    True Bose Sound! Pulse monitor is spot on!

    I had the Bose Bluetooth Sound Sport head phones and also have the Plantronics, LG Tone Infiinium, and Jabra Sport Headphones. These are the same as the Bose Sound Sport; however the pulse monitor is an added bonus. The Bose Connect App works great in conjunction with these headphones. If you are an "Audio Phile or a Fitness Person" these are the headphones I endorse. Plus with Best Buy Protection you can relax knowing that you are covered for the life cycle of the EPIC Bluetooth Headphones. Respectfully, Bill Hubbell

    These have clear sound and stay in well while jogging. The heart rate monitor works well, but once I get sweaty I do end up having to readjust them to get a good read. My biggest dislike is that you have to use the Bose app to see what your heart rate is and if you need to leave the app to choose music in a different app, the heart rate monitor has to recalibrate again before it will show. If someone already has a Fitbit or the like, the monitor feature in this model is not at all necessary.

    The sound quality is excellent. They are lightweight and comfortable with the right sized eartips. Paired with my phone making calls was easy and the recipient heard me clearly as well. Battery life was as advertised. I used them on and off listing to music over a course of seven hours. The only thing that could possibly be better is the heart rate monitor. It seemed a bit finicky and would jump around a bit so it is a bit hard to say how accurate it is but that was when using the bose app. I had yet to try using another fitness app.

    Initially I brought the SoundSport and they are good , but I wasn't satisfied since I recently started into fitness and so I returned them and got the soundsport pulse in which I think it well worth the extra money. It keep me informed with calories burned. Quality in sound is good never had any other wireless earbuds to compare to, but to regular headphones it definitely makes a difference. They are also NOT noise canceling headphones but that ok I prefer them like this for outdoor activities.

    I had never had Bluetooth headphones before so I was very excited to try these out. Pros: great sound quality, volume control on the headphones, heart rate monitor on left earbud, easy to use app, comfortable, light, holds charge well Cons: cord connecting two buds is an awkward length and gets pushed around by my ponytail, earbuds are a little heavy, sometimes heart rate gets "lost" Overall, a good pair of headphones for sport with great sound quality and some cool features. Some details could be better.

    Good for audio, terrible for calls

    The headphones fit well, sound very good, and do everything you would expect of 150$ headphones...Except that are garbage for phone calls. The microphone is so sensitive that people cannot often understand me even in my own home while it's quiet. I move they hear it, my dog wags his tail...they hear it. If you want just gym headphones go ahead but if you want to take calls with these avoid!

    Bose - A Good Choice

    I've used these for around a month now during my workouts, and I like them. The ear plugs can be adjusted with three different sizes, there is no support to hold them over your ears, so you will need to get it right for them to stick. Once they are in, I don't normally have any issues keeping them in (they have slipped out before). Sound is very high quality, and the charge lasts through a few workouts- I think they advertise 5 hours, and they stay true to that number from my perception.

    Honestly the best earphone's I've owned. Fit, sound, video-audio sync, everything surpasses my expectations. If I HAD to pick out a downside it would be the size. It's slightly big but you can only feel that when you're lying down on one side. I tried the truly wireless bose and they were great but the video-audio sync was off and I couldn't keep it. These stay comfortably and securely in your ear when you run/workout too. 9.8/10.

    Bose has made yet another fantastic product that gives off the signature sound Bose is known for with their products. Slightly tough to fit into the ears perfectly, but everything else is so awesome. The sound quality is exceptional, they have never disconnected/skipped for me, they are true to their proposed battery life, and the heart rate is accurate (compared to my Apple Watch and a Fitbit on both wrists). Overall, job well done as always Bose and keep up the wonderful products.

    These headphones are a great fit and are extremely comfortable thanks to the (3) sizing options included. This insures that they stay put during any kind of physical activity or workout! The sound is great, however, I do wish they went a bit louder. The heart rate monitor causes the battery to die much faster and is only available when the app is open. Does not pair to Apple Watch. Overall solid purchase for anyone looking to get headphones for an active lifestyle.

    I had previously tried the BOSE over ear BT headphones .While good, there not for what I Use BT headphone for. THESE are the answer! The earpiece fit is wonderful and comfortable (at least for my ears). The sounds is impressive for BT. The size, and weight are perfect. The battery life rocks. The connection was easy and the build quality ... It's BOSE! This is the set you need if your physical at all ( running, weight lifting, work outside) you need these ASAP

    Sound Quality is superb. Heart Rate Monitor is pretty accurate. Similar readings to what I get on my Garmin fenix. The size looks big but when you put them on, you do not really feel them as they are light. In my several runs outside, the sound sport pulse never fell out. If you love the ear bud way inside your ears, this is not for you. If you like a light set of earbuds that sit somewhat outside but never fall out, these are great.

    and the heart monitor sensor is a plus, any workout is perfect and the cable even so is wireless make it easy for me, battery life is very good, considering that i only use it for bike or 45 minutes work out, and the microphone is not doubt clear, not complaint there, the heart monitor sensor is close to what i get in the apple watch comparing one to the other but the work very similar

    I recently purchased another competitor's less expensive wireless headset for my wife and immediately returned it because of cutting in and out, and very poor sound quality. I then purchased the Bose unit which is far superior in every regard. Great sound, stays in ear well while on treadmill and cross trainer. I recently purchased another unit for myself and both are still operating as designed. Good job Bose!

    I was looking for a good pair of headphones for running. When I first tried this pair on, the earbuds wouldn't fit into my ear, luckily, they came with different sizes and the smallest ear piece fit perfectly. I was hesitant when I started running but the ear buds stayed in place the whole time, and the sound quality was excellent. I also liked how I could see my heart rate on the app. Great gift for someone who enjoys working out this holiday season.

    Decent SQ but heart rate monitor is unreliable.

    The Bose Soundsport Pulse offers decent sound quality but its heart rate monitoring feature is unreliable and finicky. Ear buds are larger than other sport headphones and I found them fairly secure but can get loose if sweat enters your ear. Cable does a commendable job minimizing microphonic but the buttons feel cheap given the price point. I would opt for the regular Soundsport and save $50.

    Over the last 8 years I have tried almost every headset. All of them have failed and died mainly because of "sweat resistance ". I sweat very very heavily . So my wireless headset needs to be nearly waterproof. Bose soundsport pulse have lived up to challenge. I even get in the steam room with them. The sound quality is great crisp highs and deep rich bass. If I have a complaint,I would want a level or 2 higher in volume.

    No iOS 12 support for heart rate monitor

    The audio for the Bose products are exceptional. I owned the SoundSport before and I would recommend this model above the SoundSport Pulse. Save yourself the $$. The heart rate monitor has not been supported since iOS 10 (the work-around is rebooting the phone and re-pairing the Bluetooth device) From reading the support site, Bose has no plans for fixing it.

    I tried 3 different headphones before I found these. The beats hurt my ears, the LG's kept rubbing on my neck, but the Bose Pulse fit just right. They do disconnect and reconnect from the heart rate after doing cardio for 40 minutes, but it's not enough for my apple watch to notice. These earbuds are very light weight, and I barely notice them during my workout. These have quickly moved to my favorite pair of workout headphones.

    fit is great, sound is great, heart monitoring actually works, so much to like about this product! I especially like how they "float" in your ears; fit is really secure, but you dont have to jam them into your ear lobe to stay in place, so is easy to wear these for a long long time.. phone calls sound very nice too, so if you are looking for a great sounding, great fitting stereo in ear headset, definitely give these a shot!
