Advice on headphones

I recently bought an iRiver flash mp3 player and I don't like the ear buds that came with it. They're too big and they fall out of my ears. I want some headphones like ear buds but with a headband. Preferrably one that wraps behind your head since I'm using them to exercise. I bought a cheap pair at wal-mart. The brand is Maxell or something and they sound horrible. So I was wondering if anyone had any advice. I looked on iRiver's website and they didn't have any head phones.

thanks

yeah I can search amazon.com too but what I wanted was some advice from people who may have bought some really good ones and wanted to recommend them.

the customer reviews usually don't help that much.

Ok, all compact in-ear headphones will sound like crap. If I was to get a set, I'd probably get one of those Sonys. If you want decent sound you need to go with over the ear phones. Sennheiser are good and Grado are better.

Try to find one with a frequency response of 20-20,000mhz. That's a "normal" range for us humans. If you want more bass, look for something lower than 20. (left number) If you prefer more highs, look for some with over 20,000. My two cents. Sony have some good and cheap w/in 20-30$
