It’s amazing when you’re training how small irritations get blown up to irrational levels. That zip that doesn’t quite shut, a flapping bumbag strap or, if you train with music, headphones that pop out, tug or just act as a conduit for wind noise.
Fortunately these great-value earphones from Radiopaq let you forget you’re wearing them, enjoy your tunes and get on with your training. Top features include three different sizes of silicon buds, interchangeable length leads and, as long as you’re using a later generation Apple audio player, a super slim remote.
Sound quality is excellent, and the flexible, lightweight ear clips and buds combination mean the phones stay in place and are really comfortable. Although not rated as waterproof, they’ve emerged unscathed from several summer downpours. If you pair them with an iPhone, the remote also incorporates a mic that’ll allow you to make and receive calls on the go.
