Today’s giveaway is part of the Shape Up For Summer Giveaway Blog Hop hosted by Runaway Bridal Planner and Fit Running Mama. I had so much fun participating in Kristy’s last giveaway hop, I wanted to join in again so that my readers could find more great running/fitness blogs and enter more awesome giveaways!
So… the SnuggBuds Headsets!
I was racing through the Disney Princess Expo after getting my packet, just as it was near closing time, and I saw a vendor that made me stop suddenly. It was a table with high-quality-looking headphones and I thought to myself “I have been searching for good fitness headphones – I must check these out!”
So my daughter and I took a little detour at the SnuggBuds table to take them for a test drive. We rocked out to some music for a while.
I’ve been wearing another brand of headphones that are foam-tipped ear pieces and man, those things get gross when I work out. I love that pair for movies or music, but they are not meant for working out – they get soaked! I don’t think I sweat inside my ears, but it must just drip down… okay enough of that grossness. Suffice to say, I knew that I needed headsets made for exercise and had been reading recommendations and reviews before taking the plunge.
I’ve been testing out the Snuggbuds for a while now, and I’m totally happy with them.
Most often I wear them on the bike trainer. You can find multiple late-night bike trainer selfies of me on my Instagram account, because when I don’t get in a morning workout, you can find me at 10pm in my non-dining-room, riding my bike, wearing my Snuggbuds, watching Netflix.
I’ve also worn them running – mostly on the treadmill, and they stayed put fabulously. I don’t run with headphones outside very often due to safety concerns (I live in suburbia and the drivers aren’t always that attentive, plus I like to have my ears open for cyclists approaching from behind on a path). However, I did pop them in for an outdoor run to test them out when I hit the soccer park trail, and they stayed put very well for running.
- Love the sound quality. I’m a musician and the sound quality is important to me.
- Love the material of the cord – it’s textured and is non-tangle.
- Love the way they fit in the ear. You are supposed to pop them in, give them a twist, and then leave ’em there.
- Love that they stay put during exercise.
- Love the clip so that I can hold the cord in place.
- Love that they have interchangeable tips for the ears – larger or smaller.
I have thought long and hard about a “con” for this review, since I don’t want you to think I’m just saying the positive because I got a free pair, but I honestly can’t think of one. So there’s honesty for you. I won’t make something up not to like just to try and prove something. They’re great and I’ve been recommending them to people verbally for months, and here’s my recommendation in print now!
SnuggBuds was so kind to send TWO PAIRS for me to give away to my readers! No, if you win you do not get two headsets.
There will be TWO winners, each person gets a headset. Yay, you have two chances to win!
They are each model SB-X in black, which is the model I reviewed. It’s lightweight and stated to be the “runner’s favorite” by their customers.

So here’s the “hop” part – the other blogs linked below also have a giveaway going on. The idea is that you “hop” from giveaway to giveaway, but I hope that you check out the blogs and see what they’re all about.
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary headset to review, but all opinions are my own. There will be two winners, each will receive one pair of SnuggBuds headsets as specified in the giveaway. The prizes will be sent by me to a US recipient only, since I am bearing the shipping costs.
