Mobile accessories suitable for exercising -

To enjoy your phone as a portable mp3 player while working out, you’ll surely get the basic accessories like belt holders, armbands, and headwear. Belt holders and arm bands are a given as it would be quite awkward to hold your mobile device while working out. However, when it comes to headwear, some points should be considered.

The best headphone actually depends on the user. Choosing between a traditional or wired headphone against a wireless Bluetooth headset can be a possible issue. Stock hands free headsets of mobile phones are usually wired (connected through the headphone jack). Though this is perfectly fine, it may impair some mobility, it does not define true freedom of movement which can be a problem when working out. Wires and cables can lead to twists and knots. When working out, it would be advisable to go for a wireless Bluetooth headset.

Obviously, don't go for the expensive ones like headphone beats. There are a number of relatively cheap durable sports Bluetooth headphones that are ergonomically designed to suit any person who is always on the go. It makes the user appear more professional, and is seemingly comfortable to use.
