BEST FOR FEATHERLIGHT EARBUDS – OPPO Enco X, WAS £169, NOW £89.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget

These are the lightest earbuds we’ve tested in this round up, and they are a joy to use. Just like the AirPods Pro, they are sure to stay in on a run and slip in effortlessly. The noise cancellation is high end without any glitches, but it’s worth noting there was a slight bit of wind feedback in this mode as well as the ambient mode. In terms of sound quality, the notes are crisp and some of the most dynamic we’ve heard. It also helps if you have an Oppo/Android phone as you can use the HeyMelody app to update the earbuds firmware along with a few other features. With the controls, you use the stem itself as a volume slider which is very sophisticated even if a little hard to do on a run; and the only way you can pause a track is by taking out the earbuds which is a little frustrating.

Top tip: Update the firmware using the HeyMelody app for Android. Or if you have an iPhone, ask a friend for a favour.

Pros: High quality ANC, featherlight weight, affordable

Cons: No pause function by default, wind feedback

Features:

App availability: Yes (Oppo/Android devices only)

Battery: [with ANC on] Up to 4 hours listening time, with an extra 16 hours from the case (20 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C and wireless charging

Sweat and Water resistant: IP54

Extra bud tips: Included – S/M/L

Ratings:

Style: 9/10

Sound: 8.5/10

Durability, fit and controls: 9.5/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: This is an affordable steal that delivers on noise cancellation and sound quality without the ear fatigue. A pair of earbuds that you won’t be disappointed with.

BEST FOR STYLE – X by Kygo Xellence true wireless earbuds, WAS £179, NOW £109.56

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 X by Kygo

These earbuds are by far the coolest looking earbuds around and have an incredible sound to kick. They feature an illuminated X on either side so you’ll be seen on your workout and they feature ‘Digital hybrid Noise-Cancellation’ which is similar to Active Noise Cancellation, but not quite matching that level of quality and noise reduction. But the sound quality is exceptional and is made just that bit better thanks to a hearing test completed in the X by Kygo app. Fit isn’t great and they do require a bit of adjusting to get them in along with the odd push during a HIIT workout just to make sure they don’t fall out. But the quality of this product at this price point is one to consider.

Top tip: Toggle the bass boost feature in-app if you want a bit more energy in your workout.

Pros: Unrivalled sound quality, noise cancellation, stylish, will take on heavy rain.

Cons: The fit and button controls.

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 10 hours listening time, with an extra 20 hours from the case (30 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes, although you do get the occasional wind feedback

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes – Digital hybrid ANC

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C. Works with Bluetooth devices.

Sweat and Water resistant: Yes – IPX5

Extra bud tips: Included – XS/S/M/L/XL gel tips

Ease of controls: A long 3-second press to skip through tracks is not the easiest but they do come with volume control in a single tap which we found more useful than expected.

Ratings:

Style: 10/10

Sound: 9.5/10

Durability, fit and controls: 6/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: Good looking and great all-round sound quality and noise cancellation put these earbuds near the top of our list. They do fall a little short in terms of fitting comfortably without moving, but with everything else considered, these are not a bad buy for your next workout.

BEST FOR ANDROID PHONES – Huawei Freebuds Pro, In-Ear True Wireless Earbuds, WAS £169.99, NOW £87.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Huawei

It’s hard not to see the similarities between these and the Apple AirPods Pro, but if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative without compromise then these may be worth a shot. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to use these with the Huawei AI Life app (Android only – no option to add this version of earbuds for now) as we were hoping there was a firmware update to rectify the random glitching in ANC mode and consistent left and right earbud disconnections we experienced. It only seemed to do this in quiet environments and once on a run, there were no problems and the sound was great straight from the box with a good amount of bass. The pinching controls were hard to pinpoint at first, but once you know where to pinch, they work fairly easily. Sliding on the stem for the volume is very slick and is the only device in this line up to do this. It’s also worth noting that these are not advertised as waterproof or sweatproof, but they do stay in the ear very well and felt very comfortable. The hear-through mode was ok, but it’s not the best in class with poor wind feedback on a run.

Top tip: Pinch nearer the bottom of the stem to access the play/next controls.

