Best Sports Headphones of 2020


1. Optoma NuForce BE Sport3 review

Optoma NuForce Be Sport4 is the company’s second iteration of its Be Sport earbuds. The Be Sport4 like the earbuds before it are aptX and AAC compatible, IPX5-rated, provide SpinFit TwinBlade ear tips, and a listed 10-hour battery life. The most obvious update from the third to fourth generation is the exterior design. The Sports activity4 earbud housings are usually squared off (rather than circular) but on the surface, all else seems similar. If you like to listen to music while exercising and need something that can withstand the sweatiest of workouts, then the NuForce Be Sport4 is for you. They’re IPX5-ranked which means they can withstand strong streams of water being directed at it, but can’t survive complete submersion. Optoma NuForce provides plenty of ear and wingtip accessories for you to mix and match, allowing for the perfect fit.

If you’re in need of wireless workout earbuds or just consider yourself a die-hard bass lover, then yes. Though there are a few things sacrificed due to the bass emphasis, just like the clarity of the mids and treble frequencies, the NuForce Become Sports activity4 maintain a strong connectivity range beyond the listed 10 meters. What’s more the IPX5 rating serves its purpose and allows listeners to exercise in confidence knowing that no amount of sweat will harm the internal components.

2. Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless


he best headphones for running with a wireless connection that we’ve tested so far are the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless. These comfortable headphones are great for running since they have no wires connecting each earbud. Their ear-hook design also makes them feel impressively stable so that they won’t fall out or move around during a run, and their very easy-to-use controls mean you can change your music or answer a phone call without fumbling around with your headphones.

These headphones have a very well-balanced sound profile that lends itself well to a wide variety of genres, though their slightly recessed treble-range may make some vocals good dull and listless. They last almost 11.5 hours off a single charge, and you can charge them fully by tossing them in their case in around 45 minutes, which is excellent. They feature seamless pairing to Apple devices thanks to the H1 chip, and they connect just like any normal Bluetooth headphones to any other device.

Unfortunately, while their sound profile is quite accurate and natural, some people may find they lack a bit of bass in comparison to the more bass-heavy or excited audio profiles that are common with many popular headphones; especially if you listen to a lot of EDM and like a bit of extra thump to keep you motivated. They also don’t have any EQ options within their app, so you can’t bump up their bass if you’d prefer more kick, which is a shame. That being said, these headphones are among the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds for running and working out and are a great choice for taking with you on a run.


3. Jabra Elite Sport


If you like to be at the innovative of audio-based fitness and health technical, look no further than the Jabra Elite Sport. I’ve been using these for about six months and they have really expanded on me.

The best kind of operating and gym headphones recently has been Wireless Bluetooth ones with a cable between them. These are great, but that cable, no matter how safely the headphones themselves fit, will always catch on the back of your throat if it’s a reduce fit, or increase the consequences of severity if it’s a limited fit. Either way, having a cable present it annoying. With real wi-fi pals, that’s not a problem: there are no cables. Compared with most real wireless, Jabra’s Elite Sport are enclosed against sweating and rainfall but that’s only the beginning of their abilities.

They also sport uncannily precise beat monitoring via the blood shifting through your hearing and less precise activity receptors, used to depend on repetitions and calculate run/cycle pedal rotation and the like. An Android/iOS app watches the receptors and faucets into your phone’s GPS, to keep you up to now with the current and regular beat, rate, range, and even exercise strength, all via speech hints.

Where the app tries hard but is not able is in trying to type out an exercise program for you (to hit objectives such as keeping or improving overall fitness). I found this have not very well at all, as it just never seemed to learn or modify to my degree of fitness and health. Obviously, every exercise I do is of LEVEL 5 INTENSITY, so I can’t ever enhance. Really, right.

But even despite that, I still use these Jabras sports headphones a lot. Once you get the right size ear tips and hook varieties on they are completely unshakeable, without too much growth when you hit the floor when operating. The sound is really not bad, either. For the kind of songs you pay attention to while training, they’ve got all you need. They are about as good as real wi-fi pals get in conditions of battery pack too, with about 4.5 times per cost even with all the receptors beavering away.

