I feel like I am constantly cycling through running headphones. I’ve tried a lot – some bad, some decent, and some that are better but too expensive. Sometimes I feel like Goldilocks – always trying to find that pair that are just perfect (i.e. fit comfortably, sound good, and are affordable). So when Koss offered to send me a pair of the new FitClip headphones, I was excited to see if maybe they finally fit the bill.
The Koss FitClips are designed specifically for women, so they are smaller for a better fit and come in bright colors. Olympian Dara Torres helped design them and is the “face” of these headphones. And I think she did a great job. The FitClips fit snuggly in the ear (they come with three different size ear cushions), they stay put, and the clip that goes around the ear is very comfortable. Sometimes headphones that go around the ear are stiff and uncomfortable for the entire run, but these are flexible and lightweight so you hardly feel them at all. And the sound is decent – nothing to rave about, but nothing to complain about either.
The headphones are available online or at WalMart and come in coral, blue, purple, lime, and mint (aqua). They cost $30 and are covered by a lifetime warranty – can’t beat that!
