Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones Review

Last updated:  

The Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones are some of the best sounding sports headphones we've reviewed, but come with a fairly high price tag.

The good

  • Well built
  • Sounds great
  • Comfortable

The bad

  • No extra features
  • Expensive
  • Not a super tight fit

Bose’s SoundSport Wireless headphones are a great example of what middle-tier sports headphones should be.

While Bose’s premium offering, the SoundSport Pulse, has the latest technology in heart rate monitoring, the middle-tier SoundSport Wireless headphones are aimed squarely at active audiophiles.

The SoundSport Wireless headphones sit in the middle of a three-model line-up consisting of the wired (and cheaper) SoundSport in-ear headphones and the pricier heart-rate-tracking SoundSport Pulse Wireless headphones.

Design

  • Vibrant colour choices
  • Sweat and water resistant
  • Included carry case is a nice addition

Performance

  • Top-notch sound quality
  • High volume output is great for noisy environments
  • 6-hour battery life is decent, and the charge readout when you power them on is super useful

Features

  • Snug fit ensures stability during workouts
  • Lack of a joining cable prevents tangling

Verdict

Are the SoundSport Wireless Headphones worth their mid-$200 price tag? If you seriously value audio quality and don’t need headphones with the latest heart-rate-tracking technology, then these could definitely earn a spot in your ears during a tough workout.

If you’re not after either, you could do much worse than a pair of good budget wireless headphones, such as Cygnett’s FreeRun Wireless headphones.


Pricing and availability

The SoundSport Wireless headphones have an RRP of $249 on the Bose site, although one online retailer had them for as cheap as $227.99. This positions them in high-end territory, although they're not in the $300 and above range many heart-rate-tracking models occupy.
