In the fast-paced world of fitness, having the right gear can make or break your ability to achieve your goals. When it comes to exercising headphones, it’s not just about delivering outstanding music; it’s also about assuring a secure fit, durability, and sweat resistance. Whether you’re jogging through New York’s bustling streets, trekking through Canada’s breathtaking landscapes, or going to the gym in the heart of Europe, the proper pair of exercise headphones may be your ultimate fitness companion.
Ready to jump straight into the top earbuds and headphones for various activities? Dive in with our top picks:
1. Apple AirPods Pro
In 2016, Apple’s AirPods Pro made wireless headphones cool. These earbuds offer a comfortable fit, especially during exercises, thanks to changeable silicone tips and a simple Ear Tip Fit Test.
The sound quality is excellent, and you can adjust your music with a single touch on the stem. Because of the sleek charging case, the battery life is impressive. Yes, they’re a little costly, but we think the AirPods Pro are worth it.
2. Jabra Elite Active 75t
These superior quality wireless earbuds are sweatproof and waterproof, making them ideal for jogging and workouts. They’re 20% smaller and lighter than the Jabra Elite Active 65t, ensuring a secure fit during workout. They are comfortable and configurable with a free app, have 7.5 hours of listening time, a handy case for extra protection, and a total battery life of 28 hours.
3. Bose Sport Earbuds
These are just as comfortable as our top fitness earbuds and sound fantastic—the right blend of deep bass and crisp treble. They’re sweatproof and come with a free app that allows you to assign multiple activities to the touch controls, such as monitoring your battery level or moving ahead in tracks. The battery, on the other hand, does not last as long as our winning pair.
4. Honor Earbuds 2 Lite
These Honour earbuds prove that superb genuine wireless headphones don’t have to be expensive. They’re light, comfortable, and fit, with excellent noise cancellation for intense workouts. While touch controls do not allow you to modify the volume, the outstanding 10-hour battery life compensates. In addition, the 10 hours of battery life (32 with case), noise cancellation, and accessories like a charging case and USB cord, all controlled by the earbud are among the features.
5. JBL Reflect Flow
These sweatproof and waterproof true wireless headphones are great for water sports enthusiasts. They compete with our winner and runner-up in terms of sound quality, but they’re not as small or as comfy. Having said that, they fit snugly and last for 10 hours between charges. The charging case adds another 20 hours, bringing the total to a comfortable 30.
6. Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats
These fitness headphones are ideal for long workouts because of their remarkable 15-hour battery life and quick two-hour recharge time. They are comfortable to wear and remain secure throughout strenuous workout thanks to the ear hooks. If you want true wireless, the Powerbeats Pro provide the same high-quality music and long-lasting battery without the need of a connecting cable.
7. Google Pixel Buds A-Series
These sweat and water-resistant earbuds stay securely in place even during rigorous workouts. They are chic, discreet, and almost unnoticeable in the ear. You can listen to your playlist without fear of sound leakage. Despite the lack of touch volume controls, they impress with great sound and Google Assistant compatibility for Android phones.
8. Jam Athlete
The Jam Athletes are an excellent alternative if you wish to be completely wire-free. They sound amazing, despite lacking the powerful bass, and they’re sweat proof as well. Ear hooks keep them in place, and the charging case extends their battery life to 30 hours overall.
9. Adidas Sport RPD-01 Bluetooth Headphones
Sweatproof but not waterproof, these headphones have a powerful sound with a lot of booming bass. The neckband design keeps them secure when jogging, and the earbuds magnetically clip together when not in use, just like our award-winning in-ear fitness headphones. You’ll also have 12 hours of listening time between charges.
Now that we’ve looked at the top workout headphones, each of which is designed to fulfil the demands of different activities, it’s time to make an informed pick based on your preferences and needs. Choose one that suits your workout goals, ensuring that each beat brings you closer to achievement.
