Best earphones for an active lifestyle

Digit Expert | 20 Jan 2020

If you’re a fitness enthusiast with an active lifestyle, you know how hard it can be to find the perfect pair of earphones to accompany you during each fitness routine. Whether you love running to the rhythm of a great soundtrack pulsating in your ears, or want to enhance your workouts in the gym with some great beats, the last thing you need is a pair of earphones that keep falling off. It's important to keep an eye out for great connectivity features and good looks. Here are a few earphones for an active lifestyle.

JBL Endurance Sprint

The JBL Endurance Sprint is a pair that’s a good choice for runners and swimmers alike. With an IPX7 waterproof body, this pair should not have any issues dealing with sweat or even a bit of rain. The pair comes with a MagHook design, which is a hook-like design that allows the pair to fit snugly on the ears and prevents it from falling out when you work out. The hook design also has touch controls built into the body, which allows you to control music and manage calls without having to reach for your smartphone every time.

Sony Extra Bass MDR-XB50BS

As the name would suggest, the Sony Extra Bass MDR-XB50BS is a pair of wireless headphones that promises to offer its users extra bass. This claim is backed by the 12mm dynamic driver units that are meant to enhance the bass. What makes this a good option for fitness enthusiasts is the fact that it has a water- and sweat-proof body that ensures the earphones will function even after you’ve put it through some intense workout sessions. The earphones also come with a built-in microphone that lets you manage your calls quite easily. The brand claims that the battery is good enough to offer 8.5 hours of playback, which should enable you to power through multiple workout sessions.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit 350

If you’re looking for earphones that offer a certain degree of noise cancellation, then the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 350 should be a decent option for you. With their 8mm drivers and passive noise-cancelling buds, they should be able to offer rich sounds while blocking out some environmental noises. The build has an IPX5 rating, making them fairly waterproof and sweatproof. The earpieces are built with a looped design that’s supported with a 2-in-1 stability clip that should help you keep these earphones on even during a rigorous cross-fit session. The brand claims that these earphones offer six hours of playback after a single charge, making them another decent option if you’re looking for something that powers you through multiple workout sessions. Further, do keep in mind that the earphones are lightweight, and shouldn’t really feel too uncomfortable even after wearing them for a long time.

Anker SoundBuds Slim+

The Anker SoundBuds Slim+ is a pair of wireless headphones that you can sport at the gym with ease, thanks to add-ons like cord management clips, multiple ear wings, multiple ear tips, and a corded shirt clip, all of which ensure a good fit and convenience every step of the way. The Anker SoundBuds Slim+ should offer decent sound quality too, as they come with the Qualcomm aptX technology. This should offer a dynamic sound range and decent bass. Weighing only 13.6gm, these earphones shouldn’t hamper your workout in any way.
