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.
Summary: I bought these on the online sale for 50% off so these are definitely worth it at that price. I was using Monster Turbine but lost all but the small tips and hurt my ears. These do not. No matter what size I use they are great and even after long periods of use I don't feel these in my ears thanks to the gel ear tips. The sound is amazing, very clear. Some complained about too much bass. I don't find there to be too much bass, maybe i'm wearing them wrong.
Summary: another christmas present sorted with such little effort on my part, this is for my husband who will be able to put it to good use with with either his personel radio or shuffle, I went for a quality product so will not get thanks for sock love this year
Summary: Purchased two sets when they were on sale in August.. purchased 3 more sets today as they were on sale again, will be giving these away as Xmas presents to some lucky friends. I'm rather picky with my headphones had have owned many different brands and styles over the years, but these Bose units are by far the best.. great detailed sound with good bass, and they stay put in my ears during exercise and other activities.
Summary: These headphones are the worst headphones i've ever tried. Unlike most earbuds i've had before these barely go in your ear. This means unless you have them really loud you hear all the noise around you which drowns out the music. They are also really big and awkward. If you use these in a very quiet setting they sound alright, anywhere else they sound awful.
Summary: If you're the type of person who likes loud bass, then these are perfect for you. They are loud, very loud. And the way they created this artificial bass meant everything else was made quieter. These are great for a quiet environment such as the home or office, but if you're outside, all you hear is bass, anything else is barely audible. The case and extra ear buds are very nice, and Bass support is top knotch.
Summary: These were my first pair of "higher-end" earphones because I was tired constantly having to replace my skull candy titan ear buds. I got these for 99.99 and I thought it was a great deal! The thing that I like the most about these earphones is its comfortable design. Unlike the apple earphones I can wear these for a whole day and not feel and discomfort around my ears. Also, the sound quality is great just like any other Bose product.
Summary: So far so good, bought these since my last pair of sony sport headphones (earbuds) gave up the ghost. Sound quality is outstanding, bass is good and sound is very clear. They are very comfortable in my ears, I bought them for use at the gym and so far they are fitting very well. They come with a whole bunch of different ear attachments but the set right out of the box fits perfectly.
Summary: I had a pair of the original in ear headphones and whilst impressed with the sound quality I found them difficult to keep in my ears. To be absolutely fair I find it difficult to keep any earphones in my ears. These provide a much richer audio experience than most earphones and critically are super comfortable. There is no need to wedge these in your ear, unlike many brands.
