I received my bose headphones as a gift and was very pleased with the quality of sound they produce.  I was also very happy that I could have them turned up way past what should be safe for my ears without a lot of noise escaping to the people around me.  I hate to be that guy in the gym where everyone else can hear my music while my headphones are in my ears. 

The cord length was also surprising not too long or too short.  I'm a pretty tall guy and normally carry my phone in my shorts pocket at the gym and the cord for the headphones reaches from my ears to my pocket with enough space to move without a lot of slack to get caught on the equipment or my hands when moving. 

the design of the ear buds is also very nice and fit into my ears very comfortablly.  on the rare occassion that the cord for the headphones does get caught in something and the buds are pulled from ears they don't pull and come out easily, without the pulling or popping that can happen with other ear bud style headphones. 

The one flaw is the rubber comfort pieces that slide onto the ear buds.  They are not attached very securely and one trip through my gym bag and they are missing.  Good news is they work just as well without them.  My set came with an additional pair and a great carrying case which I'm sure if I had used the case I wouldn't have lost the comfort pieces.

All in all a great product, which I wish I had taken better care of.

I've owned the Bose Triports for about a year.  The fit is fairly comfortable - much more than Shures - and they've proven to be durable.  The package has three sizes of tips and if you have small ear canals you might have difficulty getting even the smallest tip to give you a good seal.  If you can achieve a good seal, noise isolation is excellent.  The cords don't tangle as badly as most earbud cords tend to do.

The audio performance is fair.  The bass is acceptable as are the higher ranges, but midrange seems a bit muddy.  For the price, I had expected much better performance from these buds.  They'd be fine for the casual listener, but the casual listener can also find acceptable buds for much less, such as Sennheisers.  I primarily use these when I'm walking or exercising, as they tend to stay in my ears much better than the other buds I own.  If you jog or work out these would be a good option.

Bose headphones are damn best thing!

By 

from Falls Church, VA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

The bose 42394 consumer headphones is one of the best headphones I have ever had in my entire life. The style of the bose 42394 consumer headphones is great, they are not too big or too small. Plus the ear buds can be adjusted as you want because the white part is removable and can replace it with the other sizes. The bose 42394 consumer headphones have a great sound quality which feels like you are in a live concert and to me that is amazing. The bose 42394 consumer headphones are the most comfortable that you will forget you have them on which is great. People if you need headphones you might want to consider the bose 42394 consumer headphones. If you like big headphones and not small at all then you should not waste any more time in this page and go look for those big headphones you want. But if you like small headphones then these are perfect for you. Buy the bose 42394 consumer headphones today!

Love My Bose

By 

from San Pierre, IN

Comments about Bose Headphones:

I love these little earbuds, easy to take with you anywhere. The sound is remarkable, the cost is fair. However, after wearing them for awhile, they become a little uncomfortable. My ears become a little irritated compared to the over the ear bose head phones I own. It does not stay in my right ear very well. The sound quality is crisp and even the base on it sounds great. Another problem I ran into is that one of the wires came undone right away.

Great Headphones!

By 

from Wernersville, PA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

I recently purchased these because i needed a new pair of headphones for when i am working out. I decided to spend some extra cash on a higher quality headphone and id say it was worth it. The sound quality is outstanding! Not only does the music sound good, but it also blocks out other noise. The only problem i had was the gel fittings that hold it in your ear were either to small or to big so it either fell out of my ear or wouldnt stay in. I guess my ears are abnormally sized... When i'm not working out they dont fall out though.

Another thing i like about these are the overall look of the headphones. I personally think sall of the Bose products look exceptionally clean and sharp. These look like they are expensive high quality headphones and thats pretty much exactly what your getting. I've always loved bose products and these have only made me happier with the company.

Excellent pair of headphones!

Bose headphone are awesome

By 

from Tampa, FL

Comments about Bose Headphones:

When I was walking around different department stores the last few weeks I wondered what I was looking for and then I remembered I was looking for some headphones that were better than any other headphones in the whole universe and I what I came to was that Bose makes the greatest sounding, highest quality, nicest looking headphone that have ever been heard of in the whole entire world, galaxy, and universe. When I bought these perfect awesome headphones I could believe I was still on earth. The sounds is so clear and grand that I felt like I was in another dimension inside a trance traveling through time. I could equate the sound to if they had 3d headphones like they have 3d tvs. That's who amazing it is, even though they're right on your ear it still sound perfectly clear, cuts off all other noise and sounds like a really expensive surround sound stereo system that you would pay a lot of money for.

Bose Headphones: Great, until they die

By 

from Mckinleyville, CA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

My mom gave me Bose Headphones for Christmas last year, they were fantastic at first. The sound they provide is wonderful, but after using them for a couple of months, one of the speakers stopped working, the other followed suit, shortly after. If they were cheaper they'd be worth the couple of months of great sound, but they're just not worth the price.

Bose Consumer Headphones offer great sound and portability

By 

from Brunswick, GA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

I love my Bose Headphones! They are very portable but still have amazing sound. I was surprised at how great they sounded when I first listened to them. They are the best choice of Bose head phones if you plan to use them for exercise, running, etc.

Sound is Fantastic

By 

from Coraopolis, PA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

These headphones are great. Perfect. Especially when I am walking. I don't know how to explain it, but I get to hear what's playing on my ipod in great audio, yet I can hear a car when it is whizzing by.The longer wire is excellent when I am using the headphones at the computer and it is plugged into the tower that sits on the floor. The only reason I give a 4 star rating is that the cost is a little high. Earphones are easily lost, so to buy these is a little extravagant.

Thanks for the great sound of Bose!

You can feel the sound

By 

from Charlton, MA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

Love these earbuds.  I got them as a gift from my husband (I bought them for him first as a gift and when I tried them, I asked for them for my birthday!) and I have been enjoying them.  First off, they are so comfortable to wear, as they come with a few ear cushions to accommodate most sizes.  I can wear them for long periods of time and I barely know they are there.  The sound is incredible, and never distorted the louder the music.   These are worth every penny, I highly recommend them.
