Keep on running: Check out these ten workout headphones
Listening to music can give you that extra energy boost when you’re working out. Now that the temperatures are rising and the days are getting longer, there’s no excuse not to go for a run or hit the gym. Let’s take a look at ten headphones that are your ideal workout partners.
Bose SoundSport Free
The Soundsport Free are Bose's first true wireless in-ear headphones. To make sure the earpieces don’t fall out of your ears while jogging, they feature small silicone wing parts to hold them in place. According to Bose, the Bluetooth signal has been improved and the sound quality optimised.
Jabra Elite Sport 2017
These headphones are from last year, but they offer something new: heart rate measurement. Analysing your fitness, these headphones suggest your ideal running speed. By filtering out background noise, you’re sure to enjoy your music no matter how fast you run.
The NW-WS414 are headphones that act as a Walkman: They allow you to drag and drop your songs to save them onto your headphones. Being saltwater-proof, you can even wear them for swimming.
The sudio TRE feature a cable and wing tips, offering a secure fit while running – according to the manufacturer. They offer full sound transparency, meaning you can still hear your surroundings without having to remove the earphones.
JBL Under Armour Sport Wireless
These headphones are designed by Under Armour and engineered by JBL. They’re sweat-proof and are said to sit very comfortably in your ear.
The Jaybird X3 are light and small headphones – so small that they fit under a helmet. They can be worn in two different ways: As regular headphones or upside down with the cable above your ears. To make sure it rests firmly on the back of your head, the cable can be shortened with clips.
Fitbit's headphones are IP67 certified, making them suitable to be submerged quickly without sustaining damage. Yet, they can’t be worn for swimming. The headphones come with padded caps and clips, making sure they fit securely and comfortably in your ears.
Monster iSport Victory Wireless
Monster's iSport Victory headphones are designed to let you train like a monster, as the manufacturer says. Is this true? We don't know. What we do know is that these headphones come with secure fit ear-hooks and are sweat-proof.
Plantronics BackBeat FIT
Plantronic's BackBeat FIT offer superior stability with a behind-the-ear and neckband design and comfortable eartips – and you won’t have a cable problem. Equipped with reflectors, you'll be seen better when jogging in the dark.
Beats Powerbeats³ Wireless
We can't mention headphones without mentioning Beats. The Powerbeats³ have a rather long battery life of up to twelve hours. With a built-in chip, pairing them with your Apple devices is even easier.
