Priced at a whopping $250 back in the day, these fitness-friendly bad boys seem to have received a permanent $50 discount at some point. Despite their advanced age, Bose's first completely cord-free earphones rarely go below the $199 mark... unless you're willing to snag a refurbished pair off eBay. Don't worry, we're talking about manufacturer refurbished units sold by the manufacturer itself at only $119.95 in your choice of black, midnight blue, and orange colors.
The heavily marked-down Bose SoundSport Free also come with a full 1-year warranty and standard "satisfaction guarantee", which makes perfect sense considering Bose thoroughly inspects, tests, and if needed, "remanufactures" these babies before putting them back on sale to ensure they look and work practically as good as new. Of course, you're still looking at pre-owned headphones, but odds are you won't be able to notice any cosmetic or functional difference between these and brand-new units.
Designed to easily stand out even from today's increasingly large pack of true wireless earbuds, the SoundSport Free come with unique StayHear+ Sport tips providing a secure and comfortable fit, as well as a sweat and weather-resistant build, and five hours of battery life, which you can bump all the way up to 15 hours when taking the obligatory charging case into consideration.
Granted, a number of "modern" alternatives offer various fancy features and audio technologies that the Bose SoundSport Free can't match, but its primary rival is probably Apple's Beats Powerbeats Pro, which costs a great deal more than 120 bucks with a 1-year warranty included.
