Running’s a great way to keep fit and lose weight (and if you don’t like running, just try eating properly). I like to listen to music, podcasts and language tapes when I run, which is why I loved the invention of the armband – a great way to keep your phone close to hand.

The Bose SIE2 Sport Headphones with Reebok Fitness Armband from qvcuk.com,combines a functional armband with high quality headphones – the theory being that you can run without compromise. But how does that work in praxis?
