Much of the world's population seems to have taken up running. And who can blame them? There's little else to do to keep active these days. While the natural world might keep you entertained for a moment, it often takes more to squeeze out that extra motivation. A run isn't the same without music, and it's certainly not as easy with wires in the way.

For the reasons above, we've searched the web for the five best wireless headphones available right now, to turn your new-found running hobby into something you might actually enjoy. Don't blame us for your lame taste, though.

Scroll on to check our wireless headphones for running recommendations.

This is the priciest pair on our list, and coming from Band & Olufsen, that's probably not a surprise. What you do get for B&O prices, though, is superior sound quality. As well as that, the Beoplay B8 Motion is geared towards user compatibility, offering fine-tuning of sound profile through an accompanying app and detachable ear fins to get the perfect fit.
