Music and workouts go hand in hand. Besides just helping beat boredom, it’s scientifically proven that listening to music helps athletes distract themselves from “bodily awareness” - any pain or stress the body is going through during the workout. So there’s nothing quite like a steady, pumping beat to get you to complete your nth burpie or that 21K run.

That’s possibly why fitness enthusiasts spend a lot of time (and money) on earphones. If you’re out and about, seeking for a pair of earphones to invest in for your workouts, here’s a list of earphones that fit the bill. Apart from providing you with sick beats, they also fit well and will stay put during the most rigorous of workouts.

JABRA Sport Coach In-the-Ear Headset Yellow

The JABRA Sport Coach has a sporty design and is very well suited for athletic uses. The Bluetooth headset features winged tips which provide a superb fit and prevent sweat from entering your ears during a workout. These earphones also feature Dolby-tuning and in-ear audio coaching that helps you keep a track of distance covered, average pace, achievements and more without having to use your phone.

Urbanears Stadion Bluetooth Earphone with Mic

The Urbanears Stadion earphones stand out thanks to their distinct coiled design that make them almost ‘weightless’. The Stadion is kept steady in-ear with the help of ear-hooks and interchangeable tip moulds. These earphones let you hear the world around you even while listening to music, so you can run around the streets without putting yourself in any kind of danger.

Sennheiser MX 686G Sports In-the-Ear Headphones

The Sennheiser MX 686G has everything you need from a sports earphone - precise fit, excellent sound quality and a tangle-free cord. These earphones deliberately leak some audio so that you can stay aware of your soundings while cycling or running outdoors.

Sony MDR-XB50BS Bluetooth Earphone

Sporty earphones? Great bass? Splash resistance? Check. The Sony MDR-XB50BS is the perfect set of earphones if you want to listen to bass-thumping music for long durations as they can play music for at least 8-9 hours on a single charge. Apart from its great bass output mentioned above, the earphones have commendable treble and noise cancellation too.

JBL Endurance DIVE Waterproof Wireless Earphones with Built-In Mp3 Player

For those who are looking to pep up their swims, you need not to look anywhere else. The JBL Endurance Dive is the perfect piece of audio that you need to listen to music underwater! Since Bluetooth doesn’t work underwater, these headphones come with a 1GB microSD card slot which should be good to store about 200-220 songs. It features great audio quality and allows for complete immersion (because they’re waterproof) which gives audio great depth.
