The same way "We Will Rock You" can rally pro athletes and rabid fans at sports arenas, it can motivate you to crush your workout. Listening to songs with such thumping bass lines can help you feel more powerful, according to research from Northwestern University.

This works because deep sounds and voices are associated with confidence and strength, says study author Dennis Yu-Wei Hsu, Ph.D. And while this may help you hoist heavier weights in the gym, there's likely more than just the physical payoff: A bass-heavy playlist like the one below may boost mental confidence as well-like before a blind date or a presentation at work.

The day when I received the device, I load all my favorites music in it, This device built-in 8GB after I load 500 songs, there are still over 6GB memory left, I will load other lovely songs in future when I collect more. I often use this music player in two way, one is that I can plug the earphone into the earphone jack, listen to music by earphone, The other way is very cool that I strongly recommend to all of you, if your car has audio port, you could connect the music player with your car by audio cable, after that you could enjoy your favorites songs on your car.Check the products here: http://boseworkout.com
