Bose SIE2i

 

Bose is no stranger to the earphone market, but until now, hasn't delivered an exercise-focused pair. The Bose SIE2i ($149.95 direct) is moisture-proof, secure-fitting, and comes with an armband and inline controls for the iPhone. (The SIE2—without...

Quality, clean audio performance. Secure fit for exercise. iPhone controls and microphone. Reebok-designed armband for iPhone is included. Shorter cable is optimized for workouts, extension cable included

Although secure, the eartips have an open design that might not appeal to everyone. Current armband not optimized for iPhone 5. Design colors not for everyone. Sculpted frequency response not for audio purists

The Bose SIE2i earphones deliver rich bass and clean audio performance in a moisture-proof, exercise-friendly design.

Bose SIE2i Sport Earphones Review

 

The Bose SIE2i is clearly meant for someone who doesn't want to be torn away from their music, no matter if it is raining, or he/she is in the gym sweating it out on a treadmill. It has very good vocal clarity, but bass punch seems to be a little...

Very clear vocal reproduction, Good audio handling at high volumes, The 'i' versions get microphones for calling, In-line volume controls are helpful, Short cable setup for when using the armband, Well built, Surprisingly light in the ear

Too much ambient sound trickles in, Bass isn't very powerful, Eartips are unforgiving, if not using correct size

First On TechTree: Review — Bose SIE2i

 

Comfortable fit; Great sound; Sweat-resistant; iPhone-compatible; Reebok armband

Expensive; Armband pouch too small for the iPhone 5

The Bose SIE2i is an excellent performer. Although not audiophile-grade, it does sound very good. The open design makes it comfortable to wear even when it's hot, and the design ensures that sweat never enters the speaker section. The silicone rubber...

Bose releases SIE2 and SIE2i sports headphones

 

Why shouldn't we have great sound when we're exercising? That's a question Bose asked and answered with the introduction of the SIE2 sports headphones.

Best Running Headphones Around

 

I reviewed this after my first few runs over a month ago. I have now run with it 5 times a week since then. The headphones are absolutely amazing. The arm band fits great, is easy to put on, and is mostly water resistant. It does, however, let a fair...

Great Sound. Water Resistant. Snug Fit

Arm band gets a little sweaty inside during runs

This is bar none the best headphones I have ever used. This is aside from the fact that I have never found a pair of headphones that don't slip out of my years while running until these. The sound is so amazing I can't explain it. My own qualm so far...

Amazing sound. Great fit. Durable. Look sleek and expensive

Armband allows sweat into pouch

Workout Headphones

 

Overall EXTREMELY pleased with this product. Additional equipment was a bonus as I needed the extension cable for my laptop at work.

Additional equipment - extension cable and iPhone armband. Shirt clip to keep cable from interfering in your workout. Volume adjustment on the cable

Need to adjust your iPod settings for best audio quality
