We love a good pair of headphones. And we especially love scoring the best headphones under $200, like a very dope pair of JBL headphones. Which is why we’re stoked that the best $200 headphones are on sale and that they also happen to be some of the best workout headphones you can throw in your gym bag. Here are the workout headphones we can get behind, at a price that won’t kick your behind.

Best Workout Headphones Under $200

Not only does these JBL earbuds stay put, but they let you change tracks, manage calls hands-free and access your voice assistant. They have customizable ear-tips and free bit enhancers. Oh yeah, and killer sound.

These headphones deliver deep bass, for the ultimate workout boost. You can do 100 jumping Jacks and these things stay in place. The sound is smooth and crystal clear. And you can customize them for the perfect fit.

These IPX7 waterproof have eight hours’ worth of battery life. They have a nice ergonomic design, equipped with three different sizes of ear tips. They’re noise-cancelling and two hours of charging gives you up to eight hours of Bon Iver.

You get clear sound, packaged in a pair of headphones so comfortable you’ll forget you have them on. They block out subway or street noise, and let you listen to podcasts or music without interference. The memory foam ear cushions are a nice bonus.

With these Beats headphones, you get up to eight hours of battery life. You can take calls, control your music, and activate Siri with RemoteTalk, and you get four size options with the ear tips. The flex form cable is a nice touch, letting you hang these around your neck when you’re not using them.

The extra bass will give your workout a nice boost. And these headphones are Alexa-enabled, to give you full access to Amazon Music and all the other good stuff. But note that these QC25 headphones don’t have either Bluetooth nor VPA capabilities.

This is a stellar pair of starter Beats headphones. The design is reinforced with stainless steel, and the headphones let you take calls and connect with your iOS devices to access your music. Even better are the adjustable vertical sliders that let you personalize your fit.

The headband is nicely padded, and the striped design on the sides of the ear pads makes them more aesthetically interesting than your typical plain gray pair of headphones.
