Sure, Apple AirPods have a huge fan base, but they’re not the only game in town. Truth is, there are many earbuds that can actually do a lot of things better than AirPods.
A prime example: The Bose Sport Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds. Comfortable and sleek, they deliver exceptional audio. They're also sweat-proof, so they're a no-brainer when exercising. And right now, you can score them for an all-time low price of $159—that’s $20 off—at QVC. Want to sweeten your deal? Take an additional $10 off by using code 'OFFER' at checkout.
And if you’d rather not shell out that $159 all at once, QVC lets you opt for five 'Easy Pays' of just $32, with no interest at all. Plus, this week only, you get free shipping!
Expect rich and robust audio—it’s Bose, after all
So what makes these better than Apple AirPods? How about sound quality?
One of the biggest criticisms of AirPods is that they produce flat, humdrum audio. Bose Sport Earbuds feature the kind of impressive clarity and power you’d expect from an iconic brand—audio to transport you, entertain you, distract you in the best possible way so you can run that extra mile, do that extra rep and scale that extra hill.
What about volume control? Glad you asked! The buds employ touch-screen technology that allows you to adjust your volume by simply gliding your finger along the back of the right-hand bud. You can even customize your audio experience by calibrating the earbuds with the Bose Connect App for Android or Apple iPhones.

"Finally a pair of wireless earbuds with amazing connectivity and sound quality," raved a five-star reviewer. "That’s all I need to say—I have tried and returned many pairs to get to this point. Worth every penny. The technology is amazing for a small earbud. Bass is excellent, which was a big surprise. Highly recommended!!"
Work out without having your earbuds slip out
With a comfy in-ear design, Bose Sport Earbuds are built for exercise. Water-resistant and sweat-proof, these earbuds are safe if it starts to drizzle. AirPods? Not so much. Meanwhile, their battery life spans an impressive 15 hours.
They also come with silicone 'StayHear Max' ear tips of various sizes, so you can find your ideal fit. Shoppers are in love. "These are incredible earbuds," shared a satisfied QVC shopper. "...They stay put and are really comfortable and fit nicely. The sound quality is phenomenal, very clear and crisp. They also come with a charging case which is nice, and the battery is long lasting."
At $159—down from $179—the Bose Sport Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds are some of the best wireless earbuds available. They’re a perfect motivator to keep your exercise game on track, and they come in three colors: Baltic Blue (pictured above), Glacier White or Triple Black.
"These are the best earbuds. I gave up my Apple Air Pods for these and don't regret it," added another five-star reviewer. "The sound is awesome! Fit very well in the ears. Love the charging case also. I've gone back and re-played music videos on YouTube and it's unbelievable what I missed before with the background sounds. It brings music to life in a way you've never heard it."
All of this, and at their all-time lowest price ever? Sounds like a winner to us.
