There are other choices. Sony, for instance, makes several radios that fit right on your head. One style, the SRF-H5 Street Style Sports Headset ($50), fits like regular stereo headphones. Sony's SRF-HM01V actually fits on like a headbandwith nothing to loop over your skull or stick in your pocket. It's about $60 (USD), or 120 New Zealand bucks. Panasonic makes a radio called the RF-SW70R ShockWave Headphone Radio ($50), which is designed to be carried in your hand, on a lanyard around your neck, or in a pocket.
Of course, I really don't advocate wearing any such thing. Maybe you're running someplace where traffic isn't an issueon the beach or somewhere like that. But, if you're in an urban setting, I think blocking out the sound around you is a safety hazard. I'll assume you're safe and watchful, but it's still something to consider.
