I have a gear hate question, for you guys who listen to music while running, do you have any tips on how to stop the wires from slapping your face or wrapped up in your arm as you run. i wear my galaxy on my arm and the wires really do annoy . Thanks.

Wrap the excess wire around your phone before you put it in the arm holder. At least then there will be less to flap about.

go to the pound shop, buy a nokia/whatever old phone hands free thing, they come with a wire clip, then just clip the cable just below the Y split to the front of your shirt/collar 

reduced the bouncing massively, stops them pulling out your ears too.

You could switch to a discreet waist pack and feed the cable down under your t-shirt and out of the way. I know the arm bands are popular but I have never got on with them for the same reason.

i hated armbands, i switched to a belt too, much more comfortable and it has gel loops, but i even ditched that and just bought a clip ipod nano, even less bother again.

tuck em in your t-shirt?
ipod shuffle is really good for running, as you just clip it to wherever is more comfortable.

wow, i'm amazed that your post has been up for 6 hours and nobody has flamed you for wearing headphones whilst running, i'd have expected someone to compare you to a drink driver by now. It's usually an issue that brings out the vitriol in people.

I think it's the fact he hasn't said he was wearing them in a race.
I think that's what gets people's backs up.

I always run the cable up my back which means all the excess is tucked down between my shoulders.  As Marc S mentioned, my sennheisers have a clip that attaches to my collar, so gravity doesn't end up pulling the cable down and away from my ears.

+1 for the ipod nano as well (normally tucked into my shorts pocket) - none of this Android rubbish

Oh right are we runners not meant to wear headphones/earphones then don't forget im new to all this and for me i find that music helps..... The waist pack sounds good but don't it rub or iritate after a while cheers.

Cheers Jason, that's more like it

Dont worry LL, its an age old debate on these forums, some people get so agressive over the whole thing.

especially if your wearing during races!! 

i personally dont wear them but each to there own.

Well i guess with runners being such friendly chaps you got to have something to hate..... I go to the gym, i hate people that read mags on the exercise bikes and crap music to work out to. I cycle too and hate busses. .

nah, get one like the spibelt (or the much cheaper copy that sports direct sell) they are soft, comfortable and dont bounce.
