In this article, I will be reviewing the truly wireless Bose Soundsport Free headphones. A unique pair of earbuds created to take wires out of the equation, give tremendous sound quality and are designed for training. I will be reviewing this product through a durability, performance and appearance rating. I will then end off with my closing remarks.
These headphones are made of a hard plastic with a lighter plastic case. The buttons feel solid without wiggle and I have never had any cracks on the headphones or case when they are dropped.
They have an extremely solid feel to them and do not show any signs of breaking down. The air tip attachment for your ears also feel thick enough to be durable but have a light and comfortable feel. All in all, these headphones have clearly been made with quality in mind, and I can see the price tag matching this.
With this being said, I give these headphones a 10/10 on durability. The case is as solid as it needs to be to provide protection without being too heavy. While the earbuds have a sturdy feel to them with what seems like a high-quality construction in the sense of the buttons, air tips, air tip attachment point and overall!
Performance is huge, it is the reason why anyone decides to purchase a product. Before we can asses performance we need to know what objective we want the product to fill. With these headphones in particular, we are looking for a secure fit, great sound quality and proper connectivity and playing. Let’s talk about the details!
As for the secure fit, the headphones are quite heavy and do stick out of your ear. However, with the solid design of the air tips as well as the different sizes, they will certainly stay snug in your ear. They do all of this while providing great comfort. As long as you have/pick the right size air tip, you should have no problem with the fit of these earbuds.
As for sound quality, you would expect nothing less than excellence from a brand like Bose. Having used these headphones, they certainly blow the Airpods out of the water. They have a crisp base and play plenty loud for your workouts. With that being said, the base could be made to be a little more crisp, however, it is tough to ask for everything when talking about truly wireless earbuds.
For the last area of critique, we have the connectivity of these headphones. Overall, you notice a smooth playing and quality connection. If you pay attention, you will be able to tell from time to time that it does crack in the middle of a song. With that being said, these cracks are highly infrequent and are very brief.
All in all, I would give these headphones an 8.5/10 on performance. With the only real room for improvement coming from a slightly crisper base and a little better connectivity.
When wearing headphones, and especially ones with a hefty price tag, you want them to look great while you are wearing them. In this section of the article, we will be looking at the case, earbuds and overall look of the product.
I do find the case to be quite bulky. This takes up space and doesn’t look the sleekest. However, most of the time you are not worried about the look of your case, as long as they charge and protect the earbuds. So that isn’t a big deal.
The earbuds themselves have very nice colours and the air tips look sharp. I do find them to be slightly bulky, with being able to notice them sticking out significantly in mind. However, this is subjective and I have noticed I got used to this look to the point where I think they look fine. This will depend upon you, however.
Overall, these headphones do have a bulky appearance to them, however, it isn’t so bad to be a reason not to purchase. I give these headphones an 8/10 on appearance simply from the desire for a more sleek design.
All in all, the Bose SoundSport Free truly wireless headphones are constructed with durability in mind, stay snug in the ear, sound great and connect well. The appearance is slightly bulky, however, it is something most people will be able to get over. These are definitely a solid pair of headphones to train with!
