So I stepped on my flimsy logitech $25 UE100 while in a rush to answer the phone. now the little things are in pieces, like bread crumbs, so sad :(

but with every crisis comes opportunity (crisitunity) now I need to buy a new pair of earphones (or headphones) that I can use all the time, during any activity. including strenuous exercise. if you have any that fit the description and aren't easy to break, please recommend so i can buy, ears are feeling lonely :(

I've got a pair of these, they're comfortable enough to wear and have good sound and no matter what you're doing they aren't going to fall off (which was the main thing I got them for). Also has a little volume adjuster thingy that can clip on your sleeve or shirt or whatever if thats your deal.

You can opt out of viglink adds. A quick Google will show you how legitimately.

I truly hate links superimposed over someones writing. Generally people link words to interesting things (what they think are interesting at least), so I find it a rather insulting form of advertisement.

I have a couple of these. They're excellent. I sweat like Pat Rafter and these go out on 50k rides weekly. Battery gives about 3 hours playback. Cost $35 for a retail pack from Amazon. Hands free works really well, you just talk normally and everything sounds aok on the other end. Occasional Syncing issues but otherwise fantastic for $35.

I have had this exact same problem at the gym for a long time. Was seriously considering a thread such as this but now I have this one!

Those headphones look great Khel. Exactly what I have been looking for. Now to find a cheaper version of those :P. They are a bit pricey.

I have an earlier model (better looking) version of these: http://www.sony.com.au/product/nwz-w262

They're off the hook for exercise - no cords! Sound is good too, battery life huge, easy drag and drop mp3'ing folder.

Yeah, if the links were smarter and linked to the actual products being talked about, that would be good. But just company links, meh.

I have a pair of these Bose IE2. They are good in that they don't fall out when jogging, and external noise still gets in. So they are no good for the train, but are great for a lunch time jog.

I've got a pair of these, they're comfortable enough to wear

I had the Sennheiser PMX 680, but returned it for the following reasons:

1. No external sound blockage at all. Great if you're running on the road and still need to hear traffic. Terrible if you go to a gym where the first thing other people do is turn the TV on and put the volume on full.

2. The main cable coming from the headphones is too short and needs to be clipped onto a shirt if you don't want to hear cable swinging noises while running. Funnily enough the secondary cable coming out of the volume control towards your music device is long. Should have been the other way around! Many of the reviews on sites complain about the same problem.

3. I didn't find them comfortable whatsoever.

I've had the bose ones but they drove me mad because sweat would drip through the molded silicone earpiece and deep into my ear. They do sound epic though

Currently I am just using apple ones while riding and running but I am going through them like nothing else, they are not too happy with sweat

Those sennheiser ones look good khel - they're not the ones that actually create a tight seal are they? (can't wear those because my left ear is perf'd and hurts if I increase the pressure like those do)

Tiny as if that is expensive for headphones?

Nah, they don't create a seal or anything like that, they're essentially like ear buds on a frame that wraps around your ears/head and keeps them in place.

i have no idea what brand my earphones are but they seem to be unkillable and work well with decent bass, they have a brown look to them with tiny holes in the back for bass but have the right side earphone cable twice the length of the left earphone, its sort of strange really.

I've got some senheisser things that I use while at work. They fit in my ears and also act like earplugs and block out the sounds from all the noisy machinery. Combine them with an actual pair of earmuffs and I can't hear a bloody thing (other than music). Great for when I'm feeling antisocial.

Never tried stepping on them though.

I just use my Seinheisser CX300II when I run. And by run I mean when I use to run.

These are currently on catch of the day. Waterproof sounds good, though not all reviews are great.

Grabbed some Teac (I think?) $25 bud type earphones from Jb in town yesterday - they were great with nice bass and external noise cancellation until they somehow fell off into a drain about 4 minutes later heh. Easy come easy go, clearly not good for excercising though - as you were. :)

Get something with warranty.

My ATH A900 broke last week (not the jack) and audio technica australia doesn't cover puchases from amazon. They're only a few months old ffs
