Apple was highly criticized when it launched the iPhone 7 Plus with a small headphone jack. The decision of the company to remove the analog port is still debatable as in form of truly wireless earphones, Apple has sparked an entirely new segment of audio products. The big brands like Jabra and Sony already have the truly wireless earphones in their portfolios. And, the new company that is joining this league of wireless earphones is Bose. Bose announced the SoundSport recently in India.
Soundsport free has some advantages over the Airpods as the buds fit more securely. It is very difficult for some people to run with Airpods but on the other hand, Soundsport is very comfortable while running too.
There is no remote to control the volumes as all the control buttons are integrated into the buds themselves. The size of the buttons is a bit small but they work very well. You can use your fingernail to easily use the buttons.
The sound quality of the Bose SoundSport is way better than Airpods and Jabra Elite. Compared to these, SoundSport has more base and richer sound overall. If you are in the quiet room, then bass can sound a little bloated. But when you walk outside, the bass sounds toned down. The reason behind it is that it competes with ambient noise. In the noiser indoor environments, it sounds a little better than the Jaybird Run.
Bose Soundsport Review
Design and Comfort
When it comes to the design, wireless earphones are the one who does not win many laurels. Same is happened with the Bose SoundSport Free. The color scheme of this earphone is just like a fancy sports car. The body is of a Subaru minivan. Bose SoundSport earphones are chunky as well as protrude outwards a bit. Because of such design, you can’t sleep with these as it will bite your ears quite a lot.
SoundSport earphones are sweat-resistant. It has IPX4 water resistance rating. It is not fully waterproof.
There is a perception due to the small size of wireless earphones that these are easy to lose. And, that’s true. For that, Bose launched a new feature “Find My Buds” on the Bose Connect App. It displays the place and last time when these were used.
Sound and Performance
SoundSport is the best sounding pair. The earbuds offer a lot of details in the highs and mids. Because of the versatile nature of these earphones, listening with these is so much fun. The sounds are crystal clear.
The soundstage of the SoundSport is the widest on a pair of earphones. These earphones deliver a clean sound output by separating different instruments from one another. All earphones come without the active noise canceling feature so in SoundSport to block out the outside noise, ear tips are provided to form a satisfactory seal. In addition, the earphone gets loud a lot, so if you want to subdue environmental noise, you can do that by increasing the volume.
The price of SoundSport earphone in India is Rs. 18999. So, if you afford it, just go for these earphones as they will not disappoint you.
