I just ran this through my Steelseries headset, actually handled it fairly well surprisingly, lol.
Time to bust out the AKG k430's...

Nothing wrong with Bose, except their pricepoint. If they sold their gear at a more reasonable pricepoint I doubt many would be slating them quite as much as they are.
While I realize this is a pretty old thread, I'm amazed at how many people came in to post that these are terrible or that x headphones are better without ever hearing them, and then act like people who buy them are uninformed idiots when those who bash without listening are coming to equally uninformed assumptions
