The bluetooth connection wizard is easy for set up. Off a single charge, the earbuds play for up to five hours—long enough to power you through almost any workout. 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. The battery drains when in the storage case in less than a week. The wing tips are grippy, flexible, and comfortable.
They fit snugly in my ear and I love them. The included accessories are a soft case with carabiner, cable clip, 30cm charging cable and of course the eartip size alternatives. Regardless of where you fall, you probably have a strong opinion on the matter. As I said, I do love the sound quality. I do intend to contact Bose about it and see if there's anything that can be done, but, that has been a bit of a disappointment given how well I take care of them. And the Bose earbuds do a good job of staying in your ear.
Over the years I frequently get asked what the best Bluetooth sports headphone is. The battery seems to drain a lot faster than expected. All in all, for the cost, because of the poor Stay-ness and total lack of sweat resistance, I wouldn't be able to justify purchasing these again after their end-of-life. I had this less than a year and the rubber of the earphones began to detach from the plastic frame, so the humidity can enter the earphones, it will be a matter of time for them to finish working. Sound is great, but absolutely useless with these defects. Bose is hands down the best brand for headphones. I updated them and exper I've had these for about 3 weeks so far.
Perfect as a sports headphone The three eartip sizes. The rubber coating near the earbuds have cracked and the wire is exposed. Unfortunately, I really could not get them to stay in my ears. So before the Jaybird X2s took over the world, I was using the wired Bose SoundSport headphones for exercise. I love these because they are wireless yet still have a cord connecting the two buds. You can easily manage all your Bluetooth connections and switch between devices when you want.
When we turned to face the phone and walked backwards, the Beats pulled further away from the Bose -- but let's be honest, this isn't how you'd actually walk. The headphone works decently as a headset for making cell-phone calls and has an auto-off feature to preserve battery life. Worked perfectly with videos on YouTube. It gets frustrating and tiresome not to be able to listen without the left bud cutting out. Bose is a lot like the Kardashian media empire: you either love it or hate it. Cons: Sound is delayed when playing youtube videos.
Bottom Line The SoundSport Free are a jack of all trades. The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. The latency can vary based on the device, operating system, apps, cloud based content, network infrastructure and headphones. Sound Quality The SoundSport Free sit perfectly in the sturdy charging case. And you can focus on reaching new heights in your workouts. These are for listening primarily, and if your engineering intended for them to be a phone, act like a phone, they have failed.
High-pitched frequencies resonate, as his fingers travel up and down the fretboard. Truly wireless headphones are subject to some latency between audio and video. The proprietary StayHear+ ear tips keep the earbuds secure without causing any irritation. Easier said then done, of course -- today's battery technology is holding back miniaturization efforts. The tips are comfortable and manage to maintain a very secure fit—essential for high-intensity workouts—despite feeling light and at times like they're barely there. I don't sleep on my back, so I can't do that with these because they're so bulky.
But Bose found a way to make it work. That said, the low end is noticeably boosted, bringing forward the bass lines in a pleasant fashion. You can easily switch between devices by pushing the button on the left earbud. As long as the right earbud and the device are within 9 m 30 ft of each other, the right earbud will play audio from the source device. The highs and mids are exaggerated too, but still reproduce an appealing sound.
