"Money lost on overpriced, inadequately built product."0.5 starson by jamesantone
Pros: If I had the ability to use the features advertised for this product I would probably be able to give a Pro. Unfortunately the most important features (use with Iphone & speakers themself) have failed after ten days of use.
Cons: After only 10 days use, the left ear bud speaker rattles in its casing. The music control button (back or forward) has stopped working. I take meticulous care of this product for it to fail as quickly as it did, and for the price.
Summary: I bought these on advice from a friend to use with my Iphone. The only thing I initially used them for was possibly three phone calls while driving. After starting my workout routine again after the winter of walking and listening to music on my Iphone, it took only 10 days before the left speaker bud was displaced from its casing where you could hear it rattle when shaken. It also sounded like a blown speaker when music played. The controller buttons that are supposed to advance or reverse a song connected to the cable stopped working after just 8 uses. I had to use my Iphone to either advance or reverse a song selection. For the price paid for this product, you would expect better testing before putting it on the market, especially from a company as reputable as Bose. In contrast, it almost seems they used their name alone to price this product as I can spend $10-$20 on a pair of ear buds that not only sounds as good or better, but also lasts much longer. This has soured my thinking on Bose and I will consider this product the next time I need any sound equipment.
