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.

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 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.
