Stay motivated when you're pushing yourself to the limits with the BE Sport3 Bluetooth in-ear headphones. The lightweight, durable design and custom ear tips keep them securely in place no matter how vigorous your workout – without the distraction of wires. In addition, wireless means a future fit to smartphones that don’t include an audio jack.
The durable design makes the BE Sport3 resistant to rain, sweat and dust (IP55-rated) so the perfect partner whether they’re used in the gym, out hitting the road or the hills.
The BE Sport3 can survive even the most intense training session with an impressive ten-hour battery life - ideal for audio on the move.
Free your workout from cables with advanced Bluetooth® technology offering both aptX® and AAC compatibility. This means easy connection to your smartphone and distortion-free listening at any volume.
Crafted from metal and polycarbonate, the BE Sport3 are tough and lightweight so you’ll be able to power through any workout.
Available in gunmetal grey and rose gold, the BE Sport3 come with multiple colour and size options for the ear tips and wings.
For optimal fit and comfort when you exercise, the BE Sport3 feature an angled design and include a wrap-around neckband, cable management clip, and multiple sets of ear tips and wings.
The newly patented ear tips are developed from high quality silicone. They are uniquely designed to keep the earbuds securely in place during strenuous activity.
The BE Sport3 wireless pairs effortlessly with all the devices I paired it with. These included my iPhone, Smart TV, and Nintendo Switch via the Genki Bluetooth adapter.
The sound is crisp and of a credible quality and made listening to some of my favourite artists an utter delight.
The noise isolation feature works really well.
Spoken word is clear and concise too, whether that be a podcast, audio book or phone call.
All in all the BE Sport3 are an absolutely phenomenal pair of wireless in ear headphones offering affordability, performance and just the right amount of sass.
Not only are these earbuds IP55 rated, making them rain, dust and sweat resistant, but they also have really balanced sound that works well for every genre and incredible noise isolation. They're perfect for the gym because they weigh just 18 grams and don't need to connect to your phone via a dangling, easy-to-knock off cable. Optoma says the frequency response goes from 20 to 20,000Hz, and it has a sensitivity of 102dB +/-3dB at 1kHz.
Why should you pick the Optoma NuForce BE Sport3, because it's one of the cheapest (and best-sounding) in-ear headphones we've ever found. And, good news, it's usually on sale to boot.

Great value wireless headphones for fitness fanatics
While the NuForce BeSport4 earbuds (number one in this list) get our vote for the best wireless headphones for sport, a better value option is their little brother, the Optoma NuForce BeSport 3.
However sound quality is unsurpassed at this price point, they're water-resistant up to IPX5 and boast a 10-hour battery life (again, with a 15-minute quick-charge providing two hours of playback).
Bear in mind that high-impact sports require a really secure fit to keep the buds in your ears. The angled nozzles on the BE Sport3 let you insert the earbuds deeper for a better fit.
Get ready for the most positive review I think I’ve ever done guys – I’m in LOVE! And I’ll tell you why:
I was easily able to get a good and comfy fit for extended periods of usage.
I had no issues when running or exercising with them. They stayed in and there were no audio dropouts when you have your device (sportswatch or smartphone) on your right side ie the same side as the controller on the earbuds.
Other than the sound I was mostly unaware of them ie a good experience.
The earphone is provided with lots of earbuds from different shapes and colors. Bluetooth allows you to synchronize hassle-free with your smartphone, the process is simple.The battery life is stated to last 10h and it is more or less what I have experienced letting it run over the day. The earphones are really lightweight and once in your ears, they don't move. Overall, it is a very good product with fantastic manufacturing.
I’m a big fan of the Optoma NuForce BE Sport earphones.
They’re simple but effective, with a rugged build quality and great sound to boot.
You don’t get some of the other fitness features that comes with more expensive headphones, but if all you need is something to deliver music to your ears while you’re pounding the pavement of pumping iron, the NuSports are an easy choice.
Perfect for runners, these sports headphones are rain and sweat resistant, and come with handy ear-hooks for a secure fit.
One of the best options on the market, regardless of price, these in-ears have received rave reviews for a reason. For such a nimble, affordable set, the sound quality is remarkably good, and the excellent noise isolation means you'll never be interrupted by the outside world on your run.
The earphones are comfortable and secure, and come with several tip sizes, providing a snug fit no matter your ear size. An impressive battery life of up to 10 hours will keep you from charging after each run.
"NuForce have really crafted something special here with the BE Sport3 earbuds. They're an unbelievable value for a pair of wireless earbuds that sound great, last all day, have an extremely durable build and sublime noise isolation".
Simply put, these are the best wireless earphones you can buy right now, and for silly money too. Around £80 will net you an extremely capable pair of buds with a ten-hour battery life, well-balanced sound and impressive noise isolation for all types of music, plus quick and easy Bluetooth connectivity.
