Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Bose SoundSport Free are the biggest pair of truly wireless earbuds that protrude from the ears quite a bit
  • The case is about twice the size of the Apple AirPod's charging case and not ideal to fit in your jean’s pockets
  • SoundSport Free can only play audio from phone calls through the right speaker, not both speakers
  • The worst latency performance for a truly wireless design, this makes them unsuitable for watching video or game content
  • These are open pair of true wireless earbuds that rest on the outer part of the ear canal, therefore, allow external sounds to come in
  • There is no higher quality codec support such as aptX, result in frequent connection loss of left earbud
  • At $199, they are expensive earbuds and most alternatives offer 80% of the same experience at half the price
  • The micro USB charging cable instead of a lightning or USB Type-C means an additional cable to carry when traveling
