Battery Life Soundsport Free

Hi, I understand the battery life is supposed to be 5 hours. I am using them for running (marathon training...so long runs) and they are not lasting 3 hours. Is this normal? Also, what about volume level, how much does that affect it?

Hi Pear,

 

Thanks re responding. If you feel like your headphones are not lasting as long as they should I would recommend

  • Updating your headphones by going to btu.bose.com on your computer and following the instructions.

If that doesn't help, I would contact your local support team for assistance. Here is a link you can use. Click on your region, scroll down until you see "Contact Us."

Hi Pear,

 

Thanks for posting. That's a great question. It's also difficult to answer. The manual says:

 

"A full charge of the headphones allows up to five hours of use"

 

Its difficult to quantify what "up to 5 hours" means. Depending on volume level played I would assume you would get 3 to 5 hours of usage.

 

Let me inquire a little deeper on this end and ill post whatever I find.

Hi again, so yes the last few Sundays I have the same problem. Even with the volume on low. Almost exactly at 3 hours the earphones die. Volume clearly doesnt play a factor in mine anyway. So this isnt normal correct? Should be more like 5 hours? What should I do.
