Disclaimer: I was offered a complimentary set of Beats by Dr. Dre earbuds in exchange for a review and giveaway. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Before a run or a workout, one of the first things I do is grab my headphones so I can jam out to some music during exercise. Hearing the upbeat music keeps me motivated and even helps with my cadence.
I’ve been using yurbuds but am always open to checking out new products. Staples was kind enough to offer me a pair of Beats by Dr Dre headphones of my choice (up to $250 value) to review and share my thoughts on. I chose the urbeats in-ear headphones as they had a feature that my yurbuds do not - the ability to answer phone calls and control my music all from the cable.
I’ve read good things about the urbeats headphones so I couldn’t wait to try them out! I had intended on using them during the Esprit de She 5k back in November, but silly me forgot to check how they fit in my ear…too big :( Luckily, they come with 4 different size ear bud attachments, so you’re bound to find one that fits your ear like a glove!
I always have an issue with the cord on my headphones getting crazy tangled up. These ear buds have tangle free cords AND came with a handy little pouch to store them in when you aren’t using them. Super clever! I also love that they come with a clip to help manage the excess cable during your workouts. I always have an issue with figuring out where to tuck the extra cable so it doesn't get in my way - the clip makes that so much easier.
Once I found the perfect size ear bud for my body, I took them for a spin on the stair climber at the gym. They.Didn’t.Budge! The sound quality was also fantastic. I couldn’t hear anyone else around me on their machines or their conversations. I love having the volume adjustment on the cord as well. It’s so much easier to use than using the volume control on my phone. Answering phone calls is easily done from the cable without having to fumble to pull an ear bud out and pick up your phone to your ear. (I forgot to take a picture of myself at the gym, but I’m using them now to listen to Christmas music while I type up this post!)
