Headphones to Soundtrack your Workout Routine

Headphones to Soundtrack your Workout Routine

According to the research, the average person dedicates 1/4 of their day to
listening to the music. That means you spend 60 days listening to music per
year! Anyone who has ever listened to music at the gym during their sweat session
like us knows that finding the right pair of workout headphones can be tougher than shopping for jeans. Why? Because they must be comfortable, must be easy to set up, must not procreate sweat, must be pretty (or at least, not ugly), must not weight a ton, and must (okay, hopefully) not cost a fortune. AND usually if you like one thing in the new headphones, you have to give up on second thing, for instance, “the sound is great, but they don’t look good/they are heavy/no t comfortable/not sweat-resistant etc.

 

We have decided to use 4 criteria for headphones that we care about the
most. If you are fitness fashion freak and tech geek like us, you might find
this list applying to you as well. Here are things we care the most.
For UFG , headphones must be:
  • workout friendly and wireless
  • comfortable and has an unshakeable fit
  • bass enhanced to help drive you through a hard session, basically help you stay motivated
  • fashionable, modern look that is effortless and fun to style (preferably instaready too 🙂
Specter Wireless Audio were designed by audiophiles, tech geeks, & fitness freaks and we couldn’t resist to test them for you.
