I'm looking for some nice clip on headphones. The reason I want clip on ones is because earphones hurt, and they always fall out... :(

Can anyone recommend any good clip on headphones for less than 50?

When you say clip headphones you mean the ones that sit over your ears with the hook?

ALso what do you want them for? Because sound quality on a pair can vary so if you want it for the gym you wouldn't need to spend as much as if you wanted them for a audiophile like audio quality (aside from the fact 50 wont get you audiophile quality headphones anyway).

They will be used for just general listening, and in the gym. I'm not expecting amazing quality, but better than my current ones.

Koss KSC-735 get constant good reviews and can be had for about 10-20USD so well in your price range. I don't have any, but if you get them and don't like them, you're not out much, plus there are some mods out there to change their sound some.

If just falling out is your concern, I got my JVC FX-66 for under 30 USD. They are IEM, but come with 4 different ear pieces so you can find a snug one that is comfy.

I've actually had really good luck with the Panasonic RP HS43 (http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-RP-HS43-Clip-Headphones-System/dp/B0001IXUEE) clip-on headphones. Sound quality and range are excellent, and the price point is hard to argue with.

I don't really see the point in spending more than $20-$25 on headphones anyhow, since I've never had a pair last more than about 18-24 months tops.

The ones i use for the gym are the sennheiser omx 70 around 14-20

However, for better quality over the ear headphones you could try https://www.sonystyle.co.uk/SonyStyle/Headphones/In-Ear/MDRJ20S.CE7 again around 15 quid (although the plastic around the wire on 2 of these pairs have worn out after some time with sweat / rain exposure)

Failing that as was mentioned the in ear headphones with the adjustable heads might be a good option (I use my sony ericsson ones that came with my phone, although I know Sony make a similar if not identical model without the SE branding https://www.sonystyle.co.uk/SonyStyle/Headphones/In-Ear/MDREX35LPB.AE)

Or failing that you could look at Sennheiser CX300 http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000S8EUNM?ie=UTF8&tag=785-21&gclid=CLPls9jkoJkCFYMTzAodzx5wpQ my friend has these and uses them at the gym, and on the way to and from uni all the time, and have no complaints up till now. In fact i might pick up a pair, at 16 they are not too bad

Amazon.co.uk: Panasonic RP HS47 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Panasonic-RP-HS-47-E-A-blue/dp/B000PGVHMO/ref=sr_1_21?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1236977752&sr=8-21)... That ought to work out better for you, geographically.

Ok I just wanted to say I currently have these headphones

They look pretty similar to the other panasonic ones..is there any difference?
