Money lost on overpriced, inadequately built product.
6 June 2012
Summary: I bought these on advice from a friend to use with my Iphone. The only thing I initially used them for was possibly three phone calls while driving. After starting my workout routine again after the winter of walking and listening to music on my Iphone, it took only 10 days before the left speaker bud was displaced from its casing where you could hear it rattle when shaken. It also sounded like a blown speaker when music played.
Pros: If I had the ability to use the features advertised for this product I would probably be able to give a Pro. Unfortunately the most important features (use with Iphone & speakers themself) have failed after ten days of use.
Cons: After only 10 days use, the left ear bud speaker rattles in its casing. The music control button (back or forward) has stopped working. I take meticulous care of this product for it to fail as quickly as it did, and for the price.
Summary: This is first review I have ever posted, but I was compelled to do so as I am so disappointed with this product and with Bose as a company. I bought these headphones about 2 years ago, and enjoyed the average sound quality for a while before the cables started fraying where the wires attached to the ear pieces. This has occurred on both ear pieces and now all internal wires are fully exposed, it is a matter of time before the headphones break.
Excerpt: " Really quite disappointed with these. I was after some headphones that would stand up to running, and be good for my 4 hour daily commute, and these seemed to be the best about. However I struggled with getting the fit right in my ears. Tried a few of the other sizes, but the size of the bud itself seems quite large, and still felt like it was going to pop out of my ear. However I decided to road test them on a walk into town.
Excerpt: " 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.
Excerpt: " Bought these after reading the review from another AC/DC fan.Unfortunately I found the in-ear phones were quite loose (yes I did find the right size tip) and just rested in the ear,not right inside,consequently the sound was nowhere near loud enough (you can't listen to hard rock/heavy metal music softly!) and I would have had to turn the volume up to maximum which is not a good idea.Also,the sound appeared to be very "muffled"no real clarity to it.
Summary: Habe einen Bose IE2 vor etwas mehr als 2 Jahren gekauft. Das Kabel ist mitlerweile so brüchig geworden das sich einzelnen Teile der Isolierung ablösen. Für mich ist das definitiv ein Materialfehler da der Kopfhörere fast nie in gebrauch war. Laut Bose ist es egal was die Ursache ist die 2 Jahre Garantie sind um und es gibt absolut keine Kulanz nach der Garantiezeit. Könnte mir ja einen Neuen kaufen. Das nennt man mal Service am Kunden.
Schlechter Klang da keine geeignete passform für meine Ohrmuschel vorhanden

Summary: Die Ohrstöpsel passen leider garnicht in mein Ohr. Daher ist das Klangerlebnis vergleichbar mit 10EURO Kopfhörern. Erst wenn ich mit meinen Händen beide Ohrstöpfel fest reinpresse höre ich den Bass aus der Musik ansatzweise...
