New stuff to treat your­self with

When US man­u­fac­turer Jay­bird brought out a set of com­pletely wire­less head­phones, en­dorsed by Western States record holder Ti­mothy Ol­son, we cer­tainly sat up and lis­tened. Com­prised of two sep­a­rate ear plugs, the fea­ture-packed model boasts play, pause, skip and Ask Siri func­tions. You can also take calls at the push of one but­ton.

As the buds are sep­a­rate you can not only run safely near traf­fic, but can also share your favourite playlist with a run­ning part­ner as each bud has around 30m range. They come in a pocket-sized recharge­able case so when you run out just close the lid and they will be ready for your next ses­sion. When the case runs out of charge plug it into a USB port. Charg­ing times are super quick and five min­utes will give one hour of play­back.

Jay­bird has an app so you can ad­just the sound set­ting to your pref­er­ence from your phone. We tried out the mem­ory foam in­ner at­tach­ments, which are worth the ex­tra in­vest­ment for com­fort and unique mould­ing.

ON THE MOVE Down­load the app for a range of guides and playlists to help you hit all your work­out goals. There’s ev­ery­thing from mu­sic to fit­ness ad­vice. FIT FOR ALL Fit isn’t an is­sue as the buds come with a range of dif­fer­ently sized and shaped ad­dons to suit ev­ery ear. That means they sit hap­pily in your ear even on sweaty days. CHARGE IT UP Sim­ply close the lid to recharge your head­phones. For­get hav­ing to find some­thing as old fash­ioned as a plug point. Tech

wins ev­ery time!
