  • Enhanced Audio Performance
  • Black & White Cable
  • Standard 3.5mm Plug
  • Accessories Included

The Bose IE2 In-Ear Audio Headphones pick up where the original Bose in-ear models left off to offer an even more pleasurable listening experience. The headphones use a proprietary TriPort acoustic structure to provide greater low-frequency output than most conventional earbuds. An enhanced acoustic design incorporates a new port for smoother, more natural audio.

The unique in-ear design and 3 sizes of StayHear interchangeable silicone eartips provide a stable, secure, and comfortable fit. The StayHear tips have a unique design that fits inside the bowl of the ear and naturally conforms to the ear's upper ridge. The in-ear design also provides isolation from environmental noise, allowing you to focus on your music. The unique black and white cable has enhanced flexibility and durability to withstand the rigors of daily use.

Intended for use with portable audio devices such as MP3 and CD players, the IE2 headphones have an angled 3.5mm plug that provides wide compatibility with a variety of products including Apple devices, MP3 players, computers, tablets, and more. A clothing clip and leather carrying case are included to prevent tangles and provide convenient storage.

    Best earbuds I've ever used! When I first got them I actually thought they had to much bass, which is pretty amazing for earbuds. But after I let dad listen to them he said that he though it sounded about right. I finally realized that my normal Ipod earbuds just had a ton of treble! I used them on the bus today and they were wonderful. I only had to turn my Ipod up to half the normal level because of the noise canceling (they do not suction to your ears either.)They fit extremely well in my ears also.
    Overall awesome earbuds!

    I use this product both on my way to work, and also when I am listening to music in my house. In a quiet room these headphones work phenomenally with great sound. However once you use them outdoors or in a place with noise, the ambient noise overpowers the sound of the headphones causing you to keep raising the volume just to hear your music. The design takes about a day to get used to but once you do they are the most comfortable in-ear headphones i have ever tried.

          It was a pesent for my dad (so I didn't personally use them). However he stated how comfortable these headphones felt in the ear (and he tends to have issues with them) and the sound quality (and rather see my dad with these than a pair of beats which I doubt he would buy/wear anyway...)After a few hours of use it seems that they start to be a bit annoying, however that would probably happen with any headphone after a prolonged session. I think he was pleased with the present, so I would recommend these to anyone else.

              I replaced a prior set of Bose Ear Buds that finally gave up the ghost. The earpiece design is a major improvement on the new ones. They stay comfortably in the ear without movement. Great sound. They are a little pricey however.

              Comments about Bose IE2 In-Ear Audio Headphones:

              The IE2 audio headphones are a good investment. They kind of hover over the ears instead of plugging inside the ears as usual in ear headphones will do. This keeps the ear from getting sore during extended times of use. The earphones provide clear, full sound. The hover over the ear technology is also not the best when taking into account you also hear background noise coming from around you. If you are looking for noise reduction, other products provide this for you, but for good sound and a product that keeps your ears from getting sore, this is your product. Well worth the money, will recommend to my friends.

              Comments about Bose IE2 In-Ear Audio Headphones:

              Got this with the my B&H reward card. This is my second set as I lost my first ones a few months ago. So let me start by saying that so many people complain that these earphones do not isolate background noise, or cancel noise. These are not meant to be that way. With that said these work great. I need to hear my environment...my kids when I am out and about, and also when I am biking. They stay in the ear and are very comfortable. the design (awkward) to me seems to be like open can head phones they sit right on the outside of the ear instead of inside the ear. All the others that sit inside the ear hurt after a while and some easily come out. The sound is clear, bass is clean, the sound stage is good not super great but well rounded. If you are looking for a good sounding, comfortable, and a earphone that lets you be aware of your environment these will be great.

                While some of the newer earbuds are pretty good, Bose is still untouchable for quality sound. My last pair were an older model that developed a dead earpiece. I tried some other models and wasn't pleased with the sound quality. Finally, I broke-down and ordered these. I'm please that I did.

                    Great sound and great fit. I love the way they sty in even when exercising and yet they are totally comfortable! Better than average sound, both highs and lows too.

                          This pair is a great tool for capturing your music with some isolation. Clarity and bass are crisp

                          Really nice sound and very comfortable. However, if you want to use them in the NYC subway system they are not a great choice because of ambient noise. However in quieter areas they are amazing.
