This worked for me as well. The steps I took to replicate are:

1. Plug in case to Windows 10 Dell Inspirion computer (this comp just happened to be what I use).

2. Place headphones into case.  Go to Bluetooth & other devices configuration screen. Scroll down until you see the heading Other Devices. You should see two Bose Free SoundSport entries under that list:

3. Remove the headphoners from the case and those two entries will disappear.

4. Using the bluetooth button on the left earbud, pair the Bose Free SoundSport headphones with your Windows 10 device. 

5. The headphones will appear as Connected voice, music:

6. You should now be able to hear sound from both earbuds.

 

Basically, your goal should be to ensure that under the Audio section of the Bluetooth & other devices configuration screen, you read Connected music, voice.

 

Note to Bose: This process needs to be easier. Please research a solution for easier connectivity. It is a Bose problem, not a user issue nor a Windows 10 software issue. Audio can be heard from both earbuds so it's not a hardware issue, but probably an issue from the master/puppet connectivity design. It's definitely fixable.

Finally, I found one simple solution that works for me. Just need to update Windows 10 to May 2019 Update (1903)!

Note: This Windows update is quite big and takes very long to finish.

Re: Soundsport Free Left bud does not work with computer(Dell Inspiron)

I had to delete both devices from the device manager, it connected to the wrong device and gave mono sound for me.

 

steps taken

 

  1. put both earbuds in the case
  2. start "device manager"  on laptop
  3. go to audio devices
  4. delete 2 devices with the name i gave them
  5. take out earbuds and put in ear
  6. click rescan in the device manager

the last step took about 5 seconds, I had music playing via the laptop speakers but it switched to the earbuds within the 5 seconds
