Koss FitSeries Review and Winners

Last week I had a ton of fun attending the unveiling of Koss’ new headphones for women, designed by Olympic swimmer, Dara Torres. They worked great in the spin class that day. Since then I’ve been busy putting them through their paces. Would they really stay in during a run??

The FitSeries features two models: FitClips, which wrap around the ear for maximum stay-in-placeness, and FitBuds, the smallest earbuds Koss has ever created.

I took the FitClips out for a bike/run brick. It was an uncharacteristically steamy day here in Chi-town. I thought I might sweat them out of place. I felt like the white cushion part sealed deeply in my ear.
Actually they did not budge. I swabbed a lot of sweat from my brow but I never had to mess with my FitClips. I forgot they were there.

Koss FitBuds are 33% smaller than the average Koss earbud. They come with 3 sets of cushions in various sizes so you’re assured a perfect fit.


Since my ears are petite flowers (you already knew that right?), the smallest cushions fit perfectly. Both the FitClips and FitBuds feature a sweat-proof coating and come in 5 fun colors. They sell for $29.99 and are available HERE. Use code Fit4life for $5.00 off and free shipping.

    definitely jealous of anyone who gets to test out headphones, I swear I went through tons to find any that work for me. I sweat like crazy and yes have tiny little ears too, so I may have to look for these!

    These sound like such great headphones. I don’t use headphones much b/c I do all my running outside, but on the occasion that I am stuck on a treadmill or bike trainer, some that stay in would be nice!

    Those ‘phones sound great if they stay in! The only ones I’ve found that stay in have a clunky plastic bar in the back of my head…which is oh so comfortable when I wear them on an airplane. My 2 new favorite songs on my race playlist are “Up in the Air” – 30 Seconds to Mars and “Right Place, Right Time” – Olly Murs

    What was the sound quality like? My all-time favorite headphones are my sennsenheimers–the only ones I’ve never sweated out– but the wires in both pairs went bad!! Right now I”m using Yurbuds, which don’t always stay in my ears (because I sweat like no human I’ve ever met) and the sound quality is so-so.

    My new fave songs include Daft Punk “Lucky” and Calvin Harris’ “Lets Go”.

    Currently I am not listening to anything when I run, but will here soon. Hey, who is that lovely model posing with the ear buds. Sweet. Will check it out. Thanks for the review. I have had a pair of yurbuds now for 4 years or something like that. Still working fine.

    I think I would really like the fitclips – I hate trying to shove ear buds in and hope they will stay!

  7. says

    These are great. It’s long time that I think to buy headphones for the swimming pool; now that time has arrived. Thanks for the post.
    Too many songs on my playlist but now my favorite is “Tougher than the rest” (B. Springsteen).

  8. says

    It’s great to get a good recommendation on ear buds. There’s nothing worse than having ones that slide out of your ear the entire time. It can really ruin a perfectly good run.

  9. says

    I love the way they wrap around the ear! I have the toughest time with earbuds. Not only are my ears small but the little nubs have been removed from them so there’s really nothing to hold them in.

    BTW: Super cute pic of you!
