If you listening to music while running you no doubt have experience with several different earphone and player combinations. There are several Wireless Earbuds For Running strategies and products available that are geared with the runner in mind. Determining the best earbuds for running is of course a matter of personal preference, but listed below are two of my favorite systems:
For the runner, not having to deal with wires is a definite advantage for obvious reasons. There are several brands of bluetooth enabled headphones that are favorites of runners. My two personal favorites, particularly in the affordable price of about $40 are the Motorola S9 and the Arriva Cordless iPod Shuffle Headphones. One downside of the Motorola is that they are proven not to be very water-resistant, so if you run in wet weather or your earbuds tend to get soaked from perspiration; these eventually be rendered inoperable, based on multiple user experiences.
The Arriva Cordless iPod Shuffle Headphones are my personal favorites because of the simplicity of the concept. Not a wireless in the sense that there is a remote signal transmitted by the player and then received wirelessly by the earbuds. The Arriva are designed to carry the player, in this case a 1GB iPod Shuffle on-board, docked conveniently in a secure port incorporated into the earbud behind-the-head bracket. The earbuds themselves are priced at around $35, but this system also required the purchase of the Shuffle, which adds another $35 to the overall cost. The Shuffle is limited in its feature set, but as part of a dedicated running system, it’s hard to beat.
