One of the key ingredients to any full-on, high-octane workout has to be the right music – and that means ensuring that you have a decent pair of gym headphones that not only provide the required soundtrack, but also don’t unnecessarily interfere with your workout or become a distraction in any way.
That’s why we’re rounding up a selection of the best headphones that you can buy for the gym….check out our personal recommendations below:
Optoma NuForce BE Sport3
These are superb for audi quality and get on our list as they are comfortable, very lightweight and have a battery life of up to 10 hours.
Monster iSport Victory
These are built for pure comfort in the gym as well as sound quality – they fit amazingly well due to their sleek design and the fact they come with a range of tips and wings as standard so you can tailor them to your exact fit.
Bose SoundSport Pulse
These make our list for pure innovation – they are the first headphones which come with a built in heart rate monitor, which means they simply had to be included due to their design that is tailored specifically towards the health and fitness market.
Gibson Trainer Ti100
These headphones also contain some innovation that caught our eye as health and fitness professionals – they have a built in flashing light on the back of the headphones designed for night running and fitness safety. They also come with a wide range of different tips so that they can be optimised for comfort for the gym.
These headphones simply have to be considered as Bose are the official supplier of headsets to coaches in the NFL, meaning they seriously know a thing or two about making headphones for the sports and health and fitness market.
So perhaps not surprising there’s some great innovation here aimed squarely at health and fitness enthusiasts – these headphones contain hydrophobic cloth that keeps sweat out whilst you are working out, and they come with an in-line mic and an extension cable for versatility in the gym. All in all these are an excellent contender which should always be on your shortlist when you are selecting a pair of headphones for use in the gym.