I would not put them on for more than a couple of time as realize get unpleasant but they’re for anything short of a gathering. As mentioned, the beat monitoring is also, amazingly, fairly accurate

4. Bose SoundSport Wireless


The Bose SoundSport Wireless are good wireless sports earbuds. They’re comfortable and should be stable and breathable enough to take with you to the gym. Their sound profile is well-balanced, and their semi-open design gives them a better soundstage than most in-ears. Unfortunately, their 6-hour battery life is only mediocre and they don’t block as much noise as other in-ear/earbuds which is not ideal for commuting. Their build quality also isn’t as durable as some of the other Bose designs. On the upside, they’re very portable, and they include a decent carrying case as well.

The Bose SoundSport Wireless are decent mixed usage headphones. They’re geared for sports with their compact wireless design but don’t isolate enough for loud environments, which makes them a little less suitable for commuting. On the upside, they have a good wireless range, a comfortable earbud fit that you can wear for hours, and a well-balanced sound that’s good enough for most listeners.

5. JBL REFLECT MINI 2 Wireless


If you’re looking for something a little more affordable without giving up much in the way of performance, give the JBL Reflect Mini 2 a shot. They aren’t as comfortable or sturdy-feeling as the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless, but they’re quite a bit cheaper. Their sound profile isn’t as well-balanced since they have a bit of an overemphasized bass, which some might prefer. They’re also better at blocking out ambient noise and don’t leak as much audio, which is helpful if you intend to also use them in your daily commute. They also have an in-line microphone and remote that places the most important functions within easy reach.

If you require the freedom and flexibility of a truly wireless design and don’t mind paying more, get the Beats. If you want to save a fair bit of money without missing out on sound quality, the JBL is a good choice.

6. Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless


The best headphones for running with an over-ear design that we’ve tested so far are the Sennheiser PXC 550. These over-ear Bluetooth headphones are comfortable and lightweight and feel stable enough on your head to not move during runs. Their touch-sensitive controls are easy to use, allowing you to easily change tracks with a quick arm movement, so you don’t ruin your run’s momentum.

Their out-of-the-box sound profile is quite well-balanced and versatile enough for a wide range of genres and content. While their dedicated companion app has some EQ presets, it doesn’t allow you to fully customize the sound profile with a graphic or parametric EQ, despite advertising that you can, which is a shame. On the upside, their 27.5-hour battery life is great, and they support both multi-device and NFC pairing, so you can easily pair them to your devices.

Unfortunately, their touch-sensitive controls may not be for everyone, especially if you live in colder climates that require gloves or winter caps while running outside. If you want physical settings, you may want to consider the Beats Studio 3 Wireless, though they don’t perform quite as well for sports overall, making the Sennheiser the best over-ear headphones for operating or working out that we’ve tested to date.

7. Beats Powerbeats3


The Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless are great sports headphones that are fairly versatile for everyday casual use. They have more accurate audio reproduction than the previous Powerbeats 2 Wireless but kept a similar sports-oriented design. Their stable ear-hooks and the breathable in-ear fit are great for working out. Unfortunately, they don’t have the best noise isolation performance, which will affect their effectiveness during a daily commute or at the office. On the upside, they don’t leak too much so you can mask more ambient sound by raising your volume, and their battery life will last you for a full workday.

The Beats Powerbeats 3 Wireless have a better and more accurate sound compared to the previous Powerbeats2 that critical listeners will enjoy. They don’t have the best isolation performance but they don’t leak, which is useful for commuting and in the office for blocking out even more noise. The in-ear fit might not be ideal for everyone, especially for long periods of time. On the upside, their ear-hook design offers great stability for sports, and they are breathable and portable to bring to your workouts. Regrettably, their latency may be a bit too high for watching TV and gaming, and their microphone performance is sub-par for online multiplayer games.

8. Jaybird Vista Truly Wireless


The best headphones for running with a truly wireless design that we’ve tested so far are the Jaybird Vista. These truly wireless in-ears are surprisingly comfortable as they don’t enter the ear canal as deep as some other in-ear options. Their physical control scheme is quite decent, and their stability fins help them stay in place in your ear. They feel very premium and durable and are rated IPX7 for sweat and water resistance, though this isn’t something we currently test for.

