    Guys

    Any advice on a good set of ear phones that are in the $30-$40 price range that will stay in ear well for working out and handle the moisture that is generated while sweating. I have been going through various types over the years and never seem to find something that I like or will hold up.

    Thanks
    Jeff

    I've got some Philips earphones that are in-ear but have the hook that goes over the ear. They sound good and stay put, even on my sweaty head. They even sound pretty good.

    Amazon.com: PHILIPS SHS4843/28 SPORT BUDS (BLUE)-PHL484328: Camera & Photo

    I made the decision not to get the sound-isolating ones with the little rubber cups because I might need to hear something going on around me

    Wow, I would not want that thing bouncing on my neck. The earbuds would fall out too.

    I have a super sweaty head. No earbud is safe.

    I need the ear clip type....I sweat quite a bit. All the ear bud style seem to fall out while I am working out. Any others more like the Phillips type.

    I love the Yurbuds line. You can get different sizes to fit your ear, sweat resistant and good sound

    I can't do in-ear either.

    These are cheap and work well. The over ear hook holds them in place, and replacement ear pads are cheap should you need them. I went through about 4 pair of different phones before landing on these.
