    Not the Bose standard

    I bought this product in February (I know, awhile ago), so I do not know if something has changed since then, but it did not work for me at all. I have a few regular Bose earphones and they all work great so I wanted to try this wireless model. Immediately after I put it in my ears and started walking, the left one dropped out and would not start again until I reset it. It kept happening over the next two days so I thought it is just a faulty pair (it happens) so I exchanged it for a new one. The same thing kept happening and I noticed I was avoiding using them so I returned them and asked for my money back (which Apple people had done nicely).

    I really like Bose and I really need a pair of sport wireless earphones so I am hoping that you guys will make something like this soon. Just, please, first make sure it works.

    Same experience as the others

    Luckily I got these for free since Apple was trying to make up for a bad in-store experience. They worked really well for the first few months. Eventually the left bud would drop out, and I figured it was mainly because I was just listening to a spoken word podcast (as opposed to music). Now, they flat out shut off completely. Oddly, this mainly happens when I walk my dog around my apartment building; they are extremely reliable when I go running or am at the gym. These reviews and the Bose message boards show that this is extremely common. Buyer beware.

    Amazing Sound fit not so amazing

    Bought these and with all bose products I loved them. Sound is just amazing and not a bad price. B&O has a similar pair but for $100 more. The only issue I have with these is the fit. They just were not comfortable for me. I tried all 3 sizes of the changeable ear pieces and still could not get them to feel right. I also did not like the way the looked on. Very bulky so those things made me return them.

    Great Earphones by Bose

    These new Bose earphones sound wonderful. The bluetooth connection wizard is easy for set up. It is quite convenient that the earphones contain a "Find my Earbuds" feature similar to "Find my iPhone" in case you lose one of the devices. I am overall very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a quality waterproof music product.

    Nice but staying connected is a problem

    First, I would say these are real great buds when it comes to the quality of the sound. My problem is, that I'm on my 3rd pair after sending the first and second set back because of the left ear bud kept cutting out and coming back in. If I turned my head to the right to look at something, the left one cut out and came back in. I've downloaded all current updates so that's not the problem. The pair I currently have now are about 2 weeks old and have done the same thing but maybe not as often as the first 2 pairs. It gets frustrating and tiresome not to be able to listen without the left bud cutting out. I do not jog. I just walk in the neighborhood. Don't know what else to do. After 3 pairs, one ought to have one that works fine. Probably my last purchase of Bose Earbuds. My son's Apple wireless earbuds are working perfect. These are too expensive to have to put up with this constant problem. If they didn't cut out I would be very very please with them. As I said, I do love the sound quality.

    Using Bose

    I got the SoundSport about a month ago, the case has an amazing texture to it. The case can hold a long charge, and it’s nice that when you put the earbud in the case it keeps it charged. I think that the earbuds have amazing sound quality if the song has a lot of bass in it the Bose give a really good crisp bass. I think they stick out a little too far, but for how much is packed into it I think it’s fine. Though sometimes the signal can get a little out of wack even though my phone it either in my pocket or on a table, But again it has so much packed into it that I’m fine with it

    Extremely Comfortable Wireless Bluetooth Headphones!

    When I first received the Bose SoundSport Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, I was very impressed & pleased with the design & size of the neat charging case & the earphones themselves. However it did take me a few moments to figure out how to sync them & fit them in my ear properly. It's nice that the case has R & L indicators for which goes in what ear. The noise cancelling works wonderfully - I couldn't hear anything while listening to music. I did have some issues with connection/interference where occasionally one would cut out momentarily for no apparent reason when I wasn't even far from my phone (which is what they were connected through. Even after troubleshooting there was no clear explanation for why it occurred, but it wasn't a chronic or frequent enough problem to change my opinion of them. Overall they're great wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones & I would definitely recommend them!

    Cordless!

    I really like these headphones! Great quality and awesome fit! Headphones don't stay in my ears typically and I haven't had any issues with these. The only con is that the left headphone's bluetooth randomly loses connection.

    Excellent set of wireless headphones

    The Bose SoundSport Free headphones are an excellent set of headphones that have both the sound quality and build quality I would expect from a premium product. I have replaced my daily use wired headphones with these, as they provide the quality sound, volume, and comfort that I need for a product that I intend to use often, for extended periods of time. They are a joy to wear while running and biking, as well as listening to music around the office or home. Overall, this is the best pair of Bluetooth 'in-ear' headphones I have ever used.

    Pros:
    No wires
    Excellent sound quality
    Can wear only one at a time if you need to
    Very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time
    Fit is excellent and remains snug while doing sports or casual wear
    Great battery life
    Solid build quality
    Convenient charging case with LED power life indicators
    Bluetooth pairing works great when using a single device
    Bluetooth range is above average

    Cons:
    Somewhat large (appearance) but does not affect functionality
    Buttons can be a little hard to press, but I'm glad they are not cheap feeling
    Bluetooth pairing can be somewhat painful when trying to switch between multiple devices

    Great addition to the SoundSport family

    I believe these are the best yet of the Bose family in-ear headphones. They are comfortable to wear and have a solid fit, offering good noise isolation. Stable enough for high activity levels. I enjoy the cord free upgrade. The sound is crisp and clean with great tones for the relative small size. The charging case is well thought out, and I've even experimented with the functionality of the lost earpiece option. Your app will tell you the last location it was connected, and when in range again will start beeping louder and louder until found.

    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.
