No matter whether you are a sports freak or a just running to keep fit, listening to music while exercising is a given. Since wired earphones tend to come in the way thanks to their tangle-prone cables, wireless is certainly the way to go.

What you should expect in this category and range:

Build: While a good number of earphones are made of hard plastic, you will also find some made of lightweight metals like aluminium.

Connectivity: Bluetooth is the major connectivity option though a rare few also support NFC.

Water/Sweat-proof: While most earphones are sweat-proof, you may get lucky to find one which you can use under a running tap. However, for something that can be submerged underwater? Time to look at a higher range.

Mic & Remote: Most earphones come with a mic and remote. With these, you can even speak while on-the-go.


Here is a list prepared with the help of our in-house experts to keep you in step with your music. In no particular order, here we go...

1. Lively And Powerful: JAYS a-Six Wireless
