2 out of 5 eggsTypical Bose - Great Sound, Breaks Easy

Pros: Great sound. Good base and high fidelity. Very comfortable. Replaceable ear piece makes for a great fit.

Cons: Just like my Triports, broke within a year. I'm pretty disappointed in this purchase. I cannot continue to support a company when their products almost seem like they're made to break.

The rubber around the copper wires on the inside is disintegrating and an alarming rate. I've not even owned these for a year, took amazing care of them, no sun, no spills, and I'm already taking wire tape to them. How embarrassing. After my Triports died, I went to a set of Sennheiser HD 280s. Comparable sound, and built to last. They have taken multiple drops, and held up perfectly. I'm not sure what I'll replace my IE2's with but best bet it's not going to be Bose.

Other Thoughts: Disappointed.

3 out of 5 eggsgreat sound, poor build

Pros: - The best sound I've gotten from a bud. Crisp and clear with some nice base.
- Very comfortable to wear. The three options are nice (large hurt my ears but medium was like they weren't even there).

Cons: I've owned them just over a year now and the right bid has stopped working entirely. I took very good care of them, keeping them i. The carrying case when not in use and not doing silly things like yanking on them. The rubber under the right bud was just broken one day and no audio transmitted to it. Very disappointed in the low build quality because otherwise these are perfect high quality daily use buds.

Other Thoughts: For this price you can get a pair of over ear Sennheisers that will probably match or beat these in sound quality and almost certainly in build quality. These are great buds, but you should invest your money in something sturdier and with a better warranty period.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Option for the Money

Pros: Solid Entry Level "High End" In Ear Headphones, Decent Build, Fit Comfortably, Decent Sound and Clarity with Solid Low End

Cons: The cord, as with most headphones is a little thin

Other Thoughts: I would argue there are better headphones for $99, and worse for the matter. These are a solid option for people who don't want to traverse an ever crowded market of "branded" headphones. You may pay a little for the name, but you will not feel like you got ripped off. I am on my second pair and they are my "go-to" headphones for daily listening.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat sound, bad longevity

Pros: I bought a set of these originally from Circuit City when they were going out of business (loooong time I know) and was very satisfied with the sound quality and great fit you could get with the different sized ear pieces. I use them with my laptop, phone, ipad, everything and I get great levels of sound for what I want. I am not a professional sound person in any way, shape or form, and am unable to give detailed specifics, but you get better sound that from any other ear bud I have ever tried. No fuzziness, great support for bass and good response in the highest levels too (to me)

Cons: The first pair I purchased, even though they were kept in the case that came with them, never stressed beyond normal use (being in a pocket while I work out, etc) they had the problem of the rubber casing breaking down, and since the wire from the base plug is set at a 45 degree angle, it very easily begins to degrade and work its way loose in the connections. I was able to get replacements because of these issues, and the newer ones have lasted longer, but the same problems are cropping up again. The rubber is completely off where it meets the ear pieces, and there are several cracks in the wire body. I have trouble with degrading sound levels and have to manipulate the base to get them back and be very delicate about moving it.

Other Thoughts: Great earbuds for sound, just wish they were better constructed, come on BOSE, you're better than this!

3 out of 5 eggsQuality sound but only lasted a year

Pros: Quality sound, great range of rich sound. Securely stay in your ear during workouts.

Cons: I've almost had these a year and the rubber casing that surrounds the wire has split where the wire meets the earbud on both L and R ear. I am a little dissapointed that as much as i paid for them they didn't even last a year.

While the earbuds stay in your ear securely they do not provide any sound isolation. When i'm on the plane i can still hear baby's crying, drone and whatnot.

Other Thoughts: I've enjoyed them while they were working, but it sucks they didn't last any longer than my cheapo sony buds.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Sound is unmatched by any other set of earbuds I've owned. They are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time

Cons: I would have liked a little longer cord, but that's about it

4 out of 5 eggsGreat headphones,

Pros: Great sounding headphones, started out the only person i knew having them, now a lot of my friends got them after trying mine out. Used them everyday great sound until they died.

Cons: Material on the wire isn't really durable, I didn't treat mine very well and the rubber around the wire would rip and expose the wires. After two years of damage control on the wires my first pair final broke.

Other Thoughts: Highly suggest getting 2-3 year warranty, I you use them everyday the they just aren't built durable to last longer than that.
I purchase another pair the day after my first pair broke. Love the headphones probably won't by a different kind.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very high quality sound. The thing I like most about these headpohones are that you can turn them up pretty loud (eventhough you dont have to) and still no one around you can hear your music blasting. So your not that annoying person on the subway.

Also, I really like the ear phones. They made them so that they stick in your ear comfortably and dont fall out. This is really important for me since I run a lot with music. Additionally, they do well with sweat. I sweat a lot when I run and I have ruined headphones. I have had these for over a year and they not had any problems.

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsAlright

Pros: I decided to give the Bose headphones a try after reading several reviews. I noticed in the office there were a pair on every desk, so I couldn't go wrong. They fit very well in the ear. They offer what I call a "clean sound". Very clear and comfortable.

Cons: Now the cons. The bass on these things is not great at all. For metal or hip hop they are just lacking in the bass. I have noticed that if I try and push the headphones deeper in my ear the bass improves a little. I have decided to keep them.
