What do you think of Bose headphones/speakers?

I see audiophiles never recommending Bose anywhere on forums . I am not an audiophile , but I appreciate quality sound to an extent, and I listen to Bose headphones/earphones and am usually blown away every time. Why don't most audiophiles think Bose sounds great? I am not sure if this is an accurate assumption, but enlighten me either way.
