With the holidays just around the corner we wanted to release our Workout Headphones Holiday Gift Guide 2011. Some of the items on this list can be found on our Black Friday Headphone Deals and it would definitely be worthwhile to pick them up by this Friday before the deals go away. But even if you don’t grab these gifts in time they’re still some of the best gifts you’ll find for a workout enthusiast, athlete, or gym rat. They’re also a great gift to kickoff the new year with your fitness resolutions.
3 Sport Headphones Stocking Stuffers Under $10
Before we get started we wanted to show you 3 gifts that you can grab for less than $10. Just make sure you don’t judge the gift by it’s price because while these sports headphones are pretty cheap they’re also some of the most popular headphones over the last 10 years and continue to be so.
In 2001, Sony created these and the ultra lightweight vertical headphones (below). Ever since they have become some of the most popular workout headphones, and it doesn’t hurt that they’re incredibly cheap.
As mentioned above these have been popular headphones for nearly a decade. They’re great for any workout but we hear nothing but great things from runners, some of which won’t wear any but these.
While Sony had a lock on the market in the early 2000s, Philips has found a way to create a super comfortable, super affordable pair of workout headphones in the last couple years.
Top 10 Workout Headphone Gifts of 2011
One of the most popular gifts this year will most definitely be the iPod Touch. Not only can you play games and access the internet, but its also our top choice for MP3 players to use for your next workout.
The single best GPS watch on the market, and any athlete’s dream watch.
It’s no surprise that the Monster iSports made this list as well as several other of our Best of 2011 lists this year. There just isn’t anything but good things to say about them.
Getting your friend or family member the new iPhone 4S for Christmas? Well if they plan on using it for their next workout make sure you also grab the Tuneband.
Just like the Monster iSports, the Bose IE2 also made several of our Best of 2011 lists. You’ll be blown away by the sound quality, comfort and secure fit.
Looking for a great set of Bluetooth sports headphones? You can’t go wrong with Motorola’s S305.
Whether you’ll be running in the rain or taking your training to the pool, this waterproof MP3 is the perfect gift.
While we haven’t been able to complete an in depth review of Polk Audio’s new line of sports headphones, what we’ve seen of the Ultra Fit 2000 is looking pretty amazing. Be one of the first to sport these in 2012.
No list is complete without the traditional AM/FM radio headset. Whether you’re out walking or jogging or even working in the yard these can be the perfect set of headphones to help pass the time.
While our specialty is workout and sports headphones and accessories we also wanted to toss our pick of this great workout bag we found.
