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.
