“I do love Bose products. I have over ear headphones and also a speaker and they are both great so I was fairly confident these earbuds would be a similarly great product. I wasn’t disappointed. Got these for a few long haul flights. The noise cancellation is strong and blocks out any crying children while producing high quality sound for my Spotify playlist, connection to my iPad for movies etc. while long battery life. Also comfortable when going for a run each morning and despite having weird ears that I would expect an earbud to fall out of and lose, that hasn’t happened once since I got them about 9 months ago.”

“Bose certainly delivers over and above with Quiet Comfort earbuds II. I am so happy to have chosen them over AirPods Pro 2. The noise cancellation is way too good and the option of creating your own modes per your liking is a great feature. I am very impressed with the wholesome bass boost sound especially for metal heads like me. The phone calls are nice n clear on it as well. I am yet to test the fit on the run however, they have been great on the walks so far. Highly recommend these quality earbuds.”

“5.0 out of 5 stars i used to hate earbuds

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 17, 2022

I've only ever previously had earbuds in the £30-£40 range and never got on with them, i found them uncomfortable and in some cases it felt like the speaker was touching my eardrum (best i can explain it).

the more oval shape of these (while a non-standard fitting making replacements more difficult) are vastly more comfortable than any earbud i have ever worn before.

the noise cancelling is so effective i have to turn it on when out walking because i'm worried i'll get run over.

on the other side people who find noise and crowds a source of anxiety will find the noise cancelling on these a blessing.

at home when i want to block out the TV and listen to music for a bit is where this pays off for me though

the controls have taken some getting used to but after a while its fine

i now prefer to wear these while out walking over my Sennheiser over ears.

completely changed my view on earbuds”

“After reading all the descriptions and Q&A's, it appears that Bose really backs these NEW Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II, and convinced me and probably other customers to buy the ear buds. However, the REALITY is, that these earbuds DO NOT securely fit in your ear and constantly fall out. Yes, i followed Bose's instructions, watched video, and read the customers' reviews. Don't matter, these ear buds are too bulky and are not secure in your ear. They will fall out when you run/jump, or when you're talking. I used the small buds and the medium ones. Same problem! Yes Mr. Bose, i did follow instructions and twist the buds to try and secure in ear! they still fell out!

However, the sound is great! noise cancellation is not so great. also the mics on the buds is too low, even at a higher volume. I wonder why Bose this product even has mikes if you cannot hear people talking around you. Also, trying to figure out special features by using your finger did not work well either. When trying to swipe for louder volume or other features with your fingers is tough unless you have small fingers i believe. The design is terrible for people that would use them to work out....really work out. You cannot wear a hoody or beanie (knit cap) because it will move and dislodge ear buds from your ear and they fall out. I'm very disappointed as I only purchase Bose products because of the sound quality. These ear buds are just NOT PRACTICAL. I wish Bose would fix this, I'll have to try another brand or an older Bose ear buds that will stay in your ear when working out.”

“I think these are the closest you can get to commercial grade Bluetooth in-ear monitors. If you’re not familiar with the way in-ears fit I’d definitely try them out if you can.

These sound extremely high quality.

The noise equalizer is super effective.

I will say: they definitely are an adjustment for me coming from AirPods / learning the new earbud button options has taken some time as well as being cautious about not touching them if I don’t want my noise to pause. (All controls are changeable through the Bose app)

With that being said I think it’s totally worth it & have been wearing them nonstop since I’ve gotten them.”

“Avid audible customer and like to zone out on public transport. Don’t like over ear headphones when travelling so these were exactly what I was looking for. Two modes are also perfect - quiet (zone out) aware (you can hear)

Nice small little case, ear buds don’t fall out when walking or running. Great set of extras to ensure a perfect fit. Highly recommended!”

“These are fantastic and a massive upgrade in several important ways to the first edition. Sound quality is brilliant, particularly the bass. A lot deeper and more full sound than tinny air pod pros. You can use the Bose app to adjust sound to your liking.

Noise cancelling is the best available - I think by now everyone knows this about Bose.

