Default Workout Headphone Recommendations

i recently decided to stop using In Ear buds since now when i use them my right ear has buds fallout very easy while my left ear holds the ear bud secure.

Any wrap around or over the ear headphones that are worth buying for working out/ running?

price range up to $100

side question.

someone recommended Jaybird Sportsband. When i looked them up on amazon GOgroove AirBand Wireless popped up as a result.. Are these the same ? just different name ? or are they separate style headphones that just tool alot alike
if its got boobs or an engine ... your gonna have problems ...

I used the iGrado's as I hate in the ear style headphones. They are not heavy on bass at all but are clear. I haven't really checked out others for comparison in that style. I have no problems with them staying on if I run or do other gym activities.

I run daily with shure in ear headphones, the black foam earbuds expound in my ear canal, and create a nice snug seal. They come in varying sizes. I don't know what in ear monitors you are using now, but the black foam buds work for other iem's as well. Those grados look loud

found another set of blue isports for $65 bucks

then today i found the Sony MDR-AS35 for $9

Those are exactly what i was looking for. Not the best sounding but best fitting. I'll have to try them out during a workout this week before i decide, but even if they dont work out, i'll probably end up keeping them for $9

On a side note. I can score the Bose SIE2 for $95

try these. These have a good balance with warmth, and a little extra kick in the bass department. The ones you listed look weird with the plastic clips. If you have >$100 budget, I'd go with the shures

p.s- if you go with the shures, use them this way

if you want the best workout headphones IMO are the Bose IE2. i use to run track and cross country so id run on different terrains. the silicone earbuds are soft and comfortable and sometimes i forget im wearing earbuds.

im not a huge earbuds guy(mostly headphones) but these give me comfort and quality sound while not breaking the bank. they come in at the 100 mark. im not a fan of in ear buds as they fall out of my ear so the "fin" on the IE2 is worth every penny i will always buy these now.
TV: LG 42LE5400 LED
Receiver: Pioneer Elite SC-61 7.2
Speakers: Bowers & Wilkins CM5 & CMCC, M1
SUB: Bowers & Wilkins ASW610
Blu-ray Players: Sony Sony S5100
Game System: Custom PC Setup
Cables: Audioquest Chocolate Cables & Audioquest Rocket 33/Type 4

alright so after some use.

I hate the isports.... even though i got them for cheap they are uncomfortable. Sound quality is great but without the comfort they sucks.

on the other hand ...

the Sonys i found at the outlet are AWESOME... comfort is an A++ qound quality is ok lol.

still on the search for a good over the head headphones for working out.

thinking about the Jaybird sports band next...

after using the Sony MDR-AS35W for 2 weeks and being very satified with the fit but wanting more out of the sound side...

I took a plunge and decided to pull the trigger at frys for the Monster Ntune... ill see how they are for working out

alright after checking out Headfi someone recommended the JVC ha-eb75 at frys for $13.. they sucked BUT i also noticed frys had the Klipsch s3 for 25 so i picked up those and so far so good.

the only con i see is they are a bit low in the volume but other then that i havent had to adjust them during regular use.

this week ill be testing them during my workouts.

Default Sony Ultra Lightweight MDR-W08L

I know these are fairly cheap, but they seem to work for me. Not much in the bass department, but will get the job done.

I looked up the phrase 'Getting It Done' in the dictionary and it said, "See Marvel Cinematic Universe 2008-present".
