These headphones are AMAZING. If you're like me, regular earbuds refuse to stay in your head. Any time you move, they fall out. Not a problem with these. The cord is designed to loop over the back of your ears, so the earbuds themselves nest perfectly inside the ear. They weren't going ANYWHERE.
They're a bit pricey, retailing for $39.95 (I got mine on eBay for about $10 less, and amazon is selling them even cheaper), but I found them to be well worth the expense.

I do not have good hearing and I want to protect what I have left of it,so, when I go to blow-dry my hair,I put in EARPLUGS in my ears. Then as I am blow-drying my hair,my ears are not subjected to the LOUD DECIBELS emanating from the blow-dryer! The blow-dryers today are WAY too loud and CAN damage your hearing over time [however--I did damage to my ears with too LOUD radio headphones in my youth!].
If you run with earbuds and have trouble keeping them in your ears, use a tiny binder clip attached to your shirt or jacket placed below your chin to keep the weight of the wire from pulling the buds out of your ears. Coupled with putting your earbuds in your ears with the cord coming up, over, and around the back of your ear should keep them where they belong.
I like to get caught up on recorded TV shows, but they absorb so much time. When no one is home, I play them, and "STEP" around the living room in large circles with my pedometer in my pocket. It's easy to get 10,000+ steps in per day this way.
Another way to enjoy stepping is with audiobooks and a comfy pair of headphones.
