Goofiest looking but beyond exceptional

TL/DR: Little funny looking and a touch expensive but you're getting more than your money's worth with sound quality, ease of use and stellar customer service. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So it's been a year and a half since I bought these headphones.... I am beyond blown away still. People tell me that they look hilarious in my ears but the sound... OMG, the sound is so amazing. I couldn't care less about how they look, they SOUND so impressive. So I am on my second pair now due to a battery issue which Bose addressed completely hassle free and with expediency to put Barry Allan to shame. Yes they are a little expensive but they are honestly a great set of headphones. You're also investing in incredible customer service from Bose. PROS: Great sound, easy to set up and use, beyond exceptional customer service. Package comes with multiple ear fittings and nice little zip case. CONS: They look goofy in my ears and the fit is a little odd. They are a little on the expensive side (worth every penny IMO)

Not sure how good this product is yet.

Worked well for three weeks and then suddenly stopped working. Could not hold a charge even after being on the charger overnight. Since it was still under 30 days I was able to get an exchange from the store. Best Buy did the exchange without hassle and under 5 minutes. Here’s hoping it was a fluke since I loved the product until it died......

  • from Brandon

High quality but with flaws

Positives: -Premium sound quality -Best battery life -Earbuds that won't leave your ears until you remove them Negatives: -No noise cancelling -No custimazation in the app -Wind sounds much louder when wearing outside Best to wait for a sale on these.

  • from Pierrefonds, QC

So far so good!

Replacing an old Ipod + Wired IN-Ear setup. After reading various reviews, was down between these and X3. Feedback generally positive for both and inconclusive with the versus review, as there are tons of advocates for both models. An other option was the Beats X however product page doesn't fully state they are water/sweat resistant--and I sweat tons so only reason these came off the list. Went with thhe Bose since they so happen to be discounted. My only hesitation was around the the size of the units 'buds', but as per reviews, can 100% state that they do not weigh down on your ears. They do stay in well and sound fantastic. No bluetooth dropouts as you'll seldom read with the X3 reviews. I can leave my phone in gym bag and pretty room around.

Bose Soundsport Wireless Headphones

These are one of the best sounding headphones i have ever used . My only complaint is the volume is not loud enough to drown out back ground noise . Perfect for quieter places not so much for a gym environment.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Constant Popping

Would not recommend. They're advertised as sport headphone but they constantly pop even when the phone is in your pocket and you're sitting down. No word from Bose on how to resolve this. Go for something else.

  • from Victoria, BC

Terrible Quality - don't buy

I got these for XMas this year. Within three weeks they died completely. I had to RMA them which took Bose over a month to replace. I finally received my new headphones and used them twice. They died 30 minutes in to my second run. In fairness, they do sound good. No problems there. But, at 250.00 for a something that only lasts a month or much less? Not worth it. Not by a long shot. Stay away from these at all costs

Bluetooth Connection

Purchased these Soundsport headphones to connect with my Apple Watch, which I received this past year. I wanted a set of Bluetooth Bose headsets so I could utilize these and connect directly with the Apple Watch, vice my I Phone. No problems with the connection, however, while conducting my morning walk I noticed that I had to move my watch on the same side as the controls on the Soundsport headset. Every time that I swung my left arm to the rear, I would lose connection, until my arm went forward again. Once I noticed this slight problem, the headsets worked excellent. I'm right handed so my watch is on my left wrist , it's a slight inconvenience moving the watch from one wrist to the other. These headsets are very clear and work well in any type of weather and would recommend these to anyone.

Great product

I recieved these as a Christmas gift and was pretty happy about it. Pros: - Looks good. Especially the black. - Great sound clarity. - Good range. - Fit nice and snug. - The different sized ear pieces really help find the right fit. Cons: - Their volume does not go very high. They get loud, but not "Monster Beats" loud. - 6 hours of battery life. You won't find any earbuds with more battery life, it is just something to consider with this type of hardware as you have to charge them every week. - As they stick out a bit they are not compatible with a lot of helmets. So if you wear a full face helmet then these likely won't work for you.

