When going to the gym, I really couldn’t care less what I look like. Basketball shorts or sweatpants, t-shirt or athletic shirt, hair done or not done, there’s consistency in my outfit minus my shoes which are always some form of running shoe. Heck, 90% of the time I don’t even match my socks up. But where my lack of coordinated attire has no effect on my workout, the accessories that I have to do. Every work out consists of a pair of water-resistant Sony headphones, my sports watch, and my iPhone. Now granted the iPhone is basically my walking MP3 player, the most important item is the headphones. The Sony MDR-XB50BS wireless sports headphones are, for lack of a better word, awesome. Their design allows me to have a full range of motion during my stretches, lifts, and runs. They never fall out which was a problem I always had with any earbuds or other wireless headphones. Especially earbuds though. The cost of earbuds does even come close to negating the fact that anytime you do a full extension stretch or lift, or it gets caught on something while running or lifting, they get yanked out of your ear. I can’t even tell you the number of times my phone got yanked out of my pocket or hand while doing a lift because the cord got caught on something. They also are super comfortable. Headphones like the beats which are also wireless encase your entire ear which makes them hot, and it only gets hotter and sweater as you heat up the workout. Whereas with these, they have the easy feeling of earbuds, but the wireless of the beats. And to add to that, they don’t hurt your ear in any way. If it weren’t for the music playing in your ear you’d forget they were there. The other features such as the hands-free calling are just added bonuses. I can actually answer a phone call now in the gym (even if it’s to say, “I’ll call you back.”) without having to step away or just send them to voicemail. Let’s be honest, there are some phone calls you just don’t want to miss. The water resistance is an important feature too because after finally finding a pair of headphones that you like you don’t want them to give out on you in few months due to your own sweat ruining them. From an avid workout enthusiast, I have to say these headphones are the best I’ve ever used.
