The 9 Best Wired Sports Headphones For Any Budget
An inexpensive pair of headphones for runners
If you're a runner, you know how important it is to have a pair of unsealed headphones for safety. These in-ear, sweat-resistant headphones allow in just the right amount of ambient sound. Plus, their twist-to-lock design keeps them in your ear at any running pace!
On-ear headphones that can keep up with you
The Skullcandy Grind offer great sound at an incredibly reasonable price point. They boast features found in much more expensive brands, such as a built-in mic and an on-ear control button that lets you skip tracks and pause music when needed.
Antibacterial headphones for the sweatiest workouts
We love the Sennheiser CX 686G sports headphones, in part, because its ear adapters are made with an antibacterial, fully washable material. The sealed, in-ear design blocks out unwanted gym noise, and they have terrific, crisp sound.
Premium in-ear headphones for runners
Chances are, you've already heard about the Bose name: It's synonymous with high-quality headphones. And indeed, the sweatproof Bose Soundsport are just that — in-ear safety headphones that deliver incredibly crisp highs and natural lows.
Premium on-ear headphones for intense workouts
The Combat+ from Soul Electronics impressed us with their interchangeable and washable ear pads, made from body-heat activated memory foam. A compression fit keeps them secure during exercise, while the breathable headband keeps you cool.
In-ear headphones with a lightning connector for iPhones
Need of a new pair of premium in-ear, lightning-compatible headphones? Check out the JBL Reflect Aware for iPhone 7s and newer models. They offer both adaptive noise control (great for runners) and a full noise cancellation mode for drowning out the loudest grunts at the gym.
A simple, sporty upgrade for Apple EarPods and AirPods
Upgrade your Apple headphones without breaking the bank! The EarBuddyz EarPod cover is a silicone cover that slips over your AirPods or stock Apple EarPods, improving their ability to grip your inner ear during exercise and making them more comfortable to wear as well.
