I find myself with the need to reach out again and ask if any of you have suggestions for wired earbuds.

It seems my efforts to go wireless and employ Bluetooth have been met with nothing but frustration and disappointment.

My conclusion is that the handy little device in my chest that keeps my heart beating, causes too much interference between my phone, when either in a pocket in my pants or jacket, and the ear buds.

Often times the disruption is so bad, it reminds me of the early days of the ever popular Discman. The days before there was “skip protection”. Made one wish for the woof old days with a trusty cassette!

I digress…

preparing the perfect playlist for a workout turnip style

I do enjoy the different Jaybird wireless models I have had, when they work, both for sound quality, battery life and comfort. I also fondly remember having a couple pairs of Urbanears that were really awesome as well. I really liked the braiding on the wires with the Urbanears. They didn’t tangle like the rubber coating. Bonus.

I’m looking for something that will be good for wearing while gaming and while exercising.

My earbud issues stem from having small ear holes, so they constantly fall out.

    …and I am sure that being sweaty doesn’t help when you are exercising as well.
