What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Bose SoundTrue Ultra in-ear headphones
  • These fit very comfortably (probably the most comfortable noise isolating headphones on the market)
  • One last note: the silicone earpiece fits into the ear canal, eliminating a good deal of ambient environmental noise.
  • The silicone molds come in three sizes to adjust to your ear. For me, I use a small size. It's a perfect fit I can wear for hours without worry. The volume up and down buttons work on my Google Pixel 1st Gen, the carrying case is clever, and overall I just love these.
  • I am so disappointed with these Bose earbuds. This is my third set in two years. I use mine about 12 - 14 hours per day so need earbuds that don't hurt my ears which Bose certainly fits the bill.
  • Fit very deep into ear so not very comfortable, blocks out most background noise so not good for urban living
Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
  • Needless worry, they are very light weight and have the same type of soft yet durable wing that fits comfortably in your ear that the wired ones have.
  • For the price and sound quality it's well worth it. Comfortable and lightweight. If the chord could be a bit longer it would make movement easier.
  • Light weight, fit great, and sound awesome.
  • Great, light weight and a must have for work outs.
  • Comfortable. Fits in my ear much better than my lg pro.

What customers say about "Features"
Bose SoundTrue Ultra in-ear headphones
  • The vocals and sound is amazing on these headphones, exceeding my expectations.
  • Sound quality is amazing. Great fit. Love the Bose headphones. My whole family each has a pair or two (although different types).
  • Good sound isolation. Muffles outside sound, not active sound cancellation.
  • I ended up exchanging these for the sport version. The sound quality is fantastic, but the sound of the wire bumping or brushing up against your clothes is intolerable. The sport version is much better.
  • The sound is not the best. don't have rich sounds neither deep bass. my previous Bose IE2 headset sounds superior to this model.
  • Worst audio quality. Sound like cheap $10 headphones and cheap plastic too. Get the older generation they are perfect.
Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
  • Long battery life and great sound. Definitely recommend
  • Great sound, average battery life. I bought to connect to Samsung SUHD TV. Wife sleeps and I crank it up. Pairs with TV, but Dish Hopper can't find it.
  • Good sound quality for listening to music and clear for calls, easy blue tooth pairing.
  • Doesn't block external noise (great for walking the dog and not getting hit by cars)
  • Good battery life but not sure they would make it through a cross country flight.
  • Battery life is nowhere near as long as Bose says in the manual or description.
  • Battery life is fine but not so long that you don't have to remember to charge after a work out or two.
