The Rhythm of Fitness

Track your workouts with SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones* powered by Intel

Rock your workout and track your data

Imagine a personal audio system that combines your love of music with your passion for fitness and better health, without the need for multiple devices. SMS Audio, a premier audio headphone and accessories brand from Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, together with Intel has developed a wearable device for fitness-minded music fans.

Merging premier sound quality with the latest in fitness-monitoring biometrics technology, the headphones include a built-in optical sensor that continuously measures your heart rate while dynamically removing noise signals caused by your body’s motion during your workout.

Custom heart rate monitor

A jointly-developed heart rate monitor in-ear headphone will put an end to the less convenient, less comfortable chest strap-style monitor while delivering reliable and consistent heart rate monitoring to enable peak performance and progress tracking.

No batteries required

Eliminate the need to charge the headphones with a 3.5 mm gold-plated audio jack that powers the biometric monitoring capabilities so users have the freedom of on-the-go power.

Sync with RunKeeper*

To help track your heart rate, pace, distance, elevation, and calorie burn, the SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones will be compatible with the popular mainstream fitness app RunKeeper, with additional application support planned in the future.


The headphones will come with a tangle-free cord with an in-line microphone, neoprene carrying case, and three sizes of ear gels and hooks.



The SMS Audio BioSport In-Ear Headphones will be available at SMSAudio.com in the fall of 2014. Specific pricing will be announced later this year.
