ear bud / ear phones

Postby ceileigh » Sun Dec 06, 2015 10:56 pm

My brother wants ear buds/phones for running. He says the regular ones fall out of his (big ) ears :) I did a search of topics but didn't find much. Anyone have any favourites?

Try yurbuds - they are guaranteed not to fall out.

I believe that the Running Room and Sport Chek sell them.

At one time I had some that stuck in my ears like earbuds but they also had the headband to hold it on your head... Maybe something like that?

When I wear ear buds for activities in the gym, I found the only ones that stay in place have a soft plastic hook that fits around my ear. All the other ones work their way out of my ears--it seems even my ear canals sweat. The sound is not fabulous, but is good enough, and they are comfortable. I don't know the brand; I found them years ago at Canadian Tire.
