The Bose Sport Open Earbuds are open-back, open-ear headphones designed for sports and fitness. Unlike other sports-oriented headphones, they sit slightly outside of your ear to give you better spatial awareness while outdoors. On tracks with intense bass content, the Sport Open earbuds deliver decent depth, but when the deep subwoofer-range bass kicks in, the lows sound more like taps than thumps.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Bose Sport Open Earbuds have a unique fit system that will suit some more than others. An IPX4 water resistance rating means the earpieces can withstand light splashes, some rain, and sweat exposure. The lows sound okay and the low-mids sound rich, but sub-bass isn't really part of the discussion.

Sentiment Score[*] 37%
Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Bose Sport Open Earbuds are open-ear headphones designed for outdoor sports. They sit outside of the ear canal and have an open-back design, so genres like EDM and hip-hop lack thump and rumble. While we measured about 9.5 hours of continuous battery life with a recharge time of just over an hour, battery performance can vary according to usage, so your experience may vary.
