Monster iSport ($149.95- $179.95)
These sweatproof, washable earphones stay put with the help of a small in-ear anchor clip. In addition, the buds boast noise-isolating capabilities that help you block out unwanted noise at the gym, but keep you aware of your surroundings during an outdoor routine. The eartips also block out water and wear well with helmets and goggles, so don’t hesitate to take them on your annual snowboarding trip. Though the audio feature works with all iPods, the ControlTalk remote and mic only work with certain models (iPod nano 4th and 5th generations; iPod classic 120GB and 160GB only; iPod touch 2nd and 3rd generation, iPhone 3GS; and iPad). Spring for the yellow pair ($179.95) to help support Livestrong.

Our tester said: "It was a little hard to get used to the unique fit at first, but once I did, these buds weren't going anywhere. They fit tight inside my ears and completely blocked out any outside noise. While it takes a little wiggling to get them to fit into your ears correctly, once they're in, they're comfortable and the sound quality is fantastic. Be sure to do a lot of trial and error with the different earbuds/clips to make sure you're getting the right fit."
