Summary: I bought these headphones earlier this year. They sound great. But I use them portably with my iPad. Within a few months of purchasing them I've found the connection with my iPad is very tenuous. Now I often have to adjust the connection manually to get the headphones to work in both ears. I am not sure that I would buy them again.
Summary: I have not had many ear buds but this the best quality one that I have had. They sound better than others, more natural and are quite comfortable although the way they sit in the ear instead of plug into the ear canal is kind of strange and was a little hard to get used to. I am still not sure whether I prefer these ear buds or an over the ear design standard headphone.
Pros: light weight, portable, comfortable, not much if any sound bleed out, nice natural sound.
Cons: Cord is kind of short for my use, have to be careful not to rip it out of the jack where I am sitting if I shift position.
Excerpt: The IE2 audio headphones are a good investment. They kind of hover over the ears instead of plugging inside the ears as usual in ear headphones will do. This keeps the ear from getting sore during extended times of use. The earphones provide clear, full sound. The hover over the ear technology is also not the best when taking into account you also hear background noise coming from around you.
Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Lightweight
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Too Much Ambient Noise
Summary: This is my second pair of Bose in ear headphones. I loved my first ones but I had worn them on many runs and they were starting to fall apart after 5 years. These were my replacements and they are AMAZING. The sound quality is fabulous and the new design of the earbuds is so comfortable. I am excited to try out the microphone for phone calls, but so far I am incredibly pleased with these. They are worth the money!
Summary: The headphones have the great Bose quality sound. They also stay in place during strenuous activity such as riding your bike and at the gym. I did 50 jumping jacks wearing these headphones and they stayed on perfectly.
Summary: I was looking for a quality pair of earbuds for running and everyday use. With Bose's reputation and positive reviews I decided on these. The sound quality is great and the special in ear buds help the headphones to stay in your ears very securely while running. Cons: If the wire is bouncing on your body while running you can hear the sound and echo of it hitting in your ears - very distracting and annoying. The sound also is not contained well.
