4 Headphones You Need to Try for Running Season

by Cathy Carr

A woman wearing headphones and a jogging outfit smiles and stretches her leg.

It’s finally running season! Grab those sneakers, get a fresh pair of socks, and don’t forget your amazing running headphones.

Wait, you don’t have running headphones? You are still running around with an old hand-me-down pair that’s half frayed and looks like an accident waiting to happen? Oh...

That’s no way to bring sonic superiority and speed to your workouts. If you want to work out at your best, your headphones need to be at their best. Here are just a few headphones that can help you take your music – and running – game to the next level this summer.


1. Bose SoundSport

From the fine folks at Bose comes the Bose SoundSport, a set of earbuds ready to work as hard as you do. They work in conjunction with the Tile app, so you’ll never lose them, and they’re designed to make sure they stay in place during your workout. 

They also are compatible with both Bluetooth and NFC devices, and are both sweat- and weather-resistant. Take your workout wherever you want, because with Bose, you have the freedom to do so.  


2. Klipsch R5 Wireless Headphones

The quality of Klipsch, now in a wireless, exercise-friendly design: Say hello to the R5.

Get ready to hit some personal records, because these headphones come with Klipsch’s patented oval ear tips and an eight-hour battery life perfect for the marathon runner we all have hidden inside of us. IPx4 rated to resist sweat, moisture, and rain, and ear wings to keep them in your ear, these headphones are ready to run. Well, they are ready for you to run, and to stick around for the ride.

3. LG Tone Triumph

Get ready to triumph over the trail, move faster up the mountains, and race through the roads with the LG Tone Triumph.

With an around-the-neck style – and in a eye-catching black and red color – these headphones boast an impressive 13 hours of music playback, and all of that off just a 2-hour charge time.


4. Sony WI-SP600N

Sony’s WI-SP600N has your best interest in mind no matter where or how you work out. Noise canceling technology blocks out the sounds of that guy grunting as he slams down the weights next to you, but Ambient Sound Mode can mix your music with the sounds around you, giving you a safe way to run outside and still hear traffic.

They are also IPX4 rated, and were tested in real workouts to make sure they fit and stay in any ear. Throw your toughest workout at these – they are ready for everything you need them to hold up through.
