Our take on the Bose® OE2i audio headphones by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
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 comfortThe 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 portabilityYou'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.
Good sound with Bose quality from a reputable merchant.
