When it comes to fitness accessories, quality headphones are of the upmost importance. The time spent at the exercising at the gym or running on your home elliptical is sacred. Not only are you focusing on getting the best workout you can, it’s a welcome escape from the grind of daily life. The last thing you need in the middle of interval training is to hear the chatty people across the gym going on about who-knows-what or the kids fighting over what to watch on TV.
Beats Headphones have been popular since they first came on the market but it’s their newest model that made its way onto Oprah’s Favorite Things 2013. Being on Oprah’s Favorite Things is a feat itself but that’s not what makes them among the best fitness accessories available. With the prevalence of ear buds and in-ear earphones, which many would argue make for a less-intrusive workout experience, it’s uncommon to be hyping over-ear headphones for exercising. But once you try the new Beats Studio Headphones you won’t ever want to use a different pair of headphones, regardless of what you’re doing.
The new Studio model is lighter and stronger than their predecessor with increased comfort thanks to softer ear cups and a more ergonomic fit. Comfort is nice and all but where these headphones really steal the show is with the sound. If you haven’t tried a pair of Beats headphones it’s hard to convey strongly enough how superior their sound is. Beats made its name for having an emphasis on the listening experience and, once you’ve tried a pair, you’ll know why that reputation has stuck. The crisp, body-infusing sound is elevated in the new Studio model with best in class noise-canceling technology. When the adaptive noise canceling mode is turned on, you’ll be able to drown out any noise around you.
Combine all these features; light weight, comfortable, heart-pounding audio, and noise canceling technology and there is no stopping you during a workout. As your favorite workout mix blasts through the headphones you’ll be energized and motivated to go for that extra mile and, without the distraction of chatty and loud people around, you’ll be setting personal records every workout.
You don’t have to take our word for it though. When explaining why the new Beats Studio headphone made Oprah’s Favorite Things 2013 list, Oprah said, “It’s no secret that Beats are my favorite headphones, and the latest version is the best yet: Besides the usual crisp sound and comfy ear cups, this lightest-ever model has new noise-canceling technology and can be charged via USB port.” If they have Oprah’s seal of approval, we’re sold.
