Bose, known for making headphones and earphones has officially launched its latest wireless earphones in the United States — Bose Sport Open Earbuds. As the name itself indicates, the earphones are open instead of having an in-ear design.
As the earphones are designed for sports use, it offers IPX4 rating for water resistance. They are also lightweight, weighing around 14 grams each.
The enclosure sits on the ear canal and not inside, thus, they don’t come with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). The company says that it allows users to hear traffic, nature, or anything that the user doesn’t want to miss.
There’s also a microphone designed for clarity and isolating voice from wind and noise. The company claims that they’ll stay precisely positioned while resisting sweat, heat, rain, and snow.
For connectivity, the Bose Sport Open Earbuds come with Bluetooth 5.1 support. There’s also a dedicated button on the left to trigger voice assistant and on the right, there is a power on/off button along with buttons to play, pause, and skip songs or answer a call.
The earphones are now up for pre-orders in the United States for $200 and will start shipping from mid-January. They come with a protective carrying case, charging base, and the Bose Music app.
