Listen to your favorite tunes with your Samsung Gear with these great headphones!
Your Samsung Gear Sport, S3, or S2 are great for on-the-go productivity and pleasure. Whether you want to listen to your favorite tunes on your weekly jog, conduct phone calls using your smartwatch on the subway, or taking in a new audiobook while your significant other is sleeping next to you, a great pair of wireless headphones are essential to enjoying sound through your Samsung Gear.
Here are our favorite wireless headphones to use with your Samsung Gear Sport, S3, or S2.
Jaybird has been making quality headphones for quite some time and the Jaybird X3s are no exception.
You can get a full week of workouts on a single charge and a quick 15 minutes of charging will get you a full hour at least. If you rely on your tunes to get you through a workout, check out the Jaybird X3 wireless earbuds and enjoy.
PC Mag was more than satisfied with the overall quality of the headphones:
"Powerful audio performance with strong, rich bass and well-defined, bright highs. The gym-friendly Jaybird X3 wireless earphones deliver high-quality audio in a comfortable, secure-fitting design."
These headphones come in Blackout or Sparta (white) colors, and they're sweat- and rain-proof, so you can pour your heart and soul into every workout without worrying about frying them. Pricing starts around $100.
Bose QuietComfort 35
The Bose brand has been the gold standard for active noise-canceling headphones for years, and it's Bluetooth QuietComfort 35 (QC35) over-ear model that carries the torch.
Though other brands have come close to matching Bose's quality, I still think Bose is the headphone manufacturer to beat, and I'm not the only one.
The Wirecutter has selected the Bose Q35 as its best wireless noise-canceling pair of headphones.
I know battery life is of extreme concern when it comes to anything that runs on Bluetooth, but the QC 35 has a 20-hour battery life. Plus, even if you do run out of power, you can use the included AUX cable to still listen to the audio. The noise-canceling feature, however, will not function if the battery is dead.
You can get a pair of the Bose QC35 in black or silver and they will cost you around $349.
V-Moda Crossfade 2
If you're looking for a unique design in a pair of headphones, the V-Moda Crossfade 2 definitely sticks out from the crowd.
Coming with a compact carrying case, the V-Moda Crossfade 2 can be used both wirelessly and with a wired connection, making it perfect for toting around.
CNET was pleasantly impressed with the improvements V-Moda made from the previous model.
"The sturdily built, well-designed V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless delivers better battery life and improved sound over its predecessor, with more sculpted bass and better detail. The new larger earpads provide a more comfortable fit."
A pair of the V-Moda Crossfade 2 will set you back about $350 and comes in matte black, white, or rose gold trimmings.
Bose SoundSport Wireless
If you're hoping to get the signature Bose sound in a much smaller and workout-friendly package, look no further than the Bose SoundSport Wireless.
The SoundSport Wireless earbuds are sweat- and weather-resistant, and the gel tips are wholly designed with comfort and stability in mind. Though battery life isn't the greatest in these (about 6 hours on a single charge), they still pack an aural wallop and the mic and music controls are handy.
Comes in Aqua, Black, and Citron for about $149. You can also pick up a pair of Bose SoundSport in Power Red, which has a heart monitor, for $199.
Although the Jabra Move is a couple of years old, it's still a great option for people looking to dip their toes into the wireless world without spending a ton of money.
They don't offer noise cancellation, but still, provide impressively good sound quality for their construction costs — and an 8-hour battery to get you through most any workday.
At only a fraction of the price of high-end headphones — about $99 — you'll keep a lot more money in your wallet and still have a very capable pair of cans to enjoy your favorite sounds.
