If you have ever seen me out for a run, you can spot me a mile off because I wear old skool over-the-head headphones on my runs. Ear buds normally hurt my ears when I wear them and tend to fall out all the time. I realize I look silly and the headphones tend to push my hairband off my head. That is why I was super excited to give Jabra's Rhythm ear buds (for music players and mobile phones) a try.
These came in black and included 3 sets of rubber ear bud sizers. Turns out I am a small, which may explain why I have never found ear buds comfortable in the past. These fit in my ears well and stayed in while I was walking around. During my run, the buds stayed in for the most part but occasionally would need adjustment. Usually they just became a little loose and needed to be pushed back in.
The sound was great on my run as I used them with my I-pod! I didn't hear any wind rushing by (not that I run that fast) as the product has a noise isolating feature. I was listening to HynoGoGo moving meditation on my run and could easily hear the words being said. I also listened to music on the bus and Tube too. My husband said he couldn't hear any music when sitting next to me on the bus and the music was quite loud. I think this is a fantastic feature as I hate hearing other people's music.
The chord is shorter on the left ear side (which is sometimes annoying) and has a clip to keep the single chord attached to your clothing. There is a button on the chord to adjust volume and track. I found it to be really sensitive and I had trouble figuring out which way to press it to adjust volume and not which song was playing. I hope to try them with my android phone once I figure out how to put music on it (or get can the tech support to do so).
I really like these ear buds and will continue to use them on my runs and commute. The music quality is outstanding and you don't have to worry about bothering the people sitting next to you. If you have small ear canals, the buds are very comfortable. So if you haven't had luck yet with ear buds, give these a try.
