Poor quality for cost

  • Excerpt: I have had a lot of good experience with this brand in the past, however, the Bose 40226 Headphones are not exceptional. The sound is above average compared to cheap ear plug variety types but they do not provide a comfortable fit despite the ability to change the different ear plug ins. The quality is below what I expect of Bose, perhaps because they provide better headphones than earphones. Overall, this is an average product but more expensive.

Bose in-ear ear phones

  • Excerpt: My experience with the Bose in-ear head phones has been mixed.  First the good:  The sound from these ear buds are great.  They gave 3 different in-ear forms, which makes it easy to find the right size insert for just about any body.  There is a very nice carrying case that protect the ear buds when not in use.  Now the not-so-good:  "The first pair I owned did not last very long.

Disappointed in Bose In Ears

  • Excerpt: After purchasing over the ear headphones and the wave music system from Bose I thought that I could not miss with this product from Bose, however I was left disappointed. While the quality of sound is exceptional as Bose products are known for, the practicality and reliability of this product did not live up to my expectations. They give you various size in ear inserts for use with them, but none of this inserts really fit my ear well at all.

Great Quality - Bad Fit

  • Excerpt: The ear buds which are attachments are so bad!! I love the quality that BOSE always provided. I grew up with dreams of affording bose headphones all my life. so when I got a chance on getting them when I collected funds for that - I couldnt wait to goto a Bose store for them. The first time I hear the sound - it was like magic.. All the bass was so clear, all the voices were so amazing and my ears were soothed of happiness based on the quality that bose provided.

Great for sitting, not working out.

  • Excerpt: I bought these for my husband at Christmas, as he works an hour away and uses a van pool. Thus he does a lot of reading and listening to music, sermons, etc. He loves them, and I them for the quality of sound alone. They are so clear and perfect balance of bass, treble, etc. The only problem is when using them to work out, the ear bud piece falls out. EVERY time. On both of us. So I can't blame it on earshape.

User Review

  • Summary: Ireally enjoyed these headphones. They were very comfortable and very light. I went around the globe with them using them every day for a few years and they didn't have any signs of wear or break down at all. That's not a testament to their manufacturing quality, thats just a testament to how great I am with my headphones. High 5! No? ok. They sound great but they don't do bass well.
  • Pros: Comfty, as light as air
  • Cons: bass

problem with plastic

  • Summary: I agree with the previous reviewer. I owned this headset for over year, using very lightly, then SNAP the right ear speaker broke right off the arm. I have noticed with Bose products that the plastic parts are a problem and are of poor quality. With my quiet comfort 2 headphones, the battery door (plastic of course) doesn't close completely. I would not replace these headphones with the same. I agree that there are other better made products. Try Grado.

JUST OKAY

  • Summary: I got these headphones about 6 months ago. I was really excited ... I was getting "BOSE" headphones. Well, they are really nothing special. Yes, they are light weight and comfortable (they get a 5 in these areas). But the audio quality is no better than my cheap set from Radio Shack. If you are looking for great audio quality, look elsewhere. For the money, you can do much better.
