For those of you with the Yurbuds - which style do you recommend?

The shortest ones I've seen are 15". They are called Short Buds by Far End Gear - available at Amazon.com. For ones that don't fall out, try YurBuds. They are longer, but great.

Thanks for the topic. I've actually stopped running with music since about the March timeframe. I'm not sure that I will train with music at for this race as I am doing Rock N Roll which means I'll have music to sprint too every mile or so. However, my husband needs new ear buds for his weight lifting and I want to try a marathon after September so these suggestions are great. Keep them coming!

I use sport earbuds that curve around the ear. They generally stay in place but what I really want to find are earbuds with just a short cord. I wear my ipod near my collar bone & don't need 3 feet of wire flopping around when I run.

Mind the Gap! between what we know we should do and what we actually choose to do.
My right earpod kept falling out (sooo annoying), so I went to walmart & bought a earpod silicone cover (set of 2) for $5.00 & put it onto the pod. It's hard to describe, but it's the same material as the ipod nano covers, but it goes onto the ear pod. Hasn't fallen out since.

I can never find any earbuds I like. I run in these behind the ear headphones http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CJTR8

I purchased a pair of IFROGZ Earpollution earbuds and I love them, the sound quality is great and they even stay in place in my left ear where I have a tragus piercing. These can be purchased at Wal-Mart.com for $10 www.walmart.com/ip/IFROGZ-Headphones

I concur w/the yurbud suggestion. I've been using them for over a year and have had no problems. They seem to be at all the expos.

Today my left ear is plugged up from my sweaty run last night because of my dang earbud. I know, kinda gross.
