Great Design; Ergonomic; Cool Carrying Case
High Price; Flat sound that won't amuse a bass-happy listener

Bose is a company that is known to churn out one masterpiece after another when it comes to titillating your earbuds, and this one is no different. Crafted while keeping the simple listener in mind, let's see how this one fares on our scale.
The OE in the name stands for 'on Ear' and the first thing that catches a user's eye, is the storage pouch. A small snazzy (kind of) semi-circular case, which can perfectly cradle the headphones without any hassle. And an added bonus, the headphones twist right at it's neck to collapse and turn into a compact bundle.
Aside from that, the headphones themselves are supra-aural, which means they settle over your ears rather than encapsulate them. This surprisingly doesn't deter it's sound quality, but finding the sweet spot takes a while. Also, a slight nudge leads them to slip off the ear, forcing the user to be careful while wearing them.
Simply put, the OE2 are a semi-professional pair of headphones. They tend to offer a flat tone, which lacks all the oomph and bass pumps that an everyday user may look for. But the pristine clarity that highlights the minutest detail makes this pair perfect for a user who's into audio detailing.
They sound crisp, albeit the supressed muting of the bass might a downer for few. The balance is just right, and the treble is well-balanced throughout. Music lovers will definitely dig this.
The OE2 is a perfect pair of headphone for everyday use and the ergonomic design and carrying case is definitely groundbreaking in terms of usage and portability.
The sound offered by this pair is downright amazing, and wont dishearten a music-aficionado. The lack of bass and oomph will leave a lot to be desired for the party crowd.
The steep price of the headphones is definitely a letdown, but this is a definite investment if you don't want to look for an upgrade for a long time.
