    Something with a rubber grommet thing on work for me, sennheiser usually, the apple style ones are awful form over function.

    I have this problem, only ones I've found that don't fall out are:

    Sony MDR-E9LP

    Do you have the correct size tips fitted?

    You can also try comply foam tips, they never budge.

    Try the triple flange replacement silicon buds / tips.
    I have small ear canals and none of the stock tips would stay in very long, but these triple flange versions works a treat for me.
    They're only a few quids on our favourite auction site.

    In ear monitors are the way to go then.

    I use Shure 535se but you can get some for a lot less than that, they sit in even during exercise.

    what about the ear clips you can get to keep them in or do they not hold enough seal for them?

    most of the pairs I have bought come with different size tips for various inner ear sizes so maybe look for something that comes with options. some cheap Bluetooth ones on amazon for about £20 come with them.

    The only ones I've ever had stay in completely are ones that hook around the back of the ear.

    I've tried numerous more elegant designs that claim to be gym proof but they always disappoint. They come with multiple tip options but a few push ups and a few squat jumps later and I feel them working loose.

    I hate in ear buds and apparently have odd shaped ears as mine fall out too. The best fit I've ever found were Philips SHQ6500 BT earphones. They have a silicon inner ear hook thingy, no penetration! :p

    But looking online they are pretty fragile and I'm on my second RMA replacements so...