Pros: Sliding volume control, ANC and fit

Cons: Connectivity is an issue, hard to get out of the case, couldn’t find the earbuds through the app, audio glitches in Smart Noise cancellation, no IP rating.

Features:

App availability: Yes (Android only for now)

Battery: Up to 7 hours listening time, with an extra 23 hours from the case (30 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes, although you do get wind feedback

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes – Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C. Also offers wireless charging with the case – just make sure the logo is facing upwards.

Sweat and Water resistant: No

Extra bud tips: Included – S/M/L

Ease of controls: Easy to miss the mark with the controls, but over time you know where to pinch and the volume controls are so satisfying.

Ratings:

Style: 7/10

Sound: 7/10

Durability, fit and controls: 8.5/10

Connectivity: 3/10

Summary: The connectivity was the only real issue here, as apart from that, these earbuds offer great sound, fit and ANC. But if you don’t have an Android smartphone to update the firmware as and when, perhaps hold out on this one.

BEST FOR HANDSFREE – Sony WF-1000XM4 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones, WAS £249.99, NOW £199.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Sony2

As you’d expect from Sony, the sound quality from these earbuds is incredible. Clear, crisp and featuring lots of bass, which you can tweak in app if need be. The design is unique and sophisticated, plus the circular extruding detail acts as a grip allowing you to adjust the position of the earbuds without accidentally hitting the touch controls. Noise cancellation works very well, but only once you wiggle the earbuds into the right position which can be annoying. Also they do unfortunately need to be pushed in a little more than most, which can get uncomfortable after a few hours. However, this does mean that there is no chance of these falling out during a work out and run which is a big plus.

Top tip: If your hands are full and you can’t switch transparency modes, these earbuds can automatically switch to ambient mode and pause as and when you speak, so you can hear what you are saying; switch this feature on and off in the app.

Pros: Lightweight case, earbud aesthetic, automatic ambient mode when talking

Cons: The need to be pushed in further than competitiors

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 8 hours listening time, with an extra 16 hours from the case (24 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included ‘Noise Isolation Earbud Tips’ in S/M/L

Ease of controls: Controls are very quick and responsive. It is a shame you can’t have the volume included in the controls on top of the other playback functions. But still you can add this in app if need be.

Ratings:

Style: 9/10

Sound: 9.5/10

Durability, fit and controls: 8/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: Overall, you really do get what you pay for here and it feels like a very well refined product. Just a few niggles here and there, but so minor you won’t be disappointed.

BEST FOR AFFORDABLE SAMSUNG – Samsung Galaxy Buds2, WAS £139, NOW £99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Samsung3

For affordable earbuds with strong bass and noise cancelling, look no further than the latest from Samsung. The Buds2 earbuds come in a gorgeous lacquer, like two petits bonbons and sit in the ears very well; so much so that when we tried to adjust the fit, they actually needed no adjustment whatsoever. They are also lightweight and will not move at all during a workout. Aside from the bass, the dynamic range was unique and there was a good amount of depth. The controls were responsive to pause, but we couldn’t get the double tap to skip a track which was a concern.

Top tip: Make the most of the noise cancelling when in the gym, as you’ll have a much more motivating workout session.

Pros: Gorgeous to look at, lightweight, great value premium sound

Cons: Controls, waterproof rating is a little low

Features:

App availability: Yes (currently Android only)

Battery: Up to 5 hours listening time, with an extra 15 hours from the case (20 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX2

Extra bud tips: Included S/M/L

Ease of controls: Responsive controls aside from the skipping of tracks problem.

Ratings:

Style: 9.5/10

Sound: 9/10

Durability, fit and controls: 7/10

Connectivity: 8/10

Summary: We have to say across the market, these are an exciting pair of earbuds that we’ve tested. A true beauty of a package that, given its features and if you can’t afford the Pro version, come in at a very reasonable price.

BEST ALL-ROUNDER – Jabra Elite 85t, WAS £219.99, NOW £149.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Jabra

If you can’t take the music at the gym any longer, then these ANC earbuds may just do the trick. They feature Advanced Active Noise Cancellation (one of the best ANC’s we’ve tested here), and have an IPX4 rating so they’ll take on your session easily. They do feel a little loose in your ear and do extrude a little more than their predecessor (the Jabra 75t’s), but they do stay put making their exceptional sound quality worth the price tag. We did notice that the auto pause feature only pauses on taking one earbud out, not both at the same time; we only realised this after a full Lizzo Super Deluxe album had passed. We also say these are best for the gym as there was a little wind feedback on a run even in the ANC mode which was a little disappointing. You also can’t share an earbud with a friend (not Covid secure anyway…) but you wouldn’t want to with the incredible sound quality that these Jabra’s offer.

