are comfortable to use and suitable for walking. Not sure about other sports as I’ve only used for this.

Sound volume is no issue. Battery life is ok so far. But the product is new.

Bluetooth connection is great. I left my phone in the bathroom ensuite and was on a phone call when I went out to the car. Did not know I left my phone in the house and forgot I had the headphones in (thinking the phone connected to Bluetooth in the car) and wasn’t until the phone call cut out that I realised I left the phone in the house hahaha. Oops.

Purchased in at Bose for $149.

Wouldn’t buy again

published

After 1 year the earphones started turning on by themselves and draining the battery completely. Bose would not replace them so I would not recommend spending over $200 on this item

Almost perfect

published

Build and sound quality are as expected. High end. Solid. Touch controls are not ideal. You can add ‘shortcut’ to skip music forward but not able to go back also.

Purchased in at Myer for $250.

Makes irritating noises when bluetooth dis/connects, phone connection/hangup and other occasions.

published

Hate the irritating noises which can be quite loud at times and according to Bose cannot be turned off. Otherwise the product seems to be good and sound quality is great.

Sound good, but poor battery life and signal clips

published

Headphones were bought on sale at JB HiFi.

The good: 1. Sound quality is quite good.
2. Fit is comfortable and rarely falls out.

The Bad: 1. Battery life is terrible. Will drain while sitting idle and very rarely have 100%
2. Signal clips (temporary loss of signal) from any device I own. Have tried on several laptops and
phones, but always seem to get the same result. For the price, the bluetooth software could be a
lot better.

Loove them

published

I cannot live without these. Mine were super good. Sound quality is just amazing! My last set lasted 3.2 or so years befor giving upon me (only because I treated them anyhow tbh. Treated better they could have lasted longer) Needless to say, im replacing them with an exact replica because i would hate to be dissapointed by anything else

Purchased in at Bose for $300.

To be or not to be

published

I listen to a variety of music, and have high quality listening devices in my office and other headphones i use for quality sound. I bought these knowing Bose mix bass heavy for perceived quality, fine with me as these were to be my workout headphones.

The battery is excellent.
The sound is good for what you pay. Not particularly honest but a good mix across the range.

But...
The build quality is simply horrendous for what you pay.
The Bose logos fell off within 6 months what ever didn't bother me but now the rest of it is starting to fall apart.

If you want something to last a few years then just don't buy them it's not worth it. Has put me off any of their higher end products for sure.
