A super simple setup (though that’s common with the latest wireless headphones) and a strong sound make these a great option on the market. They stand out because they’re feather-light, and the patented ear tips never budged, even during sweaty, long-distance runs. Plug them in and don’t worry about them again.
These innovative new headphones transport the sound of your music via bone conduction. Worn just in front of the ears, they deliver sound without blocking your ear canal, thus increasing your ability to hear the outside world while also listening to music and running. That could lead to better situational awareness. Plus, they stay in place nicely.
Wireless headphones continue to get better, and the Evo4 is one of the best we have come across. They are lightweight and durable and serve up excellent sound quality. The securely fitted hooks keep the buds in place. And like most wireless earbuds, they are simple to pair with a smartphone, making high-quality music an easy addition to your run.
The Amphipod Music + Belt acts as an unobtrusive waist strap with a two-compartment pocket that can store most smartphones and other essentials like ID, keys and a gel. The elastic material assures both a snug fit to your waist and a lack of irritation even as the miles add up.
From terrestrial radio stations to digitally created ones, this app offers a virtually endless supply of music for even your longest runs. We recommend the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon station, which has a huge variety of uptempo songs dating back to the ’70s and minimal interruption.
This impressive speaker is touted for its power-to-size ratio. Just under 5 ounces with a waistband clip, this is a great option for an on-the- go Bluetooth speaker. Useful for long-distance trail runs or on group runs with friends where headphones are less ideal. Great for ultra race aid station crewing too.
