Our take on the Bose® SoundSport® wireless headphones by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Much-loved Bose® workout headphones — now wireless
The Bose SoundSport Wireless headphones play music wirelessly and stay in place as you move.
Bose makes some of the most popular fitness and running earbuds we offer. The SoundSport® Wireless are their first pair with built-in Bluetooth®. I tried them out and can tell you they fit as comfortably and securely as their wired predecessors. They also bring the bass you need to keep moving. And since music plays wirelessly from your phone, there's no connecting cord in the way of your workout.
Trying them out in the gym
I took the Bose® SoundSport® wireless headphones for a spin on the exercise bike. Winged loops kept them in place as I moved, and I quickly got used to the super-soft earbuds. They don't feel like they're sticking deep into your ear, more like resting in place.
For me, catching up on TV shows makes cardio more bearable. I wasn't sure if streaming Veep on my phone over Bluetooth would cause audio/video sync issues. But no problem here! The snappy, snarky back-and-forth between characters came fast and furious, without any lag between the video and audio.
Wireless control over music and calls
When I switched over to tunes, I found the sound powerful and well-rounded. And I could hit play and pause or adjust the volume without touching my phone. There's a remote on the cable connecting the left and right earpieces that handled those controls. A built-in mic lets you answer phone calls without removing the earbuds — or slowing down.
Comfortable and water-resistant
If you work up a sweat, don't worry. The SoundSport® wireless headphones aren't just stable and comfy, they're sweat- and weather-resistant, too. They are tough enough to hang with you through your grueling workouts, indoors or out.

I get more bass from these than than the Fiil Driifter headphones that I returned. When learning new songs for the praise team I need headphones that will reproduce decent bass parts.

Overview: The Bose SoundSport Wireless in-ear headphones deliver full, balanced sound and comfort for any activity. Designed for workouts, the headphones are sweat- and weather-resistant, and will stay in place during vigorous exercise. The SoundSport Wireless headphones feature Bluetooth and NFC, and work with iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
Bluetooth: Built-in Bluetooth lets you connect your devices wirelessly so you're not tethered to your phone. You can pair (and unpair) the headphones to an NFC-enabled Android device by touching the device to the NFC touchpoint on the in-line remote. The headphones are powered by a built-in Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery that charges in approximately 2 hours via the supplied Micro USB cable. A fully charged battery provides approximately 6 hours of playback. Music playback is not possible during charging.
Bose Connect: The Bose Connect app makes it easy to connect to your Bluetooth devices, and switch between them whenever you desire. It improves your wireless experience by helping you pair your headphones to multiple devices by a simple swipe. You can also get software updates, product tips, and personalized settings from the app. The free Bose Connect app is available for download from the Apple App store for devices running iOS 8.0 or later, and from Google Play for devices running Android 4.3 and up.
In-Line Remote Control/Microphone: The SoundSport Wireless in-ear headphones have a 21" connecting cable between the ear buds with an in-line 1-button remote control and microphone below the right ear bud. The remote and mic are compatible with both iPhone/iPad/iPod touch and Android devices. The Multi-function button will control play/pause, skip forward/backward, fast forward/rewind, and volume up/down. It can also answer/end a phone call, decline a call, answer or decline a second call, switch between two calls, create a conference call, activate voice control, and mute/unmute a call.
StayHear+ Tips: The SoundSport Wireless earbud headphones come with Bose's proprietary StayHear+ silicone ear-tips in three sizes (Small, Medium, and Large) to help assure a more accurate fit that's comfortable and stable. StayHear+ silicone ear-tips stay in your ears during exercise and other active sports. Advanced materials and design allow the tips to nestle inside the bowl of the ear, while also naturally conforming to the ear's upper ridge. StayHear+ tips also are designed to remain more securely on the headphone itself. Overall, they provide a better on-the-go listening experience.
Lightweight Carrying Case: The Bose SoundSport Wireless in-ear headphones come with a lightweight, durable neoprene carrying case to help protect the headphones while you travel and hold your keys or cash during your workout. The case has a carabiner so you can clip it to your clothing.
