I too am less than impressed. I’m on holiday in Cyprus & bought these bad boys so I could Sunbathe & float around in the pool while banging out some tunes & listen to my audio books. It has taken me 2 hold days to come to the realisation that when they are exposed to the sun they are about as much use as a chocolate fire guard.
How many more innocents are going to fall foul of this design fault.
Would suggest in future they are sold with a very clear warning explaining their limited capability.
So that's it? These expensive headphones are worthless unless you live somewhere goldilocks would approve of? I'm in Spain, it's not that hot, early 30s, I'm barely sweating, and these things keep switching off. My old, cheap ones didn't, so i never even considered it might be a problem when I stepped up to these. Not good enough bose

What a coincidence: I too am on holiday in Cyprus and I too cannot use my Soundsport Frees by the pool due to them shutting down. Back to wired headphones for me then...
I bought mine in Stephanis in Larnaca. Would have been nice if they could have given me a warning, however it's still early days, so I'm guessing their yet to get hold of this little nugget of information and i didnt have the time to return to the shop and give them some feedback.
