“They are a technology-packed solution that’s stripped down to just two rugged earbuds that feel great, stay connected, stay in, and sound amazing,” Maguire added. The rugged and IPX4 rated water and sweat resistance device houses a new antennae system to maintain a strong connection between the two earplugs and the phone or tablet they are paired to.

The Proprietary StayHear+ Sport tips create a secure, firm fit that is comfortable even if you play music for longer hours. Its charging case magnetically holds each earbud in place, doubles as storage and provides two additional full charges for up to 10 more hours of battery life. When not stowed away, a new “Find My Buds” feature on the Bose Connect App displays the last time and place they were used to locate them quickly.
