Impressive for the price, these wireless buds have a great fit and reliable Bluetooth connectivity. They have five hours of battery life, and solid, if not spectacular, sound quality.

You can get wireless Powerbeats, but these ones, which connect at the back, are cheaper, yet still great quality. The battery lasts an impressive 15 hours.

If you prefer full headphones but worry they’ll get damaged, these ones can withstand all kinds of bumps, so are a good bet. Sound is average, but battery life is 16 hours.

Jabra Elite Active 75t

Both very comfortable and unshakable, these earbuds are meant for exercise but sound good enough to use anywhere. Water and dust resistant, they have 7.5 hours of battery and are even mildly noise-cancelling.

They may look on the clunky side, but these earbuds are great-value, very secure and waterproof. The four-hour battery life could be better, but sound quality is good, and you can adjust the volume by tapping the side.
