When it comes to headphones, Bose has the best quality hardware money can buy. Of course, they are not the cheapest. But if you’re a true headphone nerd (yes, these really do exist), then you might want to consider saving up to buy some headphones from Bose. It’s not that Bose always has the best sound quality on the planet, it’s more that Bose can store high-quality audio in smaller spaces than its competition. This makes Bose headphones the lightest option you have when it comes to headphones for your television.
Bose headphones come in various models. Take, for example, their top-notch model, the QuietComfort series of headphones. These are very expensive, especially when it comes to headphones. It’s over $ 300. By most people’s standards, it’s a rib coming out of your rib cage. But a good pair of headphones from Bose doesn’t necessarily have to cost you an arm and a leg. There are also cheaper ones under $ 200. These are the AE2 and OE2 models. These aren’t as fancy as the QuietComfort models, but they’re still pretty good.
If you have the money to spend and want the best of Bose, you should definitely go for the QuietComfort models. These have absolutely impressive noise cancellation capabilities. Not only can you wear them while watching TV, but you can also wear them while on a plane. Even when you turn the volume on your iPod all the way down to half … QuietComfort models will still deliver crystal clear audio. The best thing about QuietComforts is that they are wireless. Depending on the model you choose, it will have a battery life of 25 or 35 hours. That’s enough for most air travel, isn’t it?
The most affordable model, the EA2, also gives you great audio quality for your money. The problem with the EA2 models is that they exaggerate the bass a bit. This means that bass sounds will be emphasized quite a bit in whatever type of music you listen to. Keep this in mind before purchasing an EA2. The EA2 also comes with a microphone and remote volume controller. This is the EA2i model. The remote volume controller only works with Apple hardware. So if you’re not an Apple fan, there aren’t many reasons to choose the EA2i over the EA2. Unless, of course, you really want that built-in mic.
