Anker Soundcore Liberty Neo
These 4.4-star-rated wireless earbuds from Anker are definitely budget-focused. Don’t expect the luxe features or top-tier sound quality you’d get from a pair of $200 earbuds. But Amazon reviewers say these sub-$50 earbuds are amazing for the price.
“The sound is good, better than average but it’s not a Hi-Fi audiophile’s acoustic dream” Amazon reviewer Greg says. “For the pounding I’m giving these buds while cycling, running, working out, working in the yard and just about every other sweat-soaked activity, they definitely step up to the plate and perform.”
They’ve got real gym chops too: The lightweight Anker Soundcore Liberty Neo earbuds are rated IPX7 waterproof (protected against temporary immersion), so they can be rinsed off after workouts. They promise a secure fit as well, boasting a twist-and-lock design that stays in place.

The Anker Life P3 earbuds (available in five colors) are a good choice for the gym: They’re IPX5-rated for water resistance, so they can handle sweat, and last for seven hours on a single charge. The included wireless charging case extends battery life to a full 35 hours, making them a great choice for travel, too. And should they get lost, the Soundcore app’s “Find My Headset” feature will help track them down via sound alerts.
