AS600-7

Summer running and having a blast? – The final results

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve tested some of the best sports headphones the tech world has to offer. Last week we pitted 6 of them against each other in a head2head format that left us with 3 victors, but we wanted to look at these again to round-up the top 3 in order. So, without further ado, in reverse order…

234800807BRONZE: TRAINER BY GIBSON TI100 WIRELESS SPORT

I really like these headphones. They’re a really great set not only for training, but for general purpose use too. Good battery life, very comfy and just a really nicely put together product. That’s why they got a 7.3 overall originallyHowever, at £150 the more I thought about it the less I could justify the cost compared to the next best. They’re the most expensive headphones in the testing group and they’ve done really well, but the fact is that they’re just too expensive…

SILVER: JAM TRANSIT MICRO SPORTS BUDS BLUETOOTH

hx-ep510-bl_hooks_2_1Scoring a solid 6.8 overall in their initial review, the Jam Transit’s are a solid headphone and at £40 they offer a really reasonable pricetag to cut the cord on the headphones you train with. Ultimately, they were let down by their comfort in the overall score, but on reflection I can’t help but think that going against the Trainer’s they’re a third of the price, so a little less comfort is not that big a deal! So despite the review score I’ve put these in second place.

GOLD: AFTERSHOKZ TREKZ TITANIUM

AS600-159If you read my previous review you won’t be surprised that the Aftershokz are our overall winners. They’re just amazing. If keeping the world around you out is your goal, these aren’t for you. But if, like me, you run or ride in fear of the next car flying up behind you on country roads then these are the thing for you. They genuinely work and I can say that I wouldn’t want to train with anything else ‘not’ in my ears any more.
