There are some common factors to consider: noise-cancelling or noise-isolating, comfort, wire or wireless, good fit (not falling out so often), bass response, full-range sound, purity, clarity of treble. Specifically if you are workout enthusiast, you just need secure fit and good bass or wireless earbuds (if you don’t like wire around your body).
