Excerpt: I had this Bose In-ear headphones for more than a year. they still work really well. They still provide great sound quality. I have like a small cut on it but nothing major. they dont hurt like other headphones do. When i wear them I cant tell if they are in my ear or not.They are that comfortable. I really LOVE THIS BOSE PIECE. Im glad i did not buy skullcandy or beats.
Summary: Bose has been a public commercialized product just like the Beats by Dr. Dre. They have been used by some friends of mine so i decided to give them a try but i didn't end up buying the normal ones, i bought the one with a mic to use with my PSP and iPod because at the time iPods and PSP didn't have mics and i wanted my portable devices to have one.
Pros: Good sound, good mic, rubber tips don't fall off
Cons: Useless plastic Bose logo along the chord, weird side analog connector, no noise canceling
Summary: I Got these headphones and i have to say they have a really great sound. I like how good they sound but for $90 i can just get the Klipsch S4 or S4i. The Bose has a good Low end for rap, rock and hip hop users. It lacks enough treble for the low end though. i Feel like vocals can be a little better as sometimes it sounds stall compared to my Klipsch and not as smooth. I feel like it has really good audio quality besides that and the design is ok.

Summary: My much enjoyed Samsung IEM's died on me, and with needing something to listen to my music on and use for my audio/studio class, my parents gave me this.
First Impressions: OUCH. I never had the greatest opinion of Bose headphones, but this was plain unexpected. Upon plugging them into my Samsung Captivate, I was assaulted by extremely congested and boomy sound (after fiddling around with the fit on all 3 tip sizes for a few minutes and completely giving up).
Pros: I got them for free, smooth and generally lacking harshness, powerful bass, decent cables
Cons: Midbass hump the size of Mt. Everest, way too thick-sounding and boomy, a bit muddy, poor fit and no seal or isolation with any tips
Summary: Really a horrible set of headphones for the money.
I got these way back as an upgrade from stock ipod headphones and was blown away by the bass. At the time all I wanted was bass and boy did they deliver. At the time I loved them but as my music interests grew and expanded so did my realization that I had horrible headphones.
Last year I picked up a set of AWEI ES-Q3 off of Dealextreme for like $5 and those were considerably ahead of these Bose in terms of balance.
Pros: Smooth...I guess?
Cons: Muddy sloppy woolly bass, no seal, microphonics, tips fall off easy
