Help! I need headphones for running!

I'm really struggling to get in-ear headphones suitable for running with half decent sound for small ears. My most recent purchase of yurbuds, a product aimed at women with smaller ears, was a failure. The smallest size kept falling out and after correspondence with the yurbuds people (including sending pics of my ear with and without their product in) they concluded their product was no good for me.

Does anyone have some good product recommendations?

    Rommel I have been using the Skullcandy Method earbuds recently. Got them from read morehttps://tenpire.com/best-running-headphones/. They are pretty inexpensive and sweat resistant so they are perfect for me! I have also been looking at the wireless ones but they look too expensive for me at the moment

    Faymundo Aftershokz are the only ones recommended by England Athletics.

    The AfterShokz Way

    Bone conduction is a natural part of the hearing process—sound travels through our eardrums and bones simultaneously. We've taken the concept to the next level through development of a suite of proprietary audio technologies and design patents. The result: headphones that deliver unrivaled situational awareness and comfort.


    Transducers guide mini vibrations through the cheekbones to the inner ears, delivering sound without plugging or covering them

    Le Chef AKA Dan A copy and paste from a post of mine on a different thread " use full ear headphones sometimes (much read morebetter sound) and got these on Amazon, great quality, volume and sound. You can also switch to wired mode and raise either speaker away from your ear if you need (traffic etc)

    jgi751987 Have you tried the Urbanz Sportz or Strive ? Both have in-ear design and come with smaller buds? I think can be found on Amazon and eBay however here's the link to them both.http://www.cyw-urbanz.com/sports-gym-runningheadphones.html

    Marry93 I think it is difficult to choose the best bluetooth headphones for gym or running. But In my opinion I think you should choose Sony SBH80 Bluetooth in-ear headphones. With battery life enough time for a day about 6 hours and delivers better sound for running

    yamsteroo After breaking my ultra adjustable Nike headphones and finding it would be £80 to replace them, I read moreended up with the Karrimor neck band phones too!  (after a few hit and misses with over ear Philips, JVCs and the likes ... they all fell out even when walking).The sound quality isn't fantastic but hey, I'm out running and kind of like hearing if a mad axe murderer is sneaking up behind me so I don't have the music that loud anyway.  I've used them rain and shine for a few months now and they've been great.  Only thing I don't like is the colour but at least I can find them easily ....

    gwendoll16 I have the Phillips 'round the ear' ones and they have always been great. I rarely listen to music read morewhile running any more but would recommend them highly. I use them smallest size buds and they're very comfy.I also didn't get on with the Yurbuds which really bugged me because I like the idea of them I just have such little ears!. It's good of them to have gone through all the steps with you though.
