The Different Headphones You Should Use For Work, Exercise, and Play

The dream is to have our own background music while we’re walking and doing errands. But since we don’t live in a movie, we have to settle to listening to our playlists with headphones.

You might look at headphones and think that they’re all the same. In reality, they work differently depending on your activities. Plus, they’re easy to wear and carry around since you can hang them around your neck. Scroll down to see our picks for your gym days and leisure time.
