So you are searching for the best running, hiking, cycling, or gym sports headphones?
But you don't want them to fall off your head while you are in the middle of your runs, or while lifting in the gym or cycling. You want them to have a long battery life, to sound crystal clear, and to stick to your ears like glue!
After a lot of research, I found what works best for sports.
Whether you like running, swimming, hiking, going to the gym, and anything really you want to hear your music to get that extra 5% out of your body, and that other extra 5% that comes with good sounding sporty headphones.
You don't want something that will fall out in your most intense exercise do you?
Okay so now let us go over the basics of the best sports headphones.
What sports headphone type will be good for you?
For sports, I will mainly be focusing on wireless headphones because who wants wires interfering with their exercise, we all know what it is like to wear wired headphones that always fall out of your ears at the worst time possible.
Prefer to watch a video?
Okay, so first of all In-ear headphones.
In-ear headphones are spread into three parts.
- In-ear headphones with a behind the ear wing for support, and to help keep it stable and secure.
Behind the ear Support
2. Or, you can have In-ear ones that, support and stay stable with a little flap that stays in your ear.
In-ear Wings support
To be honest, I've tried both types and they are both very secure and stable.
If you want to do any serious exercise, like playing tennis, yoga or lifting weights, you need your workout headphones to stay put. They have to stick to your ears like glue to withstand the strong forces during a workout.
And they do. They do their job properly. They will rarely if ever fall out. They are also usually you're cheapest option.
But if you are doing very rigorous exercise or activities, I recommend you stick with the first ones so they don't fly out your ears, as they are clipped behind your ears.
I used to think that the ear-phones with in-ear wings would be really bad, and won't stay in your ears, but I was wrong the wing they provide is really good at securing the earbuds into your ears.
3. The third type of in-ear headphones you could go for is the Truly wireless choice.
These have no wires ( Truly wireless )
The truly wireless type, are typically the best choice as they don't have a wire flying around that will try to yank the ear-buds out of your ears. Other than that they are Extra comfortable, as they don't have any wires trying to drag your ears down.
What's cool with these is usually you tend to forget you are even wearing them. And if you are doing vigorous exercise and always changing directions these are an amazing choice, as they are the least likely to fall out of your head.
If you are the type that is always worried you will drop them, A cool life hack with these is you can always wear a beanie cap over them. Also, they are also usually waterproof so even if you drop them in a puddle while cycling or running they should be fine.
The next choice is Over-ear or On-ear Headphones
Okay so over-ear headphones and on-ear headphones are not made for sport.
They are made for listening to music at home or stationary, or while walking, not while doing sports!
They are always going to fall off your head or come in your way while doing sports, so I do not recommend them.
So basically I would recommend you stay away from these, as they are bulky, and will always annoy you. If you want something to warm your ears just get in-ear headphones and stick a beanie on your head.
The only exception to this is the HALO NEUROSPORT HEADPHONES 2.0, these headphones are for any athlete who is really serious, and wants to become exceptional in his sport. They use Neuro priming ( they help your brain dive into a state of super-learning using electronic brain stimulation ) and they aren't fake hype, they are proven to work by scientific studies I definitely recommend you check them out.
Okay, now that we have the basics in the bag, I will tell you how I chose the best sports headphones on the list.
I chose them based on tons of reviews, to make sure I don't give you a bad or biased opinion, and to make sure they are well-tested and have no problems. I put all my effort to find you the best, sounds, comfort, battery life, issueless headphones for your sport.
My promise to you is that you won't regret buying any of these headphones.

It produces a nice clear sound that can be easily heard over external noises although to call them noise cancelling would be a bit extreme perhaps but if you are in the market for truly noise-canceling earphones, you should know that at this price point you won't find any that properly do the job.
Compared to other wireless earphones in the past, they definitely feel more comfortable and stay in well, even when you try to shake them loose. So they are good for running, cycling, jogging or the gym.

No wires meaning you won't ever catch the wire on anything and throw your earbuds off your head, and it also means that they won't weigh on your ears and drag them down. Amazing sports headphones
Use these for anything, airplane rides, walking around in town, the train however, they are well designed for sports which are their main purpose. They are waterproof so don't worry about ruining them with your sweat. They will be your favorite workout companion.
They are the best looking in this category, the best sounding, and the most convenient. they fit in your ear well and won't fall out, as they are lightweight and are secure.

If you are an audiophile, and you want the best music quality possible, these are your best deal as they are wired, so they invested their technology in the sound rather than the batteries and Bluetooth.
The only downsides with these are that they are wired and don't have amazing noise-isolation.
