I was given these as a Christmas gift in 2016. The product worked flawlessly for about a year. Evidently there is a 1-year warranty on the product, and of course just after Christmas 2017 the product started having issues. It won't hold a charge, will shut down suddenly, etc. For a Bose product, especially given the cost, I would expect much more.
These are my favorite headphones for running or working out, and also watching movies on an airplane. The sound and fit is nearly identical to the soundsport free. They sound like bose headphones - pretty good, you can probably get better sound but there will be compromises in other areas. The soundsport free's have a few strange compromises to eliminate the wire - phone calls only play through the right side, and they have trouble pairing to my laptop (a razer running windows 10)- they would only pair in headset mode and not music mode. I would blame razer or microsoft, but I've never had this problem with any other headphone. These Soundsport have no nonsense with oddities like that, and the reception is a bit better as the antenna is in the wire, not enough to make a difference in practice. But there is, of course, a wire. I consider this a good thing when I run (and I run almost every day) as I tuck it into my headband to keep them from moving. I also have a lot of hair so it can be hard to fit the free's back in on the fly, need to clear all the hair out of your ear first, same with any in-ear. You can also dangle one phone from the wire around your neck without worrying about it. The buttons are much easier to press. The only downside is, they charge using a micro-usb and not the usb-C that my laptop, phone, and nintendo switch use. In fairness, the frees, sony's, and bose's soundlinks use micro-usb, too, so you'll be stuck needing to worry about an extra charging cord no matter what.
By comparison, I wanted to also mention how these compare to the airpods and free's. Both of those eliminate the wire, but with the addition of a charging case that has an extra battery. The apple case is quite discreet, whereas the bose free case is hilariously huge. If you keep your phone in an otterbox or it is a panasonic toughpad, you probably won't mind the bose case. It makes quite a bump in your jeans pocket. The airpods have some funky pairing mechanisms that make them difficult to use if you have other apple equipment - For work, my employer has given me an iphone 7 and an older macbook pro from 2015. Switching the airpods between these devices will occasionally require the device be signed out and back into icloud - which is a huge headache. After the 2nd time of hitting the massive icloud reset button in the sky, they have been relegated to phone use only with my xperia. This is where the airpods excel - phone calls play through both ears, you can use both, or either one, or even share one with a colleague for a conference call. The mike is great at noise cancelling, and I work in very noisy environments. Both pods have a mike and the work some voodoo when you wear both of them to cancel out almost all noise. They do a lot of really nice stuff.
My personal phone is a sony xperia xz1, and the airpods pair to and work with the sony without any hiccup, never failing to pair. They also pair to my windows laptop fine, but will only connect to one device at a time (They forget the other device and must be re-paired, which is quite painless but still an annoyance compared to the Bose). They also sound really really bad, and don't have any controls other than a play/pause by either 'double flicking' either pod while it's in your ear, or removing one pod to pause. You can find better-sounding BT headphones than the airpods for under $20, and they will have much better controls, but they won't have apple branding. The airpods charging case requires an apple-specific lightning cable, but one comes in the box so it's not a huge deal.
The soundsport free's, by contrast, feature the excellent sound quality of the soundsports, IMO they sound even better because they are newer. They are my favorite headphones for just listening to music around the house or taking a quick phone call. Unlike the airpods, they don't really work with just one. The right bud is the "master": it is used for phone calls (there is no mike in the left bud), it also has the +,...,- buttons on the top, which are slightly awkward because they are hard to press. The left bud does not play voice calls, it is used for music only. It also has the BT pairing button on it. You can almost get away with using only the right bud, so long as you don't want/need to switch devices. You can also use just the left bud, but the right bud needs to be kept within range (e.g., in a pocket) and also out of the charging case.
