Our take on the Bose® SIE2i sport headphones by Crutchfield's David Brown
Add Bose® sound to your workout routine
Looking for great-sounding headphones that can stand up to a demanding workout? Bose SIE2i sport headphones are comfortable, sweat-resistant and durable, so they can follow you to the gym, on the trail or anywhere in between. They may be tough, but they'll handle your music with care. Bose's exclusive TriPort® acoustic headphone structure delivers rich, full sound that will keep you moving. The proprietary StayHear® tips make sure these headphones stay put, even when you're in constant motion.
Control music and calls on your iPhone®
If you have an iPhone or iPod®, the SIE2i sport headphones allow convenient control over your device without having to interrupt your workout. The in-line remote gives you easy one-touch phone answering capability, while the built-in microphone means you can have clear conversations without holding a handset while trying to maintain your pace on the treadmill or stationary bike. Volume and track controls let you adjust your music on the fly, so you can skip that slow song and pump up the volume for those final reps.
The Reebok® fitness armband
The SIE2i sport headphones come with an exclusive Reebok® fitness armband, so your mobile device stays safely secured while you're on the go. The Reebok armband perfectly complements the SIE2i sport headphones' short cable, so no excess wires trip you up. But if you need a longer cable, Bose includes a 26-inch extension, so you can choose the length that works for you. When your workout is over, stash your headphones in the armband, and you've got an instant travel case, ready when you are for your next adventure.
*The remote and mic are supported only by iPod nano (4th generation or later), iPod classic (120GB, 160GB), iPod touch (2nd generation or
later), iPhone 3GS or later, iPad, and 2009 models or later of MacBook and MacBook Pro. The remote is supported by iPod shuffle (3rd
generation or later). Audio is supported by all iPod models and iPad.
I bought these headphones for my wife and she loves them for when she works out and the amazing sound quality.

Overview: Bose SIE2i in-ear sport headphones are designed specifically for exercise, both indoor and outdoor. They offer the same audio performance as other Bose in-ear headphones, but can withstand the rigors of an active lifestyle. They have been optimized to resist moisture from the weather or from sweat. The StayHear silicone tips fit comfortably, but snugly into your ear, and are designed to stay in place during strenuous activity. The SIE2i also includes an in-line remote/microphone that enables control for iPod and iPad, and hands-free communication for iPhone.
StayHear Ear Tips: The SIE2i headphones include three sizes of silicone ear tips (S/M/L) to assure a more accurate fit that's comfortable and stable. 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, as well.
Note: You should not attempt to wear the headphones without the ear tips.
TriPort Technology: Like other Bose in-ear headphones, the SIE2i sport headphones feature Bose's acclaimed TriPort technology. The headphones deliver wide-range sound, with deep, natural lows and crisp highs. Even though they are in-ear headphones, the SIE2i are not noise-canceling. They are purposefully designed to keep you aware of your surroundings while you are running through busy city streets or highways.
Cable and Extension: The SIE2i has a 32" cable that's long enough to reach your portable media device, and short enough that you're not constantly fighting excessive length. A clothing clip is attached to the cable so you can keep it out of the way. If you need additional cable, a 21" extension is included.
3.5mm Connector: The headphone cables have a slender, straight 3.5mm plug that fits directly into most digital media players, including iPod and iPhone models with hard cases, as well as laptops and portable CD and DVD players.
In-line Remote: The SIE2i has an in-line remote that allows you to conveniently control your music on your iPod or iPhone during your workout. It is also compatible with iPad, as well. You can also easily switch between calls and music when used with your iPhone.
Note: The SIE2i remote and mic work with iPod nano (4th gen and later), iPod classic (120GB, 160GB), iPod touch (2nd gen and later), iPhone (3GS and later), and iPad. Audio is supported by all all iPod models and iPad.
Armband: Included with the SIE2i is a matching orange and gray Reebok fitness armband that holds your device during exercise. It can hold your iPod, iPhone, or most any portable media device. It has a clear window to let you see the device's screen and operate the touchscreen controls. There's also a separate pocket for your keys.

The mic on this unit is only designed for use with Apple devices. You'll want to look for a pair of headphones that state they are Android compatible like the JBL Synchros S200a. [ Jeff Dec 06, 2013 ] Staff
My wife uses these and loves them, with no issues ever. I don't have the non-sports version so I do not know if one is stronger them the other. But looking at my wife's they are fairly heavy.. [ JEFFREY J Jan 10, 2014 ]
Chas, These are the most durable, comfortable sport ear buds I have owned. The sound is classic Bose, rich and delivers solid bass. The cord is better than most, in regards to not getting tangled. Some brands use a Kevlar cord, but I've found these handle most challenges. Hope this helps! Dave [ DocNurse Jan 10, 2014 ]
Yes, the covering is holding up well. I use them almost daily. Great for running and working outside. The original set cracked flaked. I have not had a problem with the sport version. great product [ ANTHONY S Jan 09, 2014 ]
No, it's the same thickness. [ CHRISTOPHER Jan 09, 2014 ]
I cannot compare as I only have the version listed. However, one of my wires broke after 10 months and sent it to Bose. They replaced it at no charge but it took 2-3 weeks. I also took out a Squaretrade warranty (real cheap) and they have terrific service (if needed). The sound quality is commensurate with the price. [ DASUMAKIM Jan 09, 2014 ]
