Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

About Bose

Dedication to research and excellence has been the Bose approach to better sound since Dr. Amar G. Bose founded the company in 1964. Ever since then, Bose engineers have focused on creating better technology. You'll find that focus exemplified in the Bose IE2 audio headphones.

About The Product

Redesigned from the inside out, the Bose IE2 audio headphones have an improved acoustic design for a smoother and more lifelife listening experience. The headphones take sound performance to a level that conventional ear buds can't reach. They now also fit more securely and will last even longer.

More life-like sound

These headphones deliver an audio performance with more realism and range than most ordinary ear buds. Bose-own TriPort acoustic headphone structure and a modified port design work together to deliver rich sounding music, with more nuance in the high frequency range. Bose IE2 audio headphones offer more clarity, even at higher volumes -- an immersive experience that you'd normally only get from far bigger headphones.

Stays put while you’re on the go

Bose’s silicone tips give you more in-ear stability while you’re practicing active sports or exercising. The sophisticated design and materials let the tips sit comfortably inside the ear bowl, while following the ear's upper ridge. StayHear tips are available in small, medium and large sizes to fit wearers' ears comfortably for longer listening pleasure. The silicone tips have also been engineered to sit more securely on the headphone itself, so that they will stay put while you move.

Longer lasting

Thanks to improved construction, manufacturing techniques and materials, the headphones are built stronger than ever and will last longer. Each pair of Bose IE2 audio headphones undergoes thorough testing to meet Bose’s exacting standards for durability and performance.

Handy and versatile

Bose IE2 audio headphones have been designed for listening to music on MP3 players, portable CD players and laptops. The cable's angled plug fits directly into sources with recessed headphone jacks. An elegant, protective carrying case, with room for a portableMP3 player, is also included.

Features

Bose StayHear ear tips offer greater in-ear stability by nestling inside the ear bowl while naturally conforming to the upper ridge of the ear. The headphones’ enhanced acoustic design includes a new port that makes music sound smoother and more lifelike. Proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure creates a tonally balanced performance with rich low notes from a compact, in-ear headset. The durable cable construction offers increased flexibility and can withstand rigorous use. For a customised fit, choose between small, medium or large removable silicone tips. The headphones are fitted with an angled plug for increased compatibility with most MP3 players, including most iPhone and iPod devices, laptops and portable DVD and CD players. You can store the headphones and a portable MP3 player in the protective carrying case. A hologram label with an individual product code allows the headphones to be visually identified as a genuine Bose product. Bose can confirm the label’s authenticity by checking the security features embedded in the label. You’ll find the label on the back of the Y-joint's housing, where the wire splits in two.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my... 5 Dec 2013
Style Name:Headphones
Let me put this simply as many of my fellow reviewers have... this product is amazing, simply amazing.

I've had many in-ear earphones in the past and I never imagined that such amazing sound quality was even possible through in-ear earphones. Boy, was I wrong. These earphones can produce mind-blowing results - forget in-ear Beats by Dr. Dre, they're just a fashion accessory. Nothing compares in my opinion to these Bose IE2s when it comes to in-ear audio quality.

It most definitely is true that you forget you're wearing earphones just minutes after you engulf in music. I'm one of the few people who have rather large ears and so I've always struggled with standard earphones always falling out/ becoming loose. So, I've always used the little black padded buds to keep them in. No need for those anymore - these StayHear® silicone tips have NEVER fallen out of my ear accidentally in the 3 years that this product has been worn.

These have won me over - to top the audio quality, it comes with 3 different pairs of StayHear® silicone tips which you can choose to your ear size. Make sure you wear them correctly to achieve the best sound and comfort as possible (believe it or not, I've seen many people in public wearing these incorrectly, its crazy!).

PROS
- The Bose StayHear® silicone tips are the best out there for comfort
- Cable doesn't tangle easily as its fairly thick
- Supreme audio quality
- Incredible bass for in-ear earphones

CONS
- Expensive (you get what you pay for - you want the quality, you pay for it!)
- The carry case which you get is a little flimsy and weak

I've had a pair of these for just over 3 years now and they've only just started to get damaged (but that's my fault).

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny... 28 July 2013

Style Name:Headphones|Verified Purchase
Superb sound in every respect. Detailed and involving with beautiful balance and perfect bass. Also wonderfully comfortable. If you are looking for a worthwhile upgrade from budget earphones you could not do better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 10 19 Nov 2013
Style Name:Headphones
I rarely feel the need to contribute a written review, but my Bose headphones really are the best product I have ever lavished on myself. I use headphones every day, and have gradually gone from crackly i-pod headphones through various models of in-ear headphones an ultimately up to the Bose. I have been dissapointed with every other set of headphones I have bought, and none lasted longer than 6 months of near continuous use.

The Bose however...

They are simply perfect. I have run them for a year now and they still sound as crisp as they did the day I bought them. In typical Bose fashion, they have 'thought out' the problem of the in-ear fit, and come up with an unconventional but brilliant solution. The loops result in a comfortable and unshakeable fit that is truly faultless. No other fit solution works in the same way, and no other fit solution simply, well, works.

The Bose headphones are perhaps 25%-33% more expensive than thier peers, but are 66%-75% better too. Worth every penny and more. If mine were to die tomorrow, I would buy another pair right away and have a smile on my face doing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute delight! 13 Aug 2011
Style Name:Headphones
As an owner of the Klipsch Image S4 Headphones, I can safely say that the bose IE2s deliver.
The first difference I noticed was the superb bass, which blows the Klipsch out of the water. And even though the bose is NOT noise-isolating, it sounds absolutely brilliant, with crystal clear low, high and mid-range tones. The thing that impressed me the most was the superb comfort. They are probably the most comfortable earphones I've ever had. You seriously don't feel like your wearing earphones after a while. Yes, they are THAT comfortable. The IE2s come with some crazy-looking ear tips called StayHear tips, and they do live up to their name. They don't ever budge while exercising (even during my vigorous sprinting sessions). You can try pulling them out by tugging the cord and they still hold up!
Here's some quick pros and cons,

PROS:
- Legendary comfort.
- Brilliant bass, with crisp low, high and mid-range tones.
- Perfect for the gym, as they never ever ever fall out of your ears.
- Very good built quality.
- The cord doesn't tangle easily.

CONS:
- A bit expensive (considering the american version sells for $90).

So yeah, if you have £90 lying around,
and you need a pair of earphones, no doubt about it - get the IE2s!
Don't think, just do it!

5.0 out of 5 stars 1 Word explains them: Awesome! 2 Dec 2011
Style Name:With Apple remote
I bought the earphones because i lost my previous sennheiser ones, these tick all the boxes, firstly sound quality is unbelieveable. next they are so comfortable its unreal (so well designed) ive had these 6 months or more now, and there is no problems. the person that gave these 1 star must of had a fake pair or mistreated them really bad.
only thing i could think of to make them better would be to make them noise cancelling, but if worst comes to worst you can just turn the volume up and you wont hear anything else. bass on these are great and the highs are awesome!
There so good that im going to purchase the bose quiet comfort 15s.
