    The more 'classic' earbuds I have from my iPhone 4s work great. The newer ones that you're all familiar with don't seem to work all that well for me as one of them seems to fall out all of the time. Do you guys have that issue? Are there any tricks to have it stay in? When I was running in the colder weather I would wear a knit cap and ensure it covered my ears so the buds did not fall out. How about you guys?

    Look into 3rd party loops to attach to them... Or just find a pair of the older style if those work better for you... Or 3rd party replacements with better fit...

    Typically, the  earbuds stay put in my ears, but if I try to run/jog then yeah, they'll fall out.

    If I'm just relaxing and not doing anything, yes the apple earbuds stay put, but the minute I start any activity they slip out. I honestly prefer the BOSE earbuds much better.

    I buy generic foam covers and they keep the Apple Earbuds in my ears just fine... even during jogs and workouts, and I've looked at these loop/ cover things but haven't tried them yet

    Yes, and I stopped trying to wear those blasted pods. I got me a Bluetooth headphone set instead. Over the head earmuff style. The only way to go!

    I use Jaybird Bluebuds for running. They never budge. I don't like the  buds at all.

    Yeah after years of dealing with the Apple Ear buds during jogs and workouts I finally recently bought the Beats Powerbeats 2 Wireless headphones and they work great for me. Sound is fine, they stay on/in my ears, and no wires is great...

    I have a pair of the Tones as well. Love them. I use them while driving and at work. I don't use them running or working out bc I don't think they're sweatproof.

    I thought I was the only one that had this problem. Cannot stand the Apple earbuds. I use Sol Republic. They work great AND stay in your ears while doing activities.

    Can't stand Apple earbuds, they must be made for people with sticky ears

    The earpods that come with the iPhone are horrible. None I've ever had stay in my ears. I've used several brands of earbuds, but they aren't much better. I finally settled for over the head Bluetooth earphones. Works better than anything I've tried.

    Maybe I have goofy ears. Mine doesn't fall out once. The Jawbone and the BlueAnts wouldn't stay or fit in my ears. Got a Plantronic set and they are no better. Right now I am using my husbands LG's. But I think I'm going to invest in the Bose lineup. So right now I am using the Apple EarPods.

    My ears must be just as goofy then. EarPods fit perfectly, even when I'm active. I've never had luck with Bluetooth headsets though so I completely stopped trying to use them.

    The stock Apple earbuds fit and stay in my ears perfectly. They are the only earbuds I can really use comfortably. And I think the sound is pretty good if you have realistic expectations. I have pro level Audio Technica cans in my recording studio, but no way am I walking around with those things on my ears.

    Even if they were I doubt most people want the base to be jumping up and down while their running.

    Sound quality wise they are quite ok considering they are free and I'm sad I lost mine since the were the stuff in my pockets because their cheap. I have so many headphones and etc now and prefer the wireless ones for whenever I go to the gym or something. I have the beats solo 2 wireless and jaybird x2 and probably buy the new freedoms when they come out and they both (solo 2 and x2) great in the gym

    Actually, a lot of people use them for running. I don't personally do it, but apparently, a lot of folks in the running forums do.

    Then be my guest .... I still don't like the base going up and down my neck when I'm doing runs or anything faster then a walk lol. Plus they aren't sweat proof.
