With sunny spring weather just around the corner, a lot of would-be fitness buffs are getting excited to hit the roads and get running — and that means prioritizing the tunes. Some runners use music to pace their movements, others to push themselves further and faster, while still others use music as entertainment during a tiresome morning chore. Every use for music has one thing in common, however: it has to stand up to the rigors of exercise and perform well through it all.
The Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Headphones are a perfect solution. Though they sport absolutely no external wires anywhere in their design, these headphones have built-in controls for pausing playback, switching tracks, and answering calls. They’re IPX4 rated against water, so no amount of rain or sweat will cause a short circuit, and you can focus on hitting your goals.
These headphones are truly designed for an active lifestyle, with a secure over-the-ear design and three sizes of in-ear tip for comfortable fitting. And if you somehow do manage to knock them out or leave them somewhere, they even have a “Find My Buds” feature that lets you locate your headphones via GPS.
The earbuds themselves get about 5 hours of continuous playtime on a single charge, but they can also charge twice, fully, from the included charging case — meaning you don’t have to find an outlet for fifteen hours of audio playback. That’s a lot of exercise.
Of course, this all supports a pair of headphones that provide the trademark Bose sound quality. It’s a crisp, powerful sound that will motivate you to push harder, or keep you on the pace you set out — the effect you get depends on what sort of tunes you choose. Their quality, durability, and rugged wearable nature make these headphones the perfect workout companion, no matter what sort of workout you favor.
