Advanced Bose audio technology ensures that you'll hear lifelike detail and surprisingly rich bass.
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.

Overview: The Bose MIE2i mobile in-ear headset is designed specifically for use with select Apple iPods and iPhones. The Bose MIE2i mobile headset lets you take calls and switch back to your music from your iPhone with one-touch of a button. The Bose MIE2i also provides basic music playback control of your compatible iPod or iPhone. The Bose mobile in-ear headset provides quality Bose sound from your iPhone while offering one-touch switching between your music and your phone calls, using the inline remote and microphone. The inline remote also provides basic playback controls of your iPod's or iPhone's music tracks. 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 iPod and iPhone (select models).
TriPort Acoustic Structure: Bose proprietary TriPort technology allows the drivers of the Bose In-Ear (MIE2i) 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 (MIE2i) 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.
In-Line Remote Control: The cable included with the MIE2i headphones has an in-line remote control and microphone compatible with select Apple devices. The in-line remote provides basic music playback functions for your compatible iPod, iPhone, or iPad. The in-line microphone supports hands-free communication for your iPhone and initiates Voice Control on your compatible Apple device.
- Hands-Free Talking: When your iPhone rings, just push the integrated answer/end button on the headset's inline remote to pause your music and take the call from your iPhone. The omnidirectional mic on the back of the inline remote 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. The built-in in mic also supports voice control from your compatible iPhone.
- Music Control: The Bose MIE2i mobile headset offers volume, track selection, and voice application features for your compatible iPod/iPhone through the inline remote. You can adjust volume up/down, play/pause tracks, skip tracks (forward/backward), fast forward/rewind within a track, and change playlists.
iPod/iPhone/iPad Compatibility Chart: The Bose MIE2i headphones are "Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad" compatible and support the following models and functions (as of 12/29/2011).
|iPod Model||Generation||Tested Version||Audio Output||In-Line Remote||In-Line Mic|

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until a newer software update is available.
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.
Durable Construction: Bose MIE2i 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: You can connect the headset to your Apple iPod or iPhone with the gold-plated right-angle 3.5mm stereo connector (compatible with standard headphone jack).
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 your compatible Apple iPod or iPhone.
