Looking for a good set of wireless earbuds for the gym...

Would like to purchase a set of earbuds for the gym and looking for some suggestions. I'm thinking $100 would be the sweet spot but willing to pay more if they are worth it. Not totally ruling out Apple AirPods but sick of the "fanboy" status but my mom and several other friends of mine loves them. Coworker loves his Jaybird RUN earbuds. But, I'm seeing 50,000 options and looking for suggestions.

Thanks.

....if you can wait......once the AirPods 2 come out, there SHOULD be price reduction of AirPods 1 or people selling [ used with earwax not included ] when they upgrade to the newer one......

Space,

Does it have to be earbuds? I personally despise that style. Much prefer over the ear, behind the neck bluetooth models. If that's workable, I have a couple of recommendations.

Space,

I'm using these:

They've been dandy. And, they're inexpensive enough that if they break or I lose them, I don't care. smiling smiley

I especially like the first set because I can through music onto a chip and install it into them. That way, if my phone is low on juice or not handy, I can still enjoy music while at the gym.

I second Robert M's vote for the behind-the-head (aka back-hang) style wireless headphones for the gym. I've purchased a couple of these SoundBot models in the past 5 years, and love love them for the gym.

They don't get sweat inside them like the earbuds I tried, and they hold a charge for multiple 45-minute workouts without needing a recharge. Sync perfectly with multiple iPhones that I've owned. And the sound is better than the earbuds I've tried. Deeper bass.

I bought these for riding and the gym: [www.amazon.com]
I tried and returned or gifted several pairs, these were by far the best. I even bought 2 more refurbs from Woot for my daughter and her husband. They love them as well.
