Stay in touch during your workout
The Kitsound Race Bluetooth Earphones feature call handling which allows you to make and receive calls using a microphone built directly into the in-line remote. Stay in touch with your family and friends without interrupting your workout routine. Calls are answered by a simple press of a button, without needing to disconnect your earphones from your mobile, any music playing is paused and continues from where you left off as soon as you finish your call.

Long battery life, for long sessions
The Kitsound Race Bluetooth earphones use a single built in lithium polymer battery, which gives you enough power on a full charge for up to five straight hours of audio listening. The battery is completely rechargeable using the included charge cable, and can be charged from any USB outlet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get these! If you're reading this review to decide whether to get these, consider yourself convinced. They should be worth much more than £15 and they're much better than some of the ones I've bought that are in excess of £70. Sound quality is amazing, battery life is fantastic (lasts longer for me than the 5 hours it says) and they actually stay in your ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good earphones Really pleased with these, they are comfortable to wear and the sound is really good. Great price, great to wear for an hour in the gym without them falling out. Don't bother looking elsewhere.Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liberating :) Recently been doing the c25k and struggled with earphones which came with my phone - constantly coming out my ears even when hardly moving - these stayed in my ears on a 4 mile run - no popping out - easy to control volume and to skip songs - easy to set up and no annoying wires - good sound quality- LOVE THEM :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the price I bought these 2 months ago after returning a similar item to a famous online seller as it broke down very soon after receipt. This product has worked faultlessly for the gym and the ear hooks are a great feature to keep them in place while working out. The sound quality and bluetooth linking is excellent, the item links as soon as the smartphone bluetooth is enabled. Well done Maplin for a great product and price, and proof that physical shops are still a valid alternative to online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value These are excellent value for money. I always have issues with headphones staying in my ears and although these aren't perfect I've found them better than any others I've used. I was going to get the Dre Powerbeats 3 but opted for these as a put me on whilst I saved up the mega money they command. In the end I'm sticking with these and have spent the money I've saved on more gym wear. Sound is good and certainly loud enough for a noisy gym with strong but not overwhelming bass. Battery life isn't amazing but is good for the price but like others the low battery warning comes in at about 30% and doesn't shut up till it dies which it seems to do rather quickly. They also have a LED indicator which is fine unless you've left them switched on and placed on your bedroom floor and then they light the room up every 5 seconds!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not designed for running at all! I don’t know who does the product testing or who’s in charge of the marketijjng at Maplin but headphones “ideal for running” are exactly what they are not designed for. I had mine for 2 days where each time I ran 100 yards the headphones would immediately just fall out of my ears. The hanging down of the wire which connects both ear pierces creates the exact sort of drag you don’t want, pulling the ear pieces out each time. Awful product! Do not buy!
