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.
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.
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, sobeware of fakes! All products sold on our website carry a manufacturer's warranty and you can read more about warrantyhere.
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.
A battery life that would last you for a day would be an ideal pick, won't it?

"The RHA MA750 Wireless is perfect for those who want audiophile sound in their wireless in-ears, and a lot more features than the T20 Wireless!"

The RHA’s MA750 Wireless are our absolute favorites. They’re a rare middle ground for those of us who want to exercise without compromising on sound. The aptX and AAC compatibility pairs well with a smart, aerophonic design and well-tuned drivers, providing an impressive package. A sturdy build quality and a 3-year manufacturer warranty make it an insane package at the price point.
Designed in Scotland, The RHA MA750 Wireless is beautifully built with its stainless steel housing and enclosed design. It looks uber premium and sounds all the more amazing.
The V-MODA BassFit is the Jaybird alternative you've been waiting for. The V-MODA BassFit Wireless are very good sports headphones with a great sound. On the other hand, they have a unique design with fins and ear-hooks for great stability during physical activity. Their battery life will also last you for a full workday. They have lower latency than average Bluetooth headphones.
The JAYS m-SIX is an absolute joy to wear with minimal design, light weight as well as smart styling. No matter how long your day is, the JAYS m-SIX is geared to keep you company and cheer you up with its signature JAYS sound. Its 5-hour battery life lasting long enough for those morning walks.
The Sony WI-SP600N is decently versatile wired in-ear. Audio purists might not like this sound signature, but those seeking thump in their music should love these. EDM & Trance fans should check this out! What's more, they also block enough noise to be suitable for commuting and they will easily fit into your pockets. It is a bound to create a party in your head as it more suited for Party, House, and Electronic music.
