The Bose SoundSport Wireless are good wireless sports earbuds. They're comfortable and should be stable and breathable enough to take with you to the gym. Their sound profile is well-balanced, and their semi-open design gives them a better soundstage than most in-ears. Unfortunately, their 6-hour battery life is only mediocre and they don't block as much noise as other in-ear/earbuds which is not ideal for commuting. Their build quality also isn't as durable as some of the other Bose designs. On the upside, they're very portable, and they include a decent carrying case as well.
The Bose SoundSport Wireless are very good headphones for sports use. They're wireless and compact enough to carry around wherever you go. They have a stable and semi-open fit that allows runners to monitor their surroundings.
The Bose SoundSport Wireless has a sleek sporty aesthetic. They come in a few different colors to match your taste and look premium and well-designed. Unfortunately, they're a little bulky and protrude out of your ears once you have them on, which is a little disappointing.
The Bose SoundSport has a comfortable earbud tip design. They don't fully enter the ear canal, removing the pain that some listeners often experience with in-ear headphones. Also, their Stayhere+ tips are a bit more comfortable and open than the Stayhere+ tips of the SoundTrue Ultra In-Ear and the QuietComfort 20. Unfortunately, they sometimes shift around while you're walking, which can cause slight discomfort and frustration, especially when it affects the audio.
The Bose SoundSport Wireless has a mediocre control scheme. They provide call/music, track skipping, and volume controls, but lack good tactile feedback. The buttons are fairly large and heavily rubberized to make them sweatproof. Sadly, this also makes the buttons hard to push, especially the volume controls, unlike the more clicky and responsive in-line remote found on the AKG N200.
The Bose SoundSport wireless is easy to carry around in a pocket, bag, or purse. They're a little larger than regular in-ear models, but the cable isn't too long or thick and doesn't take too much space. This makes them very portable even if they're a little larger than some other wireless in-ear headphones.
The Bose SoundSport has an above-average build quality. The earbuds are dense and made of a tough plastic that shouldn't get damaged by a couple of drops. The audio cable has a decent thickness, and the in-line control module is coated with a layer of rubber to make them sweatproof. Unfortunately, the cable isn't flat or additionally rubberized to be more durable. They're also not as sweatproof as expected and may get damaged by regular exposure to humidity, which is disappointing.
The Bose SoundSport Wireless has a mediocre overall battery performance. Their 6-hour battery life is unremarkable, and they take 1.5 hours to charge, which is fairly long considering their short battery life. On the upside, they have an auto-off timer to help conserve battery a bit. For wireless in-ears with more battery life, look at the JBL Everest 110, the Anker SoundCore Spirit X Wireless, or the Sony WI-XB400.
The Bose SoundSport Wireless use the same app as the QuietComfort 35 and SoundLink Around-Ear II, which looks sleek and stylish but only provides a disappointingly small list of features. You get an auto-off timer you can set at different intervals, a bare-bones in-app media player, and the battery level status. Unfortunately, there's no equalizer, room effects, or any other experience-enhancing features that would set this app apart from the others.