Top tip: Customise the controls in app so you can decide how many presses it takes to switch between tracks.

Pros: Sound quality, ANC

Cons: Wind-feedback on a run, a little loose fit, glitchy auto-pause

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 5.5 hours listening time, with an extra 19.5 hours from the case (25 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes, one of the best

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C and wireless charging

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included – S/M/L oval silicon eargels

Ease of controls: Very easy, and customisable in app

Ratings:

Style: 7/10

Sound: 10/10

Durability, fit and controls: 6/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: A premium product that you’d expect no less from Jabra. A few problems here and there that hopefully an update can fix, as the sound on here is punchy and sure to fire you up to achieve your best.

BEST BUDGET NOISE CANCELLING – JBL Live Pro+ TWS, WAS £169.99, NOW £99.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 JBL 3

There’s no denying that a lot of these earbuds have the same stem design. But this is for good reason, as they are the easiest to put in and take out without any fiddly adjustments. These JBL Live Pro+ TWS wireless earbuds are one to champion all of these stem designs. These JBL earbuds are slightly flatter than some competitors which makes for a wonderfully flush design, and the sound is reasonably dynamic at this price point. You can wirelessly charge the compact case and the earbuds feature a decent adaptive noise cancellation. We did find we needed to wiggle the earbuds a little in order to fully appreciate the noise cancellation and any extra bass we added from downloading the app. But after a change of tip, the listening experience was perfect, so we highly recommend you test the different earbud tips. They also did stay put at the gym, and on a run there was no wind feedback using noise cancellation.

Top tip: There’s a slightly deeper M + L size earbud tip that is worth trying for a more secure and sealed fit.

Pros: Change the sound in app, streamline look

Cons: No volume control on the earbuds and the controls are a little sluggish

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 7 hours listening time, with an extra 21 hours from the case (28 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included S/M/L + 2 deeper earbuds in M/L

Ease of controls: Controls are a little sluggish but responsive none the less. The right earbud controls the audio and the left controls the noise cancellation and ambient modes.

Ratings:

Style: 9/10

Sound: 8.5/10

Durability, fit and controls: 8/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: A great all-rounder, it’s actually really hard to find any faults with these JBL earbuds.

BEST FOR HYGIENE – LG TONE Free Wireless Earbuds (FN7), WAS £149, NOW £88

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 LG

After being a big fan of LG’s previous wireless earbuds (still at a very affordable price point here), we were pretty excited when it came to testing the FN7’s, now with added Active Noise Cancelling. Annoyingly with this added feature, it means they are ever so slightly bigger and they do stick out a bit more than the previous model. They do however manage to stay in well on a run, and after downloading the app and altering the EQ, the sound quality was a great experience. These are also one of the only earbuds on the market that uses UV to kill 99.9% of Bacteria on the tips, which nowadays (especially when working out) is a valued bonus.

Top tip: Download the app to customise the sound.

Pros: UV tech, ANC, price point

Cons: Sticking out

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 7 hours listening time, with an extra 14 hours from the case (21 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included S/M/L

Ease of controls: Easy double tap for volume up and down, and generally very responsive.

Ratings:

Style: 5/10

Sound: 7/10

Durability, fit and controls: 7/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: LG are in the game for the best wireless earbuds around, with decent ANC and a stable connection at this price point. Not the most stylish or life changing in terms of sound, but they are worth considering for your next gym session.

