  • 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-optimized 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 magnetized 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.

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.

      Good sound quality, but it has a few issues

The cons, tricky to pair and it wasn't a I had high hopes but ended up returning them. The sound quality and the fact that they stay on all the time are a plus. The cons, tricky to pair and it wasn't as simple as any other Bluetooth headsets. There are a lot of complaints from users about the same issues. The instructions mention that turning them off is as simple as pressing a button for 3 seconds until you hear a signal. Not quite. As soon as the button is pressed, it disconnects from the device/smartphone and it immediately enters on pairing mode. The only way to turn them off is by placing them in their case. what if I just want to put them in my pocket or bag? During calls or other notifications, the sound comes out only from the right headphone. I really didn't like that. The battery seems to drain a lot faster than expected. It drops about 20% for every hour used. However, from one use to another it dropped 30%. If I use them to go to the gym in the morning and for something else during the rest of the day, I would have to charge them daily to ensure that they don't run out of battery from one day to another, like it happened already.

      Poor Bluetooth connection

      Bose have a real winner here when it comes to sound quality, however that is not one bit good to anyone when you can’t stay connected long enough to use them. Bose have a real winner here when it comes to sound quality, however that is not one bit good to anyone when you can’t stay connected long enough to use them. I use these on an iPhone 6s and via an Apple series 3 celular watch. The watch is useles and drops connection every 15 seconds but only when used outside for some reason, if I use on watch indoors they are great. As for the iPhone connection this also has many dropouts but not as may as watch. I have been able to stop most of the dropouts on the iPhone by placing the watch in my right pocket closer to the right bud, this seems to stop disconnection on the phone anyway. If these buds where a cheap device I would not worry and accept that you get what you pay for, however, anyone that has bought these would know they are far from cheap. If Bose wants to compeat in this wireless Bluetooth market they need to do a lot more work on connectity. I’m sorry to say I have gone back to my Apple earbuds which is a shame as the Bose does have much better sound, but at least I’m now listing to music uninterrupted.

      Great earphones, Great sound

      I bought’em two months ago and so far I lovem. Pros: Great sound . Don’t fall that easy from your ear (great for running). Amazing battery live (about 4 I bought’em two months ago and so far I lovem. Pros: Great sound . Don’t fall that easy from your ear (great for running). Amazing battery live (about 4 or 5 hours) . Quick charge . Cons: Sound is delayed when playing youtube videos .( I don’t mind it, but some people do) Bulky (they are a little big). Sometimes the left bud disconnects from the right one.(rarely).. P.s bose keeps releasing firmware updates to address some of the issues.
