Headphones designed for runners and athletes are all about staying in place during your activity. Whether it’s cushioned foam holding earbuds in, or clips or bands that can help keep things steady, if your primary use for headphones is sports, you’ll want to be sure they come with the ability to hold them in place. But there are other cool features you can find built right into headphones, including water or sweat resistance, heart rate monitoring, personal coaching, and more.
Jaybird’s X2 Bluetooth Wireless earbuds have been a top choice for fitness enthusiasts, and for good reason. No wires connecting to your mobile device, excellent fit, sweat-proof design, decent battery life and high quality sound. The new Jaybird Freedom earbuds take the X2’s best features to the next level, with a new micro size metal design for improved fit and sound, and a clip-on external battery for 8-hours of use between charges.
I test a lot of headphones, and while just about any pair you get will insert music into your ears, when it comes to higher priced headphones, you want to make sure the sound quality is top notch. Do the new Sony MDR-XB950BT over-ear wireless headphones deliver?
