    A nice case, solid implementation

    I went ahead and purchased these along with a pair of SoundSport wireless earbuds. The combined price ($200) put them on par with what I would pay for a pair of Jaybird Freedom earbuds or Powerbeats 2 when they aren't on sale. The case isn't necessary but it is nice. The case is compact, securely stores the earbuds, and has plenty of space for a USB in the case's internal pocket. I usually rely on the case for charging my earbuds after they ran out of juice. It's really convenient as I will plug my earbuds into the case, zip them up, and leave them in my car overnight to charge (though it only takes about an hour). I'll do this about 3 times before the case needs to be recharged and I will do that either with a USB charger in my car or one in my office. The case is a convenient way to charge your earbuds wherever and whenever you want. It has a multi-colored LED light that will let you know just what the case is doing whether it's charging its internal battery, charging the earbuds, or if you are just checking to see how much juice is left in the case's battery. The case seems well-built though the outside soft rubber of mine is already showing signs of wear after putting the case in my pocket a total of three times (there's a scratch across the Bose logo). But they still work fine. I recommend these to anyone who wants a convenient, albeit completely unnecessary, way to charge their earbuds while protecting them.

    Amazing for on the go!

    This case is a lifesaver! Before I knew this case existed, I always just kept my headphones ready to go and kept track of the percentage to not let them die out while im still out. On the first day of school, I didnt notice the battery was completely dead and I had to power through a full day of school without music and thats not something anyone should ever go through lol. Right after class I immediately purchased the case and fell in love with it. It chargers your headphones for an hour of music in just 15 mins and fully charges it in less than two. If im ever running late and I grab my headphones with not enough juice, I put them inside the case and out the case inside my bag and its charging while still protecting them. Another awesome feature is that you can charge the case and still keep the headphones inside the case and it will charge them up as well. Its also a great product for a great price because most battery packs are about the same price and depending on the mAh even more but that would mean you carrying around the battery, cable, and leaving the headphones exposed. Again, love this product. Super convenient!

    Was not sure if this was something I would keep when I purchased. Was not really sure what it was, but most reviews suggested it as a needed item. This is very cool. The case, which is really a small soft box with firm flexible sides. But, not something you would put in your pocket. Charge the case and it will keep the headphones charged and ready to go. There is a connector in the box that plugs into the headphone charger port. It "trickle" charges the headphones to keep them ready to go. It can be used to charge after use to extend finding a plugin or USB port as well. It is basically a mini battery pack, but more convenient to take with you and store. I left my headphones sitting for several weeks in the cupboard. When I was ready to use them, they were charged and ready to go. Did not have to charge them before use. Used while doing some yard work, it was well over 3 hours. When done still had music playing without issues. This case is a nice storage container to keep my headphone parts together. Worth the price! Yes it is a necessary, though not required, item for these headphones. Buy it!

    Game changer

    My review is based on two months after purchasing the case. I use my Bose Wireless Headphones exclusively for the gym. The case is a game changer since i have been able to charge my headphones on four different occasions (when battery has been below 20%) to full charge, without having to charge the case again. This means it saved me four charges with the traditional charger, in which I would have had to remembered to take out my headphones from my gym bag and plug them into my computer and possibly forget to load them in my bag again. Whenever you're done with a workout, all you have to do is plug them into the case and pick them up again (fully charged) the next day. Not sure if it's because the product is brand new that it has given me so many charges, but I will be happy with at least an average three charges before charging the case. Also, the case protects the headphones way better than what Bose provides with the purchase. Definitely recommend if you're lazy like me and/or forgetful of charging your headphones.

    Must Have Bose SoundSport Accessory

    This case is a perfect accessory for the Bose SoundSport headphones, but they could easily house alternate bluetooth headphones provided that they also charge via microUSB (Jaybird, Beats, etc). I use this case to carry my Bose SoundSport headphones in my bag. It provides excellent protection and ensures they are always topped off when I begin to use them at my desk. There is a short microUSB cable inside the case that you plug into the headphones. The case's built-in battery is able to charge the headphones several times before it needs to be recharged. You can charge the case and headphones at the same time and it will prioritize the headphones to full first and then top the case off as well. I have never had battery life anxiety with either the headphones or this case. I simply plug them in weekly-ish and there is no other impact on my life, which I believe is the hallmark feature of good technology. It gets right out of the way and lets you enjoy your music in wireless freedom.

    Great case for new wireless soundsports

    I bought this case because it looks really sexy! I had doubts about its value - it's simply a case with a small external battery built in. I succumbed to temptation because it looked really nice in the pictures. I was a bit disappointed when I had a chance to examine it for the first time. The top of the case felt flimsy - I almost wonder if it's hard cardboard sandwiched between two thin layers of black plastic??? If it isn't, that's what it feels like. The rest of the case is nice - the zipper fluidly zips without any snags. There's plenty of room inside. I guess I'm pretty happy with the case - I just wish the top of it was made with a more sturdy/durable material.

    Did Not Realize How Convenient This Would Be

    I love my wireless Bose headphones. I only use them at night when I am trying to drown out the sound of the TV (which my wife likes to listen to while I am trying to sleep). So, when I wake up the next day I usually only have around 60% of the battery left which stinks if I plan to use them during the day. The case allows me to charge while I take my headphones with me and protects them as well. My only negative is that I wish they came with a charging block. It comes with a charging cable but not the block. So, you have to plug it into a computer usb slot or use your iPhone (or whatever) charging block.

