If you love running or jogging or simply being out with nature and hiking, or even just a walk to get away from things, but hate the idea of ear buds or regular earphones, then here are some of the best headphones for running, or walking or jogging.
It can be nice to run or jog with your music, but many times this can become difficult keeping the ear buds in your ears with movement or for when you start sweating, they can cause irritation in your ear, or you have to resort to bigger traditional running headphones and they can interfere with traffic noises, which you do need to hear. So, check these out for great ideas, and be comfortable the next time you go running.
There has been rave reviews for some new running headphones that are on the market now. They are basically a comfy headband with built-in speakers. No more adjusting ear buds that tend to fall out when you run, or get sweaty and fall out. Many people complain of regular earphones basically getting in the way. So, this product is one to try.
You can get them from their website at runphones.com for Winter or Summer wear. These are great for those hard core runners who like to run in the winter, as they have these headbands in a soft warm fleece. But they also make them in lighter weight sweat wicking material for those warmer days. No more trying to stuff your headphones under a big toque! Just throw on the headband with the built-in speakers and if need be a toque over that, for those hard core dead of winter runners!
These headbands come in different colors and solve the problem for many runners who love to listen to music while out for a run. It is also a great sweatband, and it wicks away moisture. The little speakers are embedded in the band and are comfortable. You just take them out when you need to wash your headband, and then put them back in after. Easy.
