I’ve never really bought into the hype of over-priced headphones and earbuds. I understand the value of high quality speakers, but never thought there could be that much difference in portable audio accessories. I know they provide better sound than a $10 pair but never saw the need to have an expensive set. I can somewhat understand paying more for noise-canceling headphones, but with as quick as I go through headphones and earbuds, I never saw them as worth it for me.
Recently, I decided to start looking for a nicer pair of earbuds that I could use while working out. One of the major problems with earbuds is their tendency to fall out while moving a lot. I went on Best Buy’s website and started looking at earbuds to see what I could find. That’s when I found the Bose MIE2i earbuds. They have a patented Stay Hear feature that provides extra support in the ear so that they are less likely to move around and fall out. I asked around on Twitter and read the reviews and saw mostly positive things about them. Everyone I talked to said they love the sound quality. I decided to bit the bullet and buy these as they were the only ones I could find that looked like they would provide a durable, comfortable fit.
As soon as I tried these bad boys out I was not disappointed. I get it now. I understand why people opt for the high quality equipment. The sounds produced by these tiny buds were amazing. The basses were deep and I heard other tones in my music that I’ve never heard before. It was like experiencing some of my favorite music as if it were my first time listening. I knew right away that I would not feel bad about dropping $130 on earbuds. I should note that I use my earbuds a lot as I use them while working out as well as pretty much all day at work. Best Buy even ran a sale on them this week so I took my receipt back and got $13 back, so these great earbuds are now even more worth it. Even though I’ve only had them for a week, I definitely recommend them.
