The Bose® IE2 in-ear headphones are engineered from the inside out to deliver smooth, natural sound. Advanced Bose acoustic design ensures that you'll enjoy your music with lifelike detail and surprisingly rich bass. High-quality Bose construction provides long-lasting performance and durability.
Bose's propriety StayHear™ silicone ear tips fit comfortably in the outer part of your ear canals while their ergonomic design holds them securely in place as you exercise, enjoy active sports, or just listen on the go. A compact carry case provides convenient storage for your headphones and a portable music player. Just slip it in your pocket, and you're ready to go.
IMHO these are much like other ear buds. The sound is good, but the buds don't seem to cancel much of the external sound - other than the fact something is covering up the ear canal. They are comfortable, but don't rest your head on anything, such as a pillow. Sometimes the "ear adapters" come off when putting on or removing the buds.
The Bose IE2s are the best "in-ear" headphones I have ever used. Typically, I find these type of headphones to be quite uncomfortable, but not the Bose IE2. The "Stay Hear" earpieces provide a secure comfortable fit. They sound good and stay put. Having owned and enjoyed several Bose products over the years, I have stopped questioning if they are "worth the price." For me, the IE2s are a good value because they provide exactly what I want in a pair of quality portable headphones .
Pros: Secure Comfortable Fit Sound Quality Handy Zipper Storage Case
Cons: Kind'a pricey. Cord appears to be a little fragile and easily tangled.
this is my first time buying from Crutchfield and iam glad i did because these bose head phones are the best
Pros: these bose ie2 are great and they sound good
Great headphones. Excellent sound across all frequencies. After trying some headphones in the $50-80 range, I've come to realize that the Bose give you a lot for your money. I like the way they fit in the ear and have no problem with them staying put when I'm running.
After using the Bose earphones several times at the gym. I am very happy with the purchase. For an earbud type earphone sound quality is as expected from Bose very good. Please note under review one of the ratings is for (noise reduction) this model is not designed for that. The speaker wire is a little heavier than others but i'm sure it is needed for sound quality. Fit in ears well & do not feel as if they are falling out ever even running. Good product!
Pros: Sound good & built well.
Cons: Heavy speaker wire & price a little high
Bose consistently builds quality products but over priced compared to similar products by other companies. The fit is good but wearing them in bed as I do creates a little discomfort. Since they do not fit snug in the ear canal like a typical ear bud, some of the bass gets lost...I must press the buds tight against my head to hear the deep tones Headphones that cover the ear will do a better job for those deep lows. Otherwise the sound is crisp and clear. I have read some complaints of the cord being too short, for me it is just fine...less cord to get tangled up. I am not pleased with the funky bi color design of the cord or the right angle pin connection, it puts a strain on the wire.
So, if you are looking for buds that will stay in your ear with good quality sound than these will do the job but at a higher price than others that will do just as well. If you plan to relax in a chair to hear your tunes than I would recommend a good pair of headphones that cover the entire ear. There are plenty of places that you can try before you buy, there are Bose stores close to most everywhere, then you can go to Crutchfield for a great price. Happy listening.
Pros: snug fit, clear sound
Cons: Even though these buds do produce a deep bass, you will not get the full benefit of the rich sound as you would with over the ear or full ear covered phones. right angle pin connection.
while these are not sold as noise reducing, they do cancel noise pretty well. the sound, especially the bass, is great.
Pros: great sound, solid build, easy towear
Cons: none to speak of
I bought these headphones earlier this year. They sound great. But I use them portably with my iPad. Within a few months of purchasing them I've found the connection with my iPad is very tenuous. Now I often have to adjust the connection manually to get the headphones to work in both ears. I am not sure that I would buy them again.
I have not had many ear buds but this the best quality one that I have had. They sound better than others, more natural and are quite comfortable although the way they sit in the ear instead of plug into the ear canal is kind of strange and was a little hard to get used to. I am still not sure whether I prefer these ear buds or an over the ear design standard headphone. I could return these and get a standard over the ear set but I think I will keep them whether or not I buy another pair of headphones.
Pros: light weight, portable, comfortable, not much if any sound bleed out, nice natural sound.
Cons: Cord is kind of short for my use, have to be careful not to rip it out of the jack where I am sitting if I shift position.
