As much as I breathe and live music, I am also extremely frugal and watchful about my music spending. One could get carried away with memberships to apple music, solo piano radio, owning and purchasing music, and acquiring music products. That is the reason I stayed away from purchasing expensive headphones for myself. For the amount of music I listen to, good headphones are a necessity, not even a luxury for me. First world problems, I know. I coveted good head phones but never wanted to shell $$$ for them.
My Christmas present from my immediate family was a set of Bose Noise Canceling Headphones. Yes, they splurged on me. Yes, I am glad they did. Yes, I was giddy like a school girl. Yes, it has become a part of my body since then.
Apple products are mostly awesome and I swear by my IPhone at any given time. But their head phones were just average.
Ever since I started using my Bose Headphones, I could not imagine I existed this long without these head phones. It is like thinking of a time when google did not exist. How did we find things? It is the same feeling, if you can relate to it.
They never fall out. I mean never. They fit snugly in my ears and stay there, whether I am biking or running or generally walking about. They are also comfortable to wear when you are lying down.
The buds don't hurt my ears, like never.
This issue may be particular to me. When I wear other head phones, I used to get this very slight pain in one of the the neck. I could never figure out why. Well, that does not happen anymore.
They are not kidding about the noise-canceling feature. Sometimes, I wear it at work or on my drive and for some reason the music is off. I feel like I am disconnected from the world around me because I cannot hear a damn thing around me. The day-to-day din does not get to you. This is good but also very disarming because you don't prepare for things around you because you cannot hear anything.
The music quality is out of this world. I can tell the difference between my Bose head phones and other brands. I really can!
This is important for a freaky organizing person like me that they come in a handy little case.
So my recommendation would be to definitely get them if you can care to spend the money!
