I love, love, love this time of year for so many reasons, but one of them is due to the fact I can get out and run. In addition to my new favorite apps, Zombies, Run! and Charity Miles, I’ve been motivated to get moving thanks to my new FitSeries headphones from Koss. Recently, with help from five-time Olympian and gold medalist Dara Torres, they’ve come out with their FitClips and FitBuds, designed by women catering specifically to the active woman. Ideal for use while running, walking, cycling, etc., both are sweat resistant, ultra lightweight and extremely durable. Not to mention the fact they come with amazing sound quality as well.
My personal favorite were the FitClips. I’d only used clips a few times prior to these, mainly because they always pinched my ears. Somehow after working out, my ears ended up being more sore than the rest of my body. However, for the sake of helping woman-kind, I decided to try these anyway. Because of their soft, flexible nature, I’m happy to report that there was no pinching, or pain and these stayed comfortably in place during each of my 5-mile runs.
Even though I’m now partial toward the clips, the FitBuds were good as well. At 33% smaller than the average Koss earbud, they fit snuggly in place. Despite the smaller frame, I did notice these moved around a little bit on my runs. Don’t get me wrong, they weren’t falling out and it wasn’t distracting, just an observation.
Both come with three cushion sizes to help assure your perfect fit. I have a slew of earbuds stashed away in various places but I will now be turning to these to keep me entertained during my summer runs. If you’re spending any time at the gym or running through the streets this summer, check out these FitSeries options from Koss. And also, I know I shouldn’t care about this, but, it’s me, so I do…the colors are right on trend for the season, specifically their neon lime, coral and mint. Perfect!
The Koss FitBuds and FitClips were designed with help from Dara Torres specifically to help meet women’s needs.
Both retail for $29.99 and are available in 5 perfectly on-trend colors for the season.
