    I got these as a replacement for the previous bose headphones that I owned which lasted a good 7 years or so. These have the excellent bose quality and I really don't have anything negative to say other than sometimes when you try to skip or repeat a song, the buttons don't always listen and think you're only pressing it once to pause the song. Other than that, they are exceeding my expectations on what I expect headphones to do.

    This works and syncs with all features in iPhone. But not to Android. But still the music quality is good. The only disappointed is can't attend phone call in Android phone using the button in headphones

    Nice head phones for working out

    These head phones worked pretty well. I have some pretty intense/sweaty workouts and they held up well. The middle button for pausing, skipping, etc.doesn't seem to be big enough and is difficult to press sometimes. Overall these were some good head phones for exercising.

    These earphones are very good sound wise. I use them while I exercise and even during down time. The only complaint I have is the mic/volume buttons could be a little lower on the cord. It's too high up by my ear. Otherwise, another quality Bose purchase.

    Unreliable

    The inline music control buttons seems to be faulty after about a month of use. The button is at first responsive but over time when I would click the button to play, pause, etc., it would lose its responsiveness and it would barely click anymore. Not to mention that every once in awhile the audio will cut in and out. The music control is very faulty and this is my second pair with the same problems. I would not recommend if you need the inline music control.

    First off, super happy with how fast they were shipped to me, just two days. I've been using these daily since I got them a little over a month ago and I'm very happy with the purchase. I had been using the apple headphones that came with my iPhone which were okay, but eventually started breaking down due to normal wear and tear. I'm taking a lot better care of these, they are comfortable and don't hurt my ears. The sound quality is pretty good, of course I'm not picky when it comes to that. Only negative thing I've to say is that sometimes the play/pause button on the remote sometimes doesn't respond. It doesn't happen often so very minor issue.

    I bought these to use in the gym to connect to the AV line out on the equipment (bluetooth headphones can't connect). I am very impressed by the fit and comfort - they stay in without needing constant adjustment and are the most comfortable in ear headphones I've owned - my ears don't hurt even after an hour or more of use. Sound quality is very good. I've the QC 35 for home use, but find myself using these at home just as often. BTW, I bought the iOS version even though I use Android. I didn't expect any of the inline controls to work and that was ok since these were 1/2 off. The volume buttons don't work for me but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the pause/resume button works. Haven't tried the mic yet. They do allow quite a lot of ambient noise in - that's usually preferred for sports phones so you don't get squashed by an unheard vehicle. Wish they blocked a little more outside noise.

    These headphones sound fantastic. Once you hear these, you'll wonder why you ever put up with the tinny sound of cheaper earbuds. The ones that Apple gives you for free with your iPhone are especially horrible. These bring a surprising amount of bass, crisp highs, and an overall sonic clarity to your music that make them worth the somewhat steep price. They also come with a nice case and interchangeable ear pads so you can customize your fit for your ear size. Yes, they're a bit pricey...but if you want great sound with your portable music, you want these. Even an "average sounding" pair from JVC, SONY, etc will set you back $49 or more. I recommend you pay more and go for the high-end audio quality that Bose is famous for. In addition, Bose really stands behind their products. When one of the volume control buttons fell off, they gave me a free replacement set of earbuds no questions asked. And, even after you've owned them past the 1-year warranty period, if they break for any reason you can buy a new pair (at a Bose store, at least) at a reduced price just by turning in your broken ones. This pair I bought from Best Buy was actually a gift for my brother-in-law, but I've bought 4 sets of these or similar models over the last 6-7 years and I keep going back for more. @@@@@@@@ Don't worry--they're well made. I use them nearly every day and wear them out more than most people would. @@@@@@@
