Light as a bird and tough as iron – RUN are true wireless headphones. … What’s the point of true wireless sport headphones if your buds can’t handle sweat, rain, or mud? RUN are water resistant sport headphones that can handle all of the above – and then some 

JAYBIRD RUN

I first met the Jaybird company last year at the Arnold Health and Fitness Expo in Columbus Ohio. I was able to demo one of their other products but this past year I became more interested in the Jaybird RUN due to the additional features that they possessed. The RUN is a truly wireless headphone with superior battery life, quality sound and secure fit that will make them an integral part of your workout program. They have a four-hour battery life with the additional eight hours charging case system that will give you a grand total of 12 hours of music. It also has a 5-minute fast charge that will give you an intense one-hour workout possibility if you forgot to charge before you left the house. They have an impressive fit due to the ear tips and fins creating improved security, customized anatomical fit and comfort at all times. The Jaybird App can give you the ability to customize your base/treble depending on your music preferences. The units are both sweat and water resistant (even after dropping in sink) and were able to handle a high intense interval cycling workout with required hydration had no effect on the music quality. Two additional features which I think are important as you can have just one of the earpieces which improve the safety of your workout and present surroundings and they possess Find My Buds feature which would help you locate your headphones if you happen to lose them within a reasonable proximity. As for the cost, I feel their reasonably priced at $179 and are comparable to many of the other earbuds based upon price performance and features. The Jaybird RUN are an excellent high-performance sound earbud that has an impressive secure customized feel and excellent battery life with a few additional added bonus features.
