    Ironman has a line of ear buds. The sound is awesome and they are made for athletes so no slippage too.

    I use Sennheiser and have had the same pair for four years. The sound is near perfect and I do not have any issues with them such as falling out of my ear. They are a little bit more expensive than other brands but worth the extra $.

    The price on these is rock bottom but for me the sound is perfect (I listen to psychedelic trance). What I like about them is they have a really deep bass. They get wedged in your ears so they're less likely to fall out. They come in different colors; just be sure you get the EP26; there's another model that looks identical but sounds like crap compared to these.

    The driver is a Neodymium magnet so they have a lot of punch.

    Koss portapro. A bit 80s in styling but covered by koss' lifetime no questions asked warranty. Smash them into little pieces and send then back to koss with a check for $7 and you get a new pair a few weeks later, NQA. buy two pair so you have a backup while the broken pair is getting replaced.

    Bought and just received these from Amazon. I got the white ones for $7.23 a pair. This part of their description is what prompted me to order them: "A new, meticulously crafted sound chamber designed to perfectly resonate the wide range frequency response from our unparalleled Japanese cobalt drivers."

    The sound is decent. For the price it's quite good. Just a hair less punchy bass than the iHip I linked to earlier.

    I've gone through several pairs, but Phillips makes waterproof ear buds. I like the wraparound ones they have too, but I've gone through 3-4 pairs of those in less than a 3 months. My first pair lasted a year they must've went down in quality (same gym bag/same usage).

    Save your expensive headphones for when you want to enjoy music at home or when you're traveling.

    I never understood why guys wear hyped up beats while doing cardio, then again I don't understand why guys wear expensive cologne at the gym either -- although it's better than BO.

    i have Beats over ear, wireless. I love then. I tried Parrot, (they had the best sound, but were heavy and fell off too easy) and another Monster brand with weird shaped ear pieces. They weren't very good. I hate wired. I love the wireless. icon_smile.gif

    Bower & Wilkins C5. You will lose them before you break them. I own these earbuds and I can tell you they are perfect for all sorts of fitness activities. The fit and the way it loops in your inner ear cartilage makes it quite hard to shake them off. The wire is incredibly strong, a bit stiff but you want them to be durable so it is a fair trade off. Sound quality is obviously excellent as expected from B&W. They are a tad expensive but they are definitely worth the price unlike Beats.

    i love my munitios, but only cuz of the over the ear wire... quality isn't worth what they were originally charging, but i got them off woot for $19. Always watching for earbud sales.

    Having trained for 3 marathons in a year, I was ALWAYS on the hunt for good earphones that wouldn't be killed by sweat or keep falling out of my ear.

    I found these and, for me, are the best I've found:

    The bluetooth pairs I've tried all shorted out because of sweat and wouldn't take a charge.

    Other in ear options would always fall out.

    The Yurbugs above sort of 'screw' into your ear and I can jump up and down and shake my head (within reason of course) and they won't fall out.

    Try True Blood remix from Vmoda. Durable wires, earbuds are made of Steel, the earpieces are soft and comfy, and it comes with a wire clip to prevent the wire from jumping around too much. They're the best earbuds I've ever owned icon_cool.gif

    I use Snuggbuds. Great for long workouts or runs and never fall out even when soaked from sweat. The sound quality is great too.

    I use these as well. Like them a lot for all the above reasons: no shorting out when wet, no popping out from sweat. Although just bought some snuggbuds to try as well.

    The only headphones that I've owned that didn't break were the kind that have a connection in the middle of the cord that comes apart when you run into a workout machine. I still have it after 7 years. Sorry don't have it near me. All my iphone earphones and stereo receiver expensive headphone have broken due to plastic wear.

    Dang. My iPhone earbuds appear to have been stepped on icon_sad.gif so this is a timely thread. I wonder which of the above include the mic for phone calls?

    I have a motorola bluetooth headset that is almost useless because it constantly cuts out during any kind of activity and it won't fit with my bicycle helmet. (I suspect that buds with over-the-ear loops might also clash with helmets, but maybe if they flex enough...)
