Bose Tri-port Headphone Tips

I have been using these headphones for a while now and they have been working great. They keep out the sound of the annoying safety videos on planes while flying, I can hear clearly on the motorcycle, they don’t irritate the ears after riding some time and you can clearly hear a nice solid base in the head phones. The one annoying part is the tips, when ever I pull them out o my pocket or out of bag there is always a possibility that tip might fall off and this time I ran out of extra tips. I went onto ebay to find some headphone tips, they sell them in bunches so I bought 10 pieces of the medium size for $11 from a supplier in Hong Kong since their weren’t that many other choices, I’m just hoping that they are the same quality and fit, I’m worried they might be fake or might cause irritation at a later point but I really like these headphones so hopefully this will solve my problem of losing those tips.

    yeah i had the same problem i recently lost one of the tips….. I actualy bought the original ones through amazon and it shipped from bose i got 2 pairs for about 7 dollars but i had to pay 4 KD to aramex :s which got pretty expensive for a pair of tips, but as you said these are the best head phones i’ve use ;)

    The bose are ok. If you really want great in ear performance try the Shure 530 or the klipsch x10. These will play louder with deeper base, better sound proofing. Because they sit deep in the ear cannal you will not even know they are there. like you i am on a plane 10-20 hours a week so i have tried every headphone on the market. Keep writing this blog its the best!!!

  3. I lost a bunch of tips myself over the years, the Bose stores in the States used to give free replacements but now they started charging.

  4. Isnt it dangerous to ride ur bike with headphones in your ears?

    How much did you get the Bose Tri-Ports for?

    You couldve bought them from the Hong Kong dealer on ebay. They are the exact same thing, just cheaper becauzse hong kong guys buy it in bulk

  6. Just in time with your post, I have been searching for good headphones… I’m usually left quite disappointed.
