I'm plodding on with my attempts at running, happily not doing much more thank 5k, but I'd like to treat myself to some better headphones. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm thinking maybe wireless? And over the ear? Also, I have my tragus pierced if that makes any difference (sometimes hard earned buds don't fit like they should!). Thanks!

I use Jabra over ear, wireless headphones and they are brilliant!

Thanks Strawberry. I'm off to Amazon to investigate!

I'm looking at Bose wireless...their wired version are the most comfortable I've tried but the wire is getting tangled up with the dog's lead.

Bose Sport! I have tried many many cheap versions and have spent more money on those than I have on one pair of Bose Sport.

I don't know how they would fare with a piercing like yours though as they kind of hook inside the ear err... flaps (?) as well as the ear canal , but pretty sure they do an over ear version.

Plantronics Backbeat Fit are pretty good. 8 hours between charge as well.

Trex Titanium by Aftershokz...

Bone conducting so safe for running outdoors and no issues around ear buds fitting smile

Bluetooth so no wires too...

Had mine for a couple of months after trying all sorts including sennheiser sport with fins, yurbuds, and others....

Definitely best I've tried...

Which did you get and how are you getting on with them? I'm thinking about putting a a pair on my Christmas hints list.
