Uniquely designed for any physical activity, sport earbuds and headphones will fit tight, boast excellent audio to support your pounding workout soundtrack, are sweat-proof and feature easy communication options so you don’t have to take them out to talk to someone.
Here are our four picks that hit the brief:
JBL Under Armour Project Rock True Wireless
Dwayne Johnson is a man who knows a thing or two about fitness and this is reflected in the design of these True Wireless earbuds. Housed in a smart aluminium charging case that clips to a belt or bag, these comfortable, snug-fitting earbuds will remain in place throughout even the most strenuous of workouts. An excellent overall sound for the size, the earbuds are waterproof and offer two transparency modes, so you’re always aware of what’s going on around you and can communicate easily without removing them. Throw in call-making functionality and you have the perfect pair for your workout.
Jabra Elite Active 75T
Jabra, through mixing materials with design, has produced a small inobtrusive earbud that matches the demands of any vigorous workout. As such they are water and sweat proof, dust resistant and feature a rubberised coating that enables a secure fit and prevents them from slipping out of position. There are 7.5 hours of battery life from a single charge and 28 hours in the charging case. Controls are mapped to both left and right buds with a handy transparency mode for dropping out of your fitness playlist to hold a conversation. Quality sound with an emphasis on low end round off what is essentially the perfect fitness earbud.
JBL Under Armour Sport Wireless Train
If wearing earbuds while you’re working out isn’t your thing, these on-ear JBL Under Armour headphones are an excellent alternative. Well built to survive being thrown into a gym bag, the headband clamps tightly to the head to prevent them from falling off during exercise, but the extra padding on the ear cups prevents them from being uncomfortable. Controls are accessed via large non-slip buttons, and you can pause your workout soundtrack to chat with a single touch. A warm and consistent sound with just the right amount of bass, you can stay active with 16 hours of battery life.
Skullcandy Sesh Evo
The Sesh Evos are very affordable and still deliver great bang for your clams. Tile tracker – check! IP55 sweat-and dust-resistant rating – check! Separate EQ modes for movies, music and podcasts – check! The Sesh Evos boast the compact, no-stem design which many prefer, and you can control volume, track-skip, calls, assistant and EQ modes – without ever having to get your mitts onto your phone. Intuitive and super lightweight, the Sesh Evos offer an effortless intro to all things truly wireless.
