Bose Soundsport Free Review
Bose Soundsport Free is a wireless sports headphone which is perfect if you are interested in a completely wireless gym/exercise session. The earbuds are completely wireless and come with an excellent sound quality along with the best feature in the world which is being completely wireless.
So if you want something as wireless as the Apple airpods for your workout sessions then the Bose Soundsport Free is one of the best headphones. These headphones are very similar to the ones from Jabra and Jaybird, so let’s see the detailed review of features on these headphones in the next few sections.
Design and Build Quality
The design of the headphones is a little different in comparison to the airpods or the Jaybird Run, these headphones stick out more from the ear and you are going to notice how big the earbuds are. Big earbuds are something that was dominant in the soundsport pulse headphones as well and the same has happened with the Bose Soundsport Free earbuds.
The earbuds somewhat remind me of the ones from the Soundsport pulse and they are almost similar the only difference being is that they are completely wireless. The color combination of the Citron and midnight blue colored headphones is amazing so if you like anything on those lines then you should definitely check out these headphones.
The sound quality on these headphones, as usual, is amazing. Not all headphones that are completely wireless have the sound quality like these Bose Sounsport Free headphones. The sound quality of completely wireless earbuds like these is not always perfect but Bose has mastered this feature giving you the perfect sound quality every audiophile would expect.
Because of the design, you do not get a 100 percent noise isolation on these and hence you can hear noises from your surroundings. If you are walking on a busy street wearing them then you would hear a mix of the music and traffic, yes, this is the level of noise isolation that you would possibly get with these earbuds.
The connectivity on these headphones is amazing and you would not find it breaking, like the other wireless earbuds. The Bose Soundsport Free provides a network quality similar to that of the apple airpods which is pretty amazing although you will see there is a lag when you try to play a video on YouTube.
The headphones are ideal for listening to music while working out, if you plan on watching videos using it, you might encounter a few problems. Bose is still working to fix them but it is better to be aware of them before going ahead with the purchase.
This is something I was a little annoyed about. The Soundsport Free in comparison to most of the Bluetooth headphones(wired earbuds), you feel comfortable while wearing them even though they do have a wire connecting the earbuds. Although this pair of earbuds did come with no wire, meaning you can use it in the long run without any issue but they are definitely slightly uncomfortable if you wear them for more than 2 hours.
The earbuds have different fin tip combinations and I think it would be safe to say that I have the smallest ears in comparison to most of the adults so the one that is pretty small did fit me and gave me the seal I was looking for, however it does hurt the ear after a while.
So, I don’t think I would be the most comfortable with these headphones but if you are okay with it and just want some wireless earbuds that give you an amazing sound quality then you can consider ignoring this, although do wear the earbuds once before jumping to any conclusion as the comfort is different for different people.
I did not use the headphones for too long and since the headphones are pretty new, not many users have complained about the durability. Although the earbuds are sweatproof and waterproof which makes them perfect for workout sessions.
The headphones come in a case and hence you can easily store them in it when not in use. The headphones are actually amazing and I guess they can last long if you take care of them properly and obviously not lose one side of the ear.
The battery life on these headphones can easily last you for about 5 hours. This is pretty good for a wireless earbud as it has an average battery life. You will get another extra 10 hours of charge from the charging case hence if you are thinking that 5 hour is less playback time, then consider using the charging case between every use.
The battery life usually on the normal Bose Soundsport headphones is 6 hours hence this one right here is better in comparison to the other headphones. You will need to charge the charging case with the USB cable which you can in turn use to charge the earbuds.
The charging case charges the earbuds and the charging case is charged by connecting to teh USB cable. This can be new to people who have been using completely wireless earbuds for the first time.
The Bose Soundsport FREE headphones are a pretty good set of wireless earbuds. There quite a few good sports wireless earbuds and the Bose Soudsport FREE are a few of them. There are a few downsides to these headphones and they are that you might want a problem while listening to video audio as many users have complained a lot of lag.
However, if you are considering to get these headphones just for your workout sessions then you should definitely purchase them as they are good for listening to music while working out. The headphones do not have a perfect noise isolation, however, if you want to be aware of your surroundings while listening to the music then you might want to give them a try.
