Review: Sweatproof True Wireless Earphones Made for Working Out

I finally bit the bullet and got an iPhone without a headphone jack, which means using wireless Bluetooth headphones when possible. And when working out, the True Wireless Earphones ($59.99) from Laud are a great start. I like that they are sweatproof and more importantly, that they have earhooks to keep them in place, especially during running and other forms of exercise. Those tiny earbuds that fit inside the ear aren't as reliable in similar circumstances.

The earbuds aren't tiny but their size makes them fit better and provides real buttons that you can feel without fumbling. They come with an assortment of ear tips and a single "Y cable" that can charge both earbuds. The earbuds are sold in all black or a red and black model. They have an integrated microphone so you can make phone calls, too. Just remember the battery life is limited to about 5 hours.



  • Sweatproof
  • Easily accessible buttons
  • Secure earhook
  • Available in black or red and black
  • Integrated microphone


  • 5 hours of battery life

Final Verdict

If you work out and want earbuds that stay put while exercising, the Laud True Wireless Sport earbuds are an affordable option.
