Headphone wires always get in the way, go wireless and never look back
Whether they’re tangled or snagged, cords can be a major hassle. To help you find the perfect wireless headphones, we tested a variety of models. These five are ideal for a hard-working, active lifestyle.
A-Audio’s Icon Bluetooth over-the-ear cans add a touch of class with super-soft leather and chrome detailing. Looks aside, the sound cancellation blocks out coffee shop chatter, and the Bass-Enhancer mode gives your music some solid thump.
Jaybird’s X2 earbuds are lightweight, have an eight-hour battery life and provide killer sound in a small package. The silicone ear fins keep them in place even during rigorous physical activity.
Looking for a good pair of affordable wireless headphones? Motorola’s S10-HD headphones are comfortable, with zero pressure on the ears and temples. The 33-foot Bluetooth range and noise reduction make these a steal of a deal.
Outdoor Technology’s Tuis won’t take up much space in your carry-on, but they carry a big sound. They also work with an included cord, so you can listen while your phone is in airplane mode, then stow the cord and listen wirelessly while you sprint through the airport.
Jabra’s Sport Pulse wireless earbuds have a 30-foot Bluetooth range, provide rich sound and offer five hours of battery life. They also measure your heart rate and test your VO2 max, allowing you to track the quality of your workouts.
