i use something like Sony MDR J10 over the ear jobbies with an inline apple remote (you can’t really use it for more than stop/start/volume and next track though so have you playlist ready before hand) that clips nicely onto my camelbak strap. The main reason for choosing these was comfort on long rides.Posted 5 years agoRoter SternMember
I used to have a pair of those Sony earphones but lost them while boarding last year. They are OK for riding but they did tend to slip out during heavy exercise when you get sweaty. I currenty have a set of Phillips ones that are supposed to be designed for sport but are pretty awful both is sound and they never really fit into the ear that well and you need to turn the volume up high to stop the noise of the rushing wind.Posted 5 years agocitizeninsaneMember
Used to use Sennheisers, but switched to these after reading so many excellent reviews.
‘What Hifi’ gave them 5 stars and the sound kicks the arse off the Sennheisers I had that were twice the price. They’ve got mic and all the controls you’re wanting for skipping tracks/volume etc. Doubt I’d buy anything else these days.Posted 5 years ago

*resists urge to comment on wisdom of cycling with ear buds in*
All my ear buds break, are there any that last?
Why? I’d say its the cyclist community responsibility to warn one of its members of sensory deprivation and the effect of pressure in the inner ear on balance, before he gets hurt, don’t you?
Still it’s his choice….. As long as he doesn’t reappear complaining about drivers/walkers and so forthPosted 5 years agorobownsMember
I use these, come with attachments that route the cable round the ear, very secure when riding.Posted 5 years agosimonlovell999Member

Have to spend a fair amount of time getting to and from trails on a canal towpath and this drives me absolutely **** nuts. Loads of muppets walking, walking dogs, jogging, riding bikes – all completely and utterly oblivious to anything or anyone coming up behind them.Posted 5 years agozokesMember

Also blocking out your only method of sensing impending danger from behind or to the side when cycling seems particularly crazyPosted 5 years agotheblackmountMember
>I use the first version of these as they allow you to still hear the traffic.<
Nup, I still don’t get it. In some respects I find that even more moronic than shutting out all other sound. Why is there such a “need” to take portable electronic devices into the country? I’m out on my bike to escape all that sh1t…. increasingly I’m met with an immovable wall of idiots who think it’s cool to be wired to the moon while out for a bloody walk.Posted 5 years ago
