Part 6: What is a delightful sport earphone?
It’s much minor discrepancy on our earlier title, nevertheless it’s worth looking into it as a separate piece.
Whereas, in the aforementioned article, we looked at what were the most effective headsets to buy for sporting activities and training, now we’re shining an investigative beam on what it is for which you’re actually looking for.
So, with this in mind, we have created using the top 5 criteria that you should bear in mind before buying your headsets for the gym, jogging or training of any type. Here goes:
1) Staying Stagnant: It is pretty hard to get a good calisthenics if you consistently have to regulate your headsets. Earphones that vibrate or slide are a constant supply of annoyance when you’re jogging or doing aerobic training of any kind. ‘Headband’ style headphones and large cans are usually an extremely bad decision for exhausting movement, unless they’re exclusively designed for it, so you’re far better off with ear buds or some other form of inner ear phones if you’re preparing on moving about.
2) Faultless Playback: There is nothing more nauseating than music that skips about akin to an 8-track tape player with Parkinson’s and many earphones simply can’t take the tempo. Less expensive headsets won’t have shock absorbers built in and, as such, will fracture quite quickly, causing the music to skip or fade in and out. You’re top bet should be to obtain a set with built-in shock absorbers.
3) Noise Reduction: Noise reduction earphones produce a small amount of white noise round the speaker that drowns out most outside sound. This is great for running past road works, sirens and arguments or ignoring the bleak techno crap they play at the sports center in a vain attempt to ‘motivate’ you.
4) Sturdy Design: These headphones are going to be bouncing around with you and they’re prone to live quite a tough life. In fact, speakers are actually very precise gear and small tiny ones much more so. You must ensure that whatever speakers you buy are well looked after, a strong body and a tough outer casing are good, as may be the thick rubber ‘gummy’ design that’s admired with athletes.
5) Sweat Proofing: When the Human body exerts itself, it sweats. It is a normal function and its in fact quite crucial for retaining body temperature (even if it doesn’t make you smell too interesting afterwards!). However, sweat, like any other fluid, can acutely damage some earphones. Look out for ‘sweat proof’ models or those having a ‘sweat guarantee’ so as to really get the most out of the headsets. Bear in mind also to wash them frequently using a dry cotton bud, just to get the very best functioning out of them.