Cons: NONE,,,wire could be a bit LONGER!!!!!
The headphones have the great Bose quality sound. They also stay in place during strenuous activity such as riding your bike and at the gym. I did 50 jumping jacks wearing these headphones and they stayed on perfectly.
Pros: Stay in place. Great sound quality.
I use these with 4 different players, from mini disk to fm radio to mp3, usually at gym or hiking. Depending on the player, they have strange peaks, upper mid range, like the mid high aspect of a snare drum, that becomes annoying. Also, the ear shaped inserts are hard and slow to put in and out, like when you stop to say hi to someone.
Pros: Seem to be nice quality.
Cons: Sound with mid-high volume peaks, hard to put in and out quickly.
These give you the great sound you come to expect from Bose. Unlike other ear buds these stay in place and are comfortable. Well worth the money.
By far the best earbud headphones out there. The newer 2 version with the added piece really helps to keep the earphones in place. They are extreamly comfortable. Most importantly is the sound quality across all frequencies, from high end to a nice tight base. for any true audiophile these are the ones to have.
Pros: comfortable fit and great sound
Cons: as with any of these they are delecate - I have already broken two earlier sets, but keep coming back
Got a sixth star I can add? These sound almost as good as my big Bose headphones. I never thought an "earbud" style headphone could sound like this.
Pros: portable, big sound
Cons: Price... but well worth it
I've had these a few weeks and I am very impressed. The sound quality is excellent and they are really comfortable. I use them every morning at the gym and i never have to worry about them falling out. It dosen't even feel like they are in. Had klipsch ear buds and these sound better.
Pros: Comfort, sound quality
Cons: None so far
Excelent, balanced sound that does not overwhelm. Comfortable and light, highly recommended.
Pros: Clear, crisp sound.
Cons: Cord should be longer.
Save yourself some money and buy these. I have been searching for headphones to use while running, hiking, biking for years. I have spent many dollars on buying cheaper models that would not stay in place, had lousy sound quality and inferior workmanship. I could have saved dollars, time and enjoyment by purchasing these first. They are great!
Pros: Stay in place. Good sound quality. Well built.
After listening to these for a little over a week, I'd have to say that they sound pretty good for the money. The bass is solid and clear, but not overwhelming. There is the slightest harshness is the upper treble, but overall they have a pleasing and non-fatiguing quality to them. They are comfortable to wear for extended periods.
Pros: Quality build, good overall sound quality, comfortable.
Cons: No noise reduction.
Got these after my Monster iSport broke (my fault) and the Bose is much better. The Bose ear plugs are made of a silicone like gel that feels really comfortable. There are 3 difference sizes to meet your needs. They don't fall out when jogging or supine (when bench pressing). The sound is really nice too. Not much in sound isolation since they don't go into the ear canal, but I'm fine with that because I don't like the feeling on jamming something that deep into my ear. Comes with nice protective case big enough to hold the earphones and nano ipod. My best advice - wait until Bose goes on sale, usually twice a year they will discount their stuff 10%. Typically, they can't be discounted with coupons like at BB. Crutchfield remains my favorite retailer: 1) No tax 2) Free shipping and 3) Discover card Crutchfield giftcards through Discover's Cashback bonus. Thank you Crutchfield!
Pros: Nice snug fit Great sound Noce case
Cons: Black/White cord Very little sound isolation
I've been searching for comfortable ear buds with good sound. Bose lived up to its reputation and delivered. I have worn these for hours and I have to remind myself I have them on. And, they sound is what you expect from Bose.
Pros: Comfort and sound
Strong bass, not much louder than other headphones but quality of sound is much better
This is a very nice set of in-ear phones. I bought them as an upgrade to a cheap pair of Sonys I had been using. The first thing I noticed was a much wider soundstage. While I don't listen at really high volumes, I did not notice one bit of distortion when I increased the volume. The detail in sound is very good. It's easy to pick out specific instruments in a song or background noises on a show/movie. They are pretty comfortable, although a bit awkward at first. Nice touch that they include 3 different sizes StayHear tips. Definitely worth the money!
Pros: Very detailed, clear sound. As others have said, they do not tangle up like other similar earbuds. Nice carrying case included can also fit an iPod Touch.
