The discussion about which one is better between wired or wireless headphones never seem to end. Personal preferences differ, but it is good news when many manufacturers decide to join in the very potential “wireless market”. Bose is not an exception with these sold-out Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones, which have taken the world by storm. They have everything music enthusiasts can ever dream of: premium sound quality, fashionable design and shockingly long battery life. Overall, they receive ratings of averagely 7/10, which is surely impressive.
The package comes with the headphones, a case of same color black, an USB cable for charging, 2 spare eartips of different sizes and the manual.
First impression of these SoundSport Wireless honestly are not too positive when the 2 eartips look quite big, especially the housing. Compared to the wired version, definitely these wireless ones, in spite of them having the same eartips designs, have larger housing. But there has to be a place for the battery and Bluetooth parts.
But do not worry since these bulky-looking eartips stay securely in your ears. These StayHear+ sports tips might not be on top in terms of design and compactness, their functionality is definitely on point. The power button lies at the top of the right earbud, conveniently turning on/off and pairing with other devices. The integrated in-line mic and playback remote are engineered to be very thin, along with the delicate but powerful wire which lies securely around your neck even in sports activities. The remote is home for three buttons of hands-free calling, track pausing and skipping. One thing Bose guarantees is that their eartips are not easily falling out.
With a Bose’s gadget, you normally will not expect disappointment. Sound performance of these wireless SoundSports can be considered good. Clarity and bass are done just right, that means to some bass people, these headphone sets might not be the best choice. They still produce those powerful, punchy bass sound that empowers your running sessions, but not the best bass elements. But consider these being wireless and that lightweight and from this price range, SoundSports are a real bargain.
Since being made of plastic, it is safe to say that Bose SoundSport Wirelesses are waterproof. That is why they have the name SoundSport – when rain and sweat are no longer a problem to users. Bluetooth connectivity takes no time, working well within area of up to 30ft. They also have NFC if you have compatible device. Full battery enables up to 6 hours of non-stop music playing or phone answering.
Overall, these pairs of Bose SoundSport Wireless are good for your ears and budget. They are not a masterpiece in the headphone industry, but they are comfortable, stylish-looking, functional and affordable. Some people compare these ones from Bose and the AirPods from Apple. Obviously those AirPods score more in terms of sound quality, but the battery life is shorter. They have equally attractive designs and connectivity capacity with smart device running on Android and iOS.
