Reviewed on 3rd March 2015 at

Costing less than some exercise classes, these headphones aren't the most feature-packed. But they're comfy, light and sound pretty decent, which is all you can ask for at this price.

Sol Republic Relays Sport

Reviewed on 2nd February 2017 at

Sweat-resistant, vibrantly-coloured and, most crucial of all, fun to listen to, the Relays Sport strike a very acceptable balance at the price. Ignore their tiny tendency to harden the upper frequencies and revel in their lovely articulacy instead.

Soul Electronics Flex

Reviewed on 5th February 2015 at

Sound is punchy and nicely balanced, clearer than rivals from Monster and Sennheiser, and comes with a decent amount of bass. They're also sporty through and through - there's a 1.2m cable, a clip for connecting to your kit, a sliding clasp for cable adjustment and an in-line remote for taking calls on the go. As long as you're not too out of breath to speak.
