OVERVIEW

Seamless Bluetooth switching.

The big advantages of wireless headphones are the freedom to move around and the convenience of not dealing with cables. Sometimes with wireless headphones, this has come at the expense of top sound quality. Bose SoundLink gives you deep, immersive sound at any volume, along with clearer calls at both ends of phone communications. They off seamless switching between two connected Bluetooth® devices, so you’ll never miss a call or a minute of that movie you’re watching.

Wholly apart from transporting, engaging sound quality, these versatile headphones are also designed to optimize your phone calls. An advanced microphone system with HD Voice and adaptive audio adjustment provides clear calls even in windy or noisy environments. And enhanced side-tone makes your voice sound more natural, as if you weren’t wearing headphones.

Drag-and-drop control
Connecting to Bluetooth devices and switching between them is easy, thanks to a free app called Bose® Connect. It handles all connecting and switching functions graphically. Just drag the headphones onto the device you want to use. It’s that simple. The app also provides software updates, product tips and even lets you personalize your settings.

Comfort and durability
The headphones are engineered for your busy life with impact-resistant materials, glass-filled nylon and corrosion-resistant stainless steel. With soft ear cushions and a contoured headband, they’re lighter and more comfortable than other comparable wireless headphones, so you can enjoy them all day long. When you’re done listening, you can fold them flat for storage in their compact matching case.

I've had these for over six months and I can't praise them enough so far. Excellent battery life and I love the quick charge for a couple hours of usage. I love the aux option also because I lost the little charging cable pretty quickly, but have found another charger I have fits them. Do a good job of closing out most noise when listening to louder stuff like pop or normal radio stuff. Ambiance music and meditation music still have outside sound leakage so I just plan accordingly since they technically aren't noise cancelling. Love the call feature though if I answer from the phone screen it requires switching to headphone audio since it picks the audio for how the call is answered I think. No biggie I just press the play button on the headphones to answer. I've been able to move about my living room and kitchen with not interruptions in signal when on Bluetooth with my iPhone. Randomly the audio will snag at times but it could Ben environmental or due to something with the phone because it never happens when on the cable connection. I don't think commentary is needed on Bose sound quality. It speaks for itself. Only thing that would improve it is noise cancelling which They have in other pairs. The new price is fantastic i just wish I had of known or I'd have waited the two months to buy them :'( would have been a STEAL of a deal then so if your thinking about it just do it lol they are a great indulgence especially if you listen to music a lot. I use mine at work and around campus. Sometimes they seem a little bulky and they aren't very breathable in regards to my ears but I can't be mad at that I wanted the around ear not on ear, because I find them comfort and can wear them longer, so naturally less heat is getting released from a natural heat release source. Though these are leather ear cups which seem to be great at helping create sweat. I wouldn't mind a lighter more breathable pair with the same sound quality. Overall an excellent purchase and we will likely get another pair of the newer ones at some point and I'll spring for the noise cancelling haha.

I bought these 2 weeks ago. The music quality is great. The headphones are light and I can wear them all day. There's more noise elimination than I expected, which is nice in a busy office. But unfortunately, using them with my Macbook Pro, I'm hearing skips in the audio every 10 to 20 seconds. It's worse as the office gets more crowded, leading me to think it's something about the number of bluetooth devices around. Oddly, when I walk away from my desk and laptop, it gets better. I'm still debating whether to return them. I love them, but other reviewers say there's no fix for this problem and other bluetooth headphones do not have the same problem.

Buy this headset

By DaddyZ

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

I have been looking for a wireless bluetooth headset for quite some time. This is an excellent unit as far as comfort, quality and sound isolation go. I didn't even think about the cell phone use but it was a really nice surprise. I wanted to use it with my iPhone for music but the phone call functions are great. I look forward to the day when Bose makes this unit with true noise cancelling but the over the ear pads block out a lot of noise, example: my diesel tractor. I use it with my iMac, iPad as well as my iPhone. Easy to link and great functionality.

Great Headphones

By adasirk

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

I am very happy with these SoundLink II Bluetooth headphones. The sound is wonderful. It is light weight and comfortable. Paired and work well with all of my devices. I had no issue paring with my iPhone. But had issue with my Windows 10 devices. After I've updated the Bluetooth drivers for Windows 10, the SoundLink II paired and worked flawlessly. I am very happy with my purchase, great quality product, great sound. Two thumbs up.

Made the right choice!

By Marcus

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

After deciding it was time to go "wireless" I narrowed down my options to three different Bluetooth headphones. One from Sony, JBL and one from Sennheiser. Managed to hear all three at my local big box retailer. After long hard thought I decided on the Sony. Was going to the checkout when my wife informed me there was another aisle with more headphones. That aisle was home to the Skull Crusher line and the Bose line. It was a no go on the Skull Crusher. I picked up the Bose SoundLink 2 over the ear and placed them on my head and was surprised at how light and comfortable they felt. After a brief adjustment I pushed the play button on the display. I was greeted by the music of Dave Brubeck. I listened to the whole song, took the headphones off and grabbed a box (the box was empty-you had to take it to the cashier to receive the item) and never looked back! These headphones are everything I was looking for. Light weight, super comfortable, pair flawlessly with all my devices and sound fantastic. They have a great look and good battery life. Great job Bose. Keep up the good work!!

