Athletes who are active on the street like to listen to music, but also want to know what is happening in their environment. Bose has the solution.
The new Bose Sport Open Earbuds are special earbuds. In fact, they’re not plugs at all, they’re earhooks. Where a specially designed transducer radiates sound into the ear canal. Without having to put anything in the same ear canal. And that means that in addition to music, you’ll also be able to hear all the sounds around you, such as a calling cyclist or honking car. As such, you will be interactively involved in traffic in the broadest sense of the term. And that will undoubtedly improve safety.
Not disturbing to others
What’s nice about Bose Sport Open Earbuds is that they’re not bone transducers, so you won’t be bothered by tickling vibrations. Bose also reports that the sound produced by the open ears (let’s call them that) can only be heard by the wearer, even when listening at higher volumes.
Hands-free calls are a pleasant experience on the receiving end, thanks to the built-in wind-noise and noise-cancelling microphone system. Furthermore, the open ears are IPX4 splash-proof. An app for iOS or Android opens up even more possibilities.
The Bluetooth 5.1 Bose Sport Open Earbuds are available from just about now. For now only in the US, for an amount of $199.95.
