In the rest the models of this series are completely identical, which allows using any of them with equal success. Also OE2 are equipped with a stereo adapter that allows you to connect the device to your home audio system. The entire series of headphones is equipped with proprietary technology TriPort, which allows you to achieve incredibly clear and detailed sound of your favorite tracklist with a small mass of the device.

Traditionally, the design of Bose headphones is made in a smooth, calm manner, which, by the way, emphasizes the peculiarity of its sound.
The product is completed with high-quality plastic, from which are made light gray rims of the ear-cups, stylized for aluminum.
The main part of the headband is made, depending on the model, in a white or black color palette. The headband is trimmed from above with real leather, inside – a cloth and can be adjusted along the length by means of steel strips with guides and comb comb.
The ear pads are made from foam with a “memory effect”, which ensures a tight fit of the ears, fixing their shape without excessive pressure on the head.

This design allows you to optimize low frequencies so that you do not have to use the artificial low-frequency amplification feature of most portable devices.
