Bose's AE2w adds a Bluetooth module to its comfortable AE2 headphones (alas, you can't buy the module separately). The result is a surprisingly excellent Bluetooth headphone.

The good: The Bose AE2w Bluetooth headphones offer very good sound for Bluetooth, and they're arguably the most comfortable over-the-ear Bluetooth model. The control module is also well designed, with well-placed buttons that can be operated easily by feel alone.
The bad: Pretty pricey; protruding Bluetooth module looks a little strange; volume may not be loud enough for some people, depending on device used and type of file played.
The bottom line: Despite a few question marks and a high price, the AE2w headphones are a very good-sounding Bluetooth pair that's lightweight and very comfortable to wear.
