What headphones should I buy for running and the gym? Wish list: Sounds better, and doesn't fall out as easily as the Apple earbuds; lets more ambient sound through than those in-ear headphones with silicone tips; includes an inline microphone and controls that actually work with an Android phone.

I need headphones for running with. I know there are other headphone questions out there but I have really specific needs:
1. No bluetooth as my MP3 doesn't support it
2. I have really small ear holes so the larger ones don't stay in, I can use the smallest covers for the in-ear ones
3. Do the over-ear hook ones get in the way of one's glasses? Experience on this please!
4. I need a wire that's long enough to get to my waist belt without an extension (with a linker thing that flaps around)
5. I don't want white ones!
6. Available in the UK.
Thanks all - hope someone can help!

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.
