Expert review

The Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless II headphones are premium-priced over-ear wireless headphones. There's also a detachable cable in the box should your battery fail, or you don't want to listen wirelessly. We gave these headphones a listen to see how they fare.

What's included:
  • Pros and cons
  • What are they?
  • How do they sound?
  • What are they like to live with?
  • Is Bose a good brand?
  • Is there anything I should watch out for?
  • Is there anything I should know?
  • Should I buy them?
