Left earbud won't pair anymore


Worked fine for a while, I'm now at the stage where I have to unpair and pair the headphones every time I want to use them, as the left earbud doesn't want to connect all the time anymore. SUPER frustrating, add 20min-30min jiggling with these headphones everytime before a workout or a listen. Not recommended.

Purchased in December 2019 at Myer for $300.00.

Pathetic Battery


Battery life reduced from 1.5 hr to 20 min within 1.5 year...Now it is literally un-usable. Sound quality is good but for a earbud, battery life as important as sound. Probably Bose did not think so...Moreover you can not change the battery ..only solution the customer service have is to get a new one !!!...Sorry not again..

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

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

Connection problems


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.

Loved them but they need to be shock-proof for active people


I couldn't live without these - loved them for 6 months, BUT after they fell out a few times they are broken and I'm really disappointed that such an expensive product, designed for sport, can be so fragile. I am active whilst wearing them and tried the various sized plugs so I had the correct size but they did fall out a couple of times and then they died. I've decided to take a safer option now.
