In-Ear Monitors have become more accessible to amateur and aspiring athletes. Capable of relaying data back to the athlete with audio cues, these systems double as music systems and smartphone headsets in many cases. Active Junky’s experience with in-ear monitors over the past six months remains largely positive, recognizing the challenges of a) fitting and b) in-motion security. Vibration and head movement can compromise the connection unless the earpiece is custom fit for the athlete. Recharging (speed and battery life) is improving to strike a balance between light weight and long-distance functionality.
