They're Sweatproof and Sound Great
Stop Wearing AirPods to the Gym. Buy These True Wireless Earbuds Instead
The main gripe against Apple’s AirPods: they’re not sweat-proof or water-resistant. Meaning that even though a lot of people work out with them, they probably shouldn’t.
If you’re looking for great true wireless earbuds to run and exercise with, there are two good options. The first is Jaybird’s newly announced Run XT ($180), its second-gen true wireless earbuds that are full-on waterproof.
Then there’s Jabra’s Elite Active 65t, which are essentially sweatproof versions of the Jabra Elite 65t ($170) wireless earbuds. They sound superb and have an impressive mic array to make taking calls clear and easy. The Elite Active 65t also work with Amazon Alexa, as well as your smartphone’s native assistant.
Normally $190, eBay is selling Jabra’s Elite Active 65t for $125. The catch is that they’re Manufacturer Refurbished, but if you have any issues with them, eBay has a pretty lenient return policy (30 days). It’s no doubt this is a pretty great deal on some seriously good true wireless earbuds.|