Their out-of-the-box sound profile is quite well-balanced and is well-suited for a wide range of genres, though it may be slightly piercing on brighter tracks. That being said, they’re compatible with Jaybird’s great MySound app so you can fully fine-tune their sound with a parametric EQ or presets. Unfortunately, while their physical buttons are decent overall, both earbuds have the same controls, so they’re somewhat limited.

These headphones have a 5.5-hour battery, which is decent for truly wireless headphones, though their charging case only gives an additional two charges, which isn’t great. Overall, they’re an excellent choice for running thanks to their stable fit and truly wireless design that eliminates all cables.

9. Amazon Echo Buds Truly Wireless


If you aren’t worried about your surroundings and want something that helps keep you focused, get the Amazon Echo Buds. They aren’t as comfortable as the Jaybird Vista Truly Wireless, and their touch-sensitive controls may bother some people, but they isolate much more background noise thanks to their ANC, and their default sound profile isn’t as bright and piercing. They have a very similar single-charge battery life, but their case gives five charges, which is great. Unfortunately, while their app has a graphic EQ, it doesn’t allow for the same kind of fine-tuning because the parametric EQ in Jaybird’s app.

If you want a more comfortable pair of in-ears with physical settings, obtain the Jaybird, but if you want something with ANC that will do a much better job at blocking out background sound, go for the Amazon.

10. SoundPeats TrueFree/True Wireless


The best budget headphones for running that we’ve tested so far are the SoundPeats TrueFree. These truly wireless in-ears have a low-profile design that doesn’t protrude from your ears too much and have a very stable fit without the need for stability fins. They’re made of sturdy-feeling, dense plastic and don’t weigh very much, so they shouldn’t get damaged by accidental drops. An IPX4 rating for sweat and water protection is an added bonus, even though we don’t test for that.

They have a bass-heavy sound delivery that’ll keep you pumped up if you listen to a lot of EDM or hip-hop while you run but might come across as a little muddy on more delicate tracks. They do a good job of isolating background noise so you can stay focused on your music and maintaining your tempo. Sound leakage is minimal, so you won’t have to worry about bothering others even if you listen to your music very loud.

Unfortunately, battery life is disappointing, at just over 3 hours, but that can be extended with a standby mode as well as their carrying case, which provide enough energy for an additional four charges. Their case also lacks a cover and relies on magnets to keep the buds in places. However, there are more expensive variants they do come with a lid, although we haven’t tested them yet. All in all, these are among the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds for running and working out we’ve examined and deliver great performance for their price.

11. AfterShokz Aeropex Bone Conduction


The best headphones for running outdoors that we’ve tested so far are the AfterShokz Aeropex Bone Conduction. As the name implies, these headphones rest on your temples, not your ears, and transfer sound via vibrations in your bones. They primarily use a silicone material in their construction and have a flexible, if thin, headband, so they don’t feel like they’ll be damaged in a few accidental drops. They’re also rated IP57 for dust and water protection, though this isn’t something that we test for. Their 13-hour battery life, meanwhile, should get you through even longer marathons on a single charge.

Their unique design means that they lack a lot of bass, especially at the low-end, so if you’re the type who listens to a lot of EDM or hip hop to stay motivated during your runs, you might be a little disappointed. Of course, this also lets you stay aware of your surroundings, and the rest of their sound profile is versatile enough for other musical genres and audio content.

On the downside, they leak quite a bit of sound, so that they aren’t the best for listening in a quiet environment like an office or a library. They also work with a propriety charging cable, which might be a bit of a problem if it becomes damaged or is lost. With that said, if staying alert to your surroundings is a priority throughout your runs, it’s hard to do better than these.

12. Jabra Elite Active 65t Truly Wireless


The Jabra Elite Active 65t are great sports earbuds designed to be lightweight, breathable, and portable. Slightly improved from the Jabra Elite 65t, these earbuds have a premium look and a more secure carrying case that’ll help protect your earbuds from slight impacts. Unfortunately, they don’t have the most comfortable fit and can be fatiguing if you’re using them for long periods. Their sound profile is also a bit unbalanced as there’s an overemphasis in the bass and treble ranges. However, the companion app offers a graphic EQ, allowing you to tweak the sound to better suit your preferences.

