Koowien Wireless Sport Headphones - Review

I have been checking out these headphones or earbuds depending on what you prefer to call them. They are the Koowien Wireless Sport Headphones (KOO-K6) in Black. I used to think I would never have a wireless set because of how expensive they are. But for a lower price point, these are pretty fantastic. Here are my thoughts on them. This post includes an affiliate link at no cost to consumers. 

So you get the earbuds, ear tips, charging cable and small manual. 

Wireless Earbuds (1)

Size & Fit: They are a little big on my ears, BUT my ears tend to be on the small side and all earbuds are big on me. Having said that, these still stay in just fine and are still comfortable. I've worn them walking, running, biking and at the gym and they stay in just fine. They are pretty comfortable as well.

Wireless Earbuds (2)

Cord:  The short cord is a bit stiff. I would prefer one that is more flexible.

Wireless Earbuds (3)

Pairing: This part was a breeze. Your phone automatically sync's with it like any new device. On the right earbud, you hold the button for 3-4 seconds, it powers on and connects to your phone. 

Range:  My best guess is it's about 30 feet or so. Just like they state in the product description. I can leave my phone in the garage and go in my house 2 rooms away before the sync breaks. In my gym, I can leave my phone on a chair and still reach all of my machine's and things I want to do. So I think in my house going from room to room is one thing, but the gym is one big open room and I think I get longer range in there. 

Wireless Earbuds (4)

Power/Call: This is the power button. It is also the button to answer a call with (using a shorter quicker push of the button). I rarely get calls at the early or late hour I use these so it's not a concern for me and I've never had a chance to use it. And if I would get a call, I"m not answering it anyway, my workout time is my time and I don't like to be bothered with calls. There is a mic too for if you do use this option.

Wireless Earbuds (5)

Volume/Skip: This is the volume +/- as well as previous and next song option. The volume is a quick little compress of the button. The previous and next song is holding it down for maybe 2 seconds and it skips. You get the feel for it really quick. Very easy.

I am very happy with the sound quality but I'm not one of those people who are real judgemental over the sound, but I think it sounds great.

Wireless Earbuds (6)

Charge: This is where you plug it in. Has the little rubber flap and so far it has not broken off. Easy and quick to charge. Charge does last for a long time. I run with them 4-5 times before charging, but I only run about 5 miles at a time and I charge them to be sure it doesn't die on me, not because it was drained.

Wireless Earbuds (7)

So all on the right earbud is the volume, skip, power and call buttons.

Wireless Earbuds (8)

The ear hook is the part that is a little big. But like I said, didn't make them not fit good, it's just a little big. Only recommendation I'd have is this part be that adjustable kind. That twists and turns and shortens to form to your ear better. But I do still like them a lot. Anything to get rid of that cord being in the way of the traditional style.

Wireless Earbuds (9)

This is how they look from the front. They aren't dainty looking and they aren't huge looking, but I definitely wouldn't want them to be any bigger.

Wireless Earbuds (10)

The best part is, I have no cord to mess with anymore and these haven't fallen out yet. The fit good, stay in place, sound great and you can't beat the inexpensive price. I've been very happy with them.

Wireless Earbuds (11)

Do you use wireless earbuds?

How are do you run each day?

What did you have for supper last night? (just curious, I like to know these things)

Casual Camping

Again this year we were pretty busy and had a hard time fitting in camping and fishing.

fish (1)

We did manage to get away for a week. So I kept the photo's to a minimum and just enjoyed it.

fish (2)

Catching minnows with a butterfly net.

fish (3)

She's getting pretty good about changing her own hooks, baiting them and holding the fish. She don't take the fish off yet, but she's getting there.

fish (4)

We catch and release.

fish (5)

fish (6)

This time camping, besides fishing, we also brought frisbee's, a ball toss sort of like bags, did the trails, played horseshoes....we were busy from sun up to sun down with the lightening bugs. No matter how much we do, it's hard to wear this girl out.

fish (7)

The boys on the other hand.....are beyond whooped this trip. It will take lots of naps to catch up.

fish (8)

Love those super calm water days.

fish (9)

I hope you all are enjoying your camping days.

Are you even a camper? Love fishing?

How do you wear your dogs out?

What have you been doing for fun this summer?

Races - Sunflowers - Food Helper

Playing catch up. I've been so very busy the last couple of months. Couple of trips to Missouri, few to Canada and one to Rhode Island. Trying to get myself caught up again. 

I did manage to make one race this year. ONE. That's it. I have really missed them and love doing them so much. The one I did make was one of my fave's. It's through a campground, so pretty and mostly shaded. Downfall are those pesky campers cooking bacon and eggs while we run. 

race (1)

One thing I love most about these small town 5k races is running into people you least expect and meeting new friends. I always meet someone new. But the biggest best surprises are running into great old friends you haven't seen for a very long time. This is one of them. Have missed her and was great to see her.

race (2)

Ahh, playing in the rain. Does that really ever get old. Some of the most fun you can have. Just nothing comparable to great puddles. (Don't worry or call DCFS, I only let her do this when it's just rain and no lightening).


It's funny how we always say I wish our kids would stay little. You miss the stages that have passed. They grow up so fast. And although these are all true, it's nice to enjoy the present stage and not dwell on what has slipped passed. Because I cannot stress enough how wonderful it's been to be able to have her help out in the kitchen.

salad (1)

She's having fun, learning things she'll need for the rest of her life and helping me out as well. She's all about chopping things these days and she just made my lunch for several days and she loved it.

salad (2)

She actually hates salad and homemade applesauce, but she loved making it and I loved eating both. It's a win-win. I take full advantage of the present stage.

salad (3)

On our way to a softball game this summer we always passed this sunflower patch. Was always so pretty. She didn't believe us that the sunflower seeds she eats at every single softball game come from these flowers. So we stopped for proof. They weren't ready to where you can see them yet, so she still doesn't believe us. We're parents, we don't know anything ya know.

sunflowers (1)

Today, a picture by sunflowers was pure torture. Maybe now you should call DCFS. It's bad.

sunflowers (2)

I'll try not to be MIA for so long again, but it happens. Hope you have all been well.

Do you love sunflower seeds?

Do you have a kitchen helper?

What is your favorite part about races?

Slime is coming around our house again. This summer alone, I wish I had invented Elmer's Glue. Wow !!!

This time she's making the Borax version but seems like there are a million of new recipes this year.

slime (1)

The contact solution version is a good one too.  And definitely the shaving cream one.

slime (2)

I think all versions are fun. This one isn't sticky, doesn't leave a film on your hands and was cheap and easy.

slime (3)

She wasn't quite done with the green yet but I snagged the photo before she was ready. It did turn out smooth like the others.

slime (4)

She has now moved on to creating her own slime. She doesn't measure anything, so it's nothing I can post. But she's gotten quite good at it. The little chemist.

What version of slime do you make?

Do your kids even like slime?

Please share any good recipe you have.

That time of summer again when all the small towns have their Fun Days. Always such a good time for all the kids.

Deep conversation. Or nostril inspection.

Fun Summer Drinks

My neighbor made the cutest neatest drinks ever !!

I think this first one without the alcohol would make a really cute ice cream float for kids too. 

drinks (1)

The creativeness of making these is not my talent.

drinks (2)

But drinking them is !!!  They were all very good.

drinks (3)

I almost felt bad on this last strawberry one. I'm sure it took much more effort to make it, than it did for me to suck it down. 

Have a great day !

Have any fun summer drink ideas?

How far did you run today?

Favorite summer BBQ food?
