An Honest Review Of Bose On Ear Wireless Headphones
After two plus years of daily use, I can give you an honest review of Bose on ear wireless headphones.
Technology has never been my area of expertise so, a few years ago, when I was looking into sound therapy to assist my recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, I asked my son to help. Jordan (my son) was, and still is, big into music. He spoke about frequencies and ranges that need to be picked up by your headphones in order to get the most benefit from sound therapy.
Haven tried on at least 20 different pairs of headphones my head was spinning but, finally we settled on the Bose On Ear Wireless Headphones.

Why Bose On Ear Wireless Headphones
A few years ago, while searching for natural ways to recover from CFS/FM I discovered Solfeggio Frequencies. These frequencies have been scientifically proven to have significant health benefits. To get the most from these ancient tones you must have crystal clear audio, which you won’t get from cheap headphones. Yes, there are more expensive headphones on the market for DJ’s and the like but, the Bose On Ear Wireless are more than adequate to get the most from Solfeggio Frequencies.
Comfort And Durability
The Bose On Ear Wireless Headphones can be worn up to 9 meters away from any device it is connected to, allowing you to comfortably move around the home or office environment while listening to your favorite tracks.
They feel light and comfortable on your head and the soft, velvety ear padding makes them a pleasure to wear. Though comfortable while sitting listening to meditation, or even tipping around the house, they are not designed for sporting activities.
Although made from plastic, they don’t look or feel, cheap. I’ve had my set for over two years now, without issue. The soft ear padding, control buttons and all mechanisms are still intact. But, I have to say that these headphones were well minded and put in their case after every use. Just like all tech products, they are delicate and need to be handled accordingly to get the most from them.
The battery life of the Bose On Ear Wireless Headphones are also impressive; lasting up to 16 hours on half volume when fully charged. A full charge takes up to 2.5 hours and, when finished and ready for use, the indicator light glows white. The only thing is, whilst on charge, the headphones do not cancel noise or, play audio. That being said, it’s never advised to use any gadget while charging as it can cause overheating.
Replacement batteries and ear pads can also be purchased but, it is advised to send your headphones to Bose to get your new batteries and pads installed. Particularly within the two-year warranty time frame. That being said, I have been using mine between 1 and 2 hours daily for the last couple of years with zero complaints thus far.

Overall, my experience with Bose On Ear Wireless Headphones has been pleasant and I’ve had no problems. Grabbing 4.6 out of a possible 5 stars from 1267 reviews is pretty impressive (80% of those were 5star, including mine), but, I’m not surprised as they do exactly what it said on the box.
Thank you kindly for reading my honest review of Bose On Ear Wireless Headphones, I hope it helps you.
Note: If your environment is too noisy and prone to sound distractions then maybe noise cancelling headphones would be a better fit. My daughter has sensory issues and uses these headphones in class. An honest review of these (JBL Live 650BTJBL Live 650BT) will follow soon. But, they do exactly what it says on the tin and we have no complaints thus far 🙂