The Jabra Elite Active 65t are sports earbuds designed for portability and stability. These earbuds can be fatiguing to wear for long workout sessions. Those who use them in the office might also find their 5.2-hour battery life to be a little too short. Nevertheless, they do come with two additional charges in the case. These earbuds do a great job of isolating noise; while they can reduce some of the audio produced by bus or train engines, they’ll cut down more chatter and speech. On the downside, critical listeners might not like the overemphasized bass and treble. Gamers also won’t be able to use these earbuds for their consoles and PC users might find the lag too high to enjoy.

13. Jaybird Tarah Pro Wireless


The Jaybird Tarah Pro are great wireless sports in-ears that are fairly versatile for everyday casual use. They are an upgraded version of the regular Tarah model with better battery life, lower latency, slightly better sound quality, and new magnetic earbuds. They are also compatible with the Jaybird MySound app that lets you EQ the sound to your liking. Jaybird kept the same overall design of the Tarah, meaning the Pro version is also very portable and breathable for sports. Unfortunately, they have a new proprietary charging cradle that is cumbersome and restrictive, and for some reason, the Pro edition can’t connect to two devices simultaneously, while the regular Tarah and Jaybird X4 can. On the upside, they will have an amazing wireless range and isolate a good amount of ambient noise.

The Tarah Professional have good sound quality for in-ears and are pretty comfortable thanks to their earbud-like style. They have decent sound isolation performance and barely leak, making them a good option for commuting and at the office. However, these are great sports-oriented headphones that have a stable and breathable design. Unfortunately, they won’t be ideal for watching TV or gaming due to their high latency.

14. JBL Endurance Peak Truly Wireless Headphones Review


The JBL Endurance Peak are a truly wireless variant of the JBL Stamina Sprint. They’re both sporty, well-built in-ear headphones with a durable, rubberized finish that is great for running or use at the gym. They sound very similar, with a neutral and versatile sound profile that lends itself well to a wide variety of music genres. The biggest difference between these two models lies in the battery – since the Endurance Peak are truly wireless, they take a hit to their continuous playtime and last for only 4 hours on a charge compared to the Sprint’s 9 hrs of battery life. On the upside, the Peak’s charging case can carry up to 24 hours of additional battery life. Unfortunately, they have a finicky control scheme and aren’t the most comfortable in-ears, but they’re a versatile pair of earbuds that are decent for most uses.

The JBL Endurance Peak are decent for mixed usage thanks to their truly wireless, sporty design that works well for some use cases. Even though they’re slightly larger than average earbuds, they’re compact enough to carry around on your person and come with a good charging hard situation. Although they’re not the most comfy in-ears and don’t have a very easy-to-use handle scheme, they’re stable enough for most sports and isolate enough to be good for commuting or office use.

15. JBL UA True Wireless Flash Headphones Review


The JBL Under Armour True Wireless Flash are great sports headphones that stand out thanks to their good audio reproduction and their rugged build quality. They are versatile for a wide variety of music genres, are sweat-proof and waterproof, and their bulky design feels durable for most intense sports. Their fit is good and fairly comfortable, on top of sealing off ambient noise, making them well-rounded for some everyday uses. Unfortunately, they won’t be great for watching videos due to their very high latency, and some may feel like 4 hours of battery life isn’t enough for a single charge. On the upside, they also offer a 12-month subscription for Under Armour’s fitness app called MapMyRun.

The JBL True Wireless Flash has good audio reproduction for in-ears and their small design is easy to carry around in your commute or at the gym. They also create a good seal in your ears, which isolates a good amount of ambient sound, which is good for public transit or at the office. They are designed as sports activities headphones because of their stability fins and waterproof build. They don’t have the longest battery existence for flights or a normal workday, but they’ll be fine for working out. However, their latency is very high and they shouldn’t be used for watching video content and gaming.

