Talking about Sonic, it has been proven that listening to music can immensely enhance your workout. Research indicates that listening to music distracts athletes from their ‘bodily awareness’ (pain). And a recent study found that not just listening, but controlling and creating music in time to one’s pace had an even more profound effect on perceived effort during a workout. Basically, working out with music tends to make you less aware of how much you exert, helping you push limits and train harder. And to keep up with such hard workout sessions, you need durable earphones that can keep up with you. Here’s where Sonic has it all right; with a wireless form factor and innovative design, Sonic never gets in your way of exercising while helping you reap all the
benefits of listening to music while working out.
