Do you have any recommendations for wireless / bluetooth headphones for running?
I've been using the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium bone-conducting headphones for the last 8 months and would highly recommend them for running. You can still hear traffic and people around you while listening to music or podcasts etc. They can be had for around £75.00 right now, I paid £109.00 if you look around. A newer model is available, Trekz Air, but that is £149.99.
I don’t use anything, despite my wife buying me an iPod nano and headphones for running, I can’t be doing with the faff of them.
Trying to find a way to write this that makes sense but does the sound sound like 'real' sound - if you know what I mean? Is it the same as listening to music through an in-ear bud?
No not like an earbud, I use to run with headphones like that and I could hear every footstep through my body, thump thump.
The only way I can describe it is that it's like having speakers near your ears but you can still hear around you. If you're in a very loud environment the sound can be drowned out but on my running/cycling routes, they work wonderfully. The sound sounds great to me but I'm no music buff. You can also use them for phone calls during use. Aftershokz review!
