Bose head phones suck but there speakers are Nice. MY camaro has a BOSE system in it, Though i gutted all the rear speakers not enough bass and it Didn't blend in the sound with my subs. So i only have Bose door speakers but they sound great.

I do feel that after so many years of research that they should have al of their !t in one sock and start dropping the prices. I have no problem with their products. I've had a couple pairs of their speakers over 10 years and they still sing to me.
Your opinion is 100% biased towards Bose. Judging by your post I'm going to assume that you have never listened to a different brand, I suggest you do so. Sennheiser, Grado and Beyerdynamic just to name a few make headphones leave Bose wayyy behind.

Car Bose is worse if anything, your post made me laugh aloud. You are probably referring to some stock Bose system that is just flat out bad. You just see the brand Bose on the grills and you are like, "damn, these sound great!" Sorry.

I completely agree. The bose headphones sounded bland in comparison to others i've heard.


Off topic but what do you guys have to say about the creative aurvana xfi headphones? I tried them at the apple store but idk they just didn't wow me.
