Headsets For Running: Born To Run


Its a difficult engineering job, just how do you create headphones for running that don’t slip, slide, skip or fall out but that are not stapled to your earlobes? Engineers have cracked it. Well, two.


That scene in ‘Anchorman’ where Ron Burgundy says that he and Veronica are trying this new fad called ‘Jogging’ is entirely plausible. Ron’s tenuous grasp of the English language aside (especially as a big shot who’s such pride in his collection of leather-bound books), Jogging was indeed a largely unknown phenomenon until the 60’s and 70’s (in reality the word ‘jog’ actually denotes a swift, sudden movement, like jogging one’s memory or jogging 1 who is writing/painting) until it was Started (and named) by a bloke from New Zealand named Arthur Lydiard.


What would a world without jogging be like?. Its like, if you were in an episode of the 90’s TV series ‘Sliders’ and also you found a world where Arthur Lydiard had been hit by a auto or whatever. Think about that. Jogging is hugely influential to post-60’s culture inside the West. Charity Marathons will be a new prospect altogether (In fact ‘Marathon’ originally meant ‘long-lasting’ and had little, if anything, in order to do with running) and sports/athletic clothing could be reserved for sporting people (vs individuals who consider shoplifting athletic clothing a sport)}.


Anyway, I digress; there’s nothing at all useful in anything I just told you, nothing that you brought this short article up to examine, anyway. Showing. Running is staying put. Really shouldn’t wear spandex, but most of the time, you get to see attractive members of the alternative sex (or identical sex – I’m not judging) stretching and flexing in a skimpy outfit. You can’t fail, really.


You’ll want (in some cases: need) music to accompany your run. Whatever your soundtrack, you’ll still be getting a good workout!. It comes down to a choice between headphones connected underneath your face or headphones that cover your whole head. We won’t go into individual models today, as there are many to choose from. The earpiece models wrap around your ear itself, with a little bud that’s specially designed to lodge inside your ear hole. These headphones work well indeed if you have a good shape of ears. Personally, I happen to work as part Vulcan apparently, as my ‘inhuman’ ears (it doesn’t matter what your family members say, these phones are definitely NOT one size fits all!) simply can’t keep those flamin’ things on my head! If you’re like me, a headset version, The smaller the better. As I say, it’s a personal choice, just as your running soundtrack.
