Awesome Headphones; Not for travel

Pros:Crisp/Clear Sound
Sleek Design 
Comfort 

Cons:Traveling
Durability

The Bottom Line: These headphones are great for the recreational listener.  They lack in the areas of travel and durability. 


I’ve had my Bose AE2 headphones for about a year now and I’ve loved them.  The sound is everything you would expect from Bose.  There are some downsides to having these headphones though.  If you’re like me, a frequent traveler; you will probably not like these. They do not travel well.  My headphones came with a small carrying bag and that was it.  They don’t collapse down into a smaller shape/size like I’ve seen in other models, but instead, they just rotate into a flat shape.  Also, the chord is detachable which is nice if you’re looking to store them somewhere, but you have to be careful to not lose the chord.  I usually end up just keeping the headphones around my neck walking through the airport because if you throw them in your bag, there’s a good chance they’ll break or snap.   One final thing about the durability is that the inner lining of the headphones falls off after a few months of wear.  By inner lining, I mean the inside portion of the headphone.  There is a fabric covering the electronics and actual speakers.  Mine fell off after about 3 months. 
            Beyond the bad durability and travel, the sound on these things is pretty nice.  If you’re someone who recreationally listens to soft music, then these are perfect.  I’ve noticed when listening to smooth R&B/pop songs or even movies, the sound is clear and crisp; even at high volumes. When you start getting into the heavy rock and rap, the sound starts to get raspy.  The bass is not that great either; in fact, it’s almost unnoticeable.  So if you’re going to be listening to smooth music like jazz or country, I would suggest these.  If you’re more heavy music like rock or heavy metal, then I would suggest another model of Bose. 
            Overall, these headphones are perfect for the recreational listener who doesn’t mind the troubles associated with transporting these things.  The sound is great and the price is nice too!
