The iPod ear buds work fine foir sitting on your butt on the couch, in class, on the bus, but for running in our desert heat, I am finding the fit just does not work.
Yes, the ear buds are cheap. I am not audi snob, so the sound quality is not a burning issue for me.
But when I go for a run, the pounding on the ground, the swinging of the pod, and the sweat pouring down my head (it can be well over 110 degrees here) make for a slippery fit that is not very useful.
Or more likely, my body is mis-shaped to typical specifications. Not the first time for that!
I could go out and get the fancy custom buds, but hanging $200 phones on a Shuffle seems off kilter.
Does anyone have any recommendations? I will likely revert to my folding, over the head light weight Sony phones.
PS- I never realized how hard it is to do a macro lens self portrait of one’s own ear ;-)
