Introduction

Bose In-Ear Headphones are in fact Bose ear-buds, having silicone rubber tips extending inside the ear canal, but without creating an airtight seal. The main frame of these rubber tips essentially sits outside the ear canal, meaning they might not isolate external noise effectively. That said this pair of headphones sports an eye-catching design, consisting of thick, black cables decked out with fetching and stripy wires of black-and-white colour. They also come with a skinny, 3.5mm jack that can directly fit an iPhone’s headphone port, along with a decent assortment of accessories. The box carries a soft and spacious rectangular case with sufficient room for stowing headphones and a small MP3 player. One also gets a clothing clip for the wires and lanyard for hanging the phones around the neck if not listening to music.

What is the sound quality ?

The ear-bud design of Bose Headphones allows larger room for including drivers, making it easy achieving top-notch quality of sound at even less cost. These ear-pieces however lack the detail, clarity and punch of the Sennheisers CX95s. This can be confirmed by listening to some laid back jazz, classical music or heavy-metal music. The gadget engineered by Bose is far less involving and float on top of music rather than convey it in all vital aspects. It adds a slight muffling veil to music, which somewhat robs it of its power. Bose In-Ear Headphones produce balanced sound that is reasonably-detailed though slightly deficient in terms of attack, bite and aggression.

 

Are they comfortable to wear?

Bose In-Ear Headphones lack a modular cabling system. This is different from Sennheiser’s CX95s which someone can split into two parts, which makes it easy taking calls without unplugging ears. The odd ear-bud design-style exhibited by the In-Ear headphones from Bose makes them quite comfortable to wear. These phones are accompanied by small, medium as well as large fittings to ensure they sit perfectly in the ears. As such, do not expect having any burning sensation as happens with prolonged wearing of tight-fitting canal-phones. In addition, they feel far lighter in the lugs relative to standard ear-buds. Reduced cable-rub amplification is also another advantage which comes with these ear-pieces as opposed to canal phones with a completely sealed design.

 

Conclusion

Bose ie2 headphones offer a new audio-quality standard for greater musical detail. Bose noise cancelling headphones reduce undesirable ambient sounds via active noise control. Bose QuietComfort 20 is a compact model of in-ear headphones that sounds great, is comfortable to wear, and provides very impressive noise cancellation. Bose QuietComfort 15 provides amazing silencing and sound capabilities that are unmatched by many noise-cancelling headphones. Bose ie2 audio headphones boast great comfort, sound and design and have high value and price/performance ratio.Bose Wireless Headphones offer a deep, immersive and better wireless experience all round.

The price of the Bose In-Ear Headphones is about $100 and they are without doubt a product of high quality. They are built well, feature a wide selection of accessories and work with the iPhone right out of the box. As such, the ear-pieces offer an outstanding comfortable option for those who dislike canal phones. However, they fall short in terms of sound quality, compared to their competing products. 

  • The Good :
    compact and comfortable in-ear headphones, innovative tip-design, wide choice of accessories available
  • The Bad :
    deficient sound-quality, less cost-efficient relative to other competing products within their price-range
Our score:
3.5 / 5
