Each earbud weighs just .35 ounces and measures just 1.1” high x 1.2” deep. They house a new antennae system to maintain a strong and reliable connection between each other, and the phone or tablet they’re paired to – whether the device is 30 feet away, in your pocket, gym bag, or strapped to your arm. Combined with a miniature acoustic package, including Bose digital signal processing, volume optimized EQ, and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, SoundSport Free delivers up to 5 hours of powerful, clear music – without cracks, pops, or hisses.
“The SoundSport Free is the closest thing to what people have always wanted in a sport headphone – a technology-packed solution that’s stripped down to just two rugged earbuds that feel great, stay connected, stay in, and sound amazing,” says Brian Maguire, director, Bose on-the-go products.
SoundSport Free headphones use proprietary StayHear+ Sport tips for a secure, firm fit and offer an IPX4 rating to resist water and sweat year-round. A one button press on the right earbud brings up your VPA.
The headphones feature a high-gloss finish and come with a charging case that magnetically holds each earbud in place, doubles as storage, and provides two additional full charges for up to 10 more hours of battery life. When not stowed away, a new “Find My Buds” feature on the Bose Connect App displays the last time and place they were used to locate them quickly.
