Best Bluetooth Headphones for Running

If you're a runner then you know how great of a feeling it is to just get away from life for a little bit to where it's just you, your favorite songs, and the road ahead.

Unfortunately there's one thing that always seems to ruin that runner's high: cords.

How many times have you been out running, hit your peak with your favorite up beat song on and then moments later you accidentally tug on your headphone cable ripping your earbuds out and completely killing your pace. Well, I'm hoping I can help put an end to all of that. I'm a bit of a tech junkie and you're fortunate enough to take advantage of my knowledge.

Below I've listed the absolute best Bluetooth headphones for running with a short review and my own input from experience. You'll also find a few features to look for if you're unsure which headphones are right for you along with some of the new Bluetooth sports headphones that you can expect to see in the near future.

Qualities to Look for in Bluetooth Running Headphones

Start Here!

If this isn’t your first pair of Bluetooth headphones then you may just want to skip to the Top 10 List below.

However, if this is your first time looking for a pair of Bluetooth headphones, earbuds, or headsets for running then there are a few things you’ll want to know before you dive in.

General Bluetooth Information

Bluetooth technology is amazing. However, it is not perfect. Bluetooth devices are essentially establishing a connection between the headphones and your (Bluetooth enabled) device. Bluetooth utilizes a wireless connection, and like any wireless connection there can be connection problems. So, don’t get frustrated because no device will be perfect. There will be times that your connection will be weak or it may just drop altogether. This is completely normal, but you always want to ensure the device you are choosing is known for quality Bluetooth components.

What to Look for in Bluetooth Running Headphones

Charging Time. Typically charging time will be somewhere between 2-4 hours. Obviously the less the better.

Operating Time. This is sometimes referred to “talk time” or “music time”. You should have no problem finding a pair of Bluetooth headphones that can last through multiple workouts. I recommend a pair that get at least 6 hours of operating time, that should last 1 week of workouts without having to charge.

Compatibility. Technology is always changing, so make sure the headphones you choose are compatible with the device you want to use. This is rarely a problem unless you are pairing an old device with new headphones or vice versa. Just be careful of buying headphones that haven’t been released in the past 1-3 years.

Sweat Resistance. Not every pair of running headphones are sweat resistant. If you sweat a lot then you are likely to damage your headphones (especially the Bluetooth) permanently. Try to find sweat resistant pair, and perhaps a pair that have a warranty on sweat or water damage.

Size. While all technology seems to be shrinking, some of the Bluetooth components are still rather large, otherwise we’d be paying thousands of dollars for wireless technology similar to what is used in hearing aids. Just be aware that Bluetooth headphones are typically slightly larger and a little heavier (we’re talking maybe a few ounces heavier, not much).

Now that you know what to look for, check out the Top 10 list below!

Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth Earbuds

Jaybird has quickly risen to the top of the Bluetooth sports headphones market, so it should come to no surprise that the Jaybird Freedoms aren't the only Bluetooth headphones by them on my list of best Bluetooth running headphones.

The Good
These are perfect for the minimalist runner. Most runners are dead set on one word: lightweight. The Jaybird Freedoms are about as lightweight as you can go. Did I mention they sound great, look cool, and are comfortable?

The Bad
It's very common to have some type of additional external "clip" or "hook" and that's one thing these earbuds lack. The only thing keeping them in your ears are a good fit from the ear buds themselves. Don't be surprised if these fall out on hard runs.

The Bottom Line
It's going to be hard to go wrong with any Jaybird product, and while I like these for running I wish they had an ear hook or neckband to ensure they didn't fall out.

Jabra Sport Bluetooth Headset

If you haven't already noticed, the Jabra Sport Bluetooth Headset is very similar to the Jaybird Freedom. The question is, how do they stack up?

The Good
Jabra's added a focus to bass response creates a great sounding Bluetooth headset. Combine that with a comfortable fit and a solid ear hook design and these are quality Bluetooth headphones.

The Bad
Bluetooth technology is not perfect, everyone knows that. It's hard to cram such high tech into such a small earbud. The Jabra falls short in connectivity. You might be fine if you run with an armband, but expect music to cut in and out if you keep your iPhone or iPod on your waist or in your pocket.

The Bottom Line
If you're willing to try different locations for your MP3 device to get the best Bluetooth connectivity then the Jabra Sport may be worth your while, if not then you might want to look elsewhere.

