When I run, I sweat like there is no tomorrow. I’ve killed more headphones than I can count. The Jaybirds X3 lasted five days with me. Second time I’ve tried them, second time I’ve killed them.
Currently, powerbeats2. I had them died within a year, got a referb back from apple, I use them on the trainer now, taking a break from running to cycle. While waiting for the referb’s, I tried the powerbeats3, killed them in a short time. Hard to say how long this second gen will last, curious to try the third gen again.
IPX7 waterproof, 3 feet/1 meter for 30 mins, not sure I’d trust it.
Jaybird freedom 5, lasted about a week or less.
Jaybird x2, same, very short time till I killed those
Plantronics backbeat go 3, same, dead.
skullcandy xt plyo, same, dead
jbl reflect mini, same, returned
yurbuds focus 400, same, returned
That goes back to Feb 2016. I had a yurbud sport that lasted for a while, sound was okay, support got tired of me killing them and exchanging them, that was before the one year warranty change. They had a lifetime warranty, bad for them, good for me, I’d keep a backup and keep sending them in. You say they’re waterproof, prove it…
I’ve yet to have one manufacture out of the box, make it through the entire warranty period. Some were uncomfortable and sound was just bad, so those could be part of the returns also. Right now, the second gen beats slide on my ears and just work but still have they glitch’s, I’ve had the sound cut out of on them. Not sure if they’re dying or finally getting old.
Good luck on your search.
