look good, but not worth the price tag (4 to 5 times the price of alternative gym headphones) and mine didn't last,
This review is from: Bose SIE2i Sport Headphone - Blue (Electronics)
I did not buy these on amazon (I got them at an airport shop). However, I thought that this review would be useful for somebody else. I bought them on the spur of the moment while waiting for my flight. Not my usual purchasing strategy but thought that I didn't need to review Bose headphones... I usually review, then re-review, then review before purchasing anything of any "significant" cost.
Headphones are decent, audio is fine, very comfortable to wear.
Doesn't appear to be "Made for ipod" any more than it's made for my android phone in that the "Pause/ Play" button works, but the volume one's don't.
As I say - they're fine, but there are many other headphones out there that work as well (if not better) for more than half the price. I've used another leading brand for years that actually cost around £25 and I don't really notice the difference between the Bose and those other ones... except in the cost.
As a follow up - these headphones no longer work with my brand new ipod touch (4th gen) and same issue with my Xperia Z. I've used the headphones less than 20 times and vocals can no longer be heard - makes the backing music sound like bad loud karaoke at this stage. Other headphones are working perfectly with the same devices. very very unimpressed :(. My £25 headphones are still perfect at this stage (not as snug in the ear, but great sound)
I recommend something/ anything else!
