These in-ear headphones are so good I can keep the volume very low and still hear. Great clarity. They are very comfortable and I forget I'm wearing them.

Excelente sonido. Mi esposo esta encantado. Fue su regalo de Padres. Quizas el cable debería ser un poco mas largo. Excellent sound. My husband was is delighted. It was a gift from my parents. Maybe the cable should be a little longer.

amazing sound quality and never falls off

Leo from nyc on 6/21/2016

love my bose, its the second pair I'm getting, got one in 2007, had them until 2016 and now upgraded to these guys. worth every penny, these ear phones go with me everywhere, I'm a realtor and work mostly outside and walk the streets of NYC most of the day, I do everything on these earphones, talk on the phone, use voice recognition to write text messages and of course listen to music. the sound quality is amazing and voices come out very clear. you get the perfect amount of base and definitely more mid-range than my older bose. having then in my ear all day long is not a problem, I cant feel it at all and they stay glued to my ears even when running. bottom line - great great product.

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 Samsung and Android devices.

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 Samsung and Android products. 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. Full controls may not be available for some models. You should refer to the User Guide of your Samsung or Android device to see if remotes work with your model.

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.

2 questions already asked

Bose does not list specific phone models for compatibility; only "The remote and mic are compatible with select Samsung and Android products." So, they very well may work but we cannot be 100% sure of that. You can try contacting Bose directly if you need to know before ordering: 800-999-2673 I hope that helps!
