“Does great for workouts, connecting to other devices like TVs, and zoning out environmental noises. Battery life is much better than the predecessor and the case helps and charges within 1-2hrs.
Usage for phone calls is terrible and people always say that they cannot hear me. I frequently connect and reconnect to resync with phone calls. To be honest this is a bose issue as i had this issue with previous headphones.
Headphones stay in ear and fit comfortably. Buy if discounted and need a good set for working out.”

“I love these IEMs. They have the Bose sound profile, which is slightly heavy on bass but overall a great sound stage. I often find myself enjoying songs more listening with these. I've owned MW40s, Sennheiser IE80s, and several over ear audiophile headphones. One of the only downsides with these IEMs is the fit... and it's odd, one ear fits perfect and snug while the other not so much, I wish there was a slightly more snug fit, but, overall, these headphones stay in place, are super light, produce great sound, stay connected and last long enough for any workout(roughly 4 hours on a charge). Highly recommend.”

“Presentation of the box is a straight forward dive in. What is in the Box? The manuals and USB type C three inch cable. Different size eartips small, medium and large. I am 5"9 mediums fit me the best. When I put in the earbuds for the first time a mythemic symphony welcomes you to its orchestra. These Bose Sport Earbuds sound great. The audio levels are dynamically balanced very well there is noticeable bass just enough of it to enjoy my music. I typically listen artists such as Sam Smith, Ha Anh Tuan, My Tam and Dan+ Shay. All music continued to impress the fidelity that each track had. I currently havc Samsung Icon X, Sony WI-SP800N, Jaybird Vista and the Bose Sport Earbuds sound a lot better than the other brands. I always loved the Jaybird Vista for its comfortable wingtips, I can say that these Bose Sport Earbuds stay in my ear when I am doing backflips.
The Pros: I can use either earbud and the music will continue to play. Battery life is really good I will update on this on how many hours on a single charge before needing to recharge in the dock.
Cons: I cannot get the double tap to play and pause properly. It sometimes work and most of the time it does nothing. My two mobile phones that I use are Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact and Iphone XR, both devices had this same issue. Maybe a software is in the works to fix this.”

“I LOVE THESE EARBUDS!! I am a very active male adult. I have researched tru wireless earbuds for several years now and have watched the evolution closely. I am also a professional musician and have had Bose speakers in my arsenal in the past and know they are top quality. When I finally pulled the trigger on a pair of tru wireless earbuds, Bose hadn't come out with an option yet so I purchased a set from a reputable company with great reviews. I did enjoy them and the sound was good. My main concern was keeping them in my ears. I run, bike, crossfit, lift, hit the heavy bag, etc. I found the pair would come out during the heavy bag workout and started coming out during runs. One day one bud stopped working. The company replaced the earbuds with no problem and that was great. My new pair still had the issue with staying in and after a couple years one of the backs just fell off. The company said they needed to investigate the claim so not knowing how long that would take, I went ahead and purchased this set of Bose tru wireless earbuds that I had been looking at for some time. I got my Bose earbuds, tried them out, and I wish I could have gotten these from the get go. These earbuds are so comfortable and indeed stay in. They sound AMAZING!!! I literally wish I could wear them all the time. They look great and I love that they block out the outside noise. The touch controls are awesome and easy to set up. The only thing I have any issue with is the syncing. Sometimes the right earbud wont sync out of the case so I have to put it back in the case, shut it, open it, and then it usually syncs the second time. I fully expect to enjoy these buds for a long time to come.”

“Sound and functionality on these are great, when they work.
Then there are the times when you get ready for your workout, get all geared up, put the earphones in, and nothing. Connection gone, for no reason. Then try to follow the steps to reconnect and there's no rhyme or reason to when they decide to reconnect. So you workout with no music, or you spend the next 30 mintues trying to fix something that may or may not be fixed and delay your workout.”

“I needed a pair of Bluetooth earbuds for workouts, general walking around, etc. My over the ear ones are my go to's but unpractical in a fair amount of situations. After reading a number of reviews these ones came out on top and thus far have excelled in almost every area.
I'm not one to listen to music loud, I prefer quality over volume and these deliver. Coming from Bose that's no surprise. The noise seal / cancellation is good, I would rather be a bit more aware when doing activities than have everything drowned out. They don't slip out of my ear unless I'm doing something really physical like burpee's and I wouldn't recommend doing parkour with them, ha. The multi sized ear clips are great, I actually have the biggest in one ear and a medium in the other for a stellar fit.
After a few weeks, my only gripe is when taking phone calls outside. If there is even A LITTLE ambient noise, the person on the other end of the call is flooded with it. From a prius passing to a slight breeze, it picks up everything. Inside, you're fine and they work great if you're in your home. But if you're at a mall or a busy coffee shop? You're better off just taking one out and using your phone. It's the only reason these didn't get five stars.”

