Preparing for a marathon is tough and sweaty work, which is why having a pair of the best sweat proof headphones for running can be a blessing. It gets irritating after a while when headphones are sliding off your head and earbuds are falling out because the area is so slippery.

It can really detract from a run and the training process as you have to keep stopping so that you can adjust your headphones. Sweat proof headphones take all of this away, so you can stay active and motivated while running in style.

1. Monster iSport Freedom (£149.99)

These wireless headphones have Bluetooth, meaning that there are no annoying cables to hit your chest while you run. There are easily accessible buttons on the side for volume and track control, as well as a function to voice activate calls so that you don’t need to stop and fiddle. It frees up your mind so that you can focus on the music and your run.

They are brilliant at staying secure in your ears, partly because they are sweat proof but also thanks to the hooks that attach to the outside of your ear.
