For the price, these earbuds are not very good.

  • Summary: I think for the price of these earbuds, they are not quite up to BOSE standard, or stated standard.
  • Pros: They fit nicely
  • Cons: They do NOT block outside noise and the sound is not very BOSE quality.

Great fit, decent sound

KG, Crutchfield

  • Summary: These are a good set of headphones. They are remarkably more comfortable than an in-ear version, but still have much of the subtle look of those. The comfort was the selling factor for me as the sound is about average for a set of phones in this price range. The bass is pretty muddy and at times overwhelming even at lower volumes. This muddiness led to a crackle (a moderate level of permanent distortion) when only a few months old.
  • Pros: Extremely comfortable and stay put even though they are not in-ear 'phones
  • Cons: Overpriced and have a tendency to crackle due to overexagerated bass

Bose is Bose

  • Excerpt: As anyone who knows headphones knows, Bose headphones are the top-of-the-line headphones sold at stores such as Best Buy. Customers are always steered towards Bose as the "best headphones ever" by employees, and the price helps to drive home that point. But are they really worth the money? The quality of these earbuds cannot be denied- the fit and overall design is good.

Sound good but quality is not there

  • Excerpt: BOSE is well known for high quality and great sounding products. No doubt that Bose manufacturing is top notch, however I was not happy with the BOSE IE2 headphones. I received these for Christmas and figured I would use them instead of the Klipsch IEPs. They fit well, comfortable to wear, and stayed in place thanks to an innovative design. Sure they sounded nice....good amount of bass but I think the Klipsch are slightly better. Unfortunately IE2s broke pretty quickly.

No Good for Subway

  • Excerpt: Really nice sound and very comfortable. However, if you want to use them in the NYC subway system they are not a great choice because of ambient noise. However in quieter areas they are amazing.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Great Sound
  • Cons: Too Much Ambient Noise

I won't buy another pair

  • Summary: I got a pair with my Bose CD player from QVC. With in 9 months the protective screen came off the end of one of the ear buds and was lost. I took it into a Bose store expecting an exchange. This is a Bose manufacturing outlet store in Sevierville TN. They said I had to return them to the place I got them at and they could not exchange. I did not want my money back, I wanted to exchange them. Not only was it poor workmanship, but terrible exchange policy.
