Yes another vote for the sennheiser PMX70. I have never been able to get the ear plug type to stay in for more than a few steps so I used to have a cheapo pair which went over the ears and up over the top of the head. It wasn't until I got the sennheiser that I realised how good music can sound through headphones.
I have worn them for several 3hour + runs and found them brilliant. They never move. I was sceptical initially as I hate things in my ears and was sure that I wouldn't get on with them but hey they are just great. I even like the pea green colour. not cheap but for me worth it.
went and tried the sennheiser ones today - didnt buy any of them.
The ones that go over the back the head didnt sit against by neck/head so bounced about - and my ponytail just made it worse.
The ones that went around the ear that you could shape to your ear, were still too large for my tiny ears.
Sticking with my Philips....
i have tried the pmx 70 & had to send back - i dont think they were tested properly because after 30 mins of running sweat gains in your ears making the earphone swimmingly annoying - i can definately recommend though the pmx40 senneisher - this headband has a perfect fit- & delivers the sound is quite amazaing especially when running - i have tried about 15 different neckbands over the years & this pmx40 is the best around - u want be disapointed
Etymotic have a very good reputation... at a price.
They have a custom fit option as well
I've just had to replace my running headphones and found these running headphones reviews useful.In the end I chose the SoundMAGIC E30, because I wanted an earphone that isolates from external noise and I like to route the cabling out of the way. I run in Richmond Park (when I can) and on the treadmill in the gym, so there is no danger from traffic.
I've previously tried the Sennheiser PMX80, but found the sound quality a bit rubbish.
Soundmagic PL30 - Great Sound, never fall out and lots of ear pieces with them to find best fit.
Do a google search, there are plenty of reviews. They are around £30
Yep, I agree... the SoundMAGIC's are perfect for running or gym work. I just slammed my PL30's in the car door, so have upgraded to the new E30. The slightly smaller earpiece and softer edges makes it a little more comfortable. Sound is also improved over the PL30. A very nice product.
It took me a while to get the hang of the over ear cabling, until I figured out you have to slide the sleeve on the cable up to the back of the neck to keep it all tight. Genius!
My friend has one like that. But I'm not sure.. Maybe it really have some problems.
