Sony has been in the earphone business as long as time can tell, with its current range including some fantastic over-ear noise-cancelling headphones, and in-ear headphones to suit any budget. The Sony MDR-XB80BS are their newest Bluetooth sports headphones. I decided to try them out and see if they were better than the headphones I currently use, the Beats Powerbeats 3.

When I hear the phrase ‘Bang and Olufsen headphones’, I imagine a well designed, high quality, crisp sounding but a pricey pair of headphones. Today I’m trying out the Beoplay h5 Bluetooth sports headphones. These are the Beoplay h5s from Danish brand Bang and Olufsen, these are advertised as sports headphones, so along with that, you get the expected features of them being splash proof and a bit more rugged to handle the rough and…

A short backstory as to why I did this review. I use compression pants to help me with muscle recoveyr, and up until now, I’ve used Nike’s Pro Combat tights range. (the review is here).

So I bought a pair of Skins RY400…

Nike Compression Pants Review First things first, these Nike compression pants retail at $60 which I felt was a little high for a pair of tights but after reading the benefits promised I felt the price wasn’t too bad. Plus, I read on the site that they have a 2-year warranty which I was impressed with, so if they aren’t as durable as I had hoped I could always get them replaced. The pants I am reviewing are…

Grenadier Grips are these rubber bar grips that you slot onto your dumbells or barbells.

A worthwhile addition to any gym…

If you’re looking for headphones for the gym you’re going to need a pair that will stay put no matter what moves you’re doing. It’s no secret that music motivates us during workouts; however, when headphones are suddenly jerked from our ears while exercising we lose concentration and motivation. Bluetooth seems to be the way forward, with no long cables to think about and vast improvements in sound quality from early models Bluetooth headphones seem…
