Bose MIE2 Mobile Headset with StayHear Tips & In-Line Microphone
I bought two of these headphones, the sound is great and the comfort was good, but both pairs came apart right at the earpiece and shorted out. There needs to be some reinforcement around the ear pieces.
I saw the earlier reviews and just had to say something. There is a version for IPHONES it is the "MIE2i".
I know because I bought 2 of them for gifts. Because I have a Blackberry, I use the "MIE2'.
Because I KNOW there can be differences with connections ie..IPHONE vs BLACKBERRIES OR ANDROID..I called BOSE to be sure I was ordering the appropriate items. Before they picked up the phone the answer was right in front of me on the product page. Sometimes it pays to do our due diligence as customers, when buying products. NO ONE is perfect...
As far as quality goes..well BOSE to me is the best!! I have the Cinemate (5 years not a prob) The GSX ( 6 years not one problem) Lifestyle (4 years... you get my point...)
I have thoroughly enjoyed my MIE2 headset for 2 1/2 years now, again... no problems!
For those that had a problem with the mobile headset (other than incompatibility) did you reach out to QVC or BOSE? They both have great customer support....
Not worth the price
I had a pair of "Beats" earphones before and they were great but I always wanted to get a Bose because I know they have great products.
I love the way earphones stay in my ears but the cord keeps coming one and sometimes the music plays on one side of the ear. I made sure to get the earphones that work with Android phones... but it doesn't seem to work properly.
I wish they had a "last" and "next" button to skip songs.
Unfortunately I will need to return it and will hope that the new "Noise cancelling" in-ear phones will be better.
I am very disappointed. When I ordered this item, the description made it seem it was compatible with all smartphones. The product detail does not specify that the headset only work with Android, Windows, and Blackberry. I only found out when I went to wrap the gift and I looked at the box closely. It is now the day before Christmas Eve and I have to find another gift. I will be returning them. Product description should be more clear!
im so happy with this headset. bose is worth the price. have the wave radio, and will be purchasing the quiet canceling headset next.
Cannot use on I phone
I just received this last night and was so excited to have in time to mail my son for Christmas. I noticed on the box it did not say compatible with Iphone. I went to the description and just like the other reviewer below, it is not clear. It just says Mobile. I am extremely disappointed as I called to place this order and even asked the rep if it would work with Iphone. Bose is a good product but this should be advertised more clearly that it only works with certain phones.
ITEM DISCRIPTION NOT TOTALLY CLEAR.
I ordered this product only to find that its NOT COMPATIBLE with my I-PHONE . I went back on your website (QVC) to re-read the discription, thinking I may have overlooked this piece information only to find that this IMPORTANT piece of information is not listed. I was under the impression that these headphones was universally compatible. Not until I opened the box to make sure the item was not damaged and the FIRST THING THE BOX SAYS IS,These headphones are ONLY COMPATIBLE with Android,and BLACKBERRY SMARTPHONES. They were a Christmas gift and here it is Dec.17th and I have to return them. For future reference, PLEASE LIST THIS IMPORTANT INFO ON YOUR DISCRIPTION OF ITEM PAGE PLEASE. For this reason is why I rated this product so low. Cant rate what I Cant use!!
After ordering these earbuds, i thought they where not a good buy and tried to cancel the order. Iam so glad they shipped, my daughter LOVES them.
Purchased one for myself and the quality and sound was exactly what I expected from Bose. Once my son tried them, he needed to order a one. Nothing comes even close to the sound. The price is well worth it!
This will be the second headset I have purchased and I only came back because the sound quality is superb and for me these are the first in-ear style earphones that stay in my ears!! The only downside is that you cannot control the volume of a call from the switch on the line, otherwise these are the best of this style. Oh and the "expensive snack" title refers to why I had to buy another set...my lovely little kitty loved them too; as a teething ring!
Don't waste your money on anything else!
I bought these after my wife bought me an Over the Ear BOSE headphones and I loved them. I use these outside my home, in the field and in noisy environment.
First: these thing are amazing. The sound quality is unmatched. Covers a wide range of sound without any distortion.
Second: they never fall out of your ears. I work in the field a lot, hot and humid conditions. My other headsets I had to constantly push back into my ears. These guys stay in there very well and I never have to correct them.
Third: Sometimes, I have these in my ears the entire day and they do become a bit uncomfortable after about 6-7 hours of being in my ears, but nowhere near as painful as my other brands. I had a number of SONY and Samsung ear buds that i would take out precisely because they were hurting me ears. I'm very glad that I don't go through the same experience with this BOSE headset.
Very happy. Spend the money on this and stop buying junk.
After buying several headsets, I finally decided to try the Bose MIE2 Mobile. What a difference! They stay securely in your ears. The sound is crisp and clear. According to the person(s) I've called, the microphone is also crisp and clear. I was a little hesitant because of the price tag but after weighing the fact that I have spent $15 to $25 on other headsets, it is actually quite a bargain. Don't wait to try these out for yourself, especially with QVC's easy return policy.
