    I have switched to the AirPods for all my listening. At the gym, home and office. For running though I use the Powerbeats 3's. Since I no longer have a headphone jack I don't use my Bose Sport headphones for running.

    Air pods sound good? The old headphones never fit in my ear right and fell out. The new pods same design?

    For just walking or sitting around I use the Apple EarPods. For working out I use Powerbeats 2. Not because I love Beats, but because they are the only wireless headphones that stay in my ears when I workout. I tried a bunch and these were by far the best.

    I actually purchased the Power Beat 3's and used them for a month before my dog decided to acquire a taste for electronics. Classic case of my dog ate my headphones...
    Now I'm using the LG Tone Platinum Bluetooth Headset with Comply T100 Foam Tips. Out of the box the sound leaves a lot to be desired but the foam tips really bring the headphones to life. I get about 9-11 straight hours of battery depending on how loud I set the volume. I did purchase a Smatree battery case that keeps them protected and charged while on the go. So I have yet to run out of juice.

    I will say I LOVED the W1 chip in the PB 3's and it's pairing capability with all my Apple devices. So I will be looking at the AirPods closely over the next month for that reason alone. For now the LG Tone Platinum's more than exceed my expectations and meet my needs.

    Pros
    - On board Controls
    - Battery Life
    - Third Party Cases
    - Comfort
    - Sound (with Comply Foam Tips)

    Cons
    - Sound out the box lacks detail.
    - Have to go into Bluetooth settings to re-connect to devices previously paired to.
    - No case included with headphones

    I switched to AirPods since they're really convenient and sound good for my taste.

    Besides myself, a lot of people say the AirPods fit better in their ears.

    Just try them out. You have 2 weeks to return them if you don't like them.

    I am using Bose QC35 and Bose sport plus waterproof bluetooth headphones, both are really good, sound quality is great and so is the bluetooth connectivity.
    What the sound quality like on the AirPods?, are they worth purchasing as I already have two good pairs of earphones?

    How do the AirPods stay in your ears? The wired EarPods always fall out of my ears...

    And it could always be the cord attached to the EarPods that unstable them. I would love to try them, but all Apple Stores are out of stock. I wish they'd make a Jet Black pair to match my iPhone.

    Regardless of their stock status, they always have some lying in their drawers for testing purposes.

    Powerboats 3- very happy with everything, it blocks out more noise than any other earbuds I've used.

    At the moment, I've just been using the Blackberry WS-510 earphones. Nothing special but they get the job done. For exercise, i wouldn't recommend the Airpods for running, just because for some people they don't stay in your ears at all.

    If you are going to the gym and want some 'piece and quite' the Bose QC35 is your best headset for the job. Really really good.

    I just got a pair of Sony XB50BS - They're affordable (~$40), have really good sound if you're looking for something with heavy bass, and stay in my ears really well. The only complaint I have is that they cord that connects them together tends to stick to the back of my neck at the gym and tug on the right one. Other than that, really nice set of earbuds.

    Jaybirds x2. The x3 is also there but there isn't a lot of difference between the two. With these on you can do a full sprint and they won't come off. Moreover they have a life time warranty against swear damage. Sound is quite good and battery life is about 8 hours on a full charge.

    *sweat damage. They also have all the voice and controls, etc. so you can attend calls.

    The EarPods always came out of my ears. The AirPods stay put. I can only assume its because of the cord. I jump rope with AirPods in and they don't move a bit.

    I am using a Sennheiser CX 2.00i (wired) and an 1byone Bluetooth 4.1 (Wireless) I use the Sennheiser while I'm not running or when I don't want/need to see my phone, works pretty nice both of them and aren't expensive.
