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. A compact carry case provides convenient storage for your headphones, and a handy clothing clip helps keep them in place while you're on the move.
I know they're not 'noise canceling' but they do exactly what they are intended to do. They provide good, clean, uncolored audio. I wear them at the beach all day and they never hurt or feel uncomfortable. The music sound clean and I can still hear my surroundings. Plus, if my phone rings, I can just push the answer button, take my call and go back to enjoying my music. If there is one word to describe these, it is, simply, 'Bose'.
Pros: Comfortable. Clear sound. Versatile. Unobtrusive.
Cons: None I can think of that don't defeat the points I made above.
These particular earbuds are the best ive found. I have 3 different sets of bose earbuds. I have the ones like these without the inline buttons, i have the sport version and i have these. The sport version has a cord thats way too long and inline buttons are too far down. The plugin is straight also and it snags on things. If u run the line under your shirt, you have to pull the line up to get to the buttons. These have an angled plugin and it lays close to the phone. Less snags. These also have the button up near the chin. The perfect place. All of the versions are super comfortable and they wont come out unless you remove them. They wont fall out. The location of the buttons, the angle of the plugin and the length of the cord make these my favorite. The ones like these without the buttons are also nice. The only difference is the lack of buttons.
Pros: Button location, cord length, security, angled plugin
Excellent fitting, sound,and lasting, period!!
Pros: Fit, comfort, quality sound
Cons: They don't last past 5 years!
My first set I purchased a few years ago to listen to audio books on my iPhone and also allow me to place calls when I need my hands free. Greatest sound quality. I could no never go back to less quality. I just purchased another set for using with Google+ for video conferences at work on my iPad Air.
Pros: Great sound quality.
My Honey's Samsung G2 cover was muffling what he heard AND said. Personally, I found it to be quite annoying. I bought this for him and he loves it because it improves his listening quality from my phone. I love it because I hear him much more clearly even on my flip phone. I definitely would recommend it!
Pros: Definitely improves sound. Three different pieces help to fit comfortably in ears. Do not need to get mic closer to mouth, it picks up fine just hanging below chin.
Cons: Wish it were wireless!
Excellence Product and service
My first pair lasted about 2 years. I'll be a little more careful with this new pair.
Great Sound, awesome quality
as a former sound man i will say this is a OK device way over priced for what u get its all about the trend out there
Pros: good built ok sound comfortable answering and volume remote
Cons: over priced
I vowed never to pay this much for earbuds but when I tried these, I was hooked. I have 2 pair. The old ones still work great.
Pros: They stay in my ears during workouts The sound quality
Cons: Price. I hate the price but for some things, you have to spend more
Overall not a very good value, I was not able to get a comfortable and secure fit, the remote was hard to use and they allow too much background sound to get through. Return s/h is too expensive.
Pros: Build quality and sound in a very quiet setting.
Cons: Price, really needs more fit options and much better remote
this is my first pair, have purchase numerous cheap pairs and used the ones provided by Apple with my iphone. All I can say is that these are outstanding. plus people you are talking to cannot tell you are on a headset. Great product
Pros: great fit and sound
Love it. Have never had a headset with such sound quality - and comfort. Thought cord would be a bit short (based on another review), but find it long enough for my comfort. Glad to have the case to store the headset in. Not the best noise reduction, but can hear what's going on around me, so I really like it.
Pros: Light and comfortable. Great sound quality. Great to use with iphone
good sport headphones. stays put when moving about. still very comfortable after extended listening. plenty of ambient sounds are let in for outdoor use/safety and bass is retained when indoors. sound quality is not at audiophile levels but it's solid with good spatial sound.
