Quick Review: Bose in-ear Headphones

Let me start by saying, I have been trying to find a set of headphones I like, for probably about 5 years. So this was no easy task to say the least. Finding a set that I actually say is good, that is. Some of the criteria for searching was that they must be ear bud type, comfortable enough to wear all day if necessary, not fall out of your ears every 35 seconds, and finally not have a cord that is over 3 feet. The pair I had previous to this was a set of Etymotic ER-6's. They were ok at best, but I wont go into that, since this review is for the Bose. At first I was looking at some of the over the ear Bose headphones, and ended up with the in ear ones. My girlfriend had a set for about a month before I got mine, so I was fortunate enough to be able to do a try before I buy deal. I pretty much knew I was going to buy these within minutes of trying them out. They are by far the most comfortable set of in ear headphones I have ever used, not to mention they sound great too. Now I know what you are thinking, Bose, they must cost a fortune. Well no, they don't. They are $99! Sometimes on sale for $89! That is really cheap in the grand scheme of things. If you have an iPhone don't worry, they work with both the first gen iPhone as well as the 3G. In the box, you get several gel sizes to fit in almost any size ear comfortably. I can say first hand, you can literally wear these headphones all day with no discomfort. If you have been looking for a really good set of headphones for not a lot of money, these are the headphones you have been waiting for.
