Recommendations please oh wise Fetchies. I lost my Sennheiser CX Sports a while back :-( and need to replace them. Don't want headband type ones, just good quality sound at a sensible price that are reasonably sweatproof.

I like yurbuds, they fit well and don't fall out, I think the sound is fine, though I'm not fussy as usually listening to podcasts

*watches* as in the market for some bluetooth ones as I'm fed up of lynching myself.

I've been using Shure in-ear phones since before I started running. They usually last around 2 years before the cable gives up the ghost. I found a solution with my last pair in that the cable is replaceable - I.e it plugs in to the actual earpiece rather than being soldered in.

So last time the cable gave up I was able to replace just the "cheap" bit and not have to replace the "expensive" bits.


"Genuine" Shure replacement cables were a bit toppy, I thought. So I bought a cheaper copy.

In short, I like Shure sound quality. Not entirely convinced by their build quality.

I've got Yurbuds and found they are the only ones for me that don't fall out.
