While regular headphones and wired earphones might have your back during commute and office hours, they not always suffice when it comes to working out. So to handle all the sweat and jerks, you can consider investing in one of these wireless earphones that can suit well for workout sessions with a secure fit and sweatproof build. Note that these have been curated based on their availability on Amazon as well as their listed features.

Bose SoundSport Wireless Earbuds

The Bose SoundSport earbuds help you push yourself with no wires holding you back and deliver consistent audio output, thanks to the Bose active EQ. The earphones are said to offer up to six hours of battery life on a single charge. The exclusive StayHear+ tips help keep these earbuds in place while you are working out and the acoustic ports and hydrophobic cloth are meant to keep the sweat and moisture out. These 22.7g earphones are said to require two hours for a full charge and can deliver an hour of music playback with 15 minutes of charging. What makes them great for workout sessions is the fact that you can modify the volume, skip tracks, take calls and initiate voice commands using the inline mic and controls.

Jaybird Tarah Wireless Sport Headphones

If you love outdoor sports and listening to music as well, then these headphones might be the right choice for you. The Jaybird Tarah Wireless Sport Headphones has a battery life of six hours. It handles splashes and unexpected showers as they are IPX7 (sweatproof and waterproof) certified and have a metallic finish to keep the style intact. The Jaybird Tarah, it is claimed, delivers an hour of playback with 10 minutes of charging and is compatible with the Jaybird app, which allows you to tune the audio as per your preference. Last but not least, they have support for Google Assistant so you can carry out functions without taking out your phone repeatedly.

Aftershokz Trekz Titanium Wireless Bone Conduction Bluetooth Headphones

This wireless bone-conduction headphone by Aftershokz come with a host of audio features, which, when coupled with the bone conduction technology, should deliver decent quality audio and distortion-free voice calling while also allowing you to listen to what’s happening around you. It has a leak layer technology to minimise natural sound leakage and can play your favourite songs for up to six hours on a single charge. They are designed keeping athletes and gym enthusiasts in mind and are IP55 certified to repel sweat, dust and moisture that might accumulate due to long workouts or wicked weather. It comes with a built-in mic and weighs approximately 59.4g, making it easy to use for several hours.

Jaybird Logitech Sweat and Waterproof Tarah Pro Wireless Sport Headphones

The Jaybird Logitech Wireless sport headphones are perfect for fitness enthusiasts and athletes. These have been designed to withstand adverse weather, long, sweaty workout sessions. It delivers great audio quality and is compatible with the Jaybird app so you can customise the sound EQ and other audio settings. The IPX7 certified construction ensures that it can handle falls, splashes of water and any other kind of stress it might face during an adventure trip. It weighs 19.6g and is said to allow two hours of music playback with five minutes of charging and can last for up to 14 hours on a single charge.

JBL Endurance Run Sweat-Proof Sports in-Ear Headphones

This is a much more budget friendly set of earphones for those with an active lifestyle, but who still do not want to break the bank to have that. While most people prefer a wireless solution, we decided to include one 3.5 mm wired option for those who don’t mind  a cable connecting to their smartphone when working out. Often people use arm-worn phone holders with wired headphones, and this set should do just fine in such a use case. The set features 8.2 mm dynamic drivers to output the kind of sound most should like. The IPX5 rating should help protect them against even the heaviest of sweat sessions. Like with most wired headsets, this too has a microphone and button to be able to take calls. What’s a little different is that the headset features magnetic earphones which will allow you to stick them together and drape them securely around your neck while you continue your workout. They feature JBL’s own Fliphook design, which allows you to wear them as a traditional headset, or loop them around your ear and wear them as an over the ear set – depending on your use case or your own preference. Of course, since it has a 3.5 mm connector, you will need to make sure your phone has one, or buy an adapter to allow it to connect. 

boAt Rockerz 255 Sports in-Ear Bluetooth Neckband Earphone with Mic

This wireless Bluetooth headset from boAT is built to be a workout companion, and it won’t burn a hole in your pocket either, because it is a very budget friendly option. It features an IPX5 rating so that you need not worry about them while sweating away all that fat. The company claims that this headset can give you 6 hours of talk time with 150 hours of standby time thanks to the 110 mAh battery. You get additional sized ear pieces because not all ears are alike, so remember to try them out to find the best possible fit. The headset has 10 mm drivers that output the signature boAT sound using the Bluetooth 4.1 technology standard. It also supports voice commands on Android and iOS using Google Assistant and Alexa, so you can command your phone to do things without having to stop the workout.
