Bose SoundSport Wireless
(a source bose.com) 

Bose SoundSport Wireless come with a $150 price tag. For such a cost, you can find affordable earbuds with the same or even better pack. First of all, they are not true wireless. However, many runners are ok with it because it ensures a firm fixation in the ears. The SoundSport earphones last up to 6 hours and are IPX4 water-resistance certified.

The sound is more than good - focused but not overshadowing bass, good detail and without drop-outs and wireless bloopers. Noise isolation is weak, and the mic quality is mediocre - you will be heard well in silent environments but a bit lost in noisy situations. The Bluetooth version is 4.0 while the latest one is 5.1. 

To be honest, the price is high for such an outdated pair of wireless earbuds. And yes, they can be used together with the Bose Connect app but the number of features is limited. The NFC connection is also available. That’s not what influences the purchase decision when looking for wireless earbuds for sports or commuting.

What if we tell you that you can get the same type of earbuds but with Bluetooth 4.1 (that’s a big deal though), bigger battery life, high-quality mic and other perks like multipoint connection and voice assistants activation but with a nicer price tag? In this piece, we name a few Bose SoundSport alternatives that deliver high-quality sounding and meantime save big bucks. Take a look.

Treblab N8

Treblab N8 - Bose SoundSport wireless headphones alternative - Best for all

Type: wireless, in-ear | Weight: 21 grams | Playtime: up to 7H | Charging time: 1.5H | Signal range: 33 feet | Water resistance: IPX5 | BT: 4.1 | Amazon rating: 4.1

Pros:

  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • IPX5 water-resistance rating
  • CD-like sound quality
  • Passive noise reduction
  • Up to 7 hours of playtime
  • Best money vs. value ratio

Cons:

  • No quick charging

Review:

The N8 feature Bluetooth 4.1, which was a big deal at the time. There’s no aptX here but for a 20-dollar price tag the sound quality is pretty amazing. The aptX Bluetooth codec is top leagues ahead of SBC. It supports a great enough bit-rate to make things run smoothly and sound extraordinary. However, you can always look for other TREBLAB models that use Bluetooth 5.0 aptX for even better true audio reproduction and stable connectivity. 

The N8 earphones are IPX5 waterproof certified, which is 1 level ahead from the Bose Sound Sport headphones. It means they can tolerate heavy jets of water under high pressure. Compared with the Bose in-ear headphones, the N8 feature passive noise reduction. It is naturally achieved thanks to the silicone ear-tips and ear-fins. The latter also provide a right fit for any ear size. Considering a 20-buck price and the pack, the N8 can be boldly dubbed the best cheap alternative to Bose SoundSport.

The battery life is more solid - up to 7 hours per charge. The cable between keeps the buds together, which is super handy to carry them in a bag. Also, they come with a carrying case. The built-in mic and cVc 6.0 technology allow true high-quality calls. Three multifunctional buttons enable all basic controls. You can also summon digital assistants and benefit from the multipoint connection feature allowing pairing the wireless earbuds and two sources at the same time.

Sennheiser CX Sport

Sennheiser CX Sport - Bose SoundSport wireless headphones alternative - Best for bass

Type: wireless, in-ear | Weight: N/A | Playtime: up to 6H | Charging time: 1.5H | Signal range: N/A | Water resistance: IPX4 | BT: 4.2 | Amazon rating: 3.1

Pros:

  • Rich and detailed sound
  • Driving bass
  • IPX4 rating

Cons:

  • No noise isolation

Review:

Here’s another good Bose SoundSport alternative. Their design is pretty glamour - neon yellow built-in ear-fins and silver inputs with the brand logo. They sound well with an intense delivery that does really motivate for one more push. 

Rubberized ear-fins install the earbuds in place for a true snug fit and IPX4 certification allows sweating. The battery life is about 6 hours and it takes about an hour and a half to charge them fully. Herewith, 15 minutes of charging provide another hour of juice. In general, the brand has a reputation for selling top, great, well-sounding audio gear, and the CX Sport earphones are not an exception. There is a lot of clarity and driving bass in audio reproduction. They are definitely worth every buck and your meticulous review. 

