What to consider when picking Sport Headphones for your Workout
Whether you are running, cycling, lifting, or rowing, the music you listen to makes all the difference. It might be jazz, rock, or even your favourite podcast but it can make all the difference between focusing and achieving your best and that feeling of knowing you didn’t quite do as well as you had hoped. A large part of getting it right is the headphones you wear, so choosing the perfect ones is a very big deal.
With that in mind here are some of the most important things to look for when thinking about the very best headphones for your workout.
Anyone who has ever tried to do any sort of physical activity wearing headphones will be familiar with one very simple fact; wires can often get in the way...
Whatever form your workout takes, focus means a lot and anything that breaks it is far from ideal. Any mobile device worthy of the name now has excellent Bluetooth, pair it with Bluetooth in-ear headphones such as the Panasonic BTS55 wireless clip earphones and those annoying wires become a thing of the past.
Add voice assistant activation in to the mix for complete connectivity, allowing access to volume control, tracks, calls and Smartphone functions such as Siri via the remote-control button, letting you stay completely connected with your phone or device safely stowed away.
So... Bluetooth in-ear headphones are definitely a worthwhile companion for your workout, but what about their battery life? Even the best sounding sport headphones are little use if they only last half way through that cycle ride or power walk. Similarly, if they take a whole morning to charge, then they might not be great for that spontaneous visit to the gym.
You need sport headphones with a battery that lasts, and that charges quickly. The Panasonic BTS35 Bluetooth earphonesThe Panasonic BTS35 Bluetooth earphones, along with the BTS55’s boast an impressive 6 hours of wireless playback and all the new for 2018 models come with a quick charging feature as standard. That means they can be ready when needed..
Even the fittest amongst us sweats considerably during any kind of intense physical activity, particularly on our heads. That can cause problems if we have devices attached to us. Not so much for ourselves but certainly for the sport headphones we wear. Waterproof wireless headphones will keep on doing their thing, not just through the sweat and hard work that comes from a great workout but also through the elements when those workouts take us into the great outdoors at every time of the year.
The Panasonic BTS35 and BTS55 lightweight headphones are both waterproof and have an innovative IPX5 sweat proof structure, making them ideal companions come rain or shine!
Much like wired headphones, heavy or uncomfortable ones can mean the difference between a great session, and a frustrating one. The ultra-light design of the Panasonic BTS10 lightweight ear clip headphones and their quick-fit adjuster mean that the only thing you will feel is the motivation that comes from listening to your favourite workout tracks in style. Weighing just 22 grams and in a range of colours, the BTS10’s are so light it is easy to forget you are wearing them.
Perhaps just as important as the quality of sound from your sport headphones, is the issue of stability. Working out isn’t quite the same as enjoying your music whilst sitting on a bus or losing yourself in your favourite book. You are on the move a lot… You need headphones that stay exactly where they should.
The Panasonic BTS55 and BTS35 Bluetooth headphones have been designed to do exactly that, fitting snug against the ear no matter how much you move. They achieve that through a unique 3D-flex sports clip and Quick-fit adjuster with a hook portion that wraps around the ear and can be freely manipulated to provide an optimal fit. Once they are moulded to your unique shape they stay that way even during your most challenging workouts.
When it comes to working out, you have the will power and the motivation that can make all the difference. Thanks to Panasonic all the ingredients are right there for the perfect sports headphones too. With peerless connectivity, microphone, and hands-free activation, superior battery life, and waterproof design in a range that is light, comfortable, and above all; stable and reliable, they also sound incredible...
