Comfort, Convenience, and Amazing Wireless Sound  

Your search for a wireless headphone loaded with great audio, superior comfort, and versatile performance is officially over. The Bose SoundLink II Around-Ear Wireless Headphones offers an exceptional package of functionality and user friendly features, paired with the kind of world-class sound that’s expected from a name like Bose. 

Wireless Freedom 

Break free from the tether of a wire and let SoundLink II treat you to great sounding Bluetooth wireless performance.  Pairing devices is made easy with multi-language voice prompts guiding the way.  If a device is NFC capable (iOS excluded), then all you need to do is tap it on the headphone’s earcup and you’ll be up and running immediately.  It’s that simple! Multilink capability allows you to seamlessly switch between multiple Bluetooth connections, eliminating the hassle of being restricted to using a singular device.  

Rich Sound 

Just because SoundLink II is wireless doesn’t mean it sacrifices sound quality in the name of convenience.  This headphone is all about making your music sound exceptional.  Whether you like to listen to your music loud or on the softer side, SoundLink II delivers a balanced and full-bodied performance at any volume level.  Your ears will simply love it. 

Integrated Controls 

Answer calls, play music, and switch between devices by using the convenient on-ear button controls.  The controls are intuitive and easy to operate simply by feel, keeping you moving with quick and hassle-free performance.  

Crystal Clear Calls 

Advanced onboard dual-microphones guarantee that your voice will always sound clear and natural, even when its windy.  Bose’s streamlined design incorporates the microphones into a single earcup, keeping them inconspicuous and out of the way. 

Luxurious Comfort 

Bose designed the SoundLink II with user comfort in mind.  Plush soft-touch surfaces on the replaceable earcups and headband make for a luxurious fit, while its overall light weight (7 ounces) means you can wear SoundLink II comfortably for hours.  You’ll almost forget it’s even on your head. 

Long Battery Life 

A simple three-hour charge delivers 15 hours of solid wireless performance.  For those times that you need a power boost, a 15 minute “quick charge” will inject SoundLink II’s battery with two additional hours of life.  Bose also includes a headphone cable that allows SoundLink II to be used without a charged battery.  

Constructed to Be Tough 

SoundLink II’s rugged construction includes impact-resistant materials and corrosion-resistant stainless steel that can take a beating and tackle the rigors of an active lifestyle.  To expedite storage, its swivel earcups fold flat allowing the headphone to fit safely in an included protective carry case.  

Free App 

The free Bose Connect App (Android and iOS) is loaded with usability features that allow you to quickly control volume, switch between Bluetooth devices, monitor battery life, set an auto-timer and more.  In addition, it will keep SoundLink II’s software up-to-date, making sure you’re always getting the most out of your headphones.

Buy this headset
I have been looking for a wireless bluetooth headset for quite some time. This is an excellent unit as far as comfort, quality and sound isolation go. I didn't even think about the cell phone use but it was a really nice surprise. I wanted to use it with my iPhone for music but the phone call functions are great. I look forward to the day when Bose makes this unit with true noise cancelling but the over the ear pads block out a lot of noise, example: my diesel tractor. I use it with my iMac, iPad as well as my iPhone. Easy to link and great functionality.

Great sound, bluetooth is so easy to set up!
I bought these headphones a few weeks ago after doing extensive research on great bluetooth headphones. While Beats Studio Wireless and Bose SoundsLink are neck and neck in most ratings, Bose is the clear winner on 3 of the most important factors; quality of construction, balanced sound and customer service! First - The basic around the ear headphone construction of Bose Headphones hasn't changed over the years and there is a reason for that - they are built to last. I still have my QuietComfort 2 headphones from 2006. Back then the headphones came with a CD player! The point is those headphones look brand new and I have used them when mowing the lawn, snowplowing the driveway - you name it. They have been run through the mill and they are strong. The only thing I replaced is the soft ear cups on the Qc2 and the headphone cord so I could control volume (didn't have that integration in 2006). Bose products are built to last - they understand that you are purchasing their products for life (your life). So ordering new ear pads is expected and simple to do! Great customer service should always be simple. So when I received my SoundLink headphones, I notices the same strong construction and immediately knew I made the right purchase. Yes, they are lighter and more stylish but the same design elements are there. Now let's get to the bluetooth set up. This is so easy for the simple fact that the headphones speak to you to tell you when you are connected. Once they are set up you just push the switch upward to toggle between devices - that's it! Here's the best part, if you have two phones connected like I do, the headphones will automatically connect to the phone with the call coming in. For example, I was listening to music on phone 1 when a call came in on phone 2. The headphones stopped the music (phone 1) and then announced a call was coming in on phone 2 so I answered it. When the call ended, the headphones announced "call ended" and then switched back to the music on phone 1 - all automatically. The quality of phone calls is wild - they have found a way to combine the sounds of the environment you are in (walking down the street, etc.) while you are talking so you speak naturally and don't strain. I can't explain it but it works to perfection. Finally to the sound. Bose is known for balanced sound. These headphones deliver, a great natural sound - they won't make your ear drums bleed but they hit all the lows and highs. They are not for the bass heads but if you listen to a diverse range of music, balanced sound is what you want. Let me end with this. These are not active noise cancelling but don't get fooled by Beats offering that feature. Over the ear phones are great for noise cancelling and unless you are working on the runway of an airport you will be fine. Take it from someone that did vast amounts of research on this subject and then reached the smartest conclusion - go with the brand that has the world's best reputation for creating big sounds in small packages - Bose. PS - if you live in a cold weather state these headphones are the best substitute for ear muffs!

