Bose Soundport wireless headphones and Apple Airpods are both really famous and if you are an audiophile then you know that this comparison post is going to be intense. Both the headphones are pretty amazing with a few differences from each other.
The Bose Soundpsport headphones do have a wire that connects the two earbuds while the Apple airpods have no wire connecting the earbuds and is completely wireless. If you are wondering which headphone is better than the other then do continue reading the detailed comparison post.
Design and Build Quality
Bose Soundsport headphones have a great design, the headphones have relatively large earbuds in comparison to the Jaybird X3 but they are definitely comfortable. The Bose headphones come in the grey citron color combination and that one looks really gorgeous.
The only wires you would find is the one connecting the two earpieces and running at the back of your neck. The Bose Soundsport comes with an inline remote that helps you take up calls, reduce or increase volume and next to the song that is currently being played.
The apple airpods, on the other hand, are white and completely wireless. They are plain earbuds that you need to place on your ears and start the music. The earbuds do not exactly give you the best seal and resemble a miniature toothbrush, to be honest.
The design of the airpods could have been better but since it is from Apple, they are definitely going to sell. They do have other great smart features but when it comes to the design and look I would rather go with the Bose Soundsport headphones.
The Sound quality on Bose headphones is AMAZING, there is no way you can complain anything about the quality of sound on these headphones. They probably have the best bass ever, and if you are looking for a sports Bluetooth headphone that has the best quality then it is the Bose Soundsport wireless headphones.
The apple airpods, on the other hand, are good as well and you have tap commands which are actually amazing to use. The airpods can easily connect with your iPhone and your MacBook as well. The sound quality is decent and not as great as the Bose Soundsport.
Both the headphones do not provide noise isolation that well, so you would be greeted with sounds from the external environment. The network connectivity on airpods is okayish as you do find a bit of disturbance when you start moving from one room to another in comparison the Bose Soundsport headphones were better.
The overall sound quality and network connectivity have to go to the Bose Soundsport Bluetooth headphones. They are amazing and slightly better in comparison to the Apple Airpods.
Needless to say, both the headphones are comfortable but the Apple Airpods are completely wireless which gives them a much-needed edge. They are extremely comfortable and you cannot tell if they are there in your ears. They just blend well with your comfort and you can use them for hours together.
The Bose, on the other hand, do have a wire on them and that is going to make you feel that you have something around your neck. The Bose Soundsport headphones are comfortable but you just cannot ignore the fact that the airpods are completely wireless and you can use them for pretty much anything and everything.
The tap commands on the airpods make them more easy to use which means you can be doing something and all you have to do is tap on the earbuds in order to change the song. Believe me, using the airpods is the most comfortable feeling ever.
The Bose Soundsport headphones are waterproof while the airpods are not. Yes, you can drop your Bose headphones inside water and nothing would happen to it as it is completely waterproof and sweatproof, however, one cannot say the same about the airpods.
You might need to be more careful with the airpods and for that, you have the charging case that comes along with it which is pretty amazing. You can keep your headphones and if you do not lose one of them then they can last you long.
While the Bose Soundsport can pretty much last you forever as these headphones have an excellent built and are more durable than the most talked about Apple airpods. I guess the airpods could be considered designed more for listening music and taking up calls from work while the Bose is for extensive exercises and gym sessions.
This is one of my favorite feature on any of the Bluetooth headphone since it is really important for me to have a headphone with a longer battery life because I never remember to put them on charge. The apple airpods have 10 hours of battery life with 24 hours of extra charge in the charging case that you get.
So basically you can take these headphones along with the charging case and go out no a small outing without worrying about charging it all the time. On the other hand, the Bose Soundsport wireless headphones come with a 6-hour charge and in the case you have depleted the battery, a 15 min charging will give you an hour of playback which is amazing.
Obviously, when we are talking about the battery life, the Apple airpods totally steal the show and there is no way one would say that they have an average battery life.
Both the headphones are great but the Bose Soundsport is better for people who want to get a pair of wireless headphones just for workout sessions. The Bose Soundsport are durable, comfortable and have a pretty good battery life. You can even use them for work but they won’t last long as the battery is just 6 hours.
On the other hand, Apple Airpods have more features and an everlasting battery life. You can use them for gym sessions but they are not waterproof so you might want to be careful while using them extensively. These headphones are good for sports workouts but if you know there is going to be a lot of sweat and water involved then you might want to go with the Bose headphones.
Airpods are good for little gym sessions and work. So, if you are looking for an all-rounder that gives you amazing features along with an everlasting battery life then the Apple airpods have to be your go-to earbuds.
