Such is the headphone Parrot Zik Sport, it gives you super fine audio quality, adaptive noise cancellation abled with in-built intra-auricular biometric sensors which measures the heart rate. The Wireless headphones measure other parameters also such as your vertical oscillation which calculates your up and down bounces as you run; another feature the headphones offer that can be very helpful for runners is its ground contact tracking ability. The headphones just weigh 75 grams can be very useful for long runs as they are so light, wireless and sweat proof. And, with all the features on, the battery life is up to 5 hours, too good!
