One month after appearing in a leaked FCC filing, the new Bose Sport Open Earbuds launched this week. True to their name, the wireless headphones sit above—not over, in, or on—the ear canal, keeping wearers connected and aware during runs, rides, walks, and hikes.
Simply slip on the contoured ear hook and tune into your favorite podcast or motivating playlist, while still listening to the world around you; even at high volumes, you—and only you—can hear your content and conversations.
“Runners and cyclists have been asking us for headphones that let them stay focused on their performance without wires, neckbands, or having to pop out a bud to hear traffic, a training partner, nature, or anything else they don’t want to miss,” Mehul Trivedi, category director for Bose wearable audio, said in a statement. “Our new Sport Open Earbuds solve all these problems—and they’re the only earbuds that do.”
Each 14-gram in-ear monitor houses a tiny dipole transducer for “loud-and-clear” personal audio, an advanced microphone system, an etched antenna, and Bluetooth 5.1. A button on the left bud lets you access your phone’s native assistant, while one on the right bud does “virtually everything else,” like power on and off; play, pause, and skip songs; or answer, decline, and end calls.
“With a simple twist, they gently grip the ear’s outer ridge to lock in place with no ear tip, virtually no skin contact, and without the squeezing and vibrations from bone conduction,” according to a Bose press release. “And even during tough training and weather conditions, they’ll stay precisely positioned while resisting sweat, heat, rain, and snow.”
Pre-order the Bose Sport Open Earbuds in triple black for $199.95 from Bose or Best Buy; the product will begin shipping later this month. Compatible with iOS and Android devices, Bose Sport Open Earbuds promise eight hours of battery life, and come with a protective carrying case and charging base.
