Our review team certainly aren't stupid, 3xtigy - they have years of experience and tested these headphones against a range of rivals.
Remember, we review on a performance-per-pound basis: in our opinion there are other headphones that offer more for this money.
who ever done this review must be stupid. These headphones are awesome. The sound is great esp on video games or linked up to the ipod.
They dont look very well made but they are very stable and comfortable.
These headphones should get 4/5 stars EASY.
Pro's :: The sound quaility is very good. crisp and claer (brilliant infact ) Bass levels really pack a punch. Smart design and looks great. great noise canceling design
Dont look very well made. Dont use for sports. the wire is not very long.
4/5 Stars from me.
I also have these headphones and have done for quite a few years. I love them also, I got them at a good price in the States, but....
I have to agree that the sound is rather flat and lacks any vibrancy or energy.
Bose are well known to only concentrate on certain frequencies hence why they do not publish and specs worth knowing.
These are very comfortable and I actually think they look well made. The sound is fine if you listen to music with lathergic bass, such as Dr Dre or Rihanna, anything else with acoustic depth will sound lifeless and dull. The highs are distorted and the mids are meshed, the lows are flat and do not contain any punch.
Personally I think these headphones are outperformed easily by set a third of their price.
That said these are still my headphones of choice for commuting, as I said they are comfortable, fairly well isolating, fold away nicely and 3.5mm connection by the left ear has saved the headphones from flying off my head when the cable gets caught on something (which happens far too often!). With that said, at home my Grados SR80i's and new ATHES7's make me forget that the Bose are even in my ownership.
I'd even recommend the new A-Jays One (which weren't available when I bought the Bose) over these.
I love them for some strange reason, but as far as the audio quality is concerned, these aren't the best.

Chord’s QBD76 HDSD is a top-class converter that delivers a brilliant sound from a well-built package. It has plenty of visual appeal, too
There are more talented rivals on the scene, but the veterans are enduring greats
Cracking value for an all-in-one home cinema system with only a few spec and performance gripes qualifying our praise
