Just curious if anyone uses the bose soundsport wireless headphones with their iPhone. If so, how do you like them?

I'm considering getting a pair because I don't like in canal headphones.

I have a set, I like them rather a lot. There are some minor issues - sometimes when cycling the wind noise is a little more than I'd like, and they're not quite as comfortable as the soundsport wired version. All in all, I think I'd probably buy them again.

I was very interested in getting a set before the recall. Since then I got my 7+ and want to wait for the AirPods to release before I decide. Took the wife to the Bose store to have her try the demo pair. She hated them. So I tried them again and I didn't like them as I did before. They felt flimsy and the call quality was just OK.

One thing I really like about the AirPods is the charging system. Having to plug a micro USB cable into the EarPods vs charging the dental floss case and just dropping the airpods in seems very inviting.

I have the soundsport wireless and think they're great. as for the recall, it was more of "if you have trouble with it, we'll replace it". I don't have trouble with mine, they're great. They look bulky but feel light in your ears and they are comfy. as noted above, not as comfy as the wired version but very comfy. More base-y than the wired versions too. I think bose has the best designed headphones in terms of comfort. all of their materials are to make things feel better when you wear it.

I also have a pair of the soundsport wireless headphones and love them dearly. I bought them about 3 months ago and have had no issues.

I bought a pair about two months ago. I have the wired pair the quiet comfort 20's. I really like the soundsport's but the only thing I don't like is the battery life. Seems like a couple of gym sessions and I have to plug them in. Also the sound quality is not as good as the 20's either. IMO
