Bose Sport Earbuds Review

Recently I tried Bose Sport Earbuds. I’ve never had wireless earbuds before, and honestly, I was slightly worried they would fall out mid-run. Spoiler: they haven’t.

Obviously, Bose makes quality headphones, and they are also our first choice for aviation.

Recently Bose created a quality headphone called the Bose Sport Earbuds. The headphones are designed for working out, and unlike most of their headphones, they aren’t noise-canceling, and you can hear your surroundings too. It’s just dangerous to use noise-canceling headphones when you are out for a run on the streets.

Bose Sport Earbuds Intro:

According to the website, the Sport Earbuds are sweat-resistant in-ear headphones designed for working out like running, lifting weights, yoga, hiking, biking, and anything you do to move.

The Bose Sport Earbuds have a good sound, are comfortable to wear, and are lighter and smaller than the QuietComfort Earbuds.

Bose Sport Earbuds Features:

  • 5 hours of battery life
  • acclaimed lifelike sound
  • Secure and comfortable fit
  • True Wireless
  • Sweat and Water Resistant

Using the Bose Sport Earbuds:

I’ve never run in similar styles of headphones like the AirPods or Galaxy Buds, but the Bose Sport Earbuds are comfortable to wear and haven’t fallen out during a run.

Touch Controls: The touch controls on the earbuds are easy to use, and you can double-tap the left earbud to change tracks and the right to use access to the voice assistant. I do wish there was a volume control on the headphones themselves.

Call Quality: Taking calls with the Sport Earbuds is good. I can hear callers, and they can hear me. It hasn’t been an issue.


The earbuds are small and compact and fit in the ear. With the Bose Sport Earbuds, you do get three different sizes of the Bose StayHear Max Eartips. Each has an integrated wing that allows for a secure fit. The StayHear Tip is designed to nestle in your ears, and why it does “protrude from your ears” does get an extremely tight seal and allows you to get good sound quality.

Keep in mind; Bose has specifically chosen for the Sport Earbuds to have a “loose fit.” Why? To let outside noise in and so you can be aware of your surroundings. While the headphone has never fallen out midrun (and I’m not delicate with them), you should keep in mind that the Sport Earbuds is not going to be super tight.

I didn’t use previous versions, but many people complained the previous Bose Sport Earbuds were too large and bulky. The updated version is much smaller with better sound quality. The Sport Earbuds are still bigger and bulkier than similar models but down from what they once were. Do I notice them on runs? No.

Bose Sport Earbuds Conclusion:

In all, the Sport Earbuds are a good headphone for exactly what it says: sports. You aren’t going to get a “noise-canceling headphone” because that isn’t what it’s designed for. They stay put in, and with the three different earpieces, there is something that should fit everyone.

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