Cons: A little awkward to put in your ears at first, but that goes away after you break them in a bit.
I bought thee bose for a gift for my wife the sound is amazing i felt like i was at a concert when i put them in my ears the fit is so great . she also loves them i will be getting a set for myself soon.
Pros: light weight sound is awesome once you try Bose there is nothing better
These are a good set of headphones. They are remarkably more comfortable than an in-ear version, but still have much of the subtle look of those. The comfort was the selling factor for me as the sound is about average for a set of phones in this price range. The bass is pretty muddy and at times overwhelming even at lower volumes. This muddiness led to a crackle (a moderate level of permanent distortion) when only a few months old. The mids are pretty good, though heavy in the low end but the highs are fine, especially when compared to what most people are used to like earbuds from Apple. The stereo imaging is also good whem making this kind of comparison.
The bottom line: the fit is the only selling feature but it's a good one, though the sound is more comparable to headphones that cost less than $60.
Pros: Extremely comfortable and stay put even though they are not in-ear 'phones
Cons: Overpriced and have a tendency to crackle due to overexagerated bass
excellent sound quality
Pros: deep bass,comfortable
Really good product. Like how wing tips hold earbuds in your ear without anything over the ear. Good sound quality.
Pros: Wing tips hold earbuds in your ear good. Good sound quality.
very good sound quality and very comfortable, even when running.
Pros: very good sound quality
Love these to run with! The clip keeps me from pulling them out. Well worth what they cost.
Pros: No wind distortion, sound quality is great.
GREAT EARPHONES GREAT SOUND
These sound good and are comfortable. Well worth the money. I tried cheaper but found that you get what you pay for.
Pros: Sound Quality, comfort
Cons: Little hard to get in the ear.
Sound great very comfortable stay in place while exercising. So far very pleased with purchase.
Pros: As above
Cons: There is no noise reduction.
The comfort and ease of placing them in ear is fabulous...sometimes I forget they are in. Sound is BOSE quality all the way....Easy to clean after workout.
Pros: Simple lock in position in ear grear for all sports and quality of sound is job number one for Bose and it shows!
I lost my original set and just replaced them with the same. I've used these for hundreds of hours in the gym and cutting grass. I've never any problems with them and they sound terrific. They don't seem to tangle as easily as other brands either.
Pros: All great, worth every penny.
I love this light weight head phone I use it at night to listen to my books on my Ipod and it is so light weight I fall to sleep with it on. I have The over the head noise reduction head phones for when I need complete quite. When you want the best ,you buy the best and that means Bose. .
Pros: THE BEST i HAVE EVER HAD FOR WHAT i USE THEM THE MOST FOR AND THAT IS TO LISTEN TO MY BOOKS ON MY IPOD SINCE MY EYES ARE SO BAD i CAN'T READ LIKE I WOULD LIKE TO. WHEN YOU WANT THE BEST YOU BUY THE BEST ,AND THAT IS BOSE.
I owned a set of first generation headphones, was amazed by the sound and the fit, lost while on vacation-replaced with new 2nd gen-even better. using for workouts, stay in ears do not fall out no matter what. love love love em!!!
Pros: fit, and sound
Simply love Bose products. Headphones sound great and price is reasonable considering the quality you get. Music is a tool for my work and I need to have good sound on the go. It stays in my ears too!!! Also I like the little case it comes in. Very useful.
I've gone through a lot of In-Ear headphones in the market, and usually comes with great disappointment. Most of them are extremely uncomfortable, and constantly falling out of my ear, and on top of that; trying to angle them a certain way to get the best direct sound possible. I finally purchased Bose's IE2 headphones, and I'm extremely satisfied. The sound quality is truly remarkable. Very rich and natural acoustics, and the bass is incredible. The coolness factor is definitely the fact that they're a Bose headset, so you know the value and luxury of owning one of their products makes you feel "cool". The quality over all seems very well built, strong and durable. They don't feel like cheap plastic. Comfort is one of the best parts with these headphones. The wing design with the silicone tip is freaking ingenious. It helps stabilize the ear-bud no matter what you're doing. It's a light-weight form-fitting tip is what makes these In-ears separate from the rest. As far as noise reduction, there is not active technology in the ear-buds to make them noise cancelling, but the tip of the ear-bud fills the ear pretty well and naturally blocks out outside noise. Over-all I'm extremely impressed with these headphones and they're worth every penny. On top of that, Bose covers a complementary one-year warranty, and offers an out-of-warrant defective exchange.
