Pros:Fantastic sound! Comfortable! 30-day guarantee

Cons:Minor - storage case does not have anything to which to wind the wires around

The Bottom Line: If you are looking for excellent in-ear headphones, this is the one to buy


I have been a Bose fan for a long time so despite the bad reviews, I went ahead and bought these in-ear headphones - and I don't regret it.

I just bought these in-ear headphones today. The Bose sales person informed me that this is the latest model - 3rd generation. Bose improved the ear tips - they are now more secure - I examined their floor sample and indeed the ear tips are not so easily removed - you have to peel them off.

The salesperson also informed me that Bose will replace older generations of these headphones with this new one for free for anyone who brings it to a Bose store. And regarding the review which states that Bose charges $5 for replacement ear tips, the sales person assured me that is not true - Bose provides replacement ear tips for free.

So I tried on these headphones - I was blown away by the sound!

Comfort - I am still not sure - I didn't feel any awkwardness in the way it sits on the bowl of the ear but I have to use it for several hours before I can come to a conclusion on comfort.

As with any product, you get what you pay for, so I am extremely pleased with this despite the price - in other words, the price is just right for what it delivers.

March 26, 2008 UPDATE: The longest time I have now used these headphones is for 6 hours and they did not hurt at all! So these get 5 stars for comfort!!!
