Bose Corporation Key Developments
Bose Corporation Introduces SIE2 and SIE2i Sport Headphones
Sep 19 12
Bose Corporation introduces the SIE2 and SIE2i sport headphones, the first Bose in-ear headphones specifically engineered for exercise. Both deliver unmatched performance for sport headphones, combining high-quality audio, stability, sweat- and water-resistance and durability -- all in a sport-inspired design that complements any athlete's workout, from casual gym-goers to cross-trainers and avid runners. For added convenience, an exclusive Reebok(R) fitness armband holds a mobile phone or digital music player securely in place, and is included with both models. The Bose(R) SIE2 sport headphones can be used with most music players, and the SIE2i sport headphones are designed exclusively for listening to music and taking calls from select Apple devices, including an iPhone and iPod. The SIE2i in-line remote and microphone provides easy access to certain Apple(R) phone voice commands and lets owners adjust volume and navigate through stored music. The SIE2 and SIE2i headphones feature exclusive Bose TriPort(R) acoustic technology, ensuring audio is reproduced with full, balanced sound. Regardless of the genre, music sounds smooth and natural, instruments have better detail and definition, and there is no manufactured "boost" across the frequency range; low notes are deep and rich, and mid-high frequencies and vocals are reproduced with improved clarity. The SIE2 and SIE2i headphones feature durable cable construction for strength, flexibility and the rigors of daily use. They also have acoustic ports positioned to resist sweat and water and are covered with a hydrophobic cloth to keep moisture out while letting sound pass through. And the in-line remote and microphone included with the SIE2i headphones has watertight button housings and a hydrophobic acoustic windscreen to reduce the effects of wind noise and moisture. For comfort and stability, the SIE2 and SIE2i headphones include proprietary Bose(R) StayHear(R) tips (in small, medium and large) that conform securely and comfortably to the ear's shape, reducing irritating pressure points and the need for continuous adjustments. The open design of the ear tips allows owners to listen to music at moderate listening volumes while remaining aware of their surroundings -- an essential feature for anyone who exercises outdoors.
