I’m completely reliant on music when I run. I absolutely love my Bose ie2’s, but I’m so afraid of damaging them with the sweat. I’m going to have to check out the sie2’s. Thanks for sharing!

I find the more I run, the less I use music. Occasionally, I’ll pull out the headphones when I’m having a hard time getting motivated… or am forced to the treadmill. I love my OneGood earbud from Far End Gear.
I have never found a pair of earbuds that would stay in my ears — will have to check these out!
I MUST have music. It’s a cold day in hell when I run without them. It’s the only chance I have to listen to Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Adam Levine, etc. without getting ragged on by my better half. I’ve been looking to get a new set of headphones. The price on these is definitely out of my league though.
Favorite song to get me through a workout has to be Wild Ones by Flo Rida. Not sure why but it always gets me through!
I’ve been thinking about new earphones.. and I normally woudl NEVER pay that much for a pair. However, I do love that they come with the armband. I use earphone when I am working at the gym.
those look really cool! I hve to wear the kind that wrap around my ear or they fall out!!!

Thanks for this review! I love the style of the headphones that twist into your ear. I used YurBuds for while for the comfort but I really missed the function where you can change the song, volume etc on the cord! I will definitely give these a try!
I’ve gone to not using music at all. I think it’s nice to have music to push you along, but it’s been nice to focus on my breathing and control my pace on my own for a change. I’ve tried everything from yurbuds to the adidas headphones, and I’ve never been able to keep something in my ears. However, these Bose headphones seem pretty legit, and I don’t really think that price should be a deterrent for something like this that you’ll likely use on a regular basis.
