The Bose MIE2/MIE2i headsets offer a good combination of comfort and solid sonics for the money.

A different approach to earbud design that also breeds a different sound – but one that’s up there with the best.

Replaced beat to death old Apple standard iPhone headset with MIE2i ... the difference is significant and to the better. Sound is pretty good, even on airplane (but NOT noise cancelling!). Previously had to crank volume to be heard but it seems those Spock looking tips hold the earpiece in a...

I used these everywhere I go, including bed and the the shower. JK, not the shower. I have run 2 half marathons and all the training with these headphones. All along with taking phone calls, gaming to music for hundreds of miles sweating profusely and thru rain. Only wire the wire frayed at the...

How many of you have likely spent hundreds of dollars buying one cheap pair of earbuds at a time, only to have them break or blow out after a period of use? Well I know I have for years now. This just makes the point that buying quality the first time will doubtlessly save you money and...

I love the Bose MIE2i headphones. They take music listening to another level with more range in music and a native integration with iOS devices. My major gripe would be that they're not well suited for using in a noisy environment. The earbuds are not designed to fill the ear canal and as such...
