Great Quality, Decent Price

Bradford S., Newegg
20 September 2010
  • Summary: If you want a set of great quality headphones, and don't mind not having sound canceling, go for these guys. I consider my Bose Quiet Comfort 2s to have better sound quality, but only by a tiny bit, and the price jump is quite considerable from these earbuds to the Quiet Comforts.
  • Pros: I received a pair of these headphones when they first came out onto the market quite some time ago (4 or so years I believe). They are still working strong for me. Great sound quality. Multiple different silicon tip sizes depending on your ear size. I always keep the headphones with me, and use t...
  • Cons: I have always struggled to find the correct size for my ears, even after all of these years. If the piece is too large, it hurts my ears. If the piece is too small, they fall out as soon as I turn or move my head. I have also found these headphones almost impossible to use for sports and physical...

Bose is Bose, what's in a name.

Terence K., Newegg
25 August 2010
  • Summary: Awesome head phones, super comfortable and stable fit. Durability is a little bit questionable for the price, brand, and price. I got a great deal so no complaints, but sound doesn't seem noticebly better then my $30 Sennheiser earbuds. Far more comfortable fit though.
  • Pros: Plenty of size option. Comfortable fit. Very good sound.
  • Cons: Plug doesn't feel entirely durable. A little bass heavy on the sound.

Comfortable with great bass

Stephen M., Newegg
15 January 2010
  • Summary: After two years of heavy use (every day at work + quite a few work outs) they finally broke. The chord near the .35mm connector cracked and unless it's "just right" the left ear cuts out (wire broken I assume).
  • Pros: Deep rich bass makes certain songs & genres really thump (rap, hip-hop, dancehall, etc.). I also listen to a lot of metal, and bands with down-tuned instruments (i.e. Korn) sound especially heavy.
  • Cons: I had to purchase replacement earbuds twice, as the plastic cuts into it after time. But $6 didn't break the bank. Also, the metal screens on the inside gets very dirty and must be cleaned very carefully. I found that a pin or thumb tack can scrape off any debris while being gentle enough not to ...

UPDATE - How to Repair Defective Cord

Darren N., Newegg
9 September 2009
  • Summary: Step 4 (continued): After alot of time and effort your cables will look silver and not colored. Even the copper cable had coat of paint on it and should be silver after you melt it off. Step 5: Twist the colors together. Blue + White = left, Red + Red = right, Copper + copper = ground. Step 6.
  • Pros: Previous Review: "Amazing Sound + Comfort - Defective Cord = 3 Egg: - Wire Cutters/Strippers or Scissors - Soldering Iron - Solder - Electrical Tape (I used both solid and liquid)
  • Cons: HOW TO REPAIR DEFECTIVE CORD: 1. Cut the audio connector tip off of the headphones (I know, doesn't sound or feel right when doing it, but it's worth it) 2. Strip the Bose wire (tricky since it is so rubbery), and expose the wires within. There will be 3; one blue (left), one red (right), and one...

Got as a gift

Anonymous, Newegg
14 April 2009
  • Summary: You really have to play with the size of the tips and the position of them in your ear to get the high & low frequencies balanced. If you try to wear them tightly in your ear the bass will be overwhelming, if you wear them too loosely there won't be enough bass.
  • Pros: Good bass if positioned in your ear right.
  • Cons: Noise canceling isn't as good as in-canal type buds. Not as good on the high end as my old Apple in-canal ear buds. Difficult to get the best position in your ear.

User Review

Nico K., Newegg
4 April 2009
  • Pros: Sounds are good. Love it. In ear is very comfortable. Love it. Got it for 40 bucks, so it's a good deal :)
  • Cons: Sounds a little "sharp". I don't know how to say it, but when I crank the sound up, the it pierce my ears. Never really have a good quality speaker so I can't tell if this is good or bad. I don't really like it tho

New and Improved

Marcus H., Newegg
1 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought two pair of these for $50 each at AAFES Catalog Sales (w/coupon). They are definitely great earbuds for that price. I was lucky to get the newest version as it my understaning that many places are still selling the older version that received poor reviews, and rightfully so.
  • Pros: Good style, quality build, quality sound.
  • Cons: Expensive if you pay full price. Other less costly buds are just as good. Older version has many problems.

10x better than ipod earbuds

Ben M., Newegg
29 December 2008
  • Summary: Not as loud overall as many other normal earbuds but I have never heard them distort. Too many people complain about these being a waste of money and talk about how X brand headphones are so much better and give these 1 or 2 egg reviews.
  • Pros: Great natural bass and mids but not as much on the highs as some people like. iPod earbuds sound pathetic compared to these. Most comfortable headphones I have ever worn.
  • Cons: Might not be worth the price compared to some other in-ear headphones in its price range. A year of use and the right earbud doesn't work anymore unless I tweak the cord around the jack. I can't find a receipt or the warranty which might have expired, too bad because these were nice.

I LIKE 'EM....THEY WORK FOR ME

Byron E., Newegg
26 December 2008
  • Summary: i listen to hardcore, electronica, techno. it it works for me
  • Pros: well pros....i like how they fit on the ear, the sound is good as long as you have no EQ set up it gives you a pretty rich sound....the lows,mids, and highs are pretty balanced. and its the best youre going to get for $90 bux.
  • Cons: dont really like the case on the new model of these...if you lose your size of ear piece your out of luck...but thats easily fixed by visiting the BOSE site and requesting a new set of them. and finally theyre not noise cancelling, but then again they dont claim to be.
