Just curious what peoples' opinions are as far as what the best headphones to wear while working out. I use the regular old ear buds, but a lot of times during a metcon they will come out.

Re: Headphones

I use the ones that came with my MP3 player - I've heard good things about skull candy.

Re: Headphones

I like the ones that hook over my ears for that reason. I found cheapo ones at Target that worked great for like 3 years. I don't mind if they get sweaty either.

Re: Headphones

Sony hook-around-the-ears ones. Except I don't like that the cords face forward, as I like to run them down my back.

Re: Headphones

I have an older version of these MX-85's from Sennheiser (W/F Safe). The "twist-to-fit" feature is great; they have never fallen out of my ears like regular earbuds always did. No problems getting clogged by sweat, either. If you're in a position to pay for an above-average product (at $70), these are a good choice.

Re: Headphones

I use the Sony NWZ-W202, they are actually wrap around headphones with a built in MP3 player, so no cords. They're only $60 or so. I have yet for them to fall off, definitely recommend them as a second player for the gym

Re: Headphones

I've used several types of headphones, but it comes down to a matter of preference. I like the in-ear types. I like the sound quality of the JVC and the price, but my favorites are the Shure SE115.

I've also used the Bose in-ear headphones, but I don't get a perfect fit. They have a tendency to bounce literally out of my ear. If I was in the market again, I would look into the Monster Dre Beats in-ear ones as well.

They fall out too, kind of a pain.

I use Rocketfish Bluetooth headphones. No wires to snag and send them flying across the room.

Re: Headphones

I use Koss Sparkplugs. They have a foam cone which fits snugly in your ear. In terms of sound quality, I wish hey had a bigger bass, but for working out, they're fine.

Double-unders are the only exercise where they have come loose.

Koss have an unconditional lifetime guarantee. If they break, send them back & you get a new pair. I'm on my 3rd pair.
