If you get a call while you're listening to music or watching a video, just touch a button on the right earcup and you're instantly connected. Touch again to play, pause, skip and make calls. Roam up to 30 feet while connected to your smartphone and tablet at the same time. Voice prompts tell you battery life, connection status and who's calling.

abunda_amazon_reviews I've spent a long time in the following comparison, so I decided to write the results, to make other people save the time I've "lost" :) I was looking for a small, portable, good looking and good sounding On-Ear or "mini Around the Ear" Bluetooth Headphones to use for music on the Bus and while I do Fitness, and eventually at home, so I have bought a few ones to compare. I've compared: Sennheiser MM400-X Jabra Revo Wireless Bose Soundlink On-Ear Philips Fidelio M1BT Sony MDR-10RBT = All the best and portable enough Bluetooth headphones available at the moment. I've compared them for many weeks, with my Xperia Z1 Compact (APTX support) + Neutron as Music Player, and with my PC (which gets Bluetooth+APTX through an Azio BTD-V401 Dongle and a Sennheiser BTD 500 Dongle, which I also wanted to compare. See my other reviews for that. Or simply avoid the Azio!) + MusicBee as player. I've used many different musical genres, mostly MP3 of different qualities, some Flac, and some CDs. I've tested each headphone at first without EQ, then with EQ to see how much can their lacks and excesses be compensated with EQ. Very quickly I understood that the Bose and the Philips were clear winners. It was more difficult, to be honest, to chose between them two. Although the Fidelio sounded better, with more detail and soundstage, crispier highs, and a wonderful fat vibrant bass, the Bose also sounded very good and had other advantages. I initially declared Bose as winner, because of their better portability, better comfort, slightly better range, and their ability to connect with two devices at same time (= Multipoint). But somehow I have then missed the Fidelio, so when the M2BT came out here in EU, I decided to try them. And I just could not let them go anymore. Not only they even slightly improved the original sound of the M1BT, but also added Multipoint, NFC, and softer ear-pads. The Bose are still more comfortable and more portable and have some other advantages, and sound very good, but in this moment they are for me N°2 for "best mix of portability and sound", and one of the best overall among more than 20 BT Headphones tested. Not bad at all. EDIT: it seems that the Bose Soundlink On-Ear have compatibility problems with iOS devices, which cause intermittent connectivity and skipping music. It is not clear to me if this problem happens always to all iOS users or just on some units, but given this risk I would suggest to buy them only where you can return them in case of problems. Like here in Amazon. I am waiting for an answer from Bose about this. For now I only know they are aware of it and are searching for a solution which could be applied via firmware update. Android and Windows users are not affected by this issue. So, the comparison: Bose Soundlink On-Ear. PROS: Light, small and foldable. You can even keep them in the pocket of your jacket. Elegant form and small dimension = Look good and discrete on the head Fit tightly enough to do fitness, and still feel gently and soft on the ears for many hours. The overall sound is impressive, considering how small they are, and the absence of APTX. The "tone" or quality of the sound is pleasantly "fresh", like I prefer, and still they're balanced enough not to miss any part of the spectrum. Neither too warm nor too cold. The Highs are well represented and never "ear-hurting". The mids/vocals are not so warm like in the Revo, but are still near and present. The basses are actually surprising for something so little. They are not vibrant like the Fidelio, but still strong and punchy enough to make you move the head while listening to your favorite Techno theme, especially after some EQ. The soundstage is not thrilling, but is quite ok for such a small and on-ear headphone. The detail is also quite good. You can turn them on and off very quickly due to the analogical lever. They have got voice prompts which tell you "connecting to...", the state of the battery, and more. You can connect them to two devices at same time! This means, you can listen to music on your PC, and still be able to receive a phone call from your mobile phone. The music on the PC is automatically stopped when you receive a call, but on my experience you still have to close the music player on the PC or there are interferences. Occasionally I even had to disconnect the Headphones from the PC to avoid