Logitech might be better known for computer accessories, but with the Ultimate Ears 300vi they have created a pair of in-ear headphones that have given them good reviews and best buy ratings for sports headphones by amongst other The Gadget Show.
Described by the manufacturer as a durable noise-isolating headphone, the Ultimate Ears 300vi features a flexible over-the-ear cable to allow for comfortable and secure fit while running or at the gym. As most in-ear headphones these days these also comes with a range of different sized buds to allow you to find the right fit for you, something that is very important for a pair of sports headphones as you will be moving around a lot and they need to fit comfortably and securely in your ear-canals. The Ultimate Ears 300vi plays nicely with the iPhone as well, featuring on-cable controller/mic with talk functionality as well as skipping/pausing sound of course.
The Gadget Show gave the Ultimate Ears 300vi a positive rating and a best buy listing for the sports headphones luxury category, referring to them as lightweight with a sharp and meaty bass filled sound. The Ultimate Ears 300vi also made the Stuff.tv top 5 headphones for running list, and have generally been well received by consumers at Amazon UK.
The Ultimate Ears 300vi sports in-ear headphones are available from amongst other the following UK retailers.
