Pros Very comfortable and secure fit. Sound quality among the best I have heard at this price for a non-noise-isolating in ear headphone.
Cons Does not block external noise - which could be a pro for some.
Summary I use these every day to listen to my iPod to and from work and I can definitely say these are a significant upgrade for anyone using standard earbuds, with very good sound quality and a very comfortable fit. Brings out subtle details in music and improves bass response with a much more balanced sound. Most Bose products are arguably over-priced relative to the competition, but this is an exception. As noted these are not noise-isolating, which I actually prefer. In their category I think they are one of the best in-ear headphones out there. Highly recommended!
Pros I have used Bose for about 5 years; I listen to music constantly and these are the most comfortable and best-sounding in-ears I have found.
Cons In 5 years I have had to replace my headphones five times. The plastic sheathing on the wire cracks and splits very quickly at the junctures with other elements. The newer ones which I bought 9 months ago have cracks at the Y-junction and at the bast of
Summary If the wire quality were better, I would be a lifelong devotee even with a higher price tag, but as it stands I'm looking for others with comparable sound and comfort.
Pros sound is good, fit is good, light and great for working out.
Cons gets painful in ears after a period of time (for me about 30 mins) sound quality could be much better
Summary if ur gonna spend a 100 dollars on earphones...DONT! save up a bit more and buy other bose headphones (the ones that go around ur ears AE2) the ones i want to buy after i try selling these ones :P
Pros Extremely comfortable, the Bose IE2s offer good sound quality with a decent amount of bass and a slightly wider range than some other headphones of similiar price. Bose thoughtfully included three sizes of inserts that easily slip over the speakers
Cons The headphone cable does seem somewhat flimsy and it is not long enough for my taste. Some might consider $100 a bit high for these in-ears.
Summary As a sound tech / worship leader / recording engineer at my church, I am always in need of a decent set of headphones that I can keep with me at all times. I bought the IE2s several months ago, and I've found myself using them in a lot of applications - mixing, recording and even while on stage (the band members all use headphones - no stage monitors). Admittedly, they are not ideal for any one of these situations, but I find them irrestibly easy to use in each scenario and use them a LOT. The sound is good, the length is just (barely) right for each instance, and most importantly, they are so comfortable that I can forget I have them in my ears. One thing I've found on stage is that I can hear the congregation a bit over the mix in my ears - this has been a good thing for me as I can get instant feedback on what's happening in the room as I lead the band.
Overall, the Bose IE2 certainly isn't for everyone, and if you require high quality and/or sound isolation for any of the applications I mentioned, they definitely aren't for you. But for those who prefer extreme comfort in an in-ear monitor at a relatively decent price, the Bose IE2 might be a good solution to consider.
Pros They are small and somewhat sturdy.
Cons Weird and an awkward shape to get use to. They only lasted me about four months. And started to show some wear and tear around the jack itself and around the actual headphone.
Summary If you buy them then just know to be extremely careful with them. They do sound pretty good but I would've rather bought some other headphones if I knew they were going to be really sensitive especially since I worked out with them most of the time.
