Great for travelling and exercising

By 

from USA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

Bose headphones are my favorite because of their high quality. This product is not different. The sound is clear and you really hear all the instrumentals and subtle details. I like the plastic rings on the headphones so that the buds do not drop out when you're on the move (running or jogging)

Great headphones for active people!

Comments about Bose Headphones:

The Bose IE2 Audio Headphones are ideal for working out and sound amazing. They do not block out ambient noise, so don't expect them to. I like the way they fit. One of my silicone ear flappy things ripped, so handle with care.

Great quality product

By 

from USA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

These headphones are incredible. The sound quality is amazing and the overall quality of the product is there as well. I spent years buying cheap headphones that would only last a few months if I was lucky. So, I finally decided to break down and I bought these and they've made all the difference. I use these all the time for both listening to music and making calls and they're perfect for both.
I've used them for everything and with their crazy looking tips it makes them wearable even when running because they contour to your inner ear and cause them to comfortably sit snug in your ear. The button remote on the actual headphones is a nice added bonus which makes it easy to pause your music or answer/hang up a call and also adjust the volume of whatever it is you are listening to.
I would highly recommend to anyone who listens to music regularly or makes calls and wants the ease of a hands free conversation.

Sound Quality
The sound quality is incredible, there is an obvious difference between the quality of these versus a cheaper headphone set.

Comfort
The ear tips are a little weird to get used to at first, but after some use I've come to really like the way they fit in my ear.

Durability
I use these daily and they've lasted for almost 2 years and they still look like I just bought them.

One of the best, comparable to other high-end earbuds

Comments about Bose Headphones:

The Bose IE2 headphones come with three sets of fitters, a waranty, and the headphones themselves. The Bose IE2's fit perfectly making it very difficult for the world to pull it out of your ears. It comes with a very nice looking black and white design, triumphing over Beats earbuds. I have not had any problems with these headphones. The rubber that surrounds the wire is very bendy, making it hard to break. I still use it up to date with my iPod touch. The sound quality is better than competitors' earbuds.

Sound Quality
HD, need I say more? The bass is excellent, and the headphones can certainly support all kinds of notes. Before using these to listen to my music, I was totally deaf to what the music actually sounded like. After I used these, I wondered why I hadn't bought them earlier.

Comfort
Fits inside anybody's ears perfectly, due to the 3 different size fitters. (included)

Design
Very sleek and elegant design, including the pattern. In my opinion, these are the best looking headphones on the market.

Durability
Very durable. I washed it with my laundry once, and it still worked.

Comments about Bose Headphones:

I purchased these for my husband and he loves them. Great sound and very comfortable. My husband is a runner and these will stay in your ears. These headphones are pricey but they definitely are worth the price. You will not be disappointed. Bose makes a quality product.

Sound good but quality is not there

By 

from East Amherst, NY

Comments about Bose Headphones:

BOSE is well known for high quality and great sounding products. No doubt that Bose manufacturing is top notch, however I was not happy with the BOSE IE2 headphones. I received these for Christmas and figured I would use them instead of the Klipsch IEPs. They fit well, comfortable to wear, and stayed in place thanks to an innovative design. Sure they sounded nice....good amount of bass but I think the Klipsch are slightly better. Unfortunately IE2s broke pretty quickly. I am no audiophile but the Klipsch are less expensive and offer better build quality. Some IEPs are meant to completely isolate sound into your ear, many times they feel like a suction cup. The IE2s did not feel like that which is a plus. They provide good range for hip-hop, metal, dance, rock, and funk music. Many IEPs miss out on bass, the Bose IE2s offer good bass. The IE2s come with replacement tips and a nice quality case.

For the price I expect better quality. The connector tip came apart after a couple of months of normal use. In fact they were lightly used. Not happy! They also do not cancel noise but they are not designed to do that. Good IEPs cancel noise so you only hear music. I have no complaints other than my experience with quality. Your experience may differ of course.

Nice headphones man...

By 

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

I purchased the Bose IE2 headphone in August. After doing quite a bit of research online and talking to others with this, or similar, products, I decided that the Bose IE2 head phone was the head phone most suitable for me. My main reason for buying this item was because I needed a new pair of head phones for my iphone and was tired of the crappy stock ones.. I mainly use my head phone for listening to music at work. I use this product daily and it appears to be great quality. One cool feature of this head phone is the StayHear silicone tips which keep them in your ear and reduce noise. The biggest positive for the Bose IE2 head phone is sound quality. The thing I most about this item is no volume bar. Overall, I would say that the Bose IE2 head phone was a solid product and a good purchase. (I got mine at Best Buy.) I would recommend this item to others.

Finally...earbuds that stay in place

By 

from Lynchburg, VA

Comments about Bose Headphones:

I was hesitant to pay so much for a set of earbuds but had exhausted all other options. These truly do stay in your ear even during motion. That alone is worth the price. The sound quality is excellent.

Bose Headphones: enough stability to ensure future impairment.

By 

from Columbia, MO

Comments about Bose Headphones:

I've been training for a marathon for about a month now, and when I'm spending hours with nothing to occupy me but my thoughts, it helps to have some background music.  No offense to my thoughts.  I had been using a set of Apple headphones for the longest time and they served me well until the right side ceased to emit tunes.  To the trash they went.  Having not bought headphones in a couple years, I was lost when it came to a replacement.  A friend recommended Bose, so I took a chance and picked up the IE2's.  And boy was I blown away.  They stay stable in my ears much better than the Apple ones ever did, which is either a good thing or a bad thing regarding the future of my hearing ability.  The clarity is great as well; I guess I never noticed how muffled my previous headphones had been.  The sound through these headphones wraps around your head and makes you forget you're listening through headphones at all, it is so atmospheric.  If damaging my hearing is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
