Need a beat to move your feet? Then listen up - here are the 5 best headphones for running

Whether you’re a fan of hardcore trance or classic rock, music has been scientifically proven to improve your pace when you pull on your sneakers and go for a run. Effectively a way of keeping your feet on the beat and in rhythm with the music, you’ll feel a performance enhancing effect if you run to songs with an even tempo and lively beat.

But, with increased speed comes the risk of losing your headphones. Normal earbuds, as far as you push them into your ears, are prone to dropping out when you run down a kerb or up some steps. As such, we’ve rounded up the five best pairs of headphones to wear during your workout – some are sweat proof, others wireless – but all are guaranteed to stay in your ears and keep you racing along at record speed.
