Can anyone let me know any decent headphones for running which don't fall out of your ears and don't pack up when they get damp please?

I got some cheap ones from Argos for about twelve quid and they're not bad.  They clip over the ear.

I Had those to and they packed up after a few months in one ear.  Which is ok for me because if I wear them outside I only ever have one ear on so that I can her whats happening around me.  They are just the sports one, that hook over the ear.

I've got a pair of <a href=http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-PMX70-Sportline-Neckband-Headphones/dp/B000FJD5IA/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/203-1903008-2221521?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1193850504&sr=8-1 these </a>.  They don't move and sound good too.  I've worn them for over 3 hours at a time without trouble.

Don't know what happened there but the link works.

I've got a pair of the 'argos' ones as above. Just starting to wear out,after a year! Keep them in a pouch in my car with one of those little moisture retaining bags that come with trainers etc. Bargain, and good quality sound.

Another vote for the Sennheiser.  I've got the MX-70, which is without a neckband, but there are various sized earpieces that come with the product to ensure perfect fit.  Never had them fall out.  The sound quality is excellent.

I've been using the Sennheiser MX75, which have a twist to fit in ear system that prevents them coming loose or falling out of the ear when exercising. Excellent product, comfortable and they stay in place.

I went for the head band as I've had varuious over ear types which have been OK but start to irritate after a while on long runs.  And I just don't get on with in-ear types.  The headband ones just don't move at all.  Marvellous!

Thanks for all your comments so far - I really appreciate you taking the effort to help!

Actually, mine are the MX-75 as well, not MX70, as I thought.

i have those phillips ones from argos, take out the extra cover for £1.50 and you can replace them when they pack in. ive gone through 3 pairs in 3 years but only paid for one!!

Sennheiser don't know the model number but I'd guess they are the ones everyone else is recommending - £29.99 and worth every penny.  I've spent years looking for a pair that don't fall out of my ears or twist around so that I'm listening in mono.

Another recommendation for the Sennheiser PMX70.  They stay put no matter how much jiggling goes on or how sweaty you get.

 Just seen that the link to Amazon above has them at £15 which is a bargain compared to the normal £30 price tag!!

I've had a pair of these for over two years, and use them three times a week for around 45 mins at a time. Good sound and good value too.

I've been lurking on this thread for a bit as I need more jiggle-proof phones. Mine are Sony clip-on-ear type, but they jiggle loads and don't snug up enough to get a good sound. They're better with a headband over them though. I've sent off to Amazon for a pair of those Sennheisers that you all seem to like, I got the over the ear type as they seem the most practical and everyone rates them as comfy and suitable for running etc. Plus, Sennheiser are a a proper headphones brand.

I'll post thoughts when I get em!

I know this is an old thread, but does anyone have any good recommendations for running headphones? 

I've been looking at these Sennheiser running headphones, but would be interested in comments and other ideas.  I've also been consider the Shure SE series in ear sound isolating earphones.

I have the OMX70 and really like them. Sound quality is good too.

I also have a pair of Shure e4c but there's no way I'd wear those for anything other than at home, on the plane etc as the noise isolation is so effective.
