    I didn’t even realize these were brand new when I ordered them. I just needed new earbuds for working out, and Bose is my go-to audio brand, because every other brand I try will almost always have something I can’t stand about it.I first want to point out that I come from a very old pair of wired Bose earbuds that were in such bad shape that the wires were exposed just below the buds — not good when you’re sweating during a workout while wearing them! So I went shopping… I first found the previous model of true wireless Bose buds — the ones with the left bud cutting out issue. A quick tour of the Bose website led me to these instead.Unboxing was nice. Premium packaging for a premium product. Buds had about 60% charge upon unboxing — good enough to test them out.Biggest setup gripe: needing an app that requires location privileges and an account to use them. I generally prefer not to give away personal data just to use an expensive product. Bose, if you’re reading this — this is a serious issue for me, and I’d greatly appreciate not needing that account to use a product I paid $180 for.Calls: If you want to know how calls sound, don’t look at me. I don’t do calls on headphones, and it’s not a feature I care about. I bought these specifically for music playback.Audio: Typical Bose quality audio. Slightly less impressive than my old wired Bose buds, but that’s to be expected. Bluetooth isn’t the best standard for true high quality audio. But these have just enough bass (not punchy, so if you like heavy bass, you probably won’t like these), to not overwhelm everything else. Very balanced sound, overall.Connectivity: Just like my old Bose BT speaker, these connect fast and after several hours of continuous music playback, not a single blip or drop. Just perfect performance.Controls: I love the auto music pause when I pull the right bud out of my ear. That’s awesome. I almost wish it worked with both, as I tend to pull the left out more often than the right. I also love the double tap customizable action. I set it to check the battery level for now. It’s a nice added feature.Fit: Some people love the way Bose buds fit, others hate it. I’m in the love-it camp. I’ve been in love with it since my old wired buds became the only headphones I’d ever use. They sit in just the right place to give awesome sound without putting ridiculous pressure on your ear canal, while simultaneously becoming almost impossible to actually feel once in. If you can’t keep them in your ears, you’re wearing the wrong size of the 3 silicone parts (or you need one bigger or smaller than what they make, which is definitely possible). For the record, I use the smallest of the 3. When I put these in, I push them in relatively straight and then twist to lock them in place, tucking the silicone part under my ear fold last. Since I’ve worn the Bose style for a long time, it’s something that’s natural to me. If you’re new to it, it might take some getting used to. If all you know are the kind that shove into your ear canal, these will feel like they’re going to fall out. They won’t!The only thing I wish is for the charging case to support wireless charging. But I can’t complain about USB-C.I’ve only used these for a few hours so far, but they went through 2 workouts plus some actual work (I’m a jewelry artisan, and I actually wore these at my workbench while running my flex shaft, soldering, and other tasks. It’s a joy to not need to worry about wires!). I will update this review if anything changes, but based on my first 3-4 hours of use, they’re 5 stars. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