clips while talking. Not a big deal. After all, it's an exclusive extra. But it should be improved with a new firmware. Firmware can be updated via USB Nice semi-rigid carrying case CONS: one single button to pause the music and go to the next/previous track. Not the best solution. Three clicks for the previous track is a bit annoying. They have no APTX. I am convinced that the APTX would give them more detail. They require a mini jack if you want to use them with a cable. The cable is anyway included. The speakers cannot turn 90° in flat position. This allow the Bose to fold smaller in the pocket of your jacket, but makes them thicker than the Fidelio in a backpack, especially once in their carrying case. The carrying case also compresses them a bit. If you leave them in the case for some days you will find that the soft pads are pressed. Do not panic, it is memory foam, give them a while and they come back normal. Anyway, Bose, this should be improved. The two LED on the back of the right speaker cannot be disabled, but at least do not blink. They are expensive. Philips Fidelio M1BT: PROS: They look very good. Elegant. And although bigger than the Bose, still discrete enough. The buttons are practical: a click on the right speaker to pause/resume. A lever for volume up/down. A click on the lever for the next track, two for the previous track. They fit tightly and are still comfortable enough. The overall sound is surprisingly good, actually excellent. A bit warmer and punchy than the Bose, and still very well balanced. The Highs were crispier and more detailed, just more balanced by the warm mids and vibrant bass, so that on a first listening they do not stand out as much as on the Bose. The mids are very nice, warm and soft. The basses are wonderful. They are warm and vibrant. The best among these five Headphones. It is not a matter of quantity but of quality. I can say so: the Bose and the Revo can make you move the head, but only the Fidelio make you smile when the bass line comes... Specially the Sub-Bass ist the best among all BT Headphones I've tested, close to the one of the UE9000, with a wonderful warm gentle rumble, but also with enough Punch. The Soundstage is better than in the Bose, making them sound a bit more spacious and open, a bit less "right near the ear". They are also more detailed than the Bose, probably thanks to the APTX (Unfortunately I could not test them without APTX). CONS: Simple soft bag instead of a carrying case. There is no chance that you can put them quickly in the bag without taking the bag off the backpack first. Blinking led on the right speaker, which cannot be deactivated Not foldable (but the speakers can be turned of 90° making them at least thinner than the Bose). I just cannot imagine a valid reason to make bluetooth headphones which are not foldable, but well, nothing is perfect. TOO slow to turn off (very long click needed). This is annoying. Often I thought that I had already turned them off, and they were still on. Cheaper than the Bose but still not exactly cheap, and the new model (M2BT), which adds NTFC and supposedly goes even deeper in the bass frequencies, costs as much as the Bose. EDIT: a quick note about the Fidelio M2BT: it is the same as the M1BT, plus NFC, Multipoint, softer Ear-pads, different color (black over dark blue), different material for the head-band (textile instead of leather), a slightly improved Soundstage due to a different DSP, and a wider Frequency response which is not clearly noticeable on a first listening because it goes way beyond the frequencies we can normally ear. Still, this wider frequencies somehow indirectly improves the sound, giving some more sub-bass and more clarity in the highs. One negative aspect of the M2BT is that on some units the Multipoint causes connectivity problems. In this case anyway, differently than for the Bose, they can be solved resetting the Headphones a couple of times. So, why did the other three lose the competition? JABRA REVO WIRELESS They are beautiful, I liked their mix of discrete Olive and lively subtle Orange lines. But I prefer the Bose for discretion and the Fidelio for elegance. They sound warm, yes, but somehow a bit muffled. Probably because they lack highs and a bit upper mids. With some EQ and a bit of Reverb this improves, but they never sounded lively and open enough to me, having tried the other ones which sound brighter. They've got less punch than the Fidelio on the bass, more or less on pair with the Bose. With maybe (and I liked this) a tiny bit more rumble than the Bose. To give you an idea, I enjoyed more watching a film with the Revo than with the Bose, because the Revo had more this warm rumble effect of cinema speakers. The touch