Suggestions?

I used to always wear a great pair of old-school, sony headband, foldable earphones. But they don't make them anymore. And the ones they made to replace them suck.

I forked out some cash and bought the Sonnheiser PMX80s last year and they have been good. But I need to use the clip they come with otherwise the cord pulls. And the clip can get all twisted and annoying. And I wan't something simpler. Something I can just throw on my head and go.

I'd love any tips!

I use these: Cheap and they last OK. I'm on my second pair in two years.

I don't run with music much these days (I just got kind of tired with the small complications that come with it), but when I did, I used the same ones John does - those work great, and are cheap, and never come off...

I bought these, last week, and gave these a, uh, trial run on Friday. While they stayed put on my ear, the quality of the sound is very tinny compared to the ear phones provided with my iPhone.

As a follow-up, I went to Amazon to start the return process and selected 'defective' and explained why. I selected 'refund' and hit enter. The response was (paraphrased), "You can keep them and we'll still give you the refund."

I'm not going to use them, but I can now give them to somebody else. I guess it would've cost Amazon too much to have UPS ship it back.
