I've tried reading the recommendations for headphones, but can't seem to sort through and pinpoint what I'm looking for. I'm certain this has been asked before, so I do apologize for what is undoubtedly a repost.

What I'm looking for are a pair of headphones (I think IEM is what I'm looking for), that I can use while I'm running. Primary things I'm looking for are pretty good sound quality (I listen to mostly pop music, I know, I know, please don't judge!), headphones that will reliably stay in my ear, and if possible have the skip track/pause/microphone for iPhone as well.

I'm on a budget right now so I'm not looking to spend more than $20-$30 right now. I like the look of just the plain old iPhone earbuds, so I don't "need" anything too fancy or convoluted with straps and whatnot.

What are the recommended headphones for my purpose and specifications?

Your help will be greatly appreciated!
