I got my Soundbuds Curve in the mail yesterday and took them out for a spin today! I have never had a pair of headphones that were actually meant for exercising, so it was awesome to not have to worry about these breaking from sweat. I also never had a reason to load music on my Apple Watch before. Because of those factors, it’s been awhile since I’ve ran with something in my ears.
Alright, first impressions: LOVE THEM! They are so lightweight, snug, and comfortable. Not to mention the great audio quality and bass that pumps out of these little guys. I thought the insert was a little large for my ear until I tried a smaller one, but quickly noticed the fit wasn’t as good or as comfortable, so I went back to the original inserts. They do a tremendous job blocking out external noise.
My run today was my normal route which ends up being exactly a 5K from start to finish. I haven’t been running as often as I’d like, so my pace has really slowed down over the years. I don’t know if it was the amazing weather today or the fact that I had some sweet jams pumping in my ear holes, but I managed to run my route in a 7:43 minute pace! I haven’t done that in years! (I blame the awesome sounding music) So kudos, Anker for some incredible headphones that made me feel like a rockstar today!
The only issue I had was a steady sound of air rushing past my ears while I ran. I’m not sure if that’s normal or if I just didn’t have the headphones in far enough. Eventually I stopped noticing it and it never bothered me that much. I did find a new power song that was a lot of fun to run to! Don’t laugh at me, but it’s Hair Up from the Trolls soundtrack.
These will be used thoroughly. I recently created a review channel on YouTube and will post a link to the review once I have it made. Anyway, thank you so much again, @AnkerOfficial for the great headphones! You guys rock!
