What are they?
With all the tech possibilities at your disposal in the sports headphone market, these in-ears suddenly look rather simple. The US brand focuses on build quality and sound performance, with a flexible, water-resistant design, complete with ear hooks to keep them in place and an in-line remote to keep you in control.
There’s a choice of three colours – yellow, blue, black – and four different-sized earbuds. Choose the right bud size to ensure they fit snugly and stay in place, and also to get the best sound quality. And that’s all the ‘setup’ that’s required. The ear hooks are comfortable and unobtrusive and, crucially, the buds stay in place as you run.
The light, 1.2m, flat cable doesn’t bounce around too much and there’s a play/pause button that works with Android and Apple and volume adjustment for iOS devices. Sound quality is excellent, with crisp treble notes, clean and clear vocals and even a decent amount of bass for the money.
