Running is not only more popular than ever but also more fun thanks to music streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music. You can now create a custom playlist filled with songs that are perfect for your running sessions. You can even tap into running playlists by other users or share your own list of songs with others.
While earphones work great for listening to music while running, you will want to pick up a pair of Bluetooth earphones for maximum comfort. These wireless earphones will allow you to enjoy your runs more without sacrificing the music-listening part of the experience. These top Bluetooth earphones make a great running companion.
Jabra Sport Pace
The Jabra Sport Pace mixes affordability with good listening experience. It may not have the sound clarity of more expensive pairs, but there is plenty of bass and the earphones are sweat and moisture-resistant. The Jabra Sport Pace is priced just under $100, so it is also among the most affordable Bluetooth earphones available on the market.
You will either love or hate the Sport Pace’s design. The red-and-black combination makes it very similar to Beats by Dr. Dre, but other colors are available too. There are some unique design features that make the Jabra Sport Pace very comfortable to wear. You can even control music playback from the built-in remote, plus the Sport Pace works as a headset as well.
As mentioned before, sound clarity isn’t the pair’s strongest suit. The Jabra Sport Pace is designed to be bass-forward, so this is the pair of earphones to get if you love bass-rich music while running. All those pumped up electronic tracks will come to life through the drivers in the Jabra Sport Pace.
The Jaybird X3 isn’t designed specifically for sports and outdoor activities. That said, the X3 offers the best fit you will find in a pair of Bluetooth earphones. The exterior wing is removable, but it’s best to keep it on if you’re using the Jaybird X3 while running. The tips are also comfortable, plus you can get Jaybird sport tips for better comfort and security.
The Jaybird X3 doesn’t only offer superb battery life it also delivers stunning sound quality. There is a companion app that you can install on your phone if you want more control over EQ, but the earphones are crisp and well-balanced out of the box.
Bose Soundsport Wireless
We really can’t talk about earphones for running without talking about the Bose Soundsport Wireless. It is the most expensive pair on our list, but these earphones are worth every cent. You get the best noise canceling feature available on a Bluetooth headset, along with good build quality, comfortable fit, and high-quality output.
The only downside of going with the Soundsport Wireless is battery life. The battery on this pair of earphones is smaller, but you can still get a good run in at the end of the day before you have to charge the pair. Besides, you can wear the Soundsport Wireless throughout the day and have the best sound quality whenever you want to listen to music.
