Ratings & Reviews
I purchased this unit over a week ago to use with my new iPhone 4S.
After researching reviews by other users, I found that the Bose 2 fits many of my requirements which are geared towards business users such as superior sound quality, ease of use, good battery life and ability to function well with features of my phone (Siri).
The unit has provided great sound quality for both myself and other parties that I am talking with even in mildly windy conditions that caused noise problems with other headsets (Moto, Plantronic etc.).
Bose has done an excellent job of designing the controls which as simple a power switch, volume control and answer button. There is no need to press and hold a button for several seconds to initiate various controls which makes other units overly difficult to use without keeping a manual handy.
Battery life so far has been excellent, I am able to use the headset for most of the business day without the need to recharge. But I am sure like most other units, as it ages the battery will gradually weaken and from my experience small headsets such as this are good for about 9 months to a year of constant use.
The headset works flawlessly with Siri, just press the answer button and then speak when you hear the beep .... Siri responds and recognizes my requests allowing me to make virtually hands free calls while driving.
Ah and before I forget, the silicon earpieces fit nicely and do not require that you jam the unit into your ear. Simple choose the cover that fits you well then align it so that when placed into your outer ear that it will stay in place.
The unit is light and comfortable and I have found that I have do not notice it after wearing it for awhile.
The unit appears to be able to stay in place well, but I wouldn't try running while wearing it.
Well the only gripes I could have would be the short USB charging cable and the small travel case which the wall charger does not fit into (if you try to zip it shut)..
Beyond that I have found that this headset is well worth the $150 I paid for it and will certainly make Bose my first consideration when I have to replace this unit in a year. …

This is what I wanted out of a Bluetooth headset. The button acts exactly like the mic button for Siri, so you can carry a Siri co nversation without touching your phone.
Very comfortable. I leave it in my ear for hours. It does not fall out when you're chewing (like Jawbone).
Battery life is acceptable; lasts a day.
I love the physical on switch that turns it on and off easily. However, it can turn on easily in your pocket. A trade off. I will also be curious to see if it retains its firmness (build quality issue) over the years or if the switch will get all loosey goosey.
Sound quality incoming is better than all the ones I tried. My friend reported a marginal difference outgoing between this and the Plantronics.
Others tried: Old Jawbone Prime, Plantronics Voyager Pro HD, SoundId Six …

Problems with Pairing to My iPhone 4
Big fan of iPhones (have a 5 for personal use and a 4 for work) and a huge Bose fan with multiple products. Currently have the Bo se Gen 2 and it worked fine on my iPhone 5 and worked great on my previous BlackBerry. When my BlackBerry failed my company replaced it with the iPhone 4. The Bose headset does not work properly with the 4 for some odd reason. The complaint from others is that I "cut in and out" and they cannot hear me. The exact same thing happened to another person I work with when he transitioned from a BB to the iPhone 4. Contacted Bose support who suggested I update the Firmware but as it turns out I already have the latest version. They also suggested removing the BlueTooth from the iPhone and pairing it again. Tried that as well but the problem still exists. They also suggested powering off the phone which in this case doesn't apply as I fly almost every week and the phone is off a lot. After all this and discussions with two support techs I was told they have no other suggestions. Obviously not the answer I was looking for. Looks like I will be forced to go with a different BlueTooth. …

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. …

I have had this Bose Bluetooth for about a year, and it works great. I recently ran it over with my vehicle when accidentally dro pped 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. …

Yes. The Bose Bluetooth ear piece Series 2 will work with all features of iPhone 4S and it does soun d great. I've had mine now for 2 years. HOWEVER I've had consistent connection problems: the Bose will drop the connection to my iPhone 4S many times throughout any given day. It almost always takes several tries to get the Bose to be recognized by iPhone and even after it says it's connected the A2DP will not always work — I then have turn it off and try again or restart iPhone to get A2DP audio. Lastly the connection to iPhone is frequently knocked out by my airport extreme network as well as my MacPro 8-Core built-in bluetooth (I use bluetooth mouse & keyboard) or even an outside source (like a passing taxi sending a dispatch signal). If I turn wi-fi off on iPhone, using only cellular then the problem is lessoned. This is all extremely frustrating, time consuming and continues to get worse. This is only offset by the fact that when it does work — it sounds great, really great plus the convenience & freedom from earphones with cords is priceless - you'll never want to use regular earphones again.
P. S. these same problems are NOT experienced when using the Bose with iPad — the Bose performs flawlessly including A2DP audio with no trouble connecting to iPad and no spontaneous disconnects — which makes me think it's the iPhone 4S and not the Bose.
My recommendation: make sure you can return if not satisfied. Or, also take a look at the BlueAnt Q2, an excellent product also with A2DP. I owned an earlier model BlueAnt without A2DP…the only feature it was missing - its still performing perfectly and even the older BlueAnt has features the Bose Series 2 is still missing. …

Yes all the way back to the original iPad – works just great.

Works great when you talk on the phone, but I have found that it does not play well with Siri.
W hen I ask Siri to call someone while i am on the headset, she NEVER gets the name right. When I turn off the headset and make the same request via the phone mic, Siri is 99% accurate.
I am assuming that's because the headset is not accurately rendering what I am asking.
It really is too bad because I find myself turning off the headset, asking Siri to place a call and once she is placing the call, I turn the headset back on. …

If I have the headset on, will email/text notification sounds still play on the phone, or just the headset?

The Bose Bluetooth isolates all sound to your earpiece. If I want to also "hear" an alert from my iP hone device, I set it to Vibrate. With Vibrate On I can hear and/or feel the soft vibration alert if I'm not wearing my earpiece. The Bose tech is wrong, as far as I know, there is no other Apple iOS specific setting to by-pass the earpiece when Bluetooth is On and the Bose headset is selected. Bose does not supply any software or App for the earpiece.
If someone knows differently I'd like to know too. …
