What kind of headphones/earbuds do you use when climbing, skiing, hiking, trail running, etc? I usually buy cheap($20 and under) earbuds but go through them pretty fast. I'm looking for something with a sturdy-ish cord that won't wear out too quickly and something that will stay on/in my ears while doing the activities mentioned above. Any advice?

Awesomeness!

The new iPod ones (new shape) are pretty good. I go through a lot of them too. I find its like most gear, if you spend more money they last longer. The cheap bastard ones don't last and don't stay in my ears.

Looking at a 5.7 crack with Nick

I snowboard with skullcandy hesh 2 and love the skullcandy titan for buds.
Skullcandy, in my eyes, is the best brand for sound and durability. Yurbuds fit really well though, definitely worth a look.

When I was a bum at Frey

For climbing like to throw my iphone in a shoulder pocket and play theough the speaker but for running/ mtbikimg have yet to find something better that the Bose in ear headphones. Even good enough for the motorcycle and have lasted for about 2 years and going strong

Leading up pitch 2 of Moby Dick, Cochise Stronghold, AZ

If someone tried to give me a pair of Skull Candy's I would say no. I have been enticed many times by the Skull Candy sales and have been disappointed every time. I have never had a pair of earbuds last more than six months. My brother bought a nice DJ pair and they lasted two months before they just stopped working one day. I called Skull Candy and told them I had a box of broken headphones for them and they said if I had that many then they had been abused and they would not warranty them.

Yes I have some Skull Candies, but Sam Jackson said it best

I posted a similar question a while back on here and got some good advice, which was buy the cheapest ones you can possibly find, because they all seem to fall apart.
