Geek Pick Soundcore Spirit Pro Bluetooth Earbuds

first_img Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls My job involves watching a lot of TV. Yeah, it’s great. For most people, binge-watching TV is what they do to get their minds off work, or the day’s news or their own mortality. For me, it’s research. There’s one problem though. Sitting on the couch for long stretches dissecting the latest 13-hour Netflix series isn’t so great for the midsection. As we’re living in an age with too much content, though, it’s hard to pull away from it to go to the gym. That’s when I remember there’s a high-quality screen in my pocket that’s connected to every streaming service I could ever want. Now I never have to stop consuming #content. Ain’t technology great?Now, you could use the wired earbuds that came with the phone, but any reasonably intense workout will quickly make it clear how much that sucks. One errant slip of your arm, and you end up ripping the buds violently from your ear. Also, the sound quality of most earbuds that come with phones is awful. You need a Bluetooth set. A good Bluetooth set. Enter the Soundcore Spirit Pro.via AnkerA decent pair of workout earbuds can get expensive, and if you’re not looking to drop $100, Anker consistently makes some of the better budget-friendly wireless buds out there. These are a little bit on the pricier side at $49.99, but the jump in cost is worth it. The sound quality is an improvement over the (already impressive) lower-end models, and it’s water-resistant because the goal of working out is to sweat, so I’ve been told. The build quality has a nice, solid feel to it, and the battery is good for 10 hours. If you only use them for working out, you really only have to think about charging it once a week. These feel and sound like they should be more expensive than they are.I’ve been using these at the gym for a the past few weeks, and have no complaints. Music sounds great on these, and I’ve been able to catch up on My Hero Academia while on the rowing machine. Turns out melodramatic boys screaming at each other is a great motivator. Who knew? Now you too can own your new status as the weirdo who watches anime at the gym. For only $49.99 at Amazon, too.There’s plenty of great Bluetooth products out there like the vibrator that order a pizza for you or the speaker that is literally a silver lining. And a lot have been recommendations like the Atari speaker hat. See all our wireless coverage here.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img read more
