will this product work with a 1st Gen. iPod?

Have 1st Gen iPod and use for running only. Need ear buds that are not "in-ear." The sound quality is great but they fall out when you get sweaty and do not go back in. Not a fun juggle while running. Sometimes the endcaps fall off too and get stuck in your ear OR fall to the ground. Also not cool while running. The normal issue earbuds work fine but they are hard to find. My iPod is like... ten years old now.

    Yes, but the remote control and microphone will not function - they will work as simple headphones. These units are however of an in-ear design and will not sound very good if you don't insert them in to the ear canal (in particular you'll loose a lot of bass). They do stick in very well though, and most people get used to in-ear earphones after a few days. :)
