    Hey guys--

    I've been using the Klipsch S4 earbuds for a little while now - coupled with some large size Comply t-100 series foam tips.

    The sound is GREAT when they buds actually stay in the ear. I use them for working out and the buds just tend to keep slipping out. I lose all bass response pretty much when they aren't tight in the ear. Also, the Klipsch cords tangles SO EASILY - it's quite annoying. I've tried the earbud tips that came with the Klipsch and they are just "okay." They don't really create a tight enough seal to ensure bass response.

    Anyway, I'm looking for some great earbuds with good bass response that STAY in my ear when I workout and don't get jostled out.

    Thanks in advance.

    Oops, forgot about this thread. Now my earbuds are ripped and I need some new tips.

    Prefer to spend $100 or less. I'm willing to pay more if I know it will last for a good while.

    Really want them to STAY in my ear so I don't have to keep pushing them back in (as I said.) And want a good bass response. Also prefer noise-isolating features as well.

    So I guess I'm looking for a combo of tips plus earbuds with those features i mentioned.

    I hope it's okay for me to get an idea of some good earbuds too, since it's the subject of the thread. I want some decent bluetooth earbuds that can handle sweat for under $100. That's all the specs I care about.

    I might go for the Klipsch Si4- II.

    http://amzn.com/B008X8HZZO

    Looks like the new cord is tangle resistant. The old one was terrible for tangling. The only thing is, the tips that come with them don't block out all the other sound. Seems like foam tips are the only ones that do that - but I notice i keep having to push them in my ear which is annoying.

    Anyone have any "tip" advice?

    I've had Klipsch earbuds like that (with the same bud design).. wasn't a fan. They hurt my ears and fell out a lot.

    I've tried out a lot of different headphones and I finally stopped looking when I bought these:
    Bose MIE2I
    http://www.amazon.com/Bose-326223-0...&ie=UTF8&qid=1374701923&sr=1-1&keywords=mie2i

    They stay in. They're SUPER comfortable with small buds for me.. but they come with medium and large as well, so they'll fit just about any ears, i'm sure.

    I know people here seem to put Bose stuff down, because apparently there are better products that are less expensive, but I haven't found any that feel as good in my ears as these ones do. I have very sensitive ears and I love these ones.

    The Shure yellow foam tips also fit the S4 and are more robust-fuller foam with more staying power. They are a bit harder to put on that the Comply but I just widen the opening a bit with a nail to stretch it out for a minute, then it goes on and stays.
