    Hi folks

    My current headphones are knackered so its time to get new ones. I use them mainly for running or when I'm travelling. Can anyone recommend something thats good on the ears as well as a bit long lasting.

    I know with headphones sky is the limit but I'm not looking for anything too expensive - just something nice and cheap. And yeah, they have to be the light the clip on ones cuz the ear bud types won't fit into my ears lol. Cheers.

    It's hard to find well regarded clip-ons these days, Koss are one of the few manufacturers doing a half-decent job of it. If you want to spend more to get better sound, I'd recommend choosing IEMs instead.

    Oh thanks for the link mate. Koss don't seem too bad to be honest. Sorry forgive my lack of knowledge in this field but is IEM a brand? And where can I get them from

    They're not a brand I've ever heard of before, so I'd be wary, at least when it comes to choosing them over the Koss ones above. I'd recommend having a search on www.head-fi.iorg to see if you can find anything on them.

    Cheers mate, I think I will just go with the Koss. Just read some reviews and people have said great stuff about them.

    I hope they are ok for use during running/gyming and dont fall off your ears so easily?