Best for me was the smaller size relative to the first version and the array of customised silicone adjustments possible for the in ear fit. I do a lot of exercise and whether it's a cycle, run, or burpee - you can be sure these will be comfortable and stable just for you. Highly recommended.”

“I would give these 5 stars if it wasn’t for the occasional connectivity issues. I returned my previous pair because one of the earbuds randomly disconnected from the case and just stopped working. It meant that you couldn’t connect the earbuds to any other device because you need both earbuds in the case in order to connect to a phone or other thing. I returned and got the same earbuds because I was otherwise so happy with the quality of the audio, noise canceling, mic quality, and the different size tips and bands that overall make these far superior to my AirPod pros and they actually stay in my ears. The connectivity still sometimes is a little wonky and I wish you could tell how much charge was in the actual charging case and not just the individual buds but overall I highly recommend these.”

“Best earbuds I have ever had. Very comfortable to wear if you sleep on your side. Noise canceling is excellent and they sound verygood. I have had them for a bit and find out they will NOT charge if the case is being charged at the same time. It will charge up but has to be removed from external power if you want the earbuds to charge. About every two days or so they brain fart and refuse to connect. This leads to a complete restart for the phone and the earbuds. My $20.00 dollar TOZO earbuds connect everytime. So when these die I will by TOZO brand. 225 bucks for these is way too expensive.”

“I bought these headphones recently and while I am enjoying the great Bose sound I become accustomed to with previous Bose headphones, the battery life and connectivity with these leaves much to be desired.

I like the dual-use storage and charge case, but a single full charge on these headphones lasts only about 5 hours. My previous pair of Bose headphones lasted more than 9. So in the middle of the day I have to recharge the headphones instead of getting a full day out of them. They should be designed to last a solid 8 hours--at least.

They also drop the BT connection with my iphone pretty regularly. Sometimes they get confused (I guess) and one of the headphones won't turn on. When this happens, I have return them to the case and reset before they will start working properly. Sometimes they won't connect at all and I have to repeat these steps several times before they finally connect. Other times they simply change BT outlets for no reason at all. This is very frustrating in the middle of a run. They're very moody so to speak.

Based on those factors, I would recommend people wait until the next version appears and hopefully some of these issues get worked out. I don't have these issues with any other BT items I own.

Note: I originally awarded these with 3 stars, but reduced to two as I have had them longer.”

Through the real user review of Bose Quietcomfort Earbuds 2 , it can be seen that it is a good completely wireless sports earbuds, but it also has shortcomings, such as overpriced and not comfortable enough to wear. There are many sports headphones in the market, and the most comfortable design is bone conduction headphones, because it is not plug into your ear. Therefore, if you want to find a sports earphone with a more comfortable wearing experience, Wissonly Hi Runner sports bone conduction headphone is a good substitute.

This is the fastest growing brand of bone conduction headphones in the last six months. The team are all engineers with 10 years of accumulation in the field of bone conduction technology. They started to develop bone conduction headphones that don't hurt ears as early as 2012. To solve the problem of sound leakage of bone conduction headphones, wissonly has made comprehensive improvement in the aspects of vibrator, body design and software optimization. The final result has been applied to Wissonly Hi Runner, and the final sound leakage can be reduced by 90% after laboratory test. I actually used the test myself. At a distance of 2cm, the volume reached 70%, but I still didn't hear the sound of the headphones, which protected my privacy.

Wissonly Hi Runner’s body is made of titanium, which can self-adjust the fitting position to ensure a good wearing experience for headphones, so that more people can wear it. Hi Runner sports bone conduction headphones are open-eared and worn directly on the temples, so your ear canal is completely open, which makes it easy for you to hear the sound of cars and traffic lights outdoors in sports scenes such as running and walking, making you safer to use.

As the core component of the product, the headphones plays a key role in the product experience. Hi Runner model is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 chip, which makes Bluetooth connection faster and more stable. It also has 32GB of built-in storage so you can use it as an MP3 player.

Other parameters of Wissonly Hi Runner are also excellent. For example, the waterproof level reaches IPX8, and you can wear it to swim or even dive. The battery life reaches 8-10 hours, which is very important to me, because I go out for sports on weekends, and I go out for a whole day.
