JABRA ELITE ACTIVE 65T
If you like listening to music while you exercise, it pays to get headphones designed for the purpose. Instead of bulky over-ear models or uncomfortable buds, go for the Jabra Elite Active 65t — secure-fit, wireless earbuds that are sweat-, water- and dust-resistant, so you know they’re built to last. With five hours of battery life, you’ll have music for long training sessions, and a built-in accelerometer helps to measure performance with an accompanying app. $169.
