Headphones. LOL! That was my hellish life for about 3 months.

When I worked on the XM Inno and Pioneer GEX project, I had to source headphones from China that met the sound spec requirements and hit our BOM constraints.

I pretty much stumbled into the maze of Chinese and Taiwainese headphone manufacturers the likes of which made my head spin. When I put the RFP out, I had boxes of headphones coming in for a solid month in all kinds of makes and configurations. My desk was covered in headphones.

Long story short - these things cost between .12 - .25 cents to make.
Even the money Etymotics and Shures - they're about $5 ex-factory cost.

I need to try some in-ear ones that won't crack out with my sweat when I'm working out.

Yes, I sweat when I work out. SHOCKING.

I got the Motorola S9-HD MotoRokr (bluetooth stereo headset). Looks great, sounds great... until you sweat on it. Then the volume becomes jammed and shorts out. And then you mail it back to Motorola and it takes 3 weeks to get a replacement.

Gone through 2 of them. You'd think a headset that is marketed to people who work out would be relatively sweat proof... wtf?

Anyway... if anyone has a recommendation on a good in-ear headset (wired/wireless) lemme know... The default iPhone ones just slip out of my ear when I'm jogging.. lamesauce.

^^ Ditto. Recommendations are welcomed.

In my opinion, the standard Apple headphones sound best to me. Sure, I have to make sure they stay in when I lift, but I'll take that if I get the lows and highs. I bought some in-ears, but damnit if there's no bass. They sound like poo.

The only time you're going to get a good "in ear" headphone that doesn't slip out is when you spend $$$.
First, forget the friction fit ones that sit on the outside of the inner ear. They never fit right - are either too small and fall out, or are too big and are painful after awhile.

You have to get the ones that you actually insert in the ear canal

The Etymotics are good. They have stepped silicone covers like a pair of swimming earplugs. The Shure have both the silicones and expandable foam covers (like the foamies you get at the gun range) the come in different sizes and that slip over the speaker and you insert in your ear.

Both are rock solid and will not fall out unless you're doing acrobatics or something.

Yeah. Both the silicones and foamies ones will degrade a bit over time and need to be replace. Not a big expense. They slip off the sound tube with a gentle tug.
Some usually throw in a few spares.

Just make sure to wipe them off after working out to get rid of moisture and sweat salts so they'll last longer.

As far as fit, the silicone ones have a stepped design so unless you have a HUGE ear canal, the steps will usually hold it snug.

The Shure's will come with 2-3 sized foamies for you to get the best fit.

As fare as sound quality, both are outstanding for what they are. You're not going to get a lot of bass out of the drivers (exception being the Shure SCL5's. They have have 2 drivers and an inline crossover) but your mids an highs are going to be nice and crystal clear. The cheap usually give you more bass but suck at clarity and reproduction.

I've ordered these, the in ear version, and their remote all of which suck. The apple knock offs were actually slightly larger in diameter. I'd give you the ones I bought.

Definitely give these sonys a shot, I've used them for a little over a year now for both riding and working out. If I use the wrong size bud they will slip out slightly when I get sweaty but they still stay in place thanks to the arm (if I use the small buds they stay in forever).

I just bought these http://www.skullcandy.com/shop/g-i-black-print.html

I'm on the fence. The instrumentals are a-mazing but the vocals seem a little muffled. For $70 I expected more. However, they are great for working out. they have 3 different cord levels (they have three cables in one) so if you've got your Ipod/listening device strapped to your arm you don't have excess cable swinging around getting stuck on whatever you're working out on. They're 5k times better than the stock iPod headphones though.

Personally, I would never buy a set of skull candy headphones if I was after good sound.

The reason I don't want to spend a lot of money on headphones is b/c they ALL eventually mess up with the constant pulling off the helmet. If you buy expensive headphones I would not reccomend them for riding.

Check out the ones I posted, I paid about $40 (cheaper online) and they're holding up great after over a years use.

just received mine. The headphones are decent, they have no bass whatsoever, the mic works flawlessly. Just did a test call and making calls with these headphones are more than acceptable. three for 8; I'm a satisfied customer.
