BOSE LAUNCHES FIRST WIRE­LESS SPORTS EAR­BUDS

SoundMag - - News - BY Steve May

Renowned au­dio brand, Bose, has launched its first wire­less ear­buds the ‘SoundS­port Free’, set to be avail­able in Aus­tralia from Fe­bru­ary 6th for A$299.95.

Bose af­firms that de­spite their small size, the SoundS­port Free is “tech­nol­ogy-packed”.

The au­dio brand claims the ear­buds will “stay con­nected” and “stay in” – two ma­jor prob­lems which of­ten plague Blue­tooth con­nected wire­less head­phones.

Bose as­serts that the ear­buds’ pro­pri­etary StayHear+ sport tips of­fer a se­cure and firm fit.

Weigh­ing under 10 grams – 2.8cm x 3 cm – Bose’s SoundS­port Free in­cor­po­rates a new an­ten­nae sys­tem to main­tain a “strong and re­li­able” con­nec­tion, for up to 9 me­tres. The SoundS­port Free fea­ture a “minia­ture acous­tic pack­age” which in­cludes Bose’s dig­i­tal sig­nal pro­cess­ing, vol­ume op­ti­mised EQ and a recharge­able lithium bat­tery.

The prod­uct pledges to of­fer 5 hours of mu­sic play­back with­out “pop or hisses”.

Whilst the SoundS­port Free is de­signed for fit­ness use, Bose states the prod­uct is also suit­able for sim­ple mu­sic-on­the-go. Fea­tur­ing IPX4 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the ear­buds are sweat and wa­ter re­sis­tant.

The ac­com­pa­ny­ing charg­ing case of­fers two ad­di­tional full charges, thereby ten hours of bat­tery life. The Bose Con­nect App also pro­vides “Find My Buds” func­tion­al­ity.

Bose’s SoundS­port Free ear­buds are avail­able in three “high-gloss” colours (Triple Black, Blue/Citron and Orange/ Blue) and will be avail­able to pur­chase from au­tho­rised re­tail­ers na­tion­ally.
