    Hello,
    I received a pair of Bose In-Ears as a gift a while back, and I'm generally satisfied with the sound quality and feel of them. However, I'm thinking of getting some Apple In-Ears for the remote and microphone function and I'm wondering how they compare to the Bose ones I have now.
    Well, I really just want to know how the bass is and how comfortable they are.

    And yes, I know Bose is more of a name brand than quality, but they were a gift, so I can't complain.

    Many people have reported the ADDIEMs to be neutral, so because you're ears have become used to the overwhelming bass of the Bose, so you're initial impressions of the ADDIEMs might be crap.

    No, I'm just saying swapping from polar opposites might make the ADDIEMs sound bad. I've never heard them yet, so can't exactly say how much bass.

    Oh, ok, thanks.. I figured there was an "in ear" in there, haha.
    I guess I'll see if I can try the Apple In-Ears first hand and there's always Bass Booster in the EQ settings if I'm dissatisfied at first.
    Thanks.

    I try not to use EQ's on the iPod, try and get used to them with your ears (No EQ) for a few days and see if you enjoy them.

    Oh, why not? I know it kills battery faster but aside from that I don't see your reasoning..
