Hear everything around you as you enjoy your favorite tunes while running with the the new Bose Sport Open Earbuds. The Bose Sport Open Earbuds looks like regular TWS earbuds, but if you take a closer look, they are actually not plugged inside the sound holes. They are really more like miniature speakers placed very closed to the ears.
Bose described Bose Sport Open Earbuds as “a truly different kind of sport headphone” because, “they’re the first of their kind that don’t go into your ears.” Well then, they can’t be called “earbuds”, can they?
This concept is not new, though. More recent example would be the Run Up Audio Headband while LG had experimented this concept way back in 2017 with LG Tone Studio, albeit it was designed to worn around the neck.
Bose’s iteration combines Bose OpenAudio technology with a unique open-ear design to offer high-quality sound without covering the ears. The sound pumped out by two 16 mm drivers promised high-quality acoustic precision, directed to your ears and away from others.
Meanwhile, advanced microphone system provides crystal-clear calls. The earbuds are molded to follow the ear’s natural curve and they have an industrial grade thermoplastic exterior, and IPX4 rated.
Bose Sport Open Earbuds’ onboard battery is good for up to 8 hours of continuous play per 2-hour charge. There is quick charge too, which will get you up to 3 hours of use with 30-minute charge.
Bose Sport Open Earbuds is available to order now for US$199.95. Shipping is expected to happen, starting January 20, 2021.
