Bose AE2w Review

Bose AE2W is Bluetooth version of relatively popular AE2 headphones and are full-size ear-pieces having detachable Bluetooth model with individual battery. It implies you are able to switch between utilizing them as wired or wireless headphones with few seconds. Though slightly deficient in impact, compared with other Bose products like the OC20i, they do sound fairly well for Bluetooth devices.

 

The Bose AE2W headphone closely resembles the AE2i and AE2, when the wireless dongle is not attached. Its core design is just the same with some slight variance in finish. The headphones are available in black alone, with some mix of glossy and matt finishes on back of ear-cups. The Bluetooth part slots on left ear-cup via 2.5mm jack port, which is somewhat jerky, making your Bose AE2W gadget, appear more like call-centre headset, as opposed to headphone-pair. Most of the other wireless headphones do incorporate Bluetooth functionality, yet in more subtle style.

 

The Bluetooth module features multi-function button, power switch and microphone as well as volume control. These control play-back of calls and music are like any hands-free remote and sit in just the right place for operation with forefinger and left thumb, with volume rocker buttons contoured sufficiently for blind flawless use. Just as for Bose AE2, the AE2w are relatively comfortable and light, with pads being exceptionally-soft and headband pressure almost judged perfectly. These keep in place as you jog, but are no too strong to give a clamped feel to your head.

 

The pair of headphones is impressive for commuting, though they might not offer users the quiet and comfort they desire in terms of preventing outside interference. Bose AE2w avoids using active noise cancellation, featuring only average functionality in this regard. Pairing this gadget with phone is rather a convenient operation and Apt-X support saves you from experiencing significant loss in audio quality when streaming from Apt-X compatible gadget. The Bluetooth-module play/pause button can however respond slowly at times.

 

Users can expect to get good quality of sound, similar to that provided by the AE2i and AE2 sets. Sound is less warm slightly, however than its top-end counterparts. Detailing is done well on the headphones, with decent impression of separation and clarity. The sound generated by the AE2w from Boise is not perfect nonetheless. Although Bass is satisfactory, its impact is rather limited and the Middle section of sounds is equally recessed. All said, the headphones present fairly well-balanced and enjoyable sound overall which rates well among other Bluetooth products in its class within the market. You can attain some measure of comfort while wearing these headphones, whose Bluetooth remote functionality is super-intuitive. Cable plug-in is possible as well, is the battery goes flat. Bose AE2w with Bluetooth does seem to be a bit chunky, though they end up supplying fair amount of entertaining value to users. They are worth considering as a nice pair of wireless listening tools.

  • The Good :
    Decent quality of sound; Comfortable; Bluetooth-enabled
  • The Bad :
    Relatively expensive; Not very presentable; Large housing for Bluetooth
Our score:
4 / 5
