Just like the Bluetooth speaker market before it, we’re definitely seeing more wireless headphone and earbud options for consumers to select from. Muse Mini, for example, has just unveiled its UberBuds designed for the fitness market. The earbuds, which use Bluetooth 4.0 technology, feature 6mm drivers and can stream audio up to 30 feet away from any compatible device. The UberBuds can also play music for up to eight hours without needing to be recharged. An included BudClip also allows users to recharge the earbuds without needing to open or close any pieces. And to find that perfect fit, there are three sizes of earbuds included that are designed to provide good performance during a long workout or run that requires strenuous movement. Music lovers can also take phone calls with a full-duplex echo cancellation microphone. With an invisible nano-coating technology, the UberBuds are also safe from sweat or other outdoor conditions. Available in black and yellow, the headset can be purchased for $129.99 directly on Muse Mini’s site. I’ve recently been using another pair of wireless earbuds designed for fitness use, the JayBird BlueBuds X, and have really been pleased so far. Look for a full review soon.
