Looking for a good set of headphones, but have some requirements:

#1.) Need to fit an iPod or iPhone (standard jacks, so that shouldn't be an issue)
#2.) Can't be earbuds (they slip out of my ears - I know it sounds crazy, but I've never been able to use earbuds - even have had people help me with them, only for them to slip out at the slightest move)
#3.) Can't be too bulky - these would be used mostly for working out on the treadmill or other forms of exercise
#4.) Good sound quality - I'm not looking to break the bank and spend $100 on a pair of headphones, but I don't want them to sound like crap either)
#5.) Cord long enough to reach to my waist with some slack.

Can anyone assist?

Have you looked around in Tech Talk? That's usually where a question like this is asked.

I use Sennheiser PMX70's for working out. Sound quality is pretty damn good considering the phones are sweat proof and meant for sport use. Sennheiser has since replaced mine with the PMX80, which appears to be getting very good reviews:

I have absolutely no idea why this was posted here....total accident. Just went searching for it and realized I couldn't find it.

Mods, can you close the thread please? Thanks.

These kick ass. I own them, love them. Very smooth and good rich bass. :)

Well, someone moved the thread I started in Otter into this one as well, without telling me or even leaving a link up. Just found THIS after searching over there. :shakes head:

In any event...those look pretty good, Sonic...I'll give them a shot. Thanks!

I just got a pair of the Sennheiser PMX70. I go through a pair of headphones once or twice a year, so I've tried many different brands and styles. So far I really like the PMX70. They have a neck band that goes over the ears and behind your neck. Amazingly they stay in the ears very well. I've had the problem with ear buds falling out in the past, but these are great. Since the PMX80 has replaced the PMX70, you can get the PMX70 cheap now.

If always had problem with both earbuds and ones that go over your head while working out. Got a pair of these (http://www.amazon.com/Koss-KSC75-Portable-Stereophone-Headphones/dp/B0006B486K/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_c) and love them. They work great and sound great. So good I got 2 more pair of them!!
