Many people are becoming a little more health conscience and starting to work out a lot more to be get healthier. Some find it better to do exercises, such as running or jogging, with a little music to help set the mood. Well, when running or jogging, you can't just use any kind of headphones. The headphones with the plastic band that go over tend to fall off easily, regular ear buds headphones tend to fall out of ears unless they are fitted deeply in, which can cause discomfort. This creates a problem, if you can't use regular headphones for running and jogging, what can you use?
The good news is that there are special headphones designed specifically for sports and exercising. There are many different types of headphones that are designed for being used during physical activity. Many physically active people have gone through set after set of headphones and wasted hundreds of dollar on headphones that just do not work for running. The Adidas PMX 680 Sports Earbud Headphones have a five out of five customer rating and are considered the best headphones for runners.
These headphones feature an ergonomic design for great comfort and fit. The earpieces are ear bud design with a neckband for a secure fit. These headphones also have high output drivers for great sound quality. The cable is equipped with a sound control device for easy access to volume control. The ear buds, neckband and cable are sweat and rain resistant and the cable is reinforced to withstand pulls and jerks from running and exercising. This headset also has a short cable, best if the device that the headphones are plugged into is worn on the arm.
However, if you need something with a longer cord, the next best set of headphones would be the Sennheiser PMX70 Sport Line Stereo Neckband Headphones. There isn't much difference between these two sets of headphones, the Sennheiser set has a four out of five stars customer rating. They are also very durable, have high sound quality, ergonomically designed for comfort and have a four foot cable. The longer cable is better for those who tend to where their devices on belts or in pockets. The Sennheiser headphones do not have a volume control on the cable but do come with a cable clip.
Over all, the Adidas PMX 680 Sports Earbud Headphones are the best headphones for runners and not too badly priced. The only drawback for this set would be the shorter cable if you do not wear your device on your arm. The Sennheiser PMX70 Sport Line Stereo Neckband Headphones may not be rated as highly as the Adidas set, but they are very close to being tied with them for first place. They both have most of the same features, you just have to decide if you want a short or long cable and if you can do without volume control on the cable. Either way, each of these headphone sets are well worth the money if you need them while running or doing other types of physical activity.
