As far as wireless headphones go, the brand new K True Wireless Headphones are a pretty good option to choose. Small, lightweight and good looking, the earphones are perfect for when you’re on the go. They are comfortable and not restrictive like wired earphones can be.
As an avid runner, I was thrilled when I realised these headphones were tailored towards fitness with an app full of training plans that you can follow. From running and cycling to boxing and general fitness workouts, the KuaiFit app has a wealth of programmes that connect to the earphones and, via a coach, talks you through the workout as you’re doing it. It also records your progress so you can keep track of what you have done so far. It is available on iOS and Android mobile phones.
The earphones are easy to use with a button on both pods that you press and hold to turn on and connects to your phone via Bluetooth. They connect quickly and tell you when they are ready to use. Because they are two separate units, it is possible to have just one earphone turned on and in use at a time if you do not want both at the same time. They use the latest Bluetooth 4.1 and have a 10 metre range making it great when on the go.
Charging takes just 1.5 hours and they last for up to three hours in use. The sound quality is impressive and the earphones are also good at blocking out noise around you with advanced CVC6 noise cancellation. There are three different sized earbuds to choose from for extra comfort and they are also sweat proof making them great for fitness use. I personally use them for running and find them extremely comfortable to wear and I don’t feel them in my ears.
Another great feature is that you can answer phone calls with them. The HD microphone makes it easy to answer phone calls and talk to people on the go. When it connects to your phone, notifications sound through the earphones so you never miss a notification. They also notify you of when the battery is low so you can charge them up before the next use.
The only downside to these earphones are that they do not come with a bag of some sort. Because they are so small, they are easy to lose so it would have been nice to have a small bag to keep them together.
Otherwise, they are a great bit of kit, especially if you love your fitness. You can buy them now from Kickstarter for just $29.
