    Excellent Sound and best ear fit. Their Technology works as always

    • Written by from canada

    I was doubtful about this after seeing all the Neg reviews. Here is what I have to say out of my experience.

    Sound quality - the best, very close to my SEi2i which is amazing, I so wish they put out a Bluetooth stereo headset using the same ear fitment, I would buy it in a heart beat. Now for the actual communication part, it's the best clarity and I have NO PROBLEM using it with my iPhone 5S.

    I understand there is no a lot of handy gimmicks like headset battery status, or iphone music control function, announce call number, etc... However, it has the best noise block technology that works and that's essentially what you are buying! - a Bluetooth that works great for calls, people have no problem hearing me with windows open going 100km/h on the highway. It was never designed for listening to music or to be an extension of Siri - Just like you won't find formula 1 race cars with air conditioning and stereos, they are build for ONE purpose: to go fast!.

    Although I do wish they have the iphone music control because the music quality is so good, I am 100% happy with it as a bluetooth headset. It connects my iphone, my macbook without issue. And it does have Siri function by press the call button, don't even have to press and hold.

    I only have this for a couple weeks so I can't comment on how durable it will be, but I have owned lots of Bose items and they are all top notch

    Top Class Headset

    • Written by from Lara

    This is the most comfortable headset that you can buy. I have tried many others and NONE compare to the Bose. I can wear it for six hours at a time with absolutely no discomfort. It has all the functions that you need (except maybe a battery level indicator on the phone similar to the Jawbone Era). There are no stupid 'bells and whistles' that you forget about, just pure functionality with crystal clear audio reception and transmission in a variety of difficult conditions.

    The headset pairs easily with all our Mac products and in particular our two iPhone 4S's and two iPhone 5S's running iOS 7.1. Battery life is reasonable, 4 to 4.5 hours of talk time with around 100 hours on standby. The A2DP works well and listening to music through the earpiece is the best I have experienced through a mono Bluetooth headset. Good bass but certainly not over done.

    The build quality is typical Bose…..excellent! Yes, they are a little expensive but in the end you will save money because it will be the only headset you buy due to the superior comfort and audio clarity.

    If you are in any doubt, don't be. You won't regret it. I didn't!!!

    Incomparable headset

    • Written by from Boise

    Like many reviewers I have tried several brands, including Plantronics. Most of the time Siri could not understand what I said. Today I went on a walk in the wind. Every Siri command was understood the first time and when making a call I was heard with ease. One person I called referred to the sound of people around me but not the wind. I have finally found the right headset.

    BTW: I am not an employee or affiliated in any way with Apple or Bose.

    Bose Bluetooth headset

    • Written by from Wildwood

    in one word, Awesome!! I have purchased a number of bluetooth headsets from Plantronics to Jawbone all "High End", Jawbone horrible, Plantronics pretty good, Bose the best. None of the other brands compare to the Bose, easy to pair, easy to use. I'm on the phone in noisy envionments daily. From Airports to restaurants and everywhere in between, everyone I talk to can hear me loud and clear and I can talk in a normal tone. The biggest test; Siri, she can hear my request clearly and gets them right the first time. She cannot understand me with the other head sets. My advice, pay the extra money and buy Bose.

    Best Headset that I have tried

    • Written by from Crofton

    Here's the deal. I drive a Honda Civic which if you drive one you know is a very loud car. They have no sound insulation what so ever. I turned the air conditioning on full blast and spoke to my 70 year old parents for about 30 minutes or so. Those of you that have older parents know that the hearing is not so good when you reach that age.

    My parents reported that the the Bose was the most clear sounding headset that I have tried. The headset was also very clear sounding for me. Loud if I needed and also soft. Siri heard me well too!

    I tried the Plantronics Voyager and the Motorola Elite Sliver. The Plantronics was good. The Elite Sliver was a piece of garbage (I liked the profile and fit of the Motorola Elite Sliver the best, however, I could not talk to anyone because they could not hear me....too much background noise). The Bose headset worked the best.

    Bose products are more expensive than others, however, you get what you pay for. You can trust them to work well.

    High quality electronic componenents

    • Written by from montreal

    I bought a plantronics voyager legend and could not update the firmware, I needed to update the firmware because the sound quality in some areas was really aweful and I read in forums that it is fixed by the update. Did the firmware update and guess what I found out that I already had the latest version. Asked for a refund and changed it for Bose. I went to the same areas where I had problems to test it and it was perfect.

    It seems that the Bose has a stronger receiver than plantronics and the signal does not get distorted in those areas. Amazing Headset, I had three before it (jabra and 2 plantronics)

    Best ever hands free

    • Written by from Sale

    This is the easiest piece of equipment to use. Once you have paired it with your phone - it takes seconds - its ready to go. Simply press once to dial and once to switch off. It never fails. Sound quality excellent from both ends. Worth every penny.

    Head & shoulders above all others!!!!

    • Written by from Romford

    Quite simply the best out there, tried many others but never happy, only downfall is the relatively short battery life, but more than makes up for it with excellent sound quality! Very comfortable to use, hardly notice it is there, even hours later! Makes using a headset a pleasure!

