Best headphones for running

Written by Claire Maxted

April 27, 2020

There’s only one pair of wireless headphones runners need to buy in 2020 in my opinion…but you might think differently, let me know in the YouTube comments 🙂 every ear is different!

This is a head to head test of the Jaybird Vistas vs the Aftershokz Aeropex, both wireless headphones for runners around the same price point but with very different listening experiences, especially for trail and ultra runners.

The most vital feature of a pair of wireless headphones for runners is that they don’t fall out. Nowadays they all connect easily via bluetooth and the weight is negligible, so after that you have battery life, ease/speed of recharge, price point and sound quality. This review covers all those things and more, plus there’s a handy comparison table at the end of the film for detailed info so you can make the most informed choice possible.
