How much time during you workout do you spend readjusting your workout headphones because the cable or wire won’t stay put?
How many times do your workout earbuds get pulled out because your arm gets caught on the headphone wire?
How many times have you tried to come up with some creative way of attaching your headphone cable to your clothing by taping it or using some other funny thing to hold them still?
If you’re like most people, the answer is A LOT.
Being interrupted by cables bouncing around your chest as you jog on the treadmill or get tangled around a dumbbell as you do some curls is beyond annoying. Sometimes it’s just plain frustrating. Luckily Acoustigrip has a very simple and very cheap answer.
How to use the Acoustigrips?
Acoustigrip was designed as a workout headphone management system. It consists of 2 separate clips.
- Clip 1 goes to your headphone cables approximately 6 inches below your chin. This clip “zips” the wires together and then clips them to your chest or shoulder. This allows you to set the perfect wire slack, which equates to no more pulling your earphones out of your ears as you run or workout.
- Clip 2 attaches the single cable further down your chest, so that you prevent the cable from bouncing around your upper and lower body.
Which workout headphones do the Acoustigrips work with?
Unfortunately the Acoustigrips don’t work with every brand of headphones. The good news, however, is they work well for the brands that do support them.
Here’s a list of the compatible brands:
- Apple (iPod, iPhone, etc.)
To be honest, if you wanted to mess around with the clip you could get it to work with nearly any brand. The main problem is the clip is designed for a specific headphone wire size. The typical issue is that any brand not mentioned above may have a large size headphone cable, and it just may be a little bit more difficult to get the Acoustigrip to fit, if at all.
With all that said, if you happen to have an iPhone, iPod, Sony, or Zune, these are perfect.
