The Best Bluetooth Headphones for Running:
Could this be it?

Having the best Bluetooth headphones for running would be a dream come true. They would be water and sweat proof, provide the best sound, and would remain secure in our ears.  Perfect companions to aid us on long, arduous journeys and keep us motivated when we start running out of steam. There are two models that are seen as the best on the market when it comes to Bluetooth headphones.


The things you always look for are excellent sound quality, a durable set, and maximum comfort. The following two Bluetooth headphones have it all and more. They really could be the best Bluetooth headphones for running.

Best Bluetooth Headphones for Running


#1 - Under Armour Wireless Headphones

The Under Armour Wireless Headphones are created to handle even the most intense and extreme workouts, as they are waterproof and sweat proof. Protection provided by moisture resistant layers. The sweat couldn’t cause damage if it wanted to.

They use TwistLock technology to prevent them from falling out of your ears, so even on the most vigorous of runs you know they will stay secure. The built in mic allows you to accept calls on the go. You’ll never be stopping and starting again.

These Bluetooth headphones have it all when it comes to sound. They don’t just meet expectations -- they exceed them. The sound is so clear and crisp that it is almost otherworldly and gives you the feeling of attending a live concert.

Every sound and instrument is crystal clear. You won’t lose your rhythm with these. Runs and workouts will never suffer interruptions and poor quality again. The bass is smooth and not so loud that it overtakes the rest of the music. Truly a set to enjoy and cherish.

#2 - Playtronics BackBeat Fit

These spectacular headphones really put the run in running. The bass is cool and keeps the beat steady without overpowering the smooth treble, allowing for a chilled balance between the two and a general quality that you are definitely going to love. You won’t be able to get enough. Running will become second nature in no time.

You’ll be running at a fast pace, with an active beat that will keep you stimulated and motivated to keep going forward. Remotes on each side allow for you to switch the tunes and keep the volume in your control as well as picking up calls as you go. 

The Playtronics BackBeat Fit headphones are sweat proof as well, so you can rest assured that these beauties won’t be slipping off any time soon. Even with a vigorous and intense workout, they will stay firm and strong on your head. They’re fighters, just like you. They have eight hours of battery life, so that they can keep going with you, and their smart hibernation mode can keep the battery fresh for up to six months – not that you’ll be leaving them for that long.

They can be charged via laptop, which makes things easy when you’re surfing the web in the evening. Comfortable, durable, and practical, you won’t regret picking these up.

Which One is the Best Bluetooth
Headphones for Running?

No headphones were made equal, except maybe these two. With equal sound quality and fantastic durability, it can be hard to choose between these two models. Really, it’s all down to personal preference, starting with whether you like earbuds or headphones more.

If you’re not sure, then the best way is to try a pair of each on and see how you feel. Either way, they’re bound to change your exercising life, for the better, and forever.
