Review: Bone conduction headphones for running for runners
Spring is a time to take in the budding flowers, enjoy the mild temperature and beautiful views. And runners everywhere are rejoicing. I would like to run, hike in the spring to enjoy the natural spring while listening to music, which makes me feel so good and comfortable.
Recently, I have introduced a set of bone conduction headphones from one of our runners in a hash club, an international group of a non-competitive running social club. I bought them from the Leaglee company’s website. I would like to write about the bone conduction headphones reviews here.
Today, I used them while running with other hash runners. The headphones don’t fit my ears, just in front of my ears, with the sound transmitting through your cheekbones. This leaves your ears uncovered, which can be a good thing if you are also trying to listen to other things. Sometimes we have to run on roads, it is a safety issue to be able to hear the traffic and hear the other runners to shout at you if you are lost.
Today’s hash trail was not steep but a little bit flat so that everybody had a chance to enjoy the view. I could enjoy the nice view while listening to my favorite music with my bone conduction headphones.
The picture below is a nice flat trail with some bamboo and maple trees.
After running, we gathered a down-down place to enjoy beers, the place was full of laughter.
I had lots of preparations but the headphones are sweat proof so i could freely wear it without any problems even though I sweated a lot.
This is not the only feature of the headphones that appealed to me. I used the normal earbuds before, it had difficulty keeping earbuds in my ear walking, running, exercising, or just breathing. I even couldn’t eat when I put my old earbuds in my ears. I am happy to have these headphones. It makes me cool and very useful for me.
I can also use it for listening to music while driving and be able to answer and cell phone while walking, driving or playing golf.
If you are satisfied with the headphones you have and can hear the environment around you when you are running, then there is no reason to get a pair of these. But if you haven’t been able to listen to music and hear danger signals around you or if you have had trouble getting headphones to stay in or on while running, then these may be the solution for you!