Pros: Sound, design, and comfort. Also comes with a protective case (size of an iPhone) with three different silicone tip sizes.
Great product you cant loose with a Bose product.Great headphones for the money.
Pros: Great sound Great fit
My Bose head phones were a gift and are amazing. I wear them all the time. I have tried others and none can compare. Thanks unisenmedia.com
Pros: Great Clarity
I got them for 3 reasons. They wont fall out when I'm running or doing a lot of exercise and movement, and would be comfortable. The sound quality was amazing. Finally they arent noise cancelling. I need to hear cars, dogs, etc...while running outside and most the time I want to hear my family and my daughter if they have to ask me for something.
Pros: Not noise canceling. My family no longer throws items at me to get my attention and cars dont sneak up on me when I'm out running.
Cons: I dont really have any, my friends are all jealous and my wife wants a pair of her own.
Item arrived very quickly! Love the fit of these Bose earphones especially since typically many of the other bud-type ones hurt my ears! These fit very well! As mentioned by another reviewer, these don't require you to insert them into your ear canal and the gel comfort piece keeps them secure. Love the sound! Happy so far!
So Far I am completely impressed with these headphones. They are perhaps the most comfortable that I have ever used, and the sound quality is typical for Bose... Fantastic! We will see how they last, but if past Bose products I own are any indicator I suspect I will be enjoying these for many years to come.
Pros: Light weight, Extremely Comfortable, great base response & crystal clear highs, non isolation so external sounds can still be heard
Cons: non isolation so external sounds can still be heard
Picked these up after a few unhappy purchases of other in ear headphones, these are fantastic sound is amazing.absolutley would recommend.
Cons: they sit in the ear weird but doesn't feel bad
The headphones arrived quickly and the sound quality was impressive. However, the left earpiece stopped working after three days! Customer service immediately sent a replacement which has lasted a week so far. They were very friendly. After listening for awhile, I like the sound. But these are probably not worth the money. They quickly lost their wow factor and I have concerns about their long term reliability.
Pros: Decent wide range of sound.
Cons: Not very durable as they broke after a few days. Pricey. Feel heavy.
These are the best headphones I have ever had. Truly good.
I have had a hard time finding "audiophile" headphones since many of the bud-type ones must be inserted into your ear canal. I find this so uncomfortable that I can't use them.
These don't require that you insert them into your ear canal. And the little horn thing makes them secure. I had a bit of learning to do to insert them properly, but it's not hard to figure out.
Oh, and they sound heavenly, too.
Just got them, got to say they are as good as my Quiet Comfort Bose head phones, wanted the same qaulity I get from them when I go for a walk with my dog. They did not disapoint me, comfortable in the ear like they say and feel good, sounds great.
Pros: comfortable, sounds great
Cons: somebody might have one but not me
Excellent headphones. Clear sounds, good range. Would reccomend them.
The sound quality is great. Just what I expected of Bose.
Pros: Good sound quality, comfortable to wear.
Cons: Cord not long enough
Great Sound!!!!! Worth the money.
I have a large selection of headphones and so far these are the best I have owed to date. The Bose have great sound, deep bass, crisp vocals; great for both music and spoken word. I would recommend these headphones hands down.
Pros: Rich sound, Very Comfortable, Nice design
Cons: Needs flat cord
these headphones were a gift to my husband who says he absolutely loves the sound.
Great sound but cables not strong enough for the price
i use these headphones daily for all activities and they hold up very well. (about 35hrs per week) just after 6 months the cable housing starts to wear away under earbuds (no damage to wires). Bose customer service will replace them within 1 full year from purchase with no hassle (just call them describe damage).
they are light-weight you barely notice you are wearing them after getting use to the new Stayhear ear tips. a major improvement over the standard ones.
the sound has greatly improved. allowing clearer sounds for all types of music. with other headphones i played music at 90% max volume. with these i am able to have the volume at <50% for same level of sound.
