    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.

    Good but not good enough

    • Written by from Sudbury

    I'm a big Bose fan, with a variety of lifestyle and portable products in my home and within the family. I was very dissatisfied with the first gen of the Bose BT headset due to the inability to use it outdoors (ex. walking across a parking lot) due to sensitivity to even the slightest amount of wind. I bought a generation 2 with the hopes that the advertising was accurate about it being largely immune to outdoor interference. While it is better than the original, it's still strongly affected by even a very slight breeze (far-end connection complains about loud wind noise). So, I've invested $300 into Bose BT headsets, but cannot use any of them anywhere other than when I'm sitting at home/office or in my car (which already has hands free).

    I would not recommend this product until Bose improves wind noise rejection. I'm not asking that it work in a hurricane. But, it should not inject loud wind noise into the far end in a 5-10mph breeze.

    Excellent Sound But Cheap Construction

    • Written by from MILWAUKEE

    I've gone through about 5 Bluetooth headphones and these have the best sound quality. The in-ear silicone piece is excellent very comfortable and doesn't slip out of my ear unless I really do some serious head banging. But the headset feels and looks cheap. I think it's a bad design. Very dated looking. Also the power slide button isn't real decisive. On many occasions the button was inadvertently moved to on when I didn't realize it and drained the battery.

    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.

    Bose is so good at packing in so much 'oomph' into such small products

    • Written by from FAIR LAWN

    I was begining to think that bluetooth ear pieces were a lost cause. Everyone raves about the Plantronics Jawbone and I tried it out last year, and it was horrible. It fell out of my ear as soon as I moved an inch, plus, I could barely hear the audio while on calls.

    Two weeks ago a co-worker suggested Bose. I invested in this ear piece and I've got to tell you that I am as happy as could be.

    Granted it's not like my Bose sound system in my car, or like my Quiet Comfort 3 headphones, but this earpiece is a home run in my opinion.

    They somehow managed to keep the slim and minimalistic look that the Jawbone had without it wobbling in my ear.

    As an added bonus: When I press the top button on the earpiece, it enables Siri, which listens to and executes Siri based commands.

    Over Rated

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    I bought this headset based on the Bose name, I had it a total of one day then returned it, I make a lot of business calls during the day while driving from client to client. Most of my clients told me that it sounded like I was calling from a tin can, and I also noticed it was hard for me to hear the calls when I had the window down. I purchased the Jawbone Era headset, and was amazed that the quality of the sound and the callers said that they could not tell that I was on a headset. It announces battery level, and announces the callers name when a call comes in. I do not have to hunt around for the call button to take a call, I merely tap once anywhere on the unit to take a call and tape again to end the call.

    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.

    Be aware, not good in windy conditions

    • Written by from Faversham

    I have read the reviews of other people and agree with nearly all-positive comments, so i won’t repeat them. Please be aware of one negative point, if its windy it’s not good. The person on the other end has serious trouble hearing you. I have had a number of complaints. Don’t buy this if you plan on running or using it mainly outside especially in winter. Normal noise like buses or cars gets filtered out without a problem, for some reason wind is this headsets problem. I have leant to adjust my usage to cater for this draw back, as i rate its quality in every other respect so highly.

    • Written by from San Antonio

    I own Bose products for my tv, desktop computer, iPad 2 (wireless speaker) and now this Bluetooth.i must admit this is my first Bluetooth ever, which I use for iPhone 4S so I can't compare to other Bluetooth brands. Yet I don't bother with other vendors when Bose has consistently delivered the highest quality sound products with the products I've purchased. No company or product is perfect but Bose is pretty close.

    having trouble

    I recently purchased my second Bose replacing the same model at only 2 years old. It quit the ability to pair with my IPhone. This one worked great for a month and now this one will not synch with my phone. Has anyone else had that problem?
