Some people like to listen to their favourite songs, podcasts or radio shows while out for a run or walk, either outside or indoors. In this case, using an MP3 player is one of the best options thanks to its lightness and versatility.
The benefits of listening to music while doing exercise or sport
MP3 players still have their place in a society in which we are highly dependent on smartphones, as they help us disconnect while taking part in recreational activities such as exercising.
A range of studies have confirmed that listening to music has a positive influence on our mind, helping to motivate us and relieve our anguish. A song or beat can be associated with an optimal mood that helps us improve the quality of our physical activity by increasing endurance and reducing perceived exertion.
The MP3 player you need, depending on the exercise you do
MP3 players for runners
If you’re a runner and prefer to take an MP3 player with you when out jogging, you’ll probably need a sports accessory to carry your device comfortably. Apart from the convenience of being able to clip the MP3 player to the band, the MP3 Clip BT Sport Greenstone with Bluetooth technology has 16 GB of internal memory and expandability via a microSD card.
MP3 players for trekking
When out hiking in the countryside, you need as much freedom of movement as possible, as sometimes your hands have to hold a stick or support yourself as you climb over a small rock you come across along the way. Moreover, trekkers often carry a backpack with supplies such as water or nuts, which is why they need a wireless MP3 player with a handy clip, such as the MP3 Clip Bluetooth Mint. It comes with 8 GB of internal memory, which can be expanded with a microSD card.
Walking while listening to music
The MP3 Clip Coral is the best choice for those whose favourite exercise is walking around the city or specifically designed areas, but who do not need so much freedom of movement. It has 8 GB of internal memory which can be expanded thanks to a microSD card, a built-in FM radio, and a handy clip to attach it to clothing while exercising.
Remember that our online store has a variety of MP3 players and MP4 players, plus headphones designed specifically for sports that will make exercise while listening to music a hugely satisfying experience.
