Few audio brands have earned the kind of industry-wide and consumer-wide respect like Bose, and that’s for good reason. The company, which is approaching its 60th anniversary soon, has been at the forefront of both audio engineering and wearable technology for decades, with products that deliver on both sound quality and inspired (read: cool) design.
If you know Bose, you’ll know that the brand rarely discounts its products, but we spotted a deal right now that gets you a pair of Bose Sport True Wireless Earbuds marked down to just $149. The new wireless earbuds deal (which we spotted at Amazon) has the earbuds lower than what Apple is selling its AirPods Pro for right now at Apple.com ($249).
The Bose wireless earbuds deliver clear, full, confident sound, with crisp highs and booming bass. Bose is known for its audio quality, and these Bose Sport earbuds re-create real, life-like sound, as if you were in the concert hall or studio with the artists themselves.
These Bose earbuds are slightly better than AirPods in terms of battery life too: each charge gets you up to five hours of playtime with Bose (compared to around four hours, in our testing, with the AirPods Pro). Get an extra 10 hours by using the included charging case. And get up to two full hours of battery life with just a 15-minute charge.
The buds pair easily to your phone or laptop via Bluetooth, and a built-in mic lets you take calls on-the-go, or take your video chats at work without disturbing those around you.
The earbuds are sweat-resistant and water-resistant, making them great for workouts. Taking them on the run? This set includes three different pairs of Bose’s “StayHere Max” eartips so you can find the most comfortable and secure fit. We’ve tested these Bose earbuds for running and found that they stay put even when we’re on the move, and they’re more comfortable in our ears than AirPods.
What we like: the Bose app lets you customize your audio profile, check battery life, adjust settings and more, all from your phone.
Don’t take our word for it though: Bose is currently endorsed by NFL star quarterback Russell Wilson (see featured image up top). These Bose Sport earbuds also boast a 4.4-star rating (out of five) from more than 26,000 reviewers online.
Amazon’s Bose earbuds sale currently has three colors available in the Bose Sport wireless earbuds: black, “glacier white” (pictured above) and “baltic blue.” This is a limited-time deal so we recommend that you add to cart soon before quantities run out.
