Good morning all!
I hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend. A few weeks ago we were sent some Wraps wristband headphones to try out, and I’ve been taking them everywhere with me to test them out!
Wraps are new, innovative earphones that can be worn on the wrist when not in use. Not only are they much easier to store and find this way but as they are available in a range of colours and finishes they are also great for the fashion conscious.
There are a few different types available including the Classic, Natural, Core and Limited Edition ranging from £14.99 to £49.99 for the upgraded speakers and metallic finishes.
I was sent the Classic wrap in Crimson colour, there are 6 different colours available in this range. Crimson is a lovely dark red colour and its really flattering on my skin tone so it was a good choice.
I’ve been using them when on walks and at the gym, the sound quality has been really good and the ear phones themselves fit into my ear very comfortably and stay there, even on the treadmill! This is very important as there’s nothing worse than trying to go flat out and losing your favourite song half way through, especially during HIIT!
I really really like that you can wear these earphones – it isn’t something I thought i would actually do but the benefit of not having them tangle up in your bag and having to spend 10 minutes sorting them out every time is amazing. I did worry that this may cause them to degrade faster as I always wrap other cables up to stop them tangling and the iPhone cables for example start splitting very soon when you do this.
However as these are made of a braided cable there hasn’t been anything like this so far, although I can’t speak for 6 months of usage!
It’s super easy to wrap them up around your wrist and then slot the headphone jack into the centre of the earphones themselves to lock it up. This means you can adjust it to each person specifically and wrap them around any body part or bag etc, although wrists would be easiest!
I haven’t worn them for extended periods of time but have had them on for an hour or so and they haven’t unravelled in that time.
The packaging comes with full instructions and also the techy specifications which admittedly don’t mean a lot to me but are there if you understand all about sound!
The Classic wraps are £14.99 and come in 6 different colours.These are the most basic and there are others available which include a variety of finishes including beading, limited edition colours and patterns and also the option of a button to allow start/stop functions plus a microphone.
There is even as most bloggers will appreciate, a metallic range including rose gold – the Core collection are definitely the top of the range with upgraded Titanium speakers. The gold or rose gold would be my personal choices and are priced at £49.99.
I’ve been really impressed with these and although I have tried to find a fault am yet to see a downside to these! I would recommend trying these and seeing how well they fare in comparison to those you have now, these are now a welcome addition to my gym bag and I might get some for my brother for his birthday as he’s a techy geek who would appreciate it!
What are your thoughts on wearable earphones? Have you heard of Wraps? Would these solve all of your problems with tangled cables in your handbag like mine??
