While over and on-ear headphones tend to offer better sound stage and additional comfort compared to in-ear headphones, they are a bit big and not as easy to pocket. Well if you’re in the market for in-ear headphones or maybe one that’s designed specifically for sports, you might be interested to learn that Bose announced SoundTrue and SoundSport in-ear headphones.
Both models are sport the same hardware, however the difference here is that the SoundSport headphones are designed for physical activity in mind and have been engineered to be both sweat and water resistant, and according to Bose, more so than their predecessors the SIE2 and SIE2i which they will be replacing.
The SoundTrue headphones are also be replacing the IE2, MIE2, and MIE2i headphones, but apart from that, the new headphones from Bose will utilize the company’s TriPort technology and use Bose’s StayHear ear tips that help keep the earphones in place, which we guess would be important for those using it for physical activity. The headphones will also feature an inline remote and microphone that allows it to be used as a hands-free kit as well as allow users to control their media. They are available for purchase via Bose’s retail stores, online store, or authorize dealers.
