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 MIE2i Mobile headset.

About The Product

Enjoy improved sound performance and more convenience from your iPod, iPhone or iPad with a Bose MIE2i Mobile headset. Take calls on your iPhone at the touch of a button. Switch between your calls and music with one-touch ease. You’ll never miss a call again. Adjust volume, play/pause tracks, skip tracks forward/backward, fast forward/rewind and change playlists using the integrated inline remote on the back of the mic. All with the audio performance you’d expect from Bose.

Improved sound, improved call clarity

Normal mobile headsets can’t match the sound performance you’ll get from your Apple products with a Bose MIE2i Mobile headset. Redesigned from the inside out, the headset’s improved acoustic design works with Bose’s renowned TriPort acoustic headphone structure to deliver an audio performance that is velvety and lifelike, with amazing crispness and nuance. You will not only hear your calls more clearly on the Bose MIE2i Mobile headset, but also in "stereo" through two earpieces rather than just one.

Talk hands-free. Switch at the press of a button.

One-touch switching with the answer/end button on the Bose MIE2i Mobile headset allows you to pause your iPhone media automatically when you want to take a call. The headset’s powerful omnidirectional mic singles your voice out from the background so you’ll be heard clearly – there’s no need to lift it to your lips. A single click ends your conversation and takes you back to your iPhone music or video.

Stays in place while you move

Exclusive Bose StayHear silicone tips offer greater in-ear stability during active sports, exercise or walking. Advanced design and sophisticated materials enable the tips to nestle inside the ear bowl while following the upper ridge of the ear. The tips come in small, medium and large sizes to ensure a comfy fit.

Stronger than ever

The Bose MIE2i Mobile headset has been engineered with cutting-edge materials and manufacturing techniques to be more durable than ever. Made to last, every headset is thoroughly tested to meet Bose’s strict durability and performance requirements.

The Bose MIE2i Mobile headset works with the iPod touch (2nd, 3rd & 4th generations), iPod Nano (4th, 5th & 6th generations), iPod shuffle (3rd & 4th generations), 120GB and 160GB iPod Classic, MacBook (Unibody), MacBook Pro, iPad, the iPhone 4, and iPhone 3GS.

Features

Exclusive Bose StayHear silicone tips offer more in-ear stability. They nestle inside your ear bowls, while following the upper ridges of your ears. Mobile phone calls become a breeze with the omnidirectional inline microphone, which you don’t have to hold to be clearly understood. The one-touch answer/end button on the back of the mic allows you to answer calls and click back to your music just as fast. Your music will sound smoother and more lifelike thanks to the enhanced acoustic design and a new port. The proprietary TriPort acoustic headphone structure gives a tonally balanced performance with full low notes - from a tiny, in-ear headset. The durable cable construction provides increased flexibility and durability to withstand rigorous daily use. An angled 3.5mm plug fits directly into mobile phones with recessed jacks, including the Apple iPhone. Store your headset, adapter and mobile phone in the handy protective carrying case. A hologram label offers a way to identify the product as authentic. The visual identifier, individual product code and several security features embedded in the hologram lets Bose check that the label is genuine. The label sits on the back of the Y-joint's housing on Bose MIE2i Mobile headset, where the wire splits in two.

What's in the box
  • cable (with clothing clip, microphone (back of button), answer/end button, adjustment slider)
  • carrying case
  • StayHear tips (L, M ans S)

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).

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.

These are the third-most-expensive in-ear headphones I've ever bought. Not the most expensive, mark you. But they are, by quite a margin, the best-sounding ones I've had.

I am less of a fussy audiophile than I've been in the past (a young family will do that to you!), but I do still very much appreciate and recognise good sound when I hear it.

When they're fitted properly, the sound from these headphones is truly remarkable. Especially with simpler arrangements and vocals, the soundstage they produce is wonderful. I feel like I've had an extension inserted down the middle of my head and the soundstage goes well beyond my ears. Listening to something like The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash, with its simple guitar and piano, you can hear all the beautiful resonance of the body of the guitar, every mute of the strings, and the full, rich timbre of his voice ringing out clearly over the top of it all. Choir pieces, like Down To The River from O Brother Where Art Thou, also sound gorgeous, with the whole ensemble audible. The crescendo, three-quarters of the way through Paolo Nutini's Candy is another great example, where you can truly hear the drummer working his way through the tom-toms and cymbals.

On rockier tracks, like Razorlight or Rage Against The Machine, they are less bassy than perhaps some fans of rock music would like, but there's plenty bass response (it goes surprisingly deep too). It's just that this response is part of a detailed, neutral overall sound.

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.

These are beautiful headphones with superb sound quality but in my opinion they suffer in two key areas. The first problem is that they "leak" sound and tend to result in scornful looks from my fellow commuters (particularly if sitting in the quiet carriage). Even with the volume at 50% the sound leakage is very noticeable. I have experimented with different fittings but all to no avail. I suspect this issue will bother some less than others but if you would rather not inflict your music on people standing/sitting next to you then perhaps look elsewhere. The second problem compounds the first problem in that unless you are sitting in a very quiet location the ambient noise can be a problem. Forget trying to use these on the underground :) To be fair to Bose they do clearly state that there is no noise cancelling technology in these headphones but wow my standard headphones that shipped with my phone do a better job of shutting out distractions. Depending on how you plan to use this headset these may be minor issues but if you are looking for an immersive listening experience minimising ambient sound and not disrupting your fellow commuters it may be best to look elsewhere. Top marks to Amazon for allowing me to return the headset for a full refund.