controls are cool but also a pain in the A. EVERY SINGLE TIME that I wanted to reach the central button to pause the music I finished turning the volume up or down. Same story for changing track. The bag is a joke. Period. They are a bit more comfortable than the Fidelio on long-term, but do not fit tight enough to do fitness. They have got NFC, yes, but no APTX. If you really need NFC (but, why?) you could have a look to the new Fidelio M2BT. The improvement given by the Dolby App is only while using that App as a music player (which has got no folder browser. I do not know you, but I like to organize my music in folders), and it does not bring the Revo to the level of the Fidelio for soundstage and detail, or of the Bose for freshness and balance. They have a wonderful orange cable covered in Fabric, with a Mic to use them as Headset also in cable mode. This is, I must admit, a nice point. I really liked the cable :D Sennheiser MM400-x: they look EXTREMELY AWFUL and make your head seem like a Rugby Ball in horizontal position like the kid of Family Guy. They sound sterile. Boring. The sound is quite detailed (APTX), clear, and fresh, even if with not much soundstage. But it is "cold", unemotional. And it completely lacks punch. Hearing Techno with them is like reading a recipe when you are hungry. They are the more portable, and have a removable battery. This means, you can buy an extra battery and be sure to never stay out of charge. The buttons are practical. The carrying case too. They are very light and comfortable, and still tight enough to do fitness. The good is that at least in EU you can find them cheaper than any of the others if you buy them from the Outlet of Sennheiser. 109 Euro!!! Last and least, Sony MDR-10RBT: They look cheap. The "silver" plastic is very bad taste. They are also too big to go around. They are Around the Ear, which makes them the most comfortable of the five on long term, and also gives them a good Soundstage, although for some reason the sound of these Sony tends to come from behind. This is for me very disturbing. The sound should come mostly from the front, or from everywhere like if you are in the middle. Also, they do not fit tightly enough, and according to how you move your head they leak sound and you lose basses. The overall sound is dark and dull. Too much upper bass and low mid. Bass is relatively strong but muffled, not lively, not clean. They have APTX, but Sony ships them with the APTX disabled as default. To enable it you must press a combination of buttons till the led blinks three times. In my tests the led did not blink the way Sony declared, and I could only confirm the APTX via notifications on my Phone. The best thing on these headphones is the carrying bag. Robust, a bit rigid, you can manage to slip the headphones in the bag in the middle of a crowded backpack. Another good thing on the Sony are the buttons. Two buttons for the volume, one lever for pause/next track/previous track. IMO the best solution together with the five buttons of the Sennheiser. So..., making a list: Overall Sound: 1) Fidelio 2) Bose 3) Revo 4) Sennheiser 5) Sony Basses: 1) Fidelio 2) Bose and Revo 3) Sony (n°1 for quantity, n°5 for quality) 4) Sennheiser Detail and Soundstage: 1) Fidelio 2) Bose and Sennheiser 3) Sony (would be at the first place for Room if the sound would not come from behind) 4) Revo Portability: 1) Sennheiser 2) Bose 3) Fidelio 4) Sony and Revo (Sony because of the better bag and flat turning speakers even if bigger dimensions, Revo because foldable). Look: 1) Bose and Fidelio 2) Revo 3) Sony 4) no. Sorry. Sennheiser just NO. The designer should be ashamed... Battery: 1) Sony and Bose (more or less 15 hours) 2) Fidelio, Jabra and Sennheiser (more or less 10 Hours, with Sennheiser giving the chance to buy an extra battery as reserve) Comfort: 1) Sony (because Around the Ear) 2) Bose and Sennheiser 3) Revo and Fidelio (specially the new M2BT) Bluetooth Range: 1) Bose and Sony 2) Fidelio and Revo 3) Sennheiser Functions: 1) Bose and Fidelio (clear winners for the double connectivity) Then the others are more or less the same, each with little pros and cons. EDIT: In the last months I have tested many more Headphones (more than 30). Some of them portable enough to be in this review. But I just cannot make such a huge review, so I have opened a Thread on Head-Fi, which actually became very successful. It is called "Huge Comparison of [almost] all the best Bluetooth Headphones". If you visit us there, we will be pleased to help you finding the right BT Headphone for you. Here I can only say that my favourite "portable BT Headphone" is now the AKG Y45BT. And my favourite main BT Headphone is the Audio Technica ATH-WS99BT.

