    I'm intrigued by the Apple In-Ear headphones. Only issue is that I would like to use them at the gym. Are they likely to fall out of my ears when i'm running? Anyone have experience with using these in a fairly athletic environment? Thanks!

    Thanks for the tip - so the in-ear buds fall out when running - anyone else have similar experiences? Thanks for that link - i'll take a look at those. Although, those are in-ear buds too, though - worried those might fall out as well!

    With the Apple's I'll be more worried about the horrible standard of the mic and buttons... little sweat and the pod is kaput... search around you'll find many instances..

    The VModa is good. The Etymotic HF is imo better!

    If you want something cheaper with great sound, go out to bestbuy and buy a pair of iLuvs, I dont know the model number, but they look exactly like the VMODA Vibes except the red part is silver on them, love em

    I've also had terrible experience with these: they always come out.

    Plus, I'd advice against these in-ear headphones: they tend to damage hearing due to high volume and/or closeness of the sound source to the inner ear.
