Powerbeats Pro vs Jaybird Vista vs Jabra Elite Active 75t: which should you buy?
All three of these deserve a place on our list of the best running headphones, but which should you buy?
If you want the best sound quality from a pair of true wireless headphones designed for running and gym, opt for Powerbeats Pro. Rather than blasting you with bass, these offer a much more high quality musical experience. Due to their spectacle-style ear hooks, these Beats also fit better than any other true wireless bud. They are basically impossible to shake from your ears, as Beats proved by giving a pair to Simone Biles in their promotional video, and getting her to pile through some high octane twirling. The only down side to these buds is that while their increased size doesn't add excessive weight, it does mean they need a rather substantial battery case. The are also only rated IPX4. This hasn't caused me any problems in the two years I've been using them but it means the Powerbeats probably wouldn't stand up well to being dropped in a deep puddle.
Jaybird Vista, by contrast, are rated IPX7 which means you could attempt to drown them in your bath and they would survive for half an hour. Although they're not a musical virtuoso like Powerbeats, the Vista buds do sound pretty great when it comes to running soundtracks. The fit is very secure, so the likelihood of them falling out and into a puddle is quite slight anyway but the advanced waterproofing does give additional peace of mind – especially if you sweat buckets.
Finally, Jabra Elite Active 75t should be your go-to buds if you want extreme compactness and comfort. These tiny buds go deep into your ear without any cyborg-style protrusions and serve up sound isolation and active noise cancelling. If you need to be able to hear what's going on around you, don't worry, as hear-through can be activated with a prod of your left earpiece. At under £100 these superb true wireless sports buds have never been cheaper.
