    I've been buying the same pair of 10$ sony ear clip headphones for about a year and a half now and they break roughly every 2 months. I believe its because of sweat getting into them and shorting them out or whatever, so I'm trying to find a better pair to buy next time. Anyway, lemme know what you have and how well it works for ya.

    :werd: plus they're like 10 bucks so If they last a couple months, you got your moneys worth.

    Shure E2c's, I used to hate the headphones that went into your ear because they would make my ears hurt, but I haven't had that problem with these ones. They are more expensive, but the quality is super good.

    They stay in really well actually. I use the foam tips, you roll them in your fingers and put them in like a pair of ear plugs, they are quite snug if you do it right.

    Pretty similar to these. I like them a lot better than in-the-ear phones.

    I have the sony traditional style in-the-ear headphones. I would use some ex-71s but I already clog up these with sweat and I don't think completely plugging my ear would help any. I have only gone through 2 pairs in the last like 2 years and I have to beat them on my leg on a daily basis to get the sweat out. For some reason it is always the left one that gets clogged too.

    :werd: i think i have those same ones... are they the over-the-ear type?
    they sound good, but my tiny ears are too small to make use of the over-the-ear loop, so it really just makes it more of an annoyance b/c they NEVER stay in

    sounds like i should get some ER6's or whatever

    Apparently I have weird ass ears because I've never found a pair of earbuds that fits me correctly.

    So I use a pair of Sony's that clip over the ears. Not sure what model but they were cheap because I'm only using them for the gym.
