If you’re ramping up your workout for the summer, it could be worth investing in a good pair of sports headphones. Comfort and ease of use are important, and a poor fit can interfere with activities. All the models featured here allow users to take calls and pause and skip songs with the touch of a button. Check out our list of some of the best sports and fitness headphones available on Amazon.


Bose SoundSport Free

The Bose SoundSport Free earbuds are among the best sports headphones available on Amazon.

The American brand’s first truly wireless headphones, the SoundSport Free earbuds are comfortable and lightweight, yet they are able to produce powerful sound. Sweat resistant with water-repellent mesh in the open ports, these headphones stay put. Each earbud weighs 15 grams and is just 3.12 cm at the widest point. Compact and practical, a multi-function button lets you pause, skip tracks, and take calls. The buds also have their own volume-optimized EQ. You’ll get five hours of continuous use on a full charge, but the included portable charging case has enough juice to fully charge the earbuds twice between uses; just 15 minutes in the case will give you an additional 45 minutes of listening time.

These earbuds have eight hours of battery life on a single charge.


Sennheiser OCX 686

An inline mic and remote on the cable allow for hands-free calls and music control. The cable is reinforced for durability and comes with a clip to keep the wire close to your body. Sennheiser also offers in-ear and ear-canal headphones with sports tips, as well as models with a neckband design.
