Standard earbuds do not do the trick when it comes to a tough workout. Stressing out about music cutting out or losing your iPhone on a treadmill is not where the brain should be in the middle of a solid run. If you've grappled with this issue as much as I have, then you know it's no laughing matter. After creating my own contraption that requires a headband and a multitude of bobby pins, I was willing to give just about anything a shot. Luckily, the MEElectronics Sport-Fi S6 ($50) was brought to my attention. Keep reading to learn why I'm sticking with these workout-friendly earbuds.
In addition to the headphones themselves, the package comes with a sturdy armband, carrying case, and six different types of ear tips you can try out to find your best fit. Customizing your buds not only helps them stay in, but also protects your hearing, since you don't have to blast music in order to block out external noises. Memory wire forms perfectly to wrap around your ear shape, and after a few trials, I found that the wire continued to keep its shape throughout my workout and that the buds stayed put even when I started to sweat. On top of it all, these headphones offer some of the best sound quality I've found in this price range. Not only are they an ideal option for a workout, but also, I'd absolutely recommend them for everyday use.
