Question

Non-noise canceling earbuds please

by jzizzy / November 20, 2011 6:50 AM PST

I am looking for earbuds that are not noise canceling. I run outside and walk from place to place a lot and want to be able to hear my surroundings, like cars, for safety. I would prefer earbuds or around the ear earbuds. I would like them around or under $100
