Bluetooth Bose Speakers Review

The first thing you think when you see the name Bose is : "Holy Gopher Gods, its a Bose!".  Inner thigh moistness may develop depending on your level of enthusiasm.

However, be warned!  Don't sell your soul yet for a Bose Bluetooth Headset.  Read the following review and see for yourself if this bad boy is for you.

Our gophers gave this Bose piece the full run through - from mosh pits to  the race track - Can you hear me now?

Our Review

Let's face it, the Bose Headset has a big name to live up to.  If I were to try and find a way to demonstrate the kind of pressure a name could create, imagine if your parents had called you Baby Jesus.  You'd have your work cut out for you right?  Well that's the challenge this headset faced.  On most fronts, it did OK.  On others, meh... not so good! (psst!  No A2DP streaming.  What the eff?)

The Look

Sexy!  Prop it on your ear and suddenly your 1993 SAAB seems inadequate for your new look.  Its stylish design oozes that neo-modern look all gophers crave.  It fits very comfortably in your ear with easy to access controls.  Most testers had no problem slipping it on while only a minority had difficulty from keeping the unit from falling off their ears.

Setup

Its your basic sync and play unit.  If you've used Bluetooth technology before you will feel right at home with this Bose unit.

Battery Life

Way above average: 4 hours and 30 minutes.  Its perfect for taxi drivers who moonlight as tech support agents.

Sound Quality

What?  I can't hear you. Noise cancellation is weak, especially for a headset sporting the Bose brand.  Don't conference call while driving with your windows down, your employer WILL hear the wind blowing and know you're not actually at your desk.  Some cheaper models like the Aliph Jawbone did a better job at isolating your voice from the outside world.

Should you buy it?

Unless you have money burning a hole in your pocket, I would advise against buying the Bose Bluetooth Headset.  Why?  You could find cheaper models that perform way better.  The only reason I can think of to buy this piece is for the look alone.  Did I mention its sexy?

Pros

  • Decent battery life
  • Cool looking design
  • Comfortable for those with non deformed ears
  • Sync and play!

Cons

  • Expensive - you're paying for the Bose name
  • Mediocre noise cancellation for a Bose
  • No A2DP streaming
