46 Headphone Designs for Runners

From Sweat-Proof Headphones to Wireless Custom Earbuds

— July 29, 2014 — Lifestyle
These innovative headphones for runners cater to joggers that often listen to music while they run to maintain their focus. These clever earphones are designed for functionality and durability while on-the-go.

Many runners enjoy listening to music on their smartphone or an MP3 player while they run. That's because music is often a source of inspiration and motivation for many runners that enjoy tuning the world around them out while they jog. Many companies are designing headphones that are specifically targeted to stand up to aggressive training, wear and tear and even rain. Earphones that are sweat-proof, cordless, wireless and that even have fitness trackers are all innovations companies like Adidas and Beats are incorporating into their headphone designs. This way runners can enjoy listening to music without compromising their running.
