Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II Review

Pros: * Good build, * Comfortable, * Great sound quality, * Wireless with NFC, * Good battery life
Cons: * Pricey, * Bass could use more power
Verdict: A couple of years ago, we reviewed the Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth – a wireless headphone capable of producing great sounds in a small package. Now imagine that in a bigger body with upgraded audio technology. Well, that's what we think of the Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II .

Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II

Pros: The SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphone II is very comfortable to wear, sounds excellent for a Bluetooth headphone, and offers good battery life (15 hours). It also works well as a headset for phone calls, its buttons are easy to operate by feel, and a nice carrying case is included
Cons: Somewhat expensive; not the best option for those who like their music loud and bass-heavy
Verdict: What's the best-sounding wireless headphone available today? That's a tough question to answer, but Bose is staking its claim on the title with its new SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphone II, which comes in black or white for $280, £240 or AU$379.

Bose SoundLink Around-Ear II

Pros: Solid audio performance with rich bass and bright highs. Incredibly comfortable. Includes a cable for passive, wired listening. Multipoint functionality allows you to pair two devices at once
Cons: DSP sculpts audio-not for purists. Cable lacks inline remote control
Verdict: Bose may be king of the mountain when it comes to noise-canceling headphones, but the company has yet to extend the unrivaled success of its QuietComfort line into the wireless headphone realm.

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II

Verdict: Bose's latest Bluetooth speaker, SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II ($300-$350) is an updated edition of its 2011 SoundLink Wireless Mobile Speaker. As is often the case when Bose comes out with a new product in the same family, you'll be hard-pressed to find any major physical differences from...

Bose SoundLink II Mobile Bluetooth Speaker Review

Verdict: The Bose SoundLink II mobile Bluetooth speaker sounds very good, is extremely easy to use and feels substantial with quality buttons. We tested the unit with the black finish and dark nylon gray cover. It's an elegant design that is rugged enough to pack in a suitcase for trips.

Nice product but not for TV use

Verdict: Purchased mainly for connection to a new LG OLED and for conference calls at work. Sadly although connectivity and audio quality was fine, the excessive audio lag on TV use was unacceptable. Conference calls via PC didn't work well at all, other attendees complained about very muffled audio.

These are a great product so far.

Verdict: These where a present for my partner that she only just got for Christmas so I can't speak for battery life or durability. However the sound quality is amazing, they look great on her and so far a few hours listening has not put a dent in the battery so they seem a great product.

Verdict: These are amazing! I have been wanting wireless headphones for quite some time. I own at least ten Bose products, so choosing Bose for my wireless headphones was easy. I decided to purchase from HSN because they had white, which is the color I wanted, and an easy payment plan. These sound amazing!

Good sound but way overpriced

Verdict: I was expecting better from headphones that cost $230 but was simply not impressed. My 10 year old monster ear buds sounded almost as good. The Bose headphones are also pretty warm. I could not see wearing these during the summer or during a workout. The sound and functionality is good.

Decent Sound / Marginal Value

Verdict: First I tried the $160 Bose on-ear headphones. Really disappointing with the sound quality of those. Returned and got these for $200. Better sound, more comfortable, but still not the dynamic range and response I was looking for.

Some of the beat Bluetooth headphones I've ever...

Verdict: Tried the Sony MDR1000X and it sounded a lot less refined vs the Soundlink. The QC35's bass is out of control. This headphone still puts an emphasis on the low end and tho I prefer a neutral can, I found myself not wanting to take these off and POOF, there went four hours.

Nice lightweight headphones

Verdict: Initially I was a little underwhelmed when compared to the pair of headphones I already had. However, upon further use I realized they do in fact sound very good. The battery life is great, and I love how light-weight they are.

If you wear glasses, make sure to try these on in a store first

Pros: - easy to connect to devices - sound is balanced and clear
Cons: - immediately noticed discomfort behind the ears because I wear glasses - the foam cups go behind the ears and press up against the end of the temples of my glasses
Verdict: returned these because of the discomfort, but I could 'hear' why the reviews are otherwise so good for these headphones.

Recommended Bluetooth headphone

Verdict: Had a wired SOL, and finally got tired of the wires. Got this Headphone (Bose) and what a difference it made. Comfy, good bass and without any sound call distortion that I wanted most for those long phone calls. This is a keeper. For those that love music and calls, this unit is very good