Exceptional ( Your review reading ends here )

Beautiful as always!! This is my 4th set of Bose headphones Second bluetooth pair others are Q35s I spend a lot of time in the gym 30 plus years and do many type of fighting sports So i can speak a fair bit about sport headphones . I just purchased the Jaybird X3s as well a week before these They sound decent but thats about all I can say The fit for me was really difficult I finally ended up only being able to use the expandable foam tips and no wings as no matter what size or configuration they just hurt like hell. The lack of control of advancing, pausing or backing up my tunes while training was dearly missed on the X3s. They are half the price and they do sound pretty good but if you rely on your music as a complete nessary tool when training well the soundsports wireless set is a must No word of a lie shut down the brain and stop reading the bazillion reviews I have just ended your misery. Buy them!!!! They are this good Cheers

  • from Grande Prairie, AB

Well worth the price

i have narrow ear canal and it’s almost impossible for me to find in ear phones that don’t hurt after half hour or so. i wear these at the gym in the morning and then during the day, i often forget i have them on. they sound GREAT. They work awesome for taking calls on my android phone. i recommend these highly.

  • from Moose Jaw, SK

Doesn’t fit, poor sound, no return policy on opened headphones at Best Buy

Large buds were too big, medium too small, feedback while talking was horrible. Most important, you are not allowed to return them.

Coudn't connect

After I got my super exciting new wireless earphones, ive use it really often for like two weeks. And it started to make weird noises and I have recharged it to try again. the sound came back but I couldn't connect on neither my iPad, iPhone or laptop. I was so frustrated I dont even know what to do now. so disappointed on bose this company.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Terrible build quality for a realiable brand!

After 3 months of use started to fall apart. I really wasn't expecting this from a reliable brand like Bose. Hopefully, I can get a replacement since is under the 1-year warranty.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Stopped working after 3 weeks

Love these head phones, Very upset they stopped working, the battery shows up full but they will not turn on, tried everything suggested on BOSE website and still nothing. Got a refund and not sure if i want to risk getting another pair, very disappointed in this product for this issue and no solution.

  • from Guelph, ON


Comfortable.Excellent sound actually amazing sound.Look to be well made.Not inexpensive but in life you get what you pay for.

Great - But Bulky

I bought these headphones on sale after reading lengthy reviews on the net. No there not the cheapest, but you do get a lot of features. Ease of use is good and getting synced with my iphone was a breeze with the Bose app. The app is is very good , it lets do a lot of things to control the features on the headphones. I use the same app to control my QC35 headphones. Once you learn how to insert the headphones into your ears, it becomes a breeze to use. The design is unique and ingenious. They are however bulky and you will always notice them. In fact you will look kinda geeky wearing them . its kinda of like those bluethooth wireless earpieces they use to make for the cell phones. There is no issue with connectivity when I workout , but when I cut the lawn I get these annoying popping sounds. Oh well, winters coming and I wont have to cut the lawn anymore :)

  • from Calgary

Bluetooth no connection

Really was looking forward to trying these headphones out, but after several attempts I couldn't connect at all. Very disappointed and will not be buying a Bose product again.

  • from Ladysmith, BC

One word....superb!!

