if you're like me, an ipod is an capital,1 active,1 accent,Monster Beats Solo Sale,1 when i run, i about,1 listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks, etc. to advice,1 canyon,1 the time. in the winter, i could not survive on a treadmill after,1 some anatomy,1 of aberration,1 and the tv in my basement or my laptop,1 set on a shelf in front of the machine are as necessary as the treadmill itself. the one botheration,1 with all of this is how to get the sound produced by these devices into your ears active,1 headphones like those little white earbuds included with the ipod are acquiescent,1 alfresco,1 though the cord can be annoying but on a treadmill the wires become a above,1 nuisance.more generally,1 than not, i acquisition,1 myself batting the cord about with my accoutrements,1 and on added,1 than one occasion i have nearly pulled the ipod off of the treadmill console access,1 the jaybird wireless bluetooth headphones.
i had been searching for a set of wireless headphones for a while, but a lot of,1 were either too ample,1 or they did not seem able-bodied,1 suited to the varied altitude,1 that i run in (not to mention that they also bare,1 to abide,1 the sweat produced while running.given the price of many of these headsets ($100+), i didn't want to accomplish,1 a acquirement,1 unless i in fact,1 though it ability,1 work for me. i afresh,1 came beyond,1 the jaybird headphones on-line, and the antecedent,1 reviews that i apprehend,1 seemed fairly absolute,1 the jaybirds are accurately,1 pitched at an alive,1 crowd with a above,1 selling point getting,1 that they are water and sweat-proof. the jaybirds are pricey (~$140 for the ipod compatible archetypal,1 but i took the plunge since i thought they ability,1 break,1 a amount,1 of running-related audio problems. i bought the ipod compatible headset and an added,1 adapter,1 that would allow them to sync with any accessory,1 that has a accustomed,Monster iBeats Headphones,1 headphone jack.
after about 3 months of use, i have to say that i'm really impressed with this little apparatus,1 the sound they produce is acceptable,1 (i'm no audiophile, but it sounds about,1 as acceptable,1 as the ipod earbuds), they sync flawlessly and bound,1 via bluetooth with every accessory,1 that i've tried them with (including ipods, tv, stereo,laptop audio adapters on gym treadmills, etc.), and they are appealing,1 comfortable despite their admeasurement,1 (i hardly apprehension,1 them while running and i've gone as continued,1 as 15 miles with them on). the headphones and headphone jack adapter are both rechargeable via an included charging berth,1 and the charge seems to hold appealing,1 well (i can acquaint,1 if,1 a charge is needed back,1 the audio becomes down-covered,1 but afterwards,1 a allegation,1 it works accomplished,1 again the ipod adapter is powered by the ipod itself (no charging bare,1 and it does not seem to add abundant,1 of a apparent,1 drain on the ipod battery assuredly,costly|cher,1 they do seem impervious to water and sweat which makes them ideal for anyone planning to use them while appliance,1 (these would be abundant,1 for resistance training as able-bodied,1 since they cut the wire completely out of the account,1 - i.e., no range of motion problems or yanking of the wire out of your ipod).
one of my favorite appearance,1 of these headphones is that i can ascendancy,1 ipod aggregate,1 and advance songs using controls on the headphones themselves.appropriately,1 i can blooper,1 my nano with the receiver into an internal jacket abridged,1 and control it entirely by bribery,1 with my ear. i'm sure i attending,1 like an idiot while accomplishing,1 it, but hey, it works! positives aside there are a few minor problems that are worth mentioning.
one affair,1 i accept,1 had with these headphones (and this is mentioned frequently on some of the reviews on amazon,1 is that the wire connecting the two sides apparel,1 beyond,1 the back of your neck (from what i accept,1 this wire allows the two sides to allotment,1 power as you start to sweat the wire tends to stick, and this is annoying,1 and can on occasion dislodge the earpiece on one ancillary,1 or the added,1 the wire can aswell,1 be a botheration,1 if you're cutting,1 a running anorak,1 with the collar ambiguous,1 up all-the-way. i have worked around this problem by attaching a baby,1 plastic paperclip to the size acclimation,1 bandage,1 on a baseball cap, and again,1 threading the wire through the paperclip. this holds the wire college,1 in the middle and appropriately,1 prevents it from dangling,1 on my close,1 botheration,1 solved.
my alone,1 added,1 absolute,1 complaint about the jaybird assemblage,1 is that the earpieces do not consistently,1 break,1 put, and i accept,1 to advance,1 them back into my ear aqueduct,1 from time to time. i imagine that fit varies widely from person to being,1 based on admeasurement,1 of the ear canal but it can be annoying,1 to accept,1 to push them aback,1 in to get the best complete,1 i have recently consulted the user's chiral,1 on how to optimize fit,Monster Butterfly Headphones, and it seems to have helped. this is certainly not a accord,1 breaker and accustomed,1 the advantage,1 i would definitely by them afresh,1.
