Best Exercise Headphones?

The best headphones for listening to music aren’t necessarily the best headphones to sticking in your ears and moving with you while you go for a run or hit the bench at the gym. This week we want to know which headphones you think are the best for rocking out while you work out.

When we asked you for the best overall headphones, we knew we were asking about audio quality and bang for your buck. This time we’re looking for similar considerations, but the most important thing will be flexibility and comfort while exercising. Don’t discount audio quality though—you actually do want to hear your music while you exercise, don’t you? Let us know your picks in the comments below.

The Hive Five is based on reader nominations. As with most Hive Five posts, if your favorite was left out, it’s not because we hate it—it’s because it didn’t get the nominations required in the call for contenders post to make the top five. We understand it’s a bit of a popularity contest, but if you have a favorite, we want to hear about it. Have a suggestion for the Hive Five? Send us an email at [email protected]!
