Music is essential for getting us cyclists through indoor training. Whether you are using Zwift, or TrainerRoad, or just hammering through tough interval session your coach prescribed for you, loud and crisp music is just as important and most of the time, is what gets us through these quads burning sessions.
Good headsets that can withstand a lot of sweating and provide crisp sound is important. One of my little quirks is always looking for the perfect set of Bluetooth headphones. In this post, I will share with you the one I personally liked and used or still using.
1MORE iBFree Bluetooth – $59.99
These wireless Bluetooth headsets are lightweight, ergonomic, and offer superb sound. The stay in my ear and come with different ear attachments to help you find a good fit. According to the company, 1MORE collaborated with sound engineer Luca Bignardi to perfect the final tuning to deliver a precise representation of your favorite artist’s intended sound.
The sound clarity is nice and found them comfortable to wear during indoor cycling sessions and outdoor running. Plus they feel very sturdy and the textured aluminum finish is a nice touch. Manufacturer battery claims to last up to 8 hours of music time. I didn’t do an official battery test but found it to be close to that.
TREBLAB XR500 Bluetooth Headphones – $39.97
If you like loud music, then these headphones won’t disappoint. I like to turn the music way up when things get tough on the trainer and these headphones offer the loudest sound of any set I’ve tried.
The Treblab headsets are designed with a secure fit ear-hooks and they will stay put and won’t fall out. They are also IPX7 waterproof and sweat proof. Also, I took these inside the sauna for few long sessions (25-30min) and they functioned fine.
The battery will last for about 4-5 hours depending on your use and volume.
These headphones are one that lasted me a long time. These are Bluetooth 4.0 compatible and have a battery life of 30 hours. They feel like they could run forever. Actually, I don’t recall them ever running out of juice during a training session even after storing them in my gym back for weeks.
They are bulkier than other headsets but very light, and you don’t have to worry about them falling out. Sound quality is superb and loud.
