    I am trying to find some decent headphones that won't fall out of my ears when I am running/jogging. Pisses me off when I have to slow up to readjust my headphones every 2 minutes. I think I may have to go with over ear headphones instead of my earbuds that I have... I dunno. Any suggestions? What are your running? (no pun intended :D)

    I hate running with the over ear ones..just seem heavy and off balance if that makes sense. I just stick to the classic Ipod ones. Not the ones with the rubber tips that "fit" better they fall out all the time.

    Skullcandy are my favorites. The in-the-ear style won't come out when running and cancel noise very well.

    I suggest getting a set of SHURE in ear headphones. They have a soft insert so you can smoosh it down like an ear plug and fit it in your ear. they work great plus they rival BOSE in ear sound and structure quality

    I like the etymotic in ear phones but they may not be for everyone. Klipsch also makes some nice ones.

    Personally, I hate the buds that go inside the ear. Feels funny as hell and can hear myself breathing. I just use basic Ipod one's and they hardley fall out during any of my training.....running, burpees, pull ups, etc they maybe slip once or twice.

    I run the cord under my shirt and my ipod is clipped on my waist. This way I don't pull them out and they don't get caught on stuff.

    Exactly how I feel. I also tuck it in my shirt...they do have ipod holders that have chord wraps on them to keep the chords away.

    I have these bose IE2's... They don't ever fall out and sound incredible, or use to at least. I think I dropped them in water or something because now 90% of the sound comes out of the right ear which is very unfortunate :( However it doesn't bother me too much because now I just always only put the right ear in and leave the left out so I can hear my surroundings better.

    I use them for biking, snowboarding, jogging, sprinting, and playing basketball sometimes and I've literally never had them fall out except the few times ive yanked on the cord on accident. They also make a model with mic and bluetooth I believe if you want to pay a little more. I'm probably going to eventually buy another pair.

    They also have a clip. So I run them through my shirt and clip it towards my collar. Don't notice hearing my own breathing or feel like I'm stuffing my ear with anything either.

    Too many to list now.
    X2 best headphones I've ever worn. And I have worn a lot. It took me quite a while to find a pair that I liked, but I've used these biking, snowboarding, running, you name it and they do not move. But thats the icing on the cake. The cake is that they are an amazing sounding headphone, take it from an audiophile. I bought mine at Fred Meyers for 120 and you get full iphone functionality through the remote, and if you don't need the smartphone capability, they have a set exactly the same for 99 without the remote.

    I have been using koss spark plugs for a few years and I love them! They are by far my favorite head phones I have ever had, I like them more than my skull crushers

    P.s. they are around $15 a set, so if they mysteriously get wrapped up in your power tools, or washed multiple times, or chewed on by puppies. It's no biggie.

    I have these in grey. They sounds great and don't move but then again I'm not jogging just power walking. You do have to wrap these over your ear so that you don't hear any of the cord whip.

    Dude get some shitty Skullcandy Titans 40$ decent sound and stay in your ear like glue. Plus you wont feel bad when you mess up the cord benching or ruin them with sweat. Seriously had mine for almost a year now workout 4-5 times a week heavy sweating and lifting only had to superglue on of the them cause the casing came apart. STILL going strong!

    i've got a set of the monster isports. Unbelievable sound quality. In ear, noise cancelling and the best part, they're waterproof. The instructions on cleaning them actually tell you to zip them inside your pockets on your warm up pants and wash them in the washer. No dryer though.

    I bought the Zagg Smart buds. A little pricey but they come with fittings for different ears. Amazing sound on them too. Very pleased. You can usually find a discount code or deal on them too.

    Have you tried the ones that wrap around your ear?

    [​IMG]
    Something like these, not the "sexy look" people go for but I don't give a shit what people think about my head phones :p If they fulfill that's all that really matters.

    Also something like this, I have never tried it but looks cool and may work
