What is this, the ’90s? You don’t have to put up with wires any more—at least not when you’re working out. Sure, audiophiles will use words like “crisp” and “warm” while arguing that Bluetooth doesn’t sound as good as wired. But you can’t go for a run with a turntable and 10-piece speaker set.

BEATS BY DR. DRE POWERBEATS2
$200, beatsbydre.com
Sweat-proof, with clean sound and good (but not reverberant) bass, these are high-quality headphones. You’ll pay a premium for the Beats name, of course, but you’ll get a lot for your money.

SOL REPUBLIC SHADOW HEADPHONES
$100, solrepublic.com
These around-the-neck headphones offer damn good sound quality for such a lean package. Not quite stable enough for running, but they’re a great sport option if you’re into less vigorous activities like cycling.

JAYBIRD BLUEBUDS X
$170, jaybirdsport.com
Arguably the best headphones on this list for all around performance, design, and sound. They stay put and provide great audio for such a slim, unobtrusive headphone.

JABRA SPORT PULSE
$200, jabra.com
With Dolby sound enhancement and a built-in, in-ear heart rate monitor that serious athletes will love, this set offers some features other sport headphones can’t match. The sound quality is excellent for a Bluetooth ear buds.

MONSTER ISPORT FREEDOM
$200, amazon.com
Some guys hate ear buds, which makes these an attractive offering right off the bat. They’ll also keep grooving a ridiculously long time on a single charge—up to a full day—and are water resistant and washable.

006 Flexion

FLEXION KINETIC
$50, amazon.com
You won’t get the battery life you would with more-expensive sport models—only about three hours after a couple months of use. But the sound quality, comfort, and durability are all excellent for the price.

007 Plantronics

PLANTRONICS BACKBEAT FIT
$130, plantronics.com
These sweat-proof headphones fit snuggly and securely, and the sound quality is excellent. Nice bonus: They come with a reflective armband for your phone or MP3 player.

008 Ikross

IKROSS STEREO SPORT
$40, amazon.com
For such an inexpensive model, these perform admirably in terms of sound and battery life. For guys who struggle to find ear buds that stay in, the wrap-around design of these may provide more stability during runs.

009 Alpatronix

ALPATRONIX HX200
$33, amazon.com
For athletes on a budget, these headphones are solid in terms of comfort and durability. The phone functionality is a little spotty, and the sound isn’t stellar. But if you just need something decent and wireless for your workouts, they’ll get the job done.