Jaybird Sportsband

Jaybird Bluetooth Headset

It shouldn't be much of a surprise to see another pair of Jaybird headphones on my list of best Bluetooth headphones for runners. Jaybird knows their stuff when it comes to wireless technology, and that's why I love their Jaybird Sportsband.

The Good
The Jaybird Sportsband is and old school style vertical headphone made with a new school look and sound. The one great thing that sets this Bluetooth headset apart is the ease of use. A lot of Bluetooth headphones utilize very small buttons making it hard to control sometime, but the larger earphones on the Sportband allow for slightly larger buttons and easier use.

The Bad
They're great for vertical activities like running, walking and most gym activities. The only real downside is you may have to tighten them up if doing anything lying down (like situps) or they may have a tendency to slip a little causing you to readjust them every so often.

The Bottom Line
Jaybird created one of the best looking Bluetooth headsets, which are perfect for runners. They added the ability to not only adjust the headset, but also the ear pads themselves, for added comfort. This is just another reason Jaybird is one of the leading wireless headphone manufacturers.

Motorola SF 600 Bluetooth Headset

The Ultimate Fitness Headphones

Motorola is marketing their new SF series, combined with the MOTOACTV as the Ultimate Fitness Headphones.

The Good
Combined with the MOTOACTV you have the ability to track your runs via built in GPS, gather hear rate monitoring data, and play your favorite tunes. They automatically interrupt your music if you get an incoming call and they are easy to get a great fit. On top of that anything with the Motorola name should make you feel a little more comfortable buying.

The Bad
They're a bit on the expensive side. This is mainly because they're new, but also because they're just that good.

The Bottom Line
These are the newest of the Bluetooth headphones on this list, which also means they are the most unproven. Even though they're new, they absolutely rock. They're comfortable, they're light, and combined with the MOTOACTV they are amazing. If you're not looking to spend a little bit of money though you may want to go with something cheaper.

Jabra Halo 2 Bluetooth Headset

It's been tough finding the Jabra Halo 2 in stock lately, that's how popular they've become.

The Good
Easy to carry and store since it has a collapsible headband (which is awesome!). Not noise isolating or noise cancelling. While many people think this may be a downfall, it's actually a plus for anyone who loves jogging outdoors and might be around traffic.

The Bad
Some people have complained of durability issues related to the hinge, but this is most likely from those people jamming these awesome headphones in their gym bag with no regard.

The Bottom Line
The bottom line is the Jabra Halo 2 is quickly becoming one of the most popular running headsets available. They sound great, they connect to multiple devices at the same time, they're comfortable and super easy to carry. Definitely check these out.

Motorola S305 Bluetooth Headphones

The Motorola S305 are some of the original Bluetooth headphones that become super popular with runs and sports enthusiasts. After several years they are still a favorite for many people.

The Good
The S305 are great for multiple reasons, but one of the big reasons is comfort. The neckband is light and the ear pads provide a very comfortable fit. Motorola excels at in call quality so you can expect good sound quality when making or receiving calls.

The Bad
While these headphones are great for running that wasn't their sole purpose and the foam ear pads aren't prime for someone who sweats a lot. I've personally never had a problem, but that's really the only complaint I've heard from others.

The Bottom Line
The Motorola S305 are kind like the go to Bluetooth headphones for running and working out, mainly because they are proven. They've consistently been good for years. However, with that said, you'll find that there are other Bluetooth headphones with more features, even ones like the new SF 600 series (that I mentioned above) also by Motorola.

Plantronics BackBeat 903+

Plantronics Knows Bluetooth

If you're an audiophile you've probably heard of Plantronics. Even if you aren't it's likely you know them as a top quality audio provider. One thing Plantronics began excelling at before anyone else was Bluetooth technology in headphones.

The Good
Think of Plantronics as like the ultimate headphones gadget. They excel in taking complex functions and making them really simple and usable. One thing I like about the BackBeat 903 is the controls and how light they are. They don't sound bad either.

The Bad
The earbuds are a little different, kind of similar to Yurbuds (if you've ever seen them). It's not necessarily bad, but it is something to note.

The Bottom Line
These are a solid choice and the price is definitely right.

GOgroove AudioACTIVE Bluetooth Sports Headset

Get your Bluetooth groove on!

