Best Sweatproof True Wireless Earbuds iMore 2021
Sweatproof earbuds are essential, especially when you're working out. Typically, an IPX4 rating (sweat and splash-proof) is fine for most types of workouts, but some earbuds take it a step further to try to isolate any water from entering your earbuds. We've gathered a list of the best sweatproof true wireless earbuds out there.

Best overall: Jabra Elite Active 75tStaff Pick
Take everything that was great about the Jabra Elite 75t and tack on even better water and dust resistance, with an IP57 rating, and you get the Elite Active 75t. This means that your earbuds will be able to withstand most types of workouts (sans swimming and other workouts where the earbuds might get fully submerged). Pair that with excellent comfort, long battery life, and great customizability through Jabra's smartphone app, and the Elite Active 75t are going to be tough the beat.
Runner up: Jaybird Vista
The Jaybird Vista are IPX7 water-resistant, which means they'll be able to withstand the toughest of workouts and most weather conditions. Also, they last up to 6 hours on a single charge and 16 hours with the charging case. The Vistas are also super comfortable and sound fantastic.
Long battery life: Powerbeats Pro
While they're admittedly not the createst on Android, it's no denying that the Powerbeats Pro feature some of the longest battery life for a seet of true wireless earbuds with up to 9 hours before needing to recharge. If you need long battery life with IPX4 water resistance, the Powerbeats Pro are an easy choice. It's biggest downsides are that the case is massive and the lack of customiizability on Android.
Incredible value: Anker Soundcore Liberty Neo
At its price, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Neo offers IPX7 water resistance, which means you can do almost any sort of workout with them. The earbuds get you 5 hours of juice on a single charge, and the included charging case nets you an additional 15 hours. The Liberty Neo are super small, light, and portable, making them perfect for those on a budget.
Fantastic sound: Master & Dynamic MW07 Go
If you're looking for the best sound quality and are willing to fork over the cash for it, the Master & Dynamic MW07 Go should be on your radar. They offer some of the best sound for true wireless earbuds while also simultaneously offering IPX6 water resistance and long battery life with up to 10 hours on a charge. The included charging case also nets you an additional 30 hours of juice.
Super versatile: Jabra Elite 75t
While the Elite 75t from Jabra are only IP55 rated, that's still good for most light and moderate workouts. They're also the only earbuds on our list that are dust resistant. The Elite 75t by far offers the most customizability of anything on our list, allowing you to customize things such as the sound signature via EQ, and a useful find my earbuds feature if you lose them.
Earbuds and a speaker: Phiaton Bolt BT 700
If you've ever wanted true wireless earbuds that were great for working out but also doubled as a mini speaker, the Bolt BT 700 from Phiaton may be right for you. The speaker won't blow your mind as it's integrated into the case, but given the size, it's a decent ultra-portable speaker.
Time to break a sweat...
True wireless earbuds are still a relatively new headphone category. However, they've exploded a ton over the last few years and can be for many different types of customers. There are even earbuds for people who like to workout, and they usually have some form of water resistance. The Jabra Esite Active 75t are currently the best combination of battery life, comfort, and sound quality. They are IP57 dust and water resistant, which is more than enough for most workouts.
Personally, I'd go for the Powerbeats Pro as they feature much longer battery life with up to nine hours before needing to be put back in the case. They are IPX4 rpated which means they are splash and sweat proof. Unless you plan on running a marathon in a tropical storm, you the Powerbeats Pro should survive. The only real downside to them is their charging case, which is at least 3x larger than anything on this list.
