You’ll find ultimate distraction from the pain locker with these new release headphones.
LIBRATONE Track Air + | £179
Many of us assume that headphones don’t fit us: whether it’s the shape of our ears or the shape of our heads (that might just be me…), headphones never stay put. So we are basically in awe of these, and have no hesitation in recommending them. They stay put – completely, utterly and comfortably. On longer 10-plus mile runs, they’ve not budged a millimetre. The comfort is pretty much astounding, not a bit of irritation, the sound quality is awesome, and the charge time is impressive. It really is worth pushing the boat out budget-wise for clear sounds and comfort. Do it.
JAYBIRD Vist | £159.99
These come with three earbud sizes, so you can get the perfect fit, and with no wire, they’re suitable for all sports. Sound quality is excellent for both music and the spoken word. By tapping the earpiece you can adjust the volume, skip a track or turn them off. They work perfectly well as a single ear bud too. They charge quickly within their own portable charging box and last six hours. Light years ahead of many other headphones on the market, these are a good investment piece.
Aftershokz Aeropex | £149.95
Impressively lighter and smaller than their previous model, the Aeropex sit comfortably at the front of, then over, your ear, for a good, hardly noticeable fit. These are easy to use, effortless to turn the volume up or down, although the button is small, and they work with sunglasses. They feel secure while running, and are great if you want to be able to hear background noise so that you feel safer. For running on roads or in an area that isn’t very busy, these are ideal.
House of Marley Uprise 4.0 | £49.99
The sound from these bluetooth headphones is rich and flawless. They’re easy to set up and use and the function buttons are simple to learn. They stay in place even during a vigorous workout and sit comfortably in your ears thanks to the adjustable ear pieces. The style is fun and attractive, and the water resistance is very welcome. The charge seems to go on forever so there’s no panic of running out mid-podcast. They have been responsibly made too, from a mixture of recycled and recyclable materials, so they get a big green tick from us.
