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.
- Vibrant colour choices
- Sweat and water resistant
- Included carry case is a nice addition
- 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
- Snug fit ensures stability during workouts
- Lack of a joining cable prevents tangling
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.
