    Does anyone have one of the iphone/ipod touch arm cases? I'd like to get one for my moto droid. I like to listen to internet radio and podcasts at gym and I was wondering if anyone here has experience with any case they considered good.

    They look like they should fit size wise...

    I just ordered this one. My only worry is whether I will be able to hit the top button to wake the phone!

    Personally i just use a sansa clip to workout in. 1gb and super tiny. It never breaks.

    That button annoys the crap outta me :( I think what you could do is cut a hole so you can hit it better.

    I'm actually gonna check this one out, myself. Most armbands I've found have had a ridiculous need to be able to double as a belt-clip attachment, and have been incredibly flimsy and flopped around while running.

    These ones, much like the Nike+ band for the iPod Nano, just seem like they hold the device so much more snug.

    I ordered and received that armband last week. Don't waste your time and money. I'm going to send it back. It's clearly not designed for the Droid. The phone hangs out of the top of the case, and I wouldn't trust my phone to stay in while I am running. Also, the sides of the touch screen are obscured by the border of the case.

    thanks for the review. i also didn't need all of the other crap. besides, the image clearly shows an LG phone...

    anyone have any luck with a better solution? also, what kind of headphones are people using? 3-ways or just regular?

    No problem. I'm going to add a review on Amazon soon, so other people aren't duped. In the interim, I've just set the Droid in the drink cup on the treadmill at the gym. As far as headphones go, I've had a lot of trouble in the past keeping buds in my ears, but I've had decent success with these. I tried these, but the adjustable arm didn't stay in place tightly enough to keep them in my ears.

    oh. i hate those. lol. i don't have any problems with buds, i just want to know if people have been using any with the built in mic (3-way). the only pair of headphones that i have that have the mic are the ones i got with my Razr and they have a mini USB on one end. lol.

    Aye, it does show a non-Droid in the phone, but as it had shown the "custom-designed faceplate" for the DROID, I thought it would at least be somewhat reliable.