However, the soundsport free's have one big advantage, or disadvantage depending on your use case, and there is no wire connecting them. Because I have long and bushy/curly hair, my hair will push the wire around if I'm not wearing a headband or hat (e.g. whenever I'm not running) and it will cause the headphones to come loose. That is a thing of the past with the free's, and the free's are the only headphones I have ever used where I can stick them in and forget them - the airpods are slightly better than the wired headphones included with the iphone (best just left in the box, IMO) but will still fall out and bounce all over the floor if you turn your head even slightly to one side. I have noticed that if sweat gets into the free's they get a bad honky sound to them, and then need to be rinsed out. If sweat gets into the regular soundsports, they just get quieter (muffled) and the volume can then be turned up to compensate.
Both versions of soundsport are quite discreet as they stick mostly within the ear area. The airpods have a white stalk that dangles below the earlobe... this contains the battery and antenna so it is necessary for now but it is quite noticable, as they are bright white. Depending on the earrings I'm wearing the stalk can clack against the earring. Right now I'm wearing 4awg glass spirals and I wear them all the time, they definitely clack into the airpods. However, the airpods are still small enough that people will want to talk to you and not realize you have headphones in to ignore them on purpose. For this purpose (e.g. airports, lounges, etc) the Soundlink around-ear's still reign supreme (mine are bright white from 2015, even with my hair they cannot be missed).
If you are concerned about price, these soundsports are the least expensive of the 3 (although in such a case it is hard to argue against a pair of jvc or koss gummy headphones for 9 dollars, and live with the wire going to your phone... if the wire rips, it's only $9... I also bought my first soundsport in 2016 and they were 150 even back then - the airpods being 160 and free's being a bit more around 200. Ideally Bose would have introduced the free's at 150 and dropped the regular soundsport to 120 or so, but I don't think any of these brands are competing on price. The IT man gave me the airpods, I would not have spent my own money on them.
My first pair died after about 2 years of daily use - early morning runs and then showers. While bose advertises them as waterproof, they are not necessarily sweatproof, dirtproof, chlorine proof, shampoo proof, etc. My 2nd pair I have been careful to rinse them out in the shower after every run, I've had them for about 8 months now and they are still going strong. I sometimes wear the airpods in the shower too and they are holding up fine, but they fall out easily (same reason why I don't run with them) and their sound is really only meant for phone calls and spoken word, not music. I try to avoid getting the soundsport free's wet. I'm sure they are just as waterproof as the regular soundsports, but there's no easy way to dry them off without worry about losing them (don't want to put in case wet, can't be hung from the towel rack because no wire, looks suspiciously like a doggo treat, etc).
Long story short, if I only had one pair of headphones, it would be these. If I didn't run and exercise so much, it would be the free's. If I never listened to music and only used them for phone calls and podcasts, it would be the airpods. But, I like to run and I like to listen to music, so... the end!
Less than a month after I began using the BOSE SoundSport Earbuds, the battery life has gone from 2 hours to no hours. After having the headphones plugged into my computer overnight, when I pressed the power button, nothing happened. The unit no longer holds a charge. I guess I'll have to stick with wires when listening at the gym.
And now the original review.
I purchased these Bose SoundSports to replace a different brand of blu-tooth earbuds that quit working a week after I purchased them. While the Bose headphones are a comfortable fit and do sound good while I am listening to either music or an audiobook when using the rowing machine or stationary bike at the gym, I am less impressed with the battery life. I have never had more than about 2 hours of battery life since the purchase. I won't go into the schematic of my workouts, but each last approximately an hour. At the end of the 2nd workout, the headphones register that the battery is near depletion. So much for the 6 hours of battery life Bose advertises.
Get these if fit and sound quality rather than battery life are what you are looking for.
The app is nice and works perfectly. Also, I use Runkeeper and now I get heart rate data in that app. The sound is amazing just like all Bose products.
I have Bose noise canceling headphones, a mini wireless speaker, and a Bose system in my car.
I doubt my issue is related to sweat. I do use my headset daily and it often just hangs around my neck. I don't understand how this occurs but sweat is not the issue.
