We like sportz and we don’t care who knows
From shooting hoops, to the Super Bowl
We like sportz and we don’t care who knows
Football Football Football. Tennis. Hockey. Golf.
(from We Like Sportz, the Lonely Island)
We’ve discovered some really nice in-ear P281 headphones by Edifier that would not only make your favorite Lonely Island songs sound great, but that won’t fall out of your ear while you’re shooting those hoops, running, or doing any kind of “sportz.”
In other words, these great P281 headphones by Edifier don’t just sound great, they’re tailor-made for active people.
We included this song by the Lonely Island to make the point that sports and music tend to go together. If you are someone who likes to be active and move around, you need earphones that are made for well, “sports!”
Customize-able and Affordable!
The P281 Sweatproof Sports Earphones are amazingly affordable at just $27.30, but even at this price, they’re customize-able to fit your ear.
Really, it’s’ true! The part that curves around your ear is very pliable, so you can mold them to fit, and they’ll stay put and be comfortable.
These headphones are also waterproof and dust-proof. The in-ear canal design means you’ll also isolate a lot of
The in-ear canal design means you’ll also isolate a lot of sounds that can distract you when you are concentrating on your form, or just when you need some peace and quiet.
When you need to connect, the omnidirectional microphone will let you hear and talk, clearly.
For Your Edification:
The dictionary definition of edification or to edify is: “to build or uplift, or to improve.”
These Edifier headphones certainly can improve your game, your workout, or your overall listening pleasure.
So let’s go through the details:
The best sounding earphones in the world are not going to be the best for an active person if the headphones fall out of your ears or are uncomfortable.
But the Edifier P281 headphones are designed as behind-the-ear in-canal earphones.
You get a personalized fit, and the in-canal creates a seal around your ear for good sound isolation.
Edifier thoughtfully provides small, medium and large silicon ear tips. Find the right fit and they actually seal the sound and help boost the bass.
If you look at the photo above, you’ll see that these headphones are angled.
If there is a downside, it’s that like all sports headphones of this type, you have to get them to fit in your ears properly.
You must find the right size ear tips, and then make sure the ear buds are positioned properly in your ears. If you don’t get it right, you don’t get all the benefits of rich sound, and they can fall out of your ears.
Experimentation is minimal, and once you’ve got it down, it’s smooth sailing.
We Don’t Suggest You Try This But…
These earphones are encased in a protected shell that keeps out the elements.
Edifier claims that if you submerge these earbuds into 3-feet (1 meter) of water they will still be undamaged after 30 minutes under water.
We didn’t test this, but if your earbuds fall into a pool of water there’s a good chance that they will survive. And, Edifier claims that the earbuds can be dropped from as high as 9-feet (3 meters) and continue playing your favorite tunes.
Hopefully, you won’t be testing this fact either, since you wouldn’t survive the fall, even if your Edifier P281 earbuds, will. But the point is that the headphones are rugged.
A Long Cord That Won’t Tie You Down
Long cords can be useful, but awkward and heavy. The P281 earphones have a long and durable 4.2-foot (1.3-meter) cable that is relatively lightweight.
When you’re moving around, you won’t feel over-burdened or tied down with a heavy cord.
In our tests, the plastic cord still tangled but a lot less than the thin plastic or fabric ones which are usually standard. That’s also a benefit when you’re active, when you’re traveling, or when you want to get them out of the (included) storage pouch and quickly onto your ears.
We think a graphic is worth a thousand words, so for those who want to know the specifications, here they are:
The Bottom Line:
If you want good, clear sound at an affordable price in an extremely affordable, good quality in-ear headphone, once properly positioned in your ear canals. the Edifier p281 really delivers.
The red and black Edifier p281 sports in-ear earphones we received was particularly attractive but these sports in-ear earphones are also available in white and black and silver.each are about $70.
They’re your perfect gym or travel companion!
We give these four stars — we really liked these a great deal…almost as much as we like “sportz!”