Finally fed up of constantly battling with my regular 'wired' sport headphones, I decided to take the plunge and go wireless. After extensive web-trawling and comparisons including much review reading, I opted for the Bose Sounsport wireless....and I don't regret it one bit. Yes, they are a little pricey but in this instance (as with any Bose item) you definitely get what you pay for. Being a triathlete I spend many hours on the bike and running accompanied by my music. And having used these headphones a few times for each, I am now kicking myself for not making the wireless switch sooner. The sound quality is excellent, with crystal clear highs and hugely impressive bass (let's not forget these are relatively small in-ear headphones), and even when riding at high speed the sound is still bang on. The fit is also great and they feel very secure, especially when running. The only small gripe I have with the fit (and it really is just a small gripe), is that I find when I'm sweating quite heavily the earpieces do occasionally feel like they're slipping round in my ears. As I said, this is only a small gripe and certainly something I can live with. The battery life seems reasonable. I've used them on a couple of 2 hour rides and they still have approximately 30-40% battery power left. I think for any rides over 3 hours I may have to revert to my wired headphones, but again, this is something that isn't really too much of a concern to me. There are one or two other little 'issues I have but in all honesty, they are so trivial and may just be particular to me that I'm not gonna bother putting them in this review. In summary, these are very very good wireless headphones and I fully recommend them.

Best Bluetooth earbuds

I want to give a shout to the sales associate Ajay for helping me out. These earbuds are the best. I had power beats and they sucked. Soundtrue ultra were my first pair and they broke. Ajay recommended me these and they are great.

  • from brampton


great headphones

The Best 5 on 5

The best I have used. The bass is unequalled. Great for speaking on phone as well. They also fit very well in the ears as compared to others I have used.

  • from Dollard-des-ormeaux, QC


Just got the soundsports today and got to use them while working out on several cardio machines. The sound is outstanding - much clearer and more range and base then my jaybird X3's. The fit is also better and stays on better while working out. Great design and performance by Bose - highly recommended !

Best headphones I used

I have had a variety of wired and wireless headphones. These are excellent for music listening as well as a phone headset. I have been told that they are clear when on calls. Some couldn't even tell it was a headset. Would buy these again.

  • from Toronto, ON

best in category

Very happy to endorse this product since I've now been dissatisfied with Power Beats 3, JBL reflect and others. Bose wins by a mile on sound quality, connectivity, comfort and reliability

Best Wireless Sport Headphone Option Out There

As someone with tiny ears and ear canals, finding headphones that'll actually fit in my ears is very difficult, never mind finding a pair that are wireless, and then to top it off a pair that'll work while I'm exercising. Originally, I'd received a pair of Jaybird Freedoms for Christmas - unfortunately I was not able to get a good fit no matter how hard I tried. I decided to give the Bose ones a try and I am so glad that I did. My Bose headphones fit into my tiny ears perfectly and I'm able to do whatever exercise I'd like. I've used them to run, do burpees, jumping jacks, battle ropes, as well as lifting weights, and they won't budge. The sound on these headphones is better than anything that I've used, and that includes wired headphones. Sound is crisp and clear and the bass is rich and deep. Because I've only had them for about a week, I can't speak to the durability of this product but I expect it to be perfectly fine. So far they seem great and they've been able to withstand some pretty sweaty workouts. They're super comfortable but they do look a little bulky; thankfully, they don't feel that way at all. They're light and the inline mic, volume control and music toggle doesn't flop around or loosen the headphones while they're in your ears. Pairing them with my iPhone was a breeze. Overall I'm very pleased with them and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these to anyone, especially people who have had trouble finding a good, comfortable fit with other competitors. These won't disappoint!

  • from Edmonton, AB

Great wireless earbud!

Aside from being very large ,...I find these easy to pair up to anything Bluetooth, the sounds fantastic...Better than the Apple wireless earbuds by far!

  • from Niagara Falls, ON

Average headphones- definitely not worth their price

Low volume. These don't get loud at all.

  • from Vancouver

Game changer

Excellent sound quality (better than beats by dre) Quick and easy Bluetooth detection and activation. Fits comfortably in my ears and stays put while working out. Weather and sweat proof and 6 hours of battery life. Gym game changer!!

  • from Toronto, ON

Bose quality you can trust

I have been looking for a good quality bluetooth headset for quite some time now. I decided to go with Bose after trying my relative's pair and was amazed with the sound quality, clarity, base. Everything about these headphones is amazing. Used them for 2 hours straight and ha not connectivity issues at all. Firmware is updatable through the Bose connect app. Will recommend to all.

