Pros I get scared every time I go to put on music in the library because I think its coming from my laptop. They are very comfortable and disperse pressure so they feel almost non-existent. The sound is amazing, sounds like it comes from full speakers.
Cons The price is a bit extreme, but it is definitely worth it if you want to make an investment.
Summary Bottom line, one of the best investments I've ever made (for the $130 dollar headphones and the $20 dollar protection plan, Best Buy). I was amazed when i played the first song, and I am continuously amazed every time I use them. Extremely comfortable, don't come out when you run, you can't hear them from more than 6 inches away if you aren't wearing them. Alltogether, fantastic product.
Pros Secure fit for exercise. inline buttons feel solid. Mic is clear. Non-sound isolating allows for situational awareness. Great sound after EQ tweaking.
Cons Pricey. Heavy on bass: EQ settings in iPhone4 (settings/ipod) fixed the sound it to my liking.. Case has no cable management.
Summary Best earbuds that I've found for workouts. Tons better than standard iphone earbuds & much better than the apple sound isolating earbuds which I could never get to stay in while running and exaggerate the sound of breathing. Stayhear tips have a rock solid fit in the ear while exercising even when sweaty. They don't completely isolate you from the real world which is a plus for situational awareness.. Inline Mic works great, allows you to use voice control on Iphone4.
Pros -Bass is deep and rounded, I REALLY enjoyed the listening experience, though that's just my taste.
-Really comfortable, I have average sized ears and had no problems finding a fitting to suit.
-iPhone functionality is fantastic.
Cons -Cable quality isn't awesome: Susceptible to significant strain near the fittings (remote and earpieces), as the cable is so soft, bending leads to cracks in the cable insulation.
Summary Really great sounding earphones. I found them to be perfect for taking calls, using Siri, and enjoying a range of music.
Less than a year and I had to put electrical-tape at the joints. I was taking good care of them too, so it's not just cable neglect! Really disappointed that after a year I'm having to get some new earphones.
I might give the MIE2i's another go, but I'm also considering the Klipsch Image S4i II which have just come out and look pretty good.
Pros Excellent sound quality as expected from Bose. The Secure fit really means what it said. It fits in my ears comfortably. I was so amazed with the bass when I played the first song. An excellent headphone for my iPhon4 with all the nice features.
Cons A bit pricey as much as I enjoyed it.
Summary Best headphone I've ever had and truly enjoy every minute of it !
Pros Sound Sound Sound, comfort and IPHONE control.
Cons None except for as mentioned the cost and maybe the construction being not so durable.
Summary 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 were taken off the top of my tool box. The were awesome sounding, full range sound way better than any earbud I have ever used. The ability to control my IPHONE was a big plus. I am on the way to Best Buy to drop the cash on another pair. Thats how good they are. I have owned several high end brands but these are the best to date.
