Positive Reviews


Great, not the best


Pros: good sound nice black and white cord

Cons: odd design to bud

really nice sound, makes me feel at home when on the bus, might not be a good thing though, the fit might not fit everyone's ears...



Pros: light weight, dont hurt, great sound

Cons: sensitive, east for wire to get cut

I had this Bose In-ear headphones for more than a year. they still work really well. They still provide great sound quality. I have like a small cut on it but nothing major. they dont hurt like other headphones do. When i wear them I cant tell if they are in my ear or not.They are that comfortable. I really LOVE THIS BOSE PIECE. Im glad i did not buy skullcandy or beats.

Skip these all together


Pros: Smooth...I guess?

Cons: Muddy sloppy woolly bass, no seal, microphonics, tips fall off easy

Really a horrible set of headphones for the money. I got these way back as an upgrade from stock ipod headphones and was blown away by the bass. At the time all I wanted was bass and boy did they deliver. At the time I loved them but as my music interests grew and expanded so did my realization that I had horrible headphones. Last year I picked up a set of AWEI ES-Q3 off of Dealextreme for like $5 and those were considerably ahead of these Bose in terms of balance. The tips are held on with a small groove which means they will fall off if you put them into a backpack or they fall out of your ear due to their lack of sealing. I can't even remember how many times I...

Pros: I got them for free, smooth and generally lacking harshness, powerful bass, decent cables

Cons: Midbass hump the size of Mt. Everest, way too thick-sounding and boomy, a bit muddy, poor fit and no seal or isolation with any tips

My much enjoyed Samsung IEM's died on me, and with needing something to listen to my music on and use for my audio/studio class, my parents gave me this. First Impressions: OUCH. I never had the greatest opinion of Bose headphones, but this was plain unexpected. Upon plugging them into my Samsung Captivate, I was assaulted by extremely congested and boomy sound (after fiddling around with the fit on all 3 tip sizes for a few minutes and completely giving up). Sound: If there's anything good about the sound of these things, I would have to say it's that they're pretty smooth. They lack any noticeable harshness in the highs and clarity seems decent for something in its price range....

Good, Not Great


Pros: Overall good sound quality,

Cons: Uncomfortable/Weird Fit

I Got these headphones and i have to say they have a really great sound. I like how good they sound but for $90 i can just get the Klipsch S4 or S4i.  The Bose has a good Low end for rap, rock and hip hop users. It lacks enough treble for the low end though. i Feel like vocals can be a little better as sometimes it sounds stall compared to my Klipsch and not as smooth. I feel like it has really good audio quality besides that and the design is ok. i dont like it because it looks weird with the gray oval but other than that it looks ok. it has a good fit and cancels a bit more noise than overage ear buds. I would recommend these headphones only if you really listen to music with...

Bose in-ear mobile review


Pros: Good sound, good mic, rubber tips don't fall off

Cons: Useless plastic Bose logo along the chord, weird side analog connector, no noise canceling

Bose has been a public commercialized product just like the Beats by Dr. Dre. They have been used by some friends of mine so i decided to give them a try but i didn't end up buying the normal ones, i bought the one with a mic to use with my PSP and iPod because at the time iPods and PSP didn't have mics and i wanted my portable devices to have one. After trying them for a while i stopped having to buy the skull candies because the Bose headphones don't break as easily if you take care of them and also sound better than the average 20 dollars earphones. These are a bit pricey at around 100 if i remember right when i bought them, but pretty great sounding audio. What can be a bummer to...
