Earbuds are always my go-to when I’m listening to music because I don’t like over the ear cans as much. In the dozens of pairs I’ve owned or tested, however, I’ve never had one with a heartrate monitor until now. SMS Audio’s BioSport earbuds partner with the RunKeeper app to help you keep track of your workout pacing and heartrate. If you don’t care about that as much, the wireless Sync by 50 earbuds provide a rechargeable and fully wireless listening experience. Come take a look at both.
Sound or silence? You don’t usually have much control over how loud your world is going to be. Until I tried a pair of Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling in-ear headphones, I had no idea the value of blocking out background noise. Whether you’re on a train, plane, bus, studying in a library, or in my case, constantly in rooms full of small people, noise cancelling headphones will block everything but whatever you’re really trying to hear.
In today’s blog I review two different sets of Monster iSport In-Ear Sound Isolating Bluetooth Headphones. These headphones fall into different price points, but they do have a lot in common and were both designed for an active lifestyle. If you’re an active person and are tired of flimsy headphone sets that short out from a bit of sweat, or simply can’t handle the shock / impact of your exercise regimen, read on to learn all about these high performance phones. You may just find a set of sports headphones that can finally keep up with you!
I walk about an hour a day to the SkyTrain and home, rain or shine. It’s a great time to listen to new music on Spotify or call friends and family; I’ve spend the past few years flipping between headphones from Bose, Monster, and my Apple EarPods. The one thing that most of them have had in common is that they have a cable running from the earphones to my phone. That cable gets snagged, pulls and will either rip out of the audio jack or pull my phone out of my pocket on a bad day. For the last week I’ve been using the Sony Bluetooth® Wireless Sports Headset on my walk. Have they solved the cable problem and are they worth buying? Read on to find out!
A few weeks ago I launched myself into a fitness program that makes cross-fit look like a walk in the park with a bunch of puppies. Needless to say, it’s tough. So you can imagine how excited I was when I was asked to review three different pairs of wireless ear buds from Jabra. I mean, if any workout was going to test the limits of headphones, the one I’ve embarked on was definitely going to do the trick.
If you’re looking for a good pair of headphones on a budget, wired or wireless you owe it to yourself to take a look at the Jabra Move wireless headphones. They’ve got tremendous build quality, they sound fantastic, and they’re wallet friendly. Whether you’re tired of wires getting in the way while working out or anything else, these headphones ought to be a great option.
Sony’s new swimmable mp3 sport headphones are waterproof. What does that mean? You can take it anywhere you do your exercise without leaving your music behind, including the pool! With features like a tangle-free wire, 4 GB internal memory, quick charging and easy music importing, you can get into your workouts faster without worrying about where you’re going to stick your usual mp3 player.
It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a pair of Beats headphones. So long so that my last pair says “MONSTER” on them still. In my hands are a similar, but different, pair of Beats Solo headphones. Now part of the Apple family and shorn of the cable that used to connect them to devices, Beats by Dr. Dre Solo2 On-Ear Sound Isolating Bluetooth Headphones feel more free. Are they as good as the price tag would imply? Read on to find out.
I love music. No matter where I am or what I’m doing, you can be sure that I have headphones of some sort near me, or on me. Needless to say I was pretty excited when I had the opportunity recently to review two models of Sony Wireless Stereo Headsets. After a week of testing, here’s my take on the two models.
I’ve done a fair bit of traveling already this year, and couldn’t help but notice Best Buy Kiosks in quite a few airports that I ended up in. I never imagined buying electronics out of a vending machine, but actually it is a brilliant idea. Having done hundreds of business trips over the years, I inevitably had occasions where I forgot my headphones or an important cable. I hate arriving at the airport too early so I usually don’t have much time to spare. A kiosk is a perfect solution because it is a quick and secure way to quickly pick up important necessities.
