Luxurious over-the-ear cans are plush, comfortable, and they sound great. But for working out, traveling, and wandering around town, you might want to consider a pair of durable, wireless in-ear buds. I’ve been trail running, hiking, working on my yard, lifting weights, and watching mildly embarrassing barre and yoga videos on my laptop, all while testing the best wireless workout headphones around. If you like listening to music while scrambling up stony slopes or mowing your lawn, here are a bunch of WIRED’s favorite pairs. We’ve worn, and sweated on, all of them.
Be sure to check out our favorite completely wirefree earbuds, cheap headphones, Best Bluetooth speakers, smart speakers, and other buying guides.
Updated for November 2020: We removed an older pick and added some new ones, like the Bose Frames Tempo.
