Bose SoundSport Free


Bose SoundSport Free review: Bose's first truly wireless headphones are designed for sport but a chunky design and fiddly controls mean these aren't perfect.

Secure fit ; Good sound quality ; Robust build ; Decent battery life

Chunky design ; Difficult-to-use buttons ; Large charging case

Bose’s first truly wireless earbuds don’t quite hit the mark, even if there’s a lot to like.

Bose SoundSport Free review


Bose's truly wireless in-ears are almost the perfect package.

Weighty, full-bodied sound ; Deep, powerful bass ; Even tonal balance

Unreliable wireless connection between earbuds

Impressive features and impressive sound to boot – we’d just like a more stable connection

Bose SoundSport Free review


Bose's truly wireless in-ears fall just short of sporting greatness...

Deep, powerful bass ; Nicely balanced and rounded sound ; Impressive battery life ; Find My Buds feature

Wireless connection between earbuds can be flaky

They'll wow you with their sound quality and features, but it’s hard to ignore the Frees' sometimes flaky connection

Bose SoundSport Free review: The best wire-free sports earphones by a mile


While they don't have some of the smart fitness features you get in the likes of the Lifebeam Vi or Jabra Elite Sport, the SoundSport Free are

Great sound ; Comfortable to wear for long periods ; Battery life is immense ; Nifty "find my earbuds" feature ; Solid connection

Design means the buds stick out quite a bit ; No customisable equaliser ; No heart-rate monitor ; Buttons are hard to press

Bose SoundSport Free True Wireless Earbuds review


Wireless earbuds built for quiet environments

Excellent, balanced sound ; Built for abuse ; Good battery life

Awful ambient noise isolation ; Earbuds fit loosely and stick out ; Comparatively expensive

The Bose SoundSport Free are an excellent sounding pair of wireless headphones with an ultra-reliable connection. They can an easily withstand the abuses of working out, however, their poor fit and open design will turn many casual listeners away. For...

Bose SoundSport Free review: Cut the wire with these exercise-friendly earphones


These Bluetooth earphones sound good and are splash-resistant – but they're bulky, and expensive

Good sound quality ; Find My Buds feature

Bulky design leads to wind noise ; Buttons are hard to press ; Expensive

Bose’s SoundSport Free wireless earphones sound good, with a good listening range – and the “‘Find My Buds” feature is a definite plus. They’re undeniably expensive, though, and the bulky design might well be a turn-off: it can lead to annoying wind...

Bose SoundSport Free review


Apple's AirPods may have dominated the totally wireless headphone market since their release but some compelling alternatives, including the Bose SoundSport Free, have hit the market in recent months.

Bose's SoundSport Free, a set of totally wireless earphones, offers richer sound than Apple's AirPods and a more secure fit. The buds are water-resistant and durable, battery life is decent and a charging case provides two extra charges on the go.

Fairly pricey. Some reports of audio syncing issues when watching videos. Buds stick out pretty far from your ears.

Better than the AirPods in some ways, the Bose SoundSport Free are among the best totally wireless headphones, although some small performance issues keep them from achieving a more exalted status.

Bose SoundSport In-Ear (updated review): Bose's sporty in-ear, now in new colors, takes the crown for comfort


The sweat-resistant version of Bose's popular in-ear headphone has come in a few different variations over the years. Here's our full review of the current model.

The Bose SoundSport In-Ear headphones are secure and comfortable as well as sweat-resistant, and their "open" design is appealing. They also offer pleasantly full bass and include an integrated remote and microphone and a nice carrying case.

They let sound in, so they're not good for noisier environments.

While the Bose SoundSport In-Ear may not be the best sounding in-ear headphone for the money, the design and comfort level are great, and it's ideal for people who want this sort of headphone style without the need to jam the tips into their ear canals.

Bose SoundSport Free


Bose has done a good job with its first pair of truly wireless earbuds, but they're not as sporty as we expected. Check out the new SoundSport Free in-ear headphones.
