Excerpt: I think Bose just put their name on these. Sound quality isn't anything I expected - I know it's not $400 headphones but my "cheapy" earbuds are ALOT better. I like Bose alot but don't waste your money on these.
Summary: I use these with 4 different players, from mini disk to fm radio to mp3, usually at gym or hiking. Depending on the player, they have strange peaks, upper mid range, like the mid high aspect of a snare drum, that becomes annoying. Also, the ear shaped inserts are hard and slow to put in and out, like when you stop to say hi to someone.
Pros: Seem to be nice quality.
Cons: Sound with mid-high volume peaks, hard to put in and out quickly.
Summary: These were a huge disappointment. Waste of money in my case. I'll use them where sound quality doesn't matter, like watching movies on my Kindle Fire. Sound quality is so inferior to my Bang & Olufsen earbuds. It's even more inferior to my Bose on-ear phones. Very comfortable, though, and don't fall out.
Summary: after reading the reviews and considering the notoriety of the bose name, I decided to give these ear buds a try. and i must say.... im disappointed i was trying to find something to replace my $30 dollar ear buds. I'm big on sound quality, but couldn't bring myself to spend hundreds of dollars on ear buds. to my disappointment, I find the sound in my old ear buds to be about the same as these bose ear buds.
Summary: I still love Bose for its comfort and sound. I purchased two IE2 in 6 months gap and both of their wires ripped after a year. I take pretty good care of my ear phones but these ones are just badly made.
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: For the price I expected allot more from these headphones. They block little to no sound, bass is nonexistent and they don't even go as loud as the inexpensive JCV inear headphones I upgraded from. They also feel like they are going to fall out and don't have a great fit. Sound is overall good but not that good. Avoid if you like real inear headphones.
Summary: Well as the title of the review said its great has top notice sound fit comfortably sleek design, BUT if you are listening to music at a normal volume never you hear EVERYTHING around you.... which is the biggest con you need to almost max the volume to drown out the normal street sounds and the over all problem with that is it bothers other people at the work place while enjoying your music for the price of the product the lack of any sound isolation is sad.
Review Bose IE2 - wie kann man sowas nur empfehlen?
3 March 2014
Summary: Hinweis zur Gewichtung der Wertung: Tragekomfort : 1 Punkt max. Lieferumfang/Qualitätsanmutung: 1 Punkt max. Klang: 3 Punkte max. --- Vorwort: Auch wenn in diesem Review des Öfteren vom Sennheiser CX400 die Rede ist - das soll kein Vergleichstest sein. Der CX400 ist halt der In-Ear-Kopfhörer, den ich seit Jahren "ausser Haus" immer nutze. Und von all meinen In-Ears der klanglich ausgewogenste Kopfhörer. Das von mir genutzte Modell gibt es schon lange nicht mehr.
