Our Verdict Fine enough headphones, but there's much better out there For Decent noise isolation, good call quality Against Lack detailing and finesse Reviewed on 3rd December 2009 The Boses encourage a Cyberman look – the headband is forced outwards leaving a huge gap between the band and wearer’s head, just above the ears. But, look past the aesthetics and you’ll actually find a comfy pair of cans. Music sounds neat and tidy, even when the headphones are pushed hard. Chase and Status’s No Problem can unsettle the most composed speakers, never mind headphones, but these handle the pounding bass just fine. But, this neatness and calmness means the Boses don’t have a cutting edge, lacking detail and finesse. More after the break Fine, then, but only in a ham-sandwich-on-white way.
