Into nature The habitat of any reducer-Best Buy, maybe, or a coffee shop near SoMa in San Francisco. If you are lucky, you will soon hear the wailing of the reducer. “But it’s worth it!” Someone would cry.Did they point to one $900 tablet Or hold $2,800 camera, You get the price you pay is usually correct.

It is difficult to reconcile our expertise with the budget of ordinary people.Before this week, if you want me to buy a pair of wireless fitness headphones for about $40, I will tell you unless Very Few exceptions, You get what you get.

When I try Back Bay Tempo 30, I have to check and double check the price before making it immediately My colleague park hall Try it too. I was running and walking the dog in the rain wearing 40-dollar earplugs, hanging upside down in the climbing gym, and I couldn’t shake them.They are so good, I can hardly recommend any other Fitness headphones.

Back Bay Audio It is a start-up company based in Boston. Founder Jeremy Abend spent a year developing fitness headphones with high-quality fit and sound quality without a retail price.

From the moment I took them out of the package, I was shocked.The housing is made of aluminum Tiny, Obviously smaller than the case of my AirPods Pro. They are equipped with six different sizes of rubber earplugs. I tried the rose gold version, but they are also available in black.

Unlike other earplugs, earplugs are not only different in size, but also in depth. I have very small and shallow ears. Installation is usually a tedious process, if there are no additional ear fins or ear wings to fix the buds, I still feel nervous. Tempo 30’s out-of-the-box shallow and medium-sized earplugs are perfect for me.That no way happen.

Pairing is easy. I just selected them in the Bluetooth menu of the iPhone 11. They don’t have an application that can modify the EQ, but they do have a very effective active noise reduction function. When I ran home, I had to take them out to listen to my children talking to me.

Tapping the bud on the right will activate the bass boost mode. It’s hard to tell when it is active, because clicking the correct bud is also how you turn up the volume. You can turn down the volume by clicking on the left. I tried to switch to bass enhancement many times, but because it fits a pair of exercise headphones, the bass is heavy even without it.

In fact, the drums in Elle King’s “Drunk and I Don’t Want to Home” are so heavy that I took my ears out of my ears in the gym to check. It seems impossible that no one but me can hear the low end.

These buds have a bunch of market leading specifications. The battery life is 8 hours and 32 hours. After wearing them more or less for four days, the battery is still 80%. They are rated IPX7, which means they can be immersed in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes-I wore them for running in the downpour (Thank you, Oregon) and they feel and sound very good.
