Yet they’re durable enough to survive your busy life, and include a matching carrying case.

  • 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 select iPhone models

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.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now a 5 Star About two weeks ago, I got the SoundTrue II and liked them. I also like my original SoundTrues. I had originally thought the new ones were a bit more bass heavy and thought maybe Bose was competing with Beats. Well, after listening to many genres of my music library, and adjusting the EQ to different genres, I'd have to say these are as good, perhaps better, than the originals. The online audio magazines think since the components of both SoundTrue generations are the same, the earcup design slightly alters the richness in the bass. The icing on the cake for these new headphones, though, was that they have a thicker headband than the originals, and the new Blue color perfectly matches my new iPod Touch. These headphones don't use much battery power either which, along with using the iPod Touch, saves my iPhone battery tremendously. Thanks Bose for these supremely comfortable, rich-sounding headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for money I’ve received a complimentary pair of the Bose SoundTrue headphones II from Bose for review purposes and I am happy to report that these are probably the best value for money pair of headphones that Bose make. For one they are extremely light (I’m talking about forgetting you have headphones on light) and exceptionally comfortable cushioning (which I can only assume is memory foam) in the cups which make them ideal for long periods of use. The Sound quality is exceptional and although they do not have the Active noise cancellation that the QC25 model has, they offer phenomenal noise isolation from outside noise. Sounds are crisp and clean and lows are rich. I found them ideal for working on my computer or tablet for extended periods of time. If you combine those facts and the price being almost half the price of the QC25’s and very similar sound quality and design, they are in my opinion very good value for money. I can wholeheartedly recommend these headphones to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Standard Bose First I got these SoundTrue around-ear headphones for free from Bose for doing a test and review.Not our first Bose products.My wife and I each have in ear headphones for the gym plus we have QC 25 headphones a SoundTouch 30 and 10 wireless systems. So when these came I expected quality and a Very Good sound.Came in the mail through UPS.Was packaged very well.Shouldn't have to worry about damage if you order on line.First thing I noticed when I took them out of box was how light they were.So you should be able to wear for hours without discomfort.Fit and finish-hinges-adjusting size - ear cups- all that you would expect from Bose - Top Notch.Now the sound.I listened to 5 hrs. Of music with these.The longest I had them on at one time was 2 hrs.Very comfortable and the cups didn't get hot.A little warm but not bad at all.I listened Stanko-Coltrane-Davies on Pandora and the sound of these jazz greats was superb.With these headphones on I can hear soft sounds like the light of a cymbal,the brush on a snare drum,sounds without the headphones I don't hear.Went to Sinatra to hear singing.Not disappointed at all.Turned the volume way up, no distortions or crackling, just good solid sound.Used on iPad -iPhone-Shuffle worked great on all.Had great separation between left and right.For the money would highly recommend.Only thing I didn't really care for was the plug that goes into your device.QC has a plug that comes out and then turns at a 90.Even the in ear headphones has a similar plug.This one comes straight out which looks like it might be easier to break off.So. If looking for a good set but don't want to spend top dollar, give these s try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior headphones at this price point. I received these around ear headphones from Bose two weeks ago to review, and have used them as my primary headphones every day since. Here’s the short review: If you need a good pair of around ear headphones, just go buy these. They can’t be beat, especially at this price-point. Now for a more thorough look. I love around the ear headphones because they give such an expanded soundstage. I usually find myself using earbuds out of convenience, and the difference in stage presence was immediately noticeable; compared to buds, these sounded almost like 3-D. I had never noticed how compressed my earbuds sounded before, and I use very high quality earbuds. This openness allows you to get immersed in your music in a way that you just can’t with other types of listening devices. The entire soundstage was present, and no single element overpowered the others; the bass was deep and full, but not boomy or muddy. The mids were articulate and solid. The highs shimmered. Acoustic guitars sounded fantastic! I don’t listen to a lot of orchestral music, but if I did, these would be my go-to headphones. The padding on the headphones seal comfortably around your ears, and the headphones are lightweight. I have worn them for 3 hours with no discomfort. Also, although they are not noise cancelling headphones, the seal is good enough to block out a whole lot of distractions and white noise. This is especially useful when using them to take a call. I heard my callers more clearly than I have with any other headphone, and they said they had no problem understanding me. At first, I had reservations about the cord. It seemed very thin to me, almost delicate. I compared the circumference with my other sets of earbuds (also Bose), and that confirmed that the cord here is indeed much smaller in diameter. This will not be a problem if the headphones are used for the purposes around ear headphones are made: the relax and enjoy your music, movies, etc., with the added ability to talk on the phone. In all other respects, the headphones appear to be well-built and durable, as all Bose products are. These aren’t my first choice for going to the gym or trimming the verds. Any sort of vigorous activity will make your ears sweat a lot, and you’ll not have a good time. The Soundtrue AE II’s come with a nice carrying case, which adds to the presentation when you open the box. To be completely honest, though, I haven’t put them back in the case since I’ve had them. It wouldn’t be a bad idea, but I just never seem to take the time. In summation, these are excellent around the ear headphones. If you’re looking for a pair, these just can’t be beat.
