After trying out the Solo Beats by Dre, I found them to be extremely to bassey (if that's even a word) and too tight fitting for my particular taste. I returned them in less that 10 days. I recently purchased the Bose AE2i because I've just been dying for a new pair of headphones that I could use at home, on trips and that works with my iphone.

The price of these headphones is AMAZING! Not to expensive for the quality and control talk feature.
They are extremely light weight providing hours of comfort! Although I would prefer the cord to come out of the right ear, just because I'm accustomed to the mic being on the right side (apple ear buds), I do enjoy the feel of one cord.
These headphones sound great with all genres of music and although not totally cancelling, not very much outside noise gets in and disrupts your music.

I would def. recommend these if you are looking for a decent pair of headphones that are light weight and sound great with all types of music.

The Bose AE2i's sound like how I feel most Bose products do: nice clear sound, well balanced and a bit on the soft side. This makes them great for listening to pretty much ever genre of music but you're not going to get any real punch out of this headset which can be nice with bass heavy music (dance, electronic, etc). Still they're great for listening to that stuff if you favor balance over bass.

The set is extremely comfortable on my relatively large ears with plenty of breathing space inside each cup. Plus they're light and have a fairly slim profile of over-ears. The detachable cable is a nice touch which will hopefully extend their use lifetime. The jack that goes into the headphones is a bit strangely shaped but looks to be replaceable (inline control ones are $30 on the Bose site while normal ones are $7, might even be able to get away with a cheaper replacement/monitoring cable from third parties).

I removed a star because if I get one more headphone drawstring bag, I'm going to burn it outright. A bag is a nice way to tote around the headphones but provides next to no protection. I feel its much safer to simply carry them on my neck. I wish these came with a clamshell zipper case like the OEs (which I now wish I had been able to compare them to). Still I'm quite happy with these so far after three days use. Considering to size to sound quality I'd say they're just worth the price with that Bose premium. You can definitely find specialized headphones for less (fashion, bass, etc) but a well balanced comfortable set with a replaceable cable in the sub $200 range it would be difficult to match.

No, I don't work for Bose, I just love these headphones. Although, I am usually pretty tough to please. I bought these from a Bose store, but they are $19+tax cheaper currently on Amazon. To review:

PROS:
- Comfort all the way around, most comfortable on ear headphones I've tried
- Sound quality is spot on Bose, these headphones uphold the respected brand name
- iPod/iPhone adapter works seamlessly, call quality is better than using the phone itself, buttons are raised in the right places to make it even easier to find the controls without looking than on the Apple earbuds themselves
- Naturally block outside noise, so while they are not noise cancelling, they do block out a reasonable amount on their own (EX: I have the music at moderate volume and hardly hear my own keystrokes)
- Cord only attaches to one earbud and easily detachable, connection is firm and snug
- Included carrying case

CONS:
- Minor concern, but the cord is on the left earbud so if you are used to adjusting your music on the right side with your Apple earbuds you will just have to get used to doing it on the left side
- Earbuds are so soft sometimes unintentional impressions are left on the pad (purely a cosmetic "complaint")

THE BOTTOM LINE:
These are some of the best headphones without noise cancelling tech that money can buy, the Apple integration is seamless and, in some cases, is better than Apple's original design. This is a worry free buy.

I purchased the headphones from the bose website within a couple weeks of them coming out. I have had Bose headphones before, but not for a couple years. The sound quality is excellent, and they are light weight and comfortable for me to use while i work for 9 hours a day. The ONLY issue that I have had, is that with less than a months worth of use, the cord right where it comes out of the iphone is starting to become disconnected. While this could be attributed to a quality problem, more likely it is my fault. At least ten times while standing up I have ripped the cord out of the headphones (its built to disconnect)and this probably put an undue amount of stress on the connection. However, once I noticed this happening, I called up Bose, and after waiting on hold for less than 2 mintues, and without a series of annoying automated questions, I was speaking to a live representative who got a new cord shipped out to me free of charge, BEFORE I sent mine back. Im used to aweful customer service that forces me to send in the defective product and sit on my hands waiting for a replacement to arrive. Not with Bose! I'm definitely satisfied with the quality and service, and I will be buying Bose products again in the future!
