The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

The right earbud is a bit more difficult to put on compared to the left which slides on withe ease. After about 30-45 minuets of use my right ear is sore from the way the earbud wraps around the ear.

Re: Sport Open Earbuds - soar ear

Hey pakapablo, 


Thank you for your post and welcome to the Community! 

I'm sorry to hear of the issues you are experiencing with the fit and comfort of your Sport Open Earbuds. I'll be more than happy to help you in any way that I can. 


The Sport Open Earbuds have the same fit for each earbud. Therefore, it is likely that your ears are slightly different shapes. This is true for almost everyone. 


I would recommend that if you are experiencing some pain, double-check the fit of the earbuds. I have included a LINK HERE with some great tips to ensure the most comfortable fit for you. 


I hope this helps! If you have any further questions, I'll be more than happy to help!
