Headphones For Jogging: Born To Sprint


It obviously is tough to make headsets for running that work efficiently Fortunately, the boffins of this world have many solutions. Well, two.


That scene in ‘Anchorman’ where Ron Burgundy says that he and Veronica are attempting this new fad called ‘Jogging’ is entirely plausible. Ron’s tenuous grasp of the English language aside (especially as a big shot who has such pride in his collection of leather-bound books), Jogging was indeed a largely unknown phenomenon until the 60’s and 70’s (in fact the word ‘jog’ actually denotes a swift, sudden movement, for instance jogging one’s memory or jogging someone who’s writing/painting) until it is Invented (and named) by a bloke from New Zealand named Arthur Lydiard.


What would a world without jogging be like?. Chucked headfirst off a cliff, all the sports companies will be bankrupt. Consider that. Jogging, in a really possible way, altered our cultural landscape. Charity Marathons could be a new prospect altogether (Actually ‘Marathon’ originally meant ‘long-lasting’ and had little, if anything, to do with running) and sports/athletic clothing will be reserved for sporting people (as opposed to those who consider shoplifting athletic clothing a sport)}.


However. I feel like a bloody Maths teacher (for the reason that I’m wasting my time teaching. Ironically, like a popular phenomenon, running goes nowhere. Really shouldn’t wear spandex, but more often than not, you get to see attractive members of the alternative sex (or the same sex – I’m not judging) stretching and flexing in any skimpy outfit. You can’t fail, really.


You’ll want (in some cases: need) music to accompany your run. Whatever your soundtrack, you’ll still be getting a good workout!. The major choice is between ear pieces and headsets. We won’t go into individual models right now, as you will discover many to choose from. The earpieces fit in your ear hole and sometimes attach to your device via calble. These headsets work very well indeed when you’ve got the fitting shape of ears. Personally, I happen to work as part Vulcan apparently, as my ‘inhuman’ ears (no matter what your pals say, these phones are definitely NOT one size fits all!) simply can’t keep those flamin’ things on my head! If you are like me, a headset version, The smaller the better. As I say, it’s an individual choice, just as your running soundtrack.
