Bose SoundSport Free

 

Bose SoundSport Free review: Bose's first truly wireless headphones are designed for sport but a chunky design and fiddly controls mean these aren't perfect.

Secure fit ; Good sound quality ; Robust build ; Decent battery life

Chunky design ; Difficult-to-use buttons ; Large charging case

Bose’s first truly wireless earbuds don’t quite hit the mark, even if there’s a lot to like.

Bose SoundSport Free review

 

Bose's truly wireless in-ears are almost the perfect package.

Weighty, full-bodied sound ; Deep, powerful bass ; Even tonal balance

Unreliable wireless connection between earbuds

Impressive features and impressive sound to boot – we’d just like a more stable connection

Bose SoundSport Free review

 

Bose's truly wireless in-ears fall just short of sporting greatness...

Deep, powerful bass ; Nicely balanced and rounded sound ; Impressive battery life ; Find My Buds feature

Wireless connection between earbuds can be flaky

They'll wow you with their sound quality and features, but it’s hard to ignore the Frees' sometimes flaky connection

Bose SoundSport Free review: The best wire-free sports earphones by a mile

 

While they don't have some of the smart fitness features you get in the likes of the Lifebeam Vi or Jabra Elite Sport, the SoundSport Free are

Great sound ; Comfortable to wear for long periods ; Battery life is immense ; Nifty "find my earbuds" feature ; Solid connection

Design means the buds stick out quite a bit ; No customisable equaliser ; No heart-rate monitor ; Buttons are hard to press

While the Bose doesn't have some of the smart fitness features you get in the likes of the

Bose SoundSport Free True Wireless Earbuds review

 

Wireless earbuds built for quiet environments

Excellent, balanced sound ; Built for abuse ; Good battery life

Awful ambient noise isolation ; Earbuds fit loosely and stick out ; Comparatively expensive

The Bose SoundSport Free are an excellent sounding pair of wireless headphones with an ultra-reliable connection. They can an easily withstand the abuses of working out, however, their poor fit and open design will turn many casual listeners away. For...

Bose SoundSport Free review

 

Bose has done a good job with its first pair of truly wireless earbuds, but they're not as sporty as we expected. Check out the new SoundSport Free in-ear headphones.

Bose SoundSport Free review

 

Apple's AirPods may have dominated the totally wireless headphone market since their release but some compelling alternatives, including the Bose SoundSport Free, have hit the market in recent months.

Bose's SoundSport Free, a set of totally wireless earphones, offers richer sound than Apple's AirPods and a more secure fit. The buds are water-resistant and durable, battery life is decent and a charging case provides two extra charges on the go.

Fairly pricey. Some reports of audio syncing issues when watching videos. Buds stick out pretty far from your ears.

Better than the AirPods in some ways, the Bose SoundSport Free are among the best totally wireless headphones, although some small performance issues keep them from achieving a more exalted status.

Bose SoundSport Free review: A better-sounding alternative to Apple's AirPods

 

Great sound and impressive features, but these headphones aren't ideal for outdoor activities

Overall, the Bose SoundSport Free are decent earphones. They sound a lot better than Apple’s AirPods, battery life is pretty good and connectivity is solid. They’re also very friendly to use, and it's easy to switch between devices. All very positive...

Bose SoundSport Free review: truly wireless earbuds never sounded so good

 

But that comes at a cost in more ways than one

Fantastic sound ; Water resistant ; Rock solid connection

They struggle in loud environments ; Don’t always sync with video ; High price tag
