From the Manufacturer

Bose® On-Ear audio headphones

Bose On-Ear Headphones
  • Bose® audio performance in a comfortable, new, on-ear headphone design
  • Proprietary Bose headphone technologies deliver clean, rich sound
  • Lifelike clarity and range remarkable for headphones this size
  • Fold-flat earcups and collapsible headband for on-the-go convenience
  • Lightweight fit; single-earcup cable; slim, protective case included

New Bose on-ear headphones deliver clean, rich sound in a small, light, on-ear design. Just slip them on and enjoy high-performance audio--engineered exclusively by Bose.

You'll hear deep lows. Clear mids. Sweet highs. Distinct separation of instruments. Try them with your favorite tracks and you just may discover subtleties you never heard before.

Comfortable on-ear design

You may also find yourself forgetting you have them on. Bose on-ear headphones weigh less than five ounces. Their earcups are softly padded with memory foam that gently conforms to the shape of your ears. And they're designed to rotate from front-to-back and top-to-bottom--for an enhanced fit that reduces pressure points. You can wear them comfortably for hours on end.

Bose on-ear headphones feature proprietary Bose technologies that produce high-quality audio in this compact on-ear design. The unique TriPort® acoustic headphone structure provides excellent low-frequency output and helps create a wide range of audio from such small, lightweight earcups. There's no need to push buttons or adjust knobs, and no batteries are required. You just plug in and experience full-bodied, well-balanced audio that brings out the details in your music.

These headphones make great commuting partners. They include two detachable audio cables of different lengths. Use the shorter 16-inch cable with armband or shirt-pocket connections, or link it to the standard 43-inch cable when you need added reach. Both cables attach to just one earcup, so there's less tangling than with conventional Y-cables. Bose on-ear headphones also feature a collapsible headband and fold-flat earcups. A protective carrying case is included with purchase. One year limited warranty on parts an labor.

Comfortable on-ear design
Fold flat earcups rotate into headband for increased portability and easy storage.

  • Detachable audio cables (43" and 16") on a single earcup provide added convenience. Cables attach to just one earcup for less tangling than with Y-cables. Use the shorter cable with portable players on armbands or in shirt pockets. Link the cables together for added reach.

I recently got a pair of these from a local retail store for $100. A good family friend who worked there was able to acquire a discount. First, I will say that they are fantastic and lived up to everything I was hoping for. I'm a college student who not only lives with a roommate but also in a ground floor apartment. Before I had these, I used a pair of Memorex Noise Canceling headphones and even they were unable to completely ward off the sounds my roommate or neighbors would make; be it movie watching, DanceDance Revolution, or the occasional domestic violence. However, with my new Bose On-ear headphones I am able to listen to music or movies at a moderate and comfortable volume level while drowning out ambient noise. Peace and solitude are once again part of my life.

Quality. For months I tested these headphones on display at various stores and was astounded by the audio quality. The first thing I realized after buying them is that you can have the best set of headphones in the world but if your music isn't CD quality or better, it wont make a darn bit of difference. CD's, movies and MP3's 192kbps or more come through with amazing quality and clarity. I truly do find myself discovering nuances in my favorite songs which I had never heard before.

Comfort. I chose the on-ear headphones as opposed to the over the ear because I was worried about heat and extensive wear times. The on ear headphones still leave my ears a little warm and use for extended times (2+ Hours) leads to mild discomfort and the need to shift them around a little bit. Overall, I rate comfort a 4/5. Still better than any other headphones I've worn.

Durability. Admittedly, I did fall asleep wearing them once on the sofa.

Bose products usually have a bad rap here on the internet, especially from bloggers. Its the same kind of dislike for Bose products that alot of people also have for Apple products.

These headphones are lightweight, comfortable and very compact. Bose's staple is BIG sound out of small packages and in the case of these OE's they fit the bill well. Like with any good set of cans burn in is necessary to get the best sound. At first you may not be able to tell these cans from any other ones. But after 10 hours of burn in you will start to notice the great sound quality of these headphones. After 20 hours of burn in, you will realize why these mighty little headphones also have a mighty price tag.... They are worth it!

One thing that sets alot of Bose headphones apart from the competition is the bass and these cans are no exception. The OE's have great thumping bass, but unlike other headphones like the Beats by Dre for example, the bass doesnt come at the expense of the mids and highs. All are represented well here.

The one downside to some may be that the OE's arent noise canceling headphones. But thats not to say the comfy padding doesnt keep out some sound. But these cans are perfect for me as a parent because I need to hear at least a little of whats going on around me :)

These headphones have a sound like they are physically bigger than they really are, but at such a compact size and light weight, it makes them a must buy!

I bought a pair of Bose On-Ear headphones in mid-2009. Within six weeks the left earpiece no longer produced sound. The headphones had to be returned to Bose for warranty service. Eight weeks later I received a replacement pair that I have now been using for four months. Now the right earpiece is no longer producing sound.

I guess I'll call Bose warranty service again and hope for another replacement pair.

UPDATE: Bose replaced my headphones without any hassles. They have excellent customer service. The new headphones work great. They definitely stand behind their products.

I had purchased these after I had found out that they just came out. My Bose Triport headphones were in a gawdy state of being hideous to wear and I needed something new. The previous headphones were still in tip-top sounding shape, but the design...although light and comfortable, I had accidently broken the head strap on both I had to deal with using duct tape and electrical tape to mend them back together...I finally had enough of it and decided to purchase these and I had always expected the best from Bose. And as always, they impress me everytime.

I'm a high audiophile guy, a musician and a composer on the side, so I needed something that was at a reasonable price but produced incredible sonic sound. So what better company to pick than Bose? I've been buying their stuff since my first Bose 301 IV bookshelf speakers and every product they've come out have always impressed me. These headphones were everything I could had imagined. They carry out the low bass tones with ease and create those realistic highs without sacrificing frequencies. The company always noted that it created bass without the use of a bass boost on most cd and mp3 players....I never really thought so and never tried it out with my other heaphones...I love bass, who doesn't? But I decided to give it a whirl on these and to my astonishment they weren't lying. I have my iTunes EQ band setup where it's mostly focused on boosting the trebles which, in my preference, makes everything sound much better.

People always complain about the price of these products...and yeah, for 200 bucks for a pair of headphones sounds really crazy, but it really comes down to whether you want incredible sound or just decent/can-get-away-with sound. Plus it's Bose...
