    I want to buy some in ear headphones that I can wear when walking. I have a pair of Senheisser CX300 s and whilst these produce a good quality I hate that thud you get on foot impact when walking - I just can't listen to music with this irritation . I am happy sot spend up to about £80 on a pair but I don't want the same problem.

    Are there any in ear phones that don't give this vibration issue?

    Thanks in advance

    Hey Mashworth ,

    I would like to give you 2-3 options....

    In my personal opinion Beyerdynamic DTX35 will be the best option for you. I like these headphones because of few reasons :-
    1) It is affordable.
    2) You are comfortable with them while walking/workout.
    3) It has so amazing sound quality which gives you relaxation.

    The second which I like is Sony MDR-Q68LW.They have nice styling and build quality.I like these headphones mainly because of their compact size.They are stable during workout.

    I can happily recommend these two headphones for workouts.

    Headphones for walking

    If that thud sound really annoys you, as suggested by andrewscott it might be worth thinking about an on-ear pair instead of in-ear.

    I regularly use my Grado iGrado headphones for walking. These headphones sound INCREDIBLE for the money. They have the same drivers as the SR60i, which makes them a bit of a bargain.

    The iGrado is particularly good for walking as it lets you stay away of your surroundings. You feel far more connected with what's going on around you.

    I was actually just looking at the iGrado, here's a review I found: Grado iGrado Headphones Review

    I've been using the Bose MIE2 since I got my iPhone and absolutely love them.

    Hope that helps!
