    High Price even though you get a High Quality Product

All you need to know 

You can buy Bose Soundsport in the colors black and aqua. They come in two sizes with a micro USB charger and a little Bose bag to keep them safe. It's a fair price when you think about what you’ll get out of it, but for some people, it's still a lot of money. If you are looking for something cheaper that still are high quality take a look at the Treblab XR500. I’ll recommend these beauties to everyone who’s addicted to the combination of sport, fitness and an outstanding pair of headphones!

Our final verdict

It's not difficult to admit that Bose SoundSport Wireless earbuds are a safe bet! The headphones are beautifully designed and have an outstanding sound quality. Like that isn't enough, the StayHear tips are making sure that the headphones will stay in place and also makes them ideal for sports. 

Bose's headphones are not cheap though. Bose is a 'hyped' brand, and overtime you buy a product from a brand like Bose, you pay a lot for the logo and not only the quality. However, even though they have a high price, they are worth it in my opinion. If you are a serious athlete and you can afford the SoundSport headphones. Just go and do it, you won't regret it. 

Full Review


So many people say that these in-ear sports headphones are the best on the market. Of course, we had to test them for ourselves to see if we agree to this. After we've done this review, I must admit that I agree with them about being in the top league. These In-Ear headphones are one of the best Bluetooth sports earbuds on the market.


The first time I took a glance at Bose SoundSport, I fell in love with the design straight away. There's something about the looks of these earbuds that just charms its way into my heart. I know it sounds cheesy, but it's the honest truth. The earbuds themselves are of course bigger than the regular NON-wired SoundSport earbuds. I'm saying "of course," because they are wireless and therefore need to contain both a battery and Bluetooth+NFC technology within the earbuds. But even though they are a bit protruding, the earbuds have a stylish and smooth design. The earphones come in four colors; Black, Aqua, Citron and Power Red. Cool name- and color choices they have made.
On the right earbud, you have a light indicator for the Bluetooth signal and also one for the battery life. On the top of the earbud, you'll find the power button.

The cord between the earplugs is meant to go behind your neck to avoid it bouncing up and down in front of your face while moving around. That also gives you the freedom of taking the earbuds out and let them hang on your shoulders, pretty smart and straightforward.

A secure fit with StayHear tips by Bose 

Bose has developed a secure way to keep your earplugs in your ear while running. It’s called StayHear tips, and they come in different sizes. Bose is an innovative company, and they continually offer some new outstanding gadget or feature to their customers. The SteayHear tips are just one of the innovative things they have invented.

The tips are made of a soft silicone material and can be changed to another size if you need to. StayHear tips will make sure they lock in your ears securely. They impressed me the first time I tried them! When you're out running or killing yourself with burpees in your local box, the StayHear tips will stay put in your ears. If you're more into earhooks on your headphones, take a look at our review of the Powerbeats 2 Wireless.

I’ve been going through many headphones, and most of them won’t stay in my ears when I am working out or running. Especially CrossFit is one of the more challenging sports to match with in-ear headphones. But to my surprise, the SoundSports managed to do the job without problems. Thanks to the StayHear tips and the fact that the earbuds are wireless.

Sound Quality 

First of all, let’s look at the sound quality in these headphones. Bose has given the SoundSport a clear and incredibly deep sound that you’ll notice straight away. There’s no active noise cancellation in the earplugs, so if you’re running next to a highway or a construction site, you will hear the sounds around you. And don't get that wrong, that's only a good thing. Studies show that the number of pedestrians who have been involved in an accident while wearing their headphones has tripled over six years. Read more about the study here. Overall, I would without a doubt say that the sound quality in these wireless headphones is way above average.


How long will the wireless earbuds last me?

If you’re the type of person that practices sport and fitness daily, you’ll probably wear these out in approximately two years. It’s difficult to find a pair of wireless headphones that will last forever. If you take care of them, they’ll without a doubt last at least a couple of years.

Connection with Bluetooth & NFC

Bose SoundSport is wireless and has an insanely easy to use Bluetooth and NFC pairing system integrated. Make sure the Bluetooth on your phone is turned on, press the power button on the right earbud, and you’re connected. Bose has designed their wireless SoundSport headphones to be both sweat and weather-proof. It's a perfect pair of headphones for sport and fitness.