    Great for Traveling and "On-the-go"

    This headphone case has two great qualities: 1. It provides a "hard shell" case for my Bose Sound Sport headphone, giving it more protection when I put this in my bag. The Sound Sport headphones does come with a carrying pouch, but does not provide any sort of protection. I feel better with my Sound Sport headphones in this case. 2. It charges my headphones while in the case, which makes it easier for me not having to take them out and charge them all the time. The case is not bulky and good in size where I can place them in the smaller pockets or areas in a messenger bag or backpack. This is not a bad investment if your looking for more protection and the functionality of being able to charge at the same time.

    Great Charging and Storage Case

    The case works perfectly as described. I like the fact that you can plug the headphones inside the case and then by charging the case you can actually charge both products at the same time. The case charges the headphones quickly and it is a somewhat hard case that protects the headphones while they are stored inside. My only complaint is that the material that covers the outside of the case is very thin. I have had the case for probably a month and the skin (material) on the outside has already worn a hole / tear in the outside of the case from just storing in my gym bag. I would recommend this case for anyone with the bose sound sport headphones.

    Nice Protective Case for Bose SoundSport Wireless

    I bought this case during Black Friday when it sold for $29. Luckily, I caught it for that price. While it's a nice hard case that will keep protect and charge your pricey Bose SoundSport wireless earbuds, I don't think it's worth $49. When I finally opened the box, I found that the case needed to be charged as well, so I couldn't charge my earbuds immediately. That didn't matter as I was as home. I'll give this 4 stars because of price paid. To be honest, the only thing that I don't like about this case is the bulk. It's small but still a bit too bulky. I would prefer something a bit smaller that I can just drop into my purse without making purse extra heavy.

    I'm a bit of a skeptic. Would not have believed this case was so durable. I work construction, I bring it with me every day. It's been dropped and kicked accidentally a few times. I pick it up, wipe off, and it's like I just took it out of the box. And the charge works as advertised. I can leave it my lunch box and not worry about if I forgot to plug it in the wall outlet. I get 3 full charges so I can listen all day while I work. Thumbs up Bose . Kudos on the sound sport earbuds too ,what a combination!

    I wasn't sure if I was going to like this charging case, but I said why not and purchased one. I love this case. It's sturdy and keeps your headphone safe while charging. It also makes it easier to find my headphones because when I'm not using them I put them back in the box even if I'm not charging them. The headphones charge fast and the box has an indicator light to let you know when the headphones are fully charged; as well as a button to push on the box to check its charge. I don't use my headphones every day, so I can go a while before charging. I'd recommend it for the person on the go.

    Its sweet that Bose engineers thought about making a charging case for the SoundSport. This is great, not only because the case charges the headphones but also because it protects the headphones. The case is harder, more rugged than the soft case that comes with the headphones. The one complaint is that the charging case does not come with a charging cable. However, its easy to charge and use. The SoundSport headphones fit inside securely and makes everything more portable. This is a must have accessory.

    All cases should be as good as this one! The Soundsport Wireless Headphones fit very well and it provides more protection than any soft-shelled case. The indicator LEDs are intuitive and easy to see for charging the headphones and the internal battery. No danger of over-charging or charging too fast... Some people have complained that the case it too expensive... That may be so, but, if you are are going to spend some money on higher end headphones/earbuds, you should also spend a little more money to protect them.

    This charging case is a total game changer!!! So simple to use and very portable!! This case holds charge within its built in "battery" so you can recharge those dying headphones while on the go at least 6 more times within the case itself. This is such an awesome feature to have backup charge-ability at any time. I also love that the case is hard and durable. Well worth the money. Bose knows their stuff. You cant go wrong with this!!!

    Zipper broke in less than a month

    Worked great until the zipper broke. I took it to Bestbuy to see if they could help and they referred me to Bose. Bose said it’s considered an accessory so they don’t usually cover that. I feel like the 15 day return policy is only so that people can be suckered into buying the extended warranty (read: another way to spend more money). Bose is great, but Bestbuy, not so much.

    Won't work for Quiet Comfort 20

    So, there's really nothing wrong with this case, but it should have been designed just an inch and a half longer and it would have worked for the Quiet Comfort 20 earphones. I think this was a big "miss" on Bose's part, as the QC 20 has a miserable little zip bag that also does not really give a decent fit to the power source on this product. I've always held Bose in the highest regard, but my last three purchases have been disappointing. BTW, I'm sure this case works fine for the Bose Bluetooth earbuds, as it was intended.

    The case that comes with Bose SoundSport Bluetooth headphone is soft and does not have sufficient room to quickly pack the headphone. This battery case by Bose solves that problem. It is a solid case with great protection and plenty of room inside. It triples the battery life of the headset. Also, you can charge the case and headset with one charger cable on the outside while the headset is packed inside. Brilliant design. Highly recommended!

    I have used this case with my phones for about a month now. No issues and I always have a ready charged set of buds. The hard case it very protective and pretty easy to use. The indicator lights tell you when the phones are charged and when the case needs charged. I have recharged my phones up to three complete times without recharging the case, but I think I could get four full charges out of it. A must for every backpack or briefcase if you always want your SoundSports at the ready.

    I enjoy using this with my Bose sound sport wireless headphones. Provides a sturdy case for them and with the six hour battery life it's a great charging station. I use them for the week and when I'm home from traveling for work I plug them in and back in my bag they go the following Monday. I think it's a bit overpriced for what it is and wish it was a bit slimmer but it gets the job done well
