We first featured this this magnetic pair of Mpow earphones in May — since then, Strategist editor Ailbhe Malone has bought them, as has her husband, and her sister-in-law. Already cheap, they’re now 30 percent off (£23, down from £33).
71 percent of the 2,530 reviews are five stars. Both cyclists and gymgoers recommended these, but they were most popular with runners — 164 reviews recommended them for jogging, marathon training, and 5Ks, adding that they stayed secure even on high-intensity runs. The fact they are waterproof also impressed reviewers because they are resistant to both rain and sweat (one reviewer claims he can even shower with them in, although Mpow cautions against this). The sound quality was mentioned in 127 positive reviews, too, with one customer, who bought three more pairs for his family, comparing them to the much pricier Bose headphones.