    there are a million options for bluetooth in ear headphones. these are the absolute best.ignore reviews that say it is missing this or that functionality. Why? because bose and sony sell other models with all of the functionality you could wish for! want noise cancelling? just buy that version!adding better controls, noise cancelling, all the stuff these don’t have costs more and makes the products bigger and the cases bigger and brings a ton of issues of their own. with noise-cancelling earbuds you’ll hear a wind noise etc or it won’t work right.Personally I only care about sound quality and comfort, and these are the perfect balance. they feel great in your ears, so much so that you can wear them all day.the soft fins make it so it is really hard for them to come out accidentally.bluetooth connection is PERFECT not only that the buds know when you take them out and disconnect.I read a critical review that hinged on having to have the case to reconnect. I’ve had this experience only if I fumble around with them and put them in and out of the case really quickly. the big complaint was that they were running without the case and couldn’t re-link it. this seems silly to me since the case is so small it is not a big issue to carry it if you feel like it. also the connection / reconnection thing works totally flawlessly.the battery life is amazing! the reviews and description don’t give a good sense of how great it is. the headphones yes have 5-8 hour battery life, but the case also has a battery, so when you set them in the phones recharge. this creates kind of a loop so that the phones charge off the case constantly. I never notice the battery going down and I have to charge the case something like once a week. they wouldn’t say that in the description but it is something like 7 days of continuous use!Personally I think noise cancelling in in-ear headphones is kind of stupid. It can’t be as good, uses more power, and do you really want that in a sport earphone? I like to be a little bit aware when I’m running so I can hear cars. having it in your ear blocks a ton of sound anyway.the silicon tips are reason enough to buy these. they have a wide flange so they aren’t intrusively stuck deep into your ears. in-ear always grosses me out because they collect earwax but since these rest on a wider surface they don’t go far into the ear canal and make a soft seal so you don’t have that problem. the wingtips are silky smooth and won’t hurt your ears at all. If you like to listen to music while you work or work out these are perfect. plus they are waterproof and discreet. I love wearing just one and listening to podcasts, it is totally hidden by my hair and makes it way easier to talk on the phone.seriously don’t listen to people complaining about these and read the complaints carefully. do you really want noise cancelling and phone controls on both buds? go ahead and buy that model. It is way bigger, not waterproof, and noise cancelling is annoying. If you want the perfect earbud for working out and daily use you found it.

    Presentation of the box is a straight forward dive in. What is in the Box? The manuals and USB type C three inch cable. Different size eartips small, medium and large. I am 5″9 mediums fit me the best. When I put in the earbuds for the first time a mythemic symphony welcomes you to its orchestra. These Bose Sport Earbuds sound great. The audio levels are dynamically balanced very well there is noticeable bass just enough of it to enjoy my music. I typically listen artists such as Sam Smith, Ha Anh Tuan, My Tam and Dan+ Shay. All music continued to impress the fidelity that each track had. I currently havc Samsung Icon X, Sony WI-SP800N, Jaybird Vista and the Bose Sport Earbuds sound a lot better than the other brands. I always loved the Jaybird Vista for its comfortable wingtips, I can say that these Bose Sport Earbuds stay in my ear when I am doing backflips.The Pros: I can use either earbud and the music will continue to play. Battery life is really good I will update on this on how many hours on a single charge before needing to recharge in the dock. Cons: I cannot get the double tap to play and pause properly. It sometimes work and most of the time it does nothing. My two mobile phones that I use are Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact and Iphone XR, both devices had this same issue. Maybe a software is in the works to fix this.

    These fit in my ear perfectly and stay there in running. The sound quality is good for what it is, and one of the best among true wireless earbuds. Sound stage is okay, highs are pretty good, for bass I wouldn’t want a bit more than what it already has. I also used these to make phone calls, and sound quality on the other end was also good.My main use: working out, including running.Features I need: staying in ear while moving, stable connection, quality mic for phone callFeatures I don’t need: ANC (bad for running), complex touch control (tried Sennheiser True Wireless and it was bad)What do I already have: Jabra 75t, Shure 845 with M2BT1, a few other wired big/small headphones, etcI was worried reading other early reviews, but I’m so relieved after getting mine. People compare with Jabra 75t and complain about these. I have both and on the contrary totally prefer Bose. Sound is more open and clear. Jabra is not bad but the sound is too closed and gives an even smaller sound stage. Jabra don’t stay in my ears despite I have a few different foam eartips to try on. For bass, I can say these have the signature Bose kind of bass, deep but not heavy. It touches the low frequency a bit but does not not go boom. I personally prefer this though others may want more bass. Overall, these are better than Jabra in every aspect for me. They don’t sound as nice as my Shure, but they are for different purposes.

