Default Headphones

I'm looking to get a new pair of headphones that I can use mainly while at the gym. I currently use the default ones that come with the iPhone but they suck and never stay in my ear. I'm looking for ones that hook around the ear and are sweat resistant. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good brand? Il hoping I can snag a nice cyber Monday deal.

I do not carry any right now. It is a very competitive category. There are over 50,000 offerings. A lot of my fellow amazon merchants have them on sale this weekend though.

My brother in law told me about a website named thewirecutter.com and I went on there and looked through some options and ordered a pair already. Got Sony MDRAS800AP Active headphones for $48.

Default Re: Headphones

These are the ones I have been using for years. They may be hard to find because they are an old cheap model. But they are made by "h2o Audio." They are called Sports series. I like the coiled cord as it gives good extension and it hooks behind the ear like you want. You want something with a plug for a gym so you can plug into the TV. Bluetooth is great but you can't bluetooth to the tv as far as I know.

Default Re: Headphones

It's been so long since I've had a set of buds or phones that I felt like were worth the money. There are some great products on the market, but they're mostly out of my price range.

I've certainly never found value in a set like you're describing, despite several attempts. I hope you have better luck than I have!

Can't go wrong with skull candy. I loved mine until I left them with my cousin and he lost them. Just don't overpay for Beats or Bose unless you're only in it for a fashion statement because that's what everyone else has. There are plenty of companies out there that make the same quality as Bose for about half the price. In fact, there are so many manufacturers and styles now, I just can't keep up. The market has exploded in the last 5-8 years. I like Sennheiser myself.

Meh, I won't give Monster anything out of principle. A lot of headphones are purely fashion statements now. Which is fine I guess..

Default Re: Headphones

Not necessarily headphones for the gym, but you can not go wrong with Grado, sennheiser or psb. Also consider B&W or Shure. Again, more than you might want to spend on gym headphones, but if you are considering buying some that actually sound good, look at Grado.

I have a bluetooth wireless ear buds. Jaybird BlueBuds X....

They last about 4 hours..I know because I ran for such long and they gave out. you can set them up two ways, behind the head or below the chin...

No complaints. Though this is my second pair. The first stopped holding a charge after 3 months. Was a quick replacement though, purchased though Amazon. had the second for over a year and no problems.

Ironman earbuds, they twist into your ear and never fall out. Made for working out. I use them doing P90X and Insanity. Even bought a second set in case I lose the first ones. They also make a set that hooks if thats your flavor.

I use yurbuds at the gym. Takes maybe a time or two to get used to them if you're used to regular earbuds. No issues with them when I'm working out and they really reduce outside noise, much to my wife's chagrin.

Anybody keep their device in their pocket while they work out? I do, and so I can't ever have a pair of earbuds (almost always Skull Candy) last more than a few months before the sound starts going out. If anyone's got a set of earbuds or headphones they've had success with in this case, I'd love to hear about it.

I do. I use the yurbuds Ironman twist-in ear buds. I just run the cord under my shirt. I'll run it up the front or the back depending on what I'm doing. They have lasted about a year now.

Thanks. I will give those a look. I always run cords under my shirt, too...the cords just always end up going bad near the actual plug from being in my pockets. Might just be because I buy cheap ones.
