Bose® IE2 audio headphones

  • High-quality audio with instrumental and vocal detail
  • Advanced design, durable materials for lasting quality
  • StayHear® tips for greater stability during exercise and other activities
  • Hours of comfortable on-the-go listening
  • Protective carrying case included

Bose® IE2 audio headphones set a high standard for sound reproduction that conventional ear buds can't match. They feature an enhanced acoustic design that helps music sound smoother and more natural. And our enhanced construction provides a more secure fit and improved durability.

More natural sound

Bose® IE2 audio headphones reproduce music with more range and realism than most typical ear buds. A modified port design, in concert with our proprietary TriPort® acoustic headphone structure results in a richer audio performance, with more detail in music's high frequencies. More clarity, even at louder volume levels — an overall presence you'd expect from much larger headphones.

Designed to stay put while you move

Proprietary StayHear® silicone tips offer greater in-ear stability during exercise and other active sports. Advanced materials and design allow the tips to nestle inside the bowl of the ear while also naturally conforming to the ear's upper ridge. The tips come in three sizes to fit listeners' ears comfortably for hours on end.

StayHear® tips are also designed to remain more securely on the headphone itself. Overall, they provide a better on-the-go listening experience.

More durability

Bose® IE2 audio headphones are sturdier than ever, thanks to advanced materials, construction and manufacturing techniques—all adding up to more lasting quality for you. Each pair undergoes rigorous testing to meet Bose standards for performance and durability.

Versatility and convenience

Bose® IE2 audio headphones are engineered specifically for listening with MP3 players, laptops and portable CD players. The cable's angled plug fits directly into sources with recessed headphone jacks.

Also included: a sleek, protective carrying case with room for a portable MP3 player.

How comfortable are Bose® IE2 audio headphones?

Bose® IE2 audio headphones were designed for a comfortable fit, but also a stable one. Our redesigned StayHear® tips provide a more stable in-ear fit, ideal for extended wear. The material and shape of the ear tips were specifically selected, designed and tested for comfort and stability. The tips come in small, medium and large sizes so you can choose what fits best.

Can I use Bose® IE2 audio headphones with my portable or home audio devices?

Yes. Bose® IE2 audio headphones can be used to listen to your favourite audio sources. These include CD players, DVD players, digital music players and personal computers. As most of these portable players use a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bose® IE2 audio headphones can be used without an adapter.

Are these headphones noise cancelling?

No. While the ear tips may physically block some noise, the headphones aren't designed for this purpose, and they don't include active noise cancelling technology.
