Listening to music while working out can be a great motivator—but not when you’re using so-so headphones. Staying physically fit is tough enough, so why complicate things? We found two deals on premium headphones that can help take your workout up a notch.
The Bose SoundSport In-Ear headphones are on sale for $39 (down from $99), and combine crisp sound and deep base with comfortable, stay-in-place ear tips.
The headphones also feature a handy remote for controlling volume and switching music tracks without needing to reach for your smartphone. The included carrying case is a plus, so you won’t get a tangled mess of wires inside your gym bag or pocket.
“Great fit, great sound, easy to operate and durable,” wrote a five-star Walmart reviewer. “The best feature about using them for running is that they provide great sound but do not block surrounding noises. Being able to hear things—a car, a person shouting, a dog—is essential to improving running safety while listening to music.”

The Beats Powerbeats3 are also heavily discounted. Walmart has the refurbished pair on sale for $49 — 85 bucks off retail.
The Beats are wireless, so you don’t have to worry about tangles. Simply sync them to your smartphone via Bluetooth. If you’re an iPhone user, the Powerbeats3 feature Apple’s magical W1 chip for automatic syncing to your device. (This is the same chip-set that Apple Airpods use to seamlessly sync with iPhones.)
Built with workouts in mind, these headphones are sweat- and water-resistant. They pump out clear audio and heavy bass while offering an impressive 12 hours of battery life on a single charge. The Powerbeats3 also have a pretty cool feature called “Fast Fuel,” which gives you up to an hour of juice with just a five-minute charge.
Even though the Beats Powerbeats3 headphones are refurbished, lots of Walmart reviewers vouch for their quality:
A once-reluctant five-star reviewer wrote, “I have to admit I was a little worried about buying these refurbished earphones but the price was just too good to pass up compared to retail. And guess what? They work perfectly so I really feel like I found a great deal.”
“At first I was a little skeptical when purchasing these since they were refurbished,” another satisfied customer wrote. “But, after looking at the reviews, I decided to give it a chance and I'm glad I did! So far so good. Great sound quality and looked brand new. I used them for my first workout and boy does it feel great to not have any cords rubbing against me while running. Great purchase! Would definitely recommend.”