“I refused to be dragged into the latest Apple craze. I've begun to sour on the quality of its products, while still admiring its security within its technology. In short, the price tag is far too high. And then, did I really want white earbuds. I'm a dark-skinned Black women. I really didn't like the white wired earbuds from Apple, but they were free so I didn't complain. It was now time to shop around for reasonably priced, well constructed and reliable wireless earbuds. I've had wired Bose earbuds in the past, and I thought I'd give them another try. I opted for the black ones because they aren't so obvious and are at a lower risk of getting stolen on the streets of NYC (where a good friend of mine had his snatched in a pretty affluent neighborhood). I purchased them for my morning walks, where I play a wide variety of music. The sound is amazing. I've become so fond of them that I've even started wearing them to make calls and listen to movies on my phone and iPad. The only small challenge is battery life. I often feel like I have to keep charging them. Knowing that I may run low on battery life (I'm on the phone for work non-stop while working from home), I usually keep them in their handy charging case which provides a quick charge without having to be charged itself. A clever feature. It's taking some time to get used to answering calls by swiping the right earbud. One day I'll get the hang of it. I highly recommend for workouts. Again, the music sounds incredible.”

“I have Bose headphones that I love and I was ready to spend more since I lost my cheap $20 tozo earbuds. I was really hoping these would be the ones but they are difficult to get into my ears and then when they are in and I need to adjust them it sets off the Google assistant which makes a really loud sound that hurts my ears or pauses my audio. I had to turn off Google assistant but I still want something that feels secure in my ears so I don't have to keep messing with them while running. They also randomly have the audio stop on one of the earbuds if there is an add on YouTube so it's disjointed for a second.”

“These earbuds are everything I was looking for! I was upgrading from AirPod pros that my wife accidentally ran thru the washing machine LOL. I did a ton of research, and watched various earbud reviews on YouTube before settling on these. Granted, there are a lot of haters out there for these buds. I was borderline about to buy the Bose QuietComforts buy at the last minute I decided that these were the right choice based on price, size and functionality that I was looking for.
Man, am I glad I went with these!! Compared to what some reviewers say, the sound is PERFECT!! Bass is great, but not overpowering. Mids & highs sound crisp and clear. WAY better sound than the AirPod pros, and also better than the previous SoundSport version. Ppl cry about there being no equalizer, but I use Spotify which has a built in equalizer - problem solved. They stay in your ears perfectly. They are light weight and not too big. The functionality to change track, change volume, etc is perfectly sufficient for me. I am SO glad I went with these and ignored the overly critical reviews. To me, for what I use these for (workouts, cardio) these are the perfect headphone IMO. Thank you Bose!”

“I was excited to find some earbuds that held up to profuse sweating during rigorous workouts. However, no matter what size adapter I try, these slip out of my ears repeatedly after about 20 minutes of working out. If you’re just planning on using them to walk and you are not planning on being sweaty, they will probably stay in your ears fine. Another problem is that one or both pods will lose connection or stop playing randomly and without explanation. This happened again today while I was cutting the grass and I had to completely stop, put them back in the case, close the case for 30 seconds and then put them back in. They started working again until about the last five minutes of grass cutting when I finally just said, forget it. Again, when these are working, the sound quality is excellent. They do need to improve the microphone system because talking on the phone with these in is just about impossible for the other person to hear.”
The above is the real user review of Bose Sport Earbuds Generally speaking, it is a good completely wireless headphone, but its disadvantages are obvious. After all, it is an in-ear earbuds，wearing it for a long time will still cause discomfort to the ears, not to mention using it in workouts,and its price is expensive. Therefore, if you want a comfortable wearing experience, Wissonly Hi Runner sports bone conduction headphone with open ear design and high cost performance are recommended.
I noticed Wissonly bone conduction headphones when they were first crowdfunded online. And later, I saw that some otologists were recommending them on online forums, so I bought them. This Hi Runner is their flagship product whose overall functionality is also the most perfect. The headphone use the latest research from the Wissonly lab. It increases the vibrating area of the vibrator by 35% and optimizes the direction of sound transmission to make the sound more concentrated, resulting in a wider range and more spatial of the music. The brand claims that its sound quality is HI-FI level, and I actually tested it myself. I thought that the sound quality was very close to HI-FI level, but it did not reach this level. Of course, the current sound quality is satisfactory enough.
The Wissonly Hi Runner bone conduction headphone has both Bluetooth and built-in storage playback modes. The new Bluetooth 5.0 chip has stronger anti-interference ability, which can easily cope with a variety of complex outdoor scenes and ensure that the good mood during sports is not interfered with by broken lines. At the same time, the stable connection also brings low latency performance, listening to music, watching TV, playing games are no problem. What's more, they have 32 gigabytes of internal memory, which can store 5,000 songs.
In terms of fit and comfort, the whole frame of Wissonly Hi Runner is made of adjustable aviation grade titanium steel, which can adapt to different sizes of head circumference and ensure the stability of wearing. Its earphone surface is made of high-tech low-sensitivity silicone material, which contains no chemical components to avoid allergic phenomena. The overall touch of the headphone is as silky as baby's skin, avoiding uncomfortable situations when worn for a long time. Moreover, its weight is very light, less than 30g, and it will not feel heavy when worn. The open-ear design makes it safer to use outdoors because you can easily hear the sounds around you.
The waterproof of the Wissonly Hi Runner deserves special mention, and it is IPX8 grade. It means that you can carry it underwater for up to 20 meters and still use it normally, which is crazy!
