Summary: Firstly they are very comfortable, best ive tried. but now the bad things. Highs and mids sound good but dont seem to get the bass i expected, tried the different size tips to see if they sealed better to get more bass, but no luck. Got some in ear headphones i've had a few years and paid 25% the price of these and they out preform them by a mile. Also i have to have volume much higher to hear the bose. Sorry they are going back first thing in the morning.
Summary: I bought these for myself a couple of months ago. I did think long and hard as they are a considered purchase. I am so glad I did, they are excellent. You can wear them comfortably and not even realise they are in your ears, plus the sound does not leak out as in some cheaper headphones. My son was so impressed with mine so I bought him some. Worth every penny - highly recommended.
Summary: Recieved these amazing Headphones today and all I can say is WOW the sound is fantastic and as BOSE have said TRUE TO SOUND. They are so comfortable to wear you in fact do not realize they are in your ears, They are so light and the ear piece is so discrete inside your inner ear. Thank you BOSE and QVC this is the second item of BOSE I have purchased on QVC having had the CINEMATE 11 Theatre Speakers last year I will never pay cheap for true sound production ever again.
Summary: I received these headphones for Christmas to use with my i-pod Shuffle on the way to/from and in the gym. The sound quality is great and the buds fit really comfortably and securely in my ears. Although they might seem expensive i consider they are well worth the money in terms of the improved comfort and sound quality you get from them.
Summary: I have lost count of the amount of money I have spent over the years on different types of headphones, I have never been able to find a pair that will sit in my ears without making them hurt or continually falling out. These are just superb, they fit in the ear like they were custom made and the sound quality is like nothing I have ever heard before, simply stunning, and yes for the money these are a considered purchase, but weigh that up against all the money you waste...
Summary: Having been envious of my husband's set of headphones (the older model), I ordered these and am I glad I did! I love the case that comes with them, to keep the headphones and i -pod tidy, and the new stayhere tips really do stay, as well be incredibly comfortable. As for the sound, my ears virtually "sighed" with relief and delight with the glorious sound that these headphones produce. If you or your ears need a treat, then buy these. You will not regret it!
Summary: If you prefer or your limited to in ear bud style headphones look no further. Yes they appear a little expensive given the huge choice on the market today, but look no further than these very clever Bose units. Sound quality is as good as any headphone on or in ear I have ever heard. The design of the clip is must for all people forever ramming headphones down your ear canal, especially while exercising, and you get a choice of 3 sizes, and spare can be purchased through...
Summary: I have just received these updated Bose IE2 and as I have the previous version so I decided to compare playing my favorite track from my iPod. Using the original set and then the new version, both at the same volume. Not a scientific test I know, but I can say that I have been blown away by the quality from these IE2 headphones. The clarity and separation of tones in the singing voice is amazing, not to mention the music as well is well worth the money.
Summary: These headphones are awesome, they make your music sound WAY better and they have EPIC bass, probably the best I've heard in any pair of earbuds let alone headphones all together. They also stay firmly in your ear and never fall out, while at the same time being very comfortable to wear (I tried them while I was snowboarding for 2 hours, not once did I have an issue with them).
Mediocre product compare to similarly priced items.

Summary: I got these for $50 on Ebay (they're authentic). I wanted to compare them to the Klipsch S4s, which I had bought earlier. The IE2s are about $20 more MSRP but I don't think they're quite as good. The sound is muddled in the mid-range and rather flat at the high end. I have been constantly comparing them to the Klipsch S4s are crisper and cleaner. Additionally, I compared them to my Grado SR-60s and they are far inferior.
