I desperately need some new headphones for sports / running. Probably bluetooth as the cable is driving me mad on my current pair. I can't wear earbud types as they just fall out.
Love any recommendations - currently looking at Plantronics Backbeat and Aftershockz. Seems risky to spend £100 or so getting these on Amazon without being able to try on but not sure there's anywhere I can test out as it would be unhygienic if they have bits that stick in the ear!
Could live with a wire if that's better (never used bluetooth headphones - if it's unreliable it would get on my nerves). But can't do earbud ones as my ears are the wrong shape and I can't get them to stay in.
I love the skull candy ones, They are comfortable in the ear, stay in and the wire is good length so doesn't get in the way, They are very good at noise blocking so just need to be aware when crossing roads etc.
I have ones made by Plantronics who make the headsets used in lots if commercial stuff. They are Bluetooth. They have a hook to go over your ear. They are sweat proof and stay put all the time. Not cheap but worth the money. I cannot wear in the ear ones at all as I have tiny ears. www.plantronics.com/uk/product/backbeat-fit
I have the Aftershoks ones. Absolutely brilliant, can hear cyclists coming up behind me and also the dogs when they’re lagging behind. Not bad sound and you don’t get that horrible sweaty ear feeling. Seem to cope ok with rain and sweat. Have had mine for about a year, use them four or five times a week in all weather. Would be hopeless on the tube or bus though because of sound leakage.