Fitness freaks will love the bombproof build, secure wrap-around neckband and rain, dust and sweat resistance, but the understated design means you can wear them away from the gym too.
“You would expect a set of headphones to naturally be quite tricky to stay on whilst excersising, however, the BE Sport 3 overcome this issue excellently. A really good set of ear phones with great sound to use for sport, and for a very good price.”
Jordan Reynolds is a middleweight boxer for Team GB – GB and 3 x MultiNations Champion, 2 x National Champion
“Wicked pair of headphones – no wires really makes them perfect for the gym and training!”
Jordan created a Spotify playlist for us, see it here: https://open.spotify.com/user/nuforceuk/playlist/0GpHtTxBPi7RfOcbfLJq3T
“Conclusion - more than just a pair of sports headphones. The NuForce BE Sport3 can be recommended to all those looking for a light-weight pair of in-ear headphones with a slim profile. They are too good to only be worn in the gym or on the running track. They could also be worn for enjoying an afternoon listening to music.”
“If you are smartly dressed and do not want to miss your music, you will definitely not looking strange with the BE Sport3 in your ears.”
“The build quality is very good, the main materials being metal and poly-carbonate. The main case is made out of metal and features IP55 certification against dust, rain and sweat, among other things.”
“The NuForce Be Sport3 earphones are meant for normal use or in sport activities, they are resistant to dust and moisture, these being IP55 certificated. The Ergonomics are mainly due to the shape of the headphones and the structure of the SpinFit TwinBlade silicone tips.”
“The main feature of these headphones is the sound isolation and the balanced sound offered throughout the use. In addition, the performance of the headsets is not affected by the charge level of the battery.”
“Due to the secure fit in the ear and the ergonomic shape, the NuForce BE Sport 3 is a great companion for sporting activities.”
“The good bass on the NuForce BE Sport3 surprises, even if they do not reach deep into the cellar. Overall, the sound was very clear and high-resolution.”
"These are well balanced earphones that don’t give you plain analytic sound - fun is in first place. I also appreciate the wide space. Second surprise is a good sound location which I hadn’t expected with sports earphones. BE Sport3 are well built, battery will last 10 hours as promised and they support aptX and AAC codec."
“Whether on the road or during sporting activities, in-ear headphones are small, handy and transportable. Unfortunately, this is often reflected in the sound quality. We have thoroughly tested two NuForce models from Optoma and have concluded: space-saving design can also sound good.”
Overall grade: Good

“What these earphones do best is play tracks with a heavy base like "Evil Eye" by Franz Ferdinand so you can feel your heart beating and body start to move during a workout.”
"If you’re looking for a durable, non-expensive, or overly complicated pair of earphones, the NuForce BE Sport3 are ideal as they're comfortable, last longer in more challenging environments, look nice, offer easy listening and can handle powerful music. Of course, they don’t offer audiophile sound quality, but if you want to go for a walk or to the gym for a workout, they will give you reach and energetic sound. Many earphones at a higher cost don’t come anywhere close.”
Ten hours of stamina could potentially see you through an entire week of commutes on a single charge, while rain-, sweat- and dust-resistance means you can use them in all sorts of weather. They fit deeply in your ear, and come with six pairs of wings to ensure they don’t pop out while you’re running. If all that wasn’t enough, the BE Sport3 also comes with AAC and aptX support, to make your favourite songs sound that tiny bit better.
With so many mobiles dumping their headphone socket, it’s refreshing to discover cordless Bluetooth buds that are truly fit for life on the road.

BEST TECH GIFTS! - Ep. 6
“With the sport version – they still have the awesome build quality.”
“These are now just a bit more sport and fitness oriented…they share the same awesome 10 hour battery life and now they have an IP55 rating so protects against dust, water, sweat, grime…”
“Rest in peace AirPods – haven’t lost another pair but I guess that’s because I’ve been using these at the gym now. And these are actually cheaper – less than 80 bucks so bring even more value to your headphone game.”
“The BE Sport3 is a very well thought out design, aimed at the active sports’ person with its vibrant colours and sporty looks. This model might have cut back on the shape of the buds and even the cable has a thinner waist than on the BE6i, but this is not an anorexic BE6i. Whether or not you intend to take part in the Olympics this is a bargain if you like music on the move without getting tangled up in the wires. At £80 this is a very well spec’d model that should make you and your wallet very happy.”
“Compared to the competition, the NuForce BE Sport3 deliver an amazing value and can be easily recommended to all active people who want to bring music to their workouts.”
“Really nicely made and produce a very good quality audio”
“I really like the lightweight design”
“Nice quality audio pick-up from the microphone”
“Optoma do a really nice job of both the build quality and finishing in their earphones.”
