According to a trend study by 'Running USA,' more than half of the people choose to listen to something while running, whether it's music, podcasts, audiobooks, or radio. Furthermore, over 80% of people choose to listen to music while running because listening to something during a run can have several positive effects:
1.Music can reduce the difficulty of starting: Listening to music while running can reduce the perceived effort, helping you get into the groove faster. Compared to running without music, you'll find that taking those first steps isn't as challenging.
2.Music can boost your mood while running: The dopamine released during exercise can provide mental stimulation and enjoyment. However, for those not accustomed to exercise, the initial difficulty can overshadow this happiness. Music can help you maintain a positive mindset during exercise, helping you endure the initial discomfort and enjoy the pleasure of working out.
3.Music can improve your running rhythm: A study published in 'PLos One' showed that when the rhythm of music matches the runner's stride, their rhythm is better compared to running without music.
4.Music can alleviate the pain during intense training: For high-demand runners or professional athletes undergoing high-intensity training, music can be a great aid, helping them perform better.
5.Music can help you recover energy faster: A study from Brunel University in the UK suggests that listening to soothing music for about half an hour after exercise can help the body recover from fatigue.
As you can see, there are many advantages, so why is it still not recommended to listen to music while running? Ultimately, it's because listening to music while running can be unsafe.
Safety hazards of listening to music while running:
1.Decreased self-awareness: Listening to music while running can reduce your awareness of your body, making it hard to hear your footsteps and weakening your perception of your breathing and other bodily sensations.
2.Reduced environmental awareness: Listening to music can, to some extent, affect your ability to hear important environmental sounds, such as shouts from pedestrians or car horns, potentially leading to safety incidents.
3.Ear damage: Outdoor environments are generally noisier than indoor settings, so to hear music clearly, you might need to increase the volume to potentially harmful levels, which can damage your ears.
Life is precious, and irreversible harm is something you can't undo, so it's not recommended. But what if there were audio products that could mitigate these safety risks?
When it comes to audio products, most of them involve headphones. Headphones are designed for immersive listening experiences, focusing on improving audio quality. While this is great for enjoying music, it might not be ideal for athletes. Recognizing this, SANGSTRE has developed the SANGSTRE Professional Smart Audio Glasses after consulting with experienced athletes and long-time runners.
SANGSTRE Professional Smart Audio Glasses are optimized for sports in the following six ways:
The primary focus of sports smart audio glasses remains on audio performance. They accompany you during workouts and provide a delightful audio experience. They deliver sound through built-in speakers in the glasses' arms, optimizing low-frequency frequencies for outdoor activities. This ensures clearer bass at the same volume, effectively protecting your ears.
Environmental Sound Awareness:
SANGSTRE Smart Audio Glasses prioritize safety. They understand the importance of environmental sounds during exercise. They use sound field overlay technology to cancel out surrounding sound fields, reducing sound leakage. With their open-ear design, you can enjoy music while staying aware of your surroundings, ensuring your safety.
SANGSTRE Sports Smart Audio Glasses use Bluetooth 5.1 technology for quick and easy connections to your preferred devices. Most people use smartphones as their music players during workouts, but some may prefer compact MP3 players. SANGSTRE glasses seamlessly connect to both, eliminating the need for additional accessories. Technological advancements have indeed made everything more convenient.
Water and Sweat Resistance:
SANGSTRE Sports Smart Audio Glasses consider the uncertainties of outdoor activities, such as sudden weather changes and profuse sweating. These glasses are designed with an IPX4 rating for water and dust resistance, ensuring they can withstand moisture without affecting performance. In fact, unless submerged in water, light rain and sweat should not impact their lifespan. (I doubt anyone would run in heavy rain, right?)
Despite being smart audio glasses, SANGSTRE maintains a commitment to comfort. The glasses weigh around 45g, ensuring a comfortable fit for prolonged wear. The design of the frame and arms is ergonomic, suitable for extended use. The glasses offer adjustable frames, interchangeable lenses, and customization options to cater to individual preferences.
Voice Control and Personal Assistant:
If you prefer using voice commands to control music playback or handle calls, SANGSTRE Smart Audio Glasses have you covered. Whether it's issuing voice commands to control music or answering calls, they work seamlessly with voice assistants.
Choosing the right audio device can enhance the benefits of listening to music while running, outweighing the potential drawbacks and, to some extent, mitigating them. So, why not give SANGSTRE Smart Audio Glasses a try?
