Bose soundSport Free Review: Wireless Headphones
hey, everyone, I’m David trying to bring you guys the newest stuff in the market Bose just released their sound sport wireless earphones geared towards Fitness fans out there now they come in 2 colors aqua which I have here and then there’s that stuff all-black model I did personally pay for this at the retail price of one hundred and fifty dollars making these slightly cheaper than some of the premium models out there.
But we’ll see how these go though as always I’ll place my links in the article below click on my links and they will give you the most updated prices in real-time and if you decide to buy of course this will help support my site.
So without further ado, David and I’m here to help you make a purchase decision welcome everyone to another review going over the physical features.
first I do admit these are a bit bigger than what I anticipated but of course, looks are subjective now although there are audio ports exposed Bose claims these are to be water in sweat-resistant and for my testing spring water all over these.
the Bose sound sports still works perfectly fine now looking at the right earphone there’s your power button up top LEDs to indicate when this is fully charged or almost dead in regards to battery life and a Bluetooth connection indicator on the bottom there is a micro USB port for charging the sound sports and Bose is claiming up to six hours of use which is somewhat in the mid-range when you’re comparing with other sport your phones on the market at 50% vibe I was able to get 7 hours and 4 minutes worth of use.
Now moving on with the physical bill the left ear but doesn’t have any physical buttons or features but moving down the cord here it’s thick and feels very durable while still being very flexible tossing these into my bag without the included case they never tangled or under abuse they held up really well.
now there is an inline controller with volume up and down with a pause play and song skipping feature and this does work for both Apple and Android devices the only thing though the buttons are very firm compared to any other earphones I’ve tested also when pressing the buttons you do feel the buttons slide from side to side from time to time which was a bit unusual at first it’s not a deal-breaker.
But I do admit you do get used to it after your first use or two but something I wanted to point out.
now last the inline controller does come with NFC or near field communication built-in which is very handy tap your NFC compatible phone and the earphones pairs with your device automatically last you can use this as a headset for phone calls and testing this with several friends my voice is very clear it does pick up some background noise though.
But at least my voice didn’t sound far away or distorted it performs very well though.
now going into comfort both features they’re super soft ear tips called to stay here plus three ear tips are included from small-medium to large and of course, the fit will be subjective as everyone’s ears are a little bit different here but for the most part, they stayed in my ears very well here but not the perfect skier holds that I was looking for the stay here ear tips are not in your earphones they’re not snug inside that ear canal.
But it rests on the opening you can still hear your environments which are ideal for cyclists or runners to ensure that you may hear someone coming upon you or maybe here traffic around you they are very comfortable.
however during vigorous activities at least for my ears again the top ear wing would pop out sometimes and the earphones would not fall out though but I would periodically have to push that top ear wing-back and reviewing previous Bose products most people do find their general ear tips to work really well though.
so I would still give them a shot regarding wire noise when you are running the wires can bounce around or rub against or shirts but these sound sports do very well not carrying any noise into the earphones.
When music is going you don’t hear the wires bouncing around at all something to look into when you are looking for earphones in general and last regarding sound quality in BOCES fashion here they still provide a very nice clean audio signature it’s not loud or brash.
But a sound signature that is very easy to listen to even at loud violence you won’t have hearing fatigue after you’re done using them.
now Bose is claiming to have a dynamic volume optimized equalizer soothe sound characteristics would change as you adjust vine up and down I didn’t notice really much of a change but it all happens behind the scenes but in general here base is punchy fast and accurate it’s not a deep sub-bass it doesn’t Rumble like the powerbeats2 or has a bass booster signature like the jbl products.
if you prefer that more accurate and clean audio signature the bose performs well in that aspect regarding the mids it’s clear accurate once again it isn’t bright at all nor is it recessed or boxy it really performs right in the middle of the audio spectrum feeling unaltered but the highs are distortion-free and turn this up at much higher violence there’s noting or ear ringing I do admit though the top-end doesn’t sound as detailed though as.
I would have hoped top hats cymbal crashes and the likes we’re not as acute at louder vibes sensing there some roll-off from Bose to keep the audio signature safe from going overboard.
now regarding soundstage, there isn’t much there but I have noticed though most sport earphones I’ve reviewed so far they don’t provide much of a sounds tag anyways the only brand that does provide a very expansive experience has been j-bird and less regarding wireless range these work perfectly walked from one side of the house to the other and downstairs as well the signal never broke or degraded.
When going through several walls and the first-floor ceiling last both introduced their own app when they released the bose qc25 headphones and a sound sport here works with the same app just like the QC 35s experience there isn’t much there.
there’s a battery level indicator volume adjustment if you go into settings you can adjust the power downtime period when the earphones are not in use turn on or off the voice prompts and manage your parrot devices.
Other than that there’s no audio profiles there’s no app equalizer or a music player built-in so that’s everything on the new bose sound support wireless.
Here I really do like them and the audio signature is very clean the fit was good but not the greatest to me.
- Good build quality
- Very comfortable
- Good battery life
- Beautiful design
