Top 3 ways Bluetooth headphones can be used by fitness enthusiasts in 2017

While it seems that everyone has a set of bluetooth headphones slung around their necks or pushed into their ears, most people don’t give much consideration to how they can actually use their headphones in a way that goes beyond listening to music.

For fitness enthusiasts, a good quality, reliable set of bluetooth headphones can make all the difference in their workouts. Let’s  consider the water goer, the runner and the snow sport lovers. Here are the top three ways that bluetooth headphones can be used by fitness enthusiasts to bring their workouts to the next level.

For the Water Enthusiast

If you find yourself being called to the ocean on a regular basis, you probably want to consider getting yourself a good quality pair of waterproof earbuds. Just like regular bluetooth earbud style headphones, the sound quality and functionality of these types of earbuds remains a popular favorite; however, consider that your headphones might get wet. What would be cooler than waterboarding or paddleboarding and listening to your favorite jam? Ranging from $30USD to $200USD, be mindful that consumers usually get what they pay for with electronics. The pricier models are more “waterproof” than the lower to mid-range priced headphones.

For the Runner

Running is a sport that has stood the test of time. More and more people are getting into running and running is more accessible to people nowadays with the introduction of learn-to-run apps and online coaching models. Running can be an amazing way to spend your time, until you have to stop and untangle your headphone cord from around your wrist for the hundredth time. Don’t even bother with wired headphones if you are into running; get yourself a pair of the best wireless headphones. They are small, have good quality sound and you won’t find yourself all tied up in wires 2 miles down the road. Your phone or mp3 player probably came with wired headphones, but trade up as soon as possible so that you can concentrate on what matters to you most, the running!

For the Snow Sport Lovers

A weekend in the mountains spent skiing or snowboarding is a dream come true for a lot of people. It’s important to ensure that you have a high quality bluetooth headset when you are snowboarding or skiing so that you don’t have to worry about wires tripping you up on the slopes.

Consider using an earbud type of bluetooth headphones that has an external clip on it that you can grab with your gloves. Listening to your music is only part of the experience with bluetooth headphones, they have to work with your lifestyle too.

Whatever your sport of choice may be, make sure you take the time to consider how your equipment will serve you in the water, on the road, and going down the slopes. Fitness enthusiasts know how much of a time crunch poor equipment can be, so invest in a good pair of bluetooth headphones that can help get you through your next workout, run or adventure.
