Earlier this week we featured a roundup of mainly earbuds that are great for working out. Although they're fine for some ears, we've never been able to recreate with them in. We spend half our time getting them snagged on things or adjusting them to stay put. So for those like us, here's 5 wrap arounds that get the job done!

After many travels around the internet we discovered that when it comes to wrap around headphone models, you either go old school or new school. Cans, or one of the 4 models pictured below. Most of the options available are all forms of these few basic ones and so we're calling them the cream of the crop. See if there's a good fit for you below!

1. PMX 680 Sports: This model from Adidas and Sennheiser is one of our favorite picks. It's well wearing, comfortable and doesn't pinch, poke or need adjusting. Our only complaint is that it fits so well, if you're a glasses wearer they might prove difficult. $55.95 (on sale) at Amazon.

2. Philips/Nike Aero SHJ070: Some folks, no matter how hard they try just can't do anything that resembles an ear bud... even if it wraps around your head to help stay in position. This pair is extra light and has a cult following of people who won't buy anything but. You can find them on Amazon for $54.95.

3. Sony Mdr-As50G: Although these don't have a rigid neck band, we're including them in this line up. They stay put and hold tight without being too harsh on your ears. If you can wear ear buds but don't choose to while recreating, these might be a good fit for you (plus they have a short cord to hook to an arm band mp3 player). $31.76 at Amazon.

4. H2O Audio Surge Sportwrap: These bad boys are fully waterproof and have a band without the rigid placement other options provide. The buds dangle from the brace and allow the user to place them comfortably where their ears sit in relation to everything else. $49.95 from Amazon.