The GOgroove AudioACTIVE is another in the long line of awesome GOgroove products. This time they tailored a pair of Bluetooth headphones specifically for the active user in mind.

The Good
The best part about these headphones is comfort. GOgroove invested a lot of time in ergonomics and creating a pair of headphones that was comfortable to wear even under the most intense activities.

The Bad
There have been quite a few complaints with the Bluetooth connectivity. As it goes with any Bluetooth device obstruction can cause a drop in the signal, but for some reason a few runners are having increased problems with this pair.

The Bottom Line
This is a quality Bluetooth headset for runners, but if you're dead set on a product by GOgroove you may want to check out their headband style: the GOgroove Airband.

Motorola S10 HD Headphones

Bluetooth Neckband Headphones

There is nothing wrong with keeping it a little old school. If you've read this list from top to bottom you may have noticed Motorola is all over the place. Along with Sennheiser they've been here since the beginning and their S10 headphones helped revolutionize the market.

The Good
Style. These headphones just look badass.

A lot of people complain about the rigidity of the headphones right out of the box, but after a couple weeks with them they'll soon become the most comfortable pair you own.

The Bad
When Motorola moved from the S9 to the S10, they lost one important feature: good sound quality. Don't expect anything above average with this headset.

While old isn't necessarily bad, these headphones are several years old and some people may prefer the newest models available.

The Bottom Line
These headphones are great, but they just can't keep up with the newer version: the SF 600. Also check out the Motorola S305 if you're looking for another quality pair

GOgroove Airband Wireless Headset

Bluetooth Vertical Headphones

The Good
Easy to use controls (utilizes 4 quadrant controls) on the earphone, extremely comfortable and great sound quality.

The Bad
Not ideal for the gym. Because of the amount of ambient sounds this headset allows it's not ideal for working out at the gym. Because of the amount of ambient sounds this headset allows it's not ideal for working out at the gym. In addition this headset utilizes foam earpads, which can be a "no go" for a lot of heavy sweaters.

The Bottom Line
These may be the best offer from GOgroove if you're looking for a quality pair of Bluetooth headphones for running, but probably won't be ideal if you plan to use them for more than running. Horizontal sports movements (i.e. situps) may cause the headset to actually fall off.

    Got any advise for a waterproof one?
  • Sudhi Sep 16, 2013 @ 12:59 pm
    Motorola SF600 is an worst headphone. I bought it 4 months back and now its not damaged. The mics have stopped working, the LED doesn't glow. I feel Pathetic after spending nearly 60 USD and I have not used so extensively at all, once in 15 days.
  • wiredears Sep 04, 2013 @ 7:20 am
    Out of that list I only tried the jaybird freedom, but I must say that I like the Plantronic Blackbeat GO a little bit more
  • PatrickHayes76 Aug 24, 2013 @ 1:58 pm
    I just use the Apple headphones that came with my phone however there are some pretty neat headphones that you highlighted above. Might need to make a change.
  • TheYCGuy Jul 30, 2013 @ 8:55 am
    I had no clue most of these existed. Thanks!
  • SusanAston Jul 28, 2013 @ 6:28 am

    What a great resource! Thanks.
  • nicolekato Jun 13, 2013 @ 10:28 pm
    As an avid runner, I love this. Excellent lens.
  • Elis173 Jun 13, 2013 @ 8:48 pm
    Great lens!
  • Greathaul2013 Jun 12, 2013 @ 8:15 pm
    Nice idea to put a lens together about this subject. I bought two sets of uncomfortable headphones for jogging before finally getting a good set on my third attempt - the Motorola SF600. From my experience I highly recommend getting a pair with a soft cord connecting the two sides, not hard plastic. The hard plastic ones bounce too much and are uncomfortable imo.
  • May 17, 2013 @ 1:27 am
    I think I would like these for when I mow the yard.
  • onepace Jun 14, 2013 @ 10:02 pm
    Ya, I have several pairs and tend to LOVE the ones that block out ambient noise, especially when I'm mowing my large 6 acre property!
  • imagelist May 05, 2013 @ 12:07 pm
    A really helpful lens...
  • ConvenientCalendar May 03, 2013 @ 11:40 pm
    Great information here! I know which one to get now!
  • MarkRobinson537 May 02, 2013 @ 2:34 pm
    Awesome lense! HUGE lens too i might add :) hehe. I'd have to say for me personally, I'd need something that would wrap around my ears so i wouldn't need to adjust them every few minutes. I'm a person that sweats quite a bit, no matter the exercise so just plain earbuds would start slipping out, over the head band type ones would just feel weird and get all wet from my sweaty head. So, that leaves something akin to the Jabra Sport :) thanks for the info here, I'd looked into buying some a while ago, but gave up when trying to find some useful info. :) cheers
  • annayjo Apr 25, 2013 @ 12:43 pm
    Some of these are really cool looking! I've been trying to find a good bluetooth headphone and this lens is very helpful, thank you!!
  • mykeepon Apr 16, 2013 @ 3:16 pm
    I do my share of running and having music is essential. The best one's to use are those that actually wrap around the ears. You just put them on and you're set. With ear buds you're sometimes having to push them in every 30 seconds.
  • onepace Apr 22, 2013 @ 2:00 pm
    I agree, with the exception of the Jaybird Freedoms. They have no ear hook, but they are an amazing pair of headphones for running or working out.

