New Headphones - Jabra Elite Active 65t

I love listening to stuff when I go running.  I always go running with my phone, and for years I've been using the Sennheiser PX 100 over-the-head headphones.  They are light, open-back headphones so they let in ambient noise which is great for outdoor runs as I typically run on the street and I feel safer being able to hear what's going on around me.

For trainer rides, those headphones suck.  My Tacx Vortex Smart is ridiculously loud and I need that noise blocked out, if only for my sanity.  For the longest time, I was using a set of inexpensive Anker wireless earbuds.  I wore them during my trainer sessions and they worked great.  I tried to use them when I was on my treadmill as well, but they would never stay put.  As soon as I got sweaty, they would fall out of my ears, so instead, I typically just turned the volume up really loud on the TV or on my phone, depending on what content I was consuming.

Those Anker headphones bit the dust when I ran the Marine Corps Marathon. …
