Get in Gear: AirDrives Earphones

I have a love/hate relationship with earbuds. I love that I can listen to my music as loud as I want while working out, but I hate how uncomfortable those little buds can be. I'm always futzing with them to get the speaker part to fit inside my ear just right, and if they don't have that piece that hooks around the back of my ear, they end up falling out when I move. I also feel like regular earbuds are unsafe because when they're inside my ears, I can't hear anything else but my music.

Well I just discovered AirDrives Earphones ($59.99) that work differently than regular earphones. Instead of the little round speakers going inside your ear, they sit right outside the opening of your ear. That means you can listen to your music, but also have full awareness of the sounds around you. Making them a safer option for your outside runs.

They are C-shaped, so they fit securely behind your ear. They're completely waterproof so you can sweat all you want or exercise in the rain. Order them from Best Buy.

I have the same problem with the ear buds. I tried getting a "C" shaped pair (it was a SONY pair), but the curve was so large it didn't fit my ear! Any advice on that?

Hmmm, I hope that these aren't the kind of speakers that allow bystanders to 'enjoy' your music as well.

I have a pair like this (but they cost about $10), and they are awesome. I don't use earbuds at all anymore, because this type is so comfortable.
