I'm sure some of you out there have tried scores of ear buds for listening to music on your iPod while mountain biking (or other endurance activities). I want to know your opinions on which brands and models you think would best suit my needs:
- Small ear canals
- They can be noise-reducing because I tend to ride with only one ear bud, leaving my other ear free to hear the environment (other riders, rattlesnakes, etc.)
- I do like to use them in the gym, so noise-reduction to drown out the gym music would be good, but not must-have
- Comfort is essential, but so is stability in the ear (I don't want the things falling out with bumps, sweat, etc.)
- Good sound quality
Skull Candy headphones are the best I've tried. Great sound and they never fall out.
