Gonna get an ipod (mini? or whatever the f**) and need some headphones that wont fall off while im either jump roping/kicking the heavy bag etc.. basically i do stuff that involves a lot of rapid movement

 

Might strap it to my arms. I think I've seen some people do that, i dont know. still gonna need the headphones not to fall out/off my ears though.

 

Not too expensive, got like $300 to spend but thats including the mp3 (if you guys have a recomendation for that too that'd be cool, im assuming lots of people jsut use their phones now?)

I use Bose IE2's when I work out...and they've never fallen out...whether benching, running, jumping rope etc.....

Just tuck the cable in your shirt otherwise it might catch on something...which is with all wired headphones

I use Sennheiser MX300's, about 10$ online and my last pair lasted me 1 1/2 years of heavy use, jogging in the rain and sweating in the gym.
