SMS Audio BioSport earbuds review: Heart-rate-monitoring headphones are more convenient than you think

 

I was skeptical when I first heard about SMS Audio's BioSport biometric heart-rate-monitoring earbuds. They measure your heart rate through your ears? Assuming they do, is the traditional method of strapping a heart-rate monitor to your chest so...

Integrated (and accurate) heart-rate monitor ; Extremely comfortable ; Draws power through your device’s headphone jack

Heart-rate monitor currently works with just one app ; Unspectacular audio performance ; One-button remote control lacks volume control

SMS Audio BioSport Earbuds Review

 

The $149 SMS Audio BioSport earbuds are solid, accurate heart rate monitors that double as fairly good headphones. These earbuds are for the runner who doesn't leave for a run without a music player, and who also wants to track heart rate without a...

Accurate heart-rate monitor ; No charging required ; Good overall audio quality

Only works with RunKeeper app for now ; Must stop HR monitoring to use microphone

The $149 SMS Audio BioSport earbuds feature an accurate heart-rate monitor and plenty of volume to blast your favorite tunes during your workout.

SMS Audio BioSport Headphones Brings a Heart Rate Monitor to Your Ears: Review

 

Just when you thought wearable technology was only relegated to your wrist and head, SMS Audio partners with Intel on BioSport the first of its kind pair of in-ear headphones that brings smart technology to your ears. These ‘Smart' in-ear pair of...

Smart technology meets in-ear headphones. Runtastic app integration adds another level of uniqueness when it comes to wearable technology. Accurate heart rate monitoring

No dedicated volume control. Sound quality is just average. Very long cable

SMS Audio BioSport earbuds

 

A solid set of buds that includes a built-in heart rate monitor

Integrated heart rate monitor ; No extra power or set-up required ; Good sound quality ; Comfortable fit

Not ideal for serious running since the heart-rate monitor needs a smartphone to work

SMS Audio BioSport

 

The SMS Audio BioSport are smart in-ear sports headphones that track your heart rate without a chest strap or wrist-based monitor.

Clever self-charging headphone jack ; Tangle-free cord ; Accurate heart-rate tracking (when it works)

Heart-rate tracking very temperamental ; Sound quality should be better for price ; Only works with RunKeeper

The SMS Audio BioSport earphones' troublesome fit means their killer feature is a big let-down. These are sporty in-ears to leave out of your gym bag.

We think they are best suited to beginners and intermediate users who are just getting into the fitness scene. If you're a serious runner, you might want a more traditional monitoring method that doesn't require you to carry your smartphone while you run.

SMS Audio Biosport headphones review

 

Fitness-tracking tech is growing more popular by the day, traditionally in the form of a wrist-worn smartband or smartwatch, but more recently also available as headphones that have the ability to monitor your heart rate. We've already reviewed the...

If you're a fitness buff and want to add heart-rate monitoring into the mix when it comes to workout data then biometric headphones are definitely worth considering, because there's no need for an additional piece of tech to be worn around your wrist....
