@Zippearz Review and #Giveaway

Zippearz sent me a pair of their sports ear buds and one of their iFit hoodies to try out and offer any feedback I had for them. They didn’t require that I post anything about their product, but I love them so much that I want to spread the word on a really great product!

Do you ever have a problem with your ear buds slipping out of your ears when you are working out? Zippearz fixes that problem! First, they come with three different sized ear cones so that you can find the right ones to fit your ear. We don’t all have the same size ears, so why would the same size ear bud fit everyone? Second, they come with detachable ear loops that help hold the ear buds onto your ears. So this is what you get:

They are called Zippearz because they have a piece attached to the cords that you can “zip up” to keep them from getting all tangled up. It also includes a nice pouch to store them in:

They stay in my ears SO much better than any other ear buds I’ve ever used. It’s nice to be able to concentrate on my workout and not on pushing my ear buds back into my ears.

One of my favorite features about these ear buds is the sound quality. And for this reason, hubby steals them from me. He LOVES them. Looks like I’m going to have to buy an extra pair!

I also LOVE the iFit hoodie! It’s perfect for this time of year when working out in the cool fall weather.

The hoodie has a small pouch that is just the perfect size for your iPod. There is a small hole out the back side of the hoodie that you can pull your cords through so that that they don’t interfere while you are working out.

It has the Zippearz logo on the front and the back. I’d wear it even when I’m not working out because it’s super soft and comfy!

Here is a great video about Zippearz:


They also have a new set of ear buds out called Nouveau ear buds, which are compatible with the iPhone. You are able to control the bass and treble with these, although I have not tried them out.

Because I love these so much, I would like to offer a free pair of the sports ear buds to one reader. Zippearz is not providing me with this pair to give away, but I am purchasing these myself.

  11. I'd love to win these because I only just starting running (week 3 of couch25k) and am definitely having trouble with my current pair of earbuds. They're fine for the elliptical in the gym, but I love one every 5 steps while running. The Zippearz one look really useful, plus lime green is my favorite color!
    (And thanks for doing this on your own dime!!)

  12. Tweeted about it (kirikiri1) :)

  13. I would love these because I recently misplaced my ear buds and am now working out without music. Which just leaves me and my thoughts (never a good idea)

  14. I would love to win these because they are my favorite style of ear buds (and would love some that stay in!). Plus, it seems I'm always having to give mine to one of my kids who loses or breaks theirs. :)

  15. I would like these ear buds to try something new and they look super comfy and I want something that stays in!

  16. and I follow you on GFC too! These look cool!

  17. I always read your blog on my phone, but went on the computer today because I remembered your great review on these ear buds and I need a new pair - your site is so easy to navigate, and I feel like I'm getting a great pair of ear buds for running! Thanks for the great review - it was memorable a couple months later!
