Design
These headphones look well-built and durable. Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones Midnight Blue Citron a little bulkier than most truly wireless designs and come in a flashy yellow and blue color scheme that stands out. You can also get these SoundSport headphones in a more understated black scheme if you prefer.
Style Comfort
The buds of these SoundSport headphones feel premium and sturdy in the hand but once you put them on, the bulky design sticks out of your ears, which might not be ideal for everyone. Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones Midnight Blue Citron won't fit as discretely as the Jaybird Run or the Samsung Gear IconX, which is a little disappointing. The Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones Midnight Blue Citron has the same earbud fit of previous Bose models, like the SoundSport Wireless and SoundTrue Ultra In-Ear. This makes them quite comfortable. However, Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones Midnight Blue Citron are bulkier earbuds than the other models mentioned. This means since SoundSport are truly wireless, if you don't get the right tip for your ears, the weight of the buds of this SoundSport will slightly pull on the stability fins and cause a looser or an unstable fit which feels a bit less comfortable than older versions. Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones Midnight Blue Citron are more comfortable than conventional in-ear designs but aren't the most comfortable Bose earbuds we've tested.
Portability Build Quality
These SoundSport truly wireless headphones are quite portable despite their bulkier design. SoundSport truly wireless headphones will easily fit into most pockets but since you will most likely carry them in their case you will lose a bit of portability. Their case is surprisingly cumbersome and about twice the size of the Apple AirPods' charging case, which is not ideal if you want to carry them around on you at all times. They won't fit as nicely in your jean pockets. The build quality feels durable and sturdy. They won't break from a couple of shoulder-height drops and feel considerably denser than some of the other truly wireless designs we've tested. Even the case came with the headphone is pretty durable but slightly heavy and bulky.
Stability Controls
The headphones are stable headphones for sports. Bose SoundSport are not the most stable of the Bose earbud designs since they are truly wireless and a bit heavier than most. This means if you don't get the right tip size for your ear these headphones will be considerably less stable than the SoundSport In-Ear or the SoundTrue ultra In-Ear. On the upside when you have the right fit, Bose SoundSport are stable enough for running and working out at the gym. This device has a disappointing control scheme. SoundSport has physical buttons that provide all the essential functions: call/music, track-skipping, volume controls, and a dedicated pairing/Bluetooth button. Unfortunately, the buttons on SoundSport are very stiff, making them difficult to use. Turning the volume up is very difficult and had to remove the earbud from our ears to physically push on the button for it to work. However, you can just switch tracks or change the volume directly on your smartphone, which isn't always practical when working out and could be a deal-breaker for some.
Sound
The sound profile is surprisingly well-balanced, making it well-suited for a variety of genres.
Bass Mid
The bass accuracy of the SoundSport is excellent. You will find it Well-balanced and fairly smooth, the SoundSport Free's bass will be good for most genres of audio content. During the use of SoundSport, While the dip in the low-bass range will slightly muffle thumps and rumbles, the high-bass has a little bump, bringing a touch of warmth and fullness. It has remarkable mid accuracy. SoundSport's smooth, while the dip in the mid-mid range may slightly push vocals and leads to the back of the mix.
Isolation
The noise isolation of these earbuds is bad.
Noise Isolation Overall Leakage
The noise isolation of these earbuds is bad. Due to semi-open earbud design of SoundSport, the SoundSport Free won't reduce a lot of noise. SoundSport isn't a great choice if you're looking to block out low sounds like bus or plane engines. SoundSport are also pretty poor at reducing chatter in an office setting. This earbud of Bose has a good leakage performance. While your coworkers won't hear the words to whatever music you're blasting, they'll likely hear what's in the treble range, even in loud settings like a cafe, although it'll sound thin.
Microphone
The Bose SoundSport Free have an integrated microphone.
Battery
The Bose SoundSport Free has mediocre battery performance. SoundSport got a continuous battery life of just under 5 hours, which might not be enough to make it through your workday. Two additional charges in the case. They'll go into sleep mode after 20 minutes.
Connectivity
Bluetooth Wired
This earbud only connects to other devices via Bluetooth. SoundSport also doesn't support NFC or multi-device pairing. In comparison, their latency isn't too bad on Android or iOS, and some apps seem to compensate for this, so your mileage may vary in regular use. The SoundSport Free doesn't have a wired option.
Wireless Range Base/Dock
N/A. It has a charging case that delivers up to 10 hours of extra battery life. It charges using a USB connection. However, this case doesn't offer any inputs.