BEST BUDGET ALL-ROUNDER – Melomania Touch, WAS £129.95, NOW £79.95

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Melomania Touch

After a few technical difficulties to begin with (we needed to reset them in order to connect both buds), these earbuds fitted very snuggly with their wingtips, stayed in very well when on a run and looked really stylish and neat. They do a very good job of softening out any ambient noise given the price of these, and even though there was a lot of wind feedback in transparency mode (ambient aware) it’s always handy to have if you need to hear the cashier at Waitrose. The touch controls are responsive and easy to use when working out. Sadly there’s no auto-pause, meaning you’ll need to pause it yourself when you’ve finished your workout. Besides this, the app works very well, featuring great control of the EQ, even though we’d like a little more bass. Having said that, we found the sound quality very motivating, so much so that we felt like the earbuds actually helped us to perform better…

Top tip: A unique app feature is that you can turn on and off each and every control the earbuds have. So if you don’t want voice assistance as an option, you can remove it.

Pros: Solid design, perfect fit, great sound

Cons: No auto pause, poor transparency mode

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 9 hours listening time, with an extra 41 hours from the case (50 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient/Transparency mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: No

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4, including the case, which is rare

Extra bud tips: Included S/M/L with ‘fins’ (we recommend you stick with these) plus S/M/L Silicone tips

Ease of controls: Very easy to tap the earbuds on a run. Also features volume control which is always a plus

Ratings:

Style: 10/10

Sound: 8/10

Durability, fit and controls: 9/10

Connectivity: 7/10

Summary: These are a solid pair of earbuds that will see you through and through. They look fantastic and you can tell that they have been built to last. So if you’re after a no-frills set of earbuds that will take on any workout, then these will do the job very easily.

BEST FOR SENNHEISER FANS – Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless, £129.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Sennheiser

These are the lightest pair of earbuds and case combined of that we’ve tested in this round-up. For something so light, there’s a decent amount of bass, and because of the size and design, it was very easy to adjust the earbuds position if they moved slightly which also meant we didn’t accidentally hit any touch points on the earbuds. The active noise cancellation is fantastic, and in transparency mode where you can hear your surroundings, some earbuds reduce how much you can hear when it’s windy, but these don’t, meaning you’ll hear more wind but in return you’ll continue to hear what’s going on around you which is a big plus in terms of safety. These earbuds are a lot cheaper than the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 2 earbuds we’ve tested, and for us a massive improvement in terms of sound and comfort. Overall, we are pleasantly surprised by this new offering from Sennheiser.

Top tip: Remember to rotate the earbuds ever-so slightly anti clockwise when you put them in, as you may find a better fit which will give you better bass.

Pros: Price for noise cancelling, sound, lightweight

Cons: Slightly too big

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 8 hours listening time, with an extra 16 hours from the case (24 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C (no wireless charging case)

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included S/M/L

Ease of controls: The controls are very responsive and they do exactly what you want and are customisable in app.

Ratings:

Style: 7/10

Sound: 9/10

Durability, fit and controls: 8/10

Connectivity: 8/10

Summary: A robust yet lightweight pair of earbuds that live up to Sennheiser’s audio reputation. A joy to use, and come in at a very affordable price.

BEST VALUE – Redmi Buds 3 Pro, £69.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget

Trying to find an affordable set of wireless earbuds with amazing sound and a solid build are a little hard to find in such a crowded market. So, when we tested these Redmi Buds 3 Pro, after looking at the price point, we think these are a steal. A glassy pearlescent gem sits on the end of the buds for a unique finish, but they don’t stick out and are sure to stay in on a run. There’s no single tap meaning there’s no accidental track pauses if you adjust the fit. There was no wind feedback on our run which was a big plus and the noise cancellation was very reasonable for what you’re paying.

Top tip: Be careful which way you put the earbuds back in the case, as we found it easy to get wrong.

Pros: Wireless charging, effective noise cancelling, solid build

Cons: No app

Features:

App availability: No

Battery: Up to 6 hours listening time, with an extra 22 hours from the case (28 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included S/M/L

Ease of controls: Having no single tap removes any accidental hits and the controls are responsive and easy to work with when exercising.

Ratings:

Style: 8/10

Sound: 7/10

Durability, fit and controls: 8/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: A great value set of earbuds, perfect for someone who doesn’t want to compromise on quality.

BEST FOR LUXURY – Master & Dynamic MW08 Sport Wireless Earphones, £329

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 MD

After testing out the gorgeous ceramic plated MW08 earbuds, Master & Dynamic now bring us a sport version of these luxury premium earbuds. These are at the luxe end of earbuds and the price tag is high, but for some very good reasons. The sound is rich, bass is present but not overwhelming and the noise cancelling is top end. The sport version comes with extra foam tips, which we highly recommend using as they will keep them in when working out. The app doesn’t come with an EQ setting which is a shame, but you won’t miss it. The case is also splash-proof which is rare for an earbuds case.

