Bose® OE2 audio headphones - Black

Bose OE2 audio headphones - black
  • The next generation of Bose on-ear headphones
  • Advanced acoustic design brings out the depth and clarity of your music
  • Lighter, updated design features slim headband and memory foam ear cushions that reduce pressure points for hours of comfortable listening
  • Advanced design and durable materials ensure lasting quality

Bose OE2 headphones combine lifelike audio with lightweight comfort. They deliver the Bose sound you expect, but they are even smaller and lighter than our original on-ear headphones. You'll hear the full range of your favorite music, from deep lows to clear highs. The sleeker, slimmer design looks great too.

Big Performance, Small Size

OE2 headphones are lightweight and comfortable for hours of on-the-go listening.
OE2 headphones are lightweight and comfortable for hours of on-the-go listening.

OE2 headphones feature an enhanced TriPort® acoustic headphone structure, so you can experience big audio performance from these small earcups. TriPort technology delivers even the deep, low notes with clarity, letting you enjoy the full range of your music, movies or games.

The compact design offers a smaller, lighter and slimmer profile than our original on-ear headphones. Memory foam ear cushions conform to the shape of your ears, and the contoured headband sits evenly, without pressure points, on your head. They're so comfortable, you may forget you have them on - until someone tells you how sleek they look.

The detachable cable connects directly to one earcup, so there's less tangling than conventional Y-cables. And the headphones fold flat for storage in the protective carrying case.

Key Features

  • TriPort technology, available only from Bose, reproduces tonally balanced audio with deep low notes from lightweight, on-ear headphones.
  • Bose acoustic equalization fine-tunes the frequency response of the headphones for exceptional audio performance.
  • The headphones fold flat for storage in the zippered carrying case to protect them during travel.

  • Soft, cushioned earcups rest gently on your ears, providing a smooth, natural audio experience and a comfortable fit.
  • Fold flat earcups rotate into headband for increased portability and easy storage.
  • Adjustable headband allows approximately three inches of adjustment in length. Sturdy design features soft cushion for added comfort.
  • Detachable cable on a single earcup means less tangling and more convenient storage.
  • Slim carrying case stores and protects headphones and accessories during travel.
  • Hologram label provides a visual identifier and unique product code signifying the headphones are a genuine article from Bose. The hologram also has various security features that enable Bose to confirm the authenticity of the label.

Style Name: Without microphoneColor Name: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Bose is known for two things: noise cancellation headphones, and getting better sound quality than one would expect for the size of the product. These are NOT noise cancelling headphones, so they are more about getting the sound quality one would expect from larger headphones.

This is the second pair of Bose headphones that I have had. The other set is the Quiet Comfort 15. One of the less-than-desirable features of the Quiet Comfort 15 is that they cannot be used with the noise cancellation feature off. That means that the sound from the QC15 is always just slightly muted. Consequently, I actually prefer the OE2 if I don't need noise cancellation. The QC15's can reveal slightly more detail, and if they could be used with the noise cancellation off, then I would never even consider using the OE2's. However, the slight muting effect of the noise cancellation is somewhat annoying when it isn't necessary. It is necessary on planes, trains, etc., but in the quiet of my own home or office, I am more likely to reach for the OE2's than the QC15's.

So, let's talk about the sound quality itself. I find the sound to be roughly on par with my Sennheiser 448's. The Sennheisers allow me to hear a few subtle details that I cannot hear as well with the OE2's, but the OE2's have slightly better clarity in the vocals. Which matters more? That's personal taste. So, a couple of things to keep in mind. First, the Sennheisers are much cheaper. However, they are also much larger and heavier, as over-the-ear headphones generally are. The over-ear vs. on-ear issue is also a matter of taste. However, there is something to be said for how light-weight and comfortable the OE2's are. Remember, Bose is known for getting better sound than one would expect for the size of the speakers.

Style Name: With microphoneColor Name: Black Verified Purchase
Just to be fair, this is a review and comparison between the current Bose OE2i product and their previous generation OE product. It's the reason why I gave this product only 3 stars. If I was comparing it with many other headsets out there I would probably bump it up to at least 4 stars. I just want to make that clear.

I was an original owner of a set of OE headphones that I bought not long after the initial launch in late 2006. From the moment of opening the package they were without a doubt the most impressive set of headphones I had ever owned. From the twisted cloth cords that originally shipped with them, to their feel while wearing them, to the incredible sound I got through them.

Sadly after almost 5 and half years it was time to replace them. The wires going into the headphone itself were starting to fault. The problem wasn't with the detachable cord (I'd replaced a few of those over the years) but with the short cord coming out of the headphone and which contained the male jack for the detachable cord to be connected to. In other words nothing I could easily fix myself. They were getting trashed anyway, even the foam on the headband (as opposed to the earphones themselves) was starting to come apart.

Looking at the current offerings I decided to stick with what I liked and ordered the next generation OE2i headset.

From the moment I opened the box I started to notice little things about these in relation to the previous generation product.

1. As many have stated, they feel cheap and rather delicate to handle compared with their predecessor.

Style Name: Without microphoneColor Name: Black
I have several pairs of fairly high-end headphones (Beyerdynamic, Klipsch, Shure, etc.). The best of the bunch sounds fantastic but is a bit bulky. A more compact pair I have also sounds great but the on-ear design clamps quite a bit and becomes uncomfortable after a few minutes. Now, there is a lot of Bose bashing going on in the "audiophile" world, but after trying on a pair of these in a store I was intrigued. They were so damn light and comfortable. It's pretty hard to rate sound in a store, so I eventually took the plunge. After a LOT of comparing with my other sets, I can say that I'm greatly impressed by the sound coming from these. They may not be very durable (remains to be seen) but the comfort factor and the quite good sound quality sold me. It may be the "in thing" to bash Bose, but these little toys RULE. For serious analytical listening, I may pick up my other cans, but for watching movies and casual listening these can't be beat. I am bewildered by the negative reviews.

Style Name: Without microphoneColor Name: White
Before I get into my short review, I'd like to clear something up for those who keep comparing the OE2/OE2i's to its predecessor the original OE's. Unlike the original which was geared to be a bass-driven pair of headphones, the OE2's are focused towards realistic sound - that's right, something klipsch has been doing for years. It still has enough bass, but it is not overpowering or overbearing like that of the original OE (in which bose added "fake" bass into the set for bass lovers). It is not fair to compare the two because even in terms of design the OE2's were manufactured with the mindset of portability and so the nice plastic opposed to metal accents from the original OE's (which made the item heavier and bulkier mind you) was used.

Now that the confusion is out of the way, let's get on to the Pros & Cons of this device.

PROS:
- Really portable and folds into such a small case, you have to see it in person to realize how portable this is (youtube it to get an idea)
- Packs decent bass which will match the actual amount on a track (meaning if there's no bass in a track, then there will be done) and this leads to clear and crisp sounds.
- Highs are excellent and so are the lows.
- Mids are decent, but aren't sacrificed whatsoever.
- Did I mention how aesthetically pleasing the item is? Come on admit it, it's one of the reasons you're on this page.
- It's so comfortable thanks to the memory foam plus cushions that sometimes I forget it's on my head while listening to music.

CONS:
- Price-tag.
