If you rely on music to drive you through a hard workout at the gym or outdoors, then you need the PowerBeats — lightweight sports 'phones from Beats by Dr. Dre. These earbuds use adjustable ear "hooks" that wrap around your ears to keep the buds securely in place, no matter how much you move. Advanced driver technology means that you hear smooth vocals and crisp highs. And a separate woofer pumps out deep bass — perfect when you need that beat to keep yourself on pace.

So I've been trying out these Powerbeats headphones from Monster, and for sports they're right on cue. What I like about them, besides the sound quality, of course, is the fit. They've got these adjustable ear hooks, and when you put them on your ears they lock into place. They're not heavy. They don't feel like you're constricted. They don't weigh you down. They're just there.

And these guys come with an in-line remote so you can volume up. You can play. You can pause. You can make/receive phone calls. So when you're on the treadmill or whatever you're doing when you use these headphones, you're not going to have to go and find your device, answer that phone call, adjust the volume, you know, whatever you need to do, it's not going to slow you down.

So the sound is exactly what you would expect from Monster — good, clear highs, crisp mids. What they've actually done is make get a separate woofer, so the bass is pounding loud and clear. So when you're on the treadmill, you're running down the road, you've got that extra beat to keep you going. You're going to keep your momentum going the whole time.

But what I also like about these is they have natural sound isolation. So what does that mean? It means you're not gonna hear the person next to you. You aren't going to hear them grunting on the treadmill or trying to lift those heavy weights. You're not going to hear those people that are talking when you're walking down the road or whatever you're doing. However you use these, you're gonna be in your own world enjoying your music.
