I'm looking for really great headphones with really great construction for running but can't find it.

I try new headphones every month or so, but the only ones I can find are low quality with a really bad fastening system.

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

This isn't really a question about "Audio Recording & Production." What you are looking for is a general audiophile site. – Robert Cartaino Apr 27 '11 at 4:11

I really like Sony's low end headphones. They usually sell for around $10 usd and sound pretty good.

Since you will be running with them, I recommend the type that hook on your ear. I haven't done much running with them, but I have done lots of yard work without any issues. They have a nice clear full sound, though they are a bit weaker on the low end than some of the other models.
