Anyone familiar with Auria? It sounds like they are earbuds designed to stay in even during workouts and not block out other sounds, so they will be safer when exercising outside.

That all sounds great, but how is the sound quality?

How about some on-ear headphones made by the Joker. This is what he listens to for relaxation purposes after a long day trying to kill the Batman. grin shocked

I'm going to give it a shot and order them. I'd give everyone a sound review on them, but as they will be a gift I don't know that I'll listen to them much/at all.

The receiver of them is not an audiophile by any means, and will care more about if they stay in.

Grado wouldn't work anyway...she specifically wants in ear, not on ear.

There are Grado earbuds. I preferred the Etymotics by a fairly long shot--and the Grados were more expensive.

Thanks for the info, Ken. I am *ahem* joining a gym and find myself in the market for some earbuds for my iPhone.

I had not heard of Etymotics before. Looks intriguing. Are you refernecing the 6i?

Yes, those are the ones I have. I had a thread on my headphone testing around here somewhere-I think I tried Sennheisers, Etymotics, Grados, and Metalsomethingorother.

Addendum: buy several sets from headphone.com like I did, and send back the ones you don't like. I think IEMs are the sort of thing where the selection is a lot more personal than speakers--they've got to fit your ears to work. headphone.com has an excellent return policy.
