Default looking for on-ear sports phones 50-70$

I'm looking for 50-70$ headphones.
I want them to not be in ear - since it is a design I personally don't feel comfortable with (although I know it is most common for sports).

Since it is for sport, regular on ear just don't sit firmly enough on the ear and so you have to adjust them too frequently during the workout which is annoying.

There for what seems like the best design to me is behind the head.
I've had some experience with that design and I find it very good for sports.
The only downside is that I just didn't find good headphones in that category.
It is either around the 10-15$ which is decent but not more, or it spikes to the 100$+ for no understandable reason.

another pro for this design is the fact that it isn't noise canceling which is very important to me.
while music helps me and motivates me through a workout, I fear to get too attached to it and to forget where I am, especially urban/park runs and such.
so hearing the environment is very important to me.

also since it is for sport I need a durable design,
something that can survive sweat/mild rain, perhaps mud and just general out-door conditions.
