“ Update: Reduced design rating due to ever-tangling cable. The cable is MADE with some type of built-in twisting/tangling design flaw. Just holding the headphones in my hand, the cable wants to twist and turn and due to its material, it's never fully "straightened out" like most other headphone cables. Due to this, it's become unusable. I've owned the original Bose IEs and now bought these...” --xx0xx
“ 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...” --kitten wizard
“ Impressed with the sound overall, balanced throughout the frequency range (bass is tight, medium to high frequencies not bad but I still think my Shures are better in the mid to high). That being said, the build is very worrisome - the right shell came apart exposing the tiny speaker and had to be glued. The cord is very flimsy and appears it won't take much of a yank to break the cord....” --jlopes89
“The Sennheiser HD-600/HD-650 headphones & the Bose SoundTrue Ultra earphones compared Big headphones and small earphones I've tried on earphones and IEMs (in ear monitors) from various vendors over the years but could never find any that were value for money and sounded good. Until now. Always a fan of the Sennheiser HD-600 and HD-650...” --skris88
“ (This is my first review ever so, if you see something you don't agree with, it's a free country. Voice your opinions. But this is only one person's thoughts. Take it with a grain of salt.) I've been hearing about this IEM for the past year now. I was most intrigued by the reviews. It was hard to see a review about the Xcited (and its older brother, the Xcape IE, which our brother Spica,...” --amzies01
“You can already tell if this iem is for you by looking at the pros and cons. I personally use it a lot due to the sake of convenience (rechargeable battery, noise cancelling, wireless) and it gets the job done. I might give this a five stars had it been priced $150, but every Bose overcharges. Audio quality is nothing spectacular, nor is it bad- it is acceptable. These are the best...” --Pawn
“ First off, there are counterfeit Bose IE flooding ebay like crazy, so buyers beware. It would be smart get yours from an authorized dealer. (In my case, I bought them used from a local friend who got them at best buy). The comfort is great and I dont find them falling out of my ears. No isolation to speak of, the tips dont seal, and they arent designed to isolate. The build...” --EYEdROP

The SW-Xcape is a more balanced IEM with a sweet midrange and nice bass, yet never compromises detail anywhere in the spectrum, notably the highs. Highs are neither in the forefront or in the background; they are balanced with the rest of the spectrum and are present as the recording dictates. There is a slight emphasis on the midrange, which is great for strings, vocals, and rock, but is still...
