Bose® AE2W (Over-Ear) Full Size Bluetooth Headphones, Black

Special offer

Product information

Bose’s AE2W Bluetooth headphones offer full, natural sound and a comfortable, around-ear fit with exceptional freedom of movement. You can watch your video on your iPad and reach for your drink, or talk on your smartphone and grab notes from your desk, untethered and untangled.

Key benefits:

  • AE2W headphones feature exclusive TriPort technology, which enables full-range sound with clear highs and full lows, in a lightweight design. The headphones also feature active equalisation in the control module that provides a noticeable improvement to the sound quality.
  • These headphones have a range of 30 feet so you can move around freely while still immersed in your music or video. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides seven hours of run time and 200 hours of standby time. You can easily recharge it with the included USB cable.
  • The headphones' control module lets you connect wirelessly to your iPad, smartphone or other Bluetooth devices. You can even connect the headphones to two devices simultaneously. For example, you can watch a video on your iPad while staying connected to your smartphone. The headphones will automatically pause the video to answer a call. Then, when the call is finished, the headphones automatically switch back to the video.
  • Buttons on the control module include power, volume and multifunction. Operate iPad functions such as play/pause and track controls for music and videos with a touch. It also lets you switch between calls and other audio. LED and audio indicators on the control module provide information on power, battery life and Bluetooth connection status.
  • The module's built-in microphone lets you make calls when the headphones are connected to your smartphone and talk to the voice-recognition apps, like Siri or Google search, on your smartphone.
  • Cushioned earcups and an adjustable headband let you wear the headphones comfortably for hours. And the earcups fold flat for convenient storage in the carry bag.
  • Includes Bluetooth control module, charging cable, audio cable and drawstring carrier bag.

Q & As

Bose AE2W (Over-Ear) Full Size Bluetooth Headphones, Black 5 5 9 9
Bose AE2W Absolutely lovely. I also used the click and collect service for their delivery and that worked like a dream. So all around extremely satisfied 20 January 2015
Superb These headphones are fabulous. They took me no longer than 20s to sync with my iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6. You can remove the controller module attached to the left earpiece to then insert the audio cable (supplied) if you wish to use these headphones with non Bluetooth devices. I'm very pleased with my purchase. 31 December 2014

Awesome as Bose always are. Been a Bose fanatic for many years so when I decided I wanted a wireless set Bose was the only set I trusted not to disappoint. Fantastic 01 March 2014
Bose magic I have had various Bose products over the years and have been very happy, these were bought for me as a present and I must say live up to the usual very high standards that I have come to expect. light and comfortable to wear and a great sound, I would have no hesitation recommending these to anyone. 07 February 2014
Wonderful! I bought these headphones as a present for myself. I wear hearing aids, the headphones fit perfectly over them and enhance the sound beautifully! It is also great to listen to music or audio books with my IPhone in my pocket around the house or with my laptop without the wires! Bose do include the cable. A brilliant product! 22 January 2014
