Bose has revealed its new AE2w
Bluetooth headphones featuring the company's well-regarded TriPort audio technology. Interestingly although compatible with a wide range of Bluetooth devices, the Bose website seems to be targeting the headphones at Apple users, and iPad users in particular. The design of the AE2w is also notable for a control module that protrudes from the left side ear cup that incorporates the remote control functions, as well as a microphone for making and receiving phone calls.
Bose says the AE2w will work up to 30 feet away from the device that is paired with, while its built-in rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are good for up to 200 hours of stand-by time, or up to 7 hours on the go. The AE2w's can also be paired with up two devices simultaneously, allowing a user to watch a movie on their tablet, while being able to interrupt the session and take a call at the same time. The Bluetooth control module also includes LED and audio indicators to provide information on power, battery life and Bluetooth connections.
The Bose AE2w Bluetooth headphones are retailing for $250 and can be purchased directly through its online store. A limited offer of free shipping is currently available at the time of writing.
