For travelers and workout junkies, it’s hard to find a good pair of headphones. The standard earbuds that come with your iPhone are made of unforgiving plastic, making it hard to get a good fit and have them stay in place during a workout. Sweat can damage components while cords can get in the way of exercise. Enter the BlueBuds X from Jaybird, a set of Bluetooth headphones made for working out.


Made of two earpieces connected by a rubberized band that goes behind the neck, a fastener and adjustable length ensure a secure fit. JayBird is offering a lifetime guarantee against any sweat damage, so you can be confident the BlueBuds will take a beating during your workout routine. A discreet, inline remote and microphone allow you to control your music and take calls with excellent clarity. There is a pop-off cover that reveals the micro-USB connection, which you can charge with the packaged cable.


For music, the BlueBuds X deliver a solid low end without attenuating the treble, a common problem with bass-heavy headphones. Bass-heavy songs at high volumes don’t distort, while the crisp highs cut through cleanly without sounding harsh. The sound quality of the BlueBuds X competes with traditional headphones, and is miles ahead of the curve when compared to other exercise headphones.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?
