Bose just launched what look like the ultimate gym headphones

Bose has launched its latest true wireless SoundSport Free headphones, claiming they’re the ultimate choice for all fitness fanatics out there.

The SoundSport Free headphones are available now at Bose retail stores,, and authorised Bose dealers, with pricing starting at £179.95.

That price places the SoundSport Free in the mid-range segment of the true wireless market; above the £80 Motorola Stream earbuds but well below the £229 Jabra Elite Sport, which are currently Trusted Reviews’ favorite in-ear sports headphones.

The SoundSports don’t include an built-in heart rate sensor, such as the Jabra, or the active noise cancellation seen in the audio-focused Sony WF-1000X.

Bose claims the headphones will make up for this by offering a close-to-indestructible IPX4-certified design, custom-made “StayHear+ Sport” tips for a reportedly unbreakable fit, and the balanced audio for which Bose is most famous.

“The SoundSport Free is the closest thing to what people have always wanted in a sport headphone – a technology-packed solution that’s stripped down to just two rugged earbuds that feel great, stay connected, stay in, and sound amazing,” said Brian Maguire, director, Bose on-the-go products.

Aside from the features mentioned above, the earbuds sport fairly common specs. They weigh in at just 18g and promise to offer the bog-standard five-hour battery life common to most true wireless sets. The headphones will also be supplied with a custom magnetic charge case, which Bose claims will top up the buds for an additional 10 hours.
