Plantronics Backbeat Fit

Along those same exercise lines, if you’re not confident in your current headphones to make it through a string of sweaty workouts, the Plantronics Backbeat Fit will be a fantastic substitute. They’re light, they’re sweatproof, they’re wireless, and they have a clear, smooth sound that should help you relax as your heart rate grows.

They are unsealed, though, which has its ups and downs. On the plus side, you can hear ambient noises while you’re wearing them, so you’ll be less likely to wander into oncoming traffic. On the downside, you can hear ambient noises while you’re wearing them, so the clinking and grunting of other people at the gym may be too audible for comfort. 

If you think that’ll be a problem, the Jaybird X2 are a more traditional pair of Bluetooth earphones with a fuller, more accurate profile. Alternatively, if you just want something decent for cheap, try the tight-fitting MEE Audio M7P. Again, we have a more complete guide to workout headphones, so take a peek there if you’re curious.

Plantronics Backbeat Fit, $95.95, available at Amazon.
