It’s crazy to think that only a few years ago, it was a given that if you wanted to listen to music when you exercised, you’d have to deal with annoying wires. There was nothing more irritating than when your headphone cord was yanked out of your phone when running, or your earbuds fell out while doing burpees. Plus, there was the whole dilemma of ‘what am I going to do with my phone while I’m lifting weights?‘ Oh, how times have changed! Now, wireless headphones have become so popular that iPhones don’t even have traditional headphone jacks anymore.
That said, when it comes to working out, not all wireless earphones are created equal. You need something comfortable that’s not going to fall out, with sound that’s high quality enough to drown out of the sound of gym bros grunting. Oh, and strong Bluetooth connectivity always helps, too! And it just so happens that there’s a new pair of headphones on the market that ticks all the right boxes. Enter, the Bose SoundSport Free wireless headphones.
While wireless overhead headphones are now quite widespread, nobody’s really mastered wireless in-ear buds yet…until now! Bose has left no stone unturned when it comes to perfecting the minute details of these bad boys. From tuning the circuits for improved sound to tweaking the antenna position for maximum Bluetooth signal strength, they’ve created headphones that fit comfortably and play consistently. The buds have been engineered with StayHear+ Sport tips to spread contact evenly around the inside of your ear, while the fin conforms naturally to the shape of the upper ridge of your ear. The headphones are also sweat, rain (and excuse!) proof, using a water-repellent mesh to withstand the elements.
Off a single charge, the earbuds play for up to five hours and come with a case that provides two additional full charges (or up to 10 hours of battery life) to keep them ready to go again. Plus, a quick 15-minute charge will give you 45 minutes of battery life. Oh, and they’re even found a way to deal with one of the annoying things about bud earphones—constantly losing them. The Bose Connect app helps you track them if they’ve been misplaced!
Yep, they’re the ultimate wireless earphones for the gym and beyond—and TBH, we didn’t know what we did before we had them in our lives. You can shop the Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Earphones here.
