Features

Overview: The Bose MIE2 mobile in-ear headset lets you take calls and switch back to your music from your mobile phone with one-touch of a button. The Bose mobile in-ear headset provides quality Bose sound from your mobile phone while offering one-touch switching between your music and your phone calls, using the inline answer/end button and microphone. The Bose mobile in-ear headset offers a comfortable fit design with three sizes of contoured ear-tips. The Bose mobile in-ear headset is compatible with the Apple iPhone, as well as a variety of other popular mobile phones.

TriPort Acoustic Structure: Bose proprietary TriPort technology allows the drivers of the Bose In-Ear (MIE2) 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 (MIE2) 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.

Hands-Free Talking: When your phone rings, just push the integrated answer/end button on the headset's cable to pause your music and take the call. The omnidirectional mic on the back of the answer/end button picks up your voice clearly, so there is no need to hold it to your mouth. The other party is heard through the headset's earbuds. You can end the call with one more touch of the button, and your music continues from where you left off.

Single Earpiece Compatible: The Bose mobile in-ear headset can be used with only the right (R) earpiece in your ear. This allows you to take calls and still hear surrounding sounds.

Mobile Phone Compatibility: The Bose MIE2 headset is compatible with iPhone, Droid, Blackberry, and most popular mobile phones.

3.5mm Adapter: A 3.5mm adapter is included to expand the MIE2's cell phone compatibility.

Clothing Clip: The included clothing clip help keep the headphones in place when you're on the move.

bose mie2 mobile headset

Written By Richard, channelview texas on Friday, January 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Purchased my bose Headphones almost a month ago. So far I am very please with the product considering how many other companies have audio equipment out. I choose bose because of the numerous reviews and great reputation. I believe I made the right choice. They sound great with all types of music and I can wear them for hrs and hardly notice they are there. Will definitely upgrade to the noise cancelation pair they have now im sure if they will be well worth the money.
Pros:
Great sound quality. Very comfortable. Compatible with my android device. (Galaxy S4) great with all types of music. Also comes with 3 different size rubber ear pieces which are simple to change out and a very nice carrying case. The cost verse quality is fair for sure. Ive had many other brands and paid alot more for other headphones but these are great all around. Enjoy music it makes life move!
Cons:
I think the product is well thought out and put together pretty solid but they get scratches on the outside of earbuds fairly easy. And im very very careful with my electronic equipment. Also the rubber ear pieces break they are easy to put on but be careful taking off Ive broken 2 pair. I had to order another set. You get 2 pair of whatever size you choose for 4.50 plus shipping. Not so bad I guess.

Pros:
Comfortable, good sound and stayed in place.
Cons:
None-really.

Bose MIE2 ear buds

Written By Jennifer, Chandler, AZ on Monday, January 07, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These buds are pricey for what you get. Love the colors and durability of the chord but it allows so much outside noise in. We are motorcycle riders and these do not fit with a helmet on, either. Would be great for just casual listening and hanging out in the house but not for this price. :-(
Pros:
Durable, attractive (coolness), ok comfort, clear sound
Cons:
Outside noise filter, fits loose on ears, not good for motorcycle riders

Great all around headset

Written By WAM, Raleigh, NC on Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I received the MIE2 mobile headset as a father's day present and as a replacement for a Sennheiser sport headset that I had for a couple of years. The MIE2 has just as good of a sound and is more comfortable in the ears. The earpieces stay in place while working out and are comfortable for extended periods. I also use them has a headset for my android phone and the phone calls are clear and I've heard no complaints about how it sounds on the other end of the call. Only complaint is the length of the cord. I like to carry my phone in my pocket and this doesn't leave much slack for movement. The Sennheiser has a longer cord for one ear and works well once you get the hang of it. Overall I can highly recommend this headset.

Better than expected!

Written By Peter O, MA on Thursday, June 23, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just received these today and plugged them into my Sprint EVO phone to listen to music. The sound is fantastic, no comparison to the phones speaker. Im so glad I got these as I was a little skepticle about purchasing Bose for my phone but after listening to the first song I was estactic and it was well worth the money. I highly recommend these.

Bose MIE2 Earbuds

Written By John D., Redding, CA on Saturday, April 09, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
In spite of my average rating I got about what I expected with this product from
Bose and I will keep them. I used them for the first time while snow skiing
yesterday and they fulfilled my requirements. That is, they stayed put and were
comfortable in the ear canal, period. A plus was that the ear bud microphones
for the phone worked well while receiving and talking on my Droid. If that is
all you require of ear buds, then these may be the ones for you.

If on the other hand you think that just because you paid a lot of jack that you
are going to get exceptional sound quality, spend your money on a different
product. Bose doesn't include critical specifications on their audio products
for a reason. You won't find base. To own Bose products you have to enjoy
mid-range sound for the most part. I agree w/ the other reviewer that it would
be nice to have a volume control. In addition, you are not going to get sealed
sound, but that can be okay when riding up a chairlift or listening for skiers
closing on you. Cord length was ample for a tall person and overall quality
seemed okay, but almost all ear buds are somewhat delicate.

Overall: A lot of money for what they are and not for the person expecting an
exceptional audio experience. Comfortable.

Finally a headset for music and a phone conversation

Written By Matthew B, Louisville KY on Thursday, February 24, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I own my own company, which means I have to have my phone with me at all times and
have to answer when it rings. That makes going for a run or working out inconvenient. The
stock iPhone headsets fall out of your ears, and nicer "better sounding" headsets don't have
a mic for answering calls. After some searching I decided to try these. I've been
impressed. I find the quality of my stock iPhone headset quite good, but it just isn't made for
more than casual use, and certainly not for running. Still, it makes a good standard to
measure against.

The ear pieces are a bit strange to look at, but actually fit in my ears very well. They are
comfortable, stay put, and sound very good. No, you won't get earth shaking bass, but
overall they are a substantial improvement over the stock iPhone headset.

Other callers say my voice is quite clear, and I'd rate the clarity of my voice on calls equal to
that of the stock iPhone headset.

Now if I get a call while exercizing I can realistically take it, and have even continued running
for some personal calls.

I've only had these about a month, so cannot speak to longevity. But to date I'm very happy
with the purchase.

Amazing Little Headphones

Written By V, Providence on Tuesday, September 14, 2010
 
These tiny little headphones have terrific sound quality. Although they are not
designed for noise dampening, with the proper fit they reduce external noise
quite a bit. I am very happy with my purchase.

My only (very minor) disappointment is the headphones do not have their own
volume control. The lowest output volume on my cellphone is slightly louder
than I prefer to listen to music, so being able to adjust that with the
headphones would have been ideal.
