Excerpt: " I like how neat this was & the Burgundy colour was lovely in real life . I already own Bose docking system , speakers and head phones which are great but I did not feel you were getting enough for your money , at this price I expected the Bluetooth to be inbuilt as well as DAB and soon realised I...
Summary: I bought these expecting big things, I owned a pair of the first generation bose earphones and from what I can remember they were actually pretty decent. Since then I've had some shure se 205's some ultimate ears super fi 5s, a couple of pairs of a jays and some sony XBA's, and these were below all...
Summary: Very good sound quality, but they are very irritating for other people, remember sitting next to people with Walkmans and hearing that tinny sound well you get the same from these, not worth the money
Summary: These are beautiful headphones with superb sound quality but in my opinion they suffer in two key areas. The first problem is that they "leak" sound and tend to result in scornful looks from my fellow commuters (particularly if sitting in the quiet carriage).
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.
Summary: When using these in a quite room they are fantastic. The sound far out strips my Sennheiser 300's in range and the bass is great. Where they fall down is when in a noisy environment, such as an airplane or the train/tube.
Summary: These are a good pair of headphones. The build quality is excellent and the Stayhear tips are very comfortable. I bought the stayhear plus tips to make them more sound isolating. In particularly loud enviroments (trains and planes) it can be very difficult to hear with the regular tips.
