Hi lovelies! As you all may know, I absolutely love fitness, working out, running etc. and while I do that, I absolutely have to listen to music. Headphones are of course, very important for this, as when you go to the gym or out running you don't want to be that girl blaring out her music, I personally have a mini gym at home, but my treadmill is so loud, even if I play music out loud I can never hear it, so, headphones it is!
I don't really do big headphones, so the little earbud types are my favourites. The only trouble with these is, they're prone to tangling and breaking, or falling out of my ears and they can just be a bit of a pain. Not any more though! A while ago, I was sent some Urbanz earphones and of course, when I was offered the opportunity to give them a go, I though, yeah sure, another pair of headphones is always great, as they break all the time! Not these though! Finally, something different.
See, most headphones have those typical little rubber wire covers that tangle as soon as you put them down, no matter how careful you are (HOW do they do this?!), but these Urbanz Neon-in earbuds are different, they have a sort of shoelace type covering on the wire (possibly a stupid description, but not sure how else to put it!), which not only makes them incredibly durable, but also means they are totally tangle free at all times - hallelujah! They also hang nicely when you have your iPod or phone in your front pocket too, which a lot of my gym gear has - does anyone else find their regular headphones bend and go off in weird directions? VERY annoying! These stay nice and neat though and can be wrapped around your iPod or whatever when you're done and you don't have to worry about messing up the wires.
Obviously, the most important thing is sound quality and for that, these are incredible, the thing I love about these is that the actual earbuds themselves are really nicely shaped and feel comfortable in your ears. They're specially shaped so that they don't fall out and I am pleased to report than I have used these many a time while running and have never had them fall out once, which is perfect. This means they completely block out background noise and for me, that really helps me get into the zone when doing a workout! To be honest, I prefer these over a couple of more expensive pairs of headphones that I have and I think for just £14.99, these are a bargain, as not only is that pretty inexpensive for a good pair of headphones, but you won't need to replace them again and again due to broken, tangled wires.

What do you think? Will you be checking out Urbanz headphones?
