  • Summary: Pretty short review of the things that needs attention in my opinion when it comes to the IE2: I paid for them around $140 here in Serbia and for the price I was disappointed. I chose IE2, when my Sony EX300 cables stopped working, because it was available in my god forsaken country Serbia where we...

  • Summary: If you're looking into buying some Bose IE2s, save your money. BUILD AND DESIGN: The build on the IE2 is less-than-fantastic. They're all plastic, very light, and they feel fragile. I did, however, enjoy the design.
  • Pros: Fun-looking striped cord
  • Cons: No sound isolation

  • Summary: Update: Reduced design rating due to ever-tangling cable. The cable is MADE with some type of built-in twisting/tangling design flaw. Just holding the headphones in my hand, the cable wants to twist and turn and due to its material, it's never fully "straightened out" like most other headphone...

  • Summary: Initial Impression: They're earbuds with funky tips. They have a funky black and white wire and they're decently popular. Initially they appeared as good earbuds with a very consumer-friendly sound. Build Quality: The build quality is very poor.
  • Pros: Decent sound quality, stay-in ear technology, open-backed, comfortable
  • Cons: Low-isolation, muddy bass, muffled highs

  • Summary: wouldn't recommend if you're going to pay for $100 or above. Reasonable price should have been around $70. The only selling point is the open soundstage, would make a goid pair for movies or gaming.
  • Pros: Soundstage is guite airy, open and dynamic. Good amount of bass for pop or rocks etc. Innovative design.
  • Cons: Zero isolation in public, lack sonic details, wired wearing application which probably won't suit a lot of people, pricely & low c/p ratio.

  • Summary: A little decent pair of In-ears, nothing to special and exciting about them. They sound decent for users who want to enjoy their music on the go such as exercise or other events. Offers a very dark sound with a large mid-bass hump.
  • Pros: Warm pleasing, dark sound, never harsh sounding, very very smooth (even at loud volumes), fit nicely in ear
  • Cons: Lacks detail in higher frequency spectrum, veiled/muffled, rolled off highs

  • Summary: Too many bass frequencies and as I said before, the audio quality doesn't convince me, bad trebles and mids, they're all made by plastic. The good side is that they're perfect for sports activities, because with the StayHear system the earphones doesn't drop from the ear, whether they're very...
  • Pros: Comfortable, attractive look, perfect for sports.
  • Cons: Too much basses, the audio quality doesn't convince me, thin cable, all plastic materials.
