I received my copy of Cycling Plus today and in amongst all the bikes I couldn’t possibly afford something caught my eye.
The Mad Catz Airdrives Biking Friendly Headphones
Or does it sound dangerous?
According to the company behind the design they are not. The out of ear design means you still have good awareness of the ambient sounds around you. The experience is likened to listening to a car stereo.
Personally, I’m a little fed up of listening to the dull sound of cars revving to overtake me. A little bit of music would certainly add to the enjoyment of my cycling around London. Also, the microphone built into the cord would be good for answering a call without getting my iPhone out my pocket (or bike mount).
I could see this being especially enjoyable on a longer road route or an off-road mountain bike route.
According to Cycling Plus the sound quality is good and the cable is robust enough to cope with being often snagged.
