Music. It motivates people with active lifestyles to push further and train harder.
It guides your rhythm. It keeps you company.
That’s why I absolutely make sure to have music with me every single day I go out to train… whether lifting weights at the gym or doing a couple of laps outdoors.
This is why having a good music streaming service, reliable mobile data and a dependable set of earphones are absolute musts for me.
While I’m pretty much an avid fan of Spotify and have never had the need to switch to a different service, my set of earphones are a totally different story. I’m constantly on the lookout for better ones that can keep up with my kind of lifestyle – a pair that doesn’t get in the way of my physical activities, yet doesn’t mind getting soaked by the intense sweat of my training.
Right now, I am currently trying out the BlueAnt Pump Mini.
The BlueAnt Pump Mini is a sturdy pair of bluetooth earphones that promises 6 hours of play time on a mere 1 hour charge. And though, I haven’t really worked up the battery of this baby enough to see if it does last that long, using it for 2-3 hours at a time during long hauls and intermittent training proves its power to be very promising.
Using the BlueAnt Pump Mini
When it comes to audio quality and faithful reproduction, mids and lows of the BlueAnt Pump Mini are slightly on the heavy side when listening to music on a flat equalization setting. I find myself cranking up the highs just a tad more or sometimes dropping the low register a few notches. But, you have to understand, a pair of earphones designed to be impervious to sweat means it has less room to breathe. It’s a small price to pay, really, especially if your looking for earphones that are as rugged as your sport. Besides, it’s nothing a little tweak on the equalizer can’t fix.
Switching songs and answering calls mid-training are never a problem since the BlueAnt Pump Mini has built-in one-touch controls for tracks and calls. And yes, you can easily access Siri or Google Now as well.
All things considered, the BlueAnt Pump Mini is a formidable activity partner that’ll provide hours of music and much needed motivation to help get you over that last quarter mile and push you to finish those final reps.
You can find the BlueAnt Pump Mini in all branches of Beyond The Box.
