Earbuds are getting better and better in terms of quality, which means you don't have to sport gigantic headphones on your commute to and from work. With so many options on the market, finding a good pair that isn't a total ripoff is easier said than done. Some models have poor connectivity, while others are bulky and uncomfortable. But if this were an episode of the Bachelorette, the 1MORE iBFree Sport Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones would get the final rose. Sleek, modern style is one thing, but it's what 1MORE's pair is like on the inside that counts.
Truly wireless headphones keep you from tripping over cables while you're jamming to your workout playlist. There are lots of options out there, but if you're looking for top-of-the-line wireless earbuds designed for life in motion, you can't get much better than Bose's SoundSport Free sport headphones, our favorite true wireless earbuds for exercising. And you're in luck – they're on sale at Amazon for $179.10, the lowest we've seen them and down $70 from their normal listing of $249. We gave these earbuds 4.5 stars out of 5 for their reliable Bluetooth connectivity, great audio quality, and solid battery life – 5 hours on a full charge and 10 more hours with the included charging case. Bose's buds put the wearer in charge of their listening experience with removable tips of different sizes and user-friendly controls.
Save $72: As of Dec. 16, the Sony WF-SP800N wireless noise canceling headphones are on sale for $128 on Amazon. Getting through a workout isn't always the easiest task (especially when you'd rather be sitting on the couch having a Christmas movie marathon), but having a great pair of headphones by your side can help. Just make sure that they won't fall out by getting a pair that's specifically designed for sports. The Sony WF-SP800N wireless noise canceling headphones stay put thanks to IP55 sweat and splash resistance. They also offer noise cancellation and extra bass so you can hear more of what you actually want to hear.
While many over-the-ear headphones offer uncompromising audio, even the most rigid audiophiles must consider fit, battery life, water resistance and durability if they're going for a run. Luckily, some in-ear headphones don't compromise much on quality. The team at SpecOut compiled a list of the best headphones for running. Every pair is in-ear style, fits into the "sport" category and features a built-in volume remote. We've included a mix of traditional and wireless headphones, the latter of which are beginning to break into the market as price-competitive alternatives.
