Inspire Vivid by Yurbuds

I’ve tried countless pairs of ear buds and while running, none have ever stayed put as well as Yurbuds. The design of the buds makes it so they don’t budge, no matter how jerky my workout might be. They’re extremely durable, too. I carry them in my pockets and the cord has held up well. The sound still comes through perfectly even after using them for almost a year.
Find them here for $30.

Surge Sportwrap Waterproof Headphones by X-1

These headphones, which made it onto our list last year, are among the best waterproof headphones out there. The wrap-around design stays in place through flip turns and the expandable cord is convenient for all activities, both in and out of the water. Before you dive in, though, get a waterproof iPod or buy a waterproof case for your device.
Find it here for $60.

iSport Strive by Monster

While super grip and sound quality are major selling points for Monster, they have another rather unique claim to fame. Most other headphone brands are employing noise-canceling technology, but Monster leaves their headphones open to incorporate a bit of real-world sound. Useful in high-traffic areas, on ski slopes and during team sports, if you’re not able to zone-out completely consider these buds.
Find them here for $70.
