Posted in Reviews (updated on 08/7/2020)

Picture of the best in wireless running sports headphones at PB Tech NZ

Wireless earphones are great, effortlessly connecting to your favourite playlists and holding their charge for that marathon-length run! And let's face facts - there is nothing more annoying than going for a run and having your headphone cord aggressively slap you in the face every 2 seconds... Thankfully, times have changed and there are a bunch of new options here at PB Tech that'll have you happily running around listening to your favourite tunes :)

So the question is... which are the best wireless headphones for running?

With earbuds designed for sports, the sweatiest of runners, and made to fit the oddest shaped ears, we round up a range of the top models designed specifically for running in 2020 and beyond. All of the models in our list have proven audio ability and solid Bluetooth range, making them ideal for sports & fitness use.

1. Powerbeats PRO Shop Now >

Kicking off our list we have a new Beats and Apple collaboration and they're absolutely the best option for those who want great audio for fitness, they're like a sporty version of Apple Airpods.

Using the latest Apple H1 technology in these buds giving you extremely efficient wireless for a better connection, improved range and excellent sound quality.  PowerBeats Pro have a reinforced design for sweat and water resistance with adjustable, secure-fit ear hooks for added comfort and stability - they really work too, stopping the buds from falling out whilst running.

Each earbud is capable of up to 9 hours of listening time so you can keep your music going while you push yourself to the limits, but, should you forget to charge ahead of your workout, a quick 5-minute charge gives around 1.5 hours of playback

With hands-free controls via “Hey Siri” on compatible iOS devices, or a simple push the 'b' button, you'll be connected while you go go go!

Check out the new PowerBeats PRO range today, available in Classic BlackNavy BlueMoss Green & Ivory White.
