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 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. …

The button acts exactly like the mic button for Siri, so you can carry a Siri conversation 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 …

Great device, fit could be better
I have owned several bluetooth devices, and the Bose Series 2 is among the best that I have tried. Sound quality and noise cancel I have owned several bluetooth devices, and the Bose Series 2 is among the best that I have tried. Sound quality and noise canceling are top notch, but the fit leaves something to be desired. I am fairly active, and the Bose kept falling out. I did find a solution, though. I bought a custom molded earpiece from Custom-Ears.com and now my Bose Series 2 bluetooth stays comfortably in my ear all day. Sound got better as well, as the earpiece blocks ambient sound & channels sound into my ear. Easily the best combo I've used to date. …

Like many reviewers I have tried several brands, including Plantronics. Most of the time Siri could not understand what I said. Like many reviewers I have tried several brands, including Plantronics. Most of the time Siri could not understand what I said. Today I went on a walk in the wind. Every Siri command was understood the first time and when making a call I was heard with ease. One person I called referred to the sound of people around me but not the wind. I have finally found the right headset.
BTW: I am not an employee or affiliated in any way with Apple or Bose. …

Bose Bluetooth headset
in one word, Awesome!! I have purchased a number of bluetooth headsets from Plantronics to Jawbone all "High End", Jawbone horribl in one word, Awesome!! I have purchased a number of bluetooth headsets from Plantronics to Jawbone all "High End", Jawbone horrible, Plantronics pretty good, Bose the best. None of the other brands compare to the Bose, easy to pair, easy to use. I'm on the phone in noisy envionments daily. From Airports to restaurants and everywhere in between, everyone I talk to can hear me loud and clear and I can talk in a normal tone. The biggest test; Siri, she can hear my request clearly and gets them right the first time. She cannot understand me with the other head sets. My advice, pay the extra money and buy Bose. …

Yes. The Bose Bluetooth ear piece Series 2 will work with all features of iPhone 4S and it does soun Yes. The Bose Bluetooth ear piece Series 2 will work with all features of iPhone 4S and it does sound 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. …
