Our take on the Bose® OE2i audio headphones

by Dave Bar
Bose

Take calls. Take control.

Bose designed the OE2i audio headphones specifically to work with your iPhone®, iPod®, and iPad®. A three-button remote control built into the cable lets you conveniently answer and end calls, control music playback, and raise or lower the volume without having to dig your player out of your pocket. You can even enjoy hands-free conversations on your iPhone®, thanks to the built-in microphone. The microphone also lets you take advantage of the voice control feature found on many of the latest Apple® products. Just hold down the button and say your command.

Exceptional sound and comfort

The OE2i headphones let you experience your music with unsurpassed clarity and comfort. The on-ear design features padded cushions for hours of listening enjoyment. The Bose TriPort® acoustic headphone structure lets the OE2i reproduce deep, full bass, clear highs, and smooth sound throughout the entire audio spectrum.

Compact folding design for easy portability

You'll love the OE2i's lightweight, compact design. The detachable headphone cord connects to just one earcup, keeping tangles to a minimum. And when you're not wearing them, the earcups fold flat and rotate into the headband for convenient storage in the included slimline carrying case.

Highlights:

  • on-ear headphone design with soft padded cushions and adjustable headband for a comfortable fit
  • headphone cable includes in-line remote control and microphone for use with select Apple® products, including iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad
    • 3-button remote lets you answer, end, and switch calls, turn volume up and down, and control music playback
    • built-in microphone allows hands-free iPhone conversations and Voice Control with select Apple products
  • TriPort® acoustic headphone structure delivers powerful bass and clear sound
  • compact earcups fold flat and rotate into the headband for increased portability and convenient storage
  • detachable cable with stereo mini plug
  • single-sided cable design reduces tangling
  • carrying case
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Not Sprisingly, Great Product!

Written By Alert Consumer, North Orange County, CA on Tuesday, December 18, 2012
 
The quality of most Bose products are usually predictable! They are great, the only complain is that they are very expensive and I understand why. You pay for that high quality you see in products like Apple, Mercedes Benz, Rolex, etc.. Not a negative word about this baby!
Pros:
Everything about is perfect
Cons:
I haven't been able to find one just yet.

Excellent alternative

Written By EB, Durham, NC on Sunday, February 26, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Excellent sound, though not quite up to the quality of the Bose noise canceling headphones. A great choice if you do not like ear buds.
Pros:
Light weight. Not noise canceling, so you can hear a fire truck coming! Excellent sound. Does not require any battery, so will not get caught with no sound.
Cons:
Sound not quite up to the Bose noise canceling headphones. (Those models are considerable more expensive.)
