    i have a pair of sony mdr-ex81 headphones that sound really good.. but when i get sweaty, they don't stay in my ears at all and absolutely don't stay put when i'm doing any sort of cardio

    so, i'm back to using my sony sport superlight headphones...

    what are some good headphones to wear at the gym?

    Mine are behind-the-head that are shaped to fit over your ear. The actual headphone part is like a solid, attached bud that fits inside your ear. They're all one piece, non-collapsible, sturdy, and PERFECT for cardio. I bought 'em at Wal-Mart for ~$15. I dunno who makes em.

    They come down the back of the neck and stay in the ear pretty well.

    I used the 4$ coby brand ones. They hurt my ears, have poor quality, and then I realized that it just didn't matter. I was there to lift not to jam out.

    yeah, i had some of those... i have really little ears, though, so they felt way heavy (and the tangle-free cord made me wanna swing 'em over my head into the nearest solid object)

    i have the exact same problem. they're fine for just cruising around or whatever, but when i start to sweat, they twist around and fall out...

    which do you use now?
