    Does anybody own a pair of these? I would like to buy some good in-ear headphones for when i go mountain biking or jogging. How is the quality? Is it worth the price? Thank you! :)

    not sure about the price difference but id HIGHLY recommend some shures....sound quality is amazing and totally worth the money, if anything happens to them in 2 years you get a brand new pair free

    head-fi.com would be the right place to see your best options.

    Also, www.headphone.com has a ton of reviews and plain information that is incredibly helpful.

    I'm just now working on becoming an audiophile.

    I have a pair of the bose ones, they have awesome sound quality. The only downside is the design. There is a rubber piece that attaches on, but is interchangeable with different sizes. That piece tends to always fall off, i have lost almost all of them. Get ones that go around your ear if you are going to do any hyperactive sports like running. Good luck

    Yeah I had the same problem with my set as well, but Bose sent me a completely new set of rubber pieces that are supposed to stay on better. So far I haven't lost any of the new ones.

    I'd stick with something cheaper for jogging or mountain biking, like EP-630 or JVC marshmellows and only use expensive stuff while resting comfortably at home.

    I'm selling an NIB (unopened) pair for 70 bucks in Yardsale.

    So I cracked and opened in the Bose in-ear phones I had and I must say, they sound damn nice.

    Clarity, extreme comfort, great bass response, very natural and sound much larger then you'd expect.
