Summary: Let me start by saying even though I own other quality Bose products, and I knew I was paying for the Bose name and therefore the QUALITY OF SOUND, I was nervous about the price just for sport headphones. However, after only three short days, I am in love! FIRST off, for those complaining about the mic and volume controls; if you bought these vs. the SIE2's, then you were willing to spend the extra $30 just for the mic control.
Summary: I've been looking for headphones that will stay put while running and also have good sound quality. These fit the bill. I like that the cord is shorter so I don't have to wrap the extra cord around my iPod like I used to. It does come with a cord extension though for those times when you may want one. I didn't care for the arm band too much. It does tighten very well. I ended up using what I already had.
Summary: These are fantastic earbuds for active people. I love listening to music when I go running, but regular earbuds always slide off and fall. With the StayHear tips, the earbuds stay in place, and the rubber is very soft and they fit so comfortable after a few minutes I don't even feel them. The only issue I have is that the volume control buttons don't work on my Android phone.
Summary: I use this product for mostly gym use, I could never find headphones that would stay while working out and this product has solved that problem! It's a great design, great sound & works great for just use as headphones while talking on the phone. They go into your ear easily & the left/right stand out from each other so your not guessing if you have the correct one in each ear!
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Quality Microphone
Summary: When it comes to Bose you would expect world class sound. I admit I am a man that is picky with his headphones, very picky. I do not like the headphones to get in the way of when I run or lift weights. The good thing about this product is that the reebok arm band allows just that. When I put it on I didn't worry about it or notice that it was there, so that was great. However, as I mentioned "World Class Sound" Bose really dropped the ball on this one.
