    Great wireless earbuds my iPhone X!

    I recently acquired the Bose SoundSport Free wireless earbuds for myself. I gave my roommate a pair of these for Christmas, so it’s nice to see for myself what he’s been raving about.
    The initial reaction to the product is typical Bose: quality packaging, easy set-up and beautiful design. The earbuds are easily connected to my iPhone X via the downloadable Bose app. This model has a feature to locate a lost earbud, which is amazing and necessary considering the small size of the buds. The app also works for multiple newer Bose Bluetooth devices, so no need for multiple apps. There are several handy features included in the app and it’s easy to navigate as well.
    The sound quality is typical Bose as well; powerful, rich and detailed. The quality is better than most wireless earbuds that I’ve tried. They also work well for phone calls and the clarity is good. Phone calls are only heard in the left earbud, so for some this may take adjustment. Not really a problem, but different.
    The fit and feel is secure and comfortable. Well designed and great for all activities. The isolation/noise reduction factor is perfect for music and phone calls. Different sized silicone ear inserts are included to insure a perfect fit. I didn’t experience any discomfort or fatigue after hours of continuous use. Battery life is great too, and the portable charging case is able provides 2 full charges on the go.
    In conclusion, I can easily recommend these awesome earbuds. The price was recently reduced, so try them out. Bose has a great warranty and wonderful customer service, so no worries.

    Good but not great

    Good:
    Good sound for small headphones, truly wireless, can stay in place for long runs.

    Bad:
    Poor fit (at least for me), bulky design and case, causes ear pain after prolonged use.

    Great sound quality and design, but they aren't flawless

    I am sort of addicted to headphones, and I have several different pairs of Bose, and a set of AirPods. These are some of the best in terms of sound quality, and they pair quickly, thanks to the Bose connect app. I would say that between these, and the Bose Soundsport Wireless, for me - I prefer the SoundSport Wireless, because those are pretty much perfect in every way.

    These sound identical, but only the right ear works for phone calls, meetings, etc - and these are a little more of a hassle to connect to my MacBook than the others.

    That said - these are EXTREMELY comfortable, and stay in my ears better than any other pair of headphones I've ever tried. Couple that with the sound quality that we've all come to expect from Bose, and these are definitely a solid purchase *if* you are looking for a true-wireless headphone solution. If you are just looking for bluetooth, and don't mind a wire going behind your head in between the 2 ear buds, I would definitely give the nod to the SoundSport Wireless.

    Bose SoundSport Free Wireless headphones

    I love the quality of the sound for listening to music while working out and felt the comfort was very good since I have small ears and have had trouble finding a good fit for comfort in the past. They fit snug and do cause any discomfort.

    I did find that they were not perfect when using them to take a call from my cell phone as others complained that they could hear an echo in my voice.

    The application for connecting them to Bluetooth is easy to understand and quick to connect and I feel that the "Find My Buds" was a great feature.

    I would recommend the product.

    Excellent!

    Game changing device. Comfortable and excellent connection with the usual Bose sound quality.
    I’ve been using the Bose Soundsport Free for work outs and outdoor activities and the sound and comfort is just right.
    Very happy with it. Will definitely recommend it.

    Great True Wireless Headphones!!!

    I've currently had these earphones for about 3 weeks or so. I've had the opportunity to test them out pretty well. Depending on your ear type, they may or may not fit perfectly. One thing is for sure though, they sound great!!! They are probably the best sounding earphone out on the market currently. They sound great with all genres of music and you can optimize them with your devise eq to your liking. I primarily used these earphones with my iPhone with no complaints about the sound. Besides the fact that they stick out of your ears a bit far, my only complaint is that the sound doesn't sink with video media depending on what application you are using. For example, they are horrible with Youtube video but pretty descent with Netflix. They aren't perfect but they suffice with the Netflix program. Once they fix that issue, they will be next to perfect. The next issue is for Bose to come up with a flatter design that sits more flush to ones ear. Because of these two factors, I give these a 4 out of 5 stars. You be the judge.

    Solid Pair of Wireless Headphones!

    Intro:
    For this review, I will list several categories and remark upon each of them. I will then end with some closing thoughts. I hope you find this review to be helpful in your (possible) purchase!

    Sound quality:
    For Bose, the sound quality is on par with other audio devices they sell. The sound is rich, the bass is there (but not too over-powering), and the mid-range sounds pretty natural. Taking calls on the earbuds is an easy process and both sides of the phone call can hear each other with almost “crystal clear” quality.