The sound quality is fantastic, they are comfortable to wear, and the bluetooth support is very stable and easy to switch between devices. I used these regularly for music, podcasts, and calling. In spite of being over-ear they blocked a lot of outside noise too. The problem is the materials used don't last. The soft ear pads and headband are made out some cloth with a coating on it, and it doesn't hold up. I've cared for these well, always putting them in their case when transporting, never leaving them in the sun, never getting them wet. And yet after about a year the plush material started to fray, the coating flaking off. After another 6 moths the base cloth itself started to fray. Now they look like garbage and leave flakes of black plastic all over me when using them. The sound is still great and the base build is solid (no issues after 3 years) but the finishing materials that feel so plush at first just aren't built to last.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 7, 2018;;2.0 out of 5 stars;;Great sunding and at first seemingly well built, but earpiece and headband materials deteriorate over time;;Caleb Maclennan;;;I purchased the Beats Solo 2 and this Bose On-ear wireless at the same time to see which one I liked.

I tried out the Bluetooth and it works very well. I was able to leave my phone in one room and walk all over my apartment into other rooms while talking on the phone clearly. I like the sound better on the Bose as well, vocals are more crisper. I have small ears and had trouble with earbuds fitting properly and I'm glad to find a set of headphones that sit comfortably on my ears. I also tried the around-ear bose wireless and they were nice too, but too large for my head, i can see the around-ear headphones blocking out more environmental noise though.

I prefer these Bose headsets over the Beats headphones. But if you like pop music, beats might have better ranges for pop imo. I listen to orchestral/symphony type music. The exterior audio reduction is good. I'd say wearing these will reduce outside noise by ~50%. Much to her dismay, I can't hear my wife when I'm listening to the audio with these headphones. The audio quality is very good. Good depth and range. Good bass. I do have a complaints about the microphone. I presume it to be a power saving function, but the microphone turns completely off if you are not speaking or if you are in a quiet area. So, if your using a PC/Mac, the microphone will have to reconnect to the application every time you speak. Thus, it doesn't work for telecommunication programs like Avaya. Secondly, there is periodic popping with odd noise frequencies, such as the volume up/down on noise on a mac. This seems to only occur in some circumstances which I've yet to identify. But it doesn't happen a whole lot. The battery life is excellent, I have to say it exceeds expectations. Another thing to note is that the headband is not easy to clean when it gets soiled, so be sure to wipe it down when possible. Overall, these are comfortable and portable with excellent build and audio quality.;;Reviewed in the United States on July 18, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Best headphones I've owned-best I've tested;;rafia

Not bad at all. EDIT: it seems that the Bose Soundlink On-Ear have compatibility problems with iOS devices, which cause intermittent connectivity and skipping music. It is not clear to me if this problem happens always to all iOS users or just on some units, but given this risk I would suggest to buy them only where you can return them in case of problems. Like here in Amazon. I am waiting for an answer from Bose about this. For now I only know they are aware of it and are searching for a solution which could be applied via firmware update. Android and Windows users are not affected by this issue. So, the comparison: Bose Soundlink On-Ear. PROS: Light, small and foldable. You can even keep them in the pocket of your jacket. Elegant form and small dimension = Look good and discrete on the head Fit tightly enough to do fitness, and still feel gently and soft on the ears for many hours. The overall sound is impressive, considering how small they are, and the absence of APTX. The "tone" or quality of the sound is pleasantly "fresh", like I prefer, and still they're balanced enough not to miss any part of the spectrum. Neither too warm nor too cold. The Highs are well represented and never "ear-hurting". The mids/vocals are not so warm like in the Revo, but are still near and present. The basses are actually surprising for something so little. They are not vibrant like the Fidelio, but still strong and punchy enough to make you move the head while listening to your favorite Techno theme, especially after some EQ. The soundstage is not thrilling, but is quite ok for such a small and on-ear headphone. The detail is also quite good. You can turn them on and off very quickly due to the analogical lever. They