What Hi-Fi

Impressive features and impressive sound

The true wireless in-ear headphone market is booming at the moment, and the Bose SoundSport Free are good enough to give the very best a run for their money. They sound great and their array of features puts some rivals to shame.

Easy to like, but…

from Pickr

Without doubt, the Bose SoundSport Free are the best fitness earphones we’ve ever heard. They just sound so good, and have the right amount of everything. But that design needs work, as does the battery box, and both let down the package, resulting in a wireless earphone that sounds spectacular, but is impossible to carry comfortably.

The SoundSport Free are Bose's first attempt at a truly wireless pair of earphones and honestly, it shows. The earphones and case are physically too large, the buttons are frustrating to use, the voice calls only work in one ear, and the battery life isn't fantastic considering the size of the case, nor do they charge quickly. There are also audio sync issues with the YouTube app.

The Bose SoundSport Free are surprisingly good-sounding truly wireless earbuds. They have a comfortable earbud fit with a semi-open design for outdoor runners, but this also makes them a bit worse for commuting since they do not block a lot of noise. Unfortunately, they are a lot bulkier than other truly wireless headphones we've tested, they have a few bugs with their wireless connection and no customization option with their app.

Breaking the chains

The SoundSport Free delivers impressive sound that's full of depth and clarity. There's plenty to like here if you're in the market for truly wireless workout earbuds.

Sound Guys

Jack of all trades

from Sound Guys

They supply a great fit but have a bulky look; they get loud but don't reproduce thumping bass;, and they pair quickly but struggle with stability. As far as true wireless are concerned, they're one of the best options on the market, thanks to their ability to do everything well enough; though, there's ample room for improvement.

Digital Trends

A solid first entry into the fully wireless headphone market

from Digital Trends

With five hours of battery life, limited waterproofing, and good sound, the Bose SoundSport Free are a well-made entry into the fully wireless headphone market – especially if you’re a bass lover. Still, you can get better fully wireless headphones for cheaper.

Might be worth busting your bank account for these

from Wired

If you love amazing sound quality, comfort, and convenience, the Bose SoundSport Free are worth a look. I finally understand why people can be convinced to pay so much for these things.

Good sound, but AirPods are better value

from Mashable

Bose's SoundSport Free wireless earbuds sound better than AirPods, but the design, poorer battery life, and higher price translate into a poor AirPods substitute.

Princely, Pricey Sound

from TechPP

If you are chasing sound quality above everything else in a “truly” wireless form factor, we guess they are a very good option. They might not possess noise cancellation but they more than compensate with that typically soft and yet surprisingly clear sound that is the Bose trademark.