    Ordered these headphones two months ago when they released. I’m a pretty serious cyclist and I have used these nearly daily for my rides, which last anywhere from two to six hours. I also live in a tropical part of the US, so I tend to sweat a lot.Before these earbuds, I was using Shure wired earbuds for my rides. Those earbuds were not necessarily meant for my type of training, especially when I sweat as much as I do when I ride. I landed on the Bose SoundSports for their proposed protection from sweat and their earbud design. I have used Bose SoundSports a couple of generations ago and I always preferred their emphasis on fitting the concha of the ear as opposed to the traditional inner ear canal fit.Pros -* The fit is quite comfortable for me. I cannot stand traditional IEMs for their extremely uncomfortable fit (just my opinion), especially if I plan on using them for several hours straight. The size earbud I chose is close to the original SoundSports I used four years ago. After a couple of rides, I could hardly feel them. The tight fit also prevents any wiggle room or potential for falling out, so when I’m in the drops or sprinting I’m not concerned at all about these running away.* They are not completely sound-proof, which is great for me when I need to listen to traffic and other people while riding. This means I can start a ride wearing these and not have to take them off other than to talk to people and to take breaks.* The automation is really useful actually. Automatically detecting when the right earbud has left my ear to pause music, then detecting when I put it back on to resume music is probably my favorite of this aspect. Answering calls by putting on the earbud is okay too, but in reality by the time you open the case and put on the earbud (plus the time it takes to connect to your device) your incoming call has probably already ended. But, going back to the first bit of automation, there’s honestly no better feeling than riding up to a friend, taking out the right earbud, and stopping your music with little to no effort. I’m sure other earbuds do this too, but I’m new to the true wireless scene.* The touch controls make riding without pulling out your phone an easy feat. The option to skip tracks with a double-tap on the left bud, play/pause with a double tap on the right bud, and now a swipe up or down to adjust the volume all help me keep my attention on the road.* The call quality is amazing, according to everyone I call while wearing these. I speak softly and mumble sometimes out of habit, but these earbuds adjust and pick up even the softest of rumblings I might mutter. They also amplify my voice enough to be heard by everyone involved in a call, thus improving my ability to articulate points beyond belief. These earbuds have made it into my daily carry because of this.* So far, these have been completely impervious to sweat. I’m almost afraid that I’m going to break them in time because since buying them two months ago I have not had a need to clean them in any way (besides the actual rubber earbuds). Hopefully, these will continue to resist all the sweat I throw at them (which is a lot considering that I wear jawbreaker glasses and have helmet straps pooling sweat around my ear).* The battery life is strong and perfect for my use. Since my typical training ride lasts anywhere from 1:45 to 2 hours, I never have to worry about battery life. Even during my extra long rides, I can very easily take a break from my music, let them charge for 30 or so minutes, and continue my ride without care for battery life at all.In-betweeners -* The sound quality is a bit more trebly than the Shure earbuds I used. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing for me. I definitely don’t mind more or less bass than usual. Some people might choose against these for this reason.* Being a Bluetooth device, the connection between the earbuds and your device cannot always be perfect. I went from using wired to wireless and I had to learn this the hard way. I believe it’s a fact of life for me now, but this is something that will only get better with time (I hope). Intermittently, my music will cut in and out as if I’m getting a call, then resume as normal. My phone also seems to be the culprit with a lot of other Bluetooth issues. Using IP voice comm apps like Teams or Discord will cause the microphone to produce this “shrill noise”. I can work around this by using those apps on my work phone instead, so I definitely don’t blame the earbuds at all for this. Otherwise, the call quality is excellent.* These are very reliant on the Bose app. Because I am just getting into the latest generation of Bose products, I was really unaware of this aspect before buying the earbuds. Not saying this would’ve deterred me, but it does make joining the product to other devices a little more complicated. It’s definitely possible to connect these earbuds to your phone without the Bose app, but doing so makes you lose out on all of the extra functionality and the earbuds play at a much lower volume than they’re capable of with the Bose app.Cons-* Taking calls with these earbuds while riding a bike is not possible. The wind blasting into the microphones renders them completely useless during calls, so every call I get (depending on the urgency) will require me to pull over and take a break. This happens at speeds as low as 10-15 mph, so really these cannot function for calls whatsoever while riding a bike.* While I praised the fit initially, in the beginning, I did have issues finding the perfect size earbud for me. The type of earbud has changed from the earlier generations of Bose SoundSports to now, so I did have a hard time adapting to the different fit. My ears were a bit sore in the beginning, but, as I said before, I eventually adapted and now I can hardly tell I’m wearing them.There’s honestly not a whole lot more I can say about these earbuds. This is all just off the top of my head… All in all, these earbuds have out-preformed in almost every way I expected. I bought them really only to listen to music on my rides without being burdened with a wire, and now I can’t imagine not using them daily for calls and such.

