Want to buy earbuds for running

I'm looking for earbuds that offer superior sound quality and that I can wear while running. My over the ear Ravemp buds finally gave out. I haven't been able to find any decent sounding replacements that don't fall out of my ears after a few minutes of running. Price range < $75. Must be available on the internet.

Nintendo headphones

I bought Electoplankton for Nintendo DS from Japan, and it came with some free Nintendo headphones. They have a component on them near the plug, which the lead enters and exists from. It has hinges and looks like it should open, but it doesn't. I can't work out what it's for. Any ideas?

Headphones make my ears sweat

Headphones, particularly those that surround the ear, make my ears uncomfortably hot. I've tried ear buds and etymotic in the ear phones, but find them uncomfortable. Are there decent headphones that sit off the ear or lightly on the ear that won't be so hot?

What kind of big headphone should I buy?

So I have decided I need new headphones for use with my iPod and occasionally on my computer. I'm looking for big, art-school style headphones that are ear-enveloping and comfortable to wear, and also happen to sound awesome. I have the Sony MDR-V600s, but they are unsatisfactory for a variety of reasons. What I really want to know is: do any of y'all know of some big, nice headphones I can buy for less than or equal to $100? [more inside]

Does anyone make an mp3 player with speakers built in?

I don't believe in headphones. Does anyone make an mp3 player with speakers built in, like a small boombox perhaps? Seems like an obvious market (even people who DO use headphones sometimes want to share their music with others in the room), but I have yet to see one.

iPod with Hearing Aid

My father is thinking about buying an iPod. One problem though is that he has a hearing aid in one ear (90% hearing loss in one ear due to a childhood ear infection), and he'd like in-ear 'phones, like those that come with the ipod, with independent volume control - so he can turn one ear off, and shunt the stereo > mono when he has the hearing aid in, and turn one way up when he has the hearing aid out. Any ideas?
