REVIEW – I normally only run for two reasons: to get away from something or for exercise. In this case, it’s running for the exercise and health is the reward.
But it takes motivation and determination to get out and run. You have to be your own personal coach to get yourself motivated and moving.
But what if you had someone, or something, to push and encourage you on your running, and all the while, keeping track of your progress?
Well, look no further because with the Run Free Pro BIO headphones from Soul Electronics, now it is possible.
What is it?
The Run Free Pro BIO headphones are Soul Electronic’s first A.I Earphones with GAIT Analysis technology to monitor your running form and give real-time voice coaching.
With the Beflex BiomechEngine® app, it tracks your running form using GAIT Analysis technology. The real-time voice coach informs you on how you are running and if you need improvement in certain aspects of your running.
And you are able to review your results with the help of the app.
What’s In The Box?
The headphones come with several sizes of eartips and earlocks. It also comes with a zippered carrying case, USB cable, cable managers, User Guide, and pamphlet.

Please watch the video below for my full review on the Run Free Pro Bio Headphones from Soul Electronics.
I really enjoyed using these headphones. At first, I thought that the voice coaching would be annoying to have to hear someone “coaching” me in my headphones while I ran. In the end, it actually helped me in keeping proper form when running. And it didn’t annoy me as I thought it would. I actually looked forward to hearing any feedback that would help me in my running form. Having the voice prompts in real-time reassures me that the Soul FIT app is monitoring me right at that moment I am running.
The ability to see the results after my run was both educational and entertaining. Plus, seeing my results makes me want to run better and improve my running performance.
Those results are something I wouldn’t have known by myself. So, it’s good to know that I have a “coach” looking out to help me improve my running.
