I’m looking to get some in ear wireless headphones.  I want to use them for audiobooks and also for the gym.  I have not had wireless headphones before.

I’d like something that’s value for money, not the cheapest but not top of the range. Budgeting about $150 - is that reasonable?

Which headphones do you recommend and why, thanks.

I have these and love them.  Got a black pair on Amazon for $150 a couple weeks ago.  https://www.myer.com...AyABEgI8ovD_BwE

Super comfortable and they stay in my ears while I am working out.  

I had the cheaper wired ones and actually managed to sleep with them in a couple times while travelling.  

Not a fan of the Apple pods/earphones as they just don’t fit comfortably

I have Anker slims. Cheap and effective. They were about $45 on Amazon.

Dh has AirPods and loves them. Uses them at the gym, running, phone calls, audiobooks etc and has never had a problem. A little bit more than your budget but worth it.

It doesn't really help in your situation, but I am going to share it here in case others search/read this thread. I have Trekz Titanium Air bone conduction Headphones by Aftershokz and LOVE them. They are great for walking/running safety and for generally having an ear on what is going on outside of your headphones. They sit on the bone just in front of your ears and leave your ear canals entirely open. They are also handy for people who find having anything in their ear disconcerting.  You can get them for about $120
