Bose Sound True Around Ear II




So what are the Bose AE2 Closed back headphones all about? Closed back vs. open back headphones? To put it simply, it’s a straightforward, pleasant sound that’s going to appeal to most people. For the average listener/consumer, these will sound quite amazing. To the audiophile, they’ll sound good but not spectacular.

With not a hint of sibilance, these puppies are smooth across all frequencies, with a bass that has impact and a mid-range that’s not incredibly detailed, but still provides some. What does sibilant mean?

Overall it’s an extremely crisp experience. The bass is there but doesn’t seem forced which is nice.

Comfort is exemplary as usual, and is always the highlight of a Bose headphone. Build is also excellent, and while these feel especially lightweight, they don’t feel cheap or flimsy. A plus indeed!


  • Pleasant sound.
  • Crisp character.
  • Nice bass presence.
  • Extremely comfortable.
  • Good build.


  • None!

Amp/DAC requirements

  • These aren’t designed to be used with a headphone amp. They are extremely portable and are meant to be paired with a phone or mobile device. How to choose a headphone amp!

Who these headphones benefit?

I would say they work well with most genres due to the balanced sound signature and pleasant overall character.


The Bose AE2 is an exceptionally comfortable set of closed back headphones with a crisp sound signature and present bass. They are portable, lightweight, and pair nicely with your Samsung or Android device.

Final Word

I think these are a good set, but I think the QC35’s are better, as they have noise cancelling features, better construction, and more features overall. Interested in learning more about them?
