I bought both and the Bose have brutally bad sound. I would expect that from $30 phones, not $150 ones. Buy the Klipsch, they are quite good for the price.

Klipsch S4i if you want noise isolation and use them while moving such as jogging or working out. I have both and the IE2s aren't noise isolating and don't go as deep into your ear as the most IEMs. I find myself turning the volume higher on the Bose than other headphones. I think the sound quality of these two are on par depending on which qualities you prefer. My preference for the S4i is mainly due to the fact it blocks out sound pretty well, sometimes I put them on w/o anything playing to block out some noise when it gets noisy at work or in public.

I'd love to use a pair that sounds better than the Bose -- for over-ears I've used Ultrasone, Audio-Technicas, Shure, and entry-level Sennheisers -- but that particular design (using the small-size tips) is the only one that works for my stupid ears. If anybody can point me to a good set that uses the same design, I would be very grateful.

The Bose IE2 aren't really in-ear, despite their name. They don't provide much noise isolation at all.

That said, the IE2 tend to be very bass-heavy, without much highs. They sound like $30 earbuds, not the $99 earbuds that they are.

In short, the S4 is much better, for less price.
