Bose IE2 Headphones

When it comes to audio, Bose are the leaders in their field and the Bose IE2 headphones are the perfect replacement earphones for owners of iPods, iPhones or other portable MP3 players. Once again boasting superior audio, these headphones are an interesting piece of technology that are far superior than a variety of headphones that we have tested, both in leisure and professionally.

Bose IE2 Product Features and Specifications

Excellent audio quality
Advanced design

The first thing that you will notice about the Bose IE2 is the distinct design that contains a white/black cable as opposed to just one colour like Apple white or something completely different like blue. Its appearance isn't the most pleasing to the eyes as it looks a little too adhoc but in actual fact, the cabling is considerably thicker than its competitors, hence the increase sound quality. Another interesting element of the Bose IE2 are the silicon curved earplugs that basically nestle in the curvature of your ears.

The curved silicon ear plugs are actually a little challenging at the start to fit into your ears but after you've done it a few times, you should have no difficulties at all. As opposed to standard earplugs that go directly in your ear, these do not go directly in but rather the silicon curvature directs the sound into your ear canals.  It should be noted that this design is quite comfortable, albeit a little clunky at the start when putting them into your ears. If the standard silicon tip does not fit, there are two other sizes available that include small, medium and large.

The highlight of the Bose IE2 is definitely the audio quality that provided crisp clear audio and whether I was listening to MP3 music, audio books or even playing games on my iPhone or iPad, the quality produced was rather impressive.

Compared to my other headphones, there was no hiss whatsoever and the item produced some exceptional sounds on all levels with some decent bass. Another factor was that I could turn the volume down on my smart devices when using the Bose IE2, unlike my other earphones which needed them to be loud. This means that these earphones produce louder sounds so if need be, you can really get a significant notice of loudness.

One issue with the Bose IE2 was the clip on the headphones that did seem to get in the way, especially if you were training. Fortunately the clip can be removed if necessary. I also like how the cable length is a little longer than standard earphones that ensures the headphones will not pop out while using them in the gym or running.

Conclusion

If you're looking for some of the best possible earphone sound available, than I would suggest you investigate the Bose IE2 which are not only comfortable but produce some extremely crisp and sharp audio on all levels. It did take some time getting use to these earphones but after a few uses, they became like second nature. Great quality and a must have to enhance your portable smart devices!
