Bose is the most over hyped, under performing , over priced name in the audio world. For decades now their slogan "better sound through research" has been more accurately referred to as "better sound through marketing". Bose products might not be worth buying but Amar Bose was worth his weight in good. He helped mold an industry and really knew how to run a company. RIP.
I personally LOVE my Bose MIE2 earbuds and haven't found another set of buds that compete with them. I'd also disagree that their stuff is "over-hyped." Granted they are over-priced but from their home audio line to the Sound Wave series, they make great sounding stuff.

Dave; MIE2, really? "Shakes head" I've heard a whole host of earbuds that sound better and no Beats aren't anywhere on that list. My earbuds for use at home are Shure se425 which are one the best earbuds you can buy in the sub
Maybe HH should review more home audio equipment? You would see the major downfalls to Bose's cost cutting measures and poor designs. Their subwoofers alone aren't true subwoofers but just another speaker in a subwoofer cabinet which you can hear vocals through, something a real sub should not be capable of. In the end whether a certain peoples ears can or can't tell the quality difference between Bose and real audiophile brands, your pocketbook can since any Bose product can be matched by competing devices costing 1/8 as much. That's a huge different in cost for a Bose logo under your tv.
Cut myself off; * My earbuds for use at home are Shure se425 which are one the best earbuds you can buy in the sub $1k custom molded earbud market. My active wear buds for working out hiking camping snow wording are my older Shure se215.
this awesome man will be missed.
sevags, thank you, could not agree more. We don't sell Bose at my store and that makes me glad. When people come in looking for Bose, I ask them why pay more for less?
