The Bose Sport open earplugs are a big change from the company’s typical noise reduction products. These open earphones are placed gently on top of the ears to let in outside noise. Some listeners may think this is counter-intuitive, but for outdoor athletes, it is absolutely necessary to understand the surrounding environment.
These true wireless earbuds do not use bone conduction technology, as we have seen from the popular audio company Aftershokz. Instead, the driver will emit sound directly from the earbuds, and then the waves will enter your ear canal. Bose promises that even if the volume output is large, the audio playback will only be heard by the audience.
As indicated by the IPX4 rating, these open earplugs are waterproof. Each ear hook fixes the earpiece in place so that it fits tightly to the back of the ear. Just like Bose Sport earbuds and Bose QuietComfort earbuds, Sport Open earbuds use Bluetooth 5.1 firmware. Each earbud has a button for playback control and voice assistant access. You can also control the headset through the Bose Music app.
Bose Sport open earplugs can be pre-ordered in the United States and retail for US$199.95. Bose will start shipping in mid-January, and black is currently the only color choice.
