What to Consider

When shopping for a new pair of wireless headphones, there are a few things you’ll want to consider to ensure that they’ll make it through your toughest workouts. One of the most important factors to consider is sweat- and water-resistance. This will help prevent damage to your headphones, particularly if you’re running in the summer or if you get caught in the rain.

The design of the actual headphone is also important. If you choose an over-ear design, you will want it to be super plush and comfortable on your ears, as well as having padding on the headband portion so your head isn’t hitting against hard plastic as you move. If you select an in-ear model, make sure that it either has adjustable silicone tips, and/or a wing that tucks into the folds of the ear to prevent it from falling out.

Finally, consider how the headphones are controlled. A single button or voice control will be the easiest to use without pausing your run. These features also make it so you don’t have to fiddle with your phone as you move.

How We Selected

To find the best wireless headphones for runners on the market, we researched the most popular models available and considered their design, sound quality, battery life, durability, comfort, and price. We also consulted previous testing on running headphones conducted by Runner’s World editors to determine the most crucial features when choosing a pair of wireless headphones for runners. We then looked at both expert reviews and customer ratings, written by people who’ve bought these wireless headphones on sites like Amazon, to settle on the products you’ll find below, all of which have average user ratings of four out of five stars or higher.