have got voice prompts which tell you "connecting to...", the state of the battery, and more. You can connect them to two devices at same time! This means, you can listen to music on your PC, and still be able to receive a phone call from your mobile phone. The music on the PC is automatically stopped when you receive a call, but on my experience you still have to close the music player on the PC or there are interferences. Occasionally I even had to disconnect the Headphones from the PC to avoid clips while talking. Not a big deal. After all, it's an exclusive extra. But it should be improved with a new firmware. Firmware can be updated via USB Nice semi-rigid carrying case CONS: one single button to pause the music and go to the next/previous track. Not the best solution. Three clicks for the previous track is a bit annoying. They have no APTX. I am convinced that the APTX would give them more detail. They require a mini jack if you want to use them with a cable. The cable is anyway included. The speakers cannot turn 90° in flat position. This allow the Bose to fold smaller in the pocket of your jacket, but makes them thicker than the Fidelio in a backpack, especially once in their carrying case. The carrying case also compresses them a bit. If you leave them in the case for some days you will find that the soft pads are pressed. Do not panic, it is memory foam, give them a while and they come back normal. Anyway, Bose, this should be improved. The two LED on the back of the right speaker cannot be disabled, but at least do not blink. They are expensive. Philips Fidelio M1BT: PROS: They look very good. Elegant. And although bigger than the Bose, still discrete enough. The buttons are practical: a click on the right speaker to pause/resume. A lever for volume up/down. A click on the lever for the next track, two for the previous track. They fit tightly and are still comfortable enough. The overall sound is surprisingly good, actually excellent. A bit warmer and punchy than the Bose, and still very well balanced. The Highs were crispier and more detailed, just more balanced by the warm mids and vibrant bass, so that on a first listening they do not stand out as much as on the Bose. The mids are very nice, warm and soft. The basses are wonderful. They are warm and vibrant. The best among these five Headphones. It is not a matter of quantity but of quality. I can say so: the Bose and the Revo can make you move the head, but only the Fidelio make you smile when the bass line comes... Specially the Sub-Bass ist the best among all BT Headphones I've tested, close to the one of the UE9000, with a wonderful warm gentle rumble, but also with enough Punch. The Soundstage is better than in the Bose, making them sound a bit more spacious and open, a bit less "right near the ear". They are also more detailed than the Bose, probably thanks to the APTX (Unfortunately I could not test them without APTX). CONS: Simple soft bag instead of a carrying case. There is no chance that you can put them quickly in the bag without taking the bag off the backpack first. Blinking led on the right speaker, which cannot be deactivated Not foldable (but the speakers can be turned of 90° making them at least thinner than the Bose). I just cannot imagine a valid reason to make bluetooth headphones which are not foldable, but well, nothing is perfect. TOO slow to turn off (very long click needed). This is annoying. Often I thought that I had already turned them off, and they were still on. Cheaper than the Bose but still not exactly cheap, and the new model (M2BT), which adds NTFC and supposedly goes even deeper in the bass frequencies, costs as much as the Bose. EDIT: a quick note about the Fidelio M2BT: it is the same as the M1BT, plus NFC, Multipoint, softer Ear-pads, different color (black over dark blue), different material for the head-band (textile instead of leather), a slightly improved Soundstage due to a different DSP, and a wider Frequency response which is not clearly noticeable on a first listening because it goes way beyond the frequencies we can normally ear. Still, this wider frequencies somehow indirectly improves the sound, giving some more sub-bass and more clarity in the highs. One negative aspect of the M2BT is that on some units the Multipoint causes connectivity problems. In this case anyway, differently than for the Bose, they can be solved resetting the Headphones a couple of times. So, why did the other three lose the competition? JABRA REVO WIRELESS They are beautiful, I liked their mix of discrete Olive and lively subtle Orange lines. But I prefer the Bose for discretion and the Fidelio for elegance. They sound warm, yes, but somehow a bit muffled. Probably because they lack highs and a bit upper mids. With some EQ and a bit of Reverb this improves, but they never sounded lively and open enough to me, having tried the other ones which sound brighter. They've got less punch than the