    I'd tempted to purchase the Powerbeats 3 for my runs but absolutely loathe the rounded in ear style headphones. Does anyone have any suggestions as to in ear headphones (similar to EarPods)?

    Can't say the AirPods contribute much on the style front, but I like mine anyway.

    Ha, touche. However, since I'll be taking these running, my apple AirPods will be staying in their nice little case :D.

    I'm not entirely sure what you are asking for. The Powerbeats 3 are on ear, and that's what your thread title is asking for. Did you in fact want in-ear?

    I was never much of a Bose fan, but I've been very pleasantly surprised by my QC20's. I've not tried to take them running but I suspect they would be OK. There's always Etymotic and you can get custom fitted inserts. For something a little different, try Phiaton (MS100BA).

    In-ear sound is very subjective. What sort of sound are you looking for? Balanced, bass rockers, classical, ???
