Conclusion: The Bose SIE2i is an excellent performer. Although not audiophile-grade, it does sound very good. The open design makes it comfortable to wear even when it's hot, and the design ensures that sweat never enters the speaker section. The silicone rubber eartips fit securely and inconspicuously, and won't fall off during your exercise routine. The Reebok-branded armband looks cool and has great utility. All this, unsurprisingly, comes at a price — a hefty Rs 8700.
Pros: Comfortable fit; Great sound; Sweat-resistant; iPhone-compatible; Reebok armband.
Cons: Expensive; Armband pouch too small for the iPhone 5.
