Bose 774373-0020 SoundSport Free Wireless Headphones, Navy

The Bose SoundSport Free is an excellent sounding pair of earbuds built to work out the challenges of working out. When marketing to people that are working out, there are some special concerns you have to take into account, like the fact that you are going to be moving around a lot.

This is where these earbuds immediately get in trouble. The outside piece is notably larger than on the outside. In fact, there have been many instances and comments about how poor it fits when worn– and that is in spite of the 3 different sized tips and an in-ear hook design. For some, this won’t be a big deal, but for others, this might mean they either hurt your ear, fall out more frequently, or both.

The Bose Connect App does have a “Find My Buds” feature which at least partially helps mitigate this. Maybe it’s a counter for this known pre-production flaw? We really can’t tell…

For this same reason, it is disappointing that these are only IPX4. I mean, that should be fine, but if they’re falling out of your ears or getting extra sweaty from an intense workout, then it’d be nice if they were at least a little more rugged.
