CNET recently revealed a detailed image of Bose's latest wireless wireless headset called Bose Earbuds 500. The product will be released later this year to replace Bose Soundsport Free with 3 colors: black, white and blue. There is no exact product specification yet, but we can see that Bose has changed a lot for Earbuds 500.
If Bose Soundsport Free comes in three colors: black, blue, and orange, the Earbuds 500 Bose has replaced the familiar orange white.
We can easily see that Earbuds 500 is not only smaller in size but also the compact charging dock. Bose also changes the way the dock is placed and this reduces the thickness of the charging box.
The size of Earbuds 500 is much smaller than Soundsport Free, which will definitely bring a more comfortable wearing feeling as well as fit more ears. One of the changes is the Earbuds 500, which has an exterior made of rough plastic, not as polished as its own.
Bose still equips with LED strips to indicate the battery is very intuitive. Another change is that they also have a USB-C port for their latest product. However, it is still unclear how much of the dock's battery life as well as what the headset is, as well as whether Bose has a fast charger for its product.
Another small change comes from exposed pins in the charging dock. New charging pins have smaller contact area. I see there is a button with a Bluetooth icon also, it is unclear what the function key does.
Earbuds 500 is equipped with sensors that can automatically play / pause music when removing from the ear
On the headset also has microphone holes that help ensure clear listening. If you don't know Earbuds 500, you can talk to both parties, but Soundsport Free only allows one-way conversations.
Bose still keeps its eartips and exclusive earhooks for good ear support for sports practice. This time the company also carefully numbered the eartips so that users can distinguish the sizes quickly.
Adding a photo of the white version combined with the new blue is quite elegant. This is the new color version of this year. If it's like his senior, maybe Bose will come up with some limited color versions later.
There is no official price yet or the time of selling Bose Earbuds 500. Bose said that this is only a trial version, so there may be some more changes when the official launch. Selling time may fall into the shopping season later this year.
