Bose® SoundSport® Free Wireless Headphones

Need some help?
  • 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.

      Audiophiles !!! These buds sound so d!'mned SEXY!

      March 17th 2019 ... They had a charge out the box but I plugged them in for 30 minutes while I sat in Barnes & Noble sipping my drink. I downloaded the Bose app March 17th 2019 ... They had a charge out the box but I plugged them in for 30 minutes while I sat in Barnes & Noble sipping my drink. I downloaded the Bose app onto my Xsmax. No issue, 30 seconds or less. Opened the app and opened the buds charger. It was so simple. The app and the phone did EVERYTHING!!! Now the Bose app ran/runs fine. However, I have a DENON EQ app loaded as well. Hahahahahahahaha ... There were no hiccups people! Everything meshed, WELL ! And as I sipped my drink, as I looked through the NYTimes, as I listened to Saint Saen's Dance Macabre, Rachmaninoff's 2nd Concerto, Jim Morrison's Maggie McGill and Spanish Caravan. . . I was blown away! I did watch the Game of Thrones trailer. No lag. (2) hours later no ear pain. Get these buds. They work ... WELL !!

      Fantastic!

I did a software/firmware update available through the Bose Connect app shortly after taking them out of the package but these have great range, great sound, and no problems with video sync on my iPad Pro 12.9” or my iPhone 6S Plus. I am a professional Musican and college professor and the sound on these is pretty darn good. You still get some ambient noise but not as much as you would think. It doesn’t take long to charge the ear buds and if you have them in the case and the case needs to be charged, you can plug the case into the wall and the ear buds will charge first and then the case which is a nice feature since the case can continue to charge even after the ear buds come out. This is a pretty solid option. I use them on my stationary bike to watch movies or while working around the house. It is true that the phone calls come through the right ear only but I can live with that. I have a set of Bose QC35 headphones I was using before this and the sound quality of these is better as is the range. I haven’t had any issues with the left ear bud fading out like some have mentioned but much of that has been dealt with by updating the software and firmware through the Bose Connect app.
