    "These are great for the gym. They block everything out, and give good sound quality and comfort."


Did you know that AirPods can be used as hearing aids? A tool dubbed as Live Listen was included in an iOS 12 update for iPhone handsets. Users can activate this component in the iPhone by adding the "Hearing" feature to the control center. After tapping the icon, both the Live Listen feature and the AirPods' battery life should be visible. Then tap to switch it on and your iPhone's microphone will start picking up sounds to send to your AirPods. This new update made the AirPods not only one of the best wireless headphones for the gym but also a helpful device for people with hearing loss. But, the feature is not exclusive to Apple's wireless earbuds. Users can also enjoy Apple's Live Listen with one of the best workout headphones, Powerbeats Pro.

Apple created Live Listen for iPhone with the intention of helping people with hearing issues. The innovation was also designed for iPhone compatible hearing aids. Although the American tech company's intention for launching Live Listen is good, it also had its fair share of controversy. Live Listen transforms the iPhone into a directional microphone while using the AirPods or the Powerbeats Pro as hearing aids. But, some people are talking about misusing the great feature as a spying tool. A tweet by @arnoldcrndo shared the process on how to use Live Listen to eavesdrop to conversations even from another area. The Twitter user also added that the feature can be used as a walkie talkie, as well as a cheating instrument for school. But to be safe, just don't abuse the capabilities of it. Besides, these cordless devices are among the best wireless headphones for working out. It's still better to use the AirPods for staying fit and healthy, right?

    "Everyone's all up on Dre's beats, but I like these understated headphones. It's neat how you can just sort of string them out to the length you need. I'm not sure I get the built in mic part, but the U-shaped holder makes me feel like I'm one of the Goa'uld from Stargate. Maybe that's why they're starting to look at me funny at the gym."

When I workout, I need headphones that feel comfy around the ear without concern of them flying off if I get a little too into my session. These Bluephonic headphones are the perfect balance between the two. The noise cancellation also means I do not need to have my music blaring in my ears. Just some nice techno tunes and sweat.

    "I know that when I workout with headphones, the cord is often getting in my way. This site shows an attractive, cordless/wireless set of headphones. The site specifies the headphones practical use in a gym, but not everyone listens to music while working out and some people don't work out at all but want the wireless headphone option. It might be good to, at least, express other times wireless headphones are useful. I did like that specs of the headphones, including battery time and how the battery level is shown on the device being used. I also like the FAQ section. "
