No more sweaty and slippery earphones in the gym! We rounded up the best earphones for you to bring to the gym or even, marathon.
You may look good working out with your cool gym gear and all but what’s not cool is when you’re all sweaty and tugging on your wireless earphones that are slipping off. Here’s how to listen to the bass-pumping jams to fire up your workout and still keep those sets in the ears. Always important to maintain appearances…
JBL Reflect Fit
For the active gymrat
Trying to keep pace while fighting to get those earbuds to stay put through the sweating – this is a struggle every runner knows too well. Fortunately, the JBL Reflect Fit offers a solution for a truly liberating workout. These wireless in-ear headphones rest securely behind the neck for comfortable and hassle-free wear, making it the must-have accessory for nailing those interval runs. With reflective cables designed for ultimate visibility, these are perfect for a good late-night run. Also featuring a heart rate monitor compatible with most popular workout apps, the sweat-proof JBL Reflect Fit is the perfect musical fit for even the most intense of sessions.
Bose SoundSport wireless
Ticking all the right boxes in the comfort and fit category, the sweat-proof Bose SoundSport wireless headphones are equipped with StayHear+ eartips that ensures a great fit while you are moving around. When working out outdoors, the SoundSport settings lets ambient sound filter in for safety and when you’re indoors, you can pump up the bass for that fierce workout.
Monster iSport Victory
A decent entry-level exercise headphones
At only 15g, this super lightweight set up surprisingly stays on and is sweat-proof during workouts. While it lacks the the new tech features in a pair of exercise earphones (no heart rate monitor and average sound), it fits snug in your ear and has 10-hours of Bluetooth battery life. Not too shabby.
Jabra Elite Sport True
For fans of the pod design
Air buds for exercise? We weren’t so sure at first but the upgraded version is fully waterproof, wireless, has a built-in heart-rate monitor, decent battery life and is compatible with most leading third-party fitness apps as well as Jabra’s companion fitness app. If you’re worried about the fit, it actually has a tight seal if you fix it on your ears properly.
Urbanears Stadion Active
For outdoor joggers
If running outdoors is your main exercise routine, then full-on noise cancellation might not be the best idea. The Urbanears Stadion Active lets in outside noise so you’ll still be aware of your surroundings when running in the open. The bold design means eliminates any loose and dangling wires making it great for high intensity workouts.
Beats PowerBeats 3
The all-rounder earphones
With a great fit that stays on even during high impact exercise, the recent version of the the Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless earphones also offers outstanding sound for a Bluetooth sports headphone, and strong battery life (12 hours). Thanks to Apple’s W1 chip, its pairing technology is one of the best out there – it’s near automatic for iOS users and it also works fast with Android phones.
