Bose® MIE2i mobile headset
Take your iPod/iPhone enjoyment to new heights with premium sound from Bose. The Bose MIE2i mobile headset is designed specifically for use with your favorite Apple products. An inline integrated remote lets you take calls on your iPhone with one-touch ease. And a three-button remote located on the reverse side of the mic provides control of your iPod, iPhone and other select Apple devices. Adjust volume, play/pause tracks, skip tracks forward/backward, fast forward/rewind, and change playlists--all while enjoying your music.
This redesigned headset sets a new standard for audio reproduction that conventional mobile headsets can't match. It features an enhanced acoustic design, in concert with a proprietary Bose TriPort acoustic headphone structure. Music sounds smoother and more natural, with impressive low note performance. Your calls will sound clearer, too, with the added benefit of hearing them in "stereo" instead of through a single earpiece.
One-Touch Switching, Hands-Free Talking
When your phone rings, just push the answer/end button to pause your music and take the call. The inline microphone supports mobile communications, enabling access to certain voice applications, such as VoiceOver or Voice Control, where available. The mic is also omnidirectional so it picks up your voice clearly--no need to hold it to your lips. Ending the call is done with a touch, and your music continues from where you left off.
Designed to Stay Put While You're On The Run
Proprietary StayHear silicone tips offer greater in-ear stability during walking, exercise and other active sports. Soft and flexible, the tips nestle inside the bowl of the ear while naturally conforming to the ear's upper ridge. And they come in three sizes to fit listeners comfortably for hours on end.
StayHear tips also rest more securely on the headset itself. This provides more reliable performance when taking calls and listening to music on the go.
Enhanced TriPort Acoustic Design
The Bose MIE2i headphones incorporates a new port to help music sound smoother and more natural. Available only from Bose, the TriPort acoustic headphone structure produces tonally balanced audio with deep low notes from small, in-ear headphones.
MIE2i headphones boast a sturdy design, thanks to advanced materials, construction and manufacturing techniques--all adding up to more lasting quality for you. Each pair undergoes rigorous testing to meet Bose standards for performance and durability. The reliable cable construction enhances flexibility and durability to better withstand the rigors of everyday use.
Designed Exclusively for Your Apple Product
The MIE2i headset is compatible with iPhone (3GS and later), iPod touch (2nd generation and later), 2009 iPod classic (120GB and 160GB), iPod nano (4th generation and later) and iPod shuffle (3rd generation and later). The headset is also compatible with iPad, MacBook (unibody) and MacBook Pro (excluding MacBook Air).

The Bose 'phones don't get quite so far into the bass as the Klipsch, but nothing I've ever tried beats them for clarity of overall sound. Nothing else even comes close. I find myself hearing lyrics clearly for the first time; the overall crispness and balance is absolutely amazing. I don't miss the pounding bass at all.
And I've decided, after wearing these for a couple of days, that noise isolation is over-rated. Sure, I can hear what's going on around me, but the same holds true when I hear music live, or listen over a speaker system. With the clarity of sound that Bose delivers, my attention is focussed on the music, even in a coffee shop where there are people talking at neighboring tables. I've even found that I can listen comfortably at significantly lower volumes and still distinguish the words and hear every riff and arpeggio distinctly.
And speaking of comfort. Wow! When I first put these on, I was sure that they were going to fall out, because I wasn't able to jam them into my ear canal. Didn't happen. These ear pieces sit most lightly, and they never budge! (I did find that the large tips fit my ears better and feel more secure than the medium tips that are on the ear pieces coming out of the box.) I can wear these for hours, and I feel no discomfort whatever.Read more ›
While still very new, it seems as though the Bose will withstand the rigors of the gym, skiing and cycling (read lots of sweating and jouncing) and if they fail the warranty is a good bit better than average (1 year in store no questions, $50 to replace with new pair after that). A final note, these are earbuds, which is exactly what I wanted as they still allow me to hear what is going on around me. In the past, I have been willing to sacrifice the poorer audio quality associated with earbuds for the added safety of being able to hear what is going on in my surroundings. No more -- the audio quality on these buds have blown me away; the sound is rich with plenty of good bass. I'm thinking that these are keepers...
UPDATE: The Bose buds have not held up well under strenuous gym workouts (read sweat). After a couple of months the in-line controls would cease to work and caused my iPod to randomly pause, stop and skip tracks. The first time, I thought perhaps I had a bad unit and the second time I figured it must be that that are not sweat-resistant in the long term.Read more ›
Klipsch, Sennheiser, Shure, and a host of others have competitive products in the market. I am not a "nose in the air" audiophile, I am just a lover of music. My Current line up of Audio gear I have is the Sennheiser 555 for recording music, and Bowers & Wilkins P5 for listening to music around the house. My Audio gear is powered by my MacBook Pro, iPad 2, iPhone 3GS, and iPod Classic. I have no interest in dealing with amplifiers at this stage.
I tried and really enjoyed the Klipsch Image S4i. I specifically bring these up, because they are probably the closest competitor to the Bose IE2. The Klipsch were very accurate, the way it presented the music, sounded like they were much more expensive. My problem with the Klipsch's were that, no matter how hard they tried to present the sound in its natural way, the treble hissed, and gave me headaches. It was not noticeable in every song, but it sounded like I was in a 5th grade choir class learning about the importance of the "s" sound. The technology got in the way of an otherwise great earbud. I couldn't take it. Soon after I tried the Sennheiser IE7, but because i couldn't create a good seal, they ended up sounding terrible.
Enter the Bose IE2's.
I am far from a Bose faithful, I think their product lineup range from incredible to trash. Bose's most concerning quality is their custom EQ. In which they EQ their headphones and speakers to sound a specific way.Read more ›
