May 8, 2012: I have found the perfect bluetooth headphones to wear while exercising: Plantronics Backbeat Go Bluetooth Headphones. I highly recommend you skip this post and
Spotify Rdio. The loads of music at my disposal has vastly increased my listening. So much so that I opted for a new pair of headphones. Well, considering my other pair broke, I was due for a new pair anyway.
This time I thought that would try out a pair of Bluetooth headphones. After all, the lack of a cord would prove quite useful while exercising. Thus, I purchased a pair of Motorola Bluetooth Headphones.
Although I was correct, the lack of a cord did help while exercising, the negatives of the headphones out weighed the positives. As a matter of fact, the only positive is the lack of a cord.
Here are the negatives:
- Bulky Design
- Uncomfortable Fit
- No place for a bar on your neck.
- Tilting you head backwards would cause the headphone to shift (and almost fall off).
- Shorter than expected battery life.
- Sounds was unimpressive.
All in all, it’s quite obvious that the negatives out weight the positives.
Until I find a new (less bulky and better sounding) set of headphones, I will stick with cords. I found them: Plantronics Backbeat Go Bluetooth Headphones.
