Getting active is always more fun with music, especially when you exercise solo. Normal headphones aren’t often up to the challenge, though, breaking when they’re covered in sweat and falling out when you move from a walk to a jog. So it’s important to use a pair of headphones made for sports.
Key features in sports headphones to look for include a stabilizer, like ear hooks, sweat resistance and different size eartips for you to choose from to get the perfect fit. Below are four top rated sports headphones that not only deliver a superior auditory experience, but also won’t break the bank.
1. Philips ActionFit Sports SHQ4200 ($35 on Amazon)
The flexible neckband auto-adjusts to your head for a perfect fit and you can choose from three eartip sizes for the best fit.
2. Sony MDR-AS200 ($16 on Amazon)
The Sony MDR-AS200 is built to stay in, with a loop hanger for stable fitting and angled earbuds that stay put.
3. Koss KSC 32 FitClips ($18 on Amazon)
Amazon reviewers rave about the fit as well as the sound quality of the FitClips earbuds. They come in five colors designed to appeal to women, including coral, purple and lime.
4. Philips ActionFit Sports SHQ1200 ($20 on Amazon)
Smaller and lighter than the SHQ4200 earbuds, these are coated in an anti-slip rubber to keep them in your ears while you run and sweat, even in the rain.