“These produce a really good quality audio. They produce a nice and smooth sound and detailed audio”
"The NuForce BE Sport3 are a good quality, and enjoyable sounding set of earphones. Their decent sound, wireless capability and long battery life are a lot to offer in this price range. Add in the dust and moisture resistance rating and, for $80.00, they would make an excellent choice for a dedicated set of workout or jogging phones. The NuForce BE Sport3 make sure you don’t have to settle for second class sound when you’re in the gym or on a run."
“The Optoma NuForce BE Sport3 is the best pair of running headphones at the moment.
"They're comfortable, sound excellent, they're very light and well weighted, and the battery life of 8-10 hours is pretty impressive, considering their tiny size.
“If you're a runner or gym goer who demands decent audio, lightness, comfort and an unshakeable fit, the Optoma NuForce BE Sport3 is right at the top of the heap.”
“These are easily good enough to use as day-to-day headphones, with fantastic clarity and plenty of bass.”
“They are stated to last up to ten hours between charges and I managed this on one occasion, another was slightly more but a third test was around twenty minutes less so ten hours is a fair average.”
“Sound quality throughout the range was consistent.”
“The ear buds are easy to wear and with it comes a plethora of various ear tips that should suit every user.”
“Sound quality was definitely spot on. Trebles were clear and no distortion was heard even when I played music in high volumes. Bass could be deeper, but it still emulated a detailed low frequency response.
“But the best part of the NuForce BE Sport3 is the fact that it manages to give me about 10 hours of playback time just from a single charge!
“The NuForce BE Sport3 brings decent audio output fit for the active user. It may be light on features, but it manages to bring a great aural experience.”
“Optoma has already wowed us with a pair of £350 earbuds this year but what to make of this more modest set aimed at sports? Well first and foremost, they are designed to be ridiculously comfortable, coming as they do with a huge range of earbuds and holders so you can pretty much mix and match for any year. The sound is a little bassy, but that's what you want when you're running and that's the real market for these headphones. For comfort alone they're massively recommendable, though perhaps a little steep in price. They also come with a lovely little pouch which can go on your keys or belt loops. A nice touch.”
“The metal and polycarbonate build combined with the flat connector cables (no tangles) and brightly colored accessories make for an attractive look as well.”
“For the price, you get decent sound and the freedom of wireless Bluetooth audio. They’re comfortable, customizable, water resistant, and, according to my 14-year-old, they’re pretty cool too.”
If you want a comfortable, high quality pair of bluetooth headphones at a good price these are a great choice and the best sub hundred pound pair of headphones I’ve ever used. Highly recommended.
At £80 the Sport3’s are priced over the cheapest available bluetooth headphones available but are so wildly better specced than those headphones they’re not really comparable. Looking directly at other headsets with similar specifications and build quality and the Sport3’s are priced more economically than most of their rivals. In particular I wasn’t able to find any with a comparable battery life and form factor for anywhere near the same price.
“The earphones are superbly designed."
“NuForce have produced not only a great feeling earphone with superb build quality but the sound will easily challenge its wired competitors."
“Bass has the right amount of presence and punch to keep things exciting without being over-powering. Mid-range is uncluttered and clear with great definition and edge. And up top the treble provides plenty of energy and space with any fatigue or sibilance."
“I am struggling to find something wrong with these earphones. They are the best I’ve heard so far. And for the price they’d be a no-brainer for anybody looking to go wireless."
Best for: Everyday wear
"The Optoma NuForce BE Sport3 headphones look stylish enough to wear around town (they come in multiple colors), yet functional enough to remain in place during any workout, even HIIT. The double-tip earbud helps them stay secure — just pick the size that best fits you (you’ll get a few in your pack). When fully charged, they also have a 10-hour battery life, which is longer than the typical six to eight."
Awarded: very good
“Comfortable. Sonorous. Brilliant.”
“The must-have for the trend conscious athletes. Stylish, top sound and in every position they become one with the ear.”
“The mids and highs were full of life and texture, and increased audio quality made our workouts a pleasure.”
“The sound quality is helped along by the tight seal from the multiple choices of tips, proving once again that if you get the basics right, the rest will follow. For the amount of money these cost ($79 on Amazon) you really are getting more than you pay for.”
“If you’re in the market for a pair of wireless workout earbuds, you should strongly consider these. They get the job done in just about every way.”
“Optoma has developed special ear tips called ‘SpinFit TwinBlade’. They sound like a super weapon for an action figure…but the function is really good. With these special ear tips and stabilizers, the NuForce BE Sport3 fits perfectly in the ear during a 60 minute run. Why has no other manufacturer ever come up with such a solution?”
"The NuForce model is more elegantly designed, and thanks to stabilizing wings and special ear tips, it offers more possibilities to find a stable fit even during sporting activities. It is also better protected against dust and water.”
