  • Sounds fine, construction not

    The sound is fine but what I have found is that the join for the extension is that liquid (sweat) has got in and has corroded the The sound is fine but what I have found is that the join for the extension is that liquid (sweat) has got in and has corroded the jack, which for headphones designed for sport is a pretty poor design.
    Almost every time after use I have dried them off and put them in a moisture free environment so this is pretty big fall off for me for such an expensive item.
    Now I have to attempt to get Bose to do something about this as they are under two months old...

I've used other ear-fin types before but these are truly the best as i was very sensitive to the irritation from the others i tried before but the Bose ones are undetectable. These DO NOT ISOLATE EXTERNAL NOISE but thats a safety feature if you're outside cycling or running so you can hear traffic etc. Sound quality is very good and the best thing is that the arm band is the best i have had. I spent a small fortune on trying different cheap and expensive arm bands but they would always have some problems. Replacement ear tips and arm bands are very cheap direct from Bose too.

    Previously I have never managed to find in-ear headphones that stay in place (even whilst reading let alone running). I have there Previously I have never managed to find in-ear headphones that stay in place (even whilst reading let alone running). I have therefore been using Sennheiser neckbands as at least they stay in place. Unfortunately they seem to fail quickly and become uncomfortable after 90 mins or so. I therefore decided to spend a fair bit more on the Bose SIE2i (I was informed by Apple that they could be returned if they didn't stay in place). I wore them for a half marathon yesterday and astonishingly they didn't shift at all and were incredibly comfortable.
    I'm no audiophile but they sound great. I can't yet comment on their longevity but for the price one would hope they last a good while..
    I have knocked off 1 star as the lack of an L-shaped jack means there is more chance of cable deterioration and can stick into the crook of the elbow when on the arm.

But despite all the spin about these earphones being 'indestructible' the mic and controls stop working as soon as they come into contact with sweat. Bose replaced them 3 times before I gave up and asked for a refund... Every time insisting it was unheard of. It clearly isn't unheard of because all 4 pairs I had were poor quality and broke within a month, and the first person I found at my Tri club with the same pair has already had to exchange his 9 times this year for the same problem.

    To top it off the staff at Westfield Bose Shephards Bush were shockingly rude. I have had an epic-ly bad experience of Bose, and cannot recommend strongly enough that you stay well clear of these allegedly premium products.

  • Very expensive but not perfect!

    First off, these are extremely comfortable, I can be wearing these for up to 3 hours at a time whilst training, without any discom First off, these are extremely comfortable, I can be wearing these for up to 3 hours at a time whilst training, without any discomfort! They remain in your ear no matter what you do! they are excellent in that respect. Sound quality is very good, however you can hear outside noise, so its not going to be perfect, however I would rather hear a honking horn over perfect bass any day of the week but still they sound very good.

    The supplied armband I find to be exceptional! its comfortable to wear and makes it easy to use the phone whilst its in there and also easy to adjust if needed.

    They only problem I have had, is sweat entering the button/microphone housing. This causes SIRI to have a fit and also stops the buttons from working. Once dried out they work again, but for a £130 set of 'Sports' headphones I expect better. To be fair I also own the Monster iSports and exactly the same thing happens although they are cheaper, have better bass, but do tend to irate my ears after a couple of hours, they also leave the fin bit in my ears when removing!

    All in all these are comfortable, stay put, sound great and if you can keep the buttons dry (I wear them between a base layer and t-shirt), they are superb, the armband is excellent too!

    (Ive been using them for 5 months about 5 times per week)
