    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.

    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?

    Bose Bluetooth series 2

    • Written by from London

    I just want to share my experience with you regarding my recent purchase of the Bose Bluetooth Series 2 headset.

    As a iPhone 4s owner I need to be completely hands free while on the phone as I need to accesses information on the phone while talking and more so when driving. I have been through dozens of bluetooths over the years, and only buy high end gear such as Jawbone Era, Jabra Stone 2 and Plantronics.

    Had them all but not all met my expectation as a hardcore user, the Jawbone had great style but as I wear specticles I was unable unable to use the ear hook supplied and the rubber earbuds made my ear sore after 15 minutes of use and the sensor nib pressed on my cheeks and made it sore after a while. The Jabra was discreet but sound quality and battery life was terrible even though it had a charging stone, again this has to go over the ear and compromised my wearability as I wear glasses. The Plantronics had good sound quality but was heavy I looked pretty redicoulous walking down the street, makes me look TREKKIE!

    But now I bought the Bose and WOW!, amazing sound quality on conversation sensational when listening to music and I'm a big R&B fan, It blows any other headset I have ever owned full stop! Build quality is great and foremost the ear fitting is so comfortable you hardly notice you are wearing it and because it's also so light.

    My only negative comment would be if it was able to have caller ID like the Jawbone to let me know who is calling on my contact list and a battery meter on the iPhone and that would be the worlds perfect Bluetooth headset regardless of price.

    I hope Bose address this issue on future updates or future replacement models.

    Best of all the ones I've owned in the past five years!

    • Written by from Buford

    Alf Jawbone ERA
    Alf Jawbone ICON
    Plantronics Voyager Pro
    Plantronics Voyager
    Blue Ant Q1 or T1
    Motorola 720
    Motorola H17txt
    Motorola CommandOne

    Of all of these, the Bose blows them out of the water. Period. My callers report better understanding me, even in the wind and loud environments, plus I can hear them better. I have less static and the more clarity on both ends with the Bose. The volume is very loud...I have to turn it down past 1/2 all the time since too loud; however, the other models above would max out and crackle since no amount of adjustment was loud enough. The auto adjustment feature of the Bose is very subtle but accurate. I don't have to adjust it up or down a lot since it does it automatically.

    The noise reduction is excellent....and I think better than the Jawbones or Plantronics. I would hear before the Bose complaints that callers could not understand me or my voice muffled, but with the Bose I get no complaints and most don't even know I'm on a headset. I have no more people with that "your an idiot for wearing a bluetooth" tone in their voice on the other end mad that my voice is breaking up.

    Comfort is superior to all the others except maybe the Motorola H17txt. Moto had an ear loop and was very light;however, it was horrible at noise and clarity. For an "in ear" clip the Bose is excellent at comfort and only a couple times a day do I have to play with it to make sure it's on and in my ear. I forget it's there. It certainly is MORE comfortable than any of the Jawbone hard plastic and uncomfortable ear tips.

    You can update via mac or windows the firmware with their software application so the future looks bright for this little bluetooth. A2DP is nice to hear radio over my iPhone. Battery life is about as rated. I wish it had a battery meter but does beep to give you status.

    It is not fancy like the Jawbone with apps and voice changes or notifications, but it works better for what it is intended...that's calls and voice. I wish like Jawbone it had a tap to answer and tap to close. The extra apps with Jawbone were largely useless.

    On Siri it works great and no problems....the Bose is more accurate with Siri than all the others too. That tells me Siri understands my commands via the Bose better.

    Makes my life easier....sure, it's most money but rewarded in productivity and caller clarity and communication worth the extra $40 bucks.

    Note: I work over the phone and talk constantly on the go in the car, office or outside. I am a bluetooth headset's worst dream for abuse and critical evaluation, so Bose a winner so far in early 2012.

    works better with iphone4

    • Written by from LYSTERFIELD

    I bought this when i still had the iphone4 and it worked great,. Its uncomfortable to wear becouse the earpiece gos deep into the ear, thats how bose has achieved there loudness. I now have a iphone4s and i am returning this for a refund, its very hard to pair this with 4S AND THE DISTANCE THAT THIS WILL WORK IS GREATLY DIMINISHED. IPHONE4 HAS BLUETOOTH 2:1 AND IPHONE4S HAS BLUETOOTH 4:0. AND THE BOSE HAS BLUETOOTH 2:1,NOT WORKING AS WELL WITH 4S, AND THE ONE PRESS SIRI BUTTON GETS ANOYING BETTER TO HAVE A BLUETOOTH THAT REQUIRES A DOUBLE PRESS SO THERES NO MISTAKE WHEN YOU HANG UP ON A CALLER!!
