Best headphones I've tried are the Sony MDR-EX71's. They are a "bud"
headphone with phenomenal sound quality. They are not typical buds in that
they have amazing bass and NEVER fall out of your year. They kinda snap into
your ear canal. They can be bought for about 30 bucks on amazon. Check out
some reviews on the web. You won't be dissapointed.

FWIW, I've very much enjoyed the sound-isolation of the Shure E2c earphones
( They fit snuggly in the
ear with the cord wrapping behind the head. They cost ~$100, however. Worth
every penny as far as I'm concerned.

The Sporta Pros can indeed be worn behind or over the head. However, I find
them uncomfortable to wear in the behind the head configuration. Plus,
because of their folding design, the Sporta Pros have a wire going to each
earpiece, making them more difficult to remove than phones that have a wire
to only one side. That's why I'm looking for non-folding, behind-the-head
phones that sound as good as the Sporta Pros. Maybe I'll just order the Koss
Streetstyles and take my chances.
