I enjoy my padded, over-the-ear Skullcandy headphones, so I purchased the Skullcandy Chops in-ear buds with clips to use on runs and at the gym. Unfortunately, I don't love them as much as my "at-home" pair of Skullcandy headphones. The sound is of decent quality, but the comfort factor just isn't there. The clips bother me, and I've worn many behind-the-ear headphones in the past, especially with my penchant for running. I couldn't seem to get the left ear bud to stay in place during my run, either... leading me to believe that the cushion for the ear bud was too large for my ear and wasn't offered in other sizes or cushion levels. These didn't feel snug and secure to me... only annoying as they pressed against the back of my ear in the same manner as a pair of eyeglasses that doesn't fit quite right and needs a professional adjustment. I'll go back to my old headphones until I find a replacement.
