These Rugged Headphones Should Brighten Up Your Workout [Headphones]


These Rugged Headphones Should Brighten Up Your WorkoutWe died a little on the inside when Klipsch launched a set of purple, Lou Reed-endorsed headphones last year. Now, the company is continuing its colorful theme, but fortunately this time it's ditched celebrity endorsement and gone rugged instead.

Essentially a toughened-up version of the excellent Klipsch S4i earbuds, these little fellas come in red, yellow, orange and blue, and are, happily, water-resistant. They pack the same 8.5mm dual magnet drivers as their non-rugged cousins and come with an Apple-compatible inline remote/mic to boot. What's more, they look really quite nice. Well, if you like primary colors.

They're due to hit the shelves next month for $99. If that's a little too rich for your tastes, though, then why not check out our sports headphones Battlemodo—because you might be shocked by the price of the winners. [Klipsch]
