With a Bose® MIE2i Mobile headset you’ll enjoy enhanced audio quality and convenience from your iPhone, iPad or iPod. Take calls on your iPhone with one-touch ease. Switch back to your music at the touch of a button. With an integrated inline remote located on the back of the microphone, you can adjust volume, play/pause tracks, skip tracks forward/backward, fast forward/rewind and change playlists — and you need never miss a call. And enjoy it all in Bose® quality sound.
The Bose® MIE2i Mobile headset brings you a standard of audio performance from your Apple products – that’s unmatched by conventional mobile headsets. It features an enhanced acoustic design to complement our acclaimed TriPort® acoustic headphone structure. The result? Your music has a smoother, more natural quality with greater detail and clarity. Your calls will sound clearer, too, with the added benefit of hearing them in "stereo" instead of through a single, mono earpiece.
When your iPhone rings, a single touch to the answer/end button automatically pauses your music or video and frees you to take your call. The MIE2i Mobile headset’s powerful omnidirectional microphone ensures your voice is picked and can be clearly heard – with no need to hold it to your lips. Another touch ends your call taking you back to your chosen iPhone media exactly where you left off.
Proprietary StayHear® silicone tips offer greater in-ear stability during walking, exercise and other active sports. Advanced materials and design allow the tips to nestle inside the bowl of the ear while naturally conforming to the ear's upper ridge. The tips come in three sizes to ensure a comfortable fit for hours on end. StayHear® tips also rest more securely on the headset itself. Overall, they provide a more reliable on-the-go experience for taking calls and listening to your iPhone.
The MIE2i headset is sturdier than ever, thanks to the advanced materials and manufacturing techniques that go into its construction. It all adds up to more lasting quality for you. Every MIE2i headset undergoes rigorous testing to ensure that it meets Bose standards for performance and durability.

How comfortable is the Bose® MIE2i Mobile headset?
Like Bose® IE2 audio headphones and the Bose® MIE2, the Bose® MIE2i headset was designed for a comfortable fit, but also a stable one. Our redesigned StayHear® tips provide that 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.
How do I connect the Bose® MIE2i Mobile headset to my iPhone, iPod, iPad or MacBook?
The Bose® MIE2i Mobile headset plugs directly into your Apple product at the headphone/headset jack.
What type of microphone is used with the MIE2i headset, and where is it located?
The MIE2i Mobile headset uses an omnidirectional, inline microphone. (An omnidirectional microphone picks up sound from any direction, regardless of where the microphone is pointed.) The MIE2i headset microphone is located about 10 cm below the right earbud in the black plastic housing. With the inline remote control you can adjust volume, play/pause tracks, skip forward/back on tracks, fast-forward or rewind within tracks and playlists. Depending on your Apple product, you may also be able to answer/end phone calls, switch between calls, and decline an incoming call. The microphone supports mobile communications, and you can access certain voice applications, such as VoiceOver or Voice Control, where available. These buttons are located in the microphone housing.
How do I use the Mobile headset for listening to music or video and also for taking/ending calls?
You can enjoy your iPhone’s music and video through the MIE2i Mobile headset as you would our regular IE2 headphones. However, when a call comes in, you have the option simply to press the answer/end button on the microphone to take the call. To end the call, press the answer/end button again.
Are these headphones noise cancelling?
No. While the ear tips may physically block some noise, the headphones aren't specifically designed for this purpose, and they don't include active noise cancelling technology.
Which functions can be operated through the inline control?
Apart from taking or ending calls, you can adjust your Apple product’s volume, play/pause tracks, skip tracks forward/backward, fast forward/rewind and change playlists.
