Best Headphones for Running

Looking for the best headphones for running?  You look at me, and you don’t think runner. I could only wish I had the body of a runner – someday people, someday.

I actually love jogging, it’s just that I am so inconsistent maybe I should fix that because I totally need more things that I can just zone out and do.  When I run there are a few things that come with me….

Running with My Labradoodle

Meet Mister. He is a 6 month old Labradoodle. We’ve had him for 4 months and this week he finally learned to like the leash. While I would love to say he can walk on a leash – it’s more along the lines of … he can run on a leash. I got the run of my life the other night being led by this 40+ lb lug of hair.  This is him laughing after our outing. Not cool Mister, not cool.

My Toddlers

Occasionally I’ll have my toddlers – but I try to not have to bring them. I recently purchase a Schwinn double jogging stroller used so they could come along when needed. They love it – and their 60+ lbs does add to the workout.

My iPhone

Music is what keeps me and on pace. I crank up Pandora to Pink and then start C25k app –  I’ve been using the C25K app to keep me motivated.  I am only on week 3, but will give a review once I complete. So far I am loving it.

While I can totally run without the toddlers and the dog, I can’t be without my iPhone. Me and silence, just don’t work. Low and behold the Apple earpods that came with the iPhone 5 have gone missing.

While I liked those so much better than the cheap headphones I have now – I wanted to see what headphones for runners options are out there. Based on reviews, here are what people are rating as the best head phones to run with.

Bose sport headphones – I know what you are thinking… expensive. Yes, they are. But I will say, anyone I know who owns Bose speakers raves about them. The sound is impeccable – and by the reviews of these Bose sport headphones – looks like these live up to the Bose brand.
