With Bose it just gets better and better. Ive had these headphones for almost a month and I have to say they are easily the best; With Bose it just gets better and better. Ive had these headphones for almost a month and I have to say they are easily the best; in terms of sound quality, build quality and fit.
Before these headphones came out I had the previous model which only had a mic. I was told that Bose did not have the rights to include volume control which was disappointing. Also with the previous model the fit was good but not perfect. As soon as I heard Bose were to introduce this headset I was extremely happy as it solved these two problems. The sound is good as ever with rich bass. Another thing that I noticed with other headphones is that whenever I used the bass EQ on the iPhone the sound usually distorted slightly. With these headphones I havnt had any sort of distortion at all.
The fit is brilliant. They fit in my ear like no other headphones. The stay hear tips sit in comfortly and no matter how much you move it wont fall out your ear and you cant even feel them. I found out myself when I had to run for a bus, they didnt move let alone fall out.
You can pause, rewind, forward, skip a track or go back to a previous track by a few clicks on the mic, and of course now you can adjust the volume without taking the phone out the pocket.
If you are thinking of buying this headset I highly recommend that you do, Im sure you wont regret it. The price may be on the high side but once you buy them you will never look back. …

Bose Vs iBeats by Dre
I bought these after a far from good experience with Ibeats by Dre (£79.99). They were heavy, fell out at the slightest knock, use I bought these after a far from good experience with Ibeats by Dre (£79.99). They were heavy, fell out at the slightest knock, useless for the gym, awkward to use on the tube or any kind of travel, only produced a good sound when a perfect fit was formed and the controls were useless. And dont even try to use these on your iphone, the experience is like talking while trapped in a mine shaft with your eardrums blown out. .......Anyway no more time on over priced bit of fashion / junk!!
These Bose headphones offer a perfect mix of in the ear and "over ear" music experience. They fit like a glove, don't need to be rammed in your ear, light, easy to use controls and great sound quality.
I chose these on the back of my Quiet comfort 15 that i bought about a year ago from Bose and these two products do exactly what they say with no fuss.
If you want a brand that delivers and doesn't spend its cash on marketing, buy these. …

So they a I bough them about 18-24 months ago and useing them with all of my "toys"; Phone,tablet,laptop,playstation 4 and vita... So they are in use;) There is no conection problem after manny months of use and there is no "cracks" when you movieig cable. They are really comfortable and is easy to forget that you have them in ears. They r really good if you an active person too. I've been snowboarding with them,running and cycling (Mtb) and they always was in place. Comparing them to beats... That's just my opinion but I will choose Bose,I think that sound quality is better and they fit better in ear.. My friend bought sennheisers some model for about 70£ sport version and it's exactly like beats...good but not enought..I will recommend Bose mie2or mie2i to everyone who like good sound quality and comfort and don't wont to spend a fortune..I really like to try Bose notice cancelation ones but in my opinion they are a bit too expensive... …

HOW DO THESE COMPARE TO BEATS BY DRE IN EAR HEADPHONES?
- Asked by Christopher M from Rosedale
I have tried my friends "Diddy Beats" in-ear headphones and they sound pretty good, my 2 major gripe I have tried my friends "Diddy Beats" in-ear headphones and they sound pretty good, my 2 major gripes with them though is that the tips are very uncomfortable after 20 minutes of use and the bass in the beats headphones are very overwhealming, it almost drowns out everything in too much bass.
The Bose headphones do a fantastic job at keeping both the treble and bass in perfect balance and the tips are made of cushony silicon so you can keep them in your ears for hours and they will continue to be comfortable.. …

The quality of the mic? Bose was not known for mic yet it seems no one talked about the sound quality of the mic.

The mic quality is first class. Have used it many times and the other caller has no idea I'm on a h The mic quality is first class. Have used it many times and the other caller has no idea I'm on a handsfree. Even today I took a call whilst out cycling and the caller later said they hadn't realised I was outside or even on a bike.
I have spent literally £'000s trying to find the right earphones and finally, I have found them. Highly recommend for sound quality and mic quality, although the best feature is the way they sit in your ears - wore mine on a transatlantic flight for 7.5 hours and didn't once need to adjust them - in fact forgot I even had them in. …
