I’m a huge fan of Apple’s AirPods. I’ve had them since Apple first released them last year, and I use them all the time. Or I should say, I used to use them all the time. As someone who works out regularly, I simply can’t deal with them anymore. It is 100% impossible to keep the smooth plastic tips seated properly in your ear, which means sound isolation is out the window. Sound quality suffers, bass suffers, and I couldn’t take it anymore. I picked up a pair of VAVA MOOV 28 Wireless Sports Earphones for under $24 on Amazon, and I’m never looking back. They’re not cord-free like AirPods, but they have silicone tips that stick in your ear perfectly, so sound quality is about 10 times better during workouts.

Here are some highlights from the product page:

  • Ergonomically Angled Eartip Design: Inclined silicone eartips reach deeper into the ear for a snug fit that stays put while feeling comfortable when running, jogging, and working out
  • Stellar Battery Life: The large-capacity battery streams music for up to 9 hours after only 2 hours of charging; Bluetooth 4.2 minimizes power consumption while providing a more stable and reliable connection
  • IPX6 Splashproof Build: Internal nano coating keeps the headphones fully functional even when breaking a sweat or being used under light rain
  • CD-Like Audio Quality with aptX: Advanced audio codec produces richer, fuller sound while providing the convenience of wireless streaming; support A2DP, AVRCP, HSP, and HFP profiles
  • Aluminum Design with Built-In Magnets: Durable, premium build withstands wear and tear and the user’s expectations; lock the headphones around your neck for a sporty, yet secure way to carry

There’s also a newer model available for just $26 with our exclusive coupon code. My pair is on the way and I can’t wait to check them out!
