At £130, they are not cheap, but Bose’s SoundTrue Ultra in-ear headphones pack a serious punch and make a great in-ear option for runners and gym lovers. They are small and lightweight and fit very snugly and securely to deliver deep, rich sound across a wide frequency range. They are not a noise-cancelling model but the snug fit filters out most background buzz very effectively. The tips conform to the shape of your ears, to leave them resting gently but securely while jogging or exercising. The sound quality is, as you would expect from Bose, superb. They also come with a durable case to throw in your gym bag. For those who are concerned about sweat and weather taking their toll during exercise, Bose also have similar but more durable SoundSport in-ear models, starting from £114.95.

Price: £129.95
Perfect for: Jogging

BeoPlay H3 ANC noice-cancelling earphones

These in-ear headphones from Bang & Olufsen combine top quality sound with state-of-the-art noise-cancelling technology, making them the perfect companion for long journeys. The H3 ANC ooze quality and immediately feel robust and sturdy as you lift them out of the box. The brushed metal finish means they look the part, too. They come with a somewhat clunky USB-rechargeable noise cancellation unit (pictured above) fixed near the headphone jack, which provides up to 20 hours of continuous playback with it turned on. However, it is very effective and is perfect for noisy trains and planes. These are well worth the £200 investment for regular travellers who are looking to fade out the background buzz without any compromise on sound quality.

Price: £199.99
Perfect for: Travel