Pros: excellent comfort, overall sound and quality
Cons: In-line remote is awkwardly high and buttons aren't easy to distinguish, cord is a little short
I was looking for high quality ear pods that would stay put and but fit comfortably when out and about. Something between $100 and $150. Noise reduction was not important as I wanted to be able to hear activity around me (for safety reasons). I found the solution with the Bose MIE2i ear buds. They meet all criteria including sound quality but because they don't "jam into your ear canal," the bass response may not suit hip hop and hard rock fans looking for thundering bass predominance. However, you'll enjoy wearing these phones. They come with changeable ear piece fit sizes. A soft extension fits into the folds of the ear. This is what really keeps the phone secure - not rubber tips which push into the ear canal. The tip does extend into the ear canal but because it doesn't seal it off, you have less "feeling" that the piece is there but also lose some bass response. Overall, I am very happy with model.
Pros: Superb comfort, secure fit for out-and-about activity, overall sound and quality
Cons: Hip hop and hard rock fans might not find the bass response adequate - especially if that is the predominant frequency they are seeking.
Just what I was hoping to find. They're the most comfortable I've ever worn and come with three sizes of ear pieces to fit anybody. The controls are up high, so with an iPod inside a coat pocket and the cord fed out through the collar, they can still be used. And I thought other reviews critical of sound isolation was a good thing for me - I like being able to hear a little of what's going on around me. They sound great too - rich, clear, and not too 'bassy'.
Pros: Comfort, not completely sound isolating.
Cons: 'does not apply'
These earbuds came packages beautifully and sound great!
My son saved up for these headphones. He's a teenager and has tried every kind of headphone imaginable. All the ear buds fall out of his ear, he finds the over-the-ear ones really uncomfortable, especially in the winter. He doesn't like the ones where the band goes around behind your head, AND he wanted something small and light. We've tried them all. He finally decided to save up for these and bought them. They fit perfectly in his ear. He can hardly feel them there, the sound is great, and they don't want to fall out. He likes being able to hear some ambient sound around him, so he can hear when people are talking to him. These get worn on the bus, during breaks at school, playing sports, and relaxing. They work in all these situations.
Pros: Crutchfield promised us that if they didn't fit we could return them - that convinced us to order them and try them. They are comfortable, light, and FIT.
Cons: They're pricey. My son has worked extra hard to make sure he doesn't lose them. Some kids (and adults) may not manage it. We didn't care about the lack of noise reduction, but some people will.
I like the clarity and the quality of the sound.
These headphones fit very comfortably, but can't compare to the total sound quality that comes in a pair of monster beats headphones. Wile the highs are crisp, the bass lacks the thump that you would expect at that price point. If bass response isn't really a factor for your sound quality, then these are great, however,if you like hearing the boom, you will be dissatisfied.
Pros: Great crisp highs, comfortable fit, works great with iPhone
Cons: Poor bass response, too much ambient noise from outside sources interfering, have to turn it up all the way.
Everything good to me except the noise reduction.
Pros: Very good sound quality
Cons: No noise reduction
Have tried dozens of ear phones. These are standouts. Very comfortable. Can be worn for hours while still being aware of sounds around you. Music quality is the best, and phone calls are answered automatically with the music muted.
Pros: Light weight, comfortable, excellent sound quality
Poor for the money, I'll fitting, hard to wear not worth the money
Worth the money. Quality earphones with great sound.
Excellent product. I had to return the first one because I caould not change channels with it. The Crutchfield customer service was kind enough to help me out and sent me the new one out. This is much better althogh I still have some difficulty in changing channels but the soud quality is good.
Pros: Excellent sound quality.
Cons: Difficult to change channels.
The best headphones I ever perchest it has grate crisp sound.
These are great ear buds. They stay in place while at the gym. Call clarity is excellent. Music sounds good.
Pros: Great clarity Awesome Bass Great fit
I had a pair of the 1st generation Bose headphones and didn't like them because the earcovers kept coming off when I worked out. I tried the powerbeats by Dre but was immediately disappointed with sound and the way that they fit into my ears. But after hesitation I purchased the newer MIE2i headsets and I am well pleased with overall quality of sound and the way that the earcovers are formed to fit the inner shape of your ear. Now, I can hear the crisp sound that I like and not have to worry about them falling off all the time.
Pros: excellent fit, excellent sound, excellent base
Cons: wished they were a little less expensive but I feel that I am getting my monies worth with these headsets.
