The virtue of having remixes in your workout playlist is that they offer the best of both worlds: songs you already love and music that sounds brand new. With their help, you can feel both comfortable and motivated at the same time.

The current crop of remixes offers a cornucopia of different sounds. On the pop front, you'll find a scorcher from Jessie J and a monster hit from Mark Ronson. On the rock side of things, you can check out hits from Sheppard and Imagine Dragons that have been re-worked for the dance floor. Elsewhere in the mix, there are multi-layered treats like David Guetta remixing himself or a song by Mr. Probz that was remixed first by Robin Shulz and updated later by T.I. and Chris Brown.

Apart from their familiarity, the advantage of most remixes is that they emphasize rhythm and groove-which help them get more spins in the club and gym alike. To that end, the tunes below should make it super easy to top off your workout mix. Just grab the tracks you already love, press play, and let the beats work their magic.

Jessie J & 2 Chainz - Burnin' Up (Aero Chord Remix) - 100 BPM

Sheppard - Geronimo (Benny Benassi Remix) - 127 BPM

Fitz & The Tantrums - The Walker (Cobra Starship Remix) - 130 BPM

Carly Rae Jepsen - I Really Like You (Blasterjaxx Remix) - 129 BPM

Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars - Uptown Funk (Dave Aude Remix) - 124 BPM

Big Data & Joywave - Dangerous (Spacebrother's Electro Stomp Remix) - 126 BPM

Penguin Prison - Calling Out (Elephante Remix) - 128 BPM

David Guetta & Sam Martin - Dangerous (David Guetta's Banging Remix) - 128 BPM

I bought these headphones to use on a cross-country flight for work, since I wanted a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones. I really enjoyed them, they are very comfortable, and enclose my ears completely. The noise-cancelling function works really well, it made the engine noise disappear, and I was able to enjoy the movie I was watching without turning the volume all the way up.Great headphones for the money. I would definitely recommend them. check the products HERE :
