Bose AE2w Bluetooth headphone
The Bose AE2w Bluetooth headphones are the perfect pair for a traveler or just someone who wants impressive audio, without the bulky design and all of the wires running throughout the equipment. This pair of on-ear headphones provides a nearly perfect sound reproduction, and with the design. The headphones fold in on itself, so the larger headphones can fit into a pocket or small compartment in a backpack, making it possible to take these headphones anywhere.
The Bluetooth feature is a truly desirable option. The cable of headphones is usually what gets in the way. It tangles up whenever the headphones are pushed into a pocket or other confined location, and even while wearing headphones, it can be a bit problematic for where to place the wire. Thankfully, with the Bluetooth design, this is no longer an issue. The headphones wirelessly receive the audio information from any Bluetooth-enabled device, such as a smartphone, tablet, computer system or other hardware. This way a traveler does not have to plug the equipment in on the go. They can directly activate the Bluetooth feature on their phone, and they are ready to go.
Better sound built in
Like our other AE2 headphones, the AE2w headphones feature exclusive TriPort technology, which enables full-range sound the clear highs to the full lows from a lightweight design. The headphones also feature active equalization in the control module that provides a noticeable improvement to the sound quality. Your music and movies will take on a dramatic new dimension.
Versatile control module
Buttons on the control module include power, volume and multifunction. This button operates iPad functions such as play/pause and track controls for music and videos. It also lets you switch between calls and other audio. LED and audio indicators on the control module provide information on power, battery life, and Bluetooth connection status.
The module’s built-in microphone lets you make calls when the headphones are connected to your smartphone and talk to the voice-recognition apps, like Siri or Google search, on your smartphone or iPad. The control module includes power, volume, and multifunction buttons The headphones come with a convenient carry bag so they can go where you go.
Comfort and durability
The headphones are designed with features and materials that provide lasting quality. The cushioned earcups and adjustable headband let you wear the headphones comfortably for hours. And the earcups fold flat for convenient storage in the carry bag. This makes it easy to take them wherever your travels take you.
Naturally, there is a battery built into the Bluetooth headphones, and as this Bose ae2w Bluetooth review points out, the battery lasts eight hours. This does provide a desirable level of playback off of a rechargeable battery. But for some people, this is not going to do as they like having access to a wired connected set of headphones. So they do not need to worry about the battery. This this is partially the case with the pair of Bose headphones, the equipment does come with a 3.5mm cable. So it is possible, once the battery is dead, or to sustain the battery, to plug the cable into the headphones and then into the media device and listen to music or other audio content, without making a drain or needing the help of the Bluetooth battery at all.
The bottom line
I was impressed with the Bose® AE2w Bluetooth® headphones. I love their comfort, the easy-to-use controls, the wired option, and their natural midrange and wide soundstage. And I could get used to the freedom that wireless connectivity offers. When you put it all together, the whole package is greater than the sum of its parts. After just a couple of hours with them, the AE2w headphones have become one of my favorite Bluetooth models. And with the popularity Bose enjoys, I suspect it will become a customer favorite as well.
