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,
- 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.
- 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!
