Bose Announces Sport Open Wireless Earbuds Featuring New Above-Ear Design
Mehul Trivedia, category director for Bose Wearable Audio, states that “Runners and cyclists have been asking us for headphones that let them stay focused on their performance without wires, neckbands, or having to pop out a bud to hear traffic, a training partner, nature, or anything else they don’t want to miss.” To solve these issues, Bose created the Sport Open Earbuds which sit on the ear’s outer ridge so users can have “loud-and-clear personal audio that stays at the ear — and “cancels” out everywhere else.”
Perhaps Bose is solving an issue that does not exist as there are noise-canceling earbuds that can be toggled to allow users to hear the world around them. On the other hand, it is nice not to have earbuds in when you get sweaty, as the rubber tips can get annoying very quickly. Either way, these earbuds are compatible with iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth and come in Triple Black for $199.99. You can pre-order today on Bose.com or BestBuy.com, with availability coming in mid-January.
