Disclosure: I was provided with a set of Philips Sound ActionFit Headphones in order to complete this post. All opinions are my own.
I’m a runner. Anyone who knows me knows this fact.
And a big part of why a run? Outside of the fact that it allows me to maintain my sanity as well as my torrid love affair with starchy carbohydrates?
Is the simplicity of it.
All I need is my shoes and something I can sweat in…
And I’m on my way. Simple as that.
No equipment…No paraphernalia…no muss, no fuss.
I’ve always taken a good deal of pride in the simplicity of it all and turned up my nose juuuust a teensy bit at those who go to gyms and classes with a bag full of gear in tow…or even those runners who head out with headphones and heart rate monitors around their arms and fannypacks full of snacks and watches that could detonate small bombs.
Seriously? Keep it simple! Be one with nature and just appreciate what’s around you!
So it ended up being quite serendipitous that Phillips Sound contacted me, asking me to give their ActionFit headphones a trial run, so to speak.
Me? One with Nature Girl? Keep it Simple Sue?
But I did.
And I’m so very glad. Because, friends?
They are simple.
They have this adjustable, over-the-ear design that ensures a perfect fit, no matter your size.
The sound is incredible. I had always been somewhat leery of running with music for fear that it would completely block out the sound around me and create a running hazard.
Not so…not so at all. I enjoyed my Robin Thicke…whilst in the thick of a busy intersection…and had no safety concerns whatsoever.
And, friends? These headphones are waterproof. So even if you sweat like a banshee like
I do I’ve heard some unfortunate souls do, no worries. Rinse those babies off? And you’re good to go.
And on a personal note, I’ve found that having music along makes me a better runner…more conistsent strides, better breathing technique, and motivation to go an extra mile or two.
So I suppose that you could say that Philips has converted me. Want to join the movement?
Or simply upgrade from your existing sound conditions?
