I need some help trying to decide which headphones to go with. I am looking at purchasing Sonys MDR-EX90LP or the Bose TriPort IE. I searched the internet to get the technical specs on the Bose headphones but could not find any. When I emailed Bose to try and get the information this is what I recived: "Thank you for your message.
There is a great deal of variety in response-measuring techniques. Most of these techniques neglect how a listening environment can affect the response. On top of that, there is no clear and easy methodology for comparing responses. Each company uses a different means of measuring db reduction and frequency response.
Our feeling is that response curves are a poor customer tool for comparing systems. For this reason, Bose(R) elects not to publish curves.
Bose does offer a 30 day test of our headsets so that you may use them in your own listening environment and evaluate them yourself.
For additional information or to place an order, please contact one of our Customer Focus Representatives at 800-999-2673 ext. EM1. They are open Mon-Fri from 8:30 AM to 11:00 PM est and Sat and Sun from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Our specialists will be happy to assist you.
Thank you for contacting Bose Corporation.

The Bose headphones only cost a few dollars more then the Sony ones, thats the only reason I am considering going that route.
