SENSO ActivBuds S-250 Wireless Sports Earphones
How do you recognize poorly designed wireless Bluetooth headphones for sports from a pair that’s up to the task? Online reviews can help you with that. The SENSO ActivBuds S-250 have earned 5 stars from over 10,000 reviews on Amazon, and we can see why.

The sound quality may suffer a bit, but that’s nothing compared to the fact that you can swim with them. The headphones are powered by a new, improved…
Phaiser BHS-750 Sport Bluetooth Earbuds
The Phaiser BHS-750 Bluetooth earbuds offer a lot of the same functionality and performance as you get with portable earbuds from Bose and other premium manufacturers. The main difference between Bose and Phaiser is the price. While most Bose earbuds cost hundreds of dollars, the Phaiser BHS-750 sells for just around $40.
Available in five colors (black, purple, green, blue, and red), the Phaiser BHS-750 are not the most striking earbuds on the market. They are made out of aluminum and shaped for maximum comfort and durability—not style. When in use, the earbuds disappear in your ears, and the only part that remains somewhat visible is the silver, magnetic backplate, which hides a charging connector.
Thanks to the backplate, you can wear the earbuds around your neck like a necklace when not listening to music. And when you are listening to music, there’s no reason to worry about moisture or sweat. The Phaiser BHS-750 Bluetooth earbuds are protected by Liquipel Nano Coating, making them ideal for sweaty workouts and other demanding activities.
The earbuds are kept in place by winged earphone tips, which provide both over- and under-ear wearing options. Regardless of how you decide to…

TREBLAB X11 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
The headphones market is overflowing with hyped up products that don’t live up to the high expectations set by marketing departments. In a certain way, customers are to blame.

AcousticSheep RunPhones Wireless Headphones (Headband)
The AcousticSheep RunPhones wireless headphones are designed for runners and anyone else who likes to listen to music while exercising or playing sports. It’s hard enough for headphone manufacturers to create a pair of headphones that provides a long-term listening comfort, and it’s nearly impossible to also make the headphones stay securely in place. Usually, you either end up with headphones that hurt your ears after a while or end up on the ground every 5 minutes. That’s why the solution from AcousticSheep doesn’t look anything like traditional headphones. Instead, the headphones are hidden inside a comfortable headband. This design won the company two CES 2014 awards, Innovations in Design and Engineering Honoree awards, and we are excited to try them out.
The RunPhones are available in three sizes: large, medium, and small. Choosing the right size greatly influences how comfortable the headphones will be.

The inner side holds 5 dedicated playback control buttons, and the right earpiece also features a built-in microphone. The buttons are very easy to use and require a suitable amount of pressure to register.

PLAY X STORE Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

Anker SoundBuds AK-A3233011 Sport Earbuds
Anker has extensive experience when it comes to the design of Bluetooth sport-oriented earbuds. The company is known for their ability to deliver on their marketing claims and create products that work exceptionally well for just a fraction of what some other manufacturers like to charge.
At only 0.44 oz, the SoundBuds AK-A3233011 are 20% lighter than most other sports earbuds on the market. The lightweight makes you quickly forget that you have them in your ears. If only Anker made the cable between earbuds slightly shorter, we would be completely happy with their construction. The extra, unnecessary length makes it bounce around when running, which can become annoying rather quickly.
