Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones – Bright Orange – The perfect exercise companion

Perfect headphones if you exercise a lot. I use them in the gym for a 2 hour workout. You can sweat as much as you want knowing that this headphones will withstand the sweat. They also stick to your ears like glue. Not suitable for more than 3 hours use as they will need recharging.

High quality rich sound, fit is better than others i have used previously.

The bose soundsport are excellent and great for anyone on the go ether on the way to work or in the gym. Great sound and very easy to fit and are conftable. Here are the specifications for the Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones – Bright Orange:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Truly wireless for total freedom of movement
  • Packed full of technology that makes music sound clear and powerful
  • Earbuds are sweat and weather resistant (with an IPX4 rating) and come with 3 different pairs of Stay Hear+ Sport tips (in sizes S/M/L) that provide a comfortable and secure fit
  • Up to 5 hours of play time with each charge and an additional 10 hours with the charging case
  • Track lost earbuds with the Bose Connect app’s “Find My Buds” feature
  • Use the Bose Connect app to improve Bluetooth pairing and get the latest headphone firmware updates

Item arrived quickly and was amazon packaged very well. The bose packaging inside is excellent. I bought the midnight blue colour option. The charging case has a dual purpose of storing the items securely and charging the ear buds. It arrived with medium stayhear+ sport tips fitted and they fit my ears quite well. The package also has small and large stayhear+ sport tips if required. The sound quality is excellent as is the volume levels when i use them for cycling. I have had no problems with charge time. Price of item is a matter of opinion, i felt the cost was ok if you want something decent.

Faboulas sound, great comfort.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great for workouts, avoid if you want to watch youtube video’s
  • Will not work in hot temperatures FACT!
  • Can’t fault them

The fit is excellent for me. I use them for running and even on long, sweaty runs they don’t budge. They are very comfortable and i don’t notice they are there. I love the charging case and the sound quality is great. What i don’t like:the volume buttons on the right ear plug have very poor feedback and it takes several hard pushes to get the volume to adjustyoutube has a sync issue which as of may18 hasn’t been resolved. I don’t get this issue with my plantronics backbeat fit’s so this is a bose issue.

These have their plus points and their minus points. On the plus side, (importantly) the sound quality is great. The charging case is a nice solid little device. The earbuds are comfortable and are not the type that you need to jam way into your ear canal, but they still stay put and don’t feel at any risk of falling out. Battery life also seems good. On the minus side, the earbuds are pretty big but light. This gives them a slightly “non-premium” feel, although maybe i’m being unfair here as obviously they need to be light enough to stay in your ear. They are big though, and they stick out quite far when you’re wearing them. They kind of look a bit like frankenstein’s neckbolts – except sticking out of your ears. I also found the control buttons on the right earbud a bit unresponsive – they are a bit “squishy” and i found them hard to use.

What a great pair of headphones i just watched blade runner on my iphone and the bass is earth shattering these head phones are great brilliant app aswell awesome product well done bose handy battery case and so comfortable and hold in the ear so securely.

The link to both ear buds seems to drop out and only sound from one ear, charge doesn’t last very long.

Would order again if needed.

What a shame, these bose soundsport® free wireless headphones really did get my hopes up. I already own a superb pair of bose soundsport® wireless headphones that sound absolutely fantastic. As did these when i paired them with my samsung s8. Sadly when i eventually managed to pair them with my windows 10 tablet, i noticed a delay with lip syncing in movies. I then tried this with my android tablet with netflix and amazon prime, again a delay with syncing. It seems that there is a issue and an update may resolve this. Otherwise for portability, reliability, sound when listening to music, they are fantastic and probably the most comfortable earbuds i have worn, just let down by the fact they are no good with viewing media.

I don’t really trust headphones that aren’t attached in any way, as i’ve had so much experience with buds slipping out, but these headphones have converted me. Getting them in is a little more of a fiddle than with traditional headphones, but once they are in, they are rock solid. I haven’t had a single slippage despite regular jogging. They are so comfortable that i don’t mind wearing them all day and the charging box has meant that so far i haven’t been bothered by flat batteries when i want to listen to music. Conveniently, the app does track your headphones to avoid loosing them, but i have yet to need that feature. As others have mentioned the in-ear part of the bud comes in three sizes – large, medium and small. The medium fit straight out of the box both my boyfriend and me. I personally also like the fact that i can still hear the traffic and my jogging partner over the headphones. If you are looking for noise cancelling bose has better choices than this. The sound quality is what you can expect from bose and the price range.

Innovative design makes for a perfect fit. I’ve never been able to find in-ear headphones that sit comfortably and securely until i bought these.

Had the soundsport bluetooth before these & they have virtually the same sound signature to my ears. They feel great to wear, the only thing that irritated me about my soundsport bluetooth was the wire across my neck catching or dragging sometimes, not a major issue & had i not dropped them in a swimming pool would still be using them. But the truly wireless free version feel & sound great, the fact they’re always 100% charged because they charge every time you put them back in the case is another cool feature. All round over the moon with these for my purposes which are working out in my home gym, zwift, rowing & outdoor cycling.

The sound on bose is diamond but after 5min of them in my ear they started to get aiky. Plus i thought they were abit large for my ear.

The best headphones i have ever had.

I have been using these now in the gym for about a week and let me start off by saying that i really do love these. Totally recommend them and that’s why i have given them 4 stars as there is a little issue with them i will explain laterthe pairing was really easy, and they just worked great with my ipod nano device. The sound quality for me is awesome and even those these are not noise isolation they do a really good job. When i am in the gym and have the volume up on them i dont hear any of my surroundings. I am not a runner, so only use these for gym workouts and while weightlifting but they honestly are superb. What didnt i like about them?. The only gripe i have with these is they stick out a bit from the ear. This isnt a big problem until you do any sort of running. Soon as you start running with them there is a ‘bouncy’ feeling in the ear.