    I also think a headset (or vertical headphones) can fit just as well as ear hook or neckband.
  • h2ofs1 Apr 06, 2013 @ 9:13 am
    Agree with some of the comments below, the Jaybird Freedoms are a brilliant piece of kit! Fit extremely well and epic sound. Great Lens BTW really informative.
  • GatorD Apr 02, 2013 @ 10:11 am
    I stumbled across this lens accidentally but am very happy I did. I have much frustration trying to keep my wired earbuds in my ears as I jog and I didn't even know wireless ones existed (I guess I am out of touch). Thanks for sharing I will get me some now!
  • Mario Padilla Mar 26, 2013 @ 9:26 pm
    The Jaybird freedoms I tried these and found that they fit so snug that all ambient sounds are locked out and that talking or running resounded through and made it feel like you could hear your own movements. like putting your fingers in your ears and talking to yourself. Did anyone else notice this. For such an expensive set for sports it should let ambient sounds through for traffic safety.
  • onepace Apr 22, 2013 @ 2:02 pm
    That's a really good point. You definitely have to be careful when choosing a pair of "in ear" headphones versus "earbuds". Earbuds will allow some ambient sound, but when you get a pair of headphones that fit in your ear canal, you typically get a better sound but a higher safety risk. Great for the gym and running on the treadmill, not so great for running outdoors (unless you're secluded).
  • Joshua Mar 26, 2013 @ 8:49 am
    I had the Jaybird Sportband. After receiving my 8 replacement pair they decided to tell me my warranty was no longer valid but would give me a $50 credit if I sent the pair back. Each previous pair was replaced due to sweat damage and I'm not an excessive sweater. I really liked the headphones for fit and sound but can't recommend them to anyone for anything other than sitting at a desk.
  • kelly bushing Mar 01, 2013 @ 1:39 am
    nice collection of different types of headphones..
  • racingdatabase Feb 20, 2013 @ 5:01 am
    Great lens! I've got the GoGroove AudioActive headphones and love them!
  • kevinjy Feb 17, 2013 @ 3:52 pm
    What about bluebuds x by jaybird? It looks nice
  • onepace Apr 03, 2013 @ 9:22 pm
    See my response below to "jessemellon".
  • cargoliftken Feb 17, 2013 @ 2:21 am
    I like this lens! Excellent review.
  • jessemellon Feb 15, 2013 @ 5:24 pm
    How do the Jaybird Bluebuds X rank against the rest of these?
  • onepace Apr 03, 2013 @ 9:22 pm
    I haven't used the Jaybird Bluebuds X yet, mainly because of the cost. But, from everything I've read they are probably going to be superior to every pair on this list.
  • iriebra Feb 13, 2013 @ 12:28 pm
    Went through 3 pair of the Jabra Sport in 1 year. They dont take any type of sweat, wear/ tear, and take a delicate touch or damage will occur to the charging processes. Jabra now wants to keep sending me another pair; I want my money back instead of continuously using an inferior product. IMO - DO NOT BUY Jabra products!
  • Steve Jun 25, 2013 @ 5:05 pm
    I have had the same problem. Gone through 5 pairs and my last pair just died but now I am outside of the 1 year purchase date and they are refusing to replace. DON'T BUY.
  • Crystal Feb 07, 2013 @ 5:32 am
    I'm literally hunting for good Bluetooth headsets, but I'm torn between leaving earbuds behind and going back to the old school over ear kind. I've gone the earbud route for so long, but my ears really hurt now. They're like being raped by all these randomly shaped buds! Which did you feel the most comfort with on the buds and which of the over ears had clearer sound?
  • onepace Apr 03, 2013 @ 9:20 pm
    I'm definitely a bigger fan of earbuds than headsets. I think the Jaybird headset is pretty nice, but the problem with headsets is they tend to fall off sometimes if you want to use them for other workouts.
  • GeeDeeArr Feb 06, 2013 @ 4:20 pm
    I have the Jabra Sports and am still impressed with everything they can do along with how comfortable and secure they stay around my ears. Bluetooth headphones are definitely starting to becoming popular www.bluetoothsports.com has a couple of other ones not listed here that are worth checking out.
  • iriebra Feb 13, 2013 @ 12:29 pm
    Do u work for them or just not sweat when u run...Jabra sports are inferior and poorly designed product. DO NOT BUY!
  • Jimw Jul 23, 2013 @ 8:48 am
    Thanks! I won't buy. What are you using?
  • chonkqa Feb 04, 2013 @ 7:52 pm
    This lens is complete and very informative
  • Jermaine Feb 04, 2013 @ 1:17 pm
    This was very informative. I am looking to get a set of wireless earbuds for my wife. She is an avid runner and complains about the cords getting in the way! I think I'm going to go with the Motorola SF600.
  • Anthony Jan 30, 2013 @ 7:46 am
    Had my Jaybird freedoms for 13 months and the right ear went out. They didnt replace and something tells me their sweat warranty check will come back denied...
  • onepace Apr 03, 2013 @ 9:19 pm
    Unfortunately I've heard a lot of similar stories about Jaybird Freedoms lately. They're still great headphones thogh.
  • JohnBoo Jan 29, 2013 @ 8:26 am
    Wow i like the Jaybird Sportsband, "Squid Liked"your Lens ;-) awesome!
  • abouthealthtips Jan 08, 2013 @ 1:39 pm
    This is actually a great idea and like you mentioned, how many times do the cords from the headphone get yanked out while running? Well, its happened to me.