16. Bose SoundSport In-Ear Headphones Review


The Bose SoundSport are decent-sounding in-ear earbuds. They have a comfortable and open fit that some may prefer over typical in-ear models. The tips’ design, lets you hear traffic while jogging but also, doesn’t block any ambient noise. They won’t be ideal for loud and noisy commutes.
The primary usage for these headphones is for sports. The lack of isolation means they won’t be versatile enough for loud environments and commuting. On the upside, they deliver a decent enough sound for most listeners, and they’re stable, portable and breathable plenty of, to comfortably run and workout with.

17. Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless Headphones Review


The Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless are great sports headphones that are fairly versatile for everyday casual use. They have more accurate audio reproduction than the previous Powerbeats 2 Wireless but kept a similar sports-oriented design. Their stable ear-hooks and the breathable in-ear fit are great for working out. Unfortunately, they don’t have the best noise isolation performance, which will affect their effectiveness during a daily commute or at the office. On the upside, they don’t leak too much so you can mask more ambient sound by raising your volume, and their battery life will last you for a full workday.
The Beats Powerbeats 3 Wireless have a better and more accurate sound compared to the previous Powerbeats2 that critical listeners will enjoy. They don’t have the best isolation performance but they don’t leak, which is useful for commuting and in the office for blocking out even more noise. The in-ear fit might not be ideal for everyone, especially for long periods of time. On the upside, their ear-hook design offers great stability for sports, and they are breathable and portable to bring to your workouts. Regrettably, their latency may be a bit too high for watching TV and gaming, and their microphone performance is sub-par for online multiplayer games.

18. Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Truly Wireless


The best true wireless earbuds that we’ve tested to date are the Samsung Galaxy Buds+. These very lightweight in-ears are surprisingly comfortable since they put very little pressure on the ear. Their 13.3-hour battery life is the longest we’ve ever tested on a pair of truly wireless headphones, and they look and feel quite premium and well-built.

Their default sound profile is extremely accurate and natural, making them versatile enough for all genres and content. Some people may find they lack bass when compared to most other excited or bass-heavy headphones, but you can easily adjust the way the sound via five EQ presents within their companion app, which is great.

Unfortunately, their touch-sensitive controls are a bit disappointing and if you prefer physical buttons, you may want to check out the Jabra Elite Active 75t Truly Wireless, though their battery doesn’t last nearly as long off a single charge. The Samsung also only get one additional cost from their case, but on the bright side, you can easily recharge the situation by tossing it onto any Qi-enabled wireless charger. Overall, these are among the best headphones we’ve reviewed, and are the best true cellular earbuds we’ve tested so far.

19. Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless


The best truly wireless earbuds for sound quality that we’ve tested so far are the Bose SoundSport Free. These truly wireless earbuds offer premium looks and feel very well-built, with a dense, high-grade plastic design that’s available in some eye-catching colour schemes. That said, their relatively bulky size makes them a little more prone to falling out of your ears than smaller, lighter competitors.

Their somewhat unique semi-open design provides a far more spacious listening experience than other in-ear headphones, but at the expense of doing a much poorer job of blocking out the clatter and chatter of the daily grind. Otherwise, they deliver a very well-balanced sound profile that’s versatile enough for all sorts of musical genres and audio content, although the dedicated Bose Connect app doesn’t provide any audio presets or an EQ if you’d like to fine-tune how your music sounds.

Their controls are pretty tricky to use, with very stiff physical buttons that necessitated us to take the buds out of our ears to make the inputs. At a shade under 5 hours, their continuous battery life is also disappointing, especially compared to rivals like the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Truly Wireless, which offer over 13 hrs of playback on a single charge. Still, the Bose are a good choice if you’re looking for a high-quality listening experience in a portable package.

20. Anker SoundCore Liberty Air 2 Truly Wireless


The best true wireless earbuds under $100 that we’ve tested to date are the Anker SoundCore Liberty Air 2. These in-ear options provide excellent value overall and are surprisingly feature-packed considering their low price point. They look and feel much more premium than their price would suggest, with a nice matte finish, and their case can be charged wirelessly via any Qi-enabled wireless charger.

Their out-of-the-box sound profile is fairly well-balanced but with a bit of extra kick and thump that shouldn’t be too overpowering or boomy. If you want to change the way their sound, their companion app gives you access to a graphic EQ and 20 different presets, which is excellent. Despite not having ANC, they still do a very good job at passively blocking out background noise, though they’ll execute a better work at blocking out chatty coworkers than they will with bus or plane engines.

