The new SoundSport Free are designed to work with devices up to 30-feet away, something that has plagued certain releases in this category. There’s not many details available in the press release about how this technology works, but Bose claims to have solved any potential issues here. Bose rates each headset for five-hours of use per charge with the carrying case adding an additional ten-hours of playback. Aside from weighing 0.35-ounces, the earbud measures at 1.1-inch high x 1.2-inches deep. An IPX4 rating delivers water and sweat-resistance while exercising. Available in black or midnight blue models, the in-ear SoundSport Free earphones come with a charging case that houses two separate earpieces, each with removable ear tips and fins.
Get clear, powerful sound from our first truly wireless in-ear headphones. They’re engineered to stay in place, and stay comfortable. We packed them full of technologies so you can push your workout to the next level.
When it came to the tech inside these earbuds, we focused on every little detail—from tuning the circuits for improved sound to tweaking the antenna position for maximum Bluetooth® signal strength. The result? Headphones that play consistently and clearly whether your phone is in your hand, in your pocket, strapped to your arm or sitting on top of the treadmill … and there’s never a wire in sight.
In ears that stand out, but stay put
These headphones have an unmatched combination of comfort and stability. That’s because we engineered the nozzle of our StayHear+ Sport tips to spread contact evenly around the inside of your ear, while the fin conforms naturally to the shape of the upper ridge of your ear. They won’t fall out, but they will stay comfortable. And you can focus on reaching new heights in your workouts.
A better athletic performance takes years of effort. The same is true with engineering the performance of headphones. And we’ve been working on it for decades. The volume-optimized EQ and Bose digital signal processing make music sound full and balanced at any volume. No matter how crowded the gym is, your workout playlist will keep you energized.
Sweat. Without sweating it.
Water and headphones typically don’t play nice together. But we found a way to make it work. By using a water-repellent mesh in the open ports, we can keep what’s inside dry and fully functional. These earbuds aren’t afraid of sweat or rain—and now a little weather can’t be an excuse to skip a workout.
Off a single charge, the earbuds play for up to five hours—long enough to power you through almost any workout. And when you’re done, place them in their case to recover. It’ll keep them protected, and provides two additional full charges (or up to 10 hours of battery life) to keep them ready to go again. Plus, a quick 15-minute charge will give you 45 minutes of battery.
