I am considering the Jabra Elite Active 65+ as I have an upcoming half marathon. My AirPods won’t last long enough anymore and they don’t stay in my ears well. What else would you get for running?

Or maybe the Anker Liberty Air? Anyone try those?

I use my airpods for running. They fit the shape of my ear really well and don't fall out.

I wouldn't spend too much money on earphones just for running. I would just get some random bluetooth earbuds with an over-ear hook for added running comfort. That's what I used before I got airpods. E.g.: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JNX7LBS/

I will be using these to train too...and I absolutely hate running so I want to get something to encourage myself. Lol. Maybe I’ll wait for amazon prime day to see what is cheap that day.

Airpods are definitely the best. It looks like it is the most popular option.

Old thread but there are many many airpod knock-off options that are like 99% identical now for around $30.
