If it’s music that motivates you, or a podcast you plod to, you’re going to need some headphones that stick with you while you move.
When it comes to running, headphones have to stand the test of time and for some, speed. Whether it’s rough terrain or a smooth road, for quality sound and durability here are our top picks for headphones.
Sweatproof and waterproof, these headphones don’t go inside the ears, but rather conduct sound though the bones. This means you don’t get the discomfort of having something inside your ears and falling out at inopportune moments.
There’s eight hours of music to be had on a charge, including calls, and they weigh less than an ounce, so you’ll barely notice they’re there!
These Bose earbuds do go inside the ear, but stay put. They’re also weather resistant, so running in the rain – or just getting sweaty – won’t make a difference.
You’ll get around six hours from a two-hour charge, which should see you around most runs.
With hands-free control, and the compact nature of these earbuds, means you’ll barely notice they’re on.
The USP of these is the great sound quality, and they come with an impressive 9 hours of listening time, which is perhaps why they have the hefty price tag.
These Bluetooth earbuds are lightweight and can twist 360 degrees so you get the perfect fit for your ear.
They promise some pretty impressive battery life as well – 10 hours on full charge, and 2 hours from just 15 minutes of charging. Perfect if you haven’t got ages to hang around.
These headphones come with a pretty cool charging flip case, with four charges. Completely wireless they will appeal to tech-lovers just for their look. Great for running, the earbuds are sweat, splash and weather resistant, and thanks to the charge case, you’ll have around 20 hours of listening power to hand.
Well that is very true Dan. I used to worry about my partner who wore headphones when cycling into work. Yes it was on cycle trails and the volume 'low' but I still felt it was risky somehow.
I would also say that whatever it is, don't block our your surroundings. I cycle on shared paths and runners who can't hear my 'excuse me' or 'hello' are a menace to both of us!
Those Aftershokz ones sound scary - conducting music through your bones?!! Shudder to think about it.
I would say the best thing I have ever bought are my Apple earbuds. No leads, no hassle, feel comfy, great sound - I would recommend them to anyone.
