If you are a serious runner or a walker then you know it’s important to keep track of things like heart rate, calories burned, steps taken, and distance traveled while you’re exercising.Â And of course you want to have your tunes on as well, right?

My Review of the iHome NB639 Fitness Evolved Headphones
I tried these out while walking when we first got them and I love them!Â The sound quality is excellent as is expected from any iHome device, and it worked perfectly as described.Â The coolest feature to me is the fact that it reads your stats to you aloud through the headphones so there are no interruptions during your workout!
Once I gave them a test run, I passed them on to Bryan(my husband in case you don’t know) who is all about the exercise.Â I knew he would be great to review these because he works out almost every day and is always trying out new devices like this.
He is using the NB639 Headphones not only for cardio sessions, but also during weightlifting to keep track of his heart rate. It is very handy to be able to just place your thumb on the sensor and it reads your heart rate aloud.Â He was using a watch that monitors heart rate, but he hated that it gets in the way of workout gloves which are very important.Â NB639 Headphones are just placed in the ear to replace his regular headphones.Â Only requiring one device for all these purposes is really great!
I would highly recommend the NB639 Headphones to anyone who likes to excercise!
