TaoTronics Guide: Which Headphones Are Best For Your Activity Level?

best headphones for your activity level

The world of sports headphones can be a confusing place. Even the basics – which headphone type is right for me? – can lead you down an internet rabbit hole where all of a sudden you’re learning about what exactly is true wireless, and why are drivers important?!

To save you this trouble, we’ve put together a quick guide about which headphones you should be looking at for your activity level. Are you always exercising for enjoyment? Do you like raising your heart rate? Or, are you a gym monster? Choose the type of exercise you do and check below for which kind of headphones might be appropriate!

(And remember, yoga lovers – we’ve looked specifically at which headphones are best for you before!)

Exercising for Enjoyment

For people who enjoy: skateboarding, rollerblading, or just want to up their steps to 10,000 a day.

headphones for excercising

If you’re the kind of person who loves anything from a gentle stroll to a few hours hiking, you’re going to need headphones that are versatile. Particularly if you live in the city, where a ‘hike’ might involve heading up the nearest tourist filled monument. Exercising for enjoyment sometimes needs a helping hand…

We suggest getting a pair of over-ear headphones. They should have soft, comfortable earcups and an adjustable headband, so that you don’t feel like your head is being squashed as you walk. Optional active noise cancelling technology is also a great feature; use them at home to block out the sound of people in the apartments around you, or to focus on your thoughts as you walk.

They also look great, so it’s all bases covered really.

Raising Your Heart Rate

For people who enjoy: jogging, rock climbing, and most things in-between.

TT-BH053 True Wireless Earphones
We recommend TT-BH053!

If you’re a bit of a thrill seeker and need complete freedom when you exercise, you’ll need True Wireless earphones. Yep, absolutely no wires involved. No wires, no worries!

The great thing about this kind of headphone is, like Apple Airpods, they come with a case that recharges them for you. This means they can be kept charged for up to forty hours at a time, which is a solid work week’s worth of thrill seeking!

They also need to be light and comfortable, and you’ll want them to be water and weatherproof (IPX5 or above is your best bet). Most pairs nowadays come with crystal clear voice calls and noise isolating technology, meaning they’re great for on-the-go. Your phone becomes completely hands free with smart touch technology as well, so you can concentrate on what’s important to you.

Gym Monsters

For people who just can’t get enough of the gym.

We all know the type – those people who get up at 6:00am to head to the gym before work, who eat well all the time seemingly without effort, who go out and stick to water (or maybe the occasional G&T – “it’s really low calorie, have you heard?”)

If you’re into lifting or have a dedicated routine, first things first – how?! Please let us know in the comments!

But, lets be honest, you’ll also need headphones that are: sweat proof to at least IPX6; durable; have great audio; and don’t cost the world. Our soon-to-launch headphones TT-BH072 will be perfect for you.

These headphones are wireless and magnetized, which means you can hang them around your neck when they aren’t in use. They also have a ton of different equalizer modes, so you can enjoy whatever is motivating you that day. Plus, they are noise isolating so you can focus on getting your workout done.

We recommend TT-BH046, TT-BH053 and TT-BH072 from TaoTronics – check out our full range on Amazon!
