If you thought the only headphones you could get from Bose were expensive noise-cancelling models, think again. The AE2 doesn't include any noise-cancellation functionality, but it does offer up good sound at a surprisingly affordable price. The AE2 is also one of the lightest over-ear models around, making it extremely comfortable for long listening sessions. If you like it, and also use an iPhone, the AE2i comes with an inline mic and remote, for about $30 more.
