The amazing technology in sports headphones

 Headphones designed for runners and athletes are all about staying in place during your activity. Whether it’s cushioned foam holding earbuds in, or clips or bands that can help keep things steady, if your primary use for headphones is sports, you’ll want to be sure they come with the ability to hold them in place. But there are other cool features you can find built right into headphones, including water or sweat resistance, heart rate monitoring, personal coaching, and more.    

Review: Sony Wireless Headsets

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.

Review: Add SMS Sync by 50 or BioSport Earbuds to your...

Earbuds are always my go-to when I’m listening to music because I don’t like over the ear cans as much.
