Weights. Lifts. Good Music.
Going to the gym and maintaining a constant gym routine can be tiresome tasks. The daily challenges of weight lifts and push-ups can make you feel like quitting the thing altogether. But what if you had your favorite music to boost you up? The perfect playlist of motivational and energetic songs can boost your spirits and help you achieve the ideal figure you aspire to have.
Now, to have the perfect music with you to boost you up in the gym, you also need the ideal earpieces for it to listen to. Wired earphones and headphones can appear like a nightmare in a gym when each movement during your exercise can lead to falling off an earphone, or the entangled wires can sometimes even lead to some mishap, perhaps. What to do in such a case?
With the modern technology developing every day to cater to the demands and needs of the common public, you can have neckbands, wireless headphones, ear pods, and a lot of other options to save you from, literally, the 'wired' mess and let you enjoy your music as you complete your workout routine.
Today, in this article, we will consider two such options – Neckbands and Ear Pods and see which can make a better fit for you in the gym.
WHAT ARE NECKBANDS?
These are sometimes even called 'behind the neck' earphones or headphones as literally, they comprise earphones and a collar attached to them, which usually have the microphone to speak in. In recent times when people were tired with the wired earphones and their constant falling off while walking and even having to hold the microphone close to them while speaking, these came as a savior. They are popular now, and some of the most relaxed neckband earphones we recommend are Portronics’ Harmonics 300 and Harmonics X.

WHAT’S BETTER – NECKBANDS OR WIRELESS EARBUDS?
In a world where people were tired and irritated with wired headphones and earphones, wireless gadgets appeared as a boon to people. With the simple technology of Bluetooth connecting people's smartphones and their devices quickly, life became much more straightforward and convenient for all. Again, as we said previously, technology's main aim was to better people's daily lives, and when exercise and workout are concerned, neckbands and wireless earbuds both come as a rescue from the wired troubles. These tech savvy and cool gadgets are to be trusted with good sound quality and ease of use.
Portronics' various neckbands and wireless earbuds come with sweat-resistant, silicone bodies that are soft on the skin and too light for the user's comfort. With long battery life and long Bluetooth ranges, both gadgets can confuse people with what to choose and what not to.
Wireless earbuds can appear as a much better option to people when they want to avoid any wires in their gadgets at all costs. However, no wires mean no additional attachment for earbuds. So, if they fall while you are working out, there is a chance of someone stepping on them due to their small size, and sometimes, they can even get lost.
This problem doesn’t exist in neckbands. Neckbands like Portronics' Harmonics 200 come with a sturdy and robust neck collar that makes them much reliable to use when heavy pieces of equipment and machines surround one. Also, Harmonics 300 has magnetic strips attached to the earbuds, which saves them from dangling independently and protects them better.
So, we suggest if you are a person who prefers indoor workouts, Pilates, or yoga, wireless earbuds are the perfect fit for you. They can be your ideal buddy for indoor exercises and relaxation with their small size and lightweight body. Even people who practice meditation and mindfulness can enjoy calm, serene music with a brilliant sound quality that earbuds like Portronics' Twins 33 or Twins Mini provides.
Although, if you are a person who wishes to enjoy the cool breeze of gardens and the fresh smell of grass in parks, the neckbands are your go-to gadget for your music needs. They form a perfect fit for people who enjoy jogging, racing, or only a walk with your dog in the park. Even for older people in your house, neckbands are much easier to maintain and operate and can be useful for them during their morning or evening walks.
For the people who like to see their muscles pump and their body come in the perfect shape in the gyms, neckbands are a much better fit than wireless earbuds. So, you may be lifting heavy dumbbells or doing a bench press, or simply push-ups; these neckbands won't disappoint or irritate you in between at all.
Finally, after this elaborate and detailed discussion about wireless earbuds and neckband earphones, and headphones, we hope you will be able to make your choice about the perfect gym buddy in terms of your music needs. With the ideal gadget, you will be able to listen to your favorite inspiring and energizing playlist and get in shape as you wished for long.
