Recommend me a pair of headphones for working out

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am thinking this is the best place to put this....

I am looking for a set of headphones for working out.

Need to be 'sports' (and good ones, with sweat resistance and ear sealing/draining), preferably noise isolating, and have an iphone remote.

I have used various sport headphones from Sony and Phillips with pretty good success over the years, but my gym is really loud, so I want to get noise isolating phones, and an iphone remote since thats what I use now.


Any recommendations?

By noise isolating you mean in-ear canal phones, right? Not some big ass Bose phones.

correct, sorry, either buds, clip on's or over the ear with buds that seal the ear pretty good.

I use JVC Marshmallows. They're cheap (on Amazon Prime), comfortable and stay in your ears.

I use Skullcandy at the gym. The gym tends to be noisy, but although the headphones are not noise-canceling, they block the extraneous noise well.

Any recs for something I could take in the steam room, MP3 player and headphones, or is that just not do-able?

Are these recommendations for headphones that are perspiration resistant?

All of the headphones in Sennheiser's Adidas line are sweat and water resistant and have Kevlar reinforced cables. I've been very happy with my PMX 680s.

I am currently considering buying a pair of these. How long have they lasted for you? The only thing I dont like is that I like the OMX 680i Sports and the volume/track control seem rather larger than the other in ear models.

Can anyone recommend me a small mp3 player that withstands rain and sweat? I am thinking about getting the ipod nano but am concerned about the moisture factor.

I've only had them since the end of August, so I can't speak to longevity. The most popular small MP3 players amongst athletes seem to be the iPod Shuffle and the Sansa Clip.

I have a set of Shure -not sure which ones but they are awesome.
