when I am not trying to sort out the foot issues of the peope of oxfordshire [and beyond] it has been known that I venture eiher outside or onto the treadmill at the gym for a bit of a plod, I say plod but I normally describe myself as running like ' a shire horse with a speech impediment' 

Anyway to get to the point, I like the next man likes a bit of music to sweat to, the ipod is permenantly welded to my arm when exercising but the problem I have is the earphones just keep dropping out my ears, not just the ordinary apple ones but i spent £30  on a pair of fancy sony in-ear earphones with an assortment of sized rubber bits and they still don't work every 2-3 minutes one [normally the left] just falls out, dangles around for a few strides then pulls out the otherone

my question is this....does anyone have any suggestions at to a decent set of earphones so i can prevent fallout

I had the same problem Footman - I got some cheap small over the head ones from the Apple Store - I read the reviews and people seemed to recommend them for running and they were right - never had a problem since. They only cost £15 and sound fine to me (though I am not a techie geek like some) Sennheiser PX10

Yeah - I've had the phillips over the ear ones before - they work well.  I thought theyd stopped doing them and have the Sennheiser ones - they still stay in, but tend to hurt my ears after 1hr or more.

I use the Phillips over-the-ear phones too, because I don't like a band over the top of my head (I don't have enough hair!). 

I do have to secure them a little though - a hold my iPod in my hand instead of using a band - so I run the wire around a safety pin which I then attach to my shirt at the back of my neck. Seems to work well.
