It seems like Apple AirPods are a great option for running as they stay in the ear perfectly [1][2], have great sound quality [5], and don't fall out [9]. People also say that they can leave their phone at home since the AirPods connect to it automatically [2]. Furthermore, the noise cancelling feature of the AirPods Pro makes them a great choice for those who want to be able to hear ambient noise [9].
People say that Jabra Elite Sport Wireless Earbuds have amazing sound quality [3], and that they don't feel like they're going to fall out [3]. They are also good with sweat [3], and offer great battery life [6]. Compared to other wireless earbuds in the notes, Jabra Elite Sport Wireless Earbuds seem to offer a good balance between sound quality and durability, while also staying secure in the ears during running.
Plantronics BackBeat Fit seems to be a great choice for earphones for running. It's earhooks keep them in place while running [3], and it has decent sound quality [6]. Additionally, it has no noise cancellation [7], so you can still hear your surroundings. People say that it's good with sweat [3], and its battery life is decent [7].
It seems people are quite happy with the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium headphones [1] for running. They have excellent bone conduction technology which allows you to still hear the world around you [1], and they stay put comfortably when running [3]. They also have good sound quality [1], and some people even use them for marathon training and races [5]. People seem to appreciate their toughness and good battery life too [3]. However, it's important to note that they don't provide noise cancellation, and the sound quality isn't great when compared to other options such as AirPods Pro [8] or Jabra Elite Active 75t [8].
It seems that Taotronics Wireless On-Ear Headphones are an option for running, as they have Bluetooth which apparently is steady and doesn't move around [5], and good sound quality [7]. People say that they are tough and have a good battery life [3], making them a good choice for average runs. Compared to Aftershokz wireless earbuds, the Taotronics Wireless On-Ear Headphones don't provide the same situational awareness as the earbuds don't block out sound, but you can still hear your surroundings [5].
