Recently a new category of headphones has emerged: Sports headphones. Let’s take a look at what they’re designed to do and the special features that makes them perfect for athletes and active types.

What are ‘Sports’ headphones?

There’s not much mystery in buying a Sports headphone; for the most part, the word will appear prominently on the package. Sports headphones are made to adapt to many active situations, and often have the following characteristics:

-water/sweat resistance
-cushioned foam holding earbuds in, or clips, loops or bands that can help keep headphones from falling out of/off of your ears
-noise cancellation/sound isolation
-wireless options

But sports headphones also come with some pretty high tech options, like the ability to read your hear rate via your ear canal, in-ear coaching or workout instructions and the ability to block out your gym’s noise.
