Clip behind ear type would be best I think.

I had a pair like this and found that they were impossible to wear while wearing glasses, otherwise they were fine.

I found that with all the other noise that goes on when you're running, expensive headphones can be overkill. These are inexpensive, reasonable quality, and easily replaceable if they fall apart through wear and tear.

If you want to spend a bit more on something a bit nicer with the same earbud design, these are also good - and they have an asymmetric cable, so one of the leads goes behind your neck - which can be useful if you need to take them out, but don't want the buds flapping about all over the place. They're also pretty easy to drive.

Anyone recommend some that aren't inner ear jobbies?

My wifes ear canals are tiny, so she needs some that dont go in the ear canal since they wont even get close to fitting...

Triggering my pet peeve here.
I ABSOLUTELY HATE joggers with headphones/earplugs in. The sheer amount of spatial awareness you lose really frustrates me.
It is dangerous, and downright stupid. The only time it is acceptable is on private land or on a treadmill.

Applies to cyclists too.


And if you want to think about it from a jogging perspective , you are unable to hear your feet striking, or your breathing,

Of course you can hear your breathing, its pretty much louder than the music if you're as unfit as me :D

i Grados are excellent...

I like Grados, but the iGrado reviews seem to suggest they are rather flimsy to be out jogging with. Or am I worrying about nothing in your opinion????

Bit abrupt I agree, but the streets and pavements of Cambridge are full of a really dangerous mix of unaware cyclists and unaware runners. I've had many a near miss.

Cambridge is a bit of a special case though.

I've had no trouble - they seem no flimsier than any others. The neck band works really well too. Not only that but they sound very good indeed for £45. Not up with their £2000 model, but shedloads better than boomphones like Dre's Beats!

No, it is just my number 1 bug bear. It really. Really. REALLY . frustrates me.

Apologies for abruptness but it just winds me up something chronic. The amount of near misses I've had, and collisions i've seen are stupid. Lets say I want to cycle on the cycle path to work , and you can't hear me behind you , ringing my bell, etc, thats just stupid. Lets say you are cycling with head phones on, and someone hoots, or you can't hear the car coming behind you, or you cant hear the other cyclist coming behind you who is ringing his bell, or shouting, its just there is so much to hear with your ears, I dont see why you would ever want to remove yourself from hearing it. And it is dangerous. Taking risks that affect other people more than yourself is just not worth it in my opinion. If you wont listen to your surroundings yourself, why should anyone else take any notice of your surroundings

I was going to wear them on a treadmill in the gym. I wasn't planning on going for a jog on f1 day at the Gazza strip.

IME, wearing a headband or Buff Headwear like thingy is all that's needed to keep the in-ear earphones inside. If not, a flake of soft foam will help tremendously.

I've also had a headband with built-in, watertight earphones, but can't remember the brand name. Not very Hi-Fi, but worked very well.


best,
bert
