    These are good for the price but I don't really like the inner ear plastic piece.

    They have great sound as I would expect with Bose - however I did have to return a pair 1 week after I got them as the headphone jack rubber casing was cracking and causing me to lose sound.

    This is my 3rd headphones from bose and I got it for $50 last black friday...the only con from my previous units were the wire that only lasted for a year. The in-ear plastic thing is kinda soft this time and it's not comfy.

    The earphones are comfortable in my ear and the sound quality is great. The plastic on one of the earpieces has joint marks in the plastic which is not expected at this price point.

    Bose makes some great products. These were great as wired headphones. I didn't care too much for the little plastic cushion, as it was uncomfortable.

    The earbuds work well for how much I paid for them. The wires are too short for my taste and the plastic inserts are a little awkward to put in and out. I would probably not give 4 stars, maybe 3.5.

    Cosmetics of the headphones not holding up

    Posted

    The clip that holds the headphone to the short broke within a few months of my purchase and now the rubber around the outside of the ear pieces is coming loss the cover of the wire to the ear pieces on both sides now slides on the wire. The only time I wear the Bose headphone is in the office and for the money there are just not holding up as I thought they should or would. They do the job that I bought them for just thought that the housing of the Bose headphone would have held up longer since I am not working out in them.

    The only reason they're at four and not five stars is because sometimes the rubber part comes off in my pocket or bag and I have to dig for them. Otherwise they're amazing. They stay in while exercising and I can wear them for hours at a time.

    I have owned many Bose wired headphones over the years; this item is not like those. An unfortunate accident destroyed my pair. This replacement is far lower quality plastic and feel as such; sound is slightly less clean too. Might return if ebay/cl has an older unopened pair.

    Doesn't drown out all surrounding sounds so great for outdoors activity in busy urban area. Comfortable enough to have on for a few hours. My third pair. Unfortunately the wires and plastic aren't made like they are used to, but still highly recommend them.

    Great set of sport headphones. Only reason it's not 5 stars overall is cause the rubber fittings don't fit every individual. They Give various sizes but none fit as snug as I'd like. Sound is pretty good also.

    These are the only headphones that don't give me a headache. The sports version in particular is my favorite because they are more durable. I used to own the regular type but the rubber on the wires would alway breakdown within a year. That doesn't seem to happen with the sport version

    Ive always liked this style of bose. Always great sound and if im out running I can still hear ambient noise around me. I would give it 5 stars but the rubber around the wire dosent seem to last as long as it used to . This is my third pair in 2 years. The headphones continue to work but the rubber insulator around wire disintegrates.

    I've tried literally dozens of different headphones from different brands. I keep going back to these particular ones because they fit my ear snugly without being bothersome. I've a previous pair which has lost all of the plastic coating from the wires. Those still feel better than some of the other ones I've tried. These are always my go to!

    This headphones are the absolute best for small ears. The hard plastic iPhone headphones always hurt during my workouts. These are perfect; comfortable, don't fall out and great sound quality. I only had to buy new ones because my Mom took my old pair. I had those for several years and never heard a decrease in sound quality.

    I love the sound. Can't go wrong with Bose. At a clearance price I got a great deal. I would give 5 stars but the earpiece is not very comfortable and tends to slide out no matter which size of the rubber sizes you use. I thought they were going to stay inside your ear. So if you are not using them to run or do cardio on the treadmill these are perfect.

    very good earphones

    This is a very nice earphone, the sound is clear with good bass. The cord is a rubberized plastic so it is soft and does not transfer noise to your ears. Bose does make some model with a hard plastic cord that are terrible. Make sure you feel the cord before buying. I had to open it in the store to feel it. The models were behind a glass display.
