By  |  0 Comments

When it comes to choosing the best running headphones, it all depends on the wearer.
While some might opt for the best wireless headphones that have battery staying power, others are looking for comfortable fabrics, a stylish design or simply banging volume.
Here’s some of the best headphones we’ve reviewed for 2021.


Urbanista Athens sports headphones, £119



These snug little wireless numbers stay intact no matter how much you’re jumping around outside, during a swim or at the gym.
Aptly named after the city that hosted the very first Olympic Games, these in-ear buds boast offer a total of 32 hours playtime, with an additional three charges from the small and sleek carry case.
Sound is crystal clear and bass orientated, providing an audio experience for fitness-buffs to help push you through that extra mile.
They’re also completely waterproof with an IP67 rating so swim, ski, surf, shower or sweat all you like –  these headphones will stand up to the test.
Moreover, the silicone buds feel lightweight on the ears and feature touch controls that connect to your voice assistant for hands-free assistance.
The only downside is it can take a bit of fiddling to get them sitting comfortably on both ears, and they’re not comfortable enough to sleep with on and sometimes one of the buds plays sounds slower than the other ear.


Jabra Elite 45H On-ear Headphones, £89.99





When it comes to supreme battery life on a budget, the Jabra Elite’s boast up to 50 hours of sound, making them perfect for those who are lazy when it comes to charging.
These on-ear headphones are a comfortable solution for running enthusiasts and are compact, foldable and light-weight, making them perfect for long-haul commutes.
Whilst boasting an elegant and simple style, they perch comfortably on the ear and provide a decent sound including passive noise cancellation (PNC).
In addition, users can also customise their music with the Jabra Sound+ app, and personalise how they hear the tunes they love too, through the MySound app.


JBL Live Pro+ TWS headphones, £154





Never short on energy, the Black Live PRO + TWS allow you to take your workouts to the next level without distraction.
Fitting perfectly into your ears, with comfortable stalks which you can barely feel, these powerful earbuds provide ambient sound and a good fit.
The noise of the world is utterly silenced with the fully immersive sound experience, excellent clarity and up to 32 hours of battery life.
If you love a punchy bass and headphones that won’t loosen during the most gruelling workouts, then these are the ones for you.



 Edifier TWS1 Pro, £49.99



Lightweight and ergonomically designed for a snug fit, these true wireless earbuds carry a IP56 rated housing for dust and water resistance, making them perfect for use when running.
Even if you are running a marathon there is plenty of charge – up to 12 hours playback, an additional 40 hours using the charging case and supports fast charging in 40 minutes.
Bang up to date with the latest technologies. Bluetooth v5.2, provides a faster transmission, lower power consumption and a more stable link coupled with second generation of Qualcomm aptX Adaptive Technology ensures the lossless and low-latency transmission of audio.
