Cannot use these outdoors in the heat - I regret buying them
These headphones are fine on cool days or when your inside but they turn off if you are walking outside and its a warm day. I cannot believe I paid so much money for something that is not capable of performing the task I brough them for. they should come with a big warning and have no right to call be named Sport. If I change direction and there is the slightest breeze they flicker in and out

never purchasing bose again
I bought these earphones for my husband for his birthday 1.5 years ago and i thought considering the price, its got to be high quality and long lasting. My husband hasn't used it too much over this time and a few weeks ago it stopped working. It kept making this beeping sound so he called Bose to which the first person he spoke to couldn't provide any help. He called again another day and the person suggested he update the software, which he did and it was still the same. He called again to which they offered him a new pair at the cost of $170 ...because the 1 year warranty was up. Sound quality and comfort was pretty good, but durability, which is my biggest point is extremely poor. The support service individuals were rude to my husband and didn't want to help.Maybe we happened to get a dud but safe to say, never purchasing anything from Bose again.
Great headphones for music, not for video
I've had these for 4 months now and extremely happy with them. The sound is clearer than any other headphones I have used.
They're perfect for listening to music, running and commuting. They get the promised 5 hours of play too.
The only issue with them is that there is a small delay in sound playback which means if you're listening to a video the sound is slightly out of sync with the picture. It seems to get even worse when in a crowded bluetooth environments like a train or plane. I don't get this problem with my similar Sony headphones so it's a Bose software issue.

Good battery, compact and easy charging case, great sound though I had an issue it would disconnect and reconnect sometimes intermittently. Overall, it was great headphones, would rate 4 stars.

Best In Ear Headphones
The Bose Sound Sport wireless headphones are the best in ear headphones on the market at the moment. I used to own the airpods and these are much superior in everyway. The sound is superior and it fits much better in my ear. There is no noise cancelling at all, but that isn't necessary for in ear headphones.

I usually listen to music with my headphones but I like to use it with my social calls as well while I am walking or jogging. Though they dont appear discreet in my ears, which I could have preferred, they are held securely. I like the idea of wireless charging while it is in the case. so clever.
Purchased in June 2019 at qantas store for A$200.00.
Great headphones that stay put!
I really rate these wireless headphones from Bose. The sound quality is amazing and taking phone calls is a breeze; I’ve been told the sound is very clear for the person on the other end of the line too. They are excellent for all sports and they really stay put when running or out and about. I use these at work, on the bus, all occasions really. There is a slight delay sometimes in the bluetooth connection but if measured I am sure it would be a fraction of a second.
can NOT use the LEFT unit alone while leave the right one charging
con: $250+ earbuds can NOT use the LEFT unit alone while leave the right one charging!!!
come on!! can NOT use the LEFT earbud by itself!!
have 1 second lag when watch videos on pc or phone
no active noise canceling
4 hours battery, again, if i can use one of them and leave the other one charging, that'd be doubled to 8 hours!! again this is $250+ headphone. Come on Bose seriously??! what were you thinking?? how much you gonna save??
pro: secure in ears
Good for music but call audio in ONE EAR only
Bose do not make clear there is an unexpected limitation with this product - in call audio and some other sources will play through one ear only. There is no workaround for this. Music audio plays ok and for this the sound quality is good.

great sound, poor battery life
the headphones work well for audio, control is hard, but battery life is pathetic. the charge case only lasts a few days and not being used, replacement is the same. Other cheap headphones hold their charge for months without problem and are $240 cheaper. Good design with poor execution. Disappointed with this experience from Bose
Purchased in April 2019 at Qantas for A$240.00.
Only worked for 14 months
Sound quality is OK but
Only worked for 14 months. Right charger doesn't work anymore, I was lucky to extend the warranty!!!
there are better quality headphones in the market with same the price
One Step Forward, Two Steps Backward
Better sound quality, heavy and crisp bass.
App enabled with device location service, helps you locating. A useful feature for me.
very comfortable for longer wear, for running and cycling.
Reasonably quick charge time.
The biggest let down - Call Audio. Voice will only come in one speaker. Super annoying!! Not acceptable in a premium and expensive product.
Emailed Bose on the voice in one ear issue, they replied saying use of True Wireless Stereo (TWS) has a technology limitation, obviously they masked the issue as a featu...
Great Headphone but only last 12 months before major issues
Yes I have had the poor quality issue. I had not used mine until about mid last year and noticed after 6months of daily use to walk 8 km that they started to fall apart. The first to go was the silicone covers as they are very poorly glued. First one headphone then the next.
The clip was the first thing to fall off and get lost on a walk after two days..... pretty disappointing for some thing at was at the top end of the product range. $200.00+
I could live with a little separation, but the fronts especially on the power button...side have effected the silicone power button and has cause it to lift and virtually pull off. So the units can not even be powered on.. Effectively DEAD! $200.00 for about 18 months wear at about an hour a day is extremely poor and i wear my apple airpods for at least 6 hours a day and have never had an issue.
Not bad, just be careful with them
I've been using these since Jan and so far the battery life is excellent, Sound quality is quiet good too for what they are. The case is an excellent idea it if it is a bit big (they charge when docked) just one word of warning they are super easy to drop so be careful. Volume is better than the last model so no issues there. For my ears personally they fit well but to each their own.
I guess in conclusion I'd recommend them just make sure not to drop one.
Swapped inferior Jabra Elite 65t for Bose soundsport free, they are fantastic.
I purchased a pair Jabra Elite 65t. Terrible quality sound. White noise, rattle in left ear. Poor bass and limited volume. Very tinny sounding. I was very disappointed as the Jabras were claiming to have a clearer sound.
Swapped for Bose soundsport. They have brilliant sound. Crystal clear. Great bass. Far superior over the Jabra. I highly Recommend these!
Bose misleading customers
I bought today these they are designed to only work together and if you want to just use one while the left one chargers you can use the right earphone but if you charge the right earphone and use the left it disconnects.
There is no info to say how this work not happy never get them or any other bose products again until they learn not mislead there customers.
I Am writing this review to let every one know that theses headphones should not have passed quality assurance and whoever passed them need to have there head examined in and to be fi...red also all bose can say is that this is how they are designed and reckon it said that in the instruction manual and nothing on the bose website or four site. Don't buy this product if you want to only use one earphone as when it does you can't use the other eaephone
Received these as a Christmas present but had been looking at purchasing prior to this. They are a great product and they sit nice and comfortably while working out at the gym or running. Recommend.
Great sound quality, easy connection
Works like a charm. Great little case to recharge from. Sound quality is great for in ear buds. Connection to Samsung S9 is flawless. Don't really use the buttons to control it, just control things from my phone. Buttons are tough to press. Good build quality. Beats any other free wireless in-ears I've tried.
These headphones sound great and fit in the ear comfortably and securely. However, they are fatally flawed by being the most unreliable connectors I’ve ever had in a Bluetooth headphone. Regularly refuses to connect to paired devices and impossible to connect to a Windows PC. Should be far better for the price.
