Bose MIE2 review

 

As the name implies, the Bose's IE2 earphones are the second generation of Bose's in-ear headphones. Truth be told, we weren't impressed with the first iteration of this model, which some users complained didn't fit securely in their ears and caused...

Improved sound; earphones fit securely and comfortably; protective carrying case included; "open" design has its appeal; pleasantly full bass; in-line microphone for cellphone use.

Fit may not appeal to everyone, especially those who prefer noise-isolating earphones; treble is a little on the harsh side.

The Bose MIE2/MIE2i headsets offer a good combination of comfort and solid sonics for the money.

Bose MIE2

 

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

The Bose MIE2 in-ear headphones don’t really have anything that grabs us. They had decent performance results, but not by a stretch that set them apart from the crowd. The only unique aspect of the MIE2s is their weird sleeve shape, and we didn’t think...

Bose MIE2i

 

A different approach to earbud design that also breeds a different sound ? but one that?s up there with the best

Non-burrowing design is very comfortable; remote and mic unit; wide, well-organised soundstage; solid and tonally balanced

No noise isolation; can be beaten for outright detail

Bose MIE2i

 

The Bose MIE2i headphones have been designed with the iPhone in mind: they sport an in-line remote that lets you field calls and control your tunes at the same time - and they weigh just 19g. Are they any good though? Check out our rigorous testing...

Bose MIE2i mobile headset

 

Since Bose introduced its In-Ear v2 earphones in 2007, they and their white-and-black corded successors have been firm favourites of many reviewers.

Excellent sound and construction

No ‘normal’ earpieces

Bose MIE2i earphones

 

Since Bose introduced its In-Ear v2 earphones in 2007, they and their white-and-black corded successors have been firm favourites of mine and other audio reviewers.

Excellent sound and construction

No ‘normal’ earpieces

Australian Macworld’s buying advice: The Bose MIE2i earphones are excellent and highly recommended. My only misgivings, and the reason they didn’t score five out of five mice, are those StayHear tips, which many users don’t find as comfortable as the...

"Second Pair and will be buying more!"

 

I bought this pair because I lost my the last one. The first pair was the last generation and did not have the stay flanges that this pair has, but other than that, they are the same. I read most of the review before I bought my first pair, and again...

"Great earbud. The best sound. Buy them."

 

I was about to go to Best Buy and purchase a set of MIE2I earbuds based on the ratings. I mentioned this to a friend who gave me a pair of almost new MIE2I earbuds she could not use. I enjoyed them for three days until somehow they disappeared. They...

Sound Sound Sound, comfort and IPHONE control.

None except for as mentioned the cost and maybe the construction being not so durable.
