Sure, Apple AirPods are popular and have a huge fan base, but they’re not the be-all and end-all for wireless earbuds. Truth is, there are many premium wireless earbuds that can actually do a lot of things better than Apple AirPods—especially for those who use them when exercising.
A prime example: The Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Headphones. They’re comfortable, sleek and, of course, they deliver exceptional audio. And right now, you can score them for an all-time low price of $140—that’s $20 off—at QVC.
And if you’d rather not pay in one chunk, QVC lets you opt for three 'Easy Pay' payments of just $47, with no interest at all. Plus, you get free shipping! And if you're new to QVC? You can get an additional $10 off with promo code 'OFFER' at checkout. Hooray! Even cheaper!
Expect rich audio—it’s Bose, after all
So what makes these better than Apple AirPods? For starters, the sound quality.
One of the biggest criticisms of AirPods is that they produce flat, humdrum audio. Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Headphones feature the kind of impressive clarity and power you’d expect from an iconic brand like Bose. Audio to transport you, entertain you, distract you in the best possible way—so you can run that extra mile, do that extra rep, scale that extra hill.
You can even customize your audio experience by calibrating the earbuds with the Bose Connect App for Android or Apple iPhones. See the buds in action here.
"I have these mini headphones and the sound is incredible," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "Deep bass, treble and mellow tones are just as good as the big headphones. You can't tell the difference between the two except the mini-headphones are much lighter and are very comfortable..."
Work out without having your earbuds slip out
With a comfy in-ear design, Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Headphones are built for exercise. They come with silicone ‘StayHear and Sport’ ear tips of various sizes, so you can find your ideal fit. Water-resistant and sweat-proof, these earbuds are safe if it starts to drizzle. AirPods? Not so much.
Meanwhile, their battery life is up to 15 hours, and reviewers love their location features: "These sound excellent and the battery life, at least in my experience is excellent," shared a satisfied QVC shopper. "Calls and music are clear and the button layout has a very natural feel. More than anything, I really loved the ability to use the app for locating either bud if I set it down; it basically allows for GPS location and echo-location of either piece easily which proved to be extremely beneficial."
At $140—down from $160—the Bose SoundSports are some of the best wireless earbuds available. They’re a perfect motivator to keep your exercise game on track all year long, and they come in three colors: All Black, Midnight Blue or Bright Orange. The choice is yours! "I love the colors and beautiful precise sound," added another five-star reviewer.
At their all-time lowest price ever? Sounds like a winner to us.
