WOW ~ So Worth It!!
Just had to leave a review. This was third time lucky for me, after purchasing two fake pairs off Ebay I decided I was only going to buy if they have the hologram this time proving they're the real McCoy (buyers beware)!!
Waited for a quiet evening to crack them open and WOW the sound is truly amazing, lovely deep bass but still keeping vocal clarity they really do make listening a pleasure. I have a wave unit and must say they give th same sort of experience.... You have to go careful not to blow your brains out though LOL.
With regard to fakes, watch out for:-
1) Poor quality zipped pouch with dotted effect to the word Bose embossed on case.
2) There should be a teeny hole next to the R and L printed on each earpiece (not to be confused with the bigger hole on the side).
3) They sound pants.
4) To be 100% sure only buy ones with a hologram!
IF ANYONE WANTS TO CONTACT ME TO ASK FOR MORE TELL TALE SIGNS FEEL FREE TO MESSAGE ME COS IT'S NOT FUNNY PAYING £30 ODD POUNDS FOR FAKE BOSE.......

I thought I would treat myself to Bose headphones because I had read a lot of good things about their reputation. I'm not that much of a sound snob to justify the really expensive ones so thought I would dip my toe in at this level. The case they came in was a rather nice touch - though realistically I'm not sure how much I'll use it. The earphones don't come completely 'ready to use'. You have to choose from three pairs of 'buds' - S, M and L sizes. Once you've put them on the headphones, you're ready to listen and having established that I was a medium I really appreciated the sound quality - the snug fit of the latex helps eliminate quite a bit of noise although I know from reviews there are other Bose models that do this much, much better. My big complaint about these headphones is that the buds are very easily detached - and therefore easily lost. I have already had to buy another set of three pairs. I've checked how I am attaching them with the online manual - I just think that's how they are designed. It's a bit of a shame as the headphones are nice and robust otherwise and the lanyard that was included really helps keep them in your ears. Overall I would give them 7/10 for great sound quality but it could easily have been a 9 if the b****y buds didn't keep falling off!
I'm and avid fan and anything Bose is GREAT & thats it.
What can I say about Bose? The build quallity is always First Class, The sound quality is out of this world. They even made my Very Very Cheep MP3 player sound good. OK so they can appear expensive, but you get it back over and over again in the shear joy you get from the Bose sound.
If you can get a good deal on Ebay, (I did) then you win hands down.
If you get a set of Bose Quiet Comfort, "on ear" Headphones that is the only ones that will beat them.
I would recommend Bose in ear headphones to anyone, infact I would recommend anything made by Bose.

Bose: Top Quality In-Ear Headphones
I have bought 3 sets of Sennheiser headphone for my Ipod & Sansa MP3 players to replace the ones supplied with the products. I have been entirely satisfied with the models I bought. I also bought a low cost Ipod docking station (the low cost one from Ebuyer).
In Christmas 2009 my girlfriend bought a Bose Ipod dock from Rackhams, the cost, whilst a lot more than the budget buy (which we were happy with) seemed to be money well spent. It looks a better product & sounds better too.
I decided to get a pair of Bose in the ear headphones. These were more than I paid for the Sennheiser headphones but again the price was worth paying. The leads are larger and more robust (one pair of CX500 broke) and the sound quality seems better.
The trouble is when trying to buy these is are they real or are they fake. I bought a set in auction from a seller who does not sell these as a rule with positive feedback. I have subsequently bought a second pair in similar circumstances.
The bass is great, they fit snuggly and the music definitely sounds better. They look good too and it shows you are serious about quality!
Bose In-ear Headphones
I decided to buy these for my husband as part of his christmas present,as the ones he had been using for his i pod were very worn,i had heard alot of good reports about bose and the price i paid for them brand new (£40)including p&p wre very good compared to the shop prices.
I also decided to buy myself a new pair and paid the same price for them,we are both very pleased with the good clear sound,if there is one slight negetive it is that the silicone ear buds tend to come off easy,i have already lost one of mine.
But overall an excellent pair of headphones.
