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
  • Fold-flat, collapsible design allows easy storage in carrying case

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.

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.

UPDATE: Not long after my initial review, the wire began to short out near the terminal. I put the unit aside and just decided to use my other cans. Then last month I called Bose to see if they could be repaired. Turns out that the wire is detachable, so they sent me a new wire (for a few bucks). Up and running again. In addition, I had to send my IE2s in for replacement (for $50; they're beyond the warranty period). They had developed a rattle in the right ear piece. I enjoy these Bose products, but due to their light weight / comfort, they are somewhat fragile.

I got these mainly for air travel, because of their compact size. I have the big Bose over-ear noise cancelling headset, and it's wonderful, but it's just too clunky to take along on a trip in my briefcase. The OE2's are not noise cancelling, but they do filter out most of the ambient noise in an airplane cabin, and the sound quality for movies and music is outstanding. Great product for the price.

After 3-4 years of constant use, it is time to retire my Bose OE1's. They survived 8 cable replacements, dozens of drops and cord pullouts, stuffed in bags and worn around my neck. I definitely got my money's worth so I was thrilled to see a new model.

Most components of the OE2's appear to be 10% scaled down but otherwise the same sturdy plastic. The swivel hinge has been redesigned and is more robust. They now also "click" solidly into their open position and are significantly lighter; 3.4oz vs 4.6oz.

The cable jack has also been improved. The old model required a male-female cable and the free end hung down and brushed against my neck. On the new model, a male-male cord plugs directly into the earcup. This is more comfortable and also should make it cheaper to replace cables when they inevitably wear out from use.

However the most important factor is sound quality. I am not an audiophile and not very picky, but when switching from the old to the new model, I noticed the sound quality drop dramatically. It became muffled, like a placing a pillow over a speaker. On the same volume setting, the music is significantly quieter and "further away". Instruments blend together and sound muddy. Side by side, the new OE2 simply sound terrible.

When listening to audio-books, I even struggle to understand words that are perfectly clear on my OE1's. This is unacceptably bad on a $150 item. After 20+ hours of use it has not improved at all. It could be that they require a longer break-in period but the change would have to be extreme for them to approach the quality of the OE1's.

A new model should improve on the old. These improve in small ways on everything except what matters most; making your audio content sound clear and beautiful. I am very disappointed and I will likely be returning mine.

These are top of the line headphones. I NEVER write reviews on Amazon, but when I see negative reviews for this great product, I want to cringe.

The reason why people are getting "muffled" audio is one of two things: low quality source files, and a bad sound card.

How to fix this: I recommend at least a 320kbps quality on the audio files (you can enable this information on iTunes or just right click the song to see the "bit rate" or sometimes called the "sample rate"), and secondly, buy a simple USB audio card. I use the Turtle Beach Micro Advantage card which cost about $25...you just plug it into your USB port and attach your headphones...the difference is ASTOUNDING. I would compare it to putting jet fuel in a jet, and getting every single bit of power out of these great headphones.

Negative reviews of this product are simply ILL-INFORMED reviewers.

I purchased this headset for home use.

Compairison OE 2 and AE2
-----------------------------------

Both headsets are very light and comfortable to carry.
Both come with the same technical equipment regarding sound.
The sound is the same. I compared both in a Bose store in Hamburg (Germany).
The OE2 comes with a hard case to carry; the OE2 with a soft bag.
The OE2 sits on the ear the AE around the ear.

Personally I perfer the smaller size on ear; additionally I like the fact that the head set comes with a hard case. This protects the hardset while not in use.

The sound is a very personal judgement. I like the composition between bass and other tones. Silent passages are very clear and I recognize portions I did not recognize ase before. The bass is strong, but not overdriven. Even if the sound is louder its all still all clear sound.

For travelling I use a QC3: From the perspective of sound its very close. The difference is in the noice cancellation. The QC3 puts you in silent room while the OE2 does not. But usually its quite at home so the OE2 is fine. The QC3 is made for travellers; the OE2 for home use. Otherwise I feel both are very much equivalent.

I prefer the OE2 at home since there is no battery needed. Just use it. (The battery on the QC2 is a LiIon and long lasting, but when its time to change its not cheap.)
