“I am a runner and have used a few different brands of wireless earbuds and the Bose by far have the best sound quality and snug fit in my ear. The only issue I have had while working out is the bulkiness of the volume/charge port - it is so large that it makes the earbuds almost feel "heavy." If I am doing things around the house with the earbuds in, I usually just use one instead of both so I can hear other things around the house and if I am not using the side with the volume control, the earbud falls out constantly because of weight.

The battery life is good and lasts throughout my workouts with no problem. I have had it connected to an iPhone 7 and as a plus (for me, anyway) these do not drain the battery on my phone! I have had others that make my battery on my phone drain so fast that I cannot go on long runs but I have not had that issue with the Bose!

Connecting them to my phone was simple and easy with zero issues.

There are 3 sets of rubber ear pieces so you can get the right fit and the handy travel case makes them easy to transport and find in a gym bag.

All in all, I think these are great headphones for lifting weights, running or doing things around the house without compromising sound quality.”

“If you are looking for a headphones specific for workouts, this is the best. The connection is solid and sound is crisp and great. It is able to withstand heavy sweating. The reason for giving one star less is because it is not loud especially in a crowded gym. Also you cannot adjust the length of the wire and sometimes gets stuck around the neck”

“I have purchased these headphones numerous times because they are THAT GOOD. They fit comfortably in my ear. They last a long time between charges (I use them intermittently throughout the day for long sessions and charge them every 2-3 days). When they do run out of battery, i can charge them for 30 minutes and have about 50 percent battery life which lasts me the whole day and more. I use them to run and workout and they always stay in my ear. I like that I can dangle them around my neck when not in use. Other headphones I have tried seem to break more frequently than these. They are great quality and come with a carrying case.”

“Sound ok, but fail at their primary purpose-staying in my ears during workout. I really wanted to like these, but I cannot get them to stay in my ears while running, and even more irritating, while on my stationary bike. I tried the various supplied inserts, but none work. Will be returning and getting headphones with over the ear clips.”

“I've always been a fan of Bose products so I was eager to try the wireless set. Mainly needed it for the workouts and other "hands free" activities so the soundsport were perfect. I like that it has the cord connected and a little clip to attach to your clothing so there's no chance of losing it. You still get the same quality sound as any other Bose product. They included 3 different sizes for the earbuds. Haven't experienced it falling out of my ears which is a plus. It also tells you the percentage of battery you have so you can always monitor the usage. The only negative thing I would say is when I used it for phone calls, the person on the receiving end can hear every little thing around me before they can hear me. So any surrounding noise (which really doesn't even have to be loud) can be picked up like as if I'm trying to talk over the other noise. I don't know if there's a way to change the "sensitivity" setting but it's still a great pair of headphones. I mostly use it for my music.”

“Love love using my bose soundsport wireless earbuds in the gym or when running/walking/errands. I think I got it for less than 100$ at time of purchase. My ear is weird with in ear buds, so when i tried this, i wasnt sure if it was going to work but it did. Never fell off when doing hard core workouts or when i'm sweaty. The sound coming out was A+ too. Bose did us a solid with this product. If there was a con, I wish they had included some sort of noise cancelling to it. It does get a little loud in the gym. Other than that, great product for the price.”

“Bose sport are the best...not only do they allow you to speak and hear clearly, but the individual in the other end hears you very well and not muffled when using hands free... they also play music wonderfully clear, and at a gentle touch you can give clear and concise commands...”

“Picked these up because I was tired of using corded headphones attached to my iPod Shuffle in my pocket while working out. Wanted something that wouldn't get in my way and feel like I barely had them on. These work perfectly for working out. They don't slip in my ears and stay in place even through the toughest workouts. Plus the sound quality is amazing! I now use these connected by bluetooth (obviously) to my phone (Samsung Galaxy) with Spotify to workout and is how I should have been working out all along. The phone can be a little "cumbersome" to walk around with but it's not the end of the world. Thinking about getting an iPod Nano which is bluebooth as well to replace my phone at some point. Regardless, I would definitely spend the extra money and buy these if your looking for quality earphones. They do stick out a little far from your ear but they don't make you look ridiculous (if that's what you are concerned about while working out......). They battery life could be a little better but honestly, if your working out for longer than 6 hours a day.....holy smokes....You won't regret this purchase.”

