Bose IE2

 

Comfortable, surprisingly secure fit. Strong audio output with hearty bass response. Multiple eartips are bundled to ensure proper fit. Excellent value for price

Earpieces may feel odd for some. Secure fit can make for an inaccurate stereo image

These ear buds are a great buy and the new design puts them in a class all their own.

Bose IE2 In-Ear Headphones Review

 

As the name implies, the IE2’s are version 2 of Bose's in-ear headphone range. There are three different specifications available: the standard IE2 (which we will be reviewing), the MIE2 and at the top of the range, the MIE2i. The MIE2 headphones have...

Typical Bose - Great Sound, Breaks Easy

 

Disappointed.

Great sound. Good base and high fidelity. Very comfortable. Replaceable ear piece makes for a great fit

Just like my Triports, broke within a year. I'm pretty disappointed in this purchase. I cannot continue to support a company when their products almost seem like they're made to break ; The rubber around the copper wires on the inside is disintegrating...

Great sound, bad longevity

 

Great earbuds for sound, just wish they were better constructed, come on BOSE, you're better than this!

I bought a set of these originally from Circuit City when they were going out of business (loooong time I know) and was very satisfied with the sound quality and great fit you could get with the different sized ear pieces. I use them with my laptop,...

The first pair I purchased, even though they were kept in the case that came with them, never stressed beyond normal use (being in a pocket while I work out, etc) they had the problem of the rubber casing breaking down, and since the wire from the base...

I won't buy another pair

 

I got a pair with my Bose CD player from QVC. With in 9 months the protective screen came off the end of one of the ear buds and was lost. I took it into a Bose store expecting an exchange. This is a Bose manufacturing outlet store in Sevierville TN....

Alright

 

I decided to give the Bose headphones a try after reading several reviews. I noticed in the office there were a pair on every desk, so I couldn't go wrong. They fit very well in the ear. They offer what I call a "clean sound". Very clear and comfortable

Now the cons. The bass on these things is not great at all. For metal or hip hop they are just lacking in the bass. I have noticed that if I try and push the headphones deeper in my ear the bass improves a little. I have decided to keep them

Brought these headphones one for myself and one as a birthday gift for my husband. Always love Bose's equipment, you get the best sound, and the price is good. You won't find a better sounding headphones than Bose. Highly recommend them, you won't be...
