Bose FreeStyle In-Ear Headphones - Ice Blue

Nice colour, a big change from black and grey colours.. I am using it everyday. Sound is very good. Wires seems to be better than the older black models. Comfortable to use for long hours.

great headphones

these are fantastic headphones! they deliver high quality sound and fit very comfortably even with active movement. when I go on runs, they do not fall out of my ear. THESE ARE NOT NOISE CANCELLING/ISOLATING HEADPHONES!! so do not expect them to perform like they are. you will hear background noise. overall, super happy with these for generic headphones and I'll definitely repurchase the closest model to them when I need a replacement.

Good value when on sale

Ergonomics (7/10): These come with a remote which some find helpful for hands free calling and switching music without going into your phone, the trade off though is they do feel heavy which you notice when working out and are hard to use when doing extreme cardio workouts. Most companies advertise "sweat proof" ear buds that won't slip out when working out, I found that the ear buds shape is very conducive to fitting properly in the ear and still stay in place even though they're not "meant" for working out. -Performance (9/10) : As far as ear buds go, without going into the hundreds of dollars category, I think these are some of the best performance you are going to get. The bass is a little low, but the crisp quality really shines when you get into the quality of hearing every note and word an artist is actually singing. The sound is well balanced between both ear buds and its up to the Bose high quality standard. -Comfort (8/10): I purchased these earbuds to replace my old cheap JVC ones for workouts and casual listening. First off it's worth noting that these are not noise cancelling, that said they are still good for the gym and home listening so you don't have people shouting at you to get your attention. I actually quite like that. They come with 3 different sizes for your ears and fit well. -Value (on sale, 9/10, regular price 6/10) : I bought these when they came on sale for boxing week for [price] that's spot on value for what you are getting, at regular price of [price] it's too expensive. They come with (what looks like a nice leathery) small travel case to keep them safe which I use all the time. They also come with 3 different sized gel ear fillers for different sizes which actually fit quite well.

Great sound quality, but...

Sound quality is excellent, and the headphones are very comfortable. Was also pleasantly surprised that all of the track skip/volume/play/pause buttons worked with my Blackberry Q10. Only drawback is the fact that they are not great in a noisy environment such as the gym, as they do not block out all external noise

Good Value

Got these headphones on sale, would buy again. Good alternative to the shoddy pair that come with your cell phone. I keep them in the case when not in use and feel good that this will help extend the lifespan. Big fan of the multiple size of cushions that come in the package as ear buds tend to fall out of my ears if I'm using them while active. Sound quality is also really good.

Not bad for the price

Pretty decent earphones very smooth sound tho barely any bass ofc I was expecting that from bose, if your looking for bass in earphones this ain't the right choice for you, if it's quality and smoothness of sound that you seek I highly recommend it

Overall Amazing But Warranting them Sucks!

I use them almost every day for 2-3 hours i have only had them for about 5 months when the right ear stopped working and when you are paying(price) i would expect them to last a little longer. Having to warranty them sucks you cant just go to the store to get a new pair. They have to be sent out and i can take up to 3 weeks to receive a new pair or 2 weeks if you have the geek-squad protection plan and you get a gift card.

The other day i went and bought a iPhone but the earbuds apple give me wouldn't stay in my ears and they didn't sound really good. I bought a pair of monster adidas earbuds during christmas of 2014 and they were the worst earbuds i have ever bought. The monster earbuds kept breaking and the ear pieces kept falling off and they didn't even last a year. Today June 5 2015 i went to best buy and bought these Bose earbuds and i love them. The only thing that is bad about them is the price. These Bose earbuds sound amazing and they stay in your ear and best of all the look of them!!!!

Comfortable,but flat sound

I love the ergonomics of this headphones, they are very, very, very comfortable; however, the sound quality is just OK. The headphones do not cancel the noise (subway, gym music), no bass at all....flat sound. I think this product is kinda overpriced.

They break SO easily

This has been my 3rd pair, and they break so easily. Ive barely had this pair for a week and they broke. Other than that, they are really great, comfort and quality wise

The best earbuds under $[...]

I bought this pair of earphones as soon as I came back to Canada in September, since my Monster Nergy died of my abusive cleaning methods (I used a pin to clean the metal net and ended up stuck into the earbuds). I had to say that I loved the fair clarity and adequate bass of my old Monster, and I'm the kinda person who like old earphones (you "shape" your earphones into your own flavor by listening to music styles you like). However this twice priced BOSE did not impress me when I listened to it in the first few days. But one day I used it on my Macbook Air, and compared to the sound plugging it in my iPhone 4, it is astonishing that the sound is much better on the Mac! Then I tried it on my friend's iPod touch 5, and it was better than iPhone 4, too! I searched online and found no official statistics about the resistance. Only a person posted online that he tested his IE2 and the experimental resistance is about 32 ohm! That's obviously ridiculous for earphones designed for iPhones! So now I'm using an iPhone 5S (my iPhone 4 is too old anyway) and purchased quiet comfort silicon earbuds for better bass and sound isolation. I cannot agree with the other reviewer who said he cannot hear the noise on aircraft with this earphone on. I had to turn the volume over half line to listen to music on bus when I was using the original earbuds! Well the clarity is a compromise for better bass, but I just want to protect my ears since I want to enjoy the music longer. Overall the BOSE freestyle is very comfortable, and offers quite satisfying sound clarity, bass, and detail. But this is a $[...]earphone, not a $[....] one. So cope with the sound isolation problem, and buy the protection plan, or prepared for buying another one in a year because of wire aging (a common problem of BOSE products).

I just bought these headphones and this will be the first time I spent more then [$price] on headphones and I got to say it was worth it. It has great bass and these headphones stay in no matter how hard I shake my head. It fits all sizes and i tested them on the plane and I can tell you I can't hear anyone around me. Great job BOSE!!! I recommend for hard ear bud users.
