Bose has announced new sport earbuds that the company says don’t go in your ears or cover them. Instead, they feature an all-new design combined with Bose OpenAudio to keep users aware of their surroundings.
The Bose Sports Open Earbuds feature a “contoured earhook attached to an entirely new kind of enclosure that sits above — not over, not in, not on — the ear canal to redefine personal listening.”
These are the perfect pair of headphones well suited for workouts and several other activities as the new design in combination with Bose OpenAudio keeps users conscious of the sounds in the environment.
The new earbuds perfectly match the growing yearnings by sportsmen and women for headphones that allow them to remain focused on their activity without wires and neckbands, and not needing to occasionally remove such headphones to hear the sound of traffic while on the road.
It is not for the first time that the companies are trying to build such an earbud that can allow the user to listen to the sounds of the environment.
The US tech giant, Apple, came up with AirPods Pro which has a transparency mode. This mode allows you to hear the noises near you even when your earbud is on.
How do the Earbuds work?
The Bose Sports Open Earbuds, when worn, grips the user’s ear’s outer ridge without any skin contact.
The enclosure uses a tiny dipole transducer for producing high-fidelity audio. The innovative earbuds also have a microphone system that will isolate your voice while chatting on the phone.
There’s a single button on the left bud to access your smart assistant of choice. There’s also one button on the right bud for phone call activities mainly.
The Bose Sports Open Earbuds feature Bluetooth 5.1, IPX4 rating, and eight hours of battery life. The earbuds are set to launch in mid-January for $199 on Bose.com and Best Buy.