Fantastic sound, absolutely love them.

Great product, provided me with everything i could have possibly wanted from a product.

Great ear buds, could do with longer battery but due to size can’t complainquality sound.

I have seen a lot of comments about disconnection. I use these with an iphone x and they work a treat after firmware update. What i can confirm as a fact is this ( confirmed with many other users on the bose community forum. Connections will drop when used in direct sunlight as the headphones heat up a safety feature kicks in. Whatever bose say this is a fact and is totally repeatable on multiple headsets and confirmed by many customers. As a customer in the uk this is no big issue, but these were useless by the pool in italy last week in sunny 28 degree is plus temperatures. My original soundsport phones worked fine. I have confirmed with bose the temperature cut off but they say these work up to 50 degrees, which may be true in ambient heat, but even in sunshine at 28 degrees they can get too hot to touch and will disconnect. I have an open query with bose on this now,please consider before parting with your cash. All that said, work great for uk and in the gym.

    As some older reviews say there were some drop outs/ sync issues with videos. Update the firmware and all these niggles are fixedsolid sound, solid connection and great battery life. These are in my ears most of the evening – listening to podcasts etc and i love themdon’t be put off by the negative reviews, update the firmware before use using the official bose app and you wont be disappointed:).

        Occasional drop outs, but not terrible. The big problem is the lack of sound isolation. Whilst running outdoor, you hear the wind as much as the music. Useless on a plane or on a rumbling train. And because the tips are very unique, you can’t buy third party foam tips that offer proper isoltion.

      I primarily use these for music and video streaming and i have found the sound quality to be great and i have not experienced any of the audio sync issues that i have seen described in a couple of reviews. Yes the left ear will sometimes disconnect from the right, but this in my experience has only been near wifi signals (or devices activating wifi on initial startup) or walking through shop security barriers – so not random and is easily dealt with by the touch of one button. They are comfortable to wear and with the right size selection, noise cancelling is fairly effective in that background noise it blocked but you can hear someone speaking to you if they are close enough which i find quite useful.

    Amazing earphones, best i’ve ever had. Yes the left earphone occasionally goes but it’s not a big deal.

        I was looking forward to getting my hands on a pair of soundsport free, after having a pair of soundsports it seemed like the logical next step. Unfortunately the free version doesn’t have the same level of functionality as the soundsport. The free doesn’t allow you to be connected to multiple devices at the same time. When using the free for phone calls only the right bud works, which is quite annoying. The left bud disconnects sporadically which again is annoyingboth soundsports don’t have background cancellation when being used for phone calls, which i would expect from products in this price range and from bose in general. I’ve jumped straight to the negatives but there are plenty of positives- build quality is great- sound quality is great- bose customer service is great- connecting to devices is easy- controls work well- connection to siri and general voice control works well.

      Stays in your ears and provides good bose quality sound but is far from comfortable unlike the qc 35s. Not sure if it’s a matter of adjustment or they’re just not that comfortable. Connectivity is fine but having trouble with more than 3 sources connected. For the price you would expect perfection or near perfection which is why this is only 4 stars.

    I have to say these are the best sounding earphones i have ever heard. I took them into a b&o store to compare them against the beoplay e8’s and the bose earphones blew them away. The bass on these is superb, i like a good amount of bass and these did not let me down. No tinny-ness whatsoever, amazing sound. My only gripe is the design of these. Why they didn’t design them to sit more flush in your ear i don’t know?. They pertrude from your ear a fair bit, and i was visually conscious of them (but that may just be me)and although they didn’t fall out and are fairly secure, when running they do feel slightly bouncy (as another reviewew described) but that could just be the way i had them sat them in my ears. All in all, if you don’t mind these sticking out a tad then these are very good earphones.

    Ok so i purchased direct from bose but i cannot begin to tell you how good these headphones are. I have long time now been a big bose fan and have bose stereo speakers, a docking port, companion 3 pc speakers, and have always used bose on my ipod/iphone because they are brilliant, but even i have been taken aback by how good these headphones are. I have always been sceptical about how good wireless headphones could be, so have been slow to the party, but seriously wow. The dynamic range on these small wireless headphones is way better than my old bose phones. They connected up easily and i cannot begin to recommend highly enough. Ok so they are a lot of money, but if that’s your budget then don’t even give it a second thought. You won’t be disappointed.

    I own a set of bose qc35s which i use for commuting and in the office all day. They are the best headphones i have ever owned but i find large headphones completely unsuitable for the gym because, at best, they move around and, at worst, they can fall off. I previously used the bluetooth bose soundsport headphones (the original model with a wire between the buds) at the gym and was very happy with them. I run 10km on the treadmill most days and the wire around the neck was the only thing i was never totally comfortable with as it often bunched up on one side. I somehow managed to lose them on holiday and, when considering replacements, saw that the bose soundsport free model had been released. When i read that they were basically identical to the original soundsport but without the wire it was an easy decision. I was very worried by the many reviews here mentioning audio lag on youtube and connectivity issues causing the left bud to cut out. When i opened the headphones, i used the bose app on my iphone to update the firmware and have experienced absolutely no issues whatsoever. I can only imagine the people experiencing issues have not taken the time to update their firmware. In summary, i am completely satisfied with my purchase and thoroughly recommend the bose soundsport free headphones if you are looking for true wireless headphones.
