Bargain price. These are fantastic. Tried momentums but these are much better. Super lightweight and very comfy.

It says that they are Available to Order Online & Collect in Store from 1 hour' so i am assuming they are instore as well.
Great price and voted hot but just be aware that these are the original AE's which have now been replaced by the AE II's.
Hot. Amazing headphones, so comfortable too.
general consensus amongst reviewers is that Bose overall headphone sound quality isn't all that great.

for noise cancellation, their headphones are excellent, however for pure sound I would not be buying these. there are better headphones for your money
Worth looking at for this price. Not worth the RRP but do I go for these or m50x for £89 off amazon?
these or b&W p3??

What would you recommend in this minefield, your opinion would be great thank you
something like this:

Sony MDR10RBT - very good wireless, bluetooth headphones

Sony MDR-1R "Ultimate-Over-Ear" - also very good

slightly more expensive but will worth it in the long run, the sound from bose headphones can be quite tinny, but like I said noise cancellation (which these bose headphones in the deal are not, bose are absolutely amazing), but if you're looking for a normal pair of headphones I would avoid them, they really are nothing special.

these or b&W p3??



The p3s are on ear and I couldn't keep them on my ears. I found that any movement and they would move. Annoying. They Look nice but I'd go for these over them for the around ear comfort.
To whoever said these were better than the Momentums - they maybe more comfortable but they certainly do not sound better.
Are the the version 1 or 2 ?

These are version 1 But to be honest I can't see that much difference between them apart from the design 'But then again I am no expert' But maybe someone else on here can explain the differences in more detail to justify the extra £75 for the newer model

​More concerned looking at the Bose site that it's the version 2 that are Android compatible fully as opposed to just volume

​Depends on how much you can get the P3s for? I think the P3s produce better sound than AEs but are generally more expensive. If you can get the p3s below £100 then I'd go for them, However around this price then I'd probably go with the AEs..... Definitely worth £75. Also worth taking a look at the momentum on ears as well around this price range.

For me all I wanted was a pair of over ear headphones that I can listen to some music and watch a movie on my comp/tablet/phone(android) and have an half decent sound and be able to relax in comfort' as my last pair started hurting my ears after a while and from what people have said on the reviews these are soooo comfortable' so these are great for what I need and at this price I won't be complaining. But if people have the extra £75 to get the new BOSE SoundTrue II Headphones and think that they are worth the extra money then go for it' but there are many other headphones out there at the £150 price range that would give them a run for there money'

£12 more, you can have a DT770 pro 250Ω, better sound but you have to have an amp.

Just bought one pair from New Malden after some tests.
Not top of the range, but for £75 are absolutely bargain.

The design of the momentums is awful. Enough to put me off whatever they sound like.

Unfortunately I have the AE2's and whilst the sound is perfectly clear and great for classical music, audio books etc, it had very little bass and delivered very little oomph in virtually any other genres. Not a bad headphone by any stretch of the imagination, but not really comparable to the Momentums which were voted the best headphones by EISA.

For anyone else willing to spend a tad more the Bower's and Wilkins P5's occasionally drop to about £120 and they sound absolutely marvelous.

I have the 80ohm and they sound great with or without an amp and to be honest I cant imagine a headphone in this price range sounding any better than the Beyer as much as I like Bose.

Agree, the bass is no so aggressive, but can you post a link for Momentus around 75?





Edited by: "deliveryman" 14th Nov 2015
I use a set of these for gaming and they are brilliant. Agree not as strong bass as others but I would say the bass on many others is over emphasised as people seem to like that.
Does anyone know if these are loud for people who sat near you with them on?

They are pretty much identical to the ones in this deal except they are the on-ear version and not the around-ear one.
And for anyone asking, these are near enough identical to the Gen 2 just with microphone compatibility for selected devices.Gen 1 microphone only works fully on iProducts.
