Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is K Sport Wireless Headphones – True Wireless In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones.
What is it?
K Sport Wireless Headphones are true wireless in-ear Bluetooth earphones that can be used for sport or leisure.
How can it help me?
I’m an avid listener to Podcasts (read my article on Why you should listen to Podcasts for personal development for one reason why I listen so much) and regularly listen while I’m out walking.
I currently use wired headphones, which are fine, but since Apple released their AirPod earphones, I’ve been intrigued to go down the wireless earphone route.
The prices of wireless earphones remain fairly high — the Apple AirPod is £159 at time of writing — so I was intrigued to try the K Sport Wireless Headphones, which are very competitively priced at under £50.
The earphones themselves are small, sweatproof and rainproof and are pitched at the fitness market.
The earphones have no cables in use, come with replaceable ear tips, plus a unique dual USB charger cable.
They use Bluetooth with a range of 10m, and you can use the earphones for media, fitness training programmes or, when paired with your Smartphone and use with the built-in microphone in the earphones, for telephone calls.
Each earphone fitted snugly in my ear and gave a great stereo sound quality. You can use just one earphone or both earphones at any time.
The earphone has a single button which you can use to control music or Podcasts. Press once to pause, twice to skip a track or hold down to turn on/off. I found this a very useful feature.
Charging time for the earphones is approx 1.5 hours, with 3-6 hours use time.
The K Sport earphones also come with an Android or iOS app that offers fitness programmes as an in-ear personal trainer.
How much does it cost?
The earphones are currently available as a Kickstarter project where you can purchase a set of K Sport Headphones for just £22.
I’ll update this article with a retail purchase price post-Kickstarter campaign.
At the time of writing, the Kickstarter campaign had already exceeded its £5000 goal with £13000 worth of funding!
How can I get it?
Pledge £22 or more to the K Sport Wireless Headphones Kickstarter campaign.
Shipping is free worldwide.