If you're a power user and want trouble-free headphones, this may not be the unit for you. Granted, Bose is going to provide you with great customer service but Bose is supposed to be a solid name in audio technology. Their audio quality is definitely high-bar. But this issue is annoying and should be investigated and corrected.
Top international reviews
Wir waren im Vorfeld durchaus skeptisch, da wir bisher einen Sport-Kopfhörer mit Ohrbügel hatten.
Das war ebenfalls ein Wireless-Modell, der Sound war leider nicht besonders, und er ging nun kaputt.
Daraufhin haben wir das Plantronics BackBeat Fit 2100 ausprobiert, und waren davon sehr enttäuscht.
Das Plantronics BackBeat Fit 2100 hat ein Grundrauschen, und das geht bei einem Headset gar nicht.
Wer Bose mag, wird die SoundSport lieben. Der Klang ist Bose-typisch und wir sind davon begeistert.
Wenn Sie Ihre Erwartungshaltung vor dem Kauf abwägen, werden Sie mit diesen Bose zufrieden sein.
Als gelungen empfinden wir die App. Die Kopplung funktioniert einfach, die Bedienung kinderleicht.
Wir werden die Kopfhörer hauptsächlich beim Laufen nutzen, und dafür haben wir sie ja auch gekauft.
Wer es mag, kann sie natürlich auch beim Wellness, im Büro und zum Entspannen auf Reisen einsetzen.
Bei Lieferung waren die Sport-Kopfhörer zu 50% aufgeladen, so konnten wir Sie gleich ausprobieren.
Die SoundSport lassen sich auch dank der Stay here-Sporteinsätze schnell und leicht im Ohr einsetzen.
Und wenn Sie einmal sitzen, bleiben Sie auch im Ohr, ohne dass man beim Laufen nachjustieren muss.
Wir sind gleich einmal 15 km am Stück gelaufen und hatten die SoundSport durchgehend in den Ohren.
Der Sitz ist angenehm: nichts drückt, und das Kabel haben wir am Hinterkopf - man merkt es gar nicht.
Sicherheit: auch wenn es InEar-Kopfhörer sind: man bekommt von der Umgebung ausreichend mit.
Vorbeifahrende Autos hört man rechtzeitig. Und klingelnde Radfahrer bekommen Sie auch zu hören.
Und wenn Sie über das Herbstlaub laufen, hören Sie selbst die Blätter unter Ihren Schuhen rascheln.
Natürlich kommt es darauf an, wie laut Sie Ihre Musik hören, aber das ist bei jedem Headset gleich.
Bei Lieferung hatten sie den Firmware-Stand 1.0.9. Über die App haben wir sie auf 2.5.3 upgedatet.
Interessant: das Herstellungsdatum ist auf April 2018 datiert. Damit sind sie über ein 1/2 Jahr alt.
Wo waren sie so lange zwischen Herstellung und Lieferung? Ein Ladenhüter sind sie jedenfalls nicht.
Denn wie man anhand der vielen Rezensionen erkennen kann, sind die SoundSport oft im Einsatz.
Wir empfinden die Verarbeitung als wertig, ebenfalls ausgezeichnet ist auch die Qualität beim Etui.
Dennoch haben wir uns das Lade-Transportetui (Euro 35,-) bestellt, das ist stabiler für unterwegs.
Zudem bietet es neben dem besseren Schutz quasi als Powerbank noch zusätzliche Akkuladungen.
Apropos Laufzeit: damit sind wir sehr zufrieden. Wir laden die SoundSport etwa einmal in der Woche.
Das ist jedoch individuell. Praktisch: beim Einschalten wird die verbleibende Akku-Laufzeit angesagt.
Nicht ausprobiert haben wir das Freisprechen bzw. das Mikrofon. Das ist uns beim Sport nicht wichtig.
Wichtig ist uns jedoch die Verarbeitungsqualität. Und damit sind wir bis dato auch äußerst zufrieden.
