Luxurious ear boxes are plush, comfortable and sound great. But for working out, traveling, and strolling around town, you might want to consider a pair of durable wireless in-ear headphones. I trail, hiked, worked in my backyard, lifted weights, and watched slightly embarrassing bar and yoga videos on my laptop, all while testing the best wireless workout headphones. If you enjoy listening to music while scaling stony slopes or mowing your lawn, here are some favorite pairs from WIRED. We’ve all worn and sweated them.
Update for March 2021: We have removed the Plantronics Backbeat Fit and the Jabra Elite 75T, and added the Jabra Elite 85T and the JBL Under Armor True Wireless Streak.
