5 Great Sport Headphones For Less Than $50

It’s hard enough to find the motivation to train. You know, with TV, and Facebook, and Candy Crush and … about a billion other things to do.

sport headphones for men zipbuds#1. For Any Athlete Lacking Patience: Zipbuds Juiced 2.0 Never Tangle Earbuds ($25 without a mic / $40 with a mic @ Amazon.com)

The good: We tried our best to tangle these suckers into knots and our best efforts went for, uh, naught. Using a zipper as the cord — what’s referred to as a “vertabrea” design — has erased that without adding a burdensome amount of weight.

The bad: You need to pay an extra $15 for a microphone/remote to take calls or control volume. Still, it’s worth it.