Sollte sich unser bisheriger Eindruck ändern, werden wir dies natürlich gerne entsprechend ergänzen.
Das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis geht für uns in Ordnung. Von uns gibt's Stand heute eine Empfehlung.
Wenn Ihnen die Rezension gefallen hat, freuen wir uns über eine entsprechende "Nützlich"-Rückmeldung.
Lemme say , the technology has improved over years just like smartphones, I guess. My list of pros and cons:
1. Sound: This time, Bose did tweak the volume EQ a lot. You can hear tracks from various genres, with the right flavour you want. For instance, these wireless earphones will adapt to each song, no need to set your own eq, or raise the volume to listen to your piano or any favorite part of a track.
2. Volume: one thing I dislike about noise isolation or other wireless headphones is volume. It varies with Android and iOS. Even calls. Clarity is so good, I now keep the volume around 60 percent, as compared to jabra elite.
3. Connectivity: It pairs before you prompt your Bluetooth. No need to scan devices , which is so cumbersome.
1. Weight: a bit on the heavier side. You may feel fatigue around earlobes, which is not seen in jabra or jaybird. Maybe, the main earpiece is heavy. Also hangs around the ear a lot. Looks ugly!
2. App: No use of bose connect app.
3. Sound cancellation: None. Not even isolation.
4. Charging: would have loved a case, rather than cable.
I was initially put off by the look, make no mistake, these are bulky. They stick out from your ears a good inch, and you are always are you are wearing them, although they're still very comfortable, the shape of bose tips fits my ears perfectly. In fact I almost sent them back because of this.
Then I started to appreciate them more based on their advantages over their competitors:
Because the earpieces are so bulky there's no long, heavy wire like on the beats x to get trapped during workouts on a bench, or flap around, pulling the buds out and leading to cable noise. The sound quality on these also blows the beats out of the water. I would say powerbeats come close, but wearing over the ear clips day to day makes you look almost as silly as these bulky things.
Charging uses a standard micro usb into the right earpod, which is covered by a flap of rubberised plastic. This I feel is a weak point as the flap seems like it will tear after extended use. However, it is a much preferable solution to the proprietary charger used by the Jaybird X3's.
Battery seems closer to 7 hours than the advertised 8, but a 10 minute charge refills almost two hours of playback. Battery can be improved using the bose connect app to reduce the amount of time before the headphones go to sleep when they don't receive any sound.
The app is pretty bare bones, it can generate funny names for your buds, and allows you to stream the same audio to two pairs of bose headphones. There aren't any EQ options however, which would be nice to see. You can change the language of voice prompts (Please add UK english), or turn them off entirely.
The inline volume controller seems a bit clunky, it has your usual up and down volume, play, pause, hold to activate siri. But the buttons are covered by a rubber membrane that sometimes makes them hard to press.
Conclusion: Currently the best bluetooth in ears on the market in my opinion. Yes, they have their flaws, size being a significant one. But if you can get past that, the sound is better than any of it's nearest competitors, and without any of the even greater drawbacks that others have. If you buy them and dislike them because of their size, wait a day before sending them back, and try to find something better, I couldn't.
This one is the best sounding wireless pair I've ever tried in this budget. Not for bass lovers, if they have used Sony before.
Before purchasing I had gone through Bose official website to check from where I need to buy. Amazon was on the list.
I had called up Bose Customer service for more details regarding the headset and got to know that Appario Retail Private Ltd is an authorized seller on their list.
My next move, Open Amazon and click on add to cart.
Thanks to Amazon and Appario Retail Private Ltd for the One day delivery.
The package was in perfect shape when I received it. Perfectly packed, Brand New. Thumbs Up.
The SoundSoundSport Wireless is a very comfortable in-ear wireless sports headphone that's sweat resistant and sounds great.
The earphones fit securely in your ears, Thanks to the winged tips.
The headphone works decently as a headset for making cell-phone calls and has an auto-off feature to preserve battery life.