  • from Kamloops

Bose SoundSport

Great for walking and cleaning house. Great sound. No issues, and I had for a month so far.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great Sound but Poor Ear Alignment

These earphones produce great sound quality - much better than Beats. Unfortunately, for me, they don't remain in my ear when I'm running so they don't work for me. In my opinion, in terms of mobility they work just like regular ear buds. Therefore I went back to the Powerbeats wireless, which have the complete ear hook that fits around the entire ear.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Overpriced, so-so quality

Sound quality just like any headphone/earphone. No extra bass. Ear buds a poor fit. The installed medium size buds were too big and caused ear pain. The small buds were too small and kept falling out. There's definitely no noise isolation/cancellation, so background noise could be heard. This product is overpriced for its mediocre quality. Looks like you're paying for the name.

  • from Dawson Creek, BC

Good for less than 2 months

Was really impressed with the sound of these headphones. Excellent bass. Had them for less than 2 months and then they quit working. Now fighting with Bose to get warranty out of them.

  • from Toronto, ON

Bose name is well deserved

I've been using Bose earbuds for several years now. The only thing that made me hesitate this time around was the price. So I did some research and decided to go with another brand which reviewers say are pretty good for all-round use and sound quality, and was about 50 bucks cheaper. Boy, was I disappointed with my other choice. The most important thing about these ones are they STAY in your ear. By doing so, you get the full sound these buds offer. And they are night and day compared to the other brand I tried out. (They were the JayBirds, but not sure if I'm allowed to say that.) The sound literally blew me away and this was already from using the QC 20s as my main earphones. Bose's sound quality simply cannot be matched by other ones in this price range. Now I just have to pawn off my other ones to someone else.

  • from Guelph, ON

I wear these every day

I love these wireless earbuds by Bose. Quality in sound and engineering. The battery lasts for hours, can't remember how long they last but its a long time.. maybe 6 hours? I work at a factory and i use them as earplugs with them being off. Reduces a lot of outside noise. it's perfect, best out there.

  • from White Rock, BC

Cannot go wrong with Bose

I tried JLab Audio Epic BT headphones and went through two defective pairs....then bought these. Bose may not be the best "deal", but you just cannot go wrong with them. Full surround sound system, bluetooth speakers, bluetooth headphones.....they are just good every time.

  • from Toronto, ON

Good, but could be better!

This headphones offer amazing audio just as all Bose Audio products. Very very well balanced sound ! Everything about these headphones is great except for one thing. They are not good for biking, or being in the wind. When the wind it against your face the sound of wind drowns out the music, unless the music is played really loud. If Bose could make the Earphones slightly smaller, maybe like their wired Earphones they would be the perfect pair.

  • from Alberta

Not Sweatproof

Bought these at a Canadian Best Buy store in late June/16 and they failed two weeks later when I was working out. I started hearing a crackling sound in one of the ear buds, probably due to moisture penetrating it. The sound stopped completely after a few minutes and I was unable to get the unit to work after that. Tried charging it but that did not help. Contacted Bose and they will be sending me a replacement set. From the tone of their email, it appeared that they acknowledge that the initial units were somewhat defective. I will have to wait until late August for these since it appears they need time to produce a sturdier product. They also offered to send me a wired set of SoundSport earphones in the meantime.

  • from Montreal

Not reliable

Excellent sound, ability to pair two devices at the same time and the switch is flawless. The headset is quite large outside the ear compare to other bluetooth products. Unfortunately after 5 runs (No rain) all the headset buttons stops working. Bose customer service very poor. I would not recommend the purchase of the headset.

  • from Toronto, ON

surprisingly good

I bought these for my every day commute and workouts. - good sound - they stay put, didn't shift at all during an hour run. - the controls with an iphone work same as iphone controls - perfect cord length I would recommend these