Unfortunately, their touch-sensitive controls aren’t the easiest to use and don’t offer as much functionality as most other options. On the bright side, you can customize all the controls within their companion app, so you customize the headphones to perform the way you want them to. Overall, these are among the best wireless in-ears we’ve tested to date and provide excellent worth for the price.

21. Mpow Flame Pro Truly Wireless


The Mpow Flame Pro is a very good pair of sports truly wireless headphones. Their comfortable ear-hook design ensures a stable fit that’ll keep these headphones snug in your ears regardless of how strenuous the workout. Their nearly 12-hour single-charge battery life should easily last a full day, and you get nearly 50 hours when you count their charging case. Their bass-heavy sound profile may not be the best choice for fans of all genres, but it will help maintain you pumped up when listening to dubstep or hip-hop at the gym. Unfortunately, they do a bad job of blocking out background noise, so they might not be ideal for your daily commute or to help keep you concentrated in the office.

The Mpow Flame Professional are mediocre mixed usage headphones. They execute a bad work at blocking out history noise, and their bass-heavy and dark sound profile means they aren’t well-suited for a very wide range of genres. On the bright side, their 12-hour battery life is good, especially for a pair of truly wireless headphones. They’re also comfy and feel very stable in the ear, making them a good choice for taking to the fitness centre.

22. Sennheiser CX Sport wireless earphones


If the most important aspect of choosing the best running headphones for you is the audio quality, these wireless earbuds from Sennheiser could be a fantastic choice.
With a lively, bass-heavy presentation, and a comfortable fit, the Sennheiser CX Sport wireless earphones can really bolster your operating performance through sound quality alone.
They don’t come with a heart rate monitor, but the inclusion of ear fins and sporty neon colour scheme makes them ideal for casual workouts.
With a battery life of six hours, they’re great for your average working session, or even your daily commute – but marathon runners will want to look elsewhere.

23. Bose Quietcontrol 30 Wireless Headphones: Noise Cancelling Sports Headphone


The Bose QuietControl 30 are above-average wireless earbuds for most uses cases, that deliver a satisfying sound quality. They’re decently portable and offer more control over their noise cancellation than other Bose headphones we’ve tested so far. However, the noise-cancelling is not as strong, and although they’re stable enough to exercise with the around-the-neck design won’t be for everyone. The Bose QC30 are good headphones for some use cases. They’re comfortable, transportable and isolate well in loud environments. They’re decent commuting earphones and stable enough to take to the gym. Thanks to their low leakage, they’re ideal to use at the office or in quieter conditions like a library. They also sound good sufficient to please most listeners but they may not be the ideal headphones for pure critical listening.

24. AfterShokz Trekz Air headphones


The AfterShokz Trekz Air are unique headphones designed for outdoors sports like running, cycling and for people who want to hear everything around them. They are not your typical headphones that send music inside your ears, but they use bone conduction to send vibrations through the temples, so you feel the bass instead of hearing it, which is why they don’t measure as well as they actually sound. These are very niche headphones for outside athletes who want to be able to monitor their surroundings, but still have background music while being physically active. They’re mediocre for any other usage.
The AfterShokz Trekz Air were designed as sports headphones, and their unique bone conduction technology and openness make them a bad choice for office work and commuting. Their audio profile is actually better than what it measures, but they are not meant to be critical listening headphones. They also have too much latency for TV and gaming uses.

25. Adidas RPT-01 Wireless On-Ear Sport Headphones: Adidas Sports headphones


If you’re searching for some rugged working headphones, the Adidas RPT-01 is actually a good fit – certain, not everyone really wants to wear on-ear earphones while training, however the breathable design of the Adidas cans means that you will not overheat. The knitted headband and ear cushions could even be removed and washed after particularly sweaty sessions. Plus, with a 40-hr battery existence, they’ll final you for several marathons.As the sound quality isn’t the best possible we’ve have you ever heard, the RPT-01s are suitably loud and bassy, that is something you will want to push you during that last lap. They’re definitely the very best running headsets we’ve examined with this particular form factor.
