Trail Running

This afternoon I decided to purchase a set of the new Philips SHQ4000.  These lightweight headphones are designed for sweaty outdoor use – perfect for summer hiking and running in Hong Kong!

Of course I couldn’t wait to try them out and confirm Philip’s claim that they are sweatproof etc… so I hit the mountain trail up behind where we live and sweated my body to bits!  In fact, in addition to hiking up the mountains, I ran the flats and back down the mountain too.  I can honestly say that my body must have lost a kilo or two of sweat (still going as I am writing this) and the headphones did the job.

It was quite unique hiking and running to music – something new for me.  However, it is nice to listen to nature too.  In fact I think I will alternate between the wearing the headphones and “going naked” (at least by the ears!).

More sweaty stories to follow.
