Sports headphones for every workout

Sports headphones are the perfect companion when running, jogging, hiking, or working out in the gym – with the right music, you'll have twice as much energy and motivation. Sennheiser’s range of high-quality sports headphones, all with secure fit and excellent sound, mean that there’s a perfect headset for every workout.

Bluetooth headphones during sports – developed with athletes

Sports headphones need to deliver on several counts. They must be resistant to rain and sweat. They should also be tough enough to cope with the movement of exercise, staying firmly and comfortably in place, even during intense workouts. Sports headphones from Sennheiser have been developed alongside athletes who know what they need from their headphones: moisture resistance, flexibility in wearing options, strength and reliability, and powerful, dynamic sound that motivates you to perform at your best.

In-ear with Bluetooth: sports headphones for powerful sound

When it’s time to exercise, you need to leave your in the locker room. These styles of headphones can easily slip or fall off your head during a workout and won’t provide the security that athletes need. This is why Sennheiser has set itself the goal of developing in-ear sports headphones that are perfect for your workout.

In-ear headphones during sports (wireless)

The increasingly popular “true wireless” headphones are so named because they are completely wire-free. Using Bluetooth, you connect to any audio device of your choice in just a few seconds. This makes every training session a personal-best workout.

The advantages of sports headphones incl. true Bluetooth from Sennheiser:

  • Space-saving
  • Easy to use
  • Freedom to move
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Individual customizability

In-ear headphones during sports (wired)

Sennheiser wired in-ear headphones are equipped with a connection cable between the ear buds. These Bluetooth sports headphones give you additional flexibility during training, as the connection cable not only ensures stability and a firm fit, but also makes your sports headphones easy to use. With the help of control buttons on the audio cable, you can adjust the volume of your favorite songs easily and conveniently while working out.

The advantages of sports headphones from Sennheiser with connection cable:

  • Intuitive application
  • Integrated speakerphone
  • Splashproof
  • Stable and secure fit
  • Excellent audio quality
  • Bluetooth® with aptX or AAC
  • Easy volume control and playlist operation

Fit – every sports headphone is different

Just as different activities require special footwear or equipment, you should choose your sports headphones according to the kind of exercise you do. The fit of your headphones is essential for a stress-free workout.

Every pair of sports headphones – whether they have Bluetooth or not – has its own unique fit. What do you need to consider to make sure you get the best experience possible?

  • The weight: Pay attention to how much your headphones weigh. Every gram counts. Lighter models are usually better for long distances and intense endurance sports.
  • The material: Soft silicone is more comfortable to wear and less breakable. Never choose headphones for sports that are made of hard plastic or other brittle materials.
  • The right ear tip: The umbrella-shaped tip of the earphone should nestle evenly against the arch of the ear. To be comfortable in the long term, must fit perfectly and gently shield the ear canal. An accurate fit also improves sound quality. Ear tips are available in sizes S, M and L.

Which sports headphones match which kind of exercise?

  • Headphones for jogging: For jogging, the best choice is an innovative design with wing ear tips that provide a very good grip. Sweat resistance and powerful sound round out the profile. A noise-canceling function means you enjoy incredible Sennheiser sound even in windy conditions.
  • Headphones for swimming: A non-slip and of course a waterproof model is the best choice of headphones for swimming, particularly an adapted silicone model that fits snugly in the ear. When it comes to sports headphones for swimming, size also counts – the smaller the better. This way, you can place the in-ears under your swimming cap and be able to swim underwater as fast and as furiously as you like while listening to your favorite tunes.
  • Headphones for climbing: Smaller in-ear headphones are crucial for climbing, so that you can wear them comfortably under your helmet. As with long-distance running, look for light weight and a snug fit. In-ear headphones with a connecting cable are the ideal choice for this sport, as they guarantee stability.

Battery life – for long endurance & music enjoyment

For longer workouts, you’ll need sports headphones with a battery life that has as much stamina as you do. This means that when choosing sports headphones, you should consider that while an in-ear design is smaller and more convenient, it also means a smaller battery (and battery life). If you tend to take hours-long runs, you should consider how long the headphone battery lasts on a single charge and how long it takes to recharge. The performance of the charging box is also important here since it charges the in-ear headphones on the go.
