They cost about $100 for a halfway decent pair.
Won't hold a charge for an average work-shift.
Has to be charged, which alone is a giant negative.
One falling out while being active means it's now in the dirt.
All of them look like a hearing aid or medical device.
Bluetooth sucks.
Wireless earbuds are stupid.

Maybe I just have weird ears but most earbuds (wired) I've ever had fall out when I go running. This means losing one or damaging one on the pavement. Or possibly worse, in the dirt/grass/mud when trail running.

Wired headphones are far superior in every way.

No charging required.
Attachable cord for quick-release from ears.
Universally seen as headphones, and not medical device.
Works on all phones that aren't retarded.
Pairs easily to other devices with common audio ports.
Useful tether if one pops out when running in the woods.
Probably better audio quality available in this form factor.
Can literally buy shitty cheap ones at gas stations for like $7.

Wired earbuds > Wireless earbuds.

Actually, in fact, earbuds suck. Over the ear headphones are far superior in every way but those aren't as socially acceptable to be used in public.

The wireless type that goes around your neck in one piece is superior while carrying loads, strapped to a bag, or twisting around. It tends to stay put or fall on your shoulder. You don't want to put the wired or wireless earbuds back in after they get yanked out and touch the ground.

Though that's easier to prevent with a wire you can clip to your shirt.

Actually, I prefer the old cheap style over-the-ear headphones regardless. Sometimes one pops up in a discount store, likely old stock getting cleared out.
