VERDICT

The Pulseaudio Vitality In-Ear headphones are very easy to recommend. Their lovely bass response makes them shine for use in the gym, and the easy-to-reach controls greatly simplify the operation of these headphones, preventing you from getting distracted when you need it the least.

It takes a good deal of industry experience to craft a pair of sports Bluetooth earbuds that satisfy requirements of avid fitness enthusiasts and music buffs alike. We have seen plenty of companies who tried their best to come up with an interesting product and failed in one way or another. That’s why we can’t wait to see if Pulseaudio manages to rise above the average and convince customers that their earbuds are the best Bluetooth earbuds for the gym and general fitness.

Design and Build Quality

These sweat-proof earbuds are wonderfully durable and really make you feel like you’ve got your money’s worth of audio equipment. Our extensive testing confirms that they remain completely unaffected by sweat or light rain and just keep on playing like it’s no big deal.

The simple, intuitive, and easy-to-reach control panel contains all buttons you could ask for, yet it keeps things simple and allows you to skip the manual and figure everything as you go. From the ergonomic standpoint, the Pulseaudio Vitality deserve nothing but the highest praise. They fit snuggly and the included earwings keep them securely in place throughout your workout.

You can expect up to 8 hours of continuous playback time, with the built-in battery. Compatibility is not an issue, and you shouldn’t experience any problem with all Android and Apple devices.

Sound Quality

You might be surprised how much advanced technology you can find these days in a pair of sub-$50 earbuds. The Vitality feature an advanced electro-acoustic technology that provides high-quality stereo sound and superb bass for the best auditory experience. The earbuds also feature Bluetooth version 4.1 and NFC to reduce digital signal noise to zero, keep the power consumption reasonably low, and simplify the pairing process.

The resulting sound is clear, crisp, and musical. The earbuds have no problem adjusting to different music genres, and their bass quality is otherworldly. We were really not expecting to be blown away by the sheer power and ability to reproduce the lowest sub-bass frequencies with ease, but the Pulseaudio Vitality managed it without a hitch.

Making phone calls is equally enjoyable, and the built-in microphone does a great job of reducing all unwanted background noise to an acceptable level. In fact, the quality is so good that it outperforms even some dedicated Bluetooth headsets.

What’s in the Box?

When you purchase the Pulseaudio Vitality Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds, you also receive an extra pair of earloops, rugger eartips of three different sizes, a standard USB charger, and a small drawstring bag for storage purposes. It probably goes without saying that the soft bag cannot provide sufficient protection against anything more than dust and scratches.
