Summary: This will be the first and last pair of Bose headphones I ever purchase. I have had many other cheap earbuds that are still sitting in my drawer in fine working condition, after years of rough use.
Pros: Allows enough ambient sound to hear cars, bikes or joggers passing. Good sound quality, nice cable that doesn't tangle easily.
Cons: Broken after 18 months of use with gentle care. I kept these in a case and used them very carefully, after paying $140 for them, and one day the right side earbud just died. No external damage or trauma, just dead. Outside the warranty, so Bose said they won't replace them.
Terrible ear fit with all of the supplied earpieces, leaks noise to anyone nearby

Summary: I have some over the ear noise cancelling Bose headphones and expected these to be pretty good - the sound certainly is but the fit is abysmal, too loose and not enough flex to get the air tight fit you need to stop sound leaking out and to get a good bass.
Summary: I bought them for someone who lives abroad thinking I was getting long lasting quality from the Bose name. Surprised when she told me they simply stopped working after a few weeks. Terribly disappointed as there's no way for me to get them off her and return them now.
Summary: Readers... I am a Bose fan and use many of the products in / around the house. Having purchased these I can tell you that they are the worst in-ear units I have ever used. Regardless of the size of ear rubber you choose to use the seal is poor. Its so poor that you lose volume and sound quality.
Summary: I ordered these based on reviews and a trust in the product name, how wrong could I have been. Whilst admittedly I did know that they were not noise cancelling, I was not aware just how bad the external leakage from these was.
Summary: Bought these for my husband for Christmas.He was too polite to say they were rubbish. Ended up laying around in a draw, by the time I checked them out was too late to return.Sound muffed no clarity off the sound.Original Iphone headset sound so much better.Don't waste your money not worth fraction...
Summary: the recent head set which i have bought from you. i started using that one from past one week, due heavy xmas schedule, I never opened the package. when I started using that out of two only right one is working no sound from left one.
Summary: I bought these in the new year. I had tried a pair of the Beats by Dre. Tour in ear headphones. The sound on those was v impressive, but unfortunately with both pairs the wire split and came loose from the microphone. Thought i'd be onto a winner with these, as the quality of Bose is well renowned.
