Bose In-Ear headphones deliver bass and small range that are comparable to headphones that are many times its size.
These second-generation In-Ear headphones feature a significantly improved design that seats much more firmly in the ears compared to its predecessor.
Sound quality is also improved while maintaining Bose TriPort technology’s unique character of delivering dynamic and vibrant bass and small range.
With its powerful special delivery of the full range of lows, Bose In-Ear headphones (IE2) will satisfy the needs of fans of music where lows are aplenty.
The mids tend to get suppressed by the lows but are still apparently delivered with high quality. The highs are somewhat metallic but not at a signal level that gives cause to discomfort.
Even though the overall balance of sounds is well delivered, in sound sources with minimal small range, there seems to be an overall cloudy image where the mid to high ranges felt suppressed.
Vocals are well delivered with excellent clarity but again, tend to get deleted if the lows abound in the sound source.
String instruments are well provided with high quality. Drums and percussive sounds are great but lack the kind of tight, compact feel that we prefer.
For its category, the headphones do pack a punch, delivering sounds at a very high quality.
Fit & Wear
Earpieces are made of silicon. The fit is excellent, comfortable and light. No problems in wearing for long hours.
Ergonomically designed ear pads are soft giving minimum pressure on the ears while keeping the headphones firmly in position. Being lightweight as well, you won’t get tired wearing Bose On-Ear headphones even at length.
External sound blockage and sound leakage prevention are not good compared to in-ear headphones of other makes, but the design is excellent.