Bowers & Wilkins PI3

Bowers & Wilkins PI3 - Bose SoundSport wireless headphones alternative - Best for sound

Type: wireless, in-ear | Weight: 31.8 grams | Playtime: up to 8H | Charging time: N/A | Signal range: N/A | Water resistance: No | BT: aptX HD, aptX Adaptive | Amazon rating: 3.7

Pros:

  • Amazing audio transmission
  • Best driving bass
  • Handy design

Cons:

  • No noise isolation in the ears
  • No water-resistance certification
  • Needs of extra ear-tips 

Review:

Bowers & Wilkins has built its reputation in the audio gear market with top loudspeakers. The release of the PI3 didn’t ruin it either. The battery lasts up to 8 hours, and the earphones allow quick charging. This way, a 15-minute charging delivers an extra two hours of playtime. The brand claims the wireless headphones withstand light rain, sweat and light splashes of water. As for the fit, many complain about them needing some extra ear-tips to find an ideal one. 

The PI3 deliver a true, powerful but balanced sound, and literally every genre of music can find a great audio reproduction here. The in-line controls are easy to use thanks to large buttons. Some cable noise might occur but it is mostly due to a personal experience. To sum up, these wireless earbuds are good for gym workouts or commuting. Considering their high cost, there is definitely a more beneficial Bose SoundSport wireless alternative.

Skullcandy Smokin' Buds 2 Wireless -  Bose SoundSport wireless headphones alternative - Best for budget 

Type: wireless, in-ear | Weight: 63.5 grams | Playtime: up to 7H | Charging time: N/A | Signal range: N/A | Water resistance: No | BT: 4.1 | Amazon rating: 3.8

Pros:

  • Great sound quality
  • Excellent price

Cons:

  • No noise isolation in the ears
  • No IPX rating

Review:

Amongst cheap but top Bose SoundSport alternatives, these wireless earbuds represent the best true money vs. value ratio. If you’re on a tight budget, that’s a way to go. There are no ‘goodies’ here like aptX, quick charging or NFC. But the sound is rich and entertaining with a broad and clear soundstage, which is impressive considering the price. 

The battery life is about 6-7 hours. The cable can be detached from the adjustable neckband. You can use an elementary three button remote under the left bud and a tiny plastic clip that lets you join the cable together when you’re wearing them. In general, wireless headphones are highly recommended because they meet the basic needs of any audiophile without draining their wallet. 

Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Wireless

Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Wireless - Bose SoundSport wireless headphones alternative - Best for battery life

Type: wireless, in-ear | Weight: 53 grams | Playtime: up to 10H | Charging time: N/A | Signal range: N/A | Water resistance: No | BT: 4.1 | Amazon rating: 3.7

Pros:

  • Great sound quality
  • Up to 10 hours per charge
  • Comfortable design
  • Easy-to-use controls

Cons:

  • No noise isolation
  • No water-resistance rating

Review:

Amongst all the top alternatives to Bose SoundSport, these Sennheiser amazing wireless in-ears do not disappoint. The neckband ensures stability and contains the battery and Bluetooth receiver. The battery life stands out in this list delivering up to 10 hours of power per charge. Many users appreciate the fact that the earpieces are not that bulky as other products of the brand. 

Any review would say it also did a good true job with the sound here. It is rich, immersive and open enough. If you’re ok with the design, the rest in these earbuds is perfectly fine. As for the latter, the core part is covered with smooth sheepskin nappa leather for you to feel comfortable and confident. The controls are installed in the left arm of the neckband, and the USB audio support allows connecting directly to your device. 

Conclusion

As clearly stated in this review, if you’re after some cheaper alternatives to Bose SoundSport, then these 5 pairs of earphones should be on your radar for sure. However, when making a decision, make sure you know which characteristic is the most crucial for you. Is it a good sound quality and comfort on the move? Or, you’d rather pick something waterproof, and the average sound with plain bass is ok for you? If you need something like all-in-one and meantime super affordable, then the TREBLAB N8 is undeniable the best alternative to Bose SoundSport here.
