Pros Great sound quality
Very good fit - will not budge while running
Cons After 11 months the sound started cutting - I think the wires have given out. This is the second pair that I will have to replace.
Pros Great colors
The best fit regardless of ear
Tangle free cord
Cons Arm band is useless for iPhone 5
Cord is short
Lets in sound
Overall sound is disappointing for price point
Summary Got these from a silent auction for $75 and really that is what they are worth. Bose are overpriced and overrated but for what I got these for I can see their value. The headphones hands down are the best fit ever. I have tried almost all in ear headphones and none of them fit this well with stock tips. By no means do these sound as good as my Klipsch X10 and they don't isolate sound anywhere near as well as my foam tips But they have the most comfortable and secure fit I have ever had.
Overall if your working out I can see how people would gravitate to these since they have a superb fit and comfort and they are sweat resistant, just be ready to be a lot.
Pros Stays in the ear, is comfortable, better sound than most other buds I have used, has adjustable length cord.
Cons There are no cons that I can think of. Cable works well and doesnt tangle, adjustable length is useful and sound quality is good for a ear bud.
Summary Debated the investment in these but decided to go for it and now feel silly I debated. They work well for general listening to music (though I use QuietComforts as well) these are great when on the move. I got these for exercise, running and cycling and they are great for that. They stay solidly in ear, provide great music. Where I live its often windy and these block that from your ears well (stopping ear ache).
Armband works well and the review is wrong (or band has changed) as it holds the Iphone5 no problem at all.
Pros Great sound, durability, cool design, Reebok partnership, and Bose customer service.
Cons They don't block out sound completely and in really loud environments you can barely hear your music. Price maybe too high for some people.
Summary I have nothing to complain about because I upgraded to these headphones for about $30 thanks to Bose excellent customer service that offered me that price for trading in my Bose IE2 for repair in exchange for this at a discounted price for being a loyal customer.
What separates these from the Bose IE2 is that they are more durable and do not fall out of ears easily even when your extremely active. I tested them on the elliptical for 45 minutes and it stayed in my ears compared to my Bose IE2 that would have slipped out due to the sweat. Also they are more durable, which is a good thing because I have rarely been able to get my Bose IE2 to last over the 1 year warranty and I used it often. The wires, sound, or something would always give out close to a year of excessive use so I am grateful that Bose came out with this and I hope to be using this for a long time.
