Best Sport Wireless Earphone & True Wireless Earbuds for every budget

It goes without saying that the right music can push a gym session from yay to yeehaw, which makes headphones one of your workout essentials. And when choosing headphones for your most vigorous workouts (be it the daily treadmill, bicycling or weights) sweat-proof is the way to go—you want a pair that won't short out or become super slippery when things are heating up!

These days, headphones associated with fitness or workouts are primarily wireless, meaning there aren't any wires other than the ones that conjoin the earpieces and your smartphone or Music Player. The lack of wires frees up your range of motion. We also have truly wireless buds too, that eliminate that as well. But then again, there are various limitations of true wireless, which make them irritating to use as full-time buds, just don't apply if you only run, ride or work out in them. The battery life is invariably short but it’s more than long enough for gym and running, at least for a day.

 

What you should be looking for?

Sound Quality: The sound signature of every device is typically mentioned among those small icons on the collection page. Pick the earphones that give you your desired sound signature.
Sound Signatures in a nutshell.
1. Extra Bass: Bass is pumped-up a lot. Mostly tends to overpower the other frequencies.
2. Warm & Smooth: A slight boost in the bass. Other frequencies can easily be heard.
Bright: The opposite of warm & smooth. Here, the treble is slightly boosted.
4. V-Shaped: Both the treble and bass are boosted while the mids are reduced. Balanced: No one frequency is boosted.

Compatibility: Apple, Android or both? It shouldn’t matter as much. A wireless in-ears tends to deliver universal compatibility.

Build: The design is important not only in terms of looks but also durability and usability. Features like minimal flat cables, a neckband or no-neckband fit and metal housings and accessible microphone signify good built and design.

Warranty: It is nice to feel secure about your belongings. When you are spending so much, expect a good after-sales service. Longer the warranty period, more durable the product (or service you can expect). Only original products come with warranty, so beware of fakes! All products sold on our website carry a manufacturer's warranty and you can read more about warranty here.

Sweat resistance:If you need a workout buddy, you do have a few options. Look for a device that provides IPX-rated sweat resistance as well as a good fit.

Battery life:A battery life that would last you for a day would be an ideal pick, won't it? 

 

Here, we’ve tried to create a list of the best earphones keeping all these features in mind
