    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?

    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.
