    Bose Headset Series 2 awesome BUT !!!!

    • Written by from Alton

    I had a Bose Bluetooth 1 and just got my Bose Bluetooth 2. The 2 is motte expensive then the . That is what i expected from Bose. I have no problem with the 2 it is all it is supposed to be and more but when I pay a premium price for something I expect it to be more then the original not only in quality and performance but also in the product itself. The 2 comes with a far shorter charging cable then the 1. I run my charging cable from the power strip on the floor to the top of my desk where I secure the cord. I assume Bose shorten the cable in order to save money and upped the price of the 2 to increases profits. That is why I am only giving the a rating of 4 stars instead of a 5star rating.

    Best I Have had

    • Written by from Salford

    Ok bought my 1st BOSE Series 2 Bluetooth headset in November 2013, to work with my Iphone 4S
    untill today it stopped holding charge, now i do use it alot and charge it as often as i can at home or in my car,
    Went to Apple today and got it replaced, free of charge,
    Its priced quite reasonably for what it is i believe as with BOSE you do get what you pay for,
    Everything i own is BOSE.
    I used to use Apples (Rubbish) in ear, earphones but it became a pain in the backside for quality and them not hearing me.
    The BOSE headset runs Siri perfectly, after training with Siri so it knows your voice and understands your accent, I can ask siri to phone people, send texts, while im out in the wind or in my car, or the local starbucks. it picks out little bits of other peoples voices but still takes my order.
    A Great headset, I would recommend if you have £129 spare.......

    Great device, fit could be better

    • Written by from QUINCY

    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.

    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.

    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 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
