Meet SoundSport® Free headphones, the first truly wireless in-ear headphones from Bose®. They are engineered to deliver clear, powerful sound with nothing—not even a single wire—in your way. So you can run, jump, dance, lift, twist, turn and achieve your personal best every time you use them.
Run the extra mile, dance like no one is watching and lift beyond your limits. Your headphones will still be there, because StayHear®+ Sport tips provide a secure and comfortable fit, even when you put your body to the test. Three different sizes of StayHear®+ Sport tips are included with your purchase, so you can find the right fit for you.
If you work hard, your body will turn up the heat. And when you train outside, the weather will throw some curveballs your way. But you don't have to sweat your sweat or the rain. The earbuds are made with water repellent mesh, so you can train hard without worrying whether your headphones can keep up.
Sometimes with wireless headphones you hear noise that interferes with your music. But with SoundSport® Free headphones, you won't hear any pops, cracks or hisses. Custom digital signal processing and a proprietary acoustic design deliver sound that brings your music to life. So go ahead and turn up that jam.
Sometimes you need to take a timeout. And when you do, it's easy to take calls, play or pause tracks, change the volume or access your phone's Siri or your Google Assistant right from the earbud. Voice prompts make Bluetooth® pairing a breeze. And when you're ready to go from 0 to 60, the music is right at your fingertips.
The charging case—included with your purchase—is more than meets the eye; it protects and recharges your earbuds while you recover from your workout. It’s magnetised, so it keeps the earbuds in place while they charge. It also provides two additional full charges—or up to 10 hours of battery life. So when you're ready to go, they are, too.
Worried about losing an earbud? Don't be. The Bose® Connect app has a "Find My Buds" feature that tracks when and where your headphones were last connected to your phone. Still having trouble finding your earbuds? Don't worry, an audio signal from the headphones can alert you to their location. Plus, you can manage all your Bluetooth® connections, switch between devices and receive software updates.

No. SoundSport Free wireless headphones have been designed to be durable enough to withstand sweat and weather. They are not designed for submersion underwater for extended periods of time, such as while swimming.
Yes. SoundSport Free headphones have an integrated dual-microphone array located on the right earbud to allow the customer to use them during calls when connected to a smartphone that supports the Bluetooth® HFP profile. Call audio will be heard in the right earbud. In addition to traditional calls, the headphones will work with many apps that use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), such as Skype or FaceTime.
When the earbuds are initially removed from the case, they will automatically enter discoverable mode and can be detected by your mobile device. To connect your device and learn about more features, download the Bose Connect app to finish the connecting process. If you don't have the Bose Connect app, follow the directions within your smartphone's Bluetooth menu to connect the headphones. Once the connection is made, the Bluetooth LED on both earbuds will turn white. To connect additional devices, press and hold the Bluetooth button located on the left earbud until you see the Bluetooth LED turn blue or hear the "ready to connect" voice prompt spoken in the right earbud. Then, follow the directions within the Bose Connect app to finish pairing.
SoundSport Free headphones connect to the source device using the right earbud. As long as the right earbud and the device are within 9 m (30 ft) of each other, the right earbud will play audio from the source device. The left earbud will stay connected to the right earbud as long as it is out of the case, charged and within 9 m (30 ft) of the right earbud. These ranges may be reduced by physical obstructions, such as walls and doors, or by interference from other electronic devices. Generally, the range of SoundSport Free wireless headphones can be described as the room the device is in and the adjacent room.
SoundSport Free headphones are charged by placing them in the included charging case. If the case has power, it will automatically charge the earbuds. The earbuds are charging when the LED lights on the case blink. Allow up to 2 hours for the headphones to fully charge. Once they are fully charged, the battery indicator light will turn solid and eventually turn off. If the case is out of power, plug the included cable into the case and plug the other end into a USB port on a computer or wall charger (sold separately).
SoundSport Free wireless headphones have up to 5 hours of battery life. Battery life is defined as the number of hours fully charged headphones can be actively used while listening to audio or making a phone call. The included charging case can provide an additional two full charges for the earbuds for up to ten additional hours of playback time.

The larger, middle button is the multi-function button. It initiates play/pause and other track controls for videos and music, answers and ends calls, and also provides access to your phone's Siri or your Google Assistant. The buttons on either side of the multi-function button are volume +/- buttons. They allow you to easily adjust the volume.
The StayHear+ Sport tips are made of a similar soft silicone material as the original StayHear tips, but they utilise a unique umbrella shape to create a gentle seal at the entrance of the ear canal, which helps improve audio performance.
The StayHear+ Sport tips are colour-coded. There is a small coloured ring inside each tip that tells you what size it is. White = SmallGrey = MediumBlack = Large
Holding the earbud by the stem, gently grasp the attached StayHear+ Sport tip and peel it away from the earbud. Caution: To prevent tearing, grasp the StayHear+ Sport tip by its base. Do not pull on the tip wing.
