Consider wireless Bluetooth headphones:

Re: headphones for working out

I have a pair of beats but I would not wear them for working out. They are too bulky. I sometimes use Jay bird Bluetooth headphones. I wouldn't recommend wearing headphones for oly lifting though. There's just too much movement

Re: headphones for working out

Wrap around buds can work for Weightlifting. Generally I don't like to wear headphones when I'm lifting because I don't want my phone popping out of my pocket. I also cracked a screen once because it was in my back pocket on a PR clean. Dumb. In my defense, wearing headphones helps me block out crappy music or having to hear lots of people babbling around me (JuCo ish globogym [I'm also something of an introvert so too many people and I prefer to shut them out anyways]).

What I need to do is get a small mp3 player again which I usually clip to my shorts and feed the phones behind me (with the player either above my *** or on the side of my hip).

I do see some people at the gym use old school headphones but then again they're not moving around quickly. Just typical bodybuilding or squats, presses, deads, etc.

Anytime my shoulder is close to my ear is a time when my buds might actually get knocked out, even with wraparounds. Think handstands or anything in hanging (unless your grip is wider than shoulders).

I standby and LOVE LOVE LOVE the decibullz earbud adapter things. They work with a handful of earbud brands, and make it so they will pretty much never fall out and feel great.

Do you adapt those each time you use it? Or does it harden and keep its shape?

You only shape it once. You heat it up (I used a stove, but you can also do it in the microwave), let it cool a little bit, then shape it, it hardens, and unless you change earbuds, it's set and forget. If you DO change earbuds, or maybe the fit wasn't right, you can re-mold them. They have simple instructional videos on how to do it all. After getting them and loving them, both of my roommates (runners) got them as well.