    Noise cancelling:
    As one might expect with “true” wireless earbuds, the noise cancelling isn’t the greatest. While it is able to passively block out some noise, it is not on the level of other (non-true wireless) earbuds. Then again, to my knowledge, Bose does not market these to be noise cancelling. Thus, with that in mind, any level of (unintentional) noise cancelling is great. Compared to Apple’s Airpods, I would say that the Airpods are able to block out noise slightly better than the SoundSport Free.

    Bluetooth/Tech:
    The Bluetooth connection works great on the Bose SoundSport Free. The range is fairly good (on par with other wireless earbuds). The earbuds also can pair with an app that has the ability to control the basic functions.

    Form factor:
    The case itself is rather large but small enough to not be a nuisance. The case is very well built and includes a battery to charge the physical earbuds while you are on the go. I was able to charge my earbuds multiple times and overall, the Bose SoundSport free lasted around 5-7 days depending on the daily usage. Overall, the case is portable and lightweight enough to carry around virtually anywhere.

    Regarding the buds themselves, they are pretty large. They are pretty noticeable when one is actually wearing them and that may be a minus depending on what kind of person you are. One plus of their large size is that Bose was able to include a large battery, which means longer runtimes. Other than that, they are really comfortable and the signature Bose StayHear+ Sport tips are magnificent: they stay in while sitting, working out, running, etc. Speaking of working out, the SoundSport Free is water-resistant and getting sweaty on them is no problem: everything still functions normally. The in-line remote is a little hard to control but with use overtime, I feel like that should not be a huge problem.


    Conclusion:
    Overall, the Bose SoundSport Free is a solid package offering great sound quality in a portable package. While a tad larger than most true wireless earbuds, the battery life and the aforementioned sound quality more than make up for it. Coupled with the great battery life, comfortable ear tips and the case (with charging capability), this is a great buy for anyone desiring to get into wireless audio devices.

    Amazing Battery Life

    I've been using these headphones for about a month at this point and am loving them! The battery life is great, I never have to worry about it since when they are not in my ears they are in the charging case. Great sound and they stay in my ears well but they sometimes feel as if they are falling out even though they never have.

    YES YES YES

    If your looking at these headphones and considering buying them, stop right now, add them to your cart and pay whatever price they are asking, These are by far the best head phones I have tried for running. When you take the ear buds out of the self charging case they almost look like they will be to big, but they fit snug in your ear.The case stays charged for almost a week and thats with using them a few days a week fir a couple hours a day.They work fine with sweat dripping and all. The noise cancellation is awesome, a great way to zone out during a work out. these head phones truly are worth the price. Love these Bose. If I had to find a negative, you cant add music to the app for the headphones, I subscribe to apple music and they sync great with the apple music app, so it doesn't affect my use.

    Don't read old reviews!

    Make sure you are reading newer reviews for these headphones, as many of the issues that early adopters have been resolved via firmware updates. I have been using these for nearly 3-weeks and have yet to have any disconnect or latency issues at all! I primarily use the Bose SoundSport while running outside, and I have to say, they are exactly what I was hoping they would be. The battery life, sound quality, and fit within my ear are all incredible, and I love that a bit of ambient sound is let in so that I am able to be aware of my surroundings while running. I have historically had issues with ear buds staying in my ears, but I am glad to say that I have never had to worry about these slipping out while running! The case is very sturdy and just feels impressive. I really think these headphones are well worth the price-tag. You are definitely getting Bose quality with the SoundSport Free Headphones.

    Great Headphones

    I tried out the wireless headphones with my iphone. I used them at the gym both weightlifting and on the treadmill. The original ear guards were too small but they included several sizes. I adjusted to the larger size and they stayed in my ear. They seem to hang out quite far on the ear. The build quality is excellent and they come in a nice charging pod. They were very easy to sync with the app on the iphone. I would recommend if you are looking for a sport wireless headphone. I have used in the past the jbird and generic chinese ones, the problem is that most do not last. Sometimes I have headphone failures after one week due to sweat getting into the earpieces. The bose have shown no problems so far with damage caused from sweat. The headphones quality build shows as they do not scratch when dropped on the treadmill.

    Definitely worth the money

    These headphones seem to be great once I got them set up. The set up was time consuming and rather frustrating but once I got the software downloaded and them synced to my phone they have been amazing. I have very small ears and have had a horrible time finding ear buds that would stay in place. I am a runner and normally don't run with any music because I can't keep the earbuds in my ears. When I opened these I was concerned because they seem to be bulky but with the small ear pieces they stayed in place my whole run (dripping sweat and all). I also love that they charge while plugged into their case, I never have to worry about them being charged. I would have easily given these a 5 outta 5 if the set up wasn't so time consuming.