Top tip: If using the foam tips, do squish the tips before putting the earbuds in, as this will create a perfect seal and give you the best earbud experience possible.

Pros: Incredible sound, waterproof case

Cons: No EQ in app

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 12 hours listening time, with an extra 30 hours from the case (42 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX5

Extra bud tips: Included S/M/L plus M/L foam tips

Ease of controls: Incredibly easy with dedicated up and down volume buttons on the left earbud. No touch controls mean you can adjust the fit without accidently skipping a track.

Ratings:

Style: 9.5/10

Sound: 9/10

Durability, fit and controls: 9/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: A luxe compact sports option that has all the tech of the best high-end over-ear headphones. With great sound and reliability in noisy environments, this won’t disappoint.

BEST FOR SAMSUNG – Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, £199

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Samsung

From the moment we tested these earbuds, we fell in love with them. The sound quality is high grade, crystal clear and packs a solid punch against other earbuds. There is the Galaxy Wearable’s app for Android users to tweak the EQ, but unfortunately this is not existent for Apple which might be a problem; but the sound is so great you won’t need an app. The ANC and ambient mode’s are good but just short of incredible. Like the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, these buds are also a little fiddly when adjusting the fit as you end up hitting the touch controls a couple of times, but they don’t move at all on a run and will take on any sweat or rain with its IPX7 waterproof rating. All in all, we can safely say that these are the best Samsung earbuds yet, and are an incredible equivalent to the Apple AirPod Pro’s.

Top tip: When you are first getting to grips with these, temporarily block the touch controls in the Samsung Wearable’s app so that you can find the best fit in your ear without tapping on the controls every 2 seconds.

Pros: Premium sound quality, small case

Cons: Touch control sensitivity

Features:

App availability: Yes (Android/Samsung only)

Battery: Up to 5 hours listening time, with an extra 13 hours from the case (18 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX7

Extra bud tips: Included S/M/L

Ease of controls: A little sensitive as mentioned, but responsive and easy to use when working out.

Ratings:

Style: 8/10

Sound: 9.5/10

Durability, fit and controls: 7/10

Connectivity: 8/10

Summary: These earbuds really step up to the mark, and just like the name, you’ll definitely notice that these are a Pro product.

BEST FOR NOISE-CANCELLING – Panasonic S500W true wireless earbuds, £99.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2021 Panasonic

Out of the box, the sound on these Panasonic’s was fantastic. Plus the accompanying app allowed us to adjust the EQ, and the Noise Cancellation is probably one of the best we’ve tested. The compromise to having great sound however, means the size of these earbuds do stick out a lot more than the competition. This also meant they were more likely to fall out because of the weight balance, and after testing a few tip sizes, we still had problems with these earbuds staying put. However after 10 minutes on our run, they did seem to stay in, but we think these earbuds are probably best for a static bike ride. Aside from this, the ambient sound control was incredibly good, which is great if you really want to be aware of what is going on around you. Plus it’s worth mentioning specifically the Noise cancelling again, as it matches the level of the Apple AirPods Pro, yet it’s over half the price, so it’s definitely one to consider…

Top tip: Make sure you try out all the earbud tip sizes to find the best fit for you.

Pros: Excellent Noise Cancelling, sound quality.

Cons: Not a secure fit, not very stylish

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 6.5 hours listening time, with an extra 13 hours from the case (19.5 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4

Extra bud tips: Plenty included – XS/S/M/L/XL

Ease of controls: There’s no volume control, but the touch sensors are not too sensitive when adjusting the fit and the controls respond well

Ratings:

Style: 2/10

Sound: 9.5/10

Durability, fit and controls: 5/10

Connectivity: 7/10

Summary: Sadly not the best earbuds for runners, but if you won’t be doing much consistent head bopping to music at the gym or outside, then these will reward you with incredible sounds and high-end Noise Cancelling usually only seen at the very top.

