"Amazing Sound and Great Fit!!"4.5 starson by J-Lowder
Pros: Sound is amazing, bass is deep and the highs and mids are clear
Comes with small, medium and large buds for a perfect fit
Easy to adjust volume and pause/play music
Variable length cord
Cons: High price for in ear headphones
Summary: The only reason that these didn't get a 5 star rating from me is because of the price. Abound $150 seems a little steep for the price of in ear headphones. Pricing aside these are amazing headphones for working out or lounging around. They are made specifically for active use rather than just lounging around. I don't tend to sweat a lot when i work out so the water resistant aspect wasnt a huge selling point for me plus the fact that they are water resistant and not water proof will keep me from wanting to risk using them in the rain. It would have been nice if they had an all black model because a lot of people like myself don't like flashy coloring but the green and gray are kinda cool when I got them. Plus I believe they try to make them in loud colors because they are meant for running outside.
Sound- The sound is amazing. I had gone a year using the basic apple headphones that come with the iPhone so going from those to a pair like this is like going from driving a Prius to an exotic sports car. The bass is deep and the highs and mids are clear. They aren't noise canceling because of the fact that they are meant for people that would run while using them and it wouldnt be very safe for the user to not hear their surroundings if they are running outside. I don't really have a problem with this though cuz they have enough isolation to where i really cant hear too much around me anyway.
Comfort- The custom fit moldings that go on the earbuds come in 3 sizes which is nice so that you can get the perfect fit. When they are in they are almost non existent. The moldings are soft enough rubber that they aren't uncomfortable against the ear. They hold very well. For me personally I have never had a problem with earbuds falling out but I have heard a lot of complaints in regards to other headphones that they come out easily. With these there is no fear of having them fall out. The rubber pieces keep the buds in the ear very well. They are also really easy to put in. The way they look you would think it would be difficult but it isn't. When it comes to using headphones comfort is right below sound in importance. These do not disappoint in this aspect as well.
Extras- Cord extension; An extra cord extension comes with the package. The headphones by themselves are short because they are meant to be plugged into your devise while it is on your arm. I tend to have my phone in my pocket while at the gym and the cord extension is the perfect length to do so without being too long.
Armband- Bose paired with Reebok to create an armband for the headphones. Colors match the color of the headphones. I don't use an armband a lot but this one is very comfortable on my arm when I do use it. FYI the armband is currently only compatible with ipod touch or iPhone 4 or 4s not 5. Bose has said they will offer an exchange when the new armbands are available.
Usage- When using these I love the fact that they have the mic and volume and music controls. The SIE2I is the model with volume controls and mic while the SIE2 does not have the controls or mic. It makes it a lot easier to use rather than having to take my phone out of my pocket to change volume/song or to answer a call. While doing vigorous activities in the gym i almost forgot i was wearing them and they didn't feel like they would come out at all.
I would definitely recommend these to someone looking for a great pair of headphones to work out with. They are also good for just lounging around as well because of how comfortable they are.