Fidelio on the bass, more or less on pair with the Bose. With maybe (and I liked this) a tiny bit more rumble than the Bose. To give you an idea, I enjoyed more watching a film with the Revo than with the Bose, because the Revo had more this warm rumble effect of cinema speakers. The touch controls are cool but also a pain in the A. EVERY SINGLE TIME that I wanted to reach the central button to pause the music I finished turning the volume up or down. Same story for changing track. The bag is a joke. Period. They are a bit more comfortable than the Fidelio on long-term, but do not fit tight enough to do fitness. They have got NFC, yes, but no APTX. If you really need NFC (but, why?) you could have a look to the new Fidelio M2BT. The improvement given by the Dolby App is only while using that App as a music player (which has got no folder browser. I do not know you, but I like to organize my music in folders), and it does not bring the Revo to the level of the Fidelio for soundstage and detail, or of the Bose for freshness and balance. They have a wonderful orange cable covered in Fabric, with a Mic to use them as Headset also in cable mode. This is, I must admit, a nice point. I really liked the cable :D Sennheiser MM400-x: they look EXTREMELY AWFUL and make your head seem like a Rugby Ball in horizontal position like the kid of Family Guy. They sound sterile. Boring. The sound is quite detailed (APTX), clear, and fresh, even if with not much soundstage. But it is "cold", unemotional. And it completely lacks punch. Hearing Techno with them is like reading a recipe when you are hungry. They are the more portable, and have a removable battery. This means, you can buy an extra battery and be sure to never stay out of charge. The buttons are practical. The carrying case too. They are very light and comfortable, and still tight enough to do fitness. The good is that at least in EU you can find them cheaper than any of the others if you buy them from the Outlet of Sennheiser. 109 Euro!!! Last and least, Sony MDR-10RBT: They look cheap. The "silver" plastic is very bad taste. They are also too big to go around. They are Around the Ear, which makes them the most comfortable of the five on long term, and also gives them a good Soundstage, although for some reason the sound of these Sony tends to come from behind. This is for me very disturbing. The sound should come mostly from the front, or from everywhere like if you are in the middle. Also, they do not fit tightly enough, and according to how you move your head they leak sound and you lose basses. The overall sound is dark and dull. Too much upper bass and low mid. Bass is relatively strong but muffled, not lively, not clean. They have APTX, but Sony ships them with the APTX disabled as default. To enable it you must press a combination of buttons till the led blinks three times. In my tests the led did not blink the way Sony declared, and I could only confirm the APTX via notifications on my Phone. The best thing on these headphones is the carrying bag. Robust, a bit rigid, you can manage to slip the headphones in the bag in the middle of a crowded backpack. Another good thing on the Sony are the buttons. Two buttons for the volume, one lever for pause/next track/previous track. IMO the best solution together with the five buttons of the Sennheiser. So..., making a list: Overall Sound: 1) Fidelio 2) Bose 3) Revo 4) Sennheiser 5) Sony Basses: 1) Fidelio 2) Bose and Revo 3) Sony (n°1 for quantity, n°5 for quality) 4) Sennheiser Detail and Soundstage: 1) Fidelio 2) Bose and Sennheiser 3) Sony (would be at the first place for Room if the sound would not come from behind) 4) Revo Portability: 1) Sennheiser 2) Bose 3) Fidelio 4) Sony and Revo (Sony because of the better bag and flat turning speakers even if bigger dimensions, Revo because foldable). Look: 1) Bose and Fidelio 2) Revo 3) Sony 4) no. Sorry. Sennheiser just NO. The designer should be ashamed... Battery: 1) Sony and Bose (more or less 15 hours) 2) Fidelio, Jabra and Sennheiser (more or less 10 Hours, with Sennheiser giving the chance to buy an extra battery as reserve) Comfort: 1) Sony (because Around the Ear) 2) Bose and Sennheiser 3) Revo and Fidelio (specially the new M2BT) Bluetooth Range: 1) Bose and Sony 2) Fidelio and Revo 3) Sennheiser Functions: 1) Bose and Fidelio (clear winners for the double connectivity) Then the others are more or less the same, each with little pros and cons. EDIT: In the last months I have tested many more Headphones (more than 30). Some of them portable enough to be in this review. But I just cannot make such a huge review, so I have opened a Thread on Head-Fi, which actually became very successful. It is called "Huge Comparison of [almost] all the best Bluetooth Headphones". If you visit us there, we will be pleased to help you finding the right BT Headphone for you. Here I can only say that my favourite "portable BT Headphone" is now the AKG Y45BT.

