Running Entertainment

I just recently wrecked a fairly expensive MP3 player from running with it so much. Anyone know what a good MP3 player, that is fairly inexpensive, that is great for running with. Going along with that any recommendations for headphones to look into also? I can go without for awhile but I do love to run on the track while listening to something other than my breathing.

I use the Zire 31, by PalmOne. It cost $50 and has all the basic palm stuff like Calendar, Task, Address book, and so on. Also, what you want, it plays mp3 just fine, uses SD Memory Cards(dirt cheap) so you can put 512MB, 1GB, and or I think 2Gb worth of stuff on the cards. Nothing flashy, but it works great and you can't beat the price, tell me what the Ipod or the others have that you really need for the price of $300 or more....

Oh wow, that looks great. Thanks! Know any good headphones? I didn't think they would be such a big deal but I've tried the earbuds that came with the MP3 player I broke and one of the ears always falls out. Can't find a set of headphones that fits and doesn't fall off while I run.

I'm not a head phone expert, but personally there is little point buying the expense earbuds. I just use a cheap pair from K-mark, so I can listen to tunes while running around at my work. Here are some I found on Newegg for you:

They come in a bunch of different colors...

The other if you don't like the first design:

Thanks for the help! Just ordered those Sony MDR-J10s! If they work out I'll get a 2nd pair for my girlfriend Smile
