A Dad’s Review of the CozyPhone Active Bands

Disclosure: The Lycra Active Headband was sent to me from CozyPhones for the intent of a review and I was not paid for otherwise for this post.

Normally I write reviews from a dad’s perspective usually relating to my daughter, but this review was selfishly for me. 🙂

With the reality of having a dadbod, any gadget or gizmo to help with improving my physical health is truly welcomed.

So when CozyPhones contacted me to see if I was interested in reviewing a pair of CozyPhones for kids, I told them that my daughter was too young to wear headphones, but I would be interested in an adult pair.

And with that, they sent me a their Active Lycra Headband, which was perfect for me, since for the past half year or so I’ve shifted towards this health movement as a dad.

Being healthy has been on my mind for quite some time now, and what better way to get my butt off the couch than to commit to test and review something that would encourage me to exercise.

After a month of testing, here is my review of the CozyPhone Active Lycra Headband.

To start, like for all my reviews, here is the TL:DR:

If you can overlook the rather tacky logo, get these headbands if you enjoy listening to music/podcasts during your outdoor activities. The design and function of these headphones serves its purpose well, as it allows you to focus on the activity and not fiddle with earbuds/headphones.

If you want to get a better sense of whether or not these headbands are worth getting, please read on, as I’ll explain below.

Me: How old do you think those guys are?

Friend: I don’t know? Probably in their twenties?

Me: Damn, I feel old.

This was my friend and I –sitting in a pool of our collective sweat.

No, we didn’t run a marathon, nor did we complete a gruelling obstacle course.

We were simply taking a break from playing pick up basketball for 10-15 minutes tops.

As I looked onto the court, I could see an image of my past self staring back at me.

This was the 20 something year old version me, looking and ridiculing the two 30 something year old guys thinking, “Damn, I’d hate to be old and out of shape like those two over there.”