Great sunding and at first seemingly well built, but earpiece and headband materials deteriorate over time
These were great for the first year or two. The sound quality is fantastic, they are comfortable to wear, and the bluetooth support is very stable and easy to switch between devices. I used these regularly for music, podcasts, and calling. In spite of being over-ear they blocked a lot of outside noise too. The problem is the materials used don't last. The soft ear pads and headband are made out some cloth with a coating on it, and it doesn't hold up. I've cared for these well, always putting them in their case when transporting, never leaving them in the sun, never getting them wet. And yet after about a year the plush material started to fray, the coating flaking off. After another 6 moths the base cloth itself started to fray. Now they look like garbage and leave flakes of black plastic all over me when using them. The sound is still great and the base build is solid (no issues after 3 years) but the finishing materials that feel so plush at first just aren't built to last.

Bose over Beats
I purchased the Beats Solo 2 and this Bose On-ear wireless at the same time to see which one I liked. Bose was a clear winner for me. The Beats headset was really snug and I could see it being uncomfortable with long time wear. Also the Bose is significantly lighter than the Beats. I tried out the Bluetooth and it works very well. I was able to leave my phone in one room and walk all over my apartment into other rooms while talking on the phone clearly. I like the sound better on the Bose as well, vocals are more crisper. I have small ears and had trouble with earbuds fitting properly and I'm glad to find a set of headphones that sit comfortably on my ears. I also tried the around-ear bose wireless and they were nice too, but too large for my head, i can see the around-ear headphones blocking out more environmental noise though. These on-ear Bose headphones do a great job for me, looking forward to traveling with these.

Limited Life
They worked fine until the ear cushion came apart. The replacement from Bose is IMPOSSIBLE to fit to the headphone. So you end up with a headphone that cannot be worn. Bose was absolutely no assistance. You cannot mail the earphones in to be repaired, and their only solution was for me to drive two hours from where I live to a Bose store, where someone "might" be able to assist. Do not waste your money. Look elsewhere.

Best headphones I've owned-best I've tested
Best headphones I've owned, best I've tested. I prefer these Bose headsets over the Beats headphones. But if you like pop music, beats might have better ranges for pop imo. I listen to orchestral/symphony type music. The exterior audio reduction is good. I'd say wearing these will reduce outside noise by ~50%. Much to her dismay, I can't hear my wife when I'm listening to the audio with these headphones. The audio quality is very good. Good depth and range. Good bass. I do have a complaints about the microphone. I presume it to be a power saving function, but the microphone turns completely off if you are not speaking or if you are in a quiet area. So, if your using a PC/Mac, the microphone will have to reconnect to the application every time you speak. Thus, it doesn't work for telecommunication programs like Avaya. Secondly, there is periodic popping with odd noise frequencies, such as the volume up/down on noise on a mac. This seems to only occur in some circumstances which I've yet to identify. But it doesn't happen a whole lot. The battery life is excellent, I have to say it exceeds expectations. Another thing to note is that the headband is not easy to clean when it gets soiled, so be sure to wipe it down when possible. Overall, these are comfortable and portable with excellent build and audio quality.

