Summary: I use the Sennheiser CX380 with my iPod at the Gym. They stay in my ear during my 1 hour bike ride even after sweating, so I have no complaints. The bass is very good. The headphones are lightweight and comfortable. I highly recommend Sennheiser headphones. I currently own the Mx85's which are also very good and 2 other high-end models that I use with my Stereo.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Love the sporty Orange. Designed to place the headphone cords behind your neck rather than in front for purposes of running. Slightly heavier cord. A little on the long side. But I've learned to use the cord under my shirt and behind my neck which now serves its real purpose of being my ultimate running headphones! Enhanced my workouts by 5x due to better sound and bass!
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: The problem with reviewing headphones is making a comparison. In my case this is the first set of "better" head phones that I've owned, so I can only compare them to the cheapies that came with the device. They appear well made, the cord is adequate for any activity and the sound is good, particularly at the higher frequencies. The more substantial you are able to insert the bud into your ear, the better the sound- hence the problem I encountered.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Great Sound, Lightweight
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Too Much Ambient Noise
Summary: So far so good, these headphones stay comfortably in my ears while working out and provide an awesome sound. The deal was sweetened by the rebate being offered right now and getting a set of CX300s.
These earphones provide great sound and stay in on the run. Recommended

Summary: I'd actually give these 4.5/5. Pros - They work really well with my ipod. I put the small (interchangeble) earpieces on and they actually stayed in for the entire run (on the road which is more jarring than the treadmill). Whereas my standard ipod earphones fall out every 10 paces or so and I spend the entire run pushing them into my ears. The external noise cancellation is quite obvious to me too - you have to look around for cars etc.
