Overview: The Bose AE2w
Bluetooth wireless headphones let you listen to music, or watch movies and
videos, without being tethered by a cord to the source device. The headphone's
around-the-ear design and TriPort technology lets you hear smoother audio throughout the entire
frequency range from full lows to clear highs. The Bose AE2w audio headphones can
enhance your listening experience at home and on the go from your favorite audio
sources, including your portable digital music player and laptop computer.
Bluetooth Technology: The built-in Bluetooth technology lets
you wirelessly make and receive phone calls from your Bluetooth-enabled phone.
You can also listen to music from a Bluetooth-enabled audio device. The wireless
operating range is approximately 33 feet. The AE2w headphones include the
following profiles: HSP 1.1, HFP 1.5, A2DP 1.2, and AVRCP 1.4.
TriPort Acoustic Structure: The AE2w headphones,
with the proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure, allow you to enjoy
deeper, richer lows from a compact headphone design. Active equalization in the
control module also provides improved sound quality.
Around-Ear Headphone Design: The AE2w headphones feature a
comfortable around-ear fit with pivoting, angled earcups. The Bose AE2w
headphones feature soft cushions that provide an acoustic seal between the
headphones and your head, enhancing both performance and comfort. The
redesigned ear cushions feature softer materials for hours of comfortable
Padded Adjustable Headband: The adjustable, cushioned headband has
been redesigned to distribute weight more evenly across the top of the head. The
sturdy design features soft cushion for added comfort.
The adjustable headband allows approximately three inches of adjustment in length.
Control Module: The control module, found on the left earcup,
lets you turn the unit on and off, and control volume and playback. It also
contains a microphone for making phone calls, or talk to voice-recognition apps,
such as Siri and Google Search. The Multifunction Button operates functions such
as play/pause and track controls for music and video, plus switches between
calls and other audio. It has LED and audio indicators for power, battery life,
and Bluetooth connection status. The control module is removable, allowing you
to use the headphones with the supplied audio cable.
Battery: The control module is powered by a Lithium-ion
polymer rechargeable battery. The battery is charged in approximately 3 hours
via the supplied 3' USB charging cable. A fully charged battery provides about 7
hours of operating time and 200 hours of standby time.
When you want to save battery power, or the battery is exhausted, you
can remove the control module and use the AE2w as a wired headphone. The
included 68" audio cable connects to the left earcup using the same 2.5mm
sub-mini jack as the control module. The 1-sided design gives you greater freedom of
movement and less tangling. The audio cable is terminated with a 3.5mm
mini-plug. No 1/4" plug adapter is included.
Fold-Flat Design: The AE2w's earcups can rotate to fold flat,
allowing for easy storage and transport in the included cloth carry pouch.
