Whether you're rocking down a rocky incline on two wheels or sedately scaling a technically troublesome cliff on a weekend climb, the tempo of the tunes in your head can be a big deal. For rock climbing, maybe you prefer Rachmaninoff to the Rocky Balboa theme song but one thing's for sure – whatever your chosen listening pleasure it's definitely got to be wireless!
Sports headphones have become all the rage recently, with more and more manufacturers racing to bring to market products designed for those with an active lifestyle who want the ability to bring their music with them wherever they go and for use in whatever activity they choose to engage. Wireless Bluetooth technology has made it possible to bring music to a wide range of sporting activities, from simple workouts at the gym to jumping out of airplanes and diving toward the earth at terminal velocity. Here are a few sporting activities where wireless headphones are a must.
Running – Whether on an occasional weekend jog or more serious long-distance marathon running, having your favorite tunes along makes it less boring, more interesting and, according to a 2008 study, music can increase your endurance during exercise by as much as 15 percent. If you've ever tried running with headphones tethered by wires you know how inconvenient that can be. With good Bluetooth headphones, you can also have hands-free access to your cell phone too.
Skiing and Snowboarding – Barreling down the mountainside at breathtaking speed can be punctuated perfectly by some sonorous sounds coming from your smartphone or MP3. No worries about icy wires and ill-fitting, easy to fall out ear buds when you're using a system designed especially for high-movement activity.
Hiking – A hike in the woods or up a mountain can be a great experience communing with nature and even more enjoyable when accompanied with some appropriate music provided through your wireless headset. Don't worry about snagging your system on low passing branches. Going wireless means going clean and hassle free.
Climbing – The solitude that surrounds serious climbing is perfect for the inspirational sounds of your favorite symphony or other special songs. No way this could be accomplished with traditional wired headphones. Going wireless opens up whole new vistas in outdoor enjoyment and climbing in concert with your preferred background music adds another layer of pleasure to your play.
Mountain Biking – The concept of Red Fox Wireless was born of necessity after the founder suffered a serious mountain biking accident as a result of his headphones snagging on a passing tr
ee branch and causing a catastrophic crash. Any mountain biker who has experienced a similar fate knows that being tied to your sound system through easy to tangle wires is not only inconvenient but dangerous as well. Now that problem has become a thing of the past.
