Music is an excellent companion to running, because it can elevate your mood and keep you motivated. Most runners won’t leave their home behind without a music player and headphones.
However, since the advent of wireless earbuds, even people who used to avoid headphones (because they restricted movement), have started using them. At NeoJDX, we know most of our customers do want to wear headphones when they run; but they want something that would be comfortable. Here are some tips on how to buy the best Bluetooth headphones.
- Look at the Technology-If you want to enjoy high-quality stream of music, you need earphones that have good drivers and Bluetooth connectivity. When you look at earphones, consider the technology they use before you make a purchase.
Some of the devices available in the market still use old Bluetooth technology that doesn’t offer the connectivity you need. You need an earbud that has 4.0 version of Bluetooth because it’s specifically designed for music streaming. Our Wingz earbuds have this technology, so they deliver great quality uninterrupted sound.
- The Fit-If you want your Bluetooth headphones to stay put, you need to make sure that they fit in well and can handle movement. They need to be designed specifically for activity and different ear sizes and most headphone manufacturers tend to skip this step, creating devices that only fit in with some ear sizes. Earbuds like Wingz have specifically designed ear cushions and buds that can adjust to different sizes and provide the best fit possible.
- Weather Proof-Running generates considerable sweat and moisture that can have an impact on the performance of the headphones. Sometimes, these headphones are also exposed to rain because not all runners stay at home when the skies open up.
When you purchase wireless earbuds, you need to make sure they are resistant to moisture and weather. Wingz has an IPX rating of 4 so it can withstand considerable amount of moisture and sweat without sustaining much damage.
- Sound Isolation –Clarity and quality of sound just isn’t enough, especially if you run in a noisy urban environment. Most earbuds can’t block out city sounds; so the music isn’t clearly audible. That defeats the purpose of wearing headphones on the first place. That’s why it’s important to purchase a device that offers some level of sound isolation.
Not all headphones offer good sound isolation so you can’t get lost in the world of music during your run. Devices like Wingz have advanced DSP chips that will read your surrounding environment and adjust the sound of music accordingly. This helps deliver clear sound isolation that most wireless earbuds can’t achieve.
At NeoJDX, we always encourage our customers to try new things and explore new concepts and our product range is a representation of that. You can contact us through this form to know more about Wingz, so don’t hesitate to get in touch!
