Do you use them when working out? For exercise like running, where I'll sweat a lot, I've found nothing better than the $10 cheap sony over the head earbuds. The loop over your head keeps them from wiggling out, and they're durable and cheap to replace from damage. For lifting, I use a $40 pair of sony earbuds which sound much better, and since there is a chance of damage to the wire when putting weights down etc. they're not too expensive if you need to replace a pair. I've tried routing the wire under my shirt, but that tends to "drag" them out of my ears, which is really annoying.
