The SoundSport In-Ear is a pair of wired earbuds with a bass heavy sound signature.
The stock headphone cable is short which can be convenient, but also comes with an extension cable if extra length is needed.
The cable and some parts of the headphones are wrapped with a hydrophobic cloth material that will help prevent moisture from causing problems, making these great for running or outdoor use.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great bass reproduction along with good detail and smoothness to the highs and mids
Bass output is very good. It has good power yet at the same time is fast and punchy. It does not bloat the sound at all. The highs and mids are able to deliver a good level of detail that makes the sound quite lively. These will work best for bassy tracks, though rock, jazz, classical and pop will still sound enjoyable.
Pro You have the option a short or long cable
In stock form, these headphones have a relatively short cable. However, Bose includes an extension cable for extra reach. This can help to minimize the wire length that you have to deal with when going for a run or exercising.
Pro Won't easily get damaged by splashes of liquid
The earbuds can resist small splashes of liquid or sweat. The hydrophobic cloth material wrapped around the headphones helps to minimize issues relating to moisture.
Pro Won't fall off the ears easily
The specially designed Stay Hear ear tips have a wing design which helps to add grip to the earpieces when worn. This helps to ensure that the headphones will not easily get dislodged when on the move.
Pro Can be worn for long periods with little to no discomfort
The ear tips are very soft and flexible. Combined with the ear bud design that does not jam into your ear canal, these are a joy to use in terms of comfort, even for extended periods.
Con Separate variants for iOS/Android
Do make sure to buy the proper variant for your device. The remote will not function optimally if the headphones are used with a different platform.
Con Has poor noise isolation
You'll still be able to clearly hear your surroundings with these on. If you want to focus on your music while using these, then the noise that mixes with your music can get quite distracting.
