FutureShop.ca: Bose On-Ear Audio Headphones With Fold-Flat Earcups $79.99 (Online Only)

FutureShop.ca: Bose On-Ear Headphones $79.99
This deal has expired! This deal has expired!

Over in the forums, danzerino spotted a nice deal for those who want to upgrade their headphones but don't want to break the bank. For a limited time, the Bose On-Ear Headphones are on sale for $79.99 from $199.95. The item qualifies for free shipping and is available online only.

The reviews have been pretty decent so far. Based on 61 votes, these headphones scored an overall rating of 4.3/5 at FutureShop.ca. While the general consensus is that the headphones deliver full and rich sound quality and are comfortable to wear for a longer period of time, one or two reviewers have cited the base is heavy and overpowering and may not be suitable for some people. Read all the reviews here.

These Bose headphones are currently out of stock at Memory Express (sale price is $129.99), so if you're interested, you might want to place your order at Futureshop.ca to snag the $79.99 price sooner rather than later. The sale ends April 26.

    • Excellent price for well-made headphones! They are great for commuting because they are light and very comfortable, they block out a lot of noise, and their bass-heavy signature sounds good at low volumes on a train or bus. They also come with a hard-sided case. Bose replaced the nylon-covered wire with a plain rubber-coated wire, which is great because it does not fray like the old one.

      If these are going to be your ONLY pair of headphones or if you are using them at home, I'd recommend putting your $80 toward something better. (see head-fi.org among other sites) But for commuting, they're great.

      Bose-haters: move along, there's nothing to see here.

    • Bose are terribly overpriced.
      Everyone loves jumping on the Bose hate-wagon, but you really should do your research before making claims like that.

      Thanks OP. Looks like a good deal! Might just pick these up!

    • Yeah, the OE2 are pretty nice. I own a pair of the original OE sets and they really can pump a lot of sound for the size. Also, the frequency response range is impressive.

    • I used to hate Bose simply because everyone said it's overpriced crap. For that reason I bought Pioneer, Infinity and Sennheiser only.

      Bose came stock on my Infiniti G. I also test drove an Infiniti M with even better Bose system. I love them so much that I bought a pair of Bose IE2, which I also love more than any of my similarly priced Sennheisers.

      Is it overpriced? Yes. Does Bose make crap? Yes, especially those paper-cone systems found in lower-end cars. But they do make some good stuff, good enough for non-audiophiles. For those who are willing to pay, I don't see any problem with it.

    • Hi Folks

      There is another choice currently at Costco. They are noise cancelling and fold down for travel. A tad more expensive- Sony MDRNC60- @ $150.
      I bought them for my son and he loves them and i am considering getting a pair for myself.

      here's a review;

      I bought this like 2 years ago for $99.99 at X'mas from NCIX I believe. I really love it until the arm broken :x

      Is there a good way to fix that kind of situation? Super glue doesn't fix it for me.

    • ^^^ I was just going to say these are not OE2s. Probably same dealy as Costco where they selling the original AE1s for $129.

      I don't like Bose either as their stuff is quite overpriced but at $80 it's quite a decent buy. Too bad I don't find these comfortable at all. The AEs are much more comfortable IMHO.

      And those Monster Beats... Those have gotta be fakes.

    • whats the difference between the OE and OE2 ? I guess the OE2 is the new model ? so if it costs 149$, this price on the OE is maybe normal ?
      and I see that the last comment on the page products is on march 2009, 3 years ago
      Im looking for a good headphone but im not sound fanatic so I dont wanna spend hundreds of $, I didnt even want to spend 80 but why not if the quality is really good.

      They actually are overpriced crap and you don't have the right to ask people what to write and what not to write here!

      This is a discussion board and people like to discuss things and spread the word about products and companies, this is the essence of RFD and you can't change that.
