|Exceed: Glacier White|
One of the major annoyances of running with music is that little tug in your lobe. A tug that makes you wonder how such a seemingly insignificant amount of mass could cause such annoyance as to leave music behind at home. That is until the unveiling of the Exceed earphones from Auria!
The Wear Test
I decided to put these earphones to a true test, not a little jog on a paved road... but out onto the technical trails of the high country with jostle inducing rocks and roots. Covering the twists and turns and aggressive changes in elevation has worn on and irritated my sensitive lobes while running with earbuds in the past.
That problem is ancient history now, gone the way of the boombox, walkman and the discman... now, you have the perfectly comfortable earphone to use with your iPod, MP3 player or smartphone! It is easy to use, it stays in place and allows the user to readily hear ambient sound! Now you can be a courteous and safe sharer of the trails! No more people sneaking up on you and shoving you into the bushes as they pass!
In Place and Comfortable
As soon as I put the Auria Exceed earphones in, I began jumping up and down in the classic I have water in my ears style of summer time... and nothing budged. So off onto the trail I ventured. Even while running vigorously the earphones stayed in place and were so comfortable that they went unnoticed, it was just me, the trail and some Dylan tunes to keep me company as I moved over the terrain.
Safety and Convenience
The audio quality is excellent, very clear with a great range. Most importantly though- these earphones allow ambient sound to come through from your surroundings! I believe this contributes to the safe use of music while running. The user can hear approaching vehicles, pedestrians, rabid dogs, or just have a conversation with their running partner without fidgeting with their volume or removing the earphones each time they are asked what their favorite color is.
