GADGET GIZMO SPECIAL ...Wireless Sports Earphones

Wireless Sports Earphones

Boat Rockerz 285
Get It For: 4,990
Given the higher price, it's clear that these are part of Boat's premium wireless range. These are in-ear style sports earbuds, each with a magnet inside (they stick to each other when you're not wearing them). It's a lightweight design that you'll forget about if you hang it around your neck. Each earbud is connected with a sleek, tangle-free wire which also has in-line controls and a microphone. We liked the secure fit of the earbuds — useful if you need music for a run. It's also IPX4 water resistant, so no worries about damage from perspiration or light rain. The audio quality is fantastic thanks to the 10 mm drivers, cVc noise cancelling and support for Qualcomm aptX technology. Audio output is loud with deep bass. We were also impressed with the great battery life — a full charge gave us over 7 hours of playback (at 50% volume). We hear that the market price is a lot lower than the MRP, so shop around for a good deal.

Sennheiser CX Sport
Get It For: 9,990
Sennheiser’s sports earphones are not the typical all-black design. The touch of neon on the earhooks and in-line buttons adds a nice bit of style. They're water and sweat resistant too. In terms of design, we liked the balance: the in-line controls are on one side and the battery's on the other side. The soft ear-hooks provide a secure fit without feeling too tight because they sit in the outer ear. We feel more brands should offer these with in-ear style earphones. The audio output is well balanced on the CX Sport — not bass heavy but instead tries to give more audio clarity. There is support for Qualcomm aptX technology as well. Battery life is just over 5 hours, but the impressive factor is the fast charging — a 10 minute charge adds 45 mins of playback time.