The volume control and multifunction button works fine.
However, SoundSoundSport Wireless is a little bulky but don't feel heavy. If you want the earphones to be obscure then this is not for you.
Lacks with the battery life tops out at 6 hours when we can see few of the new wireless earphones giving us 10-18 hours of play.
No Noise cancellation, Not very good while going on road or noisy environment as it picks up all the sounds around you.
Overall Bose SoundSport Wireless is a decent headphone with great sound and clarity but lacks in battery life and noise cancellation.
I'll just add an update to this after using it for a few weeks.
Added some snaps for you guys.
Have been using this for almost a year now. No issues whatsoever.
Gives 6 hours of battery backup. I believe the quality issue that was previously mentioned by many of the users including my friend who had replaced it, has been fixed after a certain batch of earphones.
So far So good. Happy Shopping.
Update on my Bose SoundSport Wireless as I’m nearing to 2 years of use.
The audio quality is still the same with great sound and clarity. No complain on the battery backup as well.
Now as we get to the build quality, few weeks back the construction started falling apart. The button for powering the earphones fell out as the rubber holding it in place loosened.
The little silicone door on the charging port broke off as well. Thought the build quality has been fixed after a certain batch of earphones as I mentioned in the previous update. But No, still the same.
I'm really disappointed that they've started falling apart already, Especially since I take such good care of them as I have mentioned previously. I never used these for workouts or dropped water on them.
Attached few snaps of the earphones which is starting to fall apart completely.
Not even completed 2 years and the situation of my earphone is worse. Reducing one star for the poor build quality. Thought the build would last at least 3+ years considering the price and the makers of the earphone.
Disappointed with the build quality from a reputed brand like Bose.
Qualità del suono ★★★★★
- Sono auricolari pensati per lo sport. Per musica che dà carica con bassi profondi sono perfetti. Suono caldo e avvolgente.
- Sembrano enormi ma una volta indossati non si staccano e non danno alcun fastidio. Li uso nella corsa, in bicicletta e per esercizi di preparazione atletica come scatti, arresti e ripartenze, navette, cambi di direzione veloci e restano incollate alle orecchie che è una meraviglia. Non fanno effetto tappo nelle orecchie come altri auricolari.
Portata del segnale ★★★★☆
- Ottima, di una decina di metri. Il suono rimane abbastanza costante e questo permette di lasciare il cellulare a bordo campo mentre svolgo la seduta di preparazione atletica all'aperto. Poichè il ricettore bluetooth è sull'auticolare destro, ogni tanto capita che, girandosi e frapponendo il corpo tra ricettore e smpartphone, il suono possa interrompersi per un secondo.
Funzionalità di utilizzo ★★★☆☆
- Ogni volta che vengono accesi, una voce avvisa della percentuale residua di carica della batteria (che peraltro dura diverse ore). La stessa voce avvisa quando si stanno per scaricare; funzione molto utile ma avrei anticipato l'avviso di batteria scarica così da permettere più di una quindicina di minuti di utilizzo prima dello spegnimento. Non mi piace molto la sensazione tattile dei pulsanti dei comandi posti sul filo: non c'è troppa differenza di spessore tra i tasti che volte si confondono e risultano sono anche un po' troppo duri.
Materiali e assemblaggio ★☆☆☆☆
- Questo il loro tallone d'Achille. La clip di aggancio posteriore al colletto della maglietta si è rotta dopo pochi utlilizzi, esattamente come era successo per quella degli auricolari Bose con filo. Le plastiche dopo un po' di mesi di utilizzo intensivo nello sport (6 giorni su 7) hanno iniziato a scollarsi, sia quelle dei comandi posti sul filo (rendendo estremamente difficoltoso il loro utilizzo), sia quelle a protezione degli auricolari. Così alla prima pioggia che mi ha sorpreso mentre correvo è entrata acqua e mi sono giocato l'auricolare di sinistra e ora sono da buttare, vanificando quanto Bose scrive sul sito: "...correre sotto la pioggia ... porte acustiche resistenti al sudore e agli agenti atmosferici, ... tessuto idrorepellente che non lascia passare l'umidità." Per auricolari di marca che di listino costano 149,95€ trovo che questo sia un problema grave: da qui solo le 3 stelle nel mio giudizio generale.
