We don’t know about you, but music gets us through our workouts.

Whether you listen in the gym or while you travel, everyone needs a handy pair of headphones to get by

Whether you listen in the gym or while you travel, everyone needs a handy pair of headphones to get by

If you’ve ever had to work out without music you’ll understand why we appreciate a good tune during exercise.

And while there are so many different types of headsets available now, it can be hard to choose which ones are right for you.

Thanks to Plantronics, we’ve been testing some of the best ear pieces to listen on in the gym, and we were very impressed with their range…

There’s no first world problem quite like having to untangle wires on a pair of earphones, and that’s why wireless bluetooth headsets are all the range right now.

So, let’s talk about the Backbeat GO 810 headphones.

As part of the music and entertainment range by Plantronics, these over ear headphones are wireless and have up to 22 hours of power. The dual-mode active noise cancelling feature lets you choose how much outside noise you hear while you listen - a perfect feature for those who commute and want to feel like they’re in their own space.

Advanced acoustic technology with dual EQ modes: balanced and bright can be customised through the BackBeat app, for richer and more detailed audio. The on ear controls allow you to take calls, skip tracks, adjust volume, select EQ presets, turn active noise cancelling on and off, and activate smartphone voice assistants.

The BackBeat GO 810 has memory foam ear pads for long lasting comfortable wear, and comes in navy blue, bone white and black.

RRP: £139.99

What we thought:

Not only are these headphones super stylish, but they’re also brilliant for taking yourself away with sound. The noise-cancelling feature means that no matter where you are, you can drown out any unwanted noise and focus on the music you love, and only the music you love.

They’re great for travelling on busy trains when you want to switch off, but also perfect for smashing a great work out with some feel-good tunes.

Whether you buy them for yourself as a pay-day treat or for a gift, whoever receives these will no doubt love them. If you’re gifting these headphones, we think they’d make a wonderful present for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day.

If headphones aren’t your thing and you prefer to go wireless with earphones, the BackBeat FIT 3100 may be the ones for you. They have a flexible design for ultimate comfort, and are sweatproof and waterproof, meaning they’re perfect for working out both inside the gym, and running outdoors.

With up to five hours of continuous wireless listening and ten additional hours provided by the charge case, staying on the move has never been easier. And with a downloadable app and on-ear controls, the BackBeat FIT 3100 can be customised for a unique listening experience.

RRP: £129.99

What we thought:

These little earphones are perfect for working out. They’re comfortable on the ear and easy to navigate, and their petite size makes it them portable no matter where you’re heading.

They come in a sleek little charging case meaning they won’t get lost or separated when not in use, and even if you forget to charge them manually, the case has got your back.

The sound system is strong - get ready to smash your next workout with this heavy bass. We love these little earphones, and won’t miss another workout now we have them!

If you’re looking to buy these as a gift, they’d make a great present for gym-goers that love a hardcore cardio work-out… If you’re significant other is that person, perhaps a Valentine’s treat?
