Wireless earphones are the perfect audio solution for sports activities and working out at the gym. Wired earphones typically generate unwanted noise from the cable making contact during motion. This can also cause sound balance variables due to slight movements of the earbuds. A good set of wireless earphones will completely eliminate this problem and allow you to train in comfort without any loss of audio quality.

Alternatives to Wireless Earphones

Our list of the best wireless earphones do not include those that are considered ‘Neckband style.’ If you don’t mind the idea of wearing a neck unit, it’s definitely worth checking them out – Best Bluetooth Neckband Headphones.

Many have the same in-ear style buds as wireless earphones, but typically offer better features and battery life due to the additional internal space inside the neck unit. Some wireless neckband headphones can last up to 30 hours off a single charge.

  1. I think the Beats bluetooth earphones are about double the price they should be for what they are. You could almost buy 10 of those SoundPEATS Q9A earbuds for that price and the only difference would be that the bass would be unnaturally heavy on one of them……..

    • Hi Mitch
      Choosing to buy the Beats Powerbeats 2 wireless earphones over less expensive earphones like the Q9A’s is more about the brand than the actual performance, I sort of agree with you. Having beats wireless earphones is probably 40% about the audio and 60% about the fashion.

  2. Those Bragi the Dash earphones looks amazing, but I’d be absolutely petrified of losing them, a little over my budget I think 🙁

    • Hi Beth,
      I know what you mean, I’ve lost / broken more earphones than I care to remember. I’m guessing if you owned a pair of Bragi the Dash earphones, you’d probably be a lot more careful with them than you would a regular pair of wireless earphones.
