Bose TriPort review: Bose TriPort

  • 1

CNET Editors' Rating

3.5 stars Very good
Review Date:

The Good Lightweight and comfortable design; sealed ear cups isolate wearer from ambient noise.

The Bad Headphones don't fold up for storage; dual-corded design.

The Bottom Line This TriPort set is the poor man's QuietComfort 2.

Bose TriPort (Glacier Blue)

Editor's note: The product reviewed here is no longer produced. It's been replaced by the second-generation model, the Bose AE2.

Bose's $150 TriPort headphones have been around for a while, but in light of the popularity of the company's twice-as-expensive QuietComfort 2 noise-canceling 'phones, we wanted to review this model for comparison's sake.
