Well Worth the Price!

I LOVE these headphones! I've always heard about the superior sound quality of Bose products, but these headphones are the first Bose product I've actually owned. Yes, they're more expensive than most headphones, but I think they are well worth the investment and light year above the basic headphones that come with iPods or other MP3 players. 

I've tried non-Bose headphones in the $50 range before, and they were a disaster during exercise. The StayHere tips that come with the IE2 headphones are a wonder - you can run, do the eliptical, whatever you need with no issues. You get both StayHere tips in 3 sizes, and also the regular tips in 3 sizes as well - which to me goes above and beyond anything most headphones include. The IE2s also come with a protective case. 

Of course, I must discuss the sound quality since these are Bose headphones after all. The sound is simply great - amazingly clear and beautiful. These also block the outside sounds very well - used them on a loud street and on the plane and was very pleased both times. I'm a convert to Bose :) 

What did you think of this review?

I wanted to change out the regular buds that came with my iPod Touch because I'm always on the bus or train and walking all over the place. I was starting to get annoyed at constantly having to fidget with my earbuds to get them to stay in place. I might have to check these out! Thanks so much :)

Bose IE2 In-Ear Headphones: Better Sound Through Research

Dedication to research and excellence has been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. Since those early days, Bose engineers have kept their focus on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in Bose IE2 audio headphones.

Bose IE2 headphones
Enjoy more range and realism than you can achieve with typical earbuds

Bose IE2 headphones
Advanced materials, construction, and manufacturing techniques provide lasting quality

Bose® IE2 audio headphones set a new standard for sound reproduction that conventional earbuds can't match. Re-engineered from the inside out, they feature an enhanced acoustic design that helps music sound smoother and more natural. And its new approach to construction provides a more secure fit and improved durability.

More Natural Sound

IE2 headphones reproduce music with more range and realism than most typical earbuds. A modified port design, in concert with Bose's proprietary TriPort® acoustic headphone structure, results in a richer audio performance with more detail in music's high frequencies. More clarity, even at louder volume levels--an overall presence you'd expect from much larger headphones.
