Wireless Headphone Recommendations

Anyone got any recommendations for wireless headphones?

I find on a treadmill running, jogging and sometimes walking, wired headphones manage to get in the way, I am more concerned about ripping them from my ears than I am with what I am doing at the time.

Similar issue it seems with the wireless headphones that are connected with a wire between each ear. the battery pack, or volume controls etc seem to swing around yanking on my ears.

So I think I need suggestions for true wireless (i think that is the term) where each ear bud is seperate.

Thanks

    I use MPOW - they are linked with a wire but there is nothing on the wire to swing or drag. All the controls are on the ear piece. They're also pretty inexpensive so not a tragedy if you try them and find they're not for you.

    Jabra elite 65t. Can be used mono (right ear only) or paired. Stay in ear fantastic. Great sound, super comfortable (I have issues with ear bud comfort). Can get a full 5hrs on one charge and then about 8 more total from popping them back in the case twice before I have to recharge the whole deal.

    Great sound, flawless Bluetooth connection.

    Not a cheap option by any means, but I like the Bose soundsport earbuds. Since they have different size pieces for the bit that is inserted into your ear I find them much more comfortable than Airpods. Most earbuds are terribly uncomfortable for me.

    I use Aftershockz and they keep about a 3-4 hours use when I’m running longer distances.

    Agreed, fit is good and they never fall out... sound quality is great. I also have the version that has a built in heart rate monitor.

    I got a few pairs got $8 each on clearance somewhere. I figured they're for exercise, they'll get abused, maybe lost, better not to go with expensive ones.

    I have the Aftershokz Bone Conduction Open-Ear Headphones. I chose those because it helps me hear cars around me when I jog and ride my bike

    i just got some Plantronics 3150 - i really like them - i run quite a bit and they don't budge - can still hear my surroundings - traffic and such - are pretty much water proof so sweat won't bother them - middle of the road price wise $100 - they sound great - check them out - https://www.plantronics.com/us/en/product/backbeat-fit-3150
    good luck!

    Agree here... I've own my pair for almost three years... still trucking along. Though a small plastic piece came off. Still works though.

    I second the Aftershokz headphones!! It's worth mentioning I haven't had much experience with them yet, as I just got them about a month ago, but I am loving the device's performance so far!!
    I got the mini-Titanium version, which still fit loosely on my head despite the smaller size.

    I hope you find an option that you really like (and one that's affordable, too!!)
    If you get a chance when decide on a pair, please let us know!! (I don't plan to buy something new soon, of course, but I - and many other people I am sure - are always on the lookout and like to hear some personal testimonies of how good or not-so good a certain product really is!!)

    Cowin E7.

    1. Amazing product reasonably priced.
    2. If you leave feedback from whatever site you purchased they will give you a free gift. Ear buds, hard case, etc..
    3. Top reviews on product and customer service.
    4. I think you only have to charge every 32 hours.
    5. They extend the warranty to 18 months or more(I forgot)when you register them on their site.
    6. I broke mine when I fell asleep with them on 9 months after purchasing. Called customer service and they replaced them no questions asked. Sent a brand new pair out which I received in three days and did not have to ship originals back.

    They earned a customer for life.

    I second these. The wire hasn’t bothered me, and they’re only $20.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.

    So many brands I have never heard of before.

    Time to start looking them up

    I've had the Jabra elite sport for about 2.5 years. At around the time I purchased them I tried several of the top brands (over the course of about 6 months), most notably the bose and Samsung iconx ones. The Jabra elites were by far the best. This was around the time that these were becoming mainstream though (is bragi still around?), so I imagine all have improved. But I still find the Jabra elites to be better for running than the Samsung galaxy buds which are relatively new.
