With the the iPhone 7 and reportedly the Samsung Galaxy S8 expunging the 3.5 mm headphone jack for their phones, wireless earbuds and headphones have been the new wave for consumers looking to upgrade their phones. Now before I get into this review, I must tell you that good, wireless earbuds can cost upwards of $100, with some models eclipsing $250.

About a week ago, I purchased the Bose Soundsport Wireless Headphones. This model costs $149.99 and comes in three colors: black, aqua and citron. Some features of this model are sweat resistance, water resistance and an in-line mic with volume control and pause/skip functions. They also came with a soft carrying case that fits the headphones nicely and the unboxing experience was amazing.

To start with the headphones, they are extremely comfortable. They come with the Bose gel comfort fit ear tips which fit in my ear very well. They come with three sizes: small, medium and large. After hours of listening, there is no ear fatigue. They also feel incredibly light in my ears.

Besides being very comfortable, the Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones sound amazing. The base is booming, but it doesn’t overpower the mediums and highs. The high notes are super crisp and you can distinguish many sounds in that end. Overall, the sound quality is top notch and is alone worth $150.

In addition to sound quality, the headphones are wireless. If you are anything like me, you hate wires. They get tangled up, get caught on corners and can rip and tear. The only wire on these headphones is the wire that attaches to each earpiece so you don’t lose them.

As for functionality, these headphones do what they are made to do very well. When working out, they stay in your ears without having to adjust them and you can’t even tell that they are there most of the time. Lastly, these headphones pair very easily, just with the press of a button. It takes a second or two for them to connect to your phone and never lose connection.

Although these headphones sound great and have amazing features, there are some downsides. The first being Bluetooth makes your phone go through battery more quickly. These headphones have a 6 Hour battery life, which, if I’m being honest, is average. I can get through a whole day of school and a couple hours at home before I need to charge. They charge relatively quickly, using a micro USB to charge them. Finally, the headphones are big. They stick out of my ears a lot, although that could be because my ears are small.

Overall, these headphones were worth the purchase. To me, spending $150 on sound and comfort is very important. Compared to the standard Apple EarPods, they blow them away in every category. These headphones are a 4.5 out of 5, so if you are debating whether or not to buy new earbuds, I would definitely recommend giving these a chance over other wireless earbuds and maybe even some expensive wired earbuds. Bose Soundsport Wireless Headphones are great for the ever increasing wireless world.