    I have been rocking the $30 wireless earbuds with the little ear socket “hoops” (these are the only type that will stay in my ears while doing strenuous, sweaty activities (cycling, mowing lawn, gym, etc.)) I was kinda fed up with having to buy a new pair about every 6-8 months due to normal wear and tear. Eventually something stopped working or charging. I decided to step up to these Bose Sport buds, and man, they are worth the investment. The sound quality is outstanding (for this type up headphone), they stay in my ears, look nice, the app/pairing to the phone is easy and not frustrating like some Bluetooth headphones. For the first time I actually have to lower the volume a few notches because the maximum setting is so loud. The bass is great. I splurged and bought the Amazon extended warranty which I feel is a worthwhile investment considering 2 years if there is a problem, I can make a claim and get a new pair. These buds plus extended warranty > multiple pairs of cheap buds. I don’t write reviews often but have been so pleased with the buds, I figured I would share my experience with anyone who is considering the expensive upgrade from the cheap wireless buds. DO IT!

    After reading all the reviews, some are no longer true possibly because of software updates and because of user misunderstanding during setup. So one at a time. Photos show the two cases, the 2021 ‘Sport’ earbud, my former 2018 Bose SoundSport,’ and the 2021 ‘Sport’ at another angle.The newer Sport buds 33% lighter and much closer to the ear, They do not fall out when doing burpees (look it up), running and sit-ups. I can adjust volume easily, and play a song, forward or back as I program in the app, start or stop the music with a double tapWhen setting up the Bose Music app, there is a CHOICE to connect access to contacts and email, and I said no. They do not require that as someone suggested. And I found, you don’t even need the app, just use bluetooth setup on Samsung AndroidThe new case is 38% lighter and it’s smaller. I chose the light color because when working the the yard or hiking, the older SoundSport bud has popped off my ear and was hard to find since it was dark black. So color was not a fashion choice as much as a ‘where is it?’ choice.Sound seems pretty much the same new and old, I mean, I liked it and I still do like the sound. One day I hopped in my car, stopped the earbuds for driving and bluetooth connected to my car. What a disappointment! I thought my Prius sound was fine until I heard the comparison with the Bose earbuds. Bose sound is the reason to buy.And why get new buds? The older SoundSports were difficult to adjust sound and pause music. They were easily knocked off by hair or running because of their heavier weight and they stuck out too far..

    Bose earbuds are the only ones I’ve ever found comfortable enough to leave in my ears for longer than a few minutes. And I mean, I wear headphones & earbuds for 4-5 straight hours sometimes. The flexible fin/wing is ideal to get the fit right.I almost didn’t buy these, because so many reviewers (and the description page) said you can’t adjust the volume on the earbuds themselves. That is no longer correct! Idk if there was a software update or what, but I DID change my settings within the Bose Music App, and now I can adjust volume by swiping up or down on the right earbud. Piece of cake.Sound quality is sooooo much better on these than my cheapo versions. Worth the cost. My Bose wired earbuds are at least 8 years old, and still work perfectly.HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    This is my second purchase of Bose Sport Earbuds. I left my last pair on a plane. I tried to find replacements for them…..Airpods second generation and pro…(since I own all apple products). Both fall out of my ears when I run or sweat. I have bought 3 different silicone earbuds to keep them in my ears with no luck. I guess i have a small ear canal!!! Finally I caved in and purchased the Bose Soundsport again. I received my new earbuds and went for a run. They stayed put and sounded great! Wish I did not spend money on a product that I hoped would work and stayed with something that I knew would. If you have a small ear canal stick with these!
