How To Choose A Sports Headphone For Working Out

Research shows that music can motivate you to power through tough workouts and to have fun in the process. With music moving you along, you're less likely to focus on physical strain. So you'll push yourself harder and exercise longer.

As a runner, you're going to need comfortable headphones that stay in place and out of your way. Here are some tips on how to find the best sports headphones.

1. They have to be tough

Built to endure rigorous workouts, sports headphones are moisture-resistant so they won't be damaged by sweat or rain. For example, Mixcder R9 sweat-proof as its nano coating technology protects it from sweat and allows it to work in rainy day.

2. Comfort and fit are key

Earbuds are the best style of headphones for working out, because they don't add extra weight. But regular earbuds tend to fall out of your ears if you run or move around a lot.

Sports headphones are specially designed to stay in your ears. They come with soft silicone tips in different sizes to ensure a secure, comfortable fit in nearly anyone's ears. Mixcder R9 includes different sizes of air wings for secure comfortable fit and soft ear tips for maximum comfort. These light, yet durable ear tips avoid nerves and pressure points inside the ears for continued comfort during long runs or workouts.

3. Stay in control

When you're on a roll with your workout, the last thing you want to do is stop in the middle of what you're doing and pull out your device to skip a track or adjust volume. Most sports headphones have in-line remote controls. If you need to take important calls, make sure to get a pair with an in-line microphone that works with your phone.

4. Avoid cord entanglements

Behind the neck sports headphones cables are extra-durable and have a flat, tangle-free design, so you can toss them into a gym bag without worrying about damaging them. You'll also find them to be a more manageable length than regular earbud cords. Some sports headphones even come with a shorter cable you can use if you wear your device on an armband.

5. Tired of dealing with cords altogether? Try a wireless pair

Wireless neckband headphones have built-in Bluetooth for wireless music streaming. A short cable connecting the earbuds runs behind your head, with an in-line remote on one side, positioned near your ear.

Keep in mind that Bluetooth headphones won't work if their built-in batteries aren't charged. You'll need to plan ahead to keep the tunes pumping throughout your run.
