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 their earbuds when exercising.
A prime example: The Bose SoundSport Free True Wireless Earbuds. They’re comfortable, sleek and, of course, they deliver exceptional audio. And right now, you can score them for $160—that’s $40 off—at HSN. You’ll also get $20 off your first order with code HSN2021.
If you’d rather not pay in one chunk, HSN lets you opt for four FlexPay payments of just $40, with no interest at all. Plus, you get free shipping!
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 True Wireless Earbuds 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.
“Bose has done it again,” raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “I must say these are the best earbuds ever: light, comfortable, stays in the ear and the sound quality is the best.”
Work out without having your earbuds slip out
With a comfy in-ear design, Bose SoundSport Free earbuds 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.
Their battery life is up to 15 hours, and reviewers rave: “They fit snug and the sound is always outstanding from Bose. Well worth the money,” says one happy shopper. “I use mine for walking and bike riding. Never an issue.” Another reviewer bottom-lines it: “The sound is excellent compared to others at the same price range. And they fit comfortably in the ear.”
At $160—down from $200—the Bose SoundSport Free are some of the best true wireless earbuds available. They’re a perfect motivator to keep your exercise game on track all year long, and they come in two color combos: All Black or Navy & Citron. The choice is yours!
At $40 off? Sounds like a winner to us.
