It seems to pop-up from time to time on various running blogs and message boards, but everybody is always on the lookout for the perfect headphones to wear while running. I know I would love some headphones that sound good, don’t cut out when I sweat on them and don’t have a cord that I could wrap around my entire body a couple times.
I recently came across the website for Jaybird gear and they have a line of headphones that are designed for the athlete. I don’t have a pair of these and they seem kind of pricey, but they also look pretty cool.
There are 3 models:
- Tiger Eyes: These are the cheapest in their line at $89. They include a built-in microphone and volume control so you can use them with your phone/music player.
- Endorphin Rush: These ones are the next step up, at $99. They have a cord management clip to keep the cord secured behind your head and not flapping around everywhere.
- Freedom: The fanciest in the line, these ones are bluetooth stereo headphones, so you can be cordfree, take calls and listen to your music. They’re also the priciest at $129-$159.
All of their products come with a lifetime warranty against sweat though. How’s that for a promise to athletes?!
Have any of you tried these? Would any of you pay that much for sport headphones?
