Wireless Headphones

Anyone have any favorites they use for stationary training besides ubiquitous AirPods?

Had some BackBeat FIT's that were OK....looking for for new ones.

Thanks

Jabra Elite 65t.
My one complaint is that they don't easily re-pair when switching between phone and Mac.

I use the Bose Soundsport. They pair flawlessly and have a volume control on the strap. Very nice.

Powerbeats Pro. A little finicky on recharging—they have to be positioned just right in the charging case. But good sound and fit my ears nicely.

These cheap BT ones are my go to. Sound decent, comfortable, have a very long battery life and have lasted 5+ years of indoor training sweat:

I've been happily using these Anker Soundcore Spirit for over a year - with tons of trainer time in Zwift and I'm a heavy sweater. No, they don't have the brand cache or looks of more expensive options but for ~$30 totally happy. Was sold on these after watching review vids on youtube where they were submersed in water for several hours and still worked. Sound is good not amazing but neither are my ears.

Minor nits but not dealbreakers:
1) Wire-drapes behind neck and although it does give some security from falling on the ground if they slip out of ears, seems like I'm always futzing with it trying to adjust length just right and I notice it on my sweaty neck.
2) Battery lasts ~7-8 hrs, not terrible but I do need to keep up with regular charging, when they die its sudden with short warning. Not sure how that battery life compares to AirPods or others?

Agree with this. Haven't had an issue with mine yet. Been using them daily for almost 6 months.

I actually just bought some from Amazon for $27. had about 5k reviews at 4.5 stars, so prolly good. I had some similar ones before but eventually lost one of the ear tips. I prefer buying cheaper ones to super expensive awesome sounding ones. I'm a musician and love great sound, but when you're inside on the bike and hear loud trainer noise, or outside and hear wind and cars... no need to prioritize sound quality.

Hope this isn't thread drift - looking for wireless headphones for both using for webinars and for being on a landline phone. Great if they also act as passive noise reduction when not being used for the above uses.

I got some anker AirPods. They look like the Apple ones but I got them for 40$. They sound good enough. The buttons on the outside are hard to use though.