    Excellent Sound, Good Features

    These earbuds have very good sound at low and medium volume, and excellent sound at higher volumes. They’re comfortable, but be sure to insert them into your ears as Bose suggests for long-term comfort. Phone calls will only use the right earbud, and I found that audio would cut out frequently enough that I had to stop using the Bose earbuds. Perhaps a software update will fix that soon. These also feature Find My Earbuds to locate an earbud between the sofa cushions. Not perfect, but easy to recommend.

    AWESOME product

    I have put these ear buds to the test in every single kind of workout; HIIT, running (indoor and outdoor), weightlifting, and just sitting at my desk while working. The sound quality is awesome and they stay put in my ears. I have always been a huge Bose fan and these ear buds exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend them.

    My favorite running headphones!

    I've been using these Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Headphones 3 to 4 times per week for about a month now. I use them mainly for running but I love that you can also use them to answer phone calls. I am amazed how comfortable they are and they stay put throughout my entire run, unlike some other sport headphones I've had that would eventually come loose or fall out. It is seriously a big deal for me to not have to readjust these Bose headphones during my run, so I can just concentrate on the sport and enjoy my playlist. I've traveled with these and worn them in various types of weather, from rain to hot, humid, and cold. They are still working fantastic so I hope they will withstand the elements overtime.

    Pairing with my iphone was quick and easy each time, and I am happy with their battery life. So far, I've been charging them once a week or longer. The little storage case that it comes with can be used to charge the headphones, which is really convenient when I don't always have the charging cable with me. I'm so happy I got these Bose SoundSport Free wireless headphones. Bose products never cease to amaze me with their innovations and continued sound quality. You will love these!

    Amazing sound quality!

    I've had these Bose earbuds for several weeks, and I'm really enjoying them. The sound quality is what you would expect from Bose, even better because it's in your ear!

    I was a little concerned that they would not be secure for running. But they stay put and feel secure as you work out or run.

    To charge the earbuds, they fit in a small charging case and are held in place by magnets. Recharge the case as needed using the charging cord to a USB port. When not in use, keep the earbuds in the case to protect them and to have them charged for your next work out.

    I enjoy using this product and definitely recommend it.

    One of the best fitness earphones

    This is one of the best headphones I have tried. The sound quality is what Bose is all about. Sound is clear and balanced with decent bass. Battery lasted for around 12-15 hrs. The fit is good however it felt like it will come out of the ear but even with running and jumping it has never fallen from my ears. I take it regularly to gym and never faced any issues. Connectivity is good. The con I would say is with the voice call. You can only use the right earphones for taking calls. Overall a good wireless headphone. Totally worth the money.

    Quality sound and fit!

    I really enjoy these headphones! They fit well with minimal adjustments during activity, the charging case is a fantastic idea, and the sound is Bose-quality. I've worn them with great success during running, weight lifting, and playing basketball; no issues. Love these more than the connected/corded Bose SoundSport headphones, and those are still a high-quality product! Definitely recommended!

    Game Changer

    These headphones are amazing!!! It's incredible how much sound the tiny earbuds can produces. The sound quality is clear and powerful. It's the perfect combination of sound and size.

    I love that each earbud is individual and can be used on its own. It's perfect for the gym, running, travel, hikes, the office, etc... The battery life is also incredible. I go to the gym five times a week for an hour and the headphones last for a couple of weeks on one charge. The setup on this device is simple and quick. Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for wireless headphones.

    Perfect Headphones For The Gym

    Initially I was a bit concerned because these seem a bit bigger as they sit in the ear. I use these headphones every morning for my workouts. As far as sound quality goes, they are amazing! Not having to worry about cords getting tangled or the headphones being pulled out of my ear is a major plus. They hold a charge for longer than my workouts, and the charging case makes it so that I only have to charge them up every couple of days. I have used the app to find my headphones when I misplaced them in the car. The sound was a little too quiet while in the case, but outside of the case it is plenty loud to hear them in order to find them. They sync with my iPhone the moment I take them out of the case. I prefer to use my apple watch to change the volume during my workout since fidgeting with the smaller buttons on the headphones isn’t as easy. Overall they stay in my ears no matter the type of workout I’m doing, but my right headphone tends to slip during intense workouts but has never fallen out. These headphones hold true to the Bose name, especially the sound quality and design.
