BOSE SOUNDSPORT PULSE, RM1,090
These wireless earbuds feature a built-in heartrate sensor to track your performance (with the Bose Connect app), while delivering excellent audio quality. There’s an inline mic that lets you answer calls and play and pause music without having to reach for your phone. They are built to be weather- and sweatresistant so you can train on the go wherever you are, whatever the conditions.
SONY WS623 WALKMAN, RM599
This device is built to withstand extreme outdoor conditions. It is dust-, salt- and waterproof up to two metres, 30 minutes at a time, which means you can take it with you to the beach and still listen to your music at high-quality sound levels, as it is also designed for underwater listening. It can also withstand temperatures from -5°C to 45°C!
You get up to 60 minutes of audio time with a quick three-minute power-up, while a complete charge will give you 12 hours of battery life. You can pair the earphones with your smartphone to stream music, or if you prefer, store up to 16GB of audio in the headset itself!
