What’s the worst thing about going for a run? Running you say? Well, that’s true, but the ignoring all the physical problems that come with running, the worst thing about going for a run has to be the cable on your headphones. It swings back and forth as you move, it gets tangled up in everything, it catches on anything you run by, it’s just an annoyance. Fortunately, we live in a world where technology rules all and you can get a pair of Bluetooth wireless headphones perfect for your running. You can find wireless Bluetooth headphones in both in-ear and on-ear configurations depending on what your preference is. Running headphones are designed for active use. They are, at the very least, sweat resistant if-not fully water proof so that you don’t damage them when you’re sweating during your run. Another perk of running headphones is that they stay in and on your ears better than the average pair of headphones. They often have specially designed eartips to stick in your ear canals better or ear hooks that wrap around your actual ear to keep them secure while you run. You have a lot of options to choose from for a pair of Bluetooth running headphones, here are our 3 favorites.