“Like others, I was skeptical about buying these but I have owned a similar pair before and had a good experience. I normally like to try before I buy but with the COVID pandemic sweeping the world I could not. I normally buy over the ear headphones but I wanted something different. These are pretty amazing so far. I had them about a week and ran about 3 miles and did some push-ups and various abe workouts. They stayed in place the whole time. Sometimes they felt like they were going to come out but when I touched them they were very secure in my ear. Very happy with these so far and recommend for exercising.”

“Very disappointed with this product and, consequently, with Bose. I've always been true to the brand, mainly because of its standard of quality and durability, but it seems now that these features are no longer part of Bose's values. After a little less than 1 year and a half from the purchase of this product, the ear headphones began to show problems in almost all parts: the logo of one of the sides fell; the rubber that surrounds the right side has unglued and therefore the on/off button that is also wrapped by that rubber is taking off and should drop at any time. Turning on and off has since then been a matter of luck; also the rubber that seals the volume control has unglued, but with that I had less luck: I cannot increase or decrease the volume in any way.

Well .... I took the product to an authorized dealer and I was informed that Bose does not repair this type of phone (or headphones in general?), Then, as it is no longer in the warranty, what they can do for me is to give a discount of something between 20 to 25% when buying a new product.

So, if you spend 150 dollars + taxes on this product, and in less than a year and a half you have to spend almost the same thing to get a new one, is as bad choice. Go in search of other brands that offer wonderful products for similar prices.”

The above are some real user reviews of Bose Sound Sport wireless earbuds. Generally speaking, this earbud is loved by many users because of it is suitable for workout. However, some users think that the earbuds are not comfortable and stable enough to wear and the waterproof level is not high enough.There are many workout headphones with comfortable and stable wearing and high waterproof grade in the market, and bone conduction headphones are one of the most popular ones. Therefore, you can find headphones with similar performance to Bose Sound Sport wireless earbuds, such as Wissonly Hi Runner bone conduction headphones with IPX8 waterproof.

Do you know "bone conduction headphones"? Common headphones such as "ear canal type" and "inner ear type" are headphones that transmit sound by vibrating the eardrum by inserting the headphone into the ear hole. Bone conduction headphones, on the other hand, transmit sound by vibrating bone and cartilage instead of the eardrum. So you can hear without blocking your ear canal.

Wissonly's core team is a team engaged in the research and development of bone conduction products earlier. They have accumulated 10 years' technology in this field. They have adopted the best acoustic laboratory in the Eastern Hemisphere for sound adjustment. Wissonly Hi Runner has good technical solutions to the problems of sound leakage, sound quality and waterproof of pseudo-bone conduction headphones.

Hi Runner adopts an open-ear design, and its special working principle, the sound quality is not as good as that of noise-reducing headphones.However, Wissonly Hi Runner's design is completely unappealing, which reduces the damage to the eardrum and protects the ear to the maximum extent, and it can keep the ear canal clean and hygienic. This is a healthy and hygienic earphone. Its open-ear design also allows you to easily hear the sound of cars and traffic lights in outdoor sports scenes such as running and walking, making you safer when using.

Wissonly Hi Runneradopts integrated molding technology, with no holes in the headphones’ body and it is no splicing, which realizes IPX8 waterproof, and can be used for swimming and bathing. Even in the depth of 20 meters, diving is no problem.It also has 32G of built-in memory, which can store 5000 songs. You can use it as amp3 player when you don't have a mobile phone.

In a word, wissonly hi runner is a product with powerful functions, stable technology and high cost performance.
