Good except background hiss noise
I bought this cans just three days ago. Comfort, design, sound quality are nice for Bluetooth headphone. But I am considering return because of background hiss noise. Whenever music starts (via my iPhone 5s with newest iOS), annoying hiss noise constantly appears. For some loud music, it is igrorable, but for calm music, say solo piano, this noise really bothers me enjoying music. I actually wonder this problem is only for my cans or not. And if my cans are completely normal, then I think Bose should caution hiss noise in their ad of this cans.
great sound in stereo.. bad sound in handfree.
I bought these headphones about 6 months ago when my other set died because my dog kept ripping the cord out of the computer (wireless was key). I was happy with the sound and it was clear and perfect. then I logged into skype to talk to people and realized they could not hear me (had it set to stereo) changed it to handsfree with the mic working under handsfree. The sound quality for hearing them decreased significantly along with the people saying it sounds like I was talking through a tin can. on top of all of this I would have them on and be talking on skype, ventrilo, mumble whatever I was using at the time and they would disconnect from my computer every 20 minutes which i would then have to 1) turn off the headset, 2) close the program I was using, 3) repair the headset 4) reopen the program in order for it to work.. (just reconnecting the headset did not work). I then ended up buying a webcam that had a mic on it setting it to stereo and using the webcam as a mic (sounds much better). but its kinda annoying that I had to do that when i bought this headset for that reason.
No sound with audio cable
These were the best Christmas present until they quit working. I got these for Christmas (2015) and I used them every day. During work hours I plug them into my computer and when I'm out and about I use the bluetooth. They were absolutely perfect when suddenly the sound became warbled with the audio cable. It sounded like speakers had blown out. I bought another audio cable thinking that might be the issue but that didn't help. I can't sync them with my work computer and the main reason I specifically requested these headphone as a gift was for the dual function of audio cable and wireless. Poor quality Bose. I expected more from you.
I brought these headphones not more then probably a month ago. There so good to grab and the feel . And put on but I have a iPhone 6 and when I'm watching a video on YouTube and fast forward it. It sumtimes breaks out and I can't hear the video with the speakers or the headphones . So I just put on music from tidal and it works perfectly fine . It happen today and also I just got it basicly and sometimes the audio is lowered down ? And also one of the ear sides don't have sound until like 3 minutes later . I'm expecting to get the 35 but these headphones are a mix to be honest

I just bought this headphones and I just have to say that they sound really amazing. The sound is well balanced and not just focused on the bass like other high end headphones. The noise cancel feature is also pretty good, it really immerses you into the music. Really good.
Best wireless headphones ever
These are my very first wireless headphones, very clear sound, the music sounds awesome. They are very comfortable to wear for traveling and just sitting at home. I will be buying again, thank you Bose for the best experience

When wearing this headset you can not hear anything else, and the sound is really good. Of course they get quiet warm to wear after a long time because they are so close and do not let any air in.
First Time Bose User
This is my first pair of Bose ever. Was using a pair of Sennheisers from 1980 that still sound fantastic but they're wired. Boy does this set deliver. Great balanced sound without excessive bass or crackly highs. Am primarily using them with my Raspberry PI2/Kodi media center. The Raspberry PI2 has horrible analog audio out to my stereo but via bluetooth the sound output is crystal clear. It will also pair to a second device like my phone so I can watch tv and if the phone rings I can answer it. The wireless mic works way better than those bluetooth earpieces for phones. My dad wears 2 hearing aids and said in a phone call to him that I sounded like I was in the room with him. Very comfortable. One knock is that the volume/play control button is in the far back of the right headset. Not horrible but the force required to slide the volume up or down for example might push the headset up or down a bit. Holding the right headpiece in place with your right hand then working the control with your thumb helps. Second knock - seriously expensive which is why I never bought Bose in the past. Have to say though that if these hold up over the long run like my Sennheisers then they will have been worth the money.
Sounds great, just not comfortable for long wear.
I really like the sound, typical Bose clarity. The only problem I have is that after about an hour or so of wearing them they're uncomfortable because of slight pressure on the ear. This is disappointing because my previous headphones (QC-25s) never gave me this problem.
