Some excellent headphones
Lightweight, comfortable, great sound
A little spendy
-The Bottom Line-
These things have great sound and you can wear them for hours. Very impressive.
I got a pair of these headphones for Christmas and I must say I've been really happy with them. I wanted some lightweight headphones that I could take to work and use to block out all the noise around me. These things insulate me from the outside world really well (almost too well) and they offer very rich sound. I also like the fact that they are comfortable and I can wear them all day. My previous headphones which were some little Sony jobs that clipped onto my ears would just ache after a few hours. Perhaps it's because I wear glasses, but I've had difficult finding comfortable headphones that I can wear for several hours. My other pair of Sennheiser HD570 phones that I use at home have about the same quality of sound, but the Sennheiser ones are huge and I didn't want to wear them at work.
This is my first Bose product and I'm very impressed. I've always felt Bose was a lot of hype, but these little suckers live up to the hype. I highly recommend them. I've used them primarly for listening to MP3s on my portable NexII player and through my computer and I'm thrilled with them. I'm not a music or electronics snob, but I know what sounds good. :-)
