Active & Sports Headphones Information
Digital music has revolutionized the way we listen to music, and has in turn transformed the way we work out. Whether you’re an avid athlete or just trying to stay in shape, nothing keeps you motivated and focused like a mix of your favorite tunes. With an iPod, MP3 player or even a cellphone, you can shut out the outside world and jam out without the clunky AM/FM radios, over-ear headphones and boomboxes of yesteryear.
These days, there are a wide variety of active and sports style headphones as diverse as the athletes that use them. Those who favor traditional on-ear designs will certainly appreciate the contoured, ergonomic design of wrap-around headphones. These feature on-ear drivers, but with a neckband that hooks around the ear and across the back of the head for secure fit during activity. Fans of earbuds will delight in the wide array of styles and fitment options which will offer a comfortable and secure fit for every ear.
Many active and sports headphones offer integrated or inline controls, allowing you to play, pause, skip tracks or adjust volume without fumbling with your iPod during your workout. They also often include inline microphones for hands-free calls (although fellow gym-goers may not appreciate this!) We are excited to see the innovative new products sure to be released in this ever-developing category.
