    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.

    Static issues

    • Written by from Brockton

    Hello, I bought an iPhone 5c 2 weeks ago. I am trying my third Bluetooth now (Plantronics 55, Jawbone Edge, Bose Series 2) and I have had static issues with each. I have tried resetting to factory settings, etc to no avail. Any thoughts? Next step may be to return the phone Thanks!

    The perfect headset

    • Written by from New York

    The best out there. Great sound quality and perfect reception. Crystal clear sound.
    Don't listen to those griping about battery life, it gives you 4 hours of talk time, if you need more buy 2

    Low quality batteries

    • Written by from Roma

    I purchased at least 5 headsets and they all lasted around 6 months before the battery fades away, the last one lasted only 28 days. I wrote to Apple and to Bose…I am still waiting for an answer.

    In the meantime I purchased a Jabra that costs 1/3 of the Bose…

    Excellent Sound and best ear fit. Their Technology works as always

    • Written by from canada

    I was doubtful about this after seeing all the Neg reviews. Here is what I have to say out of my experience.

    Sound quality - the best, very close to my SEi2i which is amazing, I so wish they put out a Bluetooth stereo headset using the same ear fitment, I would buy it in a heart beat. Now for the actual communication part, it's the best clarity and I have NO PROBLEM using it with my iPhone 5S.

    I understand there is no a lot of handy gimmicks like headset battery status, or iphone music control function, announce call number, etc... However, it has the best noise block technology that works and that's essentially what you are buying! - a Bluetooth that works great for calls, people have no problem hearing me with windows open going 100km/h on the highway. It was never designed for listening to music or to be an extension of Siri - Just like you won't find formula 1 race cars with air conditioning and stereos, they are build for ONE purpose: to go fast!.

    Although I do wish they have the iphone music control because the music quality is so good, I am 100% happy with it as a bluetooth headset. It connects my iphone, my macbook without issue. And it does have Siri function by press the call button, don't even have to press and hold.

    I only have this for a couple weeks so I can't comment on how durable it will be, but I have owned lots of Bose items and they are all top notch

    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.......

    Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2

    • Written by from Lisle

    I've owned many Bluetooth headsets. On November 23,2013 I purchased the Bose series 2 . My experience has been very negative. The "noise canceling system "does not work. I have had many callers complain that they were unable to understand me because of too much background noise . I am an audiologist and ALL of my patients are hearing impaired it's disturbing that they are unable to understand me unless I am in a completely quiet room with no noise . I phoned Bose to see if there was a way to adjust the noise reduction system. The customer service rep was very helpful offered to replace the headset (shipping charges not covered). Will need to wait 10 days

    Not compatible with iPhone 5S

    • Written by from Westlake Village

    Purchased in December, long after 5S was out. Used with my 4S, worked great. Upgraded to the 5S, then found the Bose is not compatible with 5s, only with the 5. Both manufacturers should point this out clearly in their product info.

    Gave up using it with iPhone 5

    • Written by from Franklin

    Though it has outstanding sound and is great for using for phone calls, listening to music is fraught with peril.

    It constantly drops the bluetooth connection and when the connection recovers, music will not play through the blue tooth headset until you 1) turn it off, 2) turn off bluetooth on the phone, 3) turn bluetooth back on at the phone, 4) then the headset, and then 5) maybe within 10 minutes you can get music out of the headset again.

    It is strange because during the music outage, it still works great for phone calls and also works great with the Mac Book Pro and iMac without issues.

    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.

    Incomparable headset

    • Written by from Boise

    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

    • Written by from Wildwood

    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.

    Best Headset that I have tried

    • Written by from Crofton

    Here's the deal. I drive a Honda Civic which if you drive one you know is a very loud car. They have no sound insulation what so ever. I turned the air conditioning on full blast and spoke to my 70 year old parents for about 30 minutes or so. Those of you that have older parents know that the hearing is not so good when you reach that age.

    My parents reported that the the Bose was the most clear sounding headset that I have tried. The headset was also very clear sounding for me. Loud if I needed and also soft. Siri heard me well too!

    I tried the Plantronics Voyager and the Motorola Elite Sliver. The Plantronics was good. The Elite Sliver was a piece of garbage (I liked the profile and fit of the Motorola Elite Sliver the best, however, I could not talk to anyone because they could not hear me....too much background noise). The Bose headset worked the best.

    Bose products are more expensive than others, however, you get what you pay for. You can trust them to work well.

    High quality electronic componenents

    • Written by from montreal

    I bought a plantronics voyager legend and could not update the firmware, I needed to update the firmware because the sound quality in some areas was really aweful and I read in forums that it is fixed by the update. Did the firmware update and guess what I found out that I already had the latest version. Asked for a refund and changed it for Bose. I went to the same areas where I had problems to test it and it was perfect.

    It seems that the Bose has a stronger receiver than plantronics and the signal does not get distorted in those areas. Amazing Headset, I had three before it (jabra and 2 plantronics)

    Bose Series 2

    • Written by from lutz

    I had Bose series 2 since it came out and I have been paring it with my Iphone 3s ever since. It worked great until the new Iphone4s came out (as far as I can remember) when the Bose Headset keeps dropping off the connections or Iphone3s keeps dropping of the Bose headset, not sure chicken or eggs. Anyways, I was hoping it happens to many people and either Bose or Apple would fix the problem by now. However, I took out the same headset to use, same problem still exist. Anyone has any solutions?

    Problems with Pairing to My iPhone 4

    • Written by from Mansfield

    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 Bose 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.

    It's over

    • Written by from Staten island

    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.

    Works great.

    • Written by from Broadlands

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