Earphone Designs That Stay Put

I have the hardest time running without music. In fact, once when I arrived at the gym and realized I had forgotten my earphones, I swiftly turned around and left (something I am not proud of). Something else that gets to me is when my earphones pop out of my years mid-run. So, I did a little research and found some earphones that are supposed to stay put throughout your workout.

1. Philips Earhooks
For earhooks that hook around your ear, these flexible earphones by Philips come highly recommended. They provide decent sound quality, stay snug and secure in your eats, and come with a 1.2 meter-long cable so you can pop your iPod in your jacket or pant-pocket. And they only cost $7!


2. Sony Spiral Neck-Band Headphones
If you're a fan of the wraparound-style headphones, check out Sony's lightweight Spiral Neck-Band headphones ($30) that come with a cord adjuster so you can get the exact length you want. They offer an excellent deep bass sound quality, too. The headphones are also protected in a moisture guard so now worries about heavy sweating. 


3. Shure Sound Isolating Earphones
These earphones from Shure ($100) are for runners who are adamant about exceptional audio output. With balanced armature speakers and sound isolation technology, you're guaranteed to hear the music the way it was intended. Shure also includes multiple earlobe attachments so you can get the perfect fit.


4. Innovelis Budfis
Inexpensive and functional, Innovelis created these Budfits earphone attachments ($9) for all iPod and iPhone earbuds. If you have a few pairs of Apple earphones lying around but don't use them because they fall out while running, these flexible add-ons will keep your earphones safe and secure. 



5. Sennheiser Twist-to-Fit Earbuds
Both sweat and water resistant, these twist-to-fit earphones ($65) ensure you are getting the most comfortable fit. Sound quality is stellar with neodymium magnets for detailed sound, and each pair comes with an ear adapter set, a cable clip, and a carrying case.
