Part Five: What are the top earphones to be used when exercising?

It was complex to work out without having something besides to focus on. Anyone can pick up weights or while away a couple of hours on the Stairmaster whilst watching TV, but to jog silently or pull weights with nothing but a grunting and groaning for company is not very much enjoyment by any means. Portable music is the clear interruption of choice, obviously, but which headsets will you choose to listen to it on? Remember, you do not want headsets that will rattle, skip, fall or slip at the same time as you are trying to get yourself a sweat going.

Evidently, the very best headphones to find, on that instance, are wireless ones. Wires will get tangled or (something that I find for myself infuriating) they might be pulled out of the device you’re playing, which leads one to either end your workout entirely, attempt to fiddle about one-handedly to re-connect your headsets or just keep it up in silence whilst the battery dies on your MP3 player.

Wireless headsets are clearly made using the energetic person in mind. If you should use a Bluetooth type, a great deal of the better, you are able to then also answer your telephone, completely hands free.

The Jaybird Freedom may be a model the same as this, though its quite expensive, you are able to still choose a pair up for under £100 (costs vary on this one, so it really is worth shopping about), it will connect quite happily to any device you are able to consider (though, as always, it pays to double check) and is built with strenuous activity and exercise very much in mind. There’s even a life span anti sweat warranty. A discreet, lightweight, contemporary design and flawless sound replica make this a fairly costly, but very valuable, buy.

If you really do want a wired pair (or, more likely, you simply cannot afford a wireless set), then your best bet could be the Koss KSC 75. These are featured heavily on a range of other headset sites and nearly always make the ‘top 10’ lists for their great mixture of high functioning, reasonable price and lifelong guarantee.

Yes, life span guarantee. You are able to replace them at any time, for any malfunction. The very fact is, that once you try these babies out, you will not need to, and so they won’t let you down. For around £20 you may get these smashing headsets shipped to the door, they clip on to your ears with no trouble and duplicate sound better than most headphones which are twice the cost.

So there you’ve got it, now there is no justification whatsoever, particularly with summer a-coming in, not to get out there and get a good exercise going.
