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.
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.
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.

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!).
- 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
- 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).Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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!
