Suggestions for good headphones to use while exercising


I've got some cheap headphones that I use right now that start to slip out of my ears pretty bad as I start to sweat a lot. They're simple in-ear bud type ones.

I've also had issues (and I think this is again an issue with the headphones) where when I'm sweating really bad, the volume on my phone goes completely nuts and turns itself down. no matter what I do at this point it continues to happen until I turn the phone off. Once I disconnect the headphones and turn the phone back on it works normally. This issue never happens unless I'm sweating extremely bad...it's almost like the sweat gets in to the headphones and trickles down in to the phone or something, although I'm really just pulling that part out of my ass, as I don't really know what's causing it.

TLDR; I think I want a pair that has the hooks over the ears to help keep them in place, but I need something that holds up well to lots of sweat, if such a thing even exists...any suggestions?

I have some cheap sony ones that hook over my ears. I'm not the kind to spend a lot of money on head phones so they were likely $20 or so from WalMart

I think I paid $60. They are the only things that stay in my ears when running so they are worth it.

the problem with these is that damn volume control - it bounces all over the place when running. Unless they've changed them, the volume control in the old ones were in such an odd location on the wire that there was nowhere to clip them.

re: Suggestions for good headphones to use while exercising


just saw 2 pairs of these after looking them up...I like the idea of the bluetooth headphones like that, but the "affordable" pair looks to be the same earbud style that i currently have that won't stay in place when I sweat a lot. the other pair that have the little fins on them are $130.00 I think that's a bit much for some headphones...though I appreciate the suggestion

re: Suggestions for good headphones to use while exercising


after looking a little closer it seems they have quite a few different bud/fin things to go with them. The idea of cordless is really making me think hard about these, especially the $75 pair. I rip my headphones out of my ear working out at least 3-5 times per trip from the cord getting caught on everything.

I have a cheap ($20) pair of Philips. They stay in place and I've never had any volume issues.