    Cheers
  • Ed Jan 02, 2013 @ 6:16 pm
    If you can find them, the BlueAnt X5i is probably the most comfortable pair I've used.
    Leather(ette) ear pads, so sweat was not a problem.
  • onepace Jan 03, 2013 @ 4:56 pm
    Wow, I actually hadn't heard of the BlueAnt brand. They actually look similar to some of the older Motorola models, but with "cushier" ear pads. Thanks for the heads up on these.
  • James Dec 31, 2012 @ 9:17 am
    Has anyone tried out the new Denon's exercise Freak?
  • onepace Jan 01, 2013 @ 3:20 pm
    Hey James, I haven't reviewed the Denon Exercise Freak...yet. I'm hoping to soon though and we'll see if they get added to the list. Here is a link to a pretty in depth review though: http://www.workoutheadphones.org/denon-ah-w150-exercise-freak-headphones-review/

    They look pretty sweet in my opinion, though maybe a little pricey.
  • Jstatouch Dec 27, 2012 @ 10:37 pm
    Hello,
    Can anyone tell me about the battery life on these? I'd like something that's going to stick with me on a long run.
  • Jason Jan 03, 2013 @ 12:41 pm
    I can tell you that i have had several pairs of the Rockfish, and they are awesome headphones though they are a bit flimsy. If you drop them, the plastic inside might break. The battery lasts easily for like 8 plus hours continuous use. Sounds is good, though using for phone use is a bit of a challenge. People i have talked to tell me they cannot hear me..
  • onepace Jan 03, 2013 @ 5:07 pm
    Jstatouch, that's a good question. I should have added that info. Here is the info for you real quick, and in the next week or so I'll try to add it to the site above, thanks!

