Very Disappointing Inferior Sound Quality from the Bose Sport Earbuds. I was expecting the sound quality to sound identical if not improved compared to the Discontinued Bose SoundSport Wired Earbuds that I still use and love on a daily basis (even though they’re malfunctioning). The sound quality from the wired soundsport is still legendary to me because of the Triport technology used in the speakers to create a bigger sound profile to sound more flat and detailed with a slightly saturated tone to the treble in order to create a very nicely detailed balanced sound. Sadly, the Bluetooth Bose Sport Earbuds completely lack that kind of sound profile since they sound more tinny and muffled, lacking depth and a bigger sound with a wider stereo image.
I’m an audiophile and I can immediately tell that the frequency response is weaker compared to the wired bose soundsport earbuds. Frankly I don’t even know if the Bose Sport Earbuds used the Triport technology. My guess is probably not.
Very disappointing, looks like sadly I’ll have to look elsewhere for an excellent bluetooth sound quality pair of earbuds until Bose can eventually match their sound profile to the 2015 soundsport that I have at some point.
I hope that Bose will eventually release a high quality pair of bluetooth earbuds that have phenomenally tuned sound drivers with Triport technology that will sound just as awesome as the soundsport eventually but until then.
I’ll look elsewhere.
