Summary: Pretty short review of the things that needs attention in my opinion when it comes to the IE2:
I paid for them around $140 here in Serbia and for the price I was disappointed. I chose IE2, when my Sony EX300 cables stopped working, because it was available in my god forsaken country Serbia where...
Summary: I originally bought these because my earbuds had came apart on a flight from Canada to Hong Kong. I love the Bose home theater products I have at home and saw a Bose store in the airport and decided to buy them.
Summary: If you're looking into buying some Bose IE2s, save your money.
BUILD AND DESIGN:
The build on the IE2 is less-than-fantastic. They're all plastic, very light, and they feel fragile. I did, however, enjoy the design.
The headphones come with three pairs of StayHear™ tips (small, medium, and large), a shirt clip, and a carrying case. Shirt clips are always nice to have, although mine sadly broke within the first month of use.
Pros: Comfortable, stable, and hiss-free on nearly any audio source.
Cons: Meh sound, tangling cables, and no isolation.
Summary: A little decent pair of In-ears, nothing to special and exciting about them.
They sound decent for users who want to enjoy their music on the go such as exercise or other events.
Offers a very dark sound with a large mid-bass hump.
Pros: Warm pleasing, dark sound, never harsh sounding, very very smooth (even at loud volumes), fit nicely in ear
Cons: Lacks detail in higher frequency spectrum, veiled/muffled, rolled off highs
Summary: wouldn't recommend if you're going to pay for $100 or above. Reasonable price should have been around $70. The only selling point is the open soundstage, would make a goid pair for movies or gaming.
Pros: Soundstage is guite airy, open and dynamic. Good amount of bass for pop or rocks etc. Innovative design.
Cons: Zero isolation in public, lack sonic details, wired wearing application which probably won't suit a lot of people, pricely & low c/p ratio.
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.
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...
