to wonder how runners get their ear-phone-things to stay in?

Mine keep falling out! Or do I really have to shell out £40+ for some "sport" ear buds? Blimey, I wouldn't pay that for the phone itself...

these stay in for me smile

I run with normal ones. They have little rubbery bits on the end but I think they are meant for comfort rather than anything else. They do stay in though.

I have some like nagoo's that hook round the ear. Much less faff.

I have apple ones, helpfully labelled left and right, which really made a difference as designed to work in each ear. My son runs with proper headphones, cool maybe if you're 13.

Hairband/sweatband over them as well has always done the trick for me.

parakeet Mon 02-Sep-13 19:50:55

OK, £10 I can live with. Am going to try the hook ones. Thanks!

I have these £3.50 from sports direct

Mine fall out occasionally, but they fall out when I'm walking about too so it's not something that bothers me.

I have ones that are designed for each ear, so they sit in really well. I too would never pay £40 for ear phones! I got them in Canada, but you can get them from Argos here

These have been brill for me

They were a tenner in tesco a while back!

Shock and water proof too, you can stick them in the washing machine.

parakeet Mon 02-Sep-13 20:13:16

Ooh, I like the sound of £3.50 even better than I do £10. MN rules!

I have those Phillips ones, but they still come out unless I use the smallest ear cover things - you need to get the right size for you earholes.

worthitornot Mon 02-Sep-13 20:20:24

Wilkos have some three quid ones which are good if you'd got little ear holes ;-) they're in bright colours

CMOTDibbler Mon 02-Sep-13 20:21:04

I have those Sports Direct ones too. In fact, apart from my shoes, all my running stuff is from there

HaveALittleFaith Mon 02-Sep-13 20:21:25

smile I got them last week, used them on Saturday and realised near the end of my run and hadn't thought about my headphones at all (I normally faff with them a lot!).

IsaacCox Mon 02-Sep-13 20:22:53

I have ones like Nagoo, that go around the ear from Poundland- can you guess how much for? grin

FamiliesShareGerms Mon 02-Sep-13 20:26:39

I think some people (like me!) just have the sort of ears that don't hold headphones in sad

misskatamari Mon 02-Sep-13 20:29:23

I can't stand headphones that are the bud ones that really go in your ear - I feel like its just really gross when exercising (maybe I just have really sweaty ears confused). The ones that hook round your ears are a godsend - quite often tricky to find decent ones tho which always confuses me as they're just brilliant!

misskatamari Mon 02-Sep-13 20:29:59

Wow Isaac I will be stocking up at poundland!

bonzo77 Mon 02-Sep-13 20:44:10

I find the normal in ear ones fall out. Even the ones with the hook thing over the ear. The only ones that work for me are the ones on a sort of Alice band, though they're in-ear ones not the ear muff variety.

TidyDancer Mon 02-Sep-13 20:55:11

The Apple ones are terrible for staying in while running. I like them otherwise, sound quality seems good etc, but they are not great shapes.

I think the ones I bought were jvc brand.

cece Mon 02-Sep-13 21:56:46

Mine only fall out when I ignore the labels for left and right ear.

littlewhitebag Mon 02-Sep-13 22:04:40

My DH bought me These

They are major expensive but they stay in and i get no ear pain with them.

Hedgepig Mon 02-Sep-13 22:05:26
