Product Research


Overview: The Bose SoundSport in-ear sports headphones are built for full, balanced sound, stability, and durability. Designed for workouts, the headphones are sweat- and weather-resistant, and will stay in place during vigorous exercise. They are specifically designed for use with iPhone and other Apple products.

Lifelike Audio Performance: The SoundSport in-ear headphones use proprietary technology to deliver tonally balanced audio with crisp highs and deep low notes. The exclusive TriPort technology helps deliver deep, natural low frequencies, thanks to three tiny ports in each earbud. You'll also hear crisp highs with a wider range than you'd expect from most in-ear headphones. As a safety feature, the SoundSport headphones allow ambient sound to pass through, so you can stay aware of your surroundings.

In-Line Remote Control/Microphone: The SoundSport in-ear headphones have a 44" cable with an in-line 3-button remote control and microphone. The remote and mic are compatible with select Apple products, including iPhone 3GS and later, iPad, iPod touch 2nd generation and later, iPod classic (120GB and 160GB), and iPod nano 4th generation or later. The remote is supported by iPod shuffle 3rd generation or later. Audio is supported by all iPad and iPod models. Controls include volume up/down, skip forward or backward, fast forward/rewind, play, pause, accept call, reject call, end call, and engage Voice Control (with compatible devices).

Note: The headphones should be able to deliver audio to most devices with a 3.5mm jack. The answer/end calls function may work with other devices, but the function varies between models. The volume controls will not likely work with non-Apple devices.

StayHear Tips: The SoundSport earbud headphones come with Bose's proprietary StayHear silicone ear-tips in three sizes (Small, Medium, and Large) to help assure a more accurate fit that's comfortable and stable. StayHear silicone ear-tips stay in your ears during exercise and other active sports. Advanced materials and design allow the tips to nestle inside the bowl of the ear, while also naturally conforming to the ear's upper ridge. StayHear tips also are designed to remain more securely on the headphone itself. Overall, they provide a better on-the-go listening experience.

Lightweight Carrying Case: The Bose SoundSport headphones come with a lightweight, durable carrying case to help protect the headphones while you travel and hold your keys or cash during your workout.
