  • Overview

    Ideal for demanding workouts, Bose® SoundSport® Free wireless headphones are completely free of wires and packed full of technology. Bose digital signal processing combines with volume-optimised EQ and a proprietary acoustic design to make your music sound clear, full and balanced at any volume. Some wireless headphones pop, crack and hiss from a weak wireless connection, but these earbuds are designed to play reliably and consistently. No matter if your phone is in your hand, your pocket or strapped to your arm. Or in your nearby gym bag.

    No worries about sweat, either. These earbuds are designed to keep rain and moisture out. Also no need to worry about losing an earbud. Bose StayHear+ Sport tips on each lightweight earbud stay comfortably and securely in place all workout long. And the Bose Connect app helps you track them if misplaced.

    When you’re done working out, the magnetised case also keeps the earbuds securely in place while they recharge. Off a single charge, the earbuds can play for up to five hours - long enough to power you through almost any workout. A fully charged case gives you two additional earbud charges - or up to 10 hours of battery life. Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing, and you also can use these headphones to take calls and access Siri on your iPhone.*

      Connectivity Issues Make These Next to Useless

      These could not maintain a steady connection to my phone or to my watch. On even short jogs, the left ear bud lost connectivity dozens of times, while the right These could not maintain a steady connection to my phone or to my watch. On even short jogs, the left ear bud lost connectivity dozens of times, while the right lost its connections several times. I found that i needed to hold my phone/watch near my chest and keep my head looking straight ahead to keep a connection. Any slight deviation caused the connection to be lost. I attempted to trouble shoot, installed the latest firmware, and still could not get these to work. Was very disappointed.

      Not ready for prime time

      Please do your research before buying. These wireless earbuds have 2 firmware that have not been resolved. 1. Sound vs video playback go out of sync using the Y Please do your research before buying. These wireless earbuds have 2 firmware that have not been resolved. 1. Sound vs video playback go out of sync using the YouTube mobile app. 2. The left earbud has intermittent drop outs (I.e. loss of sound). I took these back right away. These should have been show stoppers to postpone their launch. I’m not sure what Bose is thinking. Sound is great, but absolutely useless with these defects.

      AMAZING QUALITY

      AMAZING QUALITY. WORTH EVERY PENNY. So far: Worked perfectly streaming music on Amazon Music. Worked perfectly with music on your apple phone. Worked pe AMAZING QUALITY. WORTH EVERY PENNY. So far: Worked perfectly streaming music on Amazon Music. Worked perfectly with music on your apple phone. Worked perfectly with Music on your apple iPad. Worked perfectly with videos on YouTube. I have experienced absolutely ZERO ISSUES thus far with these ear buds. They are amazing. I did A TON of research prior to buying. Recommend purchasing directly through the Apple store because you have until January 8 to bring them back if you don’t like them(but you will LOVE them) and you can get all of your money back if you so desire(This is a LIMITED holiday special offer so act ASAP on this offer if considering these ear buds). If you buy through other stores then usually it is only a 30 day money back guarantee at best.

      Bose Soundsport Free Review 12-29-18

      I've had these for about 3 weeks so far. First of all the sound is amazing! As soon as I unboxed them there was a firmware update. I updated them and exper I've had these for about 3 weeks so far. First of all the sound is amazing! As soon as I unboxed them there was a firmware update. I updated them and experienced no connectivity issues. You can easily switch between devices by pushing the button on the left earbud. No lag time when watching my Apple movies, Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu. Youtube works fine on my iMac and Apple 4K TV but for some reason there's serious lag time when watching Youtube on my iPhone XS Max. As I said these sound amazing but they do let in ambient noise so they aren't the best for a really noisy gym or other noisy environments. They worked fine in the weight room but the ambient noise can be bad if you're on a treadmill or elliptical so you'll most likely have to crank them way up. I know that they're designed that way and some people might like this but I wish they would offer optional ear tips that provide better sound isolation for those that want that option. Also, these don't get as loud as my BeatsX so I have to crank them up a quite a bit more. The BeatsX have much better sound isolation but sound a bit flatter. Still though these are amazing buds if you can live with the above issues. One last thing is that I recommend that you keep them in the charging case when not in use. I had them in my pockets and lost one of them temporarily when running errands but was thankfully able to find it. The "find my buds" option didn't work as the earbud powered off. Plus, you have to have the Bose app open on you phone or it's pretty worthless. You can't buy just one earbud and have to buy a new pair at $130.00. Ouch!

      Great Sound, Horrible Battery

      I have owned these earbuds for a couple of weeks and really like the sound, fit, and portability. The one issue, and it is a big one. The battery drains when in I have owned these earbuds for a couple of weeks and really like the sound, fit, and portability. The one issue, and it is a big one. The battery drains when in the storage case in less than a week. I own multiple pairs of headphones, and all of them hold their charge a very long time. Both my beats headphones can go months without needing a charge, not these. When you go to grab them a week later, you’ll find they are dead. I was going to return them, but decided I liked them more than this annoying defect in engineering. Yes, defect! We are in 2018-2019, for a manufacturer to make earbuds that have to be continuously changed is a bad design through engineering an inferior product. I thought mine were defective until I looked up the issue online and found 100’s of people with the same complaints. Bose’s response is this is normal, yes if you designe and engineer it wrongly. Bose’s response is to compare it to a cell phone that constantly drains its battery. Nice try Bose, compare it with headphones and not a cell phone that has 100’s of apps refreshing, downloading, and is on all the time. When my earbuds are off and in its storage case, it should hold a charge longer than a few days. I have turned off find my buds, I guess it runs in the background. This is Bose’s fix. Again, poor design and engineering on the part of Bose. These are for listening primarily, and if your engineering intended for them to be a phone, act like a phone, they have failed. I just want to listen to them when I need them, not wait for them to recharge, then I can wear them. Manufacturers try all the time to make excuses, try making solutions to this design flaw. When we spend a lot of money for something, we just want it to work, period. This has class action written all over it. Their advertising for this product is flawed. How can we get two additional charges out of a case that doesn’t hold its charge? Maybe you workout 15 hours at a time and can use the 15 minute quick charge in a single day. I workout for an hour maybe two 4-5 times a week, but I don’t use them in my home gym, I use my HomePod. But, when I take to the streets, travel, or switch between headphones, I’d like to be able to grab my Bose and go. I can grab my mofi cans that I haven’t used in 6 months, and guess what Bose, I don’t need to recharge them. They have miraculously through proper engineering hold their charge. OkY, 6 months may be a stretch, but they can go months without recharging. Destining a product that needs to be recharged like a cell phone is just plain ignorant.

      BUYER BEWARE

      2 sets of headphones and $360 later still not working. Left earbud not connecting. I've wasted countless hours trying to turn off turn on, disconnect, reinstall 2 sets of headphones and $360 later still not working. Left earbud not connecting. I've wasted countless hours trying to turn off turn on, disconnect, reinstall, etc.....it's a very annoying and frustrating experience and BOSE should simply take the product off the shelf and return everyones money. It's clear that many people have this issue. Why on earth would ANYONE spend premium $$ for a clearly inferior product. I would recommend NOT buying BOSE anymore. About to leave on holidays and now no music. Thanks BOSE. Merry Christmas.
