There are ear buds which fit inside the ear canal instead of this round ones that look like smarties and keep falling out of my ears.

The ones I use are Senheiser which cost me about £40.

They came with rubber covers which alter the size to fit your ear canal.

Just out of interest, what headphones are you using now? I've never had earbuds fall out, but all the ones I've ever bought have come with different size buds to suit different ears.

 

I've got some Sennheiser CX earbuds and they don't fall out even when I'm jogging.

Tesco do some in ear phones for a fiver. They sound OK and don't fall out because they have foamy bits stuck onto them..

 

Failing that, AKG do some lovely headphones for a very reasonable price. Available from Richer Sounds amongst other places.

Just recently found myself in a similar boat as you, I've been considering these

price is about £35 and seem to have decent reviews.

I bought some Sony headphones at John Lewis six years ago, good but not spectacular sound quality for 30£ sound happens to be one thing Sony still does well!

Another vote for AKG, they make some awesome headphones.

 

The K451's fold up flat, making them very portable.

 

Don't forget to avoid places like eBay, as often the crap on there is fake as fake can be.

Sennheiser ear-buds especially are nearly all fakes on eBay.

Holy cow, how much do you people pay for earphones?!

 

£30, £35 and even £40?!

 

I get mine from Sheffield's favourite discount store (The Land of Pound)

Same here, good fit and great sound quality.

It's like anything else, you get what you pay for. i use Bose earbuds which cost £85 but the sound is superb.
