5 Best Workout Headphones For iPhone XS Max In 2018

If you workout regularly, you know that you definitely don’t want to use your iPhone XS Max’s built-in speakers for listening to music at the gym or on a run. For one, the iPhone XS Max might have some nice speakers, but they’re still not loud enough that you can hear clearly while jogging or running down the road. That, and you don’t want to be rude to other people in the gym by blasting your music.

That said, if you follow along below, we’ll show you the best workout headphones that you can pick up for your iPhone XS Max. These headphones are going to be resistant to perspiration and are fairly durable in rougher environments. Here are our top picks.

Swimbuds Sport

First up on our list, we have a neat pair of headphones called the Swimbuds Sport. These headphones have some excellent audio quality to them, and they’re extremely resistant to the elements. That said, you don’t have to worry about shorting out the circuitry during heavy rainfall or during swimming exercises. These headphones are by all intents and purposes waterproof, so you really won’t have trouble with them.

They come with a bevy of different ear tips — this allows you to swap out the default ones for ones that are more comfortable. That, and some are more optimal for, say, when you’re wearing a swimmers cap. No matter what, the Swimbuds Sport workout headphones are extremely versatile, especially since you can use them for regular gym exercises and swimming. There aren’t a whole lot of headphones out there that allow you to do the latter.

Jaybird X3

The Jaybird X3’s might be the most reputable pair of workout headphones on the market right now — they have some really great sound quality in them, on par with well known brands like Beats and even Audio Technica. These connect up to your iPhone XS Max by way of Bluetooth, and will last almost all day off of a single charge — you get eight hours of straight music playback, but you can make that stretch a little more if you listen on and off.

These headphones are low profile as well — they fit in the ear comfortably and aren’t too big. They do fit snugly so that you don’t lose them when you go on a run or jog as well. With a special coating over the earbuds, these are designed to repel liquid, and that could be from a spill, rain, snow, or a heavy sweat.

Bose SoundSport

We’re big fans of the Bose SoundSport’s as well. Bose is a prolific maker of all sorts of audio products, and they put that same quality and reputation into the Bose SoundSport. They’re better than the Jaybird X3’s as far as actual sound quality goes, but they do have less battery life off of a single charge. You actually only get six hours of battery life out of the Bose SoundSport’s than the eight hours you get in the Jaybird X3’s. Bose has outfitted their SoundSport’s with something called StayHear+ fitment technology, which keeps these earbuds firmly in place, even during intense workout sessions.

Sennheiser OCX 686G

We really like what Sennheiser is offering in the OCX 686G’s as well. Odd name convention, yes, but this is a high quality pair of workout headphones that you don’t want to pass up. These are different because they are wired — you actually get better sound quality this way because you aren’t dealing with latency and wireless response times. Not only that, but you don’t have to deal with keeping these charged as well.

As far as sound quality goes, they sound excellent. They stay fitted in the ear really well, and with a remote embedding into the wiring, you can play/pause, adjust volume, and even take phones calls with the built-in microphone.

SENSO Bluetooth Headphones

The SENSO Bluetooth Headphones might be last up on our list, but these are still a great pair of headphones that you don’t want to pass up. They are a little on the pricier side, but these are a high quality pair of headphones that you don’t want to pass up. They might have slightly less sound quality than the Bose SoundSports or the Jaybird X3’s, but the average person won’t notice a big difference.

Verdict

As you can see, you still have a lot of options as far as workout headphones go. We’ve compiled some of the best for you, but out of these, which one should you pick up? If you want the best possible quality, you cannot go wrong with the Jaybird X3’s or the Bose SoundSport. If you want something a little cheaper, the SENSO Bluetooth Headphones aren’t a bad option either.