A great device & love that works on all i-devices. Bose far ahead of all stereo equipment. Great sound & fits on ear perfect. Great gift & sound amazing.
They sound good and work as stated. Not sure if they are worth the money compared to cheaper models as I am by no means an audiophile, but I have no complaints.
Crystal clear sound. So comfortable, you actually forget you have them on. These are not noise canceling, but since they're so clear, you really don't miss that feature. The first time used was on a 10 hour flight, they were well worth the money.
I tried several ear buds in the past. You either had to shove them deep into your ear canal to keep them in place or they would fall off with the slightest tug on the cord or head movement. The Bose MIE2i Ear Buds are a perfect fit; comfortable, light weight and emits great sound. Use of the Bose remote with the iPhone 4 is a great feature which produces clear voice transmission.
Crutchfield is a great place from which to order. Great packaging, support and marketing of quality items are part of their business.
Pros: Light weight and comfortable
Cons: Cord length could be longer.
'Purchased this item as a gift for my adult daughter! The sound is Amazing! No matter the item . . . Bose always comes thru! She LOVES them! Providing the 'multi-size ear pieces' is a plus - and they sit comfortably in the ear. This is definitely an item worth the price. Thank you, Crutchfield, for awesome service as well! I plan to order from you in the future. :)
I have always been a big fan of Bose products, but was very, very disappointed at the length of the cord on these ear pods. I like to put my IPod in my pocket at times and this short cord makes it too tight to comfortably wear the pods. You would think for the cost of these pods they would have given you a few more inches of cord. Bose should send everyone a cord extension!
Pros: Comfortable when not pulled by short cord
Cons: Cord is TOO SHORT!
I needed a psir of headphones that would dtay in my ears while workingout, these are them.
Pros: Stay in ear, can wash the ear pieces
Cons: After a while in they start to hurt my ears, ciuldnt wear them all day but thats not what theyre for.
I have had these in my ears for several hours now -- they are so comfortable I can barely feel them. No irritation/pain or adjustments needed. Sound? Incredible - but would expect that from a Bose product. I have had several styles and these are simply the best. The remote works fine, microphone (according the people on the other end of my call) say the sound is crisp and clear. I use this with my iPhone 4.
Pros: Perfect fit, Most comfortable, High quality sound
Stays in your ear and sounds good.
It's a wonderful headset
The multi size earpieces are a great add. The silicone StayHear parts make
the earbuds very hard to fall out. Great sound but still breaking them in for
better base response. Overall - well worth the cost. I've been a user/fan of
Bose products for years.
Good product, I thought these would eliminate outside noise, but still can hear
noise, such as airplane engines. Still good product, sound quality is good and
great for the i4 Phone. Would recommend product to others, except that if you are
looking to eliminate outside noise, you may want to setup to the larger set of
headphones, but those are large and bulky and these are compact and come with
a nice case
I brought these headphones, and absolutely love them. The cost is a little
much.. but your paying for Bose, and that makes them worth it! I brought the
extra warranty, because I have had cords wear after a few years, and if I can
pay the extra now to save later.. It will be worth it.. Works perfectly for
Connected this to the iphone and wasn't disappointing Plan to increase you data
plan as you won't want to put them down..
I have not seen any other headphones that look anything like the Bose "in ear". They are the most comfortable that I have ever tried to wear. As far as the sound goes, I primarily listen to my Bible through them, but the spoken Word sounds great. You can discern high fidelity in a recorded voice also. Clean. I use them with an older iPhone 3g. I like the remote. You can skip tracks, fast forward, rewind, pause, answer your phone, speak through the mic, and it automatically picks up where you left off on your audio after you end your call. The hands on research may need to be updated for the 3g. However, you cannot use the remote to adjust the volume on that particular model. At times, I forget that I even have them in my ears. They are that comfortable. I could not find them in my area, but ordering from Crutchfield was a good experience.
Very comfortable, could be used for many hours. Great sound. Strongly recommended.
I'm a fan of Boss. I had a few kinds of headset but this is the great one for Iphone.
