Features

Overview: The Bose FreeStyle in-ear earbud headphones are built for great sound, stylish look, and comfortable fit. Contrasting cord colors and color patterns on the earbuds show your style, while Bose's exclusive StayHear tips keep the earbuds comfortably in place. The included clothing clip and sliding cinch let you adjust the cables for comfort and stability. FreeStyle earbuds are specifically designed for use with iPhone and other Apple products.

In-Line Remote Control/Microphone: The FreeStyle earbud headphones' attached cable features an in-line remote control and microphone that is compatible with select Apple products. The remote and mic are compatible with iPhone 3GS and later, iPad, iPod touch 2nd generation and later, iPod classic (120GB and 160GB), and iPod nano 4th generation or later. The remote is supported by iPod shuffle 3rd generation or later. Audio is supported by all iPad and iPod models. Controls include volume up/down, skip forward or backward, fast forward/rewind, play, pause, accept call, reject call, end call, and engage Voice Control (with compatible devices).

Note: The headphones should be able to deliver audio to most devices with a 3.5mm jack. The answer/end calls function may work with other devices, but the function varies between models. The volume controls will not likely work with non-Apple devices.

StayHear Tips: The FreeStyle earbud headphones come with Bose's proprietary StayHear silicone ear-tips in three sizes (Small, Medium, and Large) to help assure a more accurate fit that's comfortable and stable. StayHear silicone ear-tips stay in your ears during exercise and other active sports. Advanced materials and design allow the tips to nestle inside the bowl of the ear, while also naturally conforming to the ear's upper ridge. StayHear tips also are designed to remain more securely on the headphone itself. Overall, they provide a better on-the-go listening experience.

Note: You should not attempt to wear the earbud headphones without the silicone tips.

TriPort Technology: The FreeStyle earbuds feature Bose's proprietary TriPort technology, which helps deliver a deep, powerful bass response. Three tiny ports in each earbud augment the low frequencies to provide lifelike reproduction for drums, bass, and guitars.

Durable: The FreeStyles are durable, and made for your active lifestyle. They are sweat- and weather-resistant to keep moisture out. The cables and reinforced connections can withstand vigorous activity for years of listening.

Slim Carrying Case: The Bose FreeStyle earbud headphones come with a slim, two-tone, semi-hard carrying case to help protect the headphones and accessories during travel. The case is 3"W x 5"H x 1"D with a zippered closure.
