The Bose Sport Earbuds are some of the most comfortable in-ears I've had the pleasure of wearing. The earbuds use Bose's proprietary drivers and the company's Active Active tunes the frequency as close to the 700 curve as possible. The battery life could be longer, but if you're looking for a pair of sportEarbuds that don't skimp on music chops, they're the way to go.

Sentiment Score[*] 54%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Bose Sport Earbuds have a modest IPX4 rating for water resistance. The in-ear fit is quite secure, as the earpieces use combination eartips and earfins. Tapping and holding on the right earpiece's panel summons your device's voice assistant.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful audio performance with rich bass and bright highs
  • Solid battery life
  • Comfortable in-ear fit

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Bose Sport Earbuds are well-built truly wireless earbuds with a comfortable, stable fit so you can wear them during your workouts. They are compatible with Bluetooth-enabled PCs, but their latency is likely too high to be suitable for wireless gaming. If you're looking for a pair of truly wireless Bose headphones with an active noise cancelling feature, consider the Bose QuietComfort Earbud Truly Wireless.

Pros[**]
  • Good sound quality
  • Comfortable, stable fit
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Mediocre noise isolation performance
  • Lack of customization features

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Bose Sport Earbuds are available for $179 at major online retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy or directly from Bose. The matte-finished design with laser-etched Bose logo on the front makes them almost look identical. Despite these flaws, brand loyalists who love Bose's minimalist aesthetic appeal will still find some great value out of these relatively affordable fitness buds.

Pros[**]
  • Great sound quality
  • Strong mic array and Active EQ
  • Comfortable fit
  • Good call quality
Cons[**]
  • Touch controls are a bit fiddly

Sentiment Score[*] 76%
Reviewers from Whathifi have found the following[***]:
Bose Sport Earbuds are a mash-up of the QuietComfort and SoundSport Free. The earbuds feel a little cheaper than their siblings, with a more rugged plastic used on the touch surfaces. The isolation you get from the Bose in-ears is good, although we'd be lying if we said we didn't miss the effectiveness and layer of noise-cancelling. Battery life is a pretty average five hours per charge.

Pros[**]
  • Solid call quality
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular
