Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • The only criticism is the design of these fitness headphones; the wireless Bose SoundSport earbuds are quite large
  • Due to bloated bass, there is some lack of clarity, which makes sound a little dull
  • These are not great earbuds for noisy environments due to open design that let ambient sound leaks in
  • Earbuds could be a little louder because the open design does not produce a strong seal and let external sounds to come in
  • They support Bluetooth 4.2, which is not as reliable as 5.0, and have quite a bit of latency while watching movies or playing games
  • Bluetooth connection is not very reliable, drops the signal and skips tracks several times
  • There is no cable rosette to use when the battery is dead, so you won't use them for transatlantic flights
  • The buttons are quite large and coated with lots of rubber to make them sweat resistant, but little awkward to press
