Being at the gym, on a fitness cycle, in yoga, or on the run, you know what’s going to happen. You’re going to get massively sweaty and as they slide around, you’re going to be finagling with your earbuds trying to keep them in. This ongoing process can put a major damper on your workout vibe, completing ruining a workout if you let it.
If that’s you, you’re not alone. So many of us struggle with our earbuds in the middle of a challenging workout. In response, a lot of us have made the switch to over-the-ear headphones. Sure, in-ears are compact, stable, and arguably more breathable. Even so, nothing beats over-the-ear’s fit and the way they send an immediate message to those around that you’re in the zone.
If you’re buying over-the-ear headphones for the gym or for exercise, you’re going to want to keep a few things in mind. For example, you don’t want them too heavy or too bulky. For those who can find a comfortable pair though, you’ll often find you can get more battery life, more comfort, more controls, and more features at a decent price point than you can for something similar in an ear bud format. Also, you’re more likely to cancel out the noise around you with over-the-ear headphones.
