Gadget of the Week, Jaybird Run Wireless Earbuds, Geek Chicago

A good pair of headphones is hard to come by - especially a set fit for exercising. If you’ve tried and tried to find your perfect workout headphones, the Jaybird RUN True Wireless in-ear headphones might be the ones you’ve been searching for.

According to Jaybird’s website, the RUN headphones “feature a lightweight, water-resistant design for passionate runners in pursuit of their limits.”

No matter the workout, whether a morning jog or an intense cardio routine, the wireless headphones are resistant to sweat and dirt. The headphones also come with changeable fins and tips to best fit the size and shape of your ear.

To adjust the sound frequencies to fit your listening preferences and guarantee a premium sound, all you have to do is access the Jaybird app, available for both iPhone and Android users, and modify the EQ.

Other things to get excited over? The Jaybird RUN headphones are small but mighty. They hold a four hour charge with an additional eight hours of charging time within the portable case, which can fully charge the headphones in just two hours.

While mainly marketed for runners, the in-ear headphones are sleek and subtle enough to be worn for any occasion. They look great, and come in a variety of colors. You’ll be able to select the “Drift” color scheme (white on gray) or “Jet” (black on gray), to suit your tastes.  

You can get your hands - or ears - on these comfort- and quality-driven headphones for as low as 132.99 via BestBuy, or for $179.99 on Jaybird’s website.