BEST FOR APPLE – Apple AirPods Pro, £219

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Apple

When it comes to Apple, you expect a premium product when you pay this much for a pair of earbuds. Good news, then: they definitely deliver. The sound could be slightly punchier and an app would be welcome, but they fitted so naturally into our ears that we found ourselves picking them up again and again. As these earbuds were released in November 2019, they have the latest tech, including Active Noise Cancelling meaning you can get a bit of peace on your commute without the need for large headphones. They also come in a very compact case considering the generous battery life, so if needed you can even take the case along on a run. The controls are a little fiddly but the pros outweigh the cons here.

Top tip: Pop a clean tip on, and you can share one earbud with a friend. Or if you have two sets of earbuds, you can pair to one device to listen together.

Pros: Impressive Active Noise Cancelling. Will go into any ear annoyingly easily, and they won’t fall out.

Cons: No volume control.

Features:

App availability: None

Battery: Up to 4.5 hours listening time, with an extra 24 hours from the case (28.5 hours in total). Also offers fast charging.

Hear-through: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes, the best in class. Plus they handle the wind well on a run.

Charging port and Connectivity: Lightning connector which is ok if you have an iPhone. Not so much for Android. Works with Bluetooth devices. Rarely cuts out. Also offers Wireless charging.

Sweat and Water resistant: Yes – IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included – S/M/L

Ease of controls: Tricky when running – you almost have to rest your hand on your cheek slightly to pinch the tip, but other than that they are responsive.

Ratings:

Style: 10/10

Sound: 8/10

Durability, fit and controls: 8/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: Flawless fit straight out of the box, with great sound and compact size, make these earbuds a tough competition to beat.

BEST FOR INTENSE SPORTS – JBL Reflect Mini NC, WAS £129.99, NOW £79.99

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 JBL

Like many other earbuds, these JBL’s really pack a punch when it comes to the sound; especially with the bass. But what’s more is that this has the most customisable EQ settings in app that we’ve seen. On the other hand, don’t buy these earbuds expecting incredible ANC or even Ambient Aware mode, as changing between these modes was sadly almost unrecognisable (check out JBL’s other offering reviewed here too). Saying that, the fit is very snug with included wing tips (albeit with a little adjusting at first) and the waterproof rating of IPX7 means they can be submerged in 1m of water for up to 30 minutes, so they are incredible durable.

Top tip: When adjusting the EQ levels in app, give it a second to adjust as there is a little delay.

Pros: Incredible sound, customisable app

Cons: Questionable ambient mode and noise cancelling

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to 7 hours listening time, with an extra 14 hours from the case (21 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: Yes

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C.

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX7

Extra bud tips: Included – S/M/L buds and wing tip buds

Ease of controls: They didn’t seem to acknowledge the first tap on taking them straight from the case, but they do pick up the proceeding gestures.

Ratings:

Style: 8/10

Sound: 9.5/10

Durability, fit and controls: 7/10

Connectivity: 10/10

Summary: Incredible sound and a secure fit, JBL is yet to let us down in the true wireless earbud area. If you’re after a durable set of earbuds to enhance your work out massively without breaking the bank, then look no further…

BEST FOR MULTI-TASKING – Google Pixel Buds, £179

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia BEST FOR MULTI-TASKING – Google Pixel Buds, £179

It’s a cliché to roll out the line, ‘Is there nothing they can’t do’, but all we’re saying is that these headphones come with the full Google Assistant experience, meaning you can text, get directions, change playlists all with your voice, sure but also they can do in-ear translations from other languages…

If you’re more likely to be painfully jogging round some wet streets than away on a foreign sojourn, the buds have everything you’d expect and need for great exercising – 12mm dynamic speaker drivers, adaptive sound capabilities to adjust as you move between noisy and quiet environments (or your panting gets louder) and they’re water and sweat-resistant.

Built-in sensors and microphones focus on your voice so you can make phone calls clearly –we genuinely tried it on our Nan and she didn’t complain about not being able to hear us as we walked through a busy street, which is the gold standard tbh.

The fit is super comfy too – google say they scanned thousands of ears to make them. Which is a good job, because you could use them throughout the day for various tasks – the five-hour battery (chargeable up to 24hrs with the case) would allow it too.

Top tip: On a run, double tap to flick to the next song on our playlist – and stroke to turn the sound up when your struggling.

