Bose today launched a new pair of true wireless earbuds with a unique focus – Make users aware of their surroundings. The new Bose Sport Open Earbuds feature an open-ear design that ensures users are aware of their surroundings. The earphones have a housing that sits over the ear canal with practically no skin contactinstead of going in or over the ear canal to carry sound waves. At a time when ANC is in high demand for headphones and wireless earbuds, Bose here caters to a niche audience seeking environmental awareness.
No ANC, but that’s the whole point

There’s a contoured ear hook to keep the earbuds in place during exercise or vigorous physical activity, and you don’t have to worry about sweat too Bose Sport Open Earbuds are IPX4 certified.
“Each enclosure uses a tiny dipole transducer that is placed and positioned for loud and clear personal audio that stays on the ear – and” breaks off “everywhere else,” the company adds.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years, having worked with names like NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from the latest news, I’ve checked out my fair share of devices that range from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I’ve also interviewed tech managers and appeared as a moderator on YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets.