Pros: Durable, great sounding, light weight.
Cons: the life of the cables. I use them about 5hrs daily, 7 days a week. Most likely on my end. the cables start to wear away after 6 months of extremely heavy use.
This is my 2nd set of IE headphones and as always Bose sound reproduction is second to none.
Definitely much better than the 1st Bose head phones. Earbuds makes these headphone feel like they aren't even on. However, I get better clarity and sound from my Beats Tour head phones. I still use my beats over the Bose.
Great quality product. Tried several others prior to this, but by far this is the best in this price range. Extremely comfortable and excellent sound quality. Carrying case is an added convenience.
The only reason I got the new IE2 was because the wire on my first BOSE IE was ruined by my bird. Yup, my bird kept biting the wire and got through it. So I needed a new one. I did some review and found Klipsch image S4 was a good buy. So I got it. Im not sure what the experts heard from the klipsch, but the sound quality from the klipsch was mediocre. It wasnt even close to what I expected. I returned the Klipsch, got the BOSE, Couldnt be happier. Sound quality from the BOSE is still the best. I just wished the wire was a little bit longer. I know one thing, Im never going back to any other brands.
I purchased these because of the stellar reviews from everyone else. Prior I have owned the Bose OE. The buds are very light and comfortable. I have not had to adjust them while running/exercising. I don't even realize that they are there. Primarily I utilize them while exercising outside and find myself having to turn up the volume higher than I typically would as there is much more external noise that filters through than what I expected. There is also a strange clicking sound if you don't attach the shirt clip. I ended ordering the Bose OE and giving these to my husband. (he loves them)
These IE2 Headphones provide a whole other dimension when listening to
portable electronics. You don't know what you're missing until you replace the
standard issue headphones with these Bose headphones. I use these to listen to
my iPod, bass trainer and also as an in-ear monitor headphone for my band. In all
cases these headphones sound great. It's hard to believe you can get so much
bass out of these tiny things.
The biggest feature are the ear pads. They fit inside your ear for extended
periods of time, without any discomfort. I've tried plenty of earphones in the past
and after a bit of time, they start irritating my ear. I can keep these on for an
entire day without discomfort. These ear pads come in small, medium and large.
In addition there are two styles, the kind shown in the picture and the older style
pads that (to me) fit more comfortably in my ear.
Personally I like the original IE headphones a little better as they don't seem as
bulky. But sound wise the IE and these new IE2 headphones sound the same to
me. I also don't care for the white and black cable, I wish they were all black
In summary, these IE2 headphones sound great, produce an incredible amount of
bass (without distortion), are lightweight and comfortable enough to wear all day
without discomfort. If these were to fail, I would definitely replace with a new set.
Once you try these headphones, you'll never go back to factory supplied
I bought a pair of these because I was displeased with the sound quality of the
earbuds that came with my iPod. They are awesome-sounding, and the curved rubber
ear inserts make sure these don't fall out of your ears. I would recommend these
to anyone looking for impressive headphones, athletes, or students.
I had a pair of these and used them almost every day for two years until the
left bud stopped working. I will order another pair. If your music on your mp3
player is a converted audio file, you are going to lose some of the sound
quality, it has nothing to do with the earphones. Even so, I have tried many
brands of earphones over the years and these are a step above the rest for
music, but the real difference comes when you use them when watching movies.
Wow! No other pair comes close for movies.
More comfortable than the the previous model, but tone quality seems less than previous model
I received a new ipod for Christmas and haven't used it much because I could not get
used to the earbuds that came with it. I decided to order the Bose IE2 headphones to
see if they would feel better in my ears. I am very pleased to say that in addition to being
more comfortable they also sound great. My wife now wants a pair to go with her new
By Far The Best Sound Quality I Have Ever Heard From An Earphone. Being Confortable,
Sounding Great, and Being Extremely Durable is Only The Begging. I Would Recommend
Bose Headphones to Everyone.
I had a pair of these and my girlfriend put em through the washer and dryer, so i
wanted to try another kind that go into the ear canal instead to cancel more sound out,
i went with monster turbines after a month of the monsters im wishing i had bought the
bose agian the sound of the bose is absolutely amazing, get em ! the fit is diff then the
others but the bass and the sound is the best ive heard.
