Part 5: What are the top earphones to be used when working out?

It was difficult to work out without having something besides to focus on. Anybody can raise weights or while away a couple of hrs on the Stairmaster whilst viewing TV, but to jog silently or pull weights with nothing but your own grunting and groaning for company is not much enjoyment whatsoever. Portable music will be the noticeable distraction of choice, of course, but which headphones should you decide to listen to it on? Bear in mind, you don’t want headsets that will rattle, skip, fall or slip whilst you are trying to get a sweat going.

Evidently, the very best headsets to get, in this instance, are wireless ones. Wires could get tangled or (something that I find in my opinion infuriating) they might be pulled out of that gadget you are playing, which leads one to either stop your exercises completely, try to fiddle about one-handedly to re-connect your headphones or just continue in silence while the battery dies on your MP3 player.

Wireless headphones are clearly designed using the energetic self in mind. If use a Bluetooth model, so much the better, you are able to then also answer your telephone, totally hands free.

The Jaybird Freedom may be a model just like this, though its quite costly, you can still pick a pair up for below £100 (costs vary on this, so it really is worth shopping about), it’ll connect quite happily to any gadget you are able to think of (though, as always, it pays to twice check) and is built with strenuous activity and exercise very much in mind. There is even a life span anti sweat warranty. A discreet, lightweight, modern design and faultless sound replica make this a fairly costly, but very worthwhile, purchase.

If you really do desire a wired pair (or, more likely, you simply cannot afford a wireless set), then your best bet could be the Koss KSC 75. They are featured heavily on various other headphone websites and nearly constantly make the ‘top 10’ lists for their great mixture of high performance, reasonable price and lifetime warranty.

Yes, life span warranty. It is possible to return them at any time, for just about any failure. The very fact is, that after you try these headsets out, you will not want to, and they will not let you down. For around £20 you can get these smashing headphones delivered to your door, they clip on to your ears without difficulty and reproduce music better than most headphones which are twice the cost.

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