"For exercise and running, fit is excellent and they’re very comfortable to wear for one to two hours at a time. Battery life is good enough to cover about a week’s worth of workouts, so they aren’t something you’ll have to constantly be charging, either."
"Optoma has gotten an IP55 rating for the BE Sport3, protecting them against rain, sweat, and dust...And, like on the BE6i, the ends of both housings are magnetic and can be stuck together when not in use. One last cool touch is that the tips come out from the housings at an angle — this helps prevent the housings from extending too far out from your ear."
"If you’re looking for a great set of workout headphones, the BE Sport3 should be a no-brainer candidate. Heck, even if you’re just flat out looking for a good pair of headphones under $100, they’re easy to recommend on sound quality alone, wireless or not. Add in solid build quality, great isolation, a stable fit, and excellent battery life, and the BE Sport3 become a tremendous deal at $79."
“Optoma’s NuForce BE Sport3 wireless in-ear headphones offer incredible value for $79. They pair easily to two devices at once, remember those pairings when you use the phone or tablet again the next time, offer ten-hour battery life and sound as good as any other in-ear headphones I’ve heard that cost less than $100. Oh, and they have an IP55 water, sweat and dust resistance rating, so they’re perfect for working out.”
"We’ve had up-and-down experiences with Bluetooth earbuds in the past, but came away stunned at how good these sounded. Particularly, it was the lows that came through far better than we anticipated, suggesting that the bass-loving crowd may want to take a look at these before plunking down more on anything with a Beats logo on it."
"At this price point, the BE Sport3 obviously aren’t aiming for audiophile-grade sound, but you’ll get a better balance with these buds than some models that are double the price."
"The main takeaway is the fact they sound good and don’t wiggle too much. That’s what sporty Bluetooth earbuds should do, and we would have no problem choosing these as our running companions."
“Once you have them on, they are among some of the best ear wings I’ve tried in terms of staying put.”
“Seriously great set of in-ear headphones for runners and fitness freaks at a seriously great price.”
"I was quite impressed at how low it went when the bass was really picking up. This is definitely an unexpected "wow"."
"Vocals were seamless or maybe I should say they felt as if I was listening to someone across from me in the office. My overall experience with NuForce BE Sport3 is a good one and for that matter."
"The BE Sport3 are a nice alternative to what you'll find in-store. They are meant for the people who are active and need to keep focus while exercising."
"Speaking of sports, with the right ear buds and if necessary an ear wing, the headphones sit securely and firmly in the ear and do not slip out of the ear even with strong or long lasting shocks…"
“With its revolutionary SpinFit TwinBlade earbuds, the Optoma NuForce BE Sport3’s are a deeply satisfying pair of headphones to listen to for hours at a time, and won’t ever slip out during especially sweaty workout sessions.”
"With the help of the TwinBlade silicone tips, the drivers for the Sport 3’s rest almost directly next to your eardrum, with bass that resonates through from the front of the ear canal to the back to create an immediate, punchy sound that I haven’t found on any other pair of Bluetooth headphones to date."
“After a good workout, I realized that I didn’t need to adjust my BE Sport3 headphones once! I almost forgot they were there, because of the great fit. I wasn’t fumbling with any wires, and they are so lightweight, too!”
"Since the battery lasts up to 10 hours, I didn’t have to charge mine until the end of the week.”
“I also had no problems with interference, either. I placed my phone on a bench and was able to walk around a good amount of the gym, through all the equipment, and maintained super quality sound!”
“With such an exceptional pair of headphones, you’d think the price tag would be sky high…but it’s not! At only $79, these headphones are an excellent deal.”
“They are, beyond a doubt, one of the best wireless headphones on the market and I wholeheartedly recommend them for anyone who wants a pair of wireless earbuds that do it all.”
“NuForce knocked it out of the park with the BE Sport3 headphones. They’re an incredible value for a pair of wireless headphones that sound good, last all day, have a bulletproof build and incredible noise isolation. While they’re not the most dynamic or resolving headphones, NuForce shows us that the future of wireless headphones is a bright one.”
“The NuForce BE Sport3 features excellent sound, build quality and battery life. Overall, they're one of the best wireless headphones you can buy, even if you don't work out.”
"NuForce knocked it out of the park with the BE Sport3 headphones. They're an incredible value for a pair of wireless headphones that sound good, last all day, have a bulletproof build and incredible noise isolation."
"As someone who is constantly moving around on a fast-paced schedule, this is a great earpiece to transition from day-to-day activities to serious workouts."
"The earbuds are able to stay in place during the most intense exercises – including running and CrossFit."
"Surprisingly, after using this during a 10-mile jog, the ears, with wings, remained in place and absorbed all the surrounding sound. It was comfortable even with the tough terrain."