Servizio clienti Bose e Amazon ★★★★★
- Visto il problema dello scollamento delle plastiche nel tempo e del difetto occorso all'auricolare sinistro mi sono rivolto sia al servizio clienti di Bose che a quello di Amazon. Entrambi, con la massima gentilezza e rapidità, mi hanno proposto la sostituzione in garanzia dell'articolo. Sostituzione, che per velocità di procedura, ho affidato ad Amazon.
Just to add to this review, Bose product support is the worst ever where as the people at Amazon are fantastic. Even though it has been 5 months since I purchased the headphones they are still helping me where Bose where no help what so ever. Guy at Bose even had the balls to say "are these even real Bose headphones?" absolute joke. Thanks Amazon for your great service, Bose thanks for nothing...
Better than my Sony WH-1000 wireless headphones in terms of their connection to my phone over bluetooth.
Very comfortable fit in the ear - I'm quite susceptible to my ear cartilage starting to ache with some on-ear/in-ear headphones, but these headphones NEVER induce this, and I've worn them for well over 400 hours since purchasing.
Cons: Not that great for exercise, which is what they're sold on.
If you get a true sweat on, one or both ears will lose all their bass.
They stick out far too much from your ear, so in winter they're pretty much impossible to wear under a winter cycling hat, or a beanie/hoody when running or cycling in the cold.
The chord between the ear piece is a bit stiff, and twists weirdly so is never really truly comfortable at the back of the neck (clipped or unclipped).
20 months in, the plastic that covers the right ear piece has half come away and the power button has come loose from underneath this cover. Bose are repairing or replacing under warranty (so list this customer service as a massive PRO!!!).
None of these have made me annoyed enough to replace the headphones - but if they ever did need replacing, I wouldn't purchase again.
If these had 10 stars I would give them it, the iPhone app is great as it helps tell you when the battery is running low.
I also decided to take the amazon 3 year insurance for £20 against them breaking down as I use them everyday to train and my Jabra only lasted 2 years
Jedoch hat sich meine Meinung nach einem halben Jahr Benutzung geändert. Durch die enorme Größe und Schwere der Phones, rutschen sie gerne mal raus. Im Alltag leicht nervig, im Training leider ein echtes Problem. Noch schlimmer, durch das ständige hineindrücken ins Ohr bekomme ich anschließend an Workouts schmerzen in den Ohren. Sogar eine Entzündung im linken Ohr war kürzlich eine Folge.
Daher mein Fazit, leider nicht wirklich benutzbar und für das Geld leider katastrophal. Das ärgert mich schon sehr. Das waren meine 4. In-ear-sport headphones von Bose und ich war immer ein regelrechter Fan der diesen.
Ich hoffe Bose reagiert auf meine Anfrage sie gegen ein anderes Modell zu tauschen. Update hierzu folgt.
The mistake I made was using a product called soundsport to actually do sports. I went on a long cycle ride where the small plastic clip that stops the headphones from falling off failed. They fell into the gears of the bike and the wire was severed.
I though no big issue. A bit annoying but I’m sure I can get the cable repaired. Contacted bose and they said due to the complex nature of the wiring the product couldn’t be repaired. They would however offer me a 20% discount off a new pair.
Pretty ridiculous that if the wire on a set of wireless headphones breaks it can’t be repaired. Also the fact that a product marketed as soundSPORT should clearly not be used for active activities.
