Very true.REDEYE said:They look as if they might stick out too far to use under a helmet. I know that as a ear bud user if it will not fit fully in the ear without sticking out the experience will be painful.I would test fit them before I bought them.
I agree that most Bose products are very overrated and worth about pne fourth of what they sell for, and anything involving electronics is subpar, but the one thing they have always been good at is making speakers. Their new line of headphones and earbuds are quite good. The Shure E2s have a great reputation but I haven't heard them.While I can't speak for those particular Bose parts, I can only tell you that Bose is usually very overpriced but mediocre (and worse) audio equipment in the sound fidelity department. Bose does, however, have lots of money for good advertising
