There are many who believe that music is performance-enhancing. Whether this is true or not, we dare not say, but music can make the run a little more manageable and, if nothing else, drown out the pressured breathing that reveals poor fitness. There are two ways to go when choosing headphones for your run. Either you can choose an on-ear model or an in-ear model. Both models work well for running.

In-ear headphones

In-ear headphones are a popular type of headphones that are ideal for exercise - especially running. They're light and comfortable to wear and has a great fit in your ears so they won't fall out, even when you're moving around. Our in-ear headphones are also wireless, which makes them even more comfortable to use as you don't have to worry about wires hanging down from your ears.

Most of our in-ear headphones feature active noise cancellation, which can be switched on or off as you wish. With active noise cancellation on you can listen to your favorite music or audiobook without being disturbed by ambient noise, but you can also run safely on busy paths and roads when you need to be aware of traffic and your surroundings.

All in all, in-ear headphones are a good choice for running as they are lightweight, comfortable and have good sound quality and isolation. They help you stay focused on your training and get the most out of your run.

On-ear headphones

On-ear headphones are another popular type of headphones that are also suitable for running. On-ear headphones sit on the ear, but not inside the ear like in-ear headphones do.

This means that they are larger and more visible, but can also be more comfortable to wear for longer periods. An advantage of on-ear headphones is the sound quality, as they have more space to accommodate larger speakers. They therefore provide a fuller and deeper sound than in-ear headphones, making them ideal for listening to music while running.

Our on-ear headphones are wireless, so you can move freely without worrying about wires. Another advantage of on-ear headphones is that they have a great fit, making them stable on your ear even when you're moving. They won't fall out when you run, nor will they disturb you as they don't sit completely inside your ear. You can therefore run with them on without being bothered by them.

Our on-ear headphones are a good choice for running as they have a good sound quality and fit, and they are also wireless. Whether you choose on-ear over in-ear is mainly a matter of habit and whether you prefer to wear the headphones inside or outside your ears.