In few words: one of the best mixes of portability and sound quality in a Bluetooth Headphone at the present moment.
I've spent a long time in the following comparison, so I decided to write the results, to make other people save the time I've "lost" :) I was looking for a small, portable, good looking and good sounding On-Ear or "mini Around the Ear" Bluetooth Headphones to use for music on the Bus and while I do Fitness, and eventually at home, so I have bought a few ones to compare. I've compared: Sennheiser MM400-X Jabra Revo Wireless Bose Soundlink On-Ear Philips Fidelio M1BT Sony MDR-10RBT = All the best and portable enough Bluetooth headphones available at the moment. I've compared them for many weeks, with my Xperia Z1 Compact (APTX support) + Neutron as Music Player, and with my PC (which gets Bluetooth+APTX through an Azio BTD-V401 Dongle and a Sennheiser BTD 500 Dongle, which I also wanted to compare. See my other reviews for that. Or simply avoid the Azio!) + MusicBee as player. I've used many different musical genres, mostly MP3 of different qualities, some Flac, and some CDs. I've tested each headphone at first without EQ, then with EQ to see how much can their lacks and excesses be compensated with EQ. Very quickly I understood that the Bose and the Philips were clear winners. It was more difficult, to be honest, to chose between them two. Although the Fidelio sounded better, with more detail and soundstage, crispier highs, and a wonderful fat vibrant bass, the Bose also sounded very good and had other advantages. I initially declared Bose as winner, because of their better portability, better comfort, slightly better range, and their ability to connect with two devices at same time (= Multipoint). But somehow I have then missed the Fidelio, so when the M2BT came out here in EU, I decided to try them. And I just could not let them go anymore. Not only they even slightly improved the original sound of the M1BT, but also added Multipoint, NFC, and softer ear-pads. The Bose are still more comfortable and more portable and have some other advantages, and sound very good, but in this moment they are for me N°2 for "best mix of portability and sound", and one of the best overall among more than 20 BT Headphones tested. Not bad at all. EDIT: it seems that the Bose Soundlink On-Ear have compatibility problems with iOS devices, which cause intermittent connectivity and skipping music. It is not clear to me if this problem happens always to all iOS users or just on some units, but given this risk I would suggest to buy them only where you can return them in case of problems.

Limited Life
They worked fine until the ear cushion came apart. The replacement from Bose is IMPOSSIBLE to fit to the headphone. So you end up with a headphone that cannot be worn. Bose was absolutely no assistance. You cannot mail the earphones in to be repaired, and their only solution was for me to drive two hours from where I live to a Bose store, where someone "might" be able to assist. Do not waste your money. Look elsewhere.

Best headphones I've owned-best I've tested
Best headphones I've owned, best I've tested. I prefer these Bose headsets over the Beats headphones. But if you like pop music, beats might have better ranges for pop imo. I listen to orchestral/symphony type music. The exterior audio reduction is good. I'd say wearing these will reduce outside noise by ~50%. Much to her dismay, I can't hear my wife when I'm listening to the audio with these headphones. The audio quality is very good. Good depth and range. Good bass. I do have a complaints about the microphone. I presume it to be a power saving function, but the microphone turns completely off if you are not speaking or if you are in a quiet area. So, if your using a PC/Mac, the microphone will have to reconnect to the application every time you speak. Thus, it doesn't work for telecommunication programs like Avaya. Secondly, there is periodic popping with odd noise frequencies, such as the volume up/down on noise on a mac. This seems to only occur in some circumstances which I've yet to identify. But it doesn't happen a whole lot. The battery life is excellent, I have to say it exceeds expectations. Another thing to note is that the headband is not easy to clean when it gets soiled, so be sure to wipe it down when possible. Overall, these are comfortable and portable with excellent build and audio quality.