Amazing sound and extremely comfortable. Highly recommended. And, of course,
excellent Crutchfield service.
after reading the reviews and considering the notoriety of the bose name, I decided to give these ear buds a try.
and i must say.... im disappointed
i was trying to find something to replace my $30 dollar ear buds. I'm big on sound quality, but couldn't bring myself to spend hundreds of dollars on ear buds. to my disappointment, I find the sound in my old ear buds to be about the same as these bose ear buds. I did side by side comparisons on many different kinds of music and my $30 ear buds are barely, just barely lower in quality. these bose ear buds are not worth the extra money. i wouldn't waste my money.
I take customer ratings very serious. After reading reviews on this item I knew I had to
have them. The product name carries a lot of weight but I can truly say these
headphones are the greatest!!! I really like the snug fit, sleek carrying case, and the
clear, crisp sound that comes out of these little babies as well. I am dealing with a five-
star company with five-star products.....what more can I say. Thanks Crutchfield-you've
allowed me to be a satisfied customer once again.
First thing. I have owned/own multiple sets of Bose over-the-ear headphones and earbuds.
I got my Triport earbuds(it's the previous version) a couple years ago. They were great, except sometimes the ear pieces would fall out. Bose has since fixed this problem. These IE2 earbuds come with new ear pieces which fit well and stay in (I use the small set). Although the previous earbuds are still included.
As you would expect, the sound quality is excellent! Note: these are not noise canceling ear buds. Therefore you can hear some loud sounds in the background such as vacuuming, etc. However, I prefer these to my old noise canceling ear buds.
In addition, it includes a clip that you can use to clip to your shirt (which my previous set did not have).
Finally, because my old Triports died after a few years (the sound got crackly if you touched the base of the cord and the sound went in and out), Bose happily replaced them in store.
These earbuds come with a 1 year warranty.
Would strongly recommend to anyone. (Especially those who want to hear their music clearly and tell which mp3's are low vs. high quality)

Overview: Bose IE2 audio in-ear headphones have been-engineered from the inside out to deliver better audio quality and great musical detail. The Bose IE2s feature an enhanced acoustic design that helps music sound smoother and more natural. And its new construction provides a more secure fit and improved durability.
TriPort Acoustic Structure: Bose proprietary TriPort technology allows the drivers of the Bose In-Ear (IE2) headphones to create deep lows while keeping the headphones small and lightweight. The result is comfortable headphones that deliver full, balanced low notes of your music.
Enhanced Acoustic Design: The Bose In-Ear (IE2) headphones utilize an enhanced acoustic design which incorporates a new port to help music sound smoother and more natural.
In-Ear Design: The Comfortable in-ear design gives you earbud-style headphones with soft silicone ear-tips that rest gently and securely in your ears. The headphones are marked with left (L) and right (R) markings for easy identification.
Silicone Ear-Tips: The Bose headphones come supplied with "StayHear" silicone ear-tips in three sizes (S/M/L) to help assure a more accurate fit that's comfortable and stable. Proprietary "StayHear" silicone ear-tips offer greater in-ear stability 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: Do not attempt to wear the headphones without the ear-tips.
Durable Construction: Bose IE2 headphones are sturdy and durable thanks to advanced materials, construction and manufacturing techniques. Each pair undergoes rigorous testing to meet Bose standards for performance and durability.
Flexible Cable: Reliable cable construction enhances flexibility and durability to better withstand the rigors of everyday use. The headphone cable features an adjustment solider to reduce or increased the amount of loose cord between the left and right earpiece.
3.5mm Connector: The headphone's angled 3.5mm plug fits directly into most MP3 players, including iPod and iPhone models, as well as laptops and portable CD and DVD players.
Clothing Clip: The included clothing clip help keep the headphones in place when you're on the move. Use the clothing clip to fasten the cable to your clothing, for convenience, stability, and to help manage the cable. This can be helpful during high-movement activities or when using the headphones in a single earpiece configuration.
Carrying Case: The headphones also come with a small carrying case that protects the headphones when not in use. The sleek, black case is large enough to carry many portable MP3 digital audio players.
