Bose do NOT howl on CW. I use the Bose headsets along with a Heil
Desk mic. 99.9% I listen to CW with them.
They will howl if you loosen them from your ear and the conditions
are right for feedback. They do have a mic input on the side of them
and you will get feedback if your volume is excessive and again, you
pull them off your ears.
In normal operation they have never once howled if what you're
talking about is feedback howl.