Pros: Useful in all elements of life and fit and battery mean you could really use them all day.

Cons: No ANC, you don’t get all the features on non-Android phones.

Features:

App availability: Yes

Battery: Up to five hours listening and 2.5 hours talking – up to 24 hours listening and 12 talking

Hear-through/Ambient mode: They have similar ‘Adaptive Sound’ mode.

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C and Bluetooth

Sweat and Water resistant: Yes – IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included – S/M/L

Ease of controls: Responsive and easy even when scrambling around doing 10 other things, once you get used to them.

Ratings:

Style: 10/10

Sound: 9/10

Durability, fit and controls: 8/10

Connectivity: 10/10

Summary: Look great, work great, sound great and a real competitor in the market if you have an Android phone, or even better a Pixel phone.

BEST FOR THE BUDGET – Cambridge Audio Melomania 1, £89.95

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Melomania

After a change of earbud tips, and a push into the ears, we were surprised at how well these earbuds isolated external sounds. Now this can be a good thing, but there is no hear-through option, so you’d have to be careful when going for a run in the streets. Besides this, the sound quality is very reasonable for the price with no overwhelming bass notes and no piercing treble notes, plus the bullet design means they are more discreet if that’s what you are after. When exercising and using the push buttons, we did notice that this loosened them slightly meaning we had to re-adjust again; something worth noting if you’re a constant track changer.

Top tip: Swap the gel buds to foam buds straight away for better isolation and a better in ear fit from the start.

Pros: Long lasting battery, volume control, impressive sound.

Cons: No app to customise the sound, no hear-through mode.

Features:

App availability: No

Battery: Up to 9 hours listening time, with an extra 36 hours from the case (45 hours in total)

Hear-through: No

Active Noise Cancelling: No, but they do have great noise isolation

Charging port and Connectivity: Micro USB. Works with Bluetooth devices.

Sweat and Water resistant: Yes – IPX5 meaning they will easily handle rain and sweat

Extra bud tips: Included – S/M/L gel tips and one size of foam tips

Ease of controls: A light touch is all that’s needed to press the buttons which helps when working out.

Ratings:

Style: 8/10

Sound: 7/10

Durability, fit and controls: 6/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: Along with an incredible battery life and decent sound at this price point, these are a winner if you’re after a no-frills set of earbuds without compromise.

BEST FOR THE BASS – Sony WF-XB700 Truly Wireless Headphones with EXTRA BASS™, £89

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Sony 2

If you’re after a budget-friendly set of earbuds that won’t compromise on sound, then the Sony WF-XB700’s are a great first buy into the wireless earbud world. If you ever had a pair of wired Sony earbuds back in the 90’s/early 00’s then this will feel exactly the same, just without the wires. The standout feature is the bass; it’s punchy but that means it does lack a bit of treble. There’s also no app, and sadly no hear-through function meaning you’d need to be careful if you’re running through the streets. Saying all that, they will take a few splashes of water, and unlike a lot of earbuds, they connect to both buds separately meaning you’ll get a stable Bluetooth connection and you can even just use one earbud. The design is not as discreet as some earbuds but they fit comfortably and feel like a good solid pair of earbuds after choosing the right ear tips.

Top tip: Customise the controls in app so you can decide how many presses it takes to switch between tracks.

Pros: Easy to use, great bass, and volume controls.

Cons: No app to customise the sound, no hear-through mode, and no voice assistant.

Features:

App availability: No

Battery: Up to 9 hours listening time, with an extra 9 hours from the case (18 hours in total)

Hear-through: No

Active Noise Cancelling: No

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C. Works with Bluetooth devices.

Sweat and Water resistant: Yes – IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included – XS/S/M/L

Ease of controls: Small buttons on the sides of the earbuds work well. One side is dedicated to music control and the other side for volume control which is a plus.

Ratings:

Style: 6/10

Sound: 7/10

Durability, fit and controls: 8/10

Connectivity: 9/10

Summary: All in all a perfect entry-level pair of earbuds if you want to keep things simple.

