JBL Endurance Jump is sweat resistant, weather sealed and dustproof making it a good match for outdoor activities. It’s frequency range is from 20 Hz to 20k Hz and it offers passive noise cancellation. However, the sound quality is decent – not good enough when compared to other pieces in some range like OnePlus Bullets Wireless. The sound is loud but lacks clarity & detail and can sometimes seem harsh. The feature set, design & controls make up for the average sound quality rendering this product a place in this list. Overall, a safe choice for fitness-oriented people who look for rhythm instead of intricacies.

Sony MDR-XB50BS

This product by Sony targets the fitness enthusiasts who engage in demanding physical activities.  Sony MDR-XB50BS’s design, not very flattering, might initially seem heavy but this sturdiness helps the earphones to stay in place.

Buttons placed on the underside of the earpiece make it easy to handle. It is water-resistant but not waterproof. The range of frequency is from 4 Hz- 24k Hz. Doing justice to it’s name, the bass turns out to be very punchy making the bass experience an enjoyable one. The sound is pleasant, loud and clear. The sound quality is impressive vis-à-vis the price. It offers decent call quality and noise cancellation. One of the most significant features is it’s battery which goes on for about 8.5 hours with only around 50 minutes of charging. It can be connected to source via BT & NFC. To sum it up, we would say it’s a winning deal available in shades of blue, black and orange.