Nothing Better!
Nothing personal Bose but the Soundlink II's are the best headphones on the market period. I've tried the QC35 and since I don't wear my headphones just for noise canceling, those are overkill. If you want excellent headphones that have a wide range and exceptional sound, the Soundlink is the ONE!

excellent headphones. Surpasses beats studio
I had the beats studio headphones but was getting tired of how uncomfortable they feel after you have worn them for about an hour. So decided to get these Bose headphones. WOW!!! I can have these on all day without feeling any discomfort. Sound is off the chart and the battery life is impressive. I have them on all day in the library 2 days in a row and the battery is still at 50% or more. Great!!

Great battery life ! Great sound! I love taking them out to skateboard or bike. One time I biked 6 hours at once and these headphones still had plenty of power. I would recommend the dark pair if you are active.

True value for money.. SOUND AT ITS BEST!
I go way back with Bose, this new Soundlink Headphones are my 5th product from Bose. I pre-ordered it the very same day it was released and got it within a few days. Well, to talk about this new product, I would like to thank Bose for what they have done. These headphone are insanely comfortable, light and fits perfectly around your head, I tried shaking my head while wearing them and surprisingly they didn't come off. Now to talk about what is Bose best known for, the "sound quality" & man oh man they have done a marvelous work on this one. These headphones are absolutely meant to deliver you the sound as it was recorded! You will feel like you are hearing it live. These headphones don't modulate the sound in any way, they just give it to you just the way it is, each and every piece of sound, vocals and even the slightest background instrument, clear and crisp! Some of you might find that it slightly lacks that extra bass and thump, but seriously we are talking about quality here and not quantity, these are sufficiently loud and has ample bass and above all, Bose won't want their customer to go deaf...right? To compare these headphones with Beats Solo Wireless and Beats Studio Wireless, 1st of all these are $20 cheaper than the Solo and about $100 cheaper than the Studio! Beats obviously is a bit louder and has a better bass, but again we are talking about sound quality here. I do love Beats for their shiny texture and fancy colors, I wish Bose would have done something more with the colors, but like I know, Bose is more about being sober than fancy. To talk about portability, Beats fold better than these new headphones. These headphones have awesome compatibility, it pairs beautifully with all my devices without any glitch or lag. The battery life is also good and the voice prompt feature tells you how much more juice is left in your cans! The microphone and the calling feature is excellent as well, my friends at the other end couldn't tell the difference anyhow. I'm proudly attached with the Bose legacy & I strongly recommend this product to all you music lovers out there! Thank You.

Best Bluetooth Headphones I own
Just received these, specifically the 2nd gen; not sure if the other reviews were for 1st gen or not. The headphones are amazing, crystal clear and expected Bose quality throughout. I own a pair of Harman Kardon Bluetooth headphones and am plagued by an audio delay when watching video (seconds out of sync), the *new* Bose do not have this issue and are in perfect sync with video. The best feature so far is the ability to seamlessly switch between 2 devices, very useful when switch from the iPad to the iTouch; both can be on and swapped effortlessly. The sound is incredible and the headphones are very comfortable, light weight but well made. The case is a nice extra as everything needed fits neatly inside and it is not bulky, very easy to remove and replace the headphones. Overall I am very impressed with the features/functions and will be looking forward to a long useful life for them

I am very happy with these SoundLink II Bluetooth headphones. The sound is wonderful. It is light weight and comfortable. Paired and work well with all of my devices. I had no issue paring with my iPhone. But had issue with my Windows 10 devices. After I've updated the Bluetooth drivers for Windows 10, the SoundLink II paired and worked flawlessly. I am very happy with my purchase, great quality product, great sound. Two thumbs up.
