Before I got my first pair of Powerbeats, I’d worked out with a pair of in-ear, wired headphones that seemed determined to Jack Sparrow-dive from my ears the second I ran a little faster or lifted a little harder. It drove me nuts.

The noise-canceling Powerbeats, meanwhile, immediately proved a reliable companion for an hour of sweating. They employ grippy “hooks” that loop over your ears, while the wire sits unobtrusively at the nape of the neck. They’re a generation behind the tech of the Powerbeats Pros (Beats’ new AirPods-esque fitness earbuds), but they’re also a lot cheaper, especially when you can get them for a discount. Best Buy is currently offering pairs in both black and white for a hefty $110 off.
