To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Have been 2 hours trying to get the cushions on. The first took over 30 minutes of very careful trying. During that time the inner cover for the foam became detached. I have been an hour and a half and am finding it impossible to get the cushion on. It is looking decidedly stretched but still no luck. Watch the video and see how simple it looks. As for sound I can't tell. I have finally managed to get the other in place, another 45 minutes. The cushions are nowhere near as comfortable as the originals and very quickly have become uncomfortably hot. The sound Ok. How I wish I had gone for the expensive Bose models.
Don't bother paying the premium. You are guaranteed to damage at least the first cushion if this is your first install. The seam between the cushion and the rubber ring is more fragile than the product claims. Buy multiple cheaper cushions instead for the same price.
Arrived very quick, unfortunately the quality is poor. One of the cushions was already split before even removing it from the packaging. The split is at the weak point where nearly all these type of cushions go.....you just don't expect a brand new item to fail like this. I will be returning these as defective and won't be getting this brand again. I think the higher priced original Bose items may be worth the extra money after all!
They tore within 3 weeks. Essentially they started to separate from the rubber ring and the foam cushion itself. Additionally there was very little packaging when it arrived. It was just a tiny ziplock bag. This is not so much of an issue for me, but I should have be wary of this as sometimes it can be a sign of cheap knockoffs. There is also this annoying hard round plastic bit on the back that holds the shape for transit but it is VERY hard to get out. You can easily tear the cushion when removing this bit of hard plastic. There are videos on Youtube that will help teach you how to install the cushions. You absolutely must watch these to install the cushions. I tore my first pair thinking I couldt figure this out on my own. Like I mentioned before, after 3 weeks of lite use, the foam started to seprate from the rubber rign that sits behind the plastic lip of the headphone itself. I thought it was just a one off and it was small enough to not be so noticeable, but the other side started doing the same thing within days. Highly disapointed. I would strongly suggest just buying directly from BOSE. for £23 including shipping.
I wiped them off after using them on the second day I got them and the center mesh part tore up on one of them. Ugh!!! I just got them and am not looking to buy more at this time since I may be getting new headphones soon. In the meantime it's gorilla glue to the rescue.
