The Bose On-Ear Headphones are a high end set of headphones with a comfortable on-ear design from one of the most respected names in sound. Like all Bose headphones and headsets, they incorporate the proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure, which delivers full-range tonally balanced audio with deep low notes from lightweight, on-ear headphones. The softly padded earcups contain memory foam that conform to the shape of your ears, and also rotate front-to-back and top-to-bottom - for an enhanced fit that reduces pressure points. These headphones also feature an adjustable headband with up to 3 inches of adjustment in length, fold flat earcups that rotate into the headband for better portability and storage, and a slim protective carrying case for travel. Two detachable audio cables are also included: a 16" cable for close connections, and a standard 43" cable for added reach. Both cables attach to just one ear cup, so there is less tangling than with conventional Y-cables. Fully compatible with portable music players, computers, and home stereos. Total weight with audio cables is 5.2 oz.
