Best Running Headphones and Earbuds for 2024


sony link budsThe LinkBuds are, in a way, Sony’s answer to Apple’s standard AirPods. Although they’re not as good as Sony’s flagship WF-1000XM5 noise-isolating earbuds, they offer a discreet, innovative design and a more secure fit than the AirPods, as well as good sound and very good voice-calling performance.

EarFun Free Pro 2: We had the EarFun Free Pro 2 earbuds on this list. They are still available on discount and are good earbuds for running, but EarFun has released a new earbud. EarFun Free Pro 3 BudsWhich is definitely an upgrade.

JBL Live Pro 2Over the past few years, JBL has launched some great true-wireless earbuds, but none of them really excited me. That’s all finally changing with the arrival of new earbuds from the Samsung-owned brand. Live Pro 2 And live free 2 Buds. Both buds — the Live Pro 2 have stems while the Live Free 2 have a pill-shaped design — offer a comfortable fit along with strong noise cancelling, very good sound quality and voice-calling performance, plus a number of strong features, including multipoint Bluetooth pairing, an IPX5 splash-proof rating and wireless charging.

Shure Aonic 215 II: Shure’s Aonic 215 II are the audiophile’s equivalent to the Beats Powerbeats Pro. They have a hook that wraps over your ear, and they stay in my ears very securely (even more securely than the Powerbeats Pro earbuds). Like the Beats model, they have a jumbo charging case. The interesting thing about them is that the Bluetooth module is detachable. (I liked the physical control buttons they have instead of touch controls.) As the name suggests, the Aonic 215 true wireless noise-isolating earphones join Shure’s SE215 buds, the $99 model in its line of earbuds that have detachable cables. The modules, which can be purchased separately for $189, are designed to drive any Shure earbud that has a detachable cable, including the $899 SE846.

Sennheiser Sport True WirelessThe Sport True Wireless Earbuds are basically Sennheiser’s CX true wireless earbuds with sport fins (for a more secure fit) and improved durability. They have an IP54 rating which makes them splash-proof and dust-resistant. These aren’t noise-cancelling earbuds, but they do have an awareness mode that allows ambient sound to leak into the buds so you can hear what’s going on around you for safety reasons. They use Bluetooth 5.2 and have support for the AAC and AptX audio codecs. Battery life is rated at up to 9 hours at moderate volume levels with an additional two charges in the charging case (there’s no wireless charging).

Sony Float RunSony’s Float Run are a unique take on “off-ear” headphones, which is another way of describing open earbuds that sit away from your ears. I can’t say these have the best sound — the bass is weak — but they fit securely and comfortably on my head. They’re designed for people who don’t like cramming earbuds into their ears, and runners who want to hear the outside world for safety reasons.

Skullcandy Push Active: With their ear-hook design, the Skullcandy Push Active are basically a more affordable version of the Beats Powerbeats Pro, and they fit in my ears a little better than the Powerbeats Pro. I’m not usually a fan of ear-hook style buds, but this model is one of the better ones.
