IE2 In-Ear Headphones

  • Excerpt: The IE2 audio headphones are a good investment. They kind of hover over the ears instead of plugging inside the ears as usual in ear headphones will do. This keeps the ear from getting sore during extended times of use. The earphones provide clear, full sound. The hover over the ear technology is also not the best when taking into account you also hear background noise coming from around you.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Too Much Ambient Noise

Great earphones

  • Excerpt: Got this with the my B&H reward card. This is my second set as I lost my first ones a few months ago. So let me start by saying that so many people complain that these earphones do not isolate background noise, or cancel noise. These are not meant to be that way. With that said these work great. I need to hear my environment...my kids when I am out and about, and also when I am biking. They stay in the ear and are very comfortable.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Cord Too Short, Unattractive Design

Good sound for the price, a little short on details

  • Summary: As a sound tech / worship leader / recording engineer at my church, I am always in need of a decent set of headphones that I can keep with me at all times. I bought the IE2s several months ago, and I've found myself using them in a lot of applications - mixing, recording and even while on stage (the band members all use headphones - no stage monitors).
  • Pros: Extremely comfortable, the Bose IE2s offer good sound quality with a decent amount of bass and a slightly wider range than some other headphones of similiar price. Bose thoughtfully included three sizes of inserts that easily slip over the speakers
  • Cons: The headphone cable does seem somewhat flimsy and it is not long enough for my taste. Some might consider $100 a bit high for these in-ears.

Wow - they fit!

  • Excerpt: I bought these for my wife, who always had a problem with the "one size fits somebody" design of her old ones. She does a lot of walking and jogging, and these work very well for her and don't fall out. With three sizes of earpieces they should work for anyone. Oh, and they sound good too.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Lightweight

so comfortable

  • Excerpt: IE2 is super comfortable, the silicone material is really soft on your ear, no discomfort after long rides, and no need to keep readjusting headphones. I own Klipsch (lousy for biking, kept poping out). Back to Bose, they sound nice for most music, club/dance/rock/pop, the base is good, I was really suprise, I wasn't expecting too much. The reason I went with Bose, they sit on your ear, not inside the ear canal.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Lightweight, Stylish
  • Cons: Poor Value

User Review

  • Summary: Too many bass frequencies and as I said before, the audio quality doesn't convince me, bad trebles and mids, they're all made by plastic. The good side is that they're perfect for sports activities, because with the StayHear system the earphones doesn't drop from the ear, whether they're very comfortable.
  • Pros: Comfortable, attractive look, perfect for sports.
  • Cons: Too much basses, the audio quality doesn't convince me, thin cable, all plastic materials.
