No matter if you're hitting up the gym, going for a 3-mile run, or are out on a bike ride, having the right pair of headphones can turn any dull workout into a great one. Music, podcasts, and audiobooks are excellent ways to keep yourself motivated while breaking a sweat. They below are 12 options that we think will serve you admirably no matter how hard you're pushing yourself.

Finding headphones for daily use is one thing, but getting a pair specifically for working out can be a bit of a challenge. You need some that aren't too bulky, that fit in or around your ears comfortably and securely, and are at least somewhat sweatproof. If they're water-resistant, that's even better.

No matter your budget or needs, there's a pair of headphones on this list for you. For most people, our top recommendation goes to the Soundcore Spirit X (opens in new tab). They may not be the very best sounding headphones on this list, but for the price, you'll be hard-pressed to find something better.

Along with the solid sound, the Spirit X also manages to deliver a simple, yet effective design, IPX7 water resistance, and a battery that should last for up to 12 hours of music playback. All of that for less than $40? You'd be silly not to pick these up.

If your budget is a bit more flexible and you want to treat yourself to something more premium, we'd suggest checking out the Jabra Elite Active 75t (opens in new tab) and Jaybird X4 (opens in new tab). You'll spend more money for these headphones, but they're well, well worth it.
