Hello Busher


Thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community Forums. 


You will not be able to connect your Bose Sport earbuds to a device without Bluetooth. You will need a Bluetooth adaptor. You will need an adaptor that has the following specs: 


  • Bluetooth version: 5.1
  • Codec: SBC and AAC

I hope this helps.
