The new Sennheiser/adidas PMX 680 sports earphones will change that on the first listen. These sweat-proof, neckband 'phones deliver outstanding, high-energy stereo sound without the need for readjustment or the trash can.
Innovative Neckband Design
Engineered on legendary Sennheiser/adidas Performance, the incredible neckband holding mechanism is comfortable and stable--eliminating the problem of earbuds falling out of your ears. The secure neckband fit works with any size or shape head, and includes a detachable extension cable with clothing clip to enhance wearing comfort and eliminate tangles.
The neckband vertical transducer system provides a comfortable, secure fit that won't fall out during your workout. Further, the PMX 680 has a universal fit for any size or shaped head to ensure long-term comfort without sacrificing stability. A convenient in-line volume adjuster keeps you in control of your tunes while a detachable extension cable lets you position your MP3 player where you want it.
The DuPont Kevlar reinforced cabling guarantees durability and flexibility where other sport headphones can't--even in cold temperatures. A sweat-proof, water-resistant construction lets you go your hardest during any off-season.

Now, this product is good for running. It does not fall of, and is very comfortable. It doesn't have that constant "plunger effect" that ear buds may have for every step you take. It allows ambient noise to come in (this is a feature, not a defect), so if you're looking for headphones to isolate sound, these are not the one. You will hear traffic.
When I run with these though, one side always feels looser than the other, and is a minor but manageable annoyance. The "buds" aren't replaceable, and are only covered by optional foam sleeves, similar to the old iPhone ear buds. I usually take them out, as I run in the rain and don't see any added benefit from the foam covers.
My other complaint is the "extension" cable that they put in doesn't have a proper clip for your clothing, and is a tiny bit heavy, so it tends to bounce up and down pulling on the upper clip when you run. The clip they put in isn't a gator type one, but rather similar to ones you see on the lid of a pen (which has very limited places you can slide into). I suppose you can move the upper clip to the bottom to lessen the bouncing, or have the extension cable clipped into your collar. Buying a third party extension cable (with a simple female end and male 3.5 mm end on the other side) might be better, as I see the volume control nothing but an annoyance and hard to reach.
Overall functional, but in terms of the price, it could have been designed better.
I am very excited as previous headphones fall off constantly.
I ran long distance, and in fact I use this one for a marathon.
I don't know if anyone experience this before, but when you are running for 4 hours, after that I feel the pressure pushing through my ears. So, I thought you need an alternate earphone after 4 hours? Or take it off and sing to yourself.
While I don't usually run 4 hours straight with this headphone daily, an h0ur workout does fine. Even going through fast hills and an speeding with my mountain bike.
Sound quality is great - not perfect but around 7/10. This ain't high end, so this meet my expectation. I like the volume control that comes with it. I like the sleep design....trust me, if you run for continuous 4 hours, the small, lightweight design is a perfect plus.
The cord is long enough - it fits in the pocket of my cargo pants.
Overall, I'd say 4/5, because of the pressure I felt as I wore it for a long period of time.
Lightweight, good price, great sound quality - I recommend this to anyone.
Thanks amazon for the timely delivery.
Secure and comfortable fit. The headphones spring back to closed position with sufficient force without digging into the ears. The ear buds have removable soft rubber covers (and foam covers which I have not tried). The design has a smooth finish including the thumb wheel volume control which is located way below the collar. As a comparison, my Samsung Galaxy S 3 headphones volume control always gets caught on my shirt collar, causing them to fall off during my work commute. This one is so much better! The case material is thick and feels durable and no draw strings but uses a velcro seal to close it securely. Delivered as expected!
The treble response could be better.
+ Complete peace of mind about headphones staying on
+ Excellent sound quality for the price
- Headband is a little large (and I wear L/XL helmets), but once you get used to it it's very comfortable
- Sound quality great but not amazing. Rough quantification: stock iPod headphones = 3/10, DiddyBeats = 8/10, this would be a 7/10.
I'm nitpicking on the cons but overall very satisfied and would definitely recommend these headphones.