Nothing Better!

By Hawk

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

Nothing personal Bose but the Soundlink II's are the best headphones on the market period. I've tried the QC35 and since I don't wear my headphones just for noise canceling, those are overkill. If you want excellent headphones that have a wide range and exceptional sound, the Soundlink is the ONE!

New and improved

By walkingsharks

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

I bought the on-ear soundlink headphones and had to return them due to discomfort. These, however, are the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn. The sound quality is also excellent. I hear things in my music I have never heard before. They have also been great for listening to podcasts and audiobooks. The noise isolation is great and I have never found them to lack loudness. They are a big investment but totally worth the cost.

Bose beats beats

By Dev

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

Bose are awesome. I am in middle school, and kids can be very judgemental, now most of the people reading this are adults and aren't always worried about fitting in, but I was. So I got beats, and shortly there after I found that not only were they build cheaply but the sound wasn't even that great. I then got these Bose Soundlink 2's and I don't care what kids think, I just want an awesome pair of headphones and these are perfect. They are well built and sound astounding. Bose are the best.

Best Bluetooth Headphones I own

By feason

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

Just received these, specifically the 2nd gen; not sure if the other reviews were for 1st gen or not. The headphones are amazing, crystal clear and expected Bose quality throughout. I own a pair of Harman Kardon Bluetooth headphones and am plagued by an audio delay when watching video (seconds out of sync), the *new* Bose do not have this issue and are in perfect sync with video. The best feature so far is the ability to seamlessly switch between 2 devices, very useful when switch from the iPad to the iTouch; both can be on and swapped effortlessly. The sound is incredible and the headphones are very comfortable, light weight but well made. The case is a nice extra as everything needed fits neatly inside and it is not bulky, very easy to remove and replace the headphones. Overall I am very impressed with the features/functions and will be looking forward to a long useful life for them

good but could be great not as compact

By imagebyu

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

Perfect fit but they took away how compact they can be I just wish that they fold up like the QC25 or the on the ear soundlink not as compact. When I'm out and don't have the storage case I can't just fold them up and put them in my pocket or bag like the QC25

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

I've only had these on a couple hours, so my remarks are based on this. I had the wireless 1svand to me the sound on the 2s are better. I'm listening to music on a kindle hdx and watched a tv show. Both sounded very good. With regards to distance you can be from the source is father than the 1s....and that alone was reason enough for me to switch.

Great sound, bluetooth is so easy to set up!

By AndyP

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones:

I bought these headphones a few weeks ago after doing extensive research on great bluetooth headphones. While Beats Studio Wireless and Bose SoundsLink are neck and neck in most ratings, Bose is the clear winner on 3 of the most important factors; quality of construction, balanced sound and customer service! First - The basic around the ear headphone construction of Bose Headphones hasn't changed over the years and there is a reason for that - they are built to last. I still have my QuietComfort 2 headphones from 2006. Back then the headphones came with a CD player! The point is those headphones look brand new and I have used them when mowing the lawn, snowplowing the driveway - you name it. They have been run through the mill and they are strong. The only thing I replaced is the soft ear cups on the Qc2 and the headphone cord so I could control volume (didn't have that integration in 2006). Bose products are built to last - they understand that you are purchasing their products for life (your life). So ordering new ear pads is expected and simple to do! Great customer service should always be simple. So when I received my SoundLink headphones, I notices the same strong construction and immediately knew I made the right purchase. Yes, they are lighter and more stylish but the same design elements are there. Now let's get to the bluetooth set up. This is so easy for the simple fact that the headphones speak to you to tell you when you are connected. Once they are set up you just push the switch upward to toggle between devices - that's it! Here's the best part, if you have two phones connected like I do, the headphones will automatically connect to the phone with the call coming in. For example, I was listening to music on phone 1 when a call came in on phone 2. The headphones stopped the music (phone 1) and then announced a call was coming in on phone 2 so I answered it. When the call ended, the headphones announced "call ended" and then switched back to the music on phone 1 - all automatically. The quality of phone calls is wild - they have found a way to combine the sounds of the environment you are in (walking down the street, etc.) while you are talking so you speak naturally and don't strain. I can't explain it but it works to perfection. Finally to the sound. Bose is known for balanced sound. These headphones deliver, a great natural sound - they won't make your ear drums bleed but they hit all the lows and highs. They are not for the bass heads but if you listen to a diverse range of music, balanced sound is what you want. Let me end with this. These are not active noise cancelling but don't get fooled by Beats offering that feature. Over the ear phones are great for noise cancelling and unless you are working on the runway of an airport you will be fine. Take it from someone that did vast amounts of research on this subject and then reached the smartest conclusion - go with the brand that has the world's best reputation for creating big sounds in small packages - Bose. PS - if you live in a cold weather state these headphones are the best substitute for ear muffs!
