If you're someone who spends a lot of time in the gym, pounding pavement, or blazing the weekend trails, the Mighty player will appeal to you in exactly five words: streaming music without a phone. While Spotify has changed the landscape of streaming audio, the hardware that plays it just hasn't been able to keep up. Oftentimes your only option is to lug along your cumbersome phone on your run or workout, leading to unintentional projectile devices. Mighty Audio have taken to Kickstarter to fix this simple but pervasive problem, and the Mighty is their vision.

The Mighty is a 1.5” square device that clips onto your clothing and stays there by weighing only 0.6 ounces. Its shell resists the sweat and water that comes with your most vigorous activities. Going completely wireless for its operations is no problem, both for syncing to your phone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and playing out of wireless earphones or speakers. On the tech front, the Mighty companion/sync app plays well with both iOS and Android. It packs 4 GB of memory, enough to store up to 48 hours of music, with battery life currently rated for at least 5 hours of continuous playback.

There's plenty of time to back the Mighty on Kickstarter at the link below and be on your way to wireless music freedom.

You could also just buy the Sony SBH-20 (smile.amazon.com/Sony-SBH20-Bluetooth-Stereo-Headset/dp/B00C1CGZT0/) which is basically the same thing without the 4 GB of memory for $35. I've had one for a few years and it works great in the gym, and anywhere else as a controller for streaming music. Battery life is solid too.
If you want the memory, buy a iPod shuffle or one of its many knock-offs for $5.
The Sony SBH-20 still requires you to have your phone on you. Mighty works independently, which is a way better workout experience than having a smartphone on you.
