Working out without any kind of entertainment can be somewhat boring at times so whenever i get on the treadmill or whenever i use the multi-gym equipment i like to either listen to music or watch movies on my tablet. Of course it goes without saying really but when you're not living alone or it's very late at night and you don't want to annoy the people living next door using earphones (preferably wireless ones) is pretty much the only valid solution (headsets work too but just too heavy for my taste while working out). Unfortunately most wireless earphones don't sit well on the head/ears and are far from sweat-proof something which i noticed just over a month ago when i had an rather expensive earset fail on me while i was using the treadmill. 66 Audio produces headphones and earphones primarily designed for athletes and today we're taking a look at their BTS Sport model.

To ensure that the BTS Sport Bluetooth headset doesn't fall from your head regardless of the type of workout you do 66 Audio followed the somewhat typical around the head design by using a very thin headband to connect the two medium-sized earcups. Stability is also always a concern for such headsets/earsets so to improve on that area the headband passes just over/behind your ear (in a way it locks in position) so there's really very little to no chance of them falling off your head. Under the hood 66 Audio has placed two 30mm drivers (20Hz – 20KHz frequency response with 32Ohm impedance), Bluetooth v4.0 connectivity with EDR (supports multi-point, A2DP v1.2, hands free profile v1.5 and AVRCP v1.0), CSR aptX codec support, built-in microphone with patented Clear Voice Capture Technology and a 400mAh rechargeable lithium-polymer battery pack which gives the device up to 25 hours of music playback and over 400 hours of standby mode.