    It's over

    • Written by from Staten island

    My search has finally come to an end, it cost me a few bucks and trial and error along with a bit of stubbornness to get here but well worth it. This headset will not fall out of your ear, allow me to repeat that, they will not fall out of your ear on there own and if you find your self turning the place upside down looking for them...check your ear, very very comfortable and very light. With large and callused hands I can feel the positive contact on these perfectly sized buttons with my finger tip which is a first for me. The sound quality? Bose would not go this far without giving you this also, after all, it is there signature. It is always nice to cut corners where ever you can but here you will find that you get exactly what you pay for...plus some. I will give this headset five stars because this is all that is allowed. As usual...Bose delivers once again.

    Works great.

    • Written by from Broadlands

    I have had this Bose Bluetooth for about a year, and it works great. I recently ran it over with my vehicle when accidentally dropped it getting into my car. I did have a few issues with it syncing with my iPhone 5 & my Ford Sync., but no problems with iPhone 4S. THe bluetooth version on iPhone 4S, is a earlier version than the iPhone 5. I went to Apple and learned a good lesson about bluetooth, that I will share here. Let me first just say the Bose bluetooth works great, and this is just my personal experience. The problem is Bluetooth v2.0 , 2.1, 3.0 etc.. is much different than 4.0. The higher the version the more bandwidth the bluetooth uses. Having two devices synced with the iPhone caused problems. The vehicles bluetooth system use a much larger bandwidth,(I think it's like 5.0), covering more frequencies than a headset. When I would have the iPhone bluetooth synced with the Ford Sync and the Headset, they compete for bandwidth. Even when only one is connected, turned on or even in range, the phone is still looking for the other one. This continuous searching by the iPhone for the other bluetooth causes problems. I deleted (forgot the devise), and it works without any problems. I use the bluetooth in my car instead of the Ford Sync, and I haven't had any problem with it loosing connectivity as I did before. The iPhone definitely has some problems with bluetooth connectivity. I was also told to sync the vehicles bluetooth first, and then add the headset. The vehicle will take a larger frequency range of bandwidth, and the headset will find a open bandwidth easier than a vehicle will. It's not fool proof, but it helps. I know it's a pain, but if you can sync you iPhone with only 1 device, it seems to work much much better. Hope this helps with earlier Q's about iPhone issues and Bose headset. Again personally I really like my headset. I work outside sometimes, and in a noisy shop, and it works well for me just like I was in my living room. Not to mention Bose customer service is great.

    No Comparisons

    Bose does not put its name on junk, you will not be disappointed. I have owned similar devices by different manufacturers and this headset cannot be compared to any of them. Excellent design & engineering, it works as advertized.

    Buy It. Nothing Else Compares.

    • Written by from Panama City

    I sometimes like to use my headset to listen to music in a social setting. I decided to leave feedback after listening to dubstep, yes dubstep, and it sounded awesome. I've never heard a bluetooth earpiece that actually had bass. Simply incredible. I've used jawbones, blue ants, plantronics, and more,and they are all good, but none come even close to the sound quality of this awesome product!

    Best Bluetooth headset I've owned

    • Written by from Walnut Creek

    I have tried several different brands of Bluetooth headsets and this is by far the best one I've ever owned I can be walking or driving Through a tunnel and people are unable to tell. I have been told that it sounds like I am there. The noise cancellation on this device is as advertised.

    Worth the money

    • Written by from Clifton Park

    I had zero difficulty connecting with my iPhone 4S. Great call quality, for once I don't have to turn the volume up all the way to hear clearly. Callers are impressed with the quality of the call on my end. Also very comfortable. This is the first Bluetooth I have owned that I have found completely comfortable. I also love having it secure and stable in my ear without the all too common hook going over the ear.

    Almost certainly the best...

    • Written by from Cheshire

    I use a bluetooth headset a lot - both for calling and listening to podcasts. I saw this one but thought it was expensive so ended up buying several others and being disappointed before then buying this (so costing me more time and money in the process). It's not that the others are 'bad' but they were just not as comfortable for extended use and the sound quality just not as good.

    The others I bought were typically more 'premium' models like the Plantronics Voyager Pro HD (comfortable, bit bulky and sound not as good), Jabra Surpreme (the one I would rate as number 2 to the Bose - Jabra Bluetooth Wave (ok found sound but just did not fit all that well) and a Motorola HX550 (good sound but did not fit as well). Think I also looked at a Jawbone but it only supported voice not sound for music / podcasts etc.

    Overall the Bose won - it's small, best sound (both for calls and podcasts / music) and most comfortable. Yes it's the most expensive (about twice the price of most of those listed) but if you use it a lot it's worth it.

    Best bass from a bluetooth headset

    • Written by from Singapore

    Coming from someone who have used jawbone prime, icon and era, i have to say the sound quality from this tiny headset blows the others away. The sound quality is just like using a wired headset and the bass is punchy. Having the ease of the multi buttons allow you to easily adjust volume and mute which other headsets with only one button cant do. And for those who use siri, this headset works flawlessly. A press on the call button will call up siri. I have tried with the icon and somehow the noise cancelling algorithm in jawbone messes up my voice which makes siri misunderstood me 80% of the time. Not with bose coz it does not use noise cancelling. Instead it uses noise reduction technology which does not synthesize your vioce like jawbone does. All in all worth the price.
