Bose SoundSport Free: not just another alternative to the AirPods

We’ve seen enough of budget alternatives AirPods (in all cases, alas, I was disappointed), and it’s time to find out what’s on offer in the segment of wireless headphones (with a charging case and all the “Goodies”), the leaders of the market of portable audio. Many producers got very nervous when the game entered Free SoundSport headphones from Bose, because this is the first attempt to Express themselves in a completely new direction, which was, apparently, the future of wireless headphones.

But Bose is not the company that tries to assert itself — this is one of the leading manufacturers in the field of audio devices, which is known to be the first applies modern technology, and boasts its expertise in the area of active noise cancellation. More interesting to us was to look at a model SoundSport Free to see if they can take away the palm from AirPods. But the impression the review was much more interesting.

Let’s begin with technical characteristics.

Starting a conversation about the equipment, not to mention the box design in the signature minimalist style Bose. It can be opened like a bundle, in which is hidden some treasure. Inside we are greeted with the headphones, which are hidden in a plastic charging case. Slightly below — documentation and accessories.

The interior of the box already makes it clear, which is mainly designed SoundSport Free — sports! Very clearly this tells us the picture of a runner who is willing to run the coveted 100 meters (maybe a world record to beat, who knows…).

Among the accessories — micro-USB cable for charging case, two pairs of changeable silicone ear cushions size S and L (M already wearing headphones) and documentation. Tips, incidentally, are United with clamps: this is useful since separate fasteners are often lost, besides landing in the ears becomes much more reliable.

Headphones look modern — the colors are very nice and vibrant, plus each earpiece hosts the Bose logo (just adds statisti). On the right earpiece there is a button playback control (Play/Pause), she is responsible for the accept or reject call, call the voice assistant and track switching. Yes, there is such a multifunctional key, whose purpose depends on the quantity and strength. The left earphone decided not to load and put one button to pair via Bluetooth (headphones remember up to 7 devices). Buttons moderately elastic, and conveniently, the main control center is on the right: most often, we interact with headphones right hand.

Around ear cushions located the compensation holes for ventilation, plus the headset has a MIC — yeah, headset is also. Copper contacts for charging are not striking and are made carefully.

An important advantage SoundSport Free on the same AirPods — protection against ingress of rain and sweat to the IPX4 standard. Of course, in the shower or the pool you are not going with them, but to give training in the gym completely, and the headphones will be nothing. I must say thanks to a special coating on the outside which will protect the exterior of the device from drops of sweat.

A few words about the case for charging. It comfortable headphones you can get and place in your ears with one hand. Yes, there is the question of why the engineers chose the micro-USB instead of the more modern Type-C, but so be it we let this slide. The hinges are made “on the conscience”, so the charging case will last a long time.

On the case hosted the only button you can click on it and view the battery level using the led indicator located below or open the lid and get headphones.

The shape of this “box” really convenient, and the coating soft-touch nice. However, the only downside of this case is associated with the coating — soft-touch too well collects fingerprints. But quite a few times to “walk” with a cloth and all is well again.

Sound

But for the sound can be forgiven, and micro-USB port in the charging case and its cover, and even the fact that someone these headphones may seem big. Sound Bose SoundSport Free not just cool: not slukavil if we say that this is the best sound in the segment. AirPods here and some were not, despite the lack of support of the codec aptX. The bass is pronounced, but not rumble “in the skull”, the vocals in his place, as the lower with the upper frequencies.

At first it seemed that the headset lacks noise insulation, but then I remembered that they are specifically made for outdoor technology. SoundSport Free simply created for running and walking outdoors, so they don’t cut the extra sounds, so you can control the external environment.

Cool that headphones keep connection and not “fall off”, as well as working with a proprietary Bose Connect app, available for iOS and Android.

The app allows you to search for the lost headphones, upgrade software, configure the sleep timer and…Yes, to control playback in a nice embedded player. This is in addition to standard features like viewing the charge level.


As for runtime, it meets the stated — we got in almost 5 hours when listening to music on the street and in the office. A little? Think about charging case — capacity enough to charge the headphones twice. Here we have 15 hours of listening — full daylight even more.

True wireless

In-class Bose SoundSport Free clearly feel on a horse. And it is ensured not only by the quality of sound and connection, as well as a unique design. These headphones sold everything that I would like to see in wireless sport headphones. Yes, they are not connected to “magic” as AirPods, but here everyone chooses for himself what is more important: ease of connection or sound quality.

  3. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
