From pumping iron in the gym to pounding the pavements, a little audio stimulation can really help you go the extra mile. Whether you love to listen to radio, your carefully picked Spotify playlist or your favourite podcast while you get your sweat on, having the right pair of headphones can make or break your workout.
There’s nothing worse than having to fiddle with your technology when you’re halfway through a serious session. These headphones will fix the problem perfectly…
1. Jabra Sport Pace
Affordable, comfortable, with great noise isolation and sound quality, these wireless wonders will keep you powered up as you work out (though the five hour battery life may let you down if you’re doing something seriously strenuous).
2. Rio by Urbanista
This pair of waterproof wired headphones has an awesome secure, comfy fit and seems to have thought about pretty much everything, from a reflective cable which helps you stay visible at night, to a handy remote button and inbuilt mic that allows you to take calls on the go.
3. Trainer Gibson Wireless Headphones
Designed in collaboration with Usain Bolt, these LED illuminated headphones were born to run. Comfortable, secure, with fantastic sound quality, these lightweight earbuds are a worthwhile fitness investment.
4. Caeden Linea No. 1
Prefer over-ear headphones with a dose of style? These gorgeous rose gold over-ear cans are very secure, maximising stability as you move. They also do a great job of keeping chilly ears warm in winter. They could get a little sweaty in the summer though…
5. LG Tone Platinum Wireless Stereo Headset
This incredibly lightweight neckpiece feels like its barely there during use but provides amazing functionality and astonishingly good sound. It looks pretty futuristic too!
