I’ve never been a huge fan of in-ear headphones before but I finally gave in and picked up these Bose TriPort Headphones because I was sick of trying to work out with full sized headphones. When these arrived two months ago I immediately hooked them up to my iPod and went for a jog to see how it went. I was happy with the fact that they stayed in my ears and did not shake loose like some other ear buds I’ve tried do. They took a mile or so to get used to but that is most likely because I’m not used to anything being in my ear. After that I was happy with how comfortable they were, by the end of my run I actually could hardly feel them which is exactly what I was hoping for.
The thing I’ve always hated about in-ear headphones in the past was that the sound was never right. I thought it was impossible to have such small speakers create any sort of believable bass but I’m glad to say I was wrong. The sound on these Bose TriPorts was surprisingly good. Of course, not as great as full sized headphones but still very good. I could actually feel the bass in my Rap songs which was nice. The midrange and high levels sounded great to me as well, overall they have a very natural and balanced sound to them which I really enjoyed.
I’ve been using them for a while now and really am getting happier with them every day. The cord is long enough to meet my needs but doesn’t really get in the way at all. They are very durable as I did once accidently pull them out of my ears and they fell to the pavement without so much as a scratch. I’ll end my Bose TriPort In-Ear headphones review by saying, if you’ve never tried ear buds before, give these a chance. You won’t be disappointed.
