Bose’s Wireless Sport Open Earbuds Offer Both Hi-Fi Audio & Spacial Awareness

Modern active noise-canceling headphones have a delicate balancing act to pull off, neutralizing the majority of background noises while isolating and relaying vital sounds such as car horns or screeching tires to be heard over music playback. And while most wireless workout headphone manufacturers have taken a rather involved, technology-driven approaches through the use of systems like AmbientAware of Transparency Mode, Bose has recently opted to employ a simpler, yet reportedly just as effective means of letting sounds through.

Known as the Bose Sport Open Earbuds, these true wireless items feature an arching hook design that wraps around the back of the wearer’s ears, leaving the earbuds floating just above the ear canal rather than in it, thereby giving the wearer full auditory awareness of their surroundings at all times. The Sport Open’s battery is good for eight hours of tunes, plus can be fully charged in two hours, or charged for 30-minutes to achieve three hours of playback. Other highlights include 16mm drivers, Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity with a 30’ range and connectivity to the Bose Music app, and an IPX4-rating for sweat and water. Additional charging cases can also be purchased for an extra $20, and the headphones are sold with an included wireless charging dock. Priced at $200, the Bose Sport Open Earbuds are scheduled for a release on January 20.

Purchase: $200
