I've tried various types of Bluetooth earphones for running, and none has lasted longer than about three months before they stopped charging, or one ear stopped working...

However I was spending about £20 on a set; so I'm wondering if it's worth spending more for better quality and reliability- and if so, does anybody have any recommendations?

Thanks very much in advance!

    I have the Plantronics Backbeat Fit set, got them well over a year ago and still going strong. I think there's a new version now.

    I paid around £60 for mine. They pair with my Apple Watch which is what I wanted them for (no need for phone in gym), the cable stays well out the way and they even have a little carry case that reverses to be a phone arm band. The charge lasts ages.

    My one criticism is that after say an hour they feel a bit uncomfortable in my little ears but my workouts usually top out at 45/50 mins so not a problem :)
