Bose SoundTrue Around Ear Charcoal Black Headphones II - STAEIICHARCOALAPL

Presenting the around-ear headphones that focus your music inward while proclaiming your style to the world. SoundTrue headphones II bring your music to life with depth and clarity that many headphones can’t deliver. And they’re redesigned with a slimmer profile and fresh, new colors. Featuring a softly padded headband and memory foam to cushion around your ears, they’re so light and comfortable you just might forget you’re wearing them. Yet they’re durable enough to survive your busy life, and include a matching carrying case.

Key Features:

  • Music sounds deep, clear and lifelike thanks to proprietary Bose® technologies
  • Redesigned with a slimmer profile and fresh, new colors
  • Softly padded headband, memory-foam cushions for long-term comfort
  • Fold-flat earcups, matching carrying case for easy travel
  • Inline microphone and remote for easy switching between calls and music with most Samsung Galaxy and select Android™ phones

Features:

  • Engaging Sound
    SoundTrue headphones II are engineered with advanced Bose technologies that ensure your music sounds deep, clear and full of life. If you really like losing yourself in your music, these headphones are designed with you in mind.
  • Lasting Comfort
    Others will have no problem noticing your headphones with their bold, updated designs. But you may forget you’re wearing them entirely. That’s because they feature a softly padded headband that distributes weight evenly across your head, and memory foam that creates a gentle cushion around your ears. So they stay light and comfortable, even during epic playlists.
  • A Case for Convenience
    The audio cable attaches to a single earcup for greater freedom of movement and less tangling. It also detaches for storage. The earcups conveniently fold flat and the headband is collapsible to fit neatly into the included carrying case.
  • In Tune and in Touch
    If you’re listening to music on your phone, sooner or later someone’s going to call. No problem. Take it (or ignore it) with one button on the inline mic/remote. Your music will wait. The remote also provides music control and more for select iPod, iPhone and iPad models.

Sound Quality: The sound quality of these headphones is the best that I have ever heard by far. They are the best way to go if you are considering any around-ear headphones. Sound goes loud if you prefer and the quality does not get any lower the louder you go. Soft music with the noise canceling was absolutely incredible and really removes you from the world and focused in. Comfort: When wearing these, they do not feel bulky at all and move with you. They do not feel like they are about to fall out at all. Very soft on the inside of the ear and comfortable to wear anywhere. Noise Canceling: When the Noise Canceling is on, It is simply the best out there. I have tried others but they do not even compare at all to these. Adding music makes it the best experience I've ever had when wearing these headphones. Best Overall: My favorite features of these headphones was the noise canceling and the music as well. Sound quality is amazing and they are also easy for storage and protection. Very happy customer.

I'd had the original Bose Around Ear headphones for about 8 years and absolutely loved them. Unfortunately, I ended up losing them in my recent trip to Europe - left them on a plane (at least I know some Spanish airline worker can listen to music properly). Anyways, I had to upgrade and decided to go with the all black around-ear SoundTrue II. First of all, I absolutely love the all black design. In addition, these headphones are drastically more comfortable than my previous Around Ear's. However, the sound quality is completely different; AVERAGE. I was skeptical after listening for a week to songs that I had recently heard on my old AEs, and noticing some differences. It became evident when I decided to do a test with my sister's AE2's and my new SoundTrue II's. Listening to the exact same song on my laptop and switching headphones at multiple points in the song, I noticed that my fear had been realized, the SoundTrue's were much worse. Going from the AE2's to the ST2's, it seemed like the volume on my computer had dropped at least 40%! As a loyal Bose customer (and especially anti-Beats!), this baffled me. How could the latest and "greatest" sound worse than a 4 year old headphone?! Unfortunately I still do not have that answer, but have some theories. Thus, I am extremely disappointed and will be returning my SoundTrue II's. Form needs to follow function, always. That was my biggest critic about Beats and the biggest reason I championed Bose. Thank goodness I discovered this sooner than later; I wouldn't want to be seen as a hypocrite. Such a shame.

Awful

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around Ear Charcoal Black Headphones II:

I truly can't stand these headphones. I've used them a fairly normal amount and through this use they've constantly fallen apart, and the left half had just blown out. They are also bulky and fairly unpractical.

Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around Ear Charcoal Black Headphones II:

As a serious Bose fan, I bought a new pair of the SoundTrue II Headphones. I really did not need them, but I thought to myself...........These are Bose ! How can I go wrong ? I didn't go wrong ! I loved them ! Took them with me on a cross country road trip with some friends. When I wasn't driving, I was jamming out ! A few of the guys decided they wanted to check out my headphones. They fell in love with them ! So, on our trip 3 extra sets of headphones were bought ! The only way I see it is that I will always stay with Bose for my music listening needs ! Thank You for an excellent product !

        Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around Ear Charcoal Black Headphones II:

        Just got my new headphones and they are blowing my mind. Design is pretty good, not too fancy nor cheap, just on point. Battery saving on my iPhone is great, and the sound quality is unbelievable, just as you would expect from a Bose product. Only thing I would change is the cord length which is a little too long. I've read some reviews regarding the volume, in my opinion these headphones are perfect. Some people may like something louder but that would just damage your hearing.

        Comments about Bose SoundTrue Around Ear Charcoal Black Headphones II:

        Once in a while I was in love with Triport products. Bose headphones really live up to their names in around 2007 and such when they churn out three revolutionary products called Triport OE, Triport IE and Triport AE. Being the largest of the three allows AE to have unprecedented bass response and such, but it's not the case for BOSE. Among the original product line aka the first generation BOSE headphoens, IE stands out as a typical bass-heavy product that churn out an abnomal amount of bass which you can often find on bose small speakers, OE really shines with its unprecedented fit and incredible comfort, and that kinda left AE behind. What makes AE so special & unique was it's normal or somewhat easy-going approach towards all frequency spectrum. We don't get tons of bass in AE as in OE and IE, but instead we got some really high-quality spectrum balance from lows to highs, they're smooth, with that little sparkle in the high notes to discern acoustic guitar from electric ones. Things went down hill from 2nd generation and now SoundTrue comes out I think it's the worst generation. BOSE has a reputation of good sound, and it also has a reputation of tuning bass down generation by generation, such is the case with WAVE, soundtouch or soundlink, and the same rule applies to bose headphones. Jesus, no. AE's not worth the price. I'm disappointed.

        I love the headset, it sounds amazing but the cable is way to long. Wish they had a smaller one.
