Best  wireless IEM's for sport

What are the options?

Noise cancelling would be nice to have too, depending on the cost.

jabra elite active 75t

Looks like a winner in most of the online reviews.

Airpods and Samsung galaxy buds work great. I haven't used any others.

if cost is not an object and you have to buy locally  i would use the Sony ones before using the apple or samsung ones - the Sony WF 1000xm3 is available at around the same price as the airpods pro at Takealot ..... both very pricey though

comparison between the Sony and the Jabra - so if you want to self import the Jabra may be a better bet

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are awesome, noise cancelling and waterproof so sweat resistant.

You can also pick them up secondhand but new and sealed for great prices because people get them free with phones and sell them.

I have a pair and they sound remarkable. Only thing I changed was I'm using Comply foam tips which help them fit better.

I have a pair of Skullcandy Sesh Evo True Wireless ear buds. Really good for the price and quite a bit cheaper than the big name brands.
