Am having real problems with my headphones. Every time I start running they pop out my ears. Getting really frustrating.
Headphones: Am having real problems with my... - Couch to 5K
Two solutions: Over-ear headphones, or just run with your phone on speaker (if you're listening to podcasts on your phone?). I do this with endomondo, which calls out laptimes every km. The 'start/stop' app version of c25k might work well like this, unless you don't mind running around with the cheesey c25k music audible to all around you?
I had a similar problem. I also caught the lead a couple of times and pulled my phone out of my pocket. Not good.
You can get 'sport' earphones with hooks to go round or inside your ears, and even better you can get bluetooth headphones that go over the ears and cling on quite nicely.
I did a search for "bluetooth headphones" and possibly "bluetooth headphones mpow". All cheap bluetooth headphones have problems though so use them immediately and be prepared to send them back if they fail (usually batteries).
I find sport earphones work well - any other kind falls off even if I am sitting! Next best thing is wearing a headband over the headphones (have a pair of these amazon.co.uk/Philips-SHQ320...)
I also have problems with normal earbuds and rarely use them anyway but risked buying some Yurbuds last week as they were only £9.99 in Sports Direct. They are very comfortable and 'lock' into your ear and so far, they've stayed put, even when I've accidentally tugged the wire. Also come in different sizes so even fitted my tiny ear canal! (size 4)
same problem here with my earphones, but strangely enough some days they stay put for the whole outing, but most days i end up saying a few choice words after they have fallen out half a dozen times. I have looked online at the wrap around the ear earphones and wondered if they were any better, looks like i'm following misswobble to tesco ! thanks for the tip.
I'm also using the yellow wrap around Karrimor headphones from SPorts Direct for £5 since i started in January. They have made a big difference. My intention was to use them as a cheap starter set to check that this type worked and then replace them with a bluetooth set but they are still continuing fine.
