Bose sound. To go
With Bose technology, you dont have to compromise the quality of your audio just because youre listening through a pair of headphones. Our acoustic equalization techniques deliver the rich nuances of your music that conventional headphones often lose. You hear the intricate notes of an acoustic guitar, the full range of vocals and even the beat of a drum with greater clarity and impact. TriPort® headphone technology faithfully reproduces deep, full low notes without requiring the artificial bass boost function found on many portable players.
Comfortable fit included
Advanced ergonomics and lightweight design define the stylish TriPort headphones. Soft ear cushions gently fit around your ear for comfortable listening. A thin, adjustable headband has several head size settings and the earcups swivel for a better fit. An additional benefit of Bose TriPort headphone technology is that it helps reduce headphone size without sacrificing performance, resulting in a total weight of only five ounces.
TriPort headphones put it all together: high-performance sound, comfortable fit and stylish design in one affordable audio experience.
What's in the box
1 pair of headphones, Extension cord, 1/4" stereo phone adapter, 1 headphone plug, Drawstring carry bag.

The bose like I said have only ok sound, and not nearly good enough to spend 150 dollars on. You may go to Best Buy and hear these and say "Wow these sound great", but thats probably after you have had ipod, cd player, and other mp3 players stock buds that came with them. Trust me...Dont buy these.
It was hard to go and purchase these. So many people think BOSE makes junk and just believe what they hear and just keep spreading it around. Go out and try the products for yourself first. I almost skipped them because I almost wanted to believe BOSE made stuff that wasn't any good.
Anyway, I tried these and they brought new life to my music. Everything sounded so much better than my Sony Fontopia headphones. Such an amazing difference. I also quite frequently prefer using these headphones with my ONKYO receiver to watch DTS movies. This is over $1000 home theater speakers.
Now onto the bad news. Yes, they ARE fragile. Very fragile. Within 4 months the plastic piece holding the ear piece broke and now if I want to listen to them I have to hold them up to my head like one of those old telephones. Ok, I don't do that, but I was so dissappointed all day. Not only that but I lost my receipt and couldn't return them or get a replacement. I was wrong. The nice people at BOSE let me send them back for a replacement. That's good service! No phone calls, no waiting on hold. All done by email in a matter of days.
Stupid me thought I couldn't get a replacement so I went out and got some Sennheiser HD 580's for a little bit more. I was expecting them to be blown away by them but they were honestly just a tad better to my ears and are built MUCH better.Read more ›
The best thing to do for people on a $100-150 budget for quality headphones is to shop around, and defintiely to check out forums like Head-Fi.org where users share their views.
The Triport's tendency to break is well known, leaving them little more that expensive bolos.
If it cost $40, it may be a decent deal, but I wouldn't buy it. I'd either get the Sennheiser hd-280 for $90 or the $30 koss ksc-35, both are better deals and sound much better IMO.
For under $150 there are many better headphones:
AKG K240s-55 / K501
Sennheiser HD201, HD580, HD100, HD280
Shure e2c / e3c
Sony MDRV6, MDR-7506