    Battery Life (music time):
    1. Jaybird Freedom - 6 hours
    2. Jabra Sport - 3 hours
    3. Jaybird Sportsband - 8 to 11 hours
    4. Motorola SF600 - 5 to 6 hours
    5. Jabra Halo 2 - 8 hours
    6. Motorola S305 - 6 to 7 hours
    7. Plantronics Backbeat 903+ - 7 hours
    8. GOGroove AudioActive - 7 hours
    9. Motorola S10 HD - 8 hours
    10. GOGroove Airband - 8 hours
    11. Rocketfish - 8 hours
  • Timbo Jun 13, 2013 @ 3:02 am
    Jaybird have rubbish batteries. Mine refused to charge after 14months. No chance of warranty. The distributor told me to get lost. Jaybird didn't even reply. Don't go with Jaybird.
  • greentiger11 Dec 20, 2012 @ 5:39 pm
    The Motorola s10's are pretty nice. I have tried those out!
  • eddiea27604 Mar 06, 2013 @ 11:43 pm
    I've used the S10s. Great except for when you run with your phone on your waist... Bluetooth keeps cutting out...
  • Loganor Nov 30, 2012 @ 1:33 pm
    These are great bluetooth headphones for runners. Thanks for selecting and reviewing the best.
  • BookMama Nov 30, 2012 @ 7:36 am
    I've been hinting about wanting a set of these for a couple years now. I think if Santa and his helpers don't figure it out this year, that come first week in January I'm going to be buying a set.
  • Fred Nov 29, 2012 @ 3:41 pm
    Most of these headphones seem pretty crappy for someone who runs. 90% are foam headphones which will get disgustingly sweaty and the other ones have bad connectivity!
  • onepace Nov 29, 2012 @ 8:16 pm
    Fred thanks for the comment, but actually 6 of the above headphones DON'T utilize foam ear pads. Also keep in mind that a lot of people don't sweat profusely and foam ear pads are typically more comfortable. In addition the headsets by Jabra and Jaybird utilize a type of foam that doesn't "soak", meaning if you sweat the pads will feel damp but are designed to wick as much as possible.

    As for connectivity, Bluetooth isn't perfect, but as long as your keep your device clipped to your waist or arm then you're not likely to experience too many problems. In addition, the S305 by Motorola and the Plantronics have exceptional connectivity.

    Hope that helps some and happy running!
  • whats4dinner Nov 23, 2012 @ 9:03 am
    i'm not familiar with the jabra model for bluetooth headphones. but nice selections o headphones are featured in this lens! this goes in my xmas list :)
  • Heiferhopper Nov 05, 2012 @ 7:28 pm
    Another thing to consider: I have used the in-ear type (some have the bluetooth "dogtag") for a while and have had moderate success, though they have failed mostly because I forget that I have them on and end up drenched because of rain. The good thing about the "dogtag" style is that you can replace the earphones; the bad is that you have wires hanging, which defeats the purpose of bluetooth headphones. A company that claims they have some decent weather resistant head phone tech is Outdoor Technology. Google them or find them on Amazon. They seem to get good reviews and are decently priced.
  • JBO Oct 13, 2012 @ 11:12 pm
    Rocketfish set lasted 3 years before the power button failed. I run on a mountain trail in the desert southwest. I think it was a rain that caught me by surprise that did them in about 2 weeks later. I knew it was too wet but was caught with no way to shelter them, it was not a mist. They took Sweat, heat and impact well at a low price. Not for the audiophile but they paced me well from U2 to Metallica to 2pac! NOTE: Worked best with paired player on your left waist or higher.
  • G.R. Aug 13, 2012 @ 6:43 am
    Very disappointed with motorolas s10hd wireless blue tooth head phones. I bought them because I got the iPhone and I run every day and need go music and take important call. They only lasted for 4 months. If you sweet a lot when you work out do not use these,
  • Cross Trainer/Runner Sep 03, 2012 @ 5:59 pm
    I agree. It may seem funny but I went through three pairs. If I had to guess I'd say that mine probably broke due to sweat. To note, I only bought them once and best buy replaced them for free, twice. I'm still looking for a sweat proof pair(probably don't exist)

    Jaybird Freedom was good while working out BUTTTT the power button stopped working...same thing with Backbeat 903, I had them both. So it sucks when it stops working because you can no longer push in the power button

    Same here. Not too much use and it is broken. Each earpiece has kind of a cover and the right ear one just lost part of it, with no evident reason.

    This was informative, and exactly the type of review I was looking for. I hope you continue, and add these: http://ikross.com/IKBT14-Water-Resistant-Bluetooth-Sport-Stereo-Handsfree-Headset#
