I have tried so may sets of earbuds and headphones. You will be absolutely blown away by how good these $50 headphones sound. As a bonus, they fold up and have a carrying case. They even come in Apple white if you desire that.
I run with my iPod regularly... most weeks close to every day. I sweat a lot, and every once in a while it seems as though some sweat gets into the headphone and it dies... sometimes it'll come back, but the sound is horrible after that happens.
Anyone have any advice for something that would be more resistant to liquid getting into them? Also... because I use them so much while running, they get a lot of wear and tear so they don't exactly get the greatest care. I don't care about sound quality, I just want something not too expensive that will not break regularly while running with them.
