Music

Music:
"I do not find the bass to be excessive (but I don't listen to boomp-chinka music)."
_
"There is no volume control on the headset itself, but that is neither unusual nor a problem when using a mobile phone to listen to music."

Noise

Noise:
"For anyone who has ever enjoyed the Shure buds that sit in the ear and block out much of the ambient noise, these will NEVER satisfy."
_
"The problem with this is that you're introducing twice as much noise to your ears and I am suspicious that while the ears don't hear the noise, they may be injured by it."
_
"You could definitely find earbuds from other brands for half the price with similar (or better) sound quality and less problems with ambient noise."
_
"If you need to block out loud noise then these aren't the best, although you won't get hit by a vehicle that you didn't hear coming."
_
"They fit more securely (blocking out more noise and you can run in them), they sound great, they are more durable (I have had mine for over a year and they only show minimal wear on the cables and ear pieces, and it is over all a cheaper solution (at this time coming in at $75 here on Amazon).Hope this helps! "
_
"Microphone does a good job with noise cancellation."
_
"Since my first experience with these was on an airplane they were tested under pretty noisy circumstances."
_
"They do cancel the noise of a jet engine, but the way they do that is by introducing equal noise out of phase with the original noise and the two noises, well, cancel."

Quality

Quality:
"Inconvenient ears mount, but more important is mediocre sound quality."
_
"Got this as a gift to my friend - apparrently the voice quality is not clear - this after spending 120 bucks!"
_
"I was able to order a pack of 10 for $6.Over the long term I am a bit disappointed with the quality of the cords, as mine have started to yellow, become slightly brittle and crack."
_
"You could definitely find earbuds from other brands for half the price with similar (or better) sound quality and less problems with ambient noise."
_
"In sum: very good sound (excellent for the price), appear to have good build quality, not the most comfortable (but not painful either)."
_
"They cost about the same, so it's hard to recommend one over the other, since sound quality often just comes down to personal tastes and ears."
_
"If you care more about fit, durability and sound quality, buy something else."
_
"When my last BOSE earbuds were destroyed by my dog, I tried other earbuds and the sound quality was so much less and the comfort was non-existent after being spoiled with BOSE."
_
"Great sound, great quality, really comfortable."
_
"They MUCH more durable with the same sound quality and they are actually surprisingly cheaper...NEVER AGAIN, BOSE!"
_
"Voice quality is good and the one-button control works well for calls & play pause music."

Size

Size:
"I primarily use my headphones when working out or on my bike so my best guess is that this problem is caused by any sort of moisture entering the small (and cheaply made) plastic button that controls the music."
_
"I shoved a smaller size into my ear - and pushed super hard to lodge it in there."
_
"For me, at least, they aren't the most comfortable - I experimented with each size molding before using the small - but I can use them for an hour or two without any great discomfort."
_
"It looks nice, and the best issue for me is that I have small earlobes then I never find an ear headset that fit me and, this does."
_
"If you are looking for good sound, better service than most companies for a small product, a head phone that stays in your ear, I would recommend these to almost anyone, just know if you use them hard, 2-3 years is all you will get before you have to replace them."
_
"They come with a wonderful pleather zipper case that is ginormous, and a small ziplock baggy containing an extra clip and 3 sizes of tips (S, M and L) so you can find the perfect size for your ear (like pretty much every in-ear buds out there, even the $10 ones)."

Sound

Sound:
"Inconvenient ears mount, but more important is mediocre sound quality."
_
"I bought these from my carrier wanting a better set for my droid, after all, there Bose, boy was I dissapointed, they didn't sound any better than my old pair, and to get hear the rich sound I had to hold them in deeper, the included access."
_
"The V-modas sound amazing as well - but when I misplaced them, I bought this Bose headset."
_
"You could definitely find earbuds from other brands for half the price with similar (or better) sound quality and less problems with ambient noise."
_
"Unfortunately, the earbuds that come with the iPhone have good (but not great) sound, but don't hold up well - they tend to come apart after a few months of use."
_
"The HF2 offers great sound, but is a little uncomfortable with the insertion in the ear."
_
"Sounds fantastic, fits so well, sometimes I forget they are on, works perfect with Iphone."
_
"Yes, they still sound great."
_
"They are very confortable and most importantly the sound is great! "
_
"comparing both, the bose sound is incredible whether you want thumping base or crystal clear sound for orchestra, guitar and voice...where as the ibeats just thump and are muffled for anything but base."
_
"the phone feature is fantastic and everyone i talk to using them says i sound clear."

Volume

Volume:
"Unfortunately, I did not learn these earphones did not have a, volume, capability."
_
"There is no volume control on the headset itself, but that is neither unusual nor a problem when using a mobile phone to listen to music."
_
"If you want maximum noise cancellation, ear piercing volume, and maximum battery life these wouldn't be your best choice."
_
"One potentially significant practical drawback is that to get really good volume you often have to put the volume up significantly higher on your iPod which makes the battery run down faster."
_
"The only other drawback is that they do not produce as much volume as most other in the ear phones."
_
"Perhaps buttons for Forward and Rewind and Volume control would make this the most perfect headphones ever made."
_
"For the most part, I use these for my commute and ambient sounds (movements of the subway, loud talkers, passing cars, wind) easily can overpower these unless turned up to full volume."
_
"The volume is adequate."
_
"That is not a problem, just an observation; so if you are used to a certain volume setting with other headsets, you may have to increase it for this headset."
_
"One potentially significant practical drawback is that to get really good volume you often have to put the volume up significantly higher on your iPod which makes the battery run down faster."

iPhone

iPhone:
"Not so good with iPhone 3G - seems ok with other phones though... but not wat we expected out of a BOSE product..."
_
"Unfortunately, the earbuds that come with the iPhone have good (but not great) sound, but don't hold up well - they tend to come apart after a few months of use."
_
"The in ear headphones that came with my iPhone were very painful after 30 minutes or so."
_
"For headset users: microphone integrity is acceptable, but iPhone operation is completely frustrating and erratic using the inline button."
_
"I have been looking for headphones to replace the mediocre, at best, that Apple suppled with the iPhone."
_
"Sounds fantastic, fits so well, sometimes I forget they are on, works perfect with Iphone."
_
"As my iPhone was pretty old, I thought it must be the player."
_
"All in all I wouldn't really pay $130.00 for this headset even though it works great with the iPhone 4."
_
"Get the V-Moda Vibe Duo's I own here: V-MODA Vibe Duo Earbuds Headset (iPhone Compatible) - Black"
_
"Lanyard - pretty usefulCase - easily fits the iPhone, but defies the purpose as there is no remote feature on the headphones."
