/ Which style of headphones for running?
I have used in ear buds , but when I get hot and sweaty, they tend to slip out (although i threw away the other size rubber buds that came with them new...maybe a bigger size would be better fit). Need a new pair and am wondering if the hook over style would be better?
I use the in-ear buds but then I often have my ears covered - either by a hat in the winter or a headband when it's warmer (to keep my hair out of my face).
I'm wishing they would invent tiny little ear buds that sit in the ear with no wires.
When on road I want to hear when the b****rs are going to run me over. When off road I want to hear things like birds etc.

Agreed, why on earth wear headphones whilst running in the countryside? Baffles me, I don't run on roads so that doesn't apply.
None! I like to hear the birds and sounds of nature - there was a Blackbird singing this evening.
As long as the sound isn't too high you can still hear the birdies - A big fat buzzard in a tree drowned out Iron Maiden today!
I use a seinheiser/adidas thing that wraps around the back of my head. I find the insert ones always seem to fall out eventually. A remote comtrol is handy too to skip the occasional song that just isnt doing it for you.
I wear galsses so over the ear/hang-on's don't work for me.
Music is a great motivator for me when running around the town. Better than listening to cars revving around and kids shouting insults at me!
