  • 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.

      Not ready for prime time

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.

      Excellent wireless earbuds

      It’s pretty silly at this point that so many reviews (pretty much all the negative ones) are complaints about erratic connectivity. I got mine around May ‘18 an It’s pretty silly at this point that so many reviews (pretty much all the negative ones) are complaints about erratic connectivity. I got mine around May ‘18 and tried them without running the recent update from Bose that was specifically intended to address this problem and, sure enough, I had the same experience that all the complaints described. Then I ran the update and since then the buds work perfectly without a single instance of losing a connection in either one or both buds, unless you walk so far away that you just wind up out of the otherwise impressive range. As far as sound and comfort, 5 stars. The sound is almost if not as good as the top of the line QC wired series, but without the active noise cancellation which isn’t desirable for working out - running, biking, etc. With the available update from early ‘18 and the probability that recently shipped buds come pre-corrected, Bose SoundSport Free Wireless is simply another great product from Bose and, IMO, a good value as well. P.S., almost needless to say, the comfort and simplicity of finding the best fit is a breeze. Only thing left is for Bose to offer these in a noise canceling version, as the current top of the line in-ear model just doesn’t cut it with that neck harness. But I’m sure Bose already knows that..

      Bose FTW

      I would’ve happily bought the AirPods but my ears are the type where my EarPods constantly fall out. There are plastic adapters you can get to fix this problem I would’ve happily bought the AirPods but my ears are the type where my EarPods constantly fall out. There are plastic adapters you can get to fix this problem, but you lose much of the AirPod functionality if you do. Still wanting wireless but something more secure and with good sound quality, I opted to try the Soundsport Free. I’ve loved these since I bought them. The sound quality is great and the syncing process is a pretty simple setup. Yes some podcasts only play in one ear and yes you have to download the Bose Connect app, but these are minor inconveniences as far as I’m concerned. I hope AirPods eventually comes up with a more secure design, but for now I’m happy with these.