BEST FOR THE BIKE – Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones, £179

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Sony

Another offering from Sony – these earbuds have the best sound quality in terms of clarity, which can also be adjusted in Sony’s app. But it must be noted that these earbuds are not waterproof and are not advertised as being fit for exercising. So, when it came to working out, they managed on a spin session but they took a while to get the right fitting ear tips and they also took a bit of adjusting until they felt secure. Saying all that, the controls are good, and can be adjusted to control either the volume or Alexa – but no more than one on each button which is a shame.

Top tip: Hold your finger on the left tip sensor to be able to hear through your music temporarily, for example if you are ordering coffee. Also keep the controls on default.

Pros: Active Noise Cancelling, incredible sound quality.

Cons: Even though they look smart, they stick out too much and feel like they are going to fall out. Not the best for exercising.

Features:

App availability: Yes, one of the best.

Battery: Up to 6 hours listening time, with an extra 18 hours from the case (24 hours in total)

Hear-through: Yes, and with multiple Ambient Sound Control levels in app too.

Active Noise Cancelling: Yes, and with Wind Noise Reduction in the app

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C. Works with Bluetooth devices, but the connection did drop out randomly after pausing music for a short time.

Sweat and Water resistant: No.

Extra bud tips: Included – S/M/L – the medium tip felt different here compared to the others. Also included a set of foam-like ear bud tips.

Ease of controls: Easy to use when exercising, but no volume control.

Ratings:

Style: 4/10

Sound: 10/10

Durability, fit and controls: 4/10

Connectivity: 5/10

Summary: Perfect for the desk; not so much for fitness.

BEST FOR SOUND QUALITY – Bose Sport Earbuds, £179

Cyber Monday: Best Wireless Earbuds For Working Out In 2021. Tested For Every Budget
© Provided by Grazia Best wireless earbuds for working out 2020 Bose

As you’d expect with Bose, these earbuds sure do deliver on sound quality straight from the box. They also glide in very easily and have a wing tip to keep them secure during a workout. There’s a sort of ambient mode on by default here too, meaning we can hear external noises or oncoming traffic easily so they are a good option if you’re wanting to be more aware of your surroundings. We found the controls a little disappointing as whilst the right earbud can play and pause, we had to actually go into the Bose Music app itself in order to add a ‘shortcut’ to the left earbud so that we could even skip a track. The case is also slightly on the larger side and offers no wireless charging.

Top tip: As mentioned, download the app and go into settings > shortcut to add another function to the left earbud.

Pros: Sound quality, secure fit for exercise.

Cons: Lack of controls, large case.

Features:

App availability: Yes, Bose Music app

Battery: Up to 5 hours listening time, with an extra 10 hours from the case (15 hours in total)

Hear-through/Ambient mode: No

Active Noise Cancelling: No

Charging port and Connectivity: USB-C

Sweat and Water resistant: IPX4

Extra bud tips: Included wing tips – S/M/L

Ease of controls: Not many options for tap controls on the earbuds

Ratings:

Style: 8/10

Sound: 9/10

Durability, fit and controls: 4/10

Connectivity: 8/10

Summary: The lack of controls really brings this set of earbuds down, especially for the price. But if you’re happy for the music to just play on its own, then you’ll be rewarded with solid audio quality that you can rely on.

What to consider when buying your new earbuds…

1. What is ‘Ambient/Hear-through’ mode?

This is a very important feature for exercising outside, especially if you are in a city for example. It allows you to be aware of your surroundings without having to take your earbuds off.

2. Which wireless earbuds will work with my phone?

Most, if not all, connect to all devices very easily on first use of the earbuds as they enter pairing mode automatically.

3. Do you have to use an app with all wireless earbuds?

This should be a standard feature now as you can customise the sound to fit your needs. Features should include, at the very least, an option to adjust the EQ or to receive firmware updates.

4. What is an IP rating?

This is something you’ll definitely want to check if you’re using them for exercising as this is a grade in testing how waterproof or sweatproof the earbuds themselves are (not the case though!). Generally most earbuds come with an IP rating of IPX4 meaning they are sweatproof but not waterproof. Google the IP rating so you can get more details about what they can withstand.

5. Can you use just one earbud?

Most earbuds require you to use both at the same time for one person only, as one earbud connects to the other at a limited distance. So it’s worth checking out this feature, especially if you plan to pop a new tip on and share some music on a run with a friend.
