I have sweaty ears.
That sounds almost as awful as saying I have hairy ears (which I don’t).
But really, sweaty ears are a problem when it comes to headphones. Add the fact that I have small ears, and you’ll understand why I hate most headphones.
The ones that come with most electronics are awful — even the ones that came with my iPod are unusable. The day I bought my iPod, I used them for about ten minutes on a cross-trainer at the gym.
In those short ten minutes, the earphones popped out of my ears at least 3 times. And I wasn’t even sweating much.
I’ve never used them since.
Instead, I tend to buy my headphones separately. I need headphones with adjustable ear buds, and I needs ear buds that can stand up to my sweating.
I reviewed Koss’s FitClips and FitBuds once before, and I was in love with them at the time. When I got the chance to look at these products again, I jumped at the chance — especially because I knew that, this time around, I could share a pair of these with one of you.
The Fit Series from Koss was specifically designed for women, with 3 options for ear bud sizes so you can find your best fit. Plus they’re sweat-resistant, which explains why they don’t slide out of my ears when I’m at my grossest.
My favorite part about these, however, is the sound quality. I wear these for a lot of things, but I often wear them when I use my stair stepper at home. My home machine is a loud one — it’s an old Stairmaster, circa 1994, and it’s so noisy that the cats run away when I get on it.
All I hear when I wear these headphones is my playlist — and I love that.
These headphones are actually available at a few major retailers, like Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Walgreen’s, KMart and Sears, for a promotional price over the holidays.
But I’m also going to give you a chance to win a pair, for yourself or someone else, right here.
