Recommend headphones for working out? - Page 3

post #31 of 37

Have been using and recommending Shure's. There relatively price ones are just under $100 or $49 for starting price.

I cannot wear earbuds as they fall out of my ears. Whenever I buy an i-product, the earbuds go straight to the trash. I need the kind that hook behind the ears.

I had a pair of Phillips that I bought at the drug store that lasted me a couple years but sounded like crap. I travel a lot for work so I did not want to have to carry workout headphones and "good" headphones. So, I decided to combine the two. I went upmarket with a set of Bang & Olufsen that I purchased on Amazon in orange:

Really happy with them and they have the best earphone sound by far. The aluminum and adjustibility is really nice. My girlfriend is a musician and her producer sent her one of her tracks that he was working on. She borrowed my earphones to listed to her track and she was blow away. If you have $165 to spend I highly recommend these.

I have the Sennheiser OMX 680i

I got these for free from the apple store because I had to wait for several hours while they dealt with my computer. So far they work really well for the gym. The sound quality is definitely nothing special, but they are great with an ipod at the gym.

So, I've had these for about a month now and they are ideal for my workouts. They have a bright tone and are loud compared to others I have tried. That is perfect for a noisy gym when you want to hear the news, etc.

I wan't sure about the around the ear thing but they are quite comfortable. I can also hear people talking if needed. These don't muffle outside noise which I think is good for safety reasons.

To me, audiophile sound quality isn't the best for a gym. It blocks some outside noise and while working out seems muffled. I use completely different headphones for travel and music appreciation when I want to escape and really listen to music.

Those are ironman yurbuds right? I think you can actually buy the cool rubber tip thing that makes them stay in so well as a attachment for ipod headphones, if anyone is looking to save some money (I believe they're around $20)

You have a link for that? I'm trying out the M6's tonight after my Koss Porta Pro's crapped out on me.

But you can buy these for about $20. There is a big difference between the plastic or hard rubber loops that go behind the ear. What is impressive about these is that they are soft and a bit gummy so that they don't move even when you are sweaty.
