John Biggs explores Anker’s new Spirit X earbuds.
Aimed at runners and other heavy sweaters, the earbuds are completely waterproof under the IPX7 rating, a classification that means it can stand up to 1 meter of submersion. What this means is that you get a surprisingly cheap and rugged set of workout earbuds that you’re not afraid to get a little dirty.
The sacrifice is sound. I bought a pair of the Spirit X earbuds and a less expensive pair of Anker Soundbuds Curve wireless earbuds.
Worst. Sound. Ever.
