Far End Gear ear buds.

I am lucky enough to have been recently sponsored by Far End Gear, who distributes ear buds for the use in one ear.  They are the ideal way to safely listen to music or podcasts (I’ll put a list below of my faves!) while running. This is because you can still have an ear free to listen for traffic, other people, etc. These nifty ear buds mix both channels of sound from a stereo audio device into a single ear! In this way you get full stereo sound through one ear bud!

These ear buds are particularly important for me because, as you may not know, I am hearing impaired in my left ear. I have hearing loss and tinnitus. I prefer not to put an ear bud in this ear for fear of making my hearing loss worse. Also, it’s kind of pointless because I can’t hear it!! Therefore, I do not get full stereo sound with conventional ear buds. With Far End Gear ear buds I get to enjoy full stereo again. It’s fantastic!

I also love one of their new products, the Brite Buds. These are designed specifically for nighttime use. They have water-resistant fibers woven together with glass bead retro-reflective threading and use the same inter-locking plaiting process used in high-grade parachute cord. So not only are they super-visible at night, they are also super-strong and able to deal with any inclement weather.

I cannot recommend Far End Gear ear buds enough. Not only are they are a fantastic product, but they also have a 1 year warranty wherein they will be replaced pretty much regardless of how they were broken! Not many companies offer such a guarantee! And I reckon, they’re very reasonably priced too! Check them out at their website