Like I say great product just don’t use it for any sports
Nachdem das Produkt vor nicht einmal 2 Jahren auf den Markt kam, ist die Haltbarkeit bzw. die Qualität imho mehr als fragwürdig! Ich habe damals 229 Euro bezahlt, was einem absoluten Premium-Preis entspricht!
Ich habe Amazon kontaktiert und wurde mit einem Link zur Hersteller-Kontaktseite von Bose abgespeist. Dort habe ich sachlich mein Anliegen eingetragen, und in Folge dessen seltsamerweise keine Reaktion erhalten (auch nicht im SPAM-Ordner). Auch nicht die versprochene automatische Eingangsbestätigung, obwohl ich ganz sicher die korrekte E-Mail-Adresse eingetragen habe (durch Screenshot nachweisbar). Deshalb habe ich es tags drauf abermals probiert, ebenfalls keine Rückmeldung. Das liegt nun mehr als 1 Woche zurück.
Kurzum, von einem Premium-Hersteller und einem Premium-Produkt zu einem absoluten Premium-Preis erwarte ich mind. einen guten Support. Ebenso eine Haltbarkeit von mindestens 2 Jahren. In dem Sinne wurde ich von Bose in vollem Umfang enttäuscht, zumal weder der Sitz im Ohr gut ist, noch der Klang überragend. Einzig die Pulsmessung hat gut funktioniert, solange man den Kopf nicht dreht. Dann versagt die Messung.
Absolut KEINE Kaufempfehlung!!
Halt in den Ohren
Der Kopfhörer hat so kleine Haken, womit der Halt in den Ohren gewährleistet wird. Der Stöpsel wird in das Ohr geführt und mit einer leichten Drehung in die Ohrmuschel hinein gedreht. Somit sorgen die Kopfhörer für einen guten Halt.
Nach längerem Tragen (3-4 Stunden) bekomme ich allerdings in einem meiner Ohren ein Unwohlsein - Es tut auch ein klein bisschen weh. Das liegt aber nicht an den Kopfhörern, sondern an meinem Ohr :) Ich hab ein klein wenig deformiertes Ohr. Deshalb habe ich mir auf den Linken Kopfhörer auf den kleineren, mitgelieferten Aufsatz gewechselt und seitdem auch keine Probleme mehr.
Beim Training ist mir der Kopfhörer bislang nicht aus den Ohren gefallen und den Schweiß auf den Geräten lässt sich leicht mit einem feuchten Tuch abwaschen.
Von der Soundqualität bin ich beeindruckt - Ich hatte schon lange keine In-Ear Kopfhörer mehr, da mir die Bässe und die Mitten bei anderen Geräten einfach zu Flach waren - Nicht beim Bose SoundSport. Die Bässe sind präsent, die Mitten knackig.
Dazu sollte man erwähnen das ich keine Sound-Tests oder so gemacht habe, sondern einfach nur Deathmetal gehört habe.
Besser als erwartet empfinde ich die Akku-Laufzeit. Auf der Seite des Herstellers sind 6 Stunden zu lesen. In den "Kundenfragen und -antworten" hier auf Amazon wurde die Frage der Akku-Laufzeit mit 3 bis 5 beantworte (je nach Lautstärke).
Ich höre jetzt nicht übertrieben Laut, aber auch nicht zu leise und bei mir hat eine Ladung für einen Arbeitstag gereicht - 8 Stunden waren locker drin und in der Pause habe ich die Teile auch nicht aus geschaltet.
Eventuell liegt es daran, dass die Geräte noch neu sind und ich erst kurz vor dem Einsetzen den Ladevorgang beendet hatte.
Die im Gerät eingearbeitet Fernsteuerung lässt sich super leicht bedienen und wenn man erst einmal raus hat, wie man den Multi-Funktions-Knopf korrekt bedient, macht es fast schon Spaß.
Auch wenn das Gerät ein sportlicher Spontan-Kauf war, habe ich dennoch einiges von dem Kopfhörer erwartet und meine Erwartungen an den Bose SoundSport wurden rundum erfüllt.
