    They are somewhat pricey but the Bose SIE2i Sport Headphones are perfect for range time or working out. They are sweat and weather resistant and stay in place great. They also have a microphone so if you are attaching them to a smart phone you can take calls without removing them. I throw my iPod in my back pocket so the cord runs up my back while I am at the range and they stay in place great and remain comfortable for hours at a time. Can't beat the sound quality either for "sport" headphones. Good luck in your search.

    Sony has a strong lineup of buds based on price. I still use my 120$ set that I bought years ago and still love'em.

    I would recommend the jaybird freedoms. I have the JF3s and I believe there is a newer version out now. They are bluetooth, sweat resistant, and have a flexible cord in between the ear buds instead of the hard plastic like most sport headphones. They also come with rubber pieces on the bud that sit in the crease of your ear so they won't fall out while you are exercising.

    I second the Bose recommendation. I like the fact that I can still hear what's going on around me. I don't like the in ear noise canceling headphones because I can't hear contact. I purchased mine at Target.

    Bose. A little bit more than most but worth every penny. I use mine at the range, the gym and when I run and they are great!

    I have the Monster sport headphones. I didn't really think the in-ear locking would work but it seems to once you find the right adapter. The sound is decent, a little bass-y for me, but I'm not really an audiophile. I do like that you can rinse them off without destroying them.

    Some good suggestions above...for a little less coin Sennheiser/Adidas makes some decent ones also. Amazon and Newegg are about as good as anywhere.

    I've had the Adidas and jaybirds. I've also had some nikes in the past. The jaybirds are the best athletic headphones Ever. They stay in place, are light weight, and cordless is amazing. I got mine at best buy for $70ish?

    I use the Jaybird Freedoms and they work great. If you have the extra money get the Bluebuds X.

    +1. I have the Jaybirds as well and really like them. I have had mine for a year and a half now or so without incident. You may also check out some bone conduction headphones, cool technology, although I have no personal experience with them.

    Bose SIE2i are good sounding, but their wires fray after about a year. I'm on my 3rd pair. Once they fray, I send them back to Bose and wait 2 months and get my new pair.

    Are these really good for sport though? i have the bower and wilkins earbuds, and they are bad a**... but I'd never run with them. I can't imagine anything with a wired connection being better for the golf swing than bluetooth.

    I have these, I think I caught a sale or had coupon when I bought them in 2012. I have had no issues in 2 years with them.

    The SIE2i are their sport version from the sense that they are water/sweat resistant.. I have the non sport version and have god running in them a bunch of times (I sweat like a pig too) and they have even been completely fine. Mine are working on 4 or so years and still look/sound like new. The Bose products don't have nearly as deep of a sound as many companies, but, for the price, durability and still a fairly high (though shallow) level of sound they are worth every penny.

    If you dont mind size, the Sennheiser HD 201-203 headphones are an absolute steal. Never heard a better phone for under $50; lots of good reviews for the line on headfi, headfonia, etc. My personal favorites for just about anything on a budget.

    Actually, now that you've said it, for a right handed golfer Bose earbuds w/ the voice control are awful for golf. When I make a good swing and my chin hits my shoulder it turns off my iphone or messes with my volume. I wore them this weekend hitting balls at the range and ended up just taking them off because after each swing I would have to turn the music back on.



    So the Bose are good for sound, but they are terrible for golf and they fall apart.

    I love listening to music when I practice for long hours or in the gym. I have never found a pair of in ear buds that stay in.



    After tons of positive reviews, I ordered some 66 Audio Bluetooth (wireless) over ear headphones. Super good sound, stay in place even while running, and have hours and hours of playtime, as well as full iPhone control and answering capability.



    I went through Amazon and spent roughly $60 and even had them on my doorstep that evening!

    I strongly recommend Jaybird Bluebuds X. Here's an incredible review of them by MKBHD. Bluetooth, fit great in your ears and won't fall out, couple color options, long battery life, etc. I love mine!

    I have tried several different brands and the best I have found for me are the Monster Victory Sport. I had never found any that would stay in my ear until I bought these. I have practiced hitting balls as well as working out in the gym and they never came out after finding the correct size components for me.

    Have a pair of Jaybirds that do not seem to charge anymore. Not sure what happened... they were working great and then one day I plug them in to charge and the charging light didn't come on, won't turn on, etc. Anybody with Jaybirds experience this before? Thanks!

    I have never had a pain issue with the Jay Birds, but I don't thimk I've every worn them for more than an hour. As long as I don't have my B&Ws in for me than 4 hours, I have no pain. There's been a couple long plane rides I started to notice them on

    I wear my Bose ear buds for sometimes up to 6 or 8 hours sitting at my desk at work and no trouble.. actually, the ear pieces they have are super comfortable. About a couple minutes i cant even feel them.
