Review: iXCC Bluetooth 4.0 Stereo Sweatproof Sport Earbuds

Finding just the right pair of earbuds for active sports is a fool’s task, it seems sometimes. Good connectivity, usability, features, and the ability to stay comfortably attached to your head with constant jarring all seem like things that should be easy enough to accomplish, but there’s never a perfect option.

My personal favorite earbuds are still the Bragi Dash. But, these are extraordinarily expensive due to the type of technology and the futuristic feature set. But, unfortunately, the battery life of the Bragi Dash isn’t stellar. I can get about an hour and half from them – after that I have to switch to a backup pair.

So, I’m always on the lookout for a good pair of backup earbuds. I’ve been testing out the ones from iXCC recently and have determined they are a great option. I’ve read the reviews on Amazon from those that suggest these will break after extended use – but I’ve not experienced that. Yet. And, if I do, I’ll circle back here and provide a quick update.

The style of these earbuds lends to a solid fit that ensures they won’t jump out of your ear and the sound is good as long as you take the time to fit the included ear caps. It comes with small, medium, and large. Additionally, usability is also good. The buttons are laid out logically and all easily accessible on the left ear.

The price is probably the biggest factor, considering I’m using these as backup earbuds.

Amazon sells these earbuds for around $13: Bluetooth Headphones, iXCC Bluetooth 4.0 Wireless Stereo Headset In-ear Noise Cancelling Sweatproof Sport Earbuds with Mic for Smartphones
