Part 5: What are one of the best headsets for use when working out?
It’s not easy to work out without developing something else to focus on. Anybody can lift weights or while away a couple of hrs on the Stairmaster whilst watching Television, but to jog without a sound or pull weights with nothing but your grunting and groaning for company isn’t much pleasure by any means. Mp3 music may be the noticeable interruption of choice, obviously, but which earphones should you choose to play it on? Bear in mind, you do not want headphones that will rattle, skip, fall or slip whilst you are trying to get yourself a sweat going.
Evidently, the best headphones to find, on that instance, are wireless ones. Cables might get twisted or (something that I find for myself frustrating) they can be pulled out of that device you are listening to, which leads you to either stop your workout entirely, attempt to fiddle about one-handedly to re-connect your headphones or simply carry on in silence whilst the battery dies in your MP3 player.
Wireless headphones are clearly designed using the active self in mind. If you should use a Bluetooth model, a great deal of the better, it is possible to then also answer your telephone, completely hands free.
The Jaybird Freedom can be a model exactly like this, though its quite expensive, you can still choose a pair up for below £100 (prices vary on this, so it really is worth looking about), it’ll connect quite contentedly to any device you are able to think of (though, as always, it pays to double check) and is designed with vigorous activity and exercise much in mind. There’s even a lifetime anti sweat assurance. A discreet, lightweight, modern design and faultless sound reproduction make this a somewhat costly, but very worthwhile, buy.
If you really do want a wired pair (or, more likely, you just can’t afford a wireless set), then your best bet may be the Koss KSC 75. These are featured heavily on various other headphone sites and nearly consistantly make the ‘top 10’ lists for their great mixture of high functioning, affordable price and lifetime guarantee.
Yes, lifetime guarantee. You can return them at any time, for just about any malfunction. The very fact is, that after you try these headsets out, you will not need to, plus they will not let you down. For around £20 you may get these smashing headsets delivered to your door, they clip on to the ears without difficulty and reproduce music better than most headphones which are twice the price.
So there you might have it, now there is no excuse whatsoever, particularly with summer a-coming in, not to get out there and get a good workout going.
