My one New Year’s resolution was to finally start working out consistently before the end of 2023. My only problem? Gymtimidation (basically just anxiety about going to the gym). Well, that, and I lacked earbuds that could handle a real workout.
Listening to my favorite songs while I workout motivates me but my normal headphones were wired, which I worried would limit my mobility — plus, they were on the fritz anyway. I needed a wireless pair so I could move freely, but they had to be cheap so I wouldn’t sweat the cost if I didn’t end up sticking with my new gym routine. So I went to Wirecutter’s workout headphones guide, scrolled straight to the budget pick writeup, added the JLab Go Air Sport to my cart and checked out.
Though I knew I could trust our audio team’s recommendation, I was still surprised by just how much I’ve grown to love these budget earbuds. They’re no longer just the earbuds I bought as a quick, cheap fix to my problem, but a pair I’m quite happy to rely on for my daily use